holy shit this deserves way more fucking notes
i can’t reblog it enough, please get this through your skulls. i can’t walk home at night past 10 pm without being terrified that every guy that hollers at me is going to follow me home. it’s fucked up. it’s unfair. our culture sucks. we need to fix it. rape is never okay. never. if the rapist is the girl’s boyfriend it still counts. rape is rape. no is no. no answer is no. you shouldn’t beg and plead until someone’s uncomfortable. take the hint. end this bullshit.
The Land of Stories is now available in Hebrew
OMG I just saw a picture of Louis and I was SURE it was a punk!louis photoshop, But then I realized that it was just him.
What the HELL is going on?
in israel we don’t say “i love you”, we say “אני אוהב אותך” which translates to “i love you”. i think that’s not fucking interesting for anyone.
I’m trying to look into a particular word that’s mentioned in Matthew 19:10-12. The word is saris and is translated into English via Greek as eunuch in all the Bible translations I’ve read (thankyou online bible sites). However like many words, saris seems to have a few meanings that rely on…
I’ve seen you’ve already got a lot of help on this matter, but I decided to do my own research. because saris is in fact a word in Hebrew, And I, as an Hebrew speaker, wanted to look for other meanings for the word, as you suggested.
So obviously, I came across what the other girl was talking about. there is three kinds of eunuchs: 1. someone who’s born this way or born without a clear sexual definition. 2. someone who’s castrated by other. 3. someone that castrated themselves, in order to obtain a job that required it or to silence their sexual urges or for self abuse.
But as you said, saying somone is born eunuch is tricky. So I looked further more, and while looking for the dictionary meaning and origin of the Hebrew word saris I found out a few things.
Firstly, It said that someone can be born eunuch by simply being born without testicles. Even though I imagine there’s not many people that born this way these days. It may have happened more regularly in those days due to lack of medicine, sterilized places and equipment, medical knowledge and so on. and I can also imagine it had some sort of meaning those days, maybe those babies have become servants of the king later on or something.
Secondly, I found that the origin of the word saris is from the Akkadian language. In which ša rēši is literally ‘of the head’. As in the servant or guard of the king (the head of the kingdom). taking that meaning of the word could mean that someone who was born a saris means someone who was born a servant of the king, probably the son another saris.
I hope I helped you even more. And I think it certainly makes you look at it differently.
