Italy - The Centurion

A centurion (Latin: centurio; Ancient Greek: κεντυρίων) was a professional officer of the Roman army after the Marian reforms of 107 B.C. In the Roman infantry, centurions initially commanded a centuria or “century”. Centuries, or centuriae, developed from the Roman tribal system under the Servian reforms and could contain 200 to 1000 men. Later, generals and Caesars further manipulated these numbers with double and half-strength units. Julius Caesar, for instance, made the first century double strength.

Centurions often suffered heavy casualties in battle, generally fighting alongside the legionaries they commanded. They usually led from the front, occupying a position at the front right of the century formation. They could be identified by the transverse horse-hair crest on top of their helmet, their metal greaves and (unlike the legionaries) the sword worn on the left, like all Roman officers. They led and inspired their men by example. They also sought to display the skill and courage that may have brought them to their rank in the first place. It is for these reasons that they often suffered a disproportionate number of casualties.

Being held personally responsible for the training and discipline of the legionaries under their command, centurions had a well-deserved reputation for dealing out harsh punishment. In The Annals, Tacitus tells the story of one known as ‘Cedo Alteram’ - which roughly translates to ‘Gimme Another’: “The mutinous soldiers thrust out the tribunes and the camp-prefect; they plundered the baggage of the fugitives, and then killed a centurion, Lucilius, to whom, with soldier’s humour, they had given the nickname ‘Gimme Another’, because when he had broken one vine-stick across a soldier’s back, he would call in a loud voice for another… and another.” The vine-stick mentioned above by Tacitus was called a vitis; it was a symbol of the centurion’s authority and the implement with which he would mete out punishment.

Evidence suggests that centurions had important social status and held powerful positions in society. They seem to have received their status according to their rank. On retirement they could be eligible for employment as Lictors. Centurions had to be literate, have connections (letters of recommendation), be at least 30 years of age, and had already served a few years in the military.

"The centurion in the infantry is chosen for his size, strength and dexterity in throwing his missile weapons and for his skill in the use of his sword and shield; in short for his expertness in all the exercises. He is to be vigilant, temperate, active and readier to execute the orders he receives than to talk; Strict in exercising and keeping up proper discipline among his soldiers, in obliging them to appear clean and well-dressed and to have their arms constantly rubbed and bright."

-(Vegetius. De Re Militari, II, 14 )

i’ve noticed that being anti-“anti-tumblr SJ” is the new cool thing right now and while i’ve grown to hate labels of this sort i just have to address the sentiment behind this because it’s wrong as all hell

being “anti-tumblr SJ” is not being anti-social justice in general. it’s disliking a particular brand of online activism —the type that is abusive, counter-productive or even sometimes extremely damaging. there are very specific and valid reasons for disliking this “movement” (if you want to call it that), and deflecting from them in order to make some tired, generic accusation to the effect of “anti-sj = anti-PoC” will achieve nothing.

yes, there are racist people and stupid people who identify as “anti-sj” and who are literally incapable of wrapping their heads around valid and important concepts simply because they “sound social-justicey” —but blindly discrediting and mislabeling people’s concerns against your “activism” because you’d rather accuse someone of racism than take the time to interrogate your methods & beliefs makes you seem like a self-important idiot with a ready-meal answer for everything instead of a functioning brain

this is where thin privilege intersects with male privilege. this is where fat girls are reminded that no place is safe: that nerd culture, which is supposed to stand for acceptance of people who are intellectual and non-athletic and different, still employs the same double standards that the rest of the world does. men are allowed to be fat. women are not.

my bazinga shirt was custom made, i shouldnt have to do that in a world like this :/ fat phobia is real

They are shirt sizes… it takes fabric.. you sorta pay for the fabric.. It is how business works…

If this were actually what’s going on, then you would also pay more for a medium than for a small. And the way clothes are made in mass production, the addition fabric needed for any single shirt is mere pennies, not $2-5.
So. You have no idea what you are talking about. 

Also, paying extra for extra fabric does not in any way explain men’s shirts being available in bigger sizes- especially considering the fact that “men’s” shirts are usually bigger in the first place

Well here’s one reason why male shirts come in an XXL


Because somehow the fact that there are large muscley dude means than large women — muscley or not — means that women shouldn’t get XXL shirts.
You are so full of shit and bigotry.

No.

My bazinga shirt

Walmart carries up to XXXXXL(5XL) on women’s shirts. That is a 58.5” bust, 50.5” waist, and 60.5” hip. There is no reason that a company should have to make anything larger than that for a very small minority of people that exceed that size. If you don’t want to lose the weight, then buy the larger men’s shirts (which are larger because men tend to be taller than women, so even if they have the same body fat percentage as their female counterparts they will still be bigger around).
