Aphrodite Cabin headcanons!

Okay but think about this:

- as Aphrodite is the goddess of beauty, imagine nobody in the cabin actually uses makeup because they are all beautiful. They don’t wear makeup unless it’s a party or a special event.

- the Aphrodite cabin being the most diverse cabin in the matter of race. Filipino, Caucasian, Afican-american,… Also Aphrodite children who are albino or have vitiligo.

- campers of the Aphrodite cabin being in all sizes and height and weight ; skinny, tall, short, with a little more weight, chubby, with abs or with tummy rolls. But they are all beautiful!

- The Aphrodite cabin is the most LGBT+ supportive cabin, as they are also very diverse in the terms of sexuality: imagine a ton of pansexuals, demisexuals, bisexuals, flirty gays/lesbians, a few aro/ace chilling in the background — everyone is represented.

Just imagine.

Malcolm X

He is known for challenging the mainstream civil rights movement and Martin Luther King Jr.’s nonviolent way of protesting, encouraging his followers to defend themselves against white aggression “by any means necessary”. Malcolm has also been referred to as one of the most greatest and most influential Afican-Americans in history.

Usually thought of as: Straight

The truth:

  • Malcolm has had many relationships with both men and women. In Malcolm - The Life of a Man Who Changed Black America, a biography written by Bruce Perry, Malcolm’s previous same-sex relationships which he had when he was a sex worker were documented.
