yeah now that I’m watching it this daernys-liberates-them-all scene is actually even weirder than I imagined from the pictures

rando Lion King-esque music in the background here


saddest dick in a box……


always tempting to take a picture of my cat as she poops because she does this weird gymnastic pose but that would probably be pretty rude of me

outfit was perhaps on the clubby side for work, but I liked it

also, now that taxes are over and I know I’m not broke I’m not as worried about these decisions. Not that I WANT to lose like $200 one way or another but I know I can if it means the difference between not moving back in with my parents or whatever haha


landlord is texting me asking when we’re getting out, realize belatedly that steve did not talk to him as I thought after the last chat but I probably could have guessed that/it’s half my fault

sort of regret not just moving to a new apartment when the lease ended in march or w/e but, there was a lot going on then…. and it’s more or less the same problem now I guess

I will ideally move out somewhat before the leave date but if he wants us out by like, the end of June, might be dicey b/c I have no idea how long it will take to find a new job this time/what that search will entail. Oh well… if I have to move twice, I have to move twice

like are you aware that I’m probably the only feminist blogger who never talks about video games? That I’ve answered about 100 questions with “sorry, I don’t have any clue about video games, here’s some blogs that know stuff”?
You clearly have 0% idea what the criticisms are (hint: it’s a little more complex than ‘r there lady characterz’) if you don’t have even the slightest clue who is doing the criticizing

Q
I used the advanced Google search to look for this question on your blog before I decided to ask it. :) I saw this text post on cultural appropriation that received a lot of notes. It was a long quote from a Hindu girl who said that wearing a bindi isn't cultural appropriation because many Hindu women wear one as a fashion statement rather than for religious purposes, therefore, non-Hindu people can wear it for fashion purposes as well. What is your opinion on that argument?

I guess I’m not sure why you’re sending me a question… my answers haven’t changed? Since it does indeed come up in "Has this been asked before?

I’ve already said that in my opinion, based on what’s been pointed out, it’s cultural appropriation when white people do it in spite of numerous South Asian women protesting this. 

If it actually needs to be articulated, then yes, I do say this with the knowledge that the millions of Hindu women this might affect do not think with a hive mind and at least a few might not agree with that. 

I also think this question comes from a place where, to be honest, you really want a certain answer and aren’t fully looking at what’s presented to you. Especially when I know, since you’ve told me, that you’ve seen “Has this been asked before?” — this post comes up and it’s 100% relevant to this ask. The answer is already out there.

the voices of POC get pitted against each other all the time, and it’s usually done to 

  • affirm some kind of racist/ culturally appropriative act
  • affirm the idea that POC are a monolith

Like during The Great Bindi Debate on Tumblr, there were so many ppl going ‘but I talked to someone who lives in India and they said it was ok!’. There were even desis from the homeland chiming in to tell us diasporic desis that we’re making too much of it and that they don’t care if white people wear bindis and so neither should we.

Let me be clear: these are not conversations in which white people have any prerogative. The concerns of our activism and identity are ‘family’ conversations that POC have with each other, so stop appropriating the differences in our perspectives to further silence and disenfranchise us. (irresistible-revolution)

this is what you are sliding in by asking my opinion about their disagreement, as if the disagreement could change my already stated opinion, and knowing that I, probably the same as yourself, are white and not Hindu:

"Stop appropriating the differences in our perspectives to further silence and disenfranchise us."

Wait, so even though they’ve said it’s fine, you still claim it’s somehow damaging? How dehumanizing and insulting is that? They’ve claimed there is no issue, and you still need to step in and call it appropriation. They aren’t silencing your perspective. You’re silencing the PoC response, and in-so-doing, invalidating their replies. Who are you to so completely override their opinion due to your own holier-than-thou stance and effectively remove their own ability to speak for themselves?

you literally read no part of any of this, and are ignoring the many people who have an issue with it. One person says it’s not damaging and suddenly they speak for all PoC and you’re nobly defending them on your “anti-white racism is real” blog? I silenced the “PoC response” by republishing a PoC’s message word for word? Nice try but your wah-im-not-privileged-blog is never gonna be a polished work of art


i feel like high school was pretty idyllic most of the time

I think part of it was that North was literally a pretty great environment

and the other part is personality — there are a few personality types that fit well and mine is probably one of them. Even if I’m a part of drama, I’m still more intrigued than upset by it

I was trying to write characters for a story in my head today and remembered this one girl from my art class

she was a new girl, very goth — more goth than most of the goth kids at school, drawn on brows and all that 

she was sitting alone in the junior lunchroom so me and Maria invited her to our table 

and she did come over and sit with us for a few days, and she was nice, but what struck me was that it hadn’t been really that original of us to invite her to sit with us — we had been the third group of people to do so, apparently!

so, idk, there was meanness and pettiness like anywhere

but it was the sort of place where literally multiple people would ask a seemingly lonely stranger to sit with them and their friends during lunch
