    nightswimming // r.e.m. // automatic for the people

    september’s coming soon, i’m pining for the moon
    and what if there were two, side by side in orbit
    around the fairest sun? the bright, tight, forever drum
    could not describe nightswimming.

    lisa: hey they do look alike!
    bart: how did ritchie die?
    lisa: perhaps his materialism led him to take his life.
    marge: kids, could you lighten up?]

  3. Because we don’t speak about sex, there is no socially acceptable language surrounding it. So the language of porn has jumped in to fill that space, and that’s an issue, because in a male-dominated industry the language of porn is all too often male-generated. The person who coined the term “finger blasting” didn’t have a vagina. The person who coined the term, “getting your ass railed” never got their ass railed. Pounding, hammering, banging… And language matters, because when the only language you have available is abusive and one-directional, in terms of having things done to you, it creates a very weird view of how sex works.

Gonna keep a tally of messages I get from a) white feminists completely proving my point and b) people who think this comic proves feminism is worthless because I criticized one part of it. (Even despite me writing these words underneath the comic.) Then I’ll add them all up, see which column has more, and then drink myself to sleep either way.
Haha… this is why we can’t have nice things.

    guys gUYs

    so you know Michal, right?

    Biblical character, daughter of King Saul and first wife of King David?

    The Rabbis further relate of this righteous woman that Michal would put on tefillin every day, and the sages of the time did not protest, even though there is no halakhic requirement for a woman to do so (JT Eruvin 10:1, 26a).  (x)

    HERE’S THE ARAMAIC PROOF TEXT (bless you Mechon Mamre)

    הרי מיכל בת שאול היתה לובשת תפילין … ולא מיחו בידם חכמים (x)

    (This statement is straight up not in the Babylonian Talmud, the more widely accepted/studied version, which is why so few people probably know it.)

    Thus the acknowledgement of women laying tefillin goes back much further than Rashi’s daughters.  Rashi lived in the 11th century.   The Jerusalem Talmud was compiled in the 4th-5th centuries.

    Nearly two thousand years ago, there were rabbis who said “Yes, these rituals do not belong to men alone.  Indeed there are righteous women who participate in them.”

    its the notion of boycotts

    you wanna know why the bus boycotts of the civil rights movement were so successful?

    because an alternative black run transportation system was created for those who couldn’t walk to work or whatever they had to go

    they didn’t just tell people “oh the bus enforces racist policies so don’t take it and FUCK if you can’t get to work on time or where you need to be!” 

    they said “hey you’re paying to get on the bus and not even being given a seat let alone being ejected if a white passenger needs your seat. here’s a potentially better alternative where you pay to sit down and get to where you need to go” 

    all this “boycott Target, Walmart, Monsanto owned companies” comes from a notion of boycott located in the politic of privileged white people

    and that’s why they are largely unsuccessful

    its why Obama just gave Monsanto the green light to commit even more fuckery to your food

    its the reason why cooperation are considered people

    its the reason why Walmart is allowed to usurp safety and labor regulations in their factories, and underpay their American workers

    because you say “don’t spend your money there” and that’s the end of the story 

    you expect people to locate their survival in a politic of “abstaining from unethical choices”

    and then from there those unethical choices are somehow supposed to magically disappear. when really only a small percentage of people are able to boycott so many things

    there wouldn’t be a movement located around the “99%” if 99% of people could really afford to stop shopping at the unethical places and stop buying the unethical brands

    good luck with your hocus pocus activist logic 

    AND that the boycotts were organized with enough concentrated numbers relative to the area being pressured to affect the economy.

    AND that boycotts also came with specific demands for legal policy change upon specific authorities.   Lawyers were helping draft best plans of action based on establishing precedent.

    Unified messages were created and plans were made for publicizing those messages so that when the white general populace started to see the difference and inconvenience when those boycotts kicked in, they’d know EXACTLY what was being asked of them.

    Plans were laid for boycotts months ahead - not only were alternative means set up, plans were laid out for what it would look like in the long haul for a lot of people.  Plans were made for what they’d have to do in the face of backlash - beatings, arrests, white mob violence, lynchings, police abuse, etc.

    The difference, of course, is that all of this is about organizing and acting as a movement, instead of just shilling consumer activism…

    Of course, the other half of this kind of ignorance is because of raw anti-blackness.   These folks just imagine “Well, the Black people did it, so it can’t be that hard…” and come so unprepared and shoddy with it. 

    sobbing because this is everything yes

    If you are in Tucson, Phoenix or wider Arizona and would like to donate money, supplies, your time or skills to families and children in detention, the Florence Immigrant Project needs your help. 

    The page has links to steps you can take to support immigrant children in detention. This is important as ICE begins to move kids from warehouses and bases in Texas all throughout the Southwest.

    I worked with the Florence Project for many years. This group is severely underfunded and has been a leader in immigrant advocacy for decades. Please consider sending them a donation. Many of their staff members work tirelessly without pay or benefits. I can only imagine how overwhelmed they must be at this time of crisis. Please signal boost the hell out of this post.

  15. Someone on Twitter asked me at the Ask Orange event last week what my favorite thing is about Poussey, and I said “her smile.” Because, although a lot of people talk about how the show is a mix between comedy and drama, being in prison is not necessarily funny. It’s not a funny situation. But there can be people in prison who are naturally funny people, and people that you would enjoy spending time with, enjoy sharing a meal with. Although throughout the season you see that Poussey is frustrated by her incarceration, she has four more years to do there, so it’s not like she can so much see her end date. So I think, in contrast to some of the other characters, she really has to make prison her home, and has to make it livable there. I really enjoyed finding the joy within the fucked up-ness of it. —Samira Wiley
