I had a thought
Nonbinaries’ gender is like the position of an electron’s orbit around the nucleus of an atom
It’s in all places at once until someone looks at it
Then the wave function collapses and it chooses just one
When someone looks away it can change again but it’s static while it’s being observed
Like — like Weeping Angels?
I want to follow all of you.
I LOVE THIS WOMAN. She is my favourite singer/songwriter in the universe.
Sooj is bright, shiny, musical love.
Her Music and Magic workshop at FoS this year was an experience I’ll never forget. Her entire discography is so perfect, and has had such a beautiful impact on me. I’m counting down the days ‘til next October when I can see her lovely face again.
I just love her. <3
Love her and her every growly look.
Just, y’know. Don’t lick her toes.
Hermain Cain, after hearing that his former surgeon’s name was Dr. Abdallah.
Looks like Cain is still raking in those gratuitous GOP xenophobia points.
non-christians can’t be doctors. because they want to kill you. duh.
AUGH TWITCH AUGH.
What I hate is how many Christians-from-Lebanon would actually be pleased by this kind of pronouncement, this pat on the head for being a model minority that has put so much effort into assimilation. How many family members of the older generation would breathe a sigh of relief to not have been lumped in with the Muslims or Druze. Hate. Hatehatehate.
-Peter Gelderloos, Why Nonviolence Protects the State- Nonviolence is Racist (via rosadefuego)
I think about this in the context of Palestine a lot; how Palestinians who died while staging peaceful protests are virtuous, worthy, deserving of Western tears, and isn’t it all such a goshdarned fucking shame but oh well what can you do. How dying on camera is important, to add some sliver of a chance to the likelihood that someone in the US will be moved enough to sign a petition or re-think their stance on BDS. How nonviolent protests are hardly ever covered anyway, and how nonviolent measures like BDS taken by people outside of Palestine are labelled anti-semitic.
Client: “I don’t mean to sound racist, but…”
Me: “But what?”
Client: “But the site is too black.”
Me: “Like, literally too black?”
Client: “Yes. The background is too black.”
Me: “That’s not racist. That has nothing to do with race.”
Client: “Phew. I can never tell with you black people, what’s offensive and what’s not.”
Me: “I’m actually Lebanese. And, yeah, that one might be a bit racist.”
This happens often, I see.
