so my cousin made a fb status about having a horror movie marathon (he’s a dweeby little 14 year old just to put things into perspective) and he said friends are welcome to come over but not girls 

because

girls are afraid of seeing blood 

really son

really

think about that for a minute 

Boys think we’re so squeamish but they would faint if they ever had to change a tampon.

Today some bad squirrels tried to distract me from taking my math test by raiding the bird feeder right outside the window.

  • Me: can I have one dollar?
  • Zach: no, you can have one go to heck!

"weaponized femininity" more like "how to cater to the male gaze and Western beauty ideals while acting like it’s Totally Subversive"

And I, infinitesimal being,
drunk with the starry
void,
likeness, image of
mystery,
felt myself a pure part
of the abyss,
I wheeled with the stars,
my heart broke loose on the wind.

Pablo Neruda, from “Poetry,” Neruda: Selected Poems (Houghton Mifflin, 1990)

"I think the phrase “gender identity” is pretty suspect. In fact overuse of the term “identity” on its own is suspect. It implies that one doesn’t care about objective reality only about how people feel about themselves. In other words, it implies an idealist rather than a materialist approach to the word. People don’t just have identities, they have actual roles within actual oppressive systems (e.g. capitalist, worker, etc.) and these roles do not necessary reflect who they are and who they think they are. Real political radicals want to understand actual systems of oppression. They don’t just want to know how people feel about themselves. They do, on the other hand, want people to have an accurate understanding of oppressive systems and their place within it, but this is better captured through the use of the term “consciousness” rather than the term “identity”. In fact “consciousness” was the original term used by revolutionary leftists (e.g. “class consciousness”) and radical feminists (e.g. “consciousness-raising”) before the sex-crazed liberals came along and wrecked those movements with their notions of “class identity” and “gender identity”."
