“Who is the most visible self-avowed feminist in the world right now? If your answer is anyone other than Beyoncé, you might be trying a little too hard to be contrarian. Did you see her at the V.M.A.’s, in her bejeweled leotard, with the word “feminist” in enormous illuminated capital letters looming on the stage behind her? A lot of things were going on there, but irony was not one of them. The word was meant, with a perfectly Beyoncé-esque mixture of poise and provocation, to encompass every other aspect of her complicated and protean identity. It explains who she is as a pop star, a sex symbol, the mother of a daughter and a partner in the most prominent African-American power couple not currently resident in the White House.”

Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive  because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics  to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.

“Now “tribal trends” are totally “in.” You can walk into any store in the mall and see “Native” imagery everywhere. As a Native person, when I look at them, I can’t help but remember the not-so-distant past when my people weren’t allowed, by law, to wear these things. It’s such a constant reminder of the colonial power structures still in place. Back in the day, white people had the power to take away our culture, and now they have the power to wear it however they see fit. These are our images, our cultural symbols, yet we are completely powerless to have control over them.”

we were put here just to make more dirt
and that’s okay.

why do professors insist on giving us the most boring readings and then go on to complain that we don’t show enough interest in class??

isn’t it funny how widely appropriated chinese (and other east asian) aesthetics and culture are yet hardly anyone wants to recognise us like they just continue to take and take yet point at and laugh about us because we’re literally nothing but jokes in the west, but people still want what is…


When I see someone trying to hang on to the little bit of Islam they have left in them, they deserve all the encouragement and respect to help them get back into the game.
