Queerness is dystopia.

I have been thinking about how hard it is to have relationships– any relationship– without hurting eachother. Even amongst/within/between queers and queer spaces. I have been thinking a lot about how queerness is presented as this radical and subversive identity outside of and resisting these dominant systems we are all affected by– colonialism, white supremacy, anti-Blackness, patriarchy, transmisogyny, heterosexism, misogyny, ableism, sizeism, etc etc etc. We brand ourselves with this label as an identifier for what we’re working toward, with no or little acknowledgment for how we’re kind of really fucking bad at it, and how often we replicate these same systems in our communities, in these new worlds we are building in micro and macro levels.

When does queer become a flattening of our other identities, of the other ways we can and do and will hurt eachother? When does claiming queer become a free pass to replicate and enact colonialist capitalist white supremacist cisheteropatriarchy, only to then invisiblize it behind what we are working toward in a way that erases what we are.

My last semester of undergrad we read this history of 1990s NYC ACT UP! So many of the authors interlocutors spoke of the community as this liberatory space full of hope and joy and sexual energy. And I could only think– sexual energy for whom? Who is that energy being directed toward, and what power do those people hold? Questions my own experiences in queer communities 30 years later have led me to again and again. Later in the chapter came the testimony of a poz man with a much different experience of the space. He didn’t seem to find the community hopeful or joyful, and definitely not sexual. That energy wasn’t being toward him. And it felt so explicit, and ironic, how this space that was purportedly for him was also exclusionary for him, presumably (at least in part) for the same things they were supposed to be supporting him for. And I bring this anecdote not to generalize this experience as everyones, or speak for him, or deny or diminish or erase any hope or joy or sex him or other poz people might have found there, but as a question of the ways in which we replicate these systems despite and with and through our queer identities. And it is easy to reject these spaces as not “actually” queer when they do not live up to our ideas or expectations, but I am not willing to do that. Because they are queer. Because this is what queerness is.

We are still hurting eachother. Actively and passively, intentionally and not, and I am guilty of this too.

Queerness becomes dystopic when it becomes complacency, when it becomes a way to shield the ways we are harming eachother, distancing ourselves from them, using them only when we are on the receiving end of oppression and not the ways in which we perpetuate it. Identity politics are useful and necessary at times, but when will we stop hiding behind them? When will non-Black people of color stop dismissing white people as exclusively racist and acknowledge our own anti-Blackness? When will non-binary and gender non-conforming people stop blaming cis people and ignore the ways in which we are also perpetuating and benefitting from transmisogyny? When will smaller fat people acknowledge how different their experiences are from bigger fat people? When will I be in a queer space that calls eachother family and not feel family but rather the the ways in which fat hatred and white supremacy alienate me, and the ways in which many other systems I benefit from are alienating others more vulnerable? When does queerness become yet another State to which we claim citizenship to– when we have seen how allegiance to citizenship merely dilutes our own humanity and our ability to connect to others’– and when will we realize the necessity to abolish this one too?

In the end, Crona is a part of Asura

I finally got around to reading the official translation of volume 25 today, and I noticed something that has completely blown away what I had thought of Crona’s fate.

Allow me to share.

To make my point, I need to foreground it with Crona’s inner dialogue while inside the Kishin:

In this first panel, Crona is thinking to themselves about how the others absorbed by Asura have lost their bodies and identities to become a part of the whole, a “shapeless mass”–but Crona continues to hold on to their body and individuality.

Then, in the second panel, Crona thinks about giving up their body to “bring an end to [their] pathetic existence.”  They won’t, because they “cling to life,” but if they did give up their body, they would become a part of Asura in total and die.

Now here’s where it gets interesting.  As Crona is enacting their sacrifice, using brew and the blood to trap Asura, Asura himself describes what is occurring.  

Asura says, bluntly, that Crona has “cast off [their] flesh” to overcome terror.  In effect, they have given up their mortal body as a part of the process of becoming a prison for Asura. They no longer have a body, and their only existence is as that prison.  They have, in essence, become to Asura what Ragnarok had been to Crona–his blood, that like his skin before it, acts as his prison.

We already know, from the earlier panel, that for Crona to give up their body is to die.  Crona has not just sacrificed their freedom but their life to imprison Asura, and only exists as a part of him.  At best, they are as inextricable as Ragnarok had been before them.  

The bottom line?  Crona cannot be saved. 

I had always suspected this to be the case, but this is clear confirmation of it–and that confirmation makes this panel even more poignant:  

When Crona says they believe Maka when she says she’ll come back for them, it’s a half truth at best–Crona must know Maka will try, but that there will be nothing to come back for.  Yet, they must lie if they are to achieve their goal of saving Maka; they know Maka well enough to know she would never leave if she knew all of what Crona planned, that they would actually be killing their mortal body to enact that plan.  So they lie because saving Maka is far more important to them than telling her the whole truth in that moment.

It’s just that bit more painful when you realize that Maka, at least initially, clings to hope that Crona knows all along doesn’t exist, nor do they seem sorry for that.  Saving Maka is the only thing that matters.

There was a time in Zimbabwe when whites made up 20% of the population, but owned 80% of the land. Some of their farms were as large as ONE THOUSAND football fields. This act of greed forced most of the native Zimbabweans to live in cramped tenements in Harare and other cities in Zimbabwe. That is until President Robert Mugabe enacted his land reform policy. Many of these farms have been confiscated and redistributed to the native Zimbabweans for settlement. This is one of the main reasons why the Western governments call him the Black Hitler.
I see him as a man that loves his people


Even if you want to argue that a religion doesnt inherently create misogyny, it still often empowers men and puts them in a place where they can more easily enact oppression. Religion has been used to justify violence on micro and macro levels for centuries. Please don’t act like all modern faiths are somehow “reformed” and incapable of doing the same.

Yeah. I'm pretty sure I said he made mistakes. He has enacted better policies and relations than Obama has so far. Not to mention his marine life preservation You call yourself a writer but can't even offer a simple rebuttle. Lol. Stop smoking weed

Your coming into my ask box to fight with me about something we obviously don’t agree upon.
Obama has spent 8 years cleaning up the mess Bush left behind.
You’re not going to change my mind.

Idk if I should be sharing this, LOL, but anyway…

My younger siblings (16yo sis and 12yo bro) decided to re-enact out B&B’s wedding with stuffed toys…but with the added twist of Pelant (back from the dead apparently) interrupting and declaring his love for Brennan…


It was terrible but also fucking hilarious, my siblings can be so weird sometimes, idk why they’re like that when I’m so obviously normal :P

But then they teased me with their favourite BOUND TO ANNOY ME comment: “what are you going to do when Bones ends??” At which point all the humour drained out of me and I was like STFU!!!

But hey, at least they watch Bones with me, so they’re good for something at least, lol.

His way had taken him somewhat of road… or rather into an area quite unusual to his taste. He was used to large cities and the turbulence in the center. Turbulence well enacted for his needs. A crowd of people was so easy to vanish in… this would be a real challenge.

He had the general information about his target. Age, name, a photograph… a few other miniscule bits of knowledge, which were helpful, but in no way or shape providing him with enough to ensure a smooth go of the action.

Also, even though the one who had given him this quite unique contract… was a person he knew for some while. Personally. The other would refrain from furthering false information to lure him into a false sense of security… and yet…
He had been warned that there may be something fishy. Something concerning the other. He would have no choice but to search for more information himself.
All these thoughts and more ran through his head, while his train approached the small town he had been sent to search out his target at…

anonymous asked:

But... But... Can you imagine Grim doing the hip hop nip nop in scantily clad clothes while attempting to enact a scene from Romeo and Juliet?

….How the hell do you simultaneously hip hop while enacting Shakespeare? 

Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus don’t have beef.

Nicki Minaj and Miley Cyrus aren’t in a cat fight.

Nicki Minaj thoughtfully called out MTV’s decades - DECADES - of simultaneous ignoring and exploiting of Black artists as exemplified by the ongoing paucity of Black artists nominated for VMAs (outside of the hip-hop category).

Miley – like Taylor Swift before her – acted like an ignorant little shit stirring clown, slinging insults without any understanding of what Nicki was even talking about, and when Nicki had the mic she let Miley know that her words had been heard and not appreciated.

This is not some picayune squabble.

This is what it looks like when a Black woman is holding white people accountable for enacting and upholding white supremacy.

Okay but what about

NaruHina middle school teacher AU where Naruto is the fun history teacher organizing a war re-enactment for his classes and tries to build up the courage to ask the cute new art teacher ‘Ms. Hyuga’ down the hall for help making costumes/etc.

Ofc Hinata is more than willing to help her gorgeous co-worker, especially if it means spending long hours alone with him after school. But Naruto really doesn’t need her help, he just wanted an excuse to talk to her after spending the past few months sneaking glances at her every five minutes from across the teacher’s lounge.

*Bonus: 12 year old Konohamaru is in Hinata’s art class and is constantly telling her how much of a crush ‘Mr. Uzumaki’ has on her.

thank u swaggisbroatheons for helping me re-find this video that me and my gf still re-enact at each other

I don’t think people understand that Israel is essentially enacting a government sanctioned ethnic cleansing against Palestinians. The protest this young boy was involved in was against Israeli settlements in Palestinian territory that have been declared illegal by the U.N. The Israeli government has been paying people to populate Palestinian territory in order to diminish the Palestinian majority in the Palestinian nation, and thereby unofficially expand Israel’s borders. The U.N. and President Obama has called for an end to this practice, but he has, unfortunately, done little more as the U.S. continues to send billions of dollars in ‘aid’ annually to Israel.

VIXX LR Leo, transformation into L from 'Death Note'...from his clothes to his pose, 'perfect'

[Tenasia = Reporter Kim Ha-Jin] Leo of VIXX LR, a unit from the male idol group VIXX, has transformed into the character L from ‘Death Note.’

In a recent post on an online community’s board, two photos were posted under the title “Leo of VIXX LR and L of Death Note’s synchronization.”

In this photo of Leo that was taken at a broadcast program, from his hairstyle to his pale complexion and crouching pose, Leo is like L, one of the main characters in 'Death Note.’

In particular, Leo’s strong yet deep gaze and his expression that is filled with tension which re-enact the mood that is unique to the distinctive character L are attracting the public’s gaze even more.

Meanwhile, LR are doing activities at various music broadcasts etc. through their first mini album’s title song 'Beautiful Liar,’ which they released on the 17th.

Current gun control laws are frequently aimed at inner city, poor, black communities who are perceived as more dangerous than white gun owners.

Charles Gallagher, MA, PhD, the Chair of Sociology at LaSalle University, stated that some gun control laws are still founded on racial fears: “Whites walking down Main Street with an AK-47 are defenders of American values; a black man doing the same thing is Public Enemy No. 1." 

In the late 1960s, gun control laws were enacted in reaction to the militant, gun-carrying Black Panthers. 

 Adam Winkler, MA, JD, UCLA Constitutional Law Professor, stated "The KKK began as a gun-control organization. Before the Civil War, blacks were never allowed to own guns” so, after the Civil War, there was “constant pressure among white racists to keep guns out of the hands of African Americans because they would rise up and revolt.” 

In Virginia, in response to Nat Turner’s Rebellion (also called the Southampton Rebellion, in which slaves killed 55 to 65 people in the most fatal slave uprising in the United States) in 1831, a law was passed that prohibited free black people "to keep or carry any firelock of any kind, any military weapon, or any powder or lead and all laws allowing free black people to possess firearms were repealed.

my english professor was talking about Hamlet today and how one of the themes is Hamlet being told to enact revenge but continually procrastinating so i asked “he was a university student, wasn’t he?” and my professor said yeah so i just said “well that explains it”
