silence the violence

This is what fascism looks like

These are pictures of recent riot at UC Berkleley, in which the left was “protesting” Milo Yiannopoulos’ speech. Leftists/sjws/democrats whatever you want to call them fear free speech so badly that they’d rather set fires, damage property, and even beat Trump/Milo supporters unconscious than allow Mr. Yiannopoulos to share his views with others. Silencing political dissidents using violence is actual fascism (and terrorism). This is disgusting.

Everyone
Every hope
The silver lining that you’ve ignored

It won’t be the same anymore
Anyway
Anyhow
Bring me back to life
Everything I’ve done before
Comes crashing down, I’m feeling low
But is this the reality or just another dream
Maybe I’m falling
Believing
And dreaming
Or am I dead?
Ahh
Everything is gone now
I’m six feet under
Regrets and memories, for me to wonder
Rest in peace
They say to me
But I just wanted to be free
Free
Maybe falling
Believing
I’m Dreaming
Or am I dead?
Ahh
And this silence
Bred into my selfless violence
What have I done to myself?
Just to kill my pride
And now I am dead
Why cant you hear me right now

GIF GIF GIF GIF…. this shouldn´t become one at the beginning… and then… it got out of control @_@ And I made 10 or 15 versions of that piece, because I am NOT HAPPY, how Jian Yi came out T___T I am so sorry for the fans, I will try to make something better the next days!! And I know now, that I can´t draw anything that I want… that head + face was the hell for me :( I have so much to practice, and on the other side sooo many ideas, that I wanna bring on my screen!! But I don´t like the last things I draw, especially THIS!! I wanna cry…. I am not good at all now, and one week ago I was so happy to get so many, wonderful new followers, but now I am like “why do they like that pieces of sh**??” I can´t make ME pleased, so how is it, that I make other people happy with it? ARRR my head hurts and my mood is not good, so I will go shopping now with my mom and hope that it become better ;)~

You love him, but he isn’t worth the trouble.
You love him, but he’ll never care.
You love him, but it doesn’t matter because in the end, you’re the one getting hurt.

The spark he started in you is still burning, but you have to let him go.

I always read twin peaks is a critique of the culture of silence around domestic violence, and therefore as a feminist text, but lafky makes the really good point in that article that you have to consider the way lynch & frost discuss the show in interviews and the way it was promoted by ABC if you want to understand their intentions and how critically they were thinking about that stuff. the image of laura’s dead body was used in a lot of promotional stuff for the show in a way that was sexualized or at least romanticized. lynch and frost talk a lot about “evil” in an abstract sense but they never talk about specifically abuse or address the question of whether we’re supposed to place the responsibility for bob’s actions on leeland. she also points out that the creators never used the word “incest” in any of their discussions of the show, which is itself a kind of silencing. finally, with maybe the exception of audrey, none of the women in the show are able to effectively escape or expose their abusers on their own. it’s really framed as being a story about cooper and harry saving female victims from an abstracted satanic violence which they are in no way complicit in. so when you look at it more closely the elements of social critique do kind of start to fall apart I think.

I’m not interested in anybody’s guilt. Guilt is a luxury that we can no longer afford. I know you didn’t do it, and I didn’t do it either, but I am responsible for it because I am a man and a citizen of this country and you are responsible for it, too, for the very same reason… Anyone who is trying to be conscious must begin to dismiss the vocabulary which we’ve used so long to cover it up, to lie about the way things are.

Halsey lyrics // aesthetic things

you know the thing i hate most about the dismissing of ableist slurs being slurs… is how like… these words have actual trauma attached to them for me…? and it’s like, you all act like we’re just looking for causing trouble/drama and are just being sensitive but like…

idk, for example i’ve been beaten while being called the r word, i’ve been put in chokehold while being called psycho, i’ve been verbally assaulted by people in family and by other students while being called a lot of things… and often bullies would resort to calling me stupid, dumb, depressive, mentally challenged, or autie..

and like, i have so much trauma attached to the idea of being called incompetent, stupid, ugly, crazy, and related concepts… and then i go to tumblr and get called these things. and i see people call it out… and what happens? they get ridiculed. and dismissed.. by not just the usual shitty bunch of people online… but like, i see this among lgbt+ circles…

and honestly, that’s what has shocked me the most. a community that has so much trauma and violence, a community that has so many slurs… and then when they see someone talk about oppression and being degraded…. this same group default by treating them the same way they have been treated? i don’t get how this adds up.

it’s disappointing. i’m disappointed by how the lgbt+ community has failed the nd and disabled part of the community. and i’m disappointed by how any talk about ableism gets met with aggression and silencing and dismissiveness.
