Like a Tsurezuregusa for a philosophy grad student.

 

My face after coordinating recruitment and demonstrations for four dojos when all they want to do is shit on each other’s style to gain members.

I know I trained my students much better than that.

that tiny waist shit isn’t progressive

if your body positivity embraces curvy women but only hourglass curvy, then fuck you

bellies are curves too

I’m tired of us trying to convince folks black people are human beings. Your liberation will not be gifted in a eloquently written op-ed in the NY Times. It will not be the top headline in a press release. It will not be written in a beautiful packaged report. It will not come from a charming, articulate savior of a man. It will always be the people liberating themselves through mass movements, fighting for their liberation because it is not just peace we want, it is justice.

this morning, police raided Greater St. Mark school/church in Ferguson, MO (formerly called St. Sebastian’s Parish).

community members had been using it as a safe space and staging area. police claim that the church is violating housing codes by sheltering protesters, even though the pastor has said it isn’t true.

please please please boost this. help these organizers recover the supplies they lost, and share just how fucking far these cops will sink to make the people of Ferguson suffer.

I’d like to counter that diversity in children’s media—and in young adult fantasy—is important because it’s for kids. Children and teens know that books aren’t real, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t also internalizing the messages. When diverse peoples and cultures aren’t a part of these fantasy worlds, young readers are being repeatedly told that they can’t have adventures like the characters because they don’t look the part, that they are less important than imaginary creatures. They’re being repeatedly told that their exclusion is the norm.

You are personally responsible for becoming more ethical than the society you grew up in.

Being a “product of their times” is no excuse. Never let someone off the hook for bigotry.
