Don't Mind Me

I'm just looking around at the interesting things... queer theory, identity politics, of course--but also pop culture, relationship diversity, documentary, faith, humor, cartoons, other kinds of art, and the rest of it

People who think there are only two sexes aren’t worth your time tbh. No argument you have will mean anything to someone with a 9th grade understanding of biology.

1,500 join Minnesota march in solidarity with Gaza

Columbia Heights, MN – More than 1500 people joined a massive rally and march here, July 18, to stand in solidarity with Gaza and to demand an end to Israel’s attacks.

Crowds lined the sidewalks for blocks and then took the street, marching down Central Avenue, one of the busiest thoroughfares in the Twin Cities.

According to a statement from protest leaders, the demonstration was held “to give voice to growing opposition to Israel’s inhumane attacks, and to build pressure on the Minnesota’s congressional delegation to end U.S. military aid to Israel.”

"don’t infringe on anyone’s autonomy" does NOT mean that you get to do/say whatever the fuck you want without any type of criticism or without deserving lashback from it

because the things you do/say can uphold oppressive beliefs that do, in fact, infringe on people’s autonomy and right to live

your belief system is not without consequence when you have privilege, and believing elsewise is a pathetic excuse to perpetuate both your own privilege and the oppression it causes for others without ever actually having to say “I do see what you’re saying, I just don’t want things to change because they’re good for me and I don’t give a fuck about you” in as many words

One thing that I always want out of a church or church camp is the ability to ask questions, but also be able to answer them on my own. When people don’t ask questions you never grow in your faith. Letting one person stand up on a podium and tell me what I should believe is not the way i see church and camp. They should both be environments where we ask questions, develop in our faith, share our thoughts and beliefs, and accept each other even when we don’t believe the same thing. Luckily I am part of a church and a camp that does it already and I am grateful for that.

'No one ever said that the goal was full integration of these populations,' David Von Spreckelsen, senior vice president at Toll Brothers, another developer specializing in luxury residencies, told The Real Deal in 2013. ‘So now you have politicians talking about that, saying how horrible those back doors are. I think it’s unfair to expect very high-income homeowners who paid a fortune to live in their building to have to be in the same boat as low-income renters, who are very fortunate to live in a new building in a great neighborhood.’

^ Are you fucking kidding me?!

wow really? what the fuck do y’all think is gonna happen if you use the same door as my poor Black ass? you think you might be forced to pay a living wage?

This sounds like a sneaky segregation/ Jim Crow reboot. How many Black & Brown folk y’all think are gonna be using that rich door instead of the “poor” one. Fuck these crackers, man.

^^^This exactly what is is. Except it’s not even “sneaky” this shit is blatant.
