I keep my chin up and head held high when I can.

Friends help, family helps, feline furrends help, and you too help.

Wishing you the best in life and love, dear anon. Your message helps me feel even better. Many thanks.

     “My mother is Japanese and my father is American. I only just recently reconciled these identities. In middle school, my Asian-ness was a quirky thing about me. I made Asian jokes about myself so my white peers would accept me, making a caricature of myself as the ‘Asian person’. At the time it was really important for me to connect with people who had the same cultural characteristics as myself, but I couldn’t find anybody. So, I tokenized my Asian identity.     “Later, I realized that making my Asian-ness a central part of my identity was harmful—there were so many other facets of myself that didn’t have to do with that. It affected how people interacted with me: when I earned a good grade, people would say, ‘Of course, you’re Asian.’     “I then decided to go to the opposite end and shun my Japanese heritage by pretending I was white. That was my strategy for a few years. Without even realizing it, I internalized certain racisms against Asian people. I saw them as inferior, which made me want to identify with my ‘white’ self even more.     “Finally, last semester I went to a giant cultural celebration for people of color. I saw a Japanese Taiko performance, which made me think of when I was a kid going to Japanese festivals—I would be so excited about everything Japanese. I almost cried and realized that I love a lot of Japanese culture, and that it was a part of who I am. I needed to revisit how I thought about my racial and cultural identity: what it was that I felt, why I felt it, and how I wanted to identify myself from that point on. I went back to Japan for a month and fell in love with the culture again. That was very important, because I shunned it for so long.     “So after a lot of processing this summer, I realize that I am in peculiar place between being a person of color and being white: I have too many privileges to identify as a person of color, yet I’m not white because of the way people label me as Asian and the shame I experienced as being Asian and Japanese. It’s a unique experience, being Japanese-American, and it’s important to know that this is who I am—no matter how people label me.”

queenoforder:

i think a big reason why everyone thinks radfems vilify them is because we see our movement and goal for liberation as collective and focus on class analysis, while queer and trans theory and mainstream/liberal feminism is so highly individualised that they feel we’re personally attacking them rather than their politics and theories/concepts

no one ever says that Rome needed help from aliens to build their empire

#l laughed for days when i found out that #ancient egyptians used water to reduce friction and move blocks for distances #and that this was literally DEPICTED ON THEIR HIEROGLYPHICS #but ~western archaeologists~ #thought that the pouring of water depicted ~superstitious rituals~ #jfc

davoncarey, if you care for your daughter so much, why is porn all over your blog? i don’t understand how you can truly, deeply care for your flawless young queen and continue to dehumanize women. porn is evil and destroys love. please join women in fighting for a world where women and girls are free from pornsickness.

I remember when I first found out the truth about “Somali pirates” I got chills because of how horrific the truth was and how insanely creepily well the media had twisted the situation. Every single fucking article making it seem like these “pirates” were just…

Porn Is Not Sex →

dragonsupremacy:

Every time I make an anti-porn post, I get accused of “shaming people’s sexuality” and/or “shaming sex.” As I have said numerous times, pornography is not sex. We all live in a patriarchy, and the porn industry at large is dominated by men and caters to men; this is true…

like this might come as a shock

but the minute your feminism refuses survivors the right to even name what has happened to them unless they fall under your ideological approval

your feminism has failed

The Ancient Art of Stone:Couple Creates Beautiful Rock Wall Art Installations

 Ancient Art of Stone | Facebook

Andreas Kunert and Naomi Zettl, a married artist duo based in Vancouver, create beautiful flowing wall installations out of rocks, pebbles, and other decorative elements.

I am passionate to give stone an articulated form. This involves finding the right stones – listening,” explains Kunert, who takes commissions through a website called Ancient Art Of Stone that he runs together with Zettl.

For those not planning major interior remodeling work any time soon, the couple also sells prints of smaller detailed and colorful work that they create specifically for this purpose. Due to their smaller size, these pieces can incorporate colorful stones and elements that just wouldn’t work in their larger installations. Take a look!
