I go by Ghost on the internet (and certain parts of western canada). Into monsters (especially werewolves) mythical creatures (especially mermaids) and poems about the sea. Will post feminist, intersectional, political things. This blog will also be engulfed in tv and movie obsessions. I don't even know if you're properly warned yet. Put your lifejacket on the captain has lost control of the ship.
A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.

I guess that meme of DaQuan—the one y’all thought was funny—came true mhmmm 😒
- kicked their daughter out (left her at a homeless shelter)
- found out she had left the shelter to live with a guy
- tracked them down at 9 at night to yell at her
- shot her unarmed boyfriend (killing him)
- shot at her after she ran to hide in the bushes
- shot at the bf’s 13 yr old brother (hitting him in the arm)
- fled the scene
- were allowed to turn themselves in
- were put on PAID suspension
…think about a term like “welfare queen” or “food stamp president.” On one level, like a dog whistle, it’s silent. Silent about race. It seems race-neutral. But on another, it also has a shrill blast, like a dog whistle, that can be heard by certain folks. And what the blast is is a warning about race and a warning, in particular about threatening minorities. And the idea that I’m trying to get across here is, racism has evolved. Or, in particular, public racism has evolved. The way in which racism, the way in which racial divisions are stoked in public discourse has changed. And now it operates on two levels. On one level, it allows plausible deniability. This isn’t really about race, it’s just about welfare. Just about food stamps. And on another, there’s a subtext, an underground message which can be piercingly loud, and that is: minorities are threatening us. And so when people dog whistle about criminals, welfare cheats, terrorists, Islam, Sharia law, ostensibly they’re talking about culture, behavior, religion, but underneath are these old stereotypes of degraded minorities, but also, and this is important, implicitly of whites who are trustworthy, hard-working, decent.
Emma Sulkowicz is on the cover of this month’s New York Magazine and that is the coolest thing wow
DUUUUDE this is a huge fucking deal honestly
kind of irritated that they are using “sexual revolution” to describe what is happening though? the “brilliantly plotted movement against assault” is what’s actually important?why put the words “sexual” literally over her body? it isn’t a sexual revolution? Idk it just feels gross…
but yes yes to her being on the cover and raising awareness v good
^^^ i didnt even think of that, thats such a good point. Like, rape is not sex. This is not a sexual revolution its about women having rights to our bodies & redefining a system that does next to nothing to protect those rights or persecute those who cross them.
ooohhh truth. it sat a little weird with me at first glance because i felt like it was trying to harken back to some kind of archaic “women’s lib” kind of terminology, but i was so stoked this was getting press i didn’t give it more thought.
rape needs to be extricated from the concept of sex on every level.
