This will probably be uncomfortable for all of us.

I'd like to offer moral support, but I have questionable morals.

    A fun thing to do when people accuse you of “thinking people should just have stuff HANDED TO THEM! ! !” Is to just cold be like yes. I absolutely do believe that. I think every single person should have their needs met unconditionally without ever having to prove that they “deserve” it based on arbitrary criteria of usefulness. You got me. Busted.

  4. this week in masters theses I’ll never write

    salman rushdie’s shame as a failed feminist adaptation of vladimir nabokov’s lolita: he’s successful at reappropriating the political subtext to his own context and also making it text, but dude this does not feel like a woman’s story, there should be less dead/inhuman/mindless/powerless women in a woman’s story

  5. septembriseur:

    I’ve been trying to think how to organize all of my many, many thoughts on Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and I feel like I should consider this as one in a series of essays on, basically, CA: TWS and trauma/anxiety. At some point I want to look at the tropes of woundedness, generic trauma, and healing love that come up a lot in responses (fanwork or otherwise) to the movie, but first I have some stuff to say about, well, what the title of this points to: the way we see biopolitical anxiety bubbling up all through this story.

    When I say “biopolitical anxiety,” what I mean is: anxiety that has to do with the way that bodies are subject to power. Without getting too much into the history of the term “biopolitics” and its use in this (vaguely Agambenian) sense, I’ll say that I think its increasing prominence in the late 20th century and onwards has to do with a growing acceptance of the embodied-ness of the self. What I mean is: the less you think of the “self” or “soul” as some kind of object that happens to be inside your body, and the more you think of it as something that is your body, or as something that is produced by and/or projected onto your body, the more important it becomes to consider how bodies are created or controlled by power.

    The relevance of this for the CA: TWS story is pretty obvious: both title characters in this film are bodies that have literally been created by power, and selves that have been significantly reduced to their bodily existence.

  6. autoluminescence asked: i'm so sorry that u had a bad day, bb, but: brooklyn 99 gang host a seder DON'T ASK WHY JUST GO FOR IT

    swanjolras:

    OHHHHHHHHHHH MY GOD i can’t even make this fic i’m just

    so headcanon: jake’s, like, a REALLY lapsed jew (i mean he’s had a bar mitzvah, he knows like half the v’ahavta, he makes latkes on hanukkah, but ever since his nana died there’s been no one yelling at him to do shabbat and he’s forgotten literally everything)

    but he and gina are talking one day about how jake’s nana used to host the most hardcore seders— like, 3 hours long, matzo balls that were exactly the right amount of fluffy, horseradish that would make your brain steam out your ears, the afikomen would not be found for y e a r s

    and holt hears them and happens to mention that oh, he and kevin have been looking for a seder to attend this weekend, they usually have a seder with kevin’s family but unfortunately kevin’s mother’s cousin’s older daughter (who usually hosts them) has recently had a baby and can’t do it, and everyone else in kevin’s family is too far away, what on earth will they do

    and amy overhears this and HELPFULLY INFORMS HOLT!! THAT JAKE IS HOSTING A SEDER!! THE BEST SEDER EVER!! HIS FAMOUS SEDER! THAT HE DOES EVERY YEAR! AND YOU ARE TOTALLY WELCOME TO ATTEND SIR!!

    captain holt is like, that sounds lovely, santiago

    I’m always reluctant to bring up Mixtape in discourse about actual spree killings, but I think it’s relevant to point out that literally the first pages of the book are about how to accuse someone of racism is seen by many as tarnishing them with a more terrible brush than, say, being a fucking spree killer.

    The whole world has become so shy of calling people out on being racist that an awful, shitty journalist in Australia has had eighteen-page apologies written to him by indigenous people who called him racist because it was just so mean and awful and he’s so offended that he’s gonna sit at home and cry. Or, you know, post pictures of indigenous people on his blog with the caption ‘no comment’, because the courts ordered him to not comment on things like that when he lost his I Am A Giant Fucking Racist case and now he gets to have his cake and eat it. Oh, and the Prime Minister wants to chuck out the racial hate laws completely now, because DON’T YOU UNDERSTAND, SOMEONE CALLED THIS GUY A RACIST JUST BECAUSE HE WAS LIKE, YOU KNOW, DOING A REALLY FUCKING RACIST THING. DON’T PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT BEING CALLED A RACIST IS THE WORST SLUR EVER. 

    Even the fucking KKK put out literature saying that they aren’t racist. The absolute worst scum of the earth, the most hateful disgusting people, don’t want to be called racist.

    So that’s how you wind up with situations like what we have now, where the media is taking a blatantly racially motivated attack and talking about everything but that fact, creating this yawning void in the middle of the coverage.

    Him being a vicious and appalling spree murderer is one thing, but calling him racist, well that would just be mean.

  10. Yours to cut out and keep

    Dr Prakash sees the Foldscope’s main use as a diagnostic tool for tropical diseases. Malaria, for example, can be caused by several species of parasite. Knowing which is responsible in a particular case can affect the treatment chosen. Foldscopes should also help diagnose other widespread diseases, such as schistosomiasis, loiasis and sleeping sickness.

    He hopes, too, that they will help enthuse the next generation of doctors and scientists. To this end he and his team have drummed up more than 10,000 people from 130 countries to devise simple, relevant microscopy-based experiments. A Mongolian farmer, for instance, wants to show his fellows why they should boil milk to make it safer. An American beekeeper proposes to use Foldscopes to show his fellow apiculturalists how to identify bee-killing mites and fungi. And a 12-year-old Qatari would like to study the Namib desert beetle, which scavenges drinking water from morning fogs. The results, when published on the web, will become part of a manual of microscopy for everyman (and woman) that Dr Prakash hopes will encourage yet more experimentation.

    Queer subtext in media is nice and all, but have you considered:

    • Including actual queer characters instead of vague metaphors for queer characters.
