@DothTheDoth My sexual orientation is emerging from fog-covered woods to vote & then exploding in thousands of crows. ~ “I’m not going to lie, but some people are like don’t ask about genitals, but its like thats important to some people” ~ @chenchenwrites Everyone quotes this, but it really is so good “If I read a book and it makes my whole body so cold no fire can warm me, I know that is poetry. If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry. These are the only ways I know it.” Emily Dickinson ~ I think we know each other well enough that I can put the question this way without fear of offending you do you do you have any idea how much of an asshole you sound like in this tweet ~ Mrs. BB stole that joke from Bill Maher. The porn star in question had an amusing comeback. @StormyDaniels Loving that Bill Maher is still butthurt about the time I was funnier than him on his show. You’d think that he’d have learned from the last time he tried to slut shame me that it doesn’t work. Kinda impressed that this time he was dumb enough to include the whole porn industry ~ A Closer Look at ‘White Fragility’ Theory So, research should allow us to determine whether white fragility is pandemic or hogwash or something in between. … People who write about “whiteness,” like DiAngelo, say repeatedly that they are talking about social structures, not about biology and skin color. But in practical application this distinction disappears: At the level of individuals and group dynamics, “whiteness” and white skin color become synonymous. Inborn characteristics rather than degree of participation in racist social structures defines a person’s social standing and the value of their lived experience or ideas. ~ @LADYBUNNY77 Just heard the news that a drag queen has been booted from @RuPaulsDragRace for pretending to be a female casting agent and forcing people to appear in a string tasteless, demoralizing videos. But wait! How can they fire the show’s host? ~ Things move fast on twitter. I spent all day on a movie set, and left my phone in the car. When I got home, #ElizabethWarren was not even trending. She was already old news. ~ @ninaturner was asked about problems with @BernieSanders She did not answer the question, but made a speech about “The President FDR” and “the spirit of” MLK. ~ “Digital blackface is basically the use of a GIF or meme featuring a black person by a non-black, most specifically white person. When a white or non-black person uses a reaction GIF or meme featuring a black person, in that moment they are choosing to metaphorically don the skin of a black person for the sake of making a point.” ~ You have to decide who you are and force the world to deal with you, not with its idea of you ~ @ihatejoelkim Whenever I see insanely broad generalizations about a group I belong to on here? I simply sit back, remember I am one of the good ones and then tweet out their home address. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
