There is nothing I do not love about this bird.

It took me some time to figure out which end of its head was front. I enjoyed that time immensely.

Hey Ferb! I know what I’m going to be for Halloween!

if my professor skates over the fact that Sonnet 20 is literally Shakespeare saying “yo I’m super gay” I’m gonna be pissed

yeah I’m angry about bi erasure too. 

As a straight woman I feel the same way about erasure of GLBT people. Not intending to be offensive or anything so apologies if this is offensive but how do we know that Shakespeare’s sonnets in general are autobiographical? AFAIK that sonnet was dedicated to a man, but the feelings in the text may not be Shakespeare the poet’s but those of a persona, which doesn’t disprove or prove that he wasn’t or was gay. But then again, people in general don’t know all that much about Shakespeare’s personal feelings so anything people say is guesswork

Why would Shakespeare have invented a gay poetry writing persona when m/m activity was literally punishable by death?

I’m gonna go off on some wild guesswork here, but it’s almost like we know he was married to a woman and they had three children, but he addressed 126 stunningly lovely sonnets to men. It’s almost like we know the rest of his poems were addressed to a lady. It’s almost like Shakespeare’s works lend themselves to queer readings because he was queer and enjoyed playing with and subverting traditional notions of gender/ courtly love/ poetry. This is pretty radical, but maybe writers write about things because they want to express their lived experiences and desires. 

In conclusion, LOVE THAT BISEXUAL.

"Great works are performed, not by strength, but by perseverance. Yonder palace was raised by single stones, yet you see its height and spaciousness. He that shall walk with vigour three hours a day will pass in seven years a space equal to the circumference of the globe."

Samuel Johnson (via itsquoted)

He that shall walk with vigour three hours a day will pass in seven years, a span equal to 7671 hours or 319.625 days walking. I’m an advocate of walking (I LOVE a good walk), but Dr Johnson here is daft. What are you building here with walking that would compare to a palace? You’ve circumferated the earth, what now? What would YOU do with an extra 45.7 days per year?

Walks are an excellent event on their own. Not as “building something.”

"I tend to support more of a Marxian perspective. I do believe that an increase in population will result in an increase in production. I also see how an equal distribution of resources could result in less poverty. I do however, believe that people within poverty need to be actively working…

I do believe, however that this person is trying to identify as a Marxist while using neo-liberal practical principles. I do think that this person needs education. I do.

I did attempt to point out to them, in the discussion, that these ideas don’t actually go very well together. (Leaving aside the classism and racism living inside that post. Baby steps, Bob, baby steps.)

΅Marxian” (adj): my Demography textbook’s cowardly way of trying to adjectivize Marx without using Marxist.

"I tend to support more of a Marxian perspective. I do believe that an increase in population will result in an increase in production. I also see how an equal distribution of resources could result in less poverty. I do however, believe that people within poverty need to be actively working their way out of poverty (if possible) to lighten the burden on society. I believe there needs to be a stop to generations upon generations within the welfare system. Programs and strict guidelines and mandatory drug testing should be required by welfare recipients."

"Vancouver School Board Introduces Gender-Neutral Pronouns"

"Students and teachers in Vancouver can now use the gender-neutral pronouns "xe," "xem," and "xyr." The move is designed to accommodate students for whom "he" and "she" does not fit or is deemed inappropriate…
"The newly coined pronouns — xe, xem, and xyr — are pronounced to rhyme with the genderless plurals "they," "them," and "their," and all starting with the "z" sound. So phonetically speaking, they’re pronounced "zey, "zem", and "zare.""

the article doesn’t do the issue justice.
the issue regarded policy change, where the vancouver school board’s (VSB) LGBTQ+ advisory committee re-wrote existing policy to protect staff and students falling on the queer and trans spectrums. 
the policy revision includes
-they/them/their and non-traditional pronouns being recognized by the school system
-required used of preferred names and pronouns by all staff and students
-preferred names/pronouns on all school records
-gender-accesible washrooms and change rooms available to those who require them
-disciplinary action taken against those who act in a discriminatory or hateful manner towards students, staff, and families falling on the queer and trans spectrums
—————-
the consultation was the longest ever done by the VSB, with over 120 speakers spread across 3 meetings. 
the process also resulting in two school board trustees being ejected form their party’s caucus, due their discriminatory actions and arguments.

Makes me wonder why the fuck your dumb ass is standing in a house with goddamn bloody writing on the wall instead of hopping aboard the nope train to Fuckthatville

I do not believe that I can improve upon this analysis.

We use language in various forms from the moment we’re born until the moment we die. To pretend or argue that it has no power, that it can’t be used to marginalize and oppress, that it can’t be violent, that it can’t be used to murder, is either immensely disingenuous, or completely naive.

When I say media needs more bi people what I mean is:

  • More engaging, well-rounded, bi characters of all gender expressions, especially bi men because they are really lacking in our media


What I do not mean is:

  •  Add another oversexualised, thin cis woman who gets abused for her sexuality and/or ‘cant make up her mind’
