Expat living in the UK. BPD, PCOS, A-OK.

Just another Tumblr Feminist/Social Justice Warrior. (I will respect your triggers and will post warnings just ask.)

WARNING: Sometimes I get angry and get into long-winded arguments. I don't believe in being cruel in call-outs to those within your own community, but if you're a racist/sexist/homophobe I believe you have lost the right to basic politeness.

The Red Power Mixtape: Che Christ & Indigenous Hip Hop
The Red Power Mixtape is a whirlwind of resistance music. Che Christ is no stranger to backlash, since he is named after white icons and raps in Lakota, Spanish, and English. Before judging Che Christ, consider that sometimes icons must be destroyed for ideologies to survive. “You’re the great white hype, but Eye believe in the Wakan,” Che Christ self-reflectively raps in “New Spirit (Peace & Harmony)”.
Che Christ was born in the desert lands of his Pipá and Quechan (Colorado River Tribes) ancestors. Raised on traditional teachings, bird songs, a high respect for the land, and a steady diet of underground hip-hop, Che Christ maneuvered the inner-city streets of Phoenix, using his words to combat the oppression around him. His ancestors demanded traditional knowledge be kept a secret, so Che Christ is challenged to find a way to share the lessons he grew up with.

Rally in Support/Memory of Gaza - Derby, Derbyshire

1- After the rally. It poured the entire time and I was soaked to the bone. This was after some of the crowd dispersed.

2,3 - At the beginning. Lots of little ones running, playing, talking. It was a really nice counter-point to the occasion. 

4 - These boys held this banner in the rain during the majority of the rally, in the rain.

5 - After several speakers talked about their family back in Gaza, prayed, and gave thanks for the support of the local Palestinian community in Derby, they began reading the names of those who had died. During this time, the speaker gave out and this man shouted each name over the 75-100 people in attendance, while it stormed.

6 - Chanting and shouts of solidarity.

Kitty has gone almost a full week without any substantial food or liquids. She’s dehydrated, weak, depressed… I catch her trying to force sips of water only to have it come right back up. I haven’t seen her this bad in a very long time. She needs her medication… but we are completely broke.

For…

Guys help out my friends please?

Update: The possibility of us ending up homeless is becoming more and more of a reality. We can barely afford food let alone pay for our portion of rent.

Its beginning to look like we have to relocate,again. The problem, being how overly expensive our cost of living is becoming, we can’t afford to save up even a little to move. I am looking for a job while Sir is worked like a dog and paid less than he deserves.

We need to get out of LA.
Please. Anything helps.

Haha well happy late birthday then! ^.^

Thank you kindly, young lady. ;P

I had an exotic animal party with a local rescue/party group. I MET THE RACOON USED AS A MODEL FOR ROCKET RACOON.

Also, an amazingly fat skunk named Merlin who just wanted to snuggle. And eat grubs. But mostly snuggle.

A couple panels I like from the minicomic about nonbinary gender I’m working on.  Still on track to hopefully have copies by SDCC!  (And in the meanwhile, all the pages are being posted to my patreon as I finish ‘em — up to 12 now!)

The new, non ableist version of “did I stutter?”

DID I RUIN YOUR DOCTORAL THESIS?

Also I wouldn't call Israel apartide. I'm aware about how messed up a lot of the colonizing is but the local courts utilities etc and Palestinian run

x , y

z: Israel is not “an apartheid-like” state. Israel is an apartheid state. There are Jewish-only settlements in the West Bank, separate roads for Israeli and Palestinian citizens as documented in Vibeke Løkkeberg’s documentary Tears of Gaza, and military checkpoints. The ID system and Israeli West Bank Barrier further contribute to Israel’s status as an apartheid state. The term “apartheid” is not used as an insult but rather as an accurate label for the occupier….The  Palestinians could  not have protested over what they “considered to be apartheid-like discrimination” if they protested over the Israeli apartheid that is what the United Nations defined as apartheid at the 1973 International Conference on the Suppression & Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid.

I checked the “over 30” and “over 40” tags just to find out if there’s anyone else out there who’s around my age, and all I’m finding is porn. Great!

So if you’re over 30 (or 40, or 50, or 60) and you’re not a porn blog, can you please reblog this so I know you’re out there? Thanks!

EVERYONE! STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING!

I’m 29 and I’ve just been informed that I’m too old for this website. Thank you for our many years together, thank you to my few hundred followers/friends, it’s been grand.

Adieu, adieu….*cough*

Adieu!

I was called a grandma and a crazy aunt. Apparently, I am too old as well. Clearly all the porn on here is for the twelve to fifteen year old demographic. 

Woo, I’m 34 and I guess that I just wasn’t told I can’t have fun any longer.

Farewell friends. I’m afraid I have to go somewhere else, probably the bingo hall to hang out with all the rest of the old maids. That’ll teach me to go somewhere without having the proper fake credentials to show I’m just “old enough” to be on a web site.

Yes, let’s go play bingo together after I whoop some of these fetuses with my cane to teach them to respect their elders. (Maybe it’s dependent on fandom? It pisses me the fuck off.)

I’ve gotten that treatment pretty much everywhere I go.

I was talking to someone a few years back on an old MMO, Ragnarok Online, and the topic of age came up. Once the guy heard that I was in my 20s, he was like “Aren’t you too old to play this game?” I got understandably pissed off and told him he’d be a boring adult. :|

I don’t understand the mentality of being “too old” for anything. I’m pretty sure I reblogged something just last week where I said that there’s no hard limit for enjoying something. You don’t suddenly go “I don’t like this any longer!” when you turn 18. I still love the Disney movies I grew up with and continue to enjoy the more recent ones. I still love playing video games and I actually own every single game I played when I was younger.

I’m going to borrow your word for them and say that these fetuses can fuck right off with the idea that being “old” means that you can only have fun with whatever they consider “adult” things.

I think it’s time for the 25 and over set to carve our own corner of tumblr that is less excited about Pokemon and Shrek.

I’ll start: I get excited about infographics about basic grammar concepts I’ve forgotten and illustrative art and comics that speak to my innate confusion about how to live my life.

old / figure I’d post it for fun.
