  2. some thoughts on compulsive male heteorsexuality

    tashabilities:

    theirhappyistooloud:

    fucking thank you

    Boop

    i was just talkin about with somebody the way that boys are socialized from real early to like, get hot over the sight of a woman, just real real hot! with any practical advice on how to have a fuckin conversation—let alone good sex—just tossed right out the window. the point of male heterosexuality, in our society isn’t the pleasure of the woman, and it’s not for the full pleasure of the man. 

    male heterosexuality is sort of a religion with specific tenets, taboos and mores. it’s used to sell itself relentlessly, intertwined with beer and cars and soaps and all it needs is the agreement that yes, that extremely specific woman is hot. 

    at the kitchen and the cafe i work for you get dudes checkin yr papers all day, nudging you. it’s not enough for them to know that woman across the room is hot, they also really need to know, almost literally, which side yr on. so there’s this pressure on you, all day, to admit to some leering dude that a woman is hot, in order to maintain that trust and camaraderie and good co-worker relations.

    and when you don’t deliver you see the eye contact start to turn quicker, the jokes being withdrawn, the attention getting brusquer, the requests taking longer to approve. that’s it in it’s subtlest form. the more extreme and desperate males will will on-the-spot insist you join them in this fuckin game of Hetero Quest! where the more women you appreciate for their bodies alone, the more straight and normal and safe and good and trustworthy you are. which is why that is now my exact. specific criteria for ending up on my Creep Watch list. you’re on probation if you cop to that shit to me and i don’t like you as much for it. 

    if you don’t go along with it with somebody intense, you have to get into this fucking argument and you’re thereafter branded the “sensitive, PC” one. 

    male heterosexuality subscribes to a three-brick pyramid of broad personality/gender types: very masculine (on top), very feminine (underneath), and if you are not their favorite (on top) and they don’t want to fuck you (middle) then you end up in the third type zone, an unexplored, vaguely undesirable type, and thus you are welcome to all the bullshit they aim downwards, with none of the evolved attempts to understand bc there’s not desire to connect. you get all the teasing and weird, passive-aggressive headgames, if not straight up violence and abuse and murder. 


    male heterosexuality it is so limited in its worldview that every person in the world is flattened out into some extreme and weird and contorted version of themselves and if they aren’t, and they aren’t actively working to get into that extreme exaggeration, they serve no functional purpose and have nothing of social value to offer.

     
  3. i had a jump-off tangent for this but it turned into an essay so i’m just gonna post it on my feed but i’ve been thinking so hard about the weird hypocrisies in heterosexual culture.

    your gay friends are all talking shit behind your back 100%

    Yeah, you support them all the way.. We’ll most of the way.. We’ll some of the way.. Clearly not as far as marriage.. Cause marriage ain’t for gays.. Or something

    You hear so many of these people say, “I have a lot of gay friends but don’t believe in same sex marriage”, but you never hear gay people say “I’ve lots of friends who think it should be illegal for me to marry the person I love”.

    So, here’s a PSA for everyone who is against marriage equality, but thinks they have gay friends. You probably don’t. What you have are gay acquaintances who have learned to quietly put up with your bullshit because it’s the path of least resistance and they just don’t have the energy to “My Fair Lady” your ass into being a decent human being.

    oh my good perfect noun to verb maneuver and this post is so on point as well

     

  6. "The net worth of the average black household in the United States is $6,314, compared with $110,500 for the average white household, according to 2011 census data. The gap has worsened in the last decade, and the United States now has a greater wealth gap by race than South Africa did during apartheid. (Whites in America on average own almost 18 times as much as blacks; in South Africa in 1970, the ratio was about 15 times.)"

    2. If something does NOT pass the Bechdel Test: don't freak out - the test is inherently flawed and only takes into consideration a very select and narrow group of variables
    3. If something passes the Sexy Lamp Test: wow great okay
    4. If something does not pass the Sexy Lamp Test: freak out because that means that the story still would have made sense if that particular female character had been replaced by a sexy lamp and that's hella fuckin' sad

    Forty-six million white adults today can trace the origins of their family wealth to the Homestead Act of 1862. This bill gave away valuable acres of land for free to white families, but expressly precluded participation by Blacks.

    Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Djibouti. Those are the countries. It will be drought-resistant species, mostly acacias. And this is a fucking brilliant idea you have no idea oh my Christ

    This will create so many jobs and regenerate so many communities and aaaaaahhhhhhh

    more info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Green_Wall

    it’s already happening, and already having positive effects. this is wonderful, why have i not heard of this before? i’m so happy!

    Oh yes, acacia trees.

    They fix nitrogen and improve soil quality.

    And, to make things fun, the species they’re using practices “reverse leaf phenology.” The trees go dormant in the rainy season and then grow their leaves again in the dry season. This means you can plant crops under the trees, in that nitrogen-rich soil, and the trees don’t compete for light because they don’t have any leaves on.

    And then in the dry season, you harvest the leaves and feed them to your cows.

    Crops grown under acacia trees have better yield than those grown without them. Considerably better.

    So, this isn’t just about stopping the advancement of the Sahara - it’s also about improving food security for the entire sub-Saharan belt and possibly reclaiming some of the desert as productive land.

    Of course, before the “green revolution,” the farmers knew to plant acacia trees - it’s a traditional practice that they were convinced to abandon in favor of “more reliable” artificial fertilizers (that caused soil degradation, soil erosion, etc).

    This is why you listen to the people who, you know, have lived with and on land for centuries.

    "Anne Bonny and Mary Read were pirates, as renowned for their ruthlessness as for their gender, and during their short careers challenged the sailors’ adage that a woman’s presence on shipboard invites bad luck."

    Sculpture by Erik Christianson.

    I’m not entirely sure that the statue really needed to have a tit out.

    How dare women try to have nipples.

    Actually I’ve seen this before and I can tell you— it’s because these women were bad ass pirates and when they killed someone they’d expose one or both breasts so that when their victim died, (s)he knew that they were killed by a woman.

    ACTUALLY Anne Bonny purposely wore loose fitting clothes and displayed her breasts openly at all times during battle - mainly because men were distracted by them, and she took pleasure in killing said men while they were too busy staring at her breasts. Mary Read dressed mainly as a man (after posing as her deceased brother, Mark, for the entirety of her childhood) and both ladies cross-dressed from time to time, hopping between ships. They were known as the ‘fierce hell cats’ due to their ferocious tempers, and were key elements to Captain ‘Calico Jack’ Rackham’s crew - they were the only two known female pirates in the Golden Age of Caribbean piracy. IN FACT, when the ship was captured by the British Navy, Anne and Mary were the ONLY TWO pirates who fought while the males of the crew hid - they were all tried to be hung as pirates but Bonny and Read were both pregnant and were pardoned.

    Calico Jack was a lover to Bonny, and as he was to be hung, Bonny’s final words to him were, “Had you fought like a man, you need not be hung like a dog.” Bonny and Read were possibly two of the most badass fucking pirates and they were FEMALE. The more you know. 

    this post just evolved like three times, that was amazing

    Taken from MANTRAS zine

    This zine is a culmination of how i got myself thru/still getting myself thru things and also things that i love and things that make me happy, mostly Stevie Nicks. I hope i don’t come off as someone who has her shit together, most of this zine is me yelling at myself and it’s really difficult to follow the directions that i give to myself, like “TAKE WHAT’S YOURS” and “DON’T HIDE!” it’s very difficult and on most days i don’t follow these directions and i fail completely. But i still yell at myself because it’s necessary that i always have these things etched in me so i have something to hold on to when shit hits the fan. - Fabiola
