In this time of term papers I wanted to draw my patron deity, Bullshitticus, god of students and general last minute fudgery, sitting upon his Golden Futon, attended by the muses Caffeina and Thesaurae, whose powers of artificial energy and pretentious vocabulary can be invoked in case of the all-nighter.
I like to think he’s Dionysus’s second cousin or something.
This is genius…
all wise words from the sagest of the sage.
"if feminists want equality does this mean we can punch women now?"

PINE RIDGE INDIAN RESERVATION, S.D. — Dodge tumbleweeds and stray dogs. Venture down a deeply rutted dirt road. Walk into the warmth of a home heated by a wood-burning stove. There’ll be a deer roast marinating on the kitchen counter.
It is here, in a snug home that sits on the edge of nearly 3 million acres of South Dakota prairie, that you’ll find the heart of a culture. It’s here, at the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, where Joe and Randi Boucher make dinner for their two young daughters. The smaller one squirms and is gently admonished: “Ayustan,” she is told — leave it alone.
It’s here where the Lakota language is spoken, taught and absorbed in day-to-day life.

i think what people don’t realize is that people in activist spaces don’t actually like being angry all the time
we want to be able to go about our day without constantly being on guard for casual abuse, degradation, and shitty behavior hurled our way
we’re not angry at you because we think you’re unconditionally terrible people
we’re angry because we fully believe that you can do better
Nelson Mandela’s death has unleashed a flood of whitewashed, politically correct memorials of a man who spent most of his life as a deeply radical and controversial figure.“Mandela will never, ever be your minstrel. Over the next few days you will try so, so hard to make him something he was not, and you will fail. You will try to smooth him, to sandblast him, to take away his Malcolm X. You will try to hide his anger from view.”
Fun US History Fact of the Day: This is an actual Supreme Court case. The pessaries in question were contraceptive diaphragms.
Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.
This is the logical conclusion of a lack of bodily autonomy for women before and during pregnancy. This is where it leads.
i’d like to highlight the fact that she was away from her home country on a business trip (she’s italian but it was britain’s social services who did this), and she was not told they were going to do that. so basically anyone, anywhere can do this to women.
WHAT THE SHIT
