Love how all the POC look 1000% done with this shit.
oh I wonder why
snorting the marajuanas.
I prefer injecting it
i just put mine in my butt
those days when you’re just like
passionately, aggressively, exceptionally queer
you just wake up like hello world i am very fucking queer either celebrate with me or get the fuck out of my way
i like how cis people act like it would be the worst thing in the world not to assume people’s genders i mean we don’t assume people’s names what if you just met someone and you were like “hey emily” and they were like “thats not my name its megan” and you were like “oh well how was i supposed to know. you look like an emily to me. i guess i can try to call you megan but its gonna be hard because i just see you as such an emily”
fun tip: say ‘another gender’ instead of ‘the opposite gender’ and crush the binary beneath your feet
THIS IS SO IMPORTANT
QUEER PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THEIR HISTORY
Funny how people conveniently forget what pride is about in the first place.
'Sista Girls' by Bindi Cole
The term ‘Sistagirl’ is used to describe a transgender person in Tiwi Island culture. Traditionally, the term was ‘Yimpininni’. The very existence of the word provides some indication of the inclusive attitudes historically extended towards Aboriginal sexual minorities. Colonisation not only wiped out many indigenous people, it also had an impact on Aboriginal culture and understanding of sexual and gender expression. As Catholicism took hold and many traditions were lost, this term became a thing of the past. Yimpininni were once held in high regard as the nurturers within the family unit and tribe much like the Faafafine from Samoa. As the usage of the term vanished, tribes’ attitudes toward queer indigenous people began to resemble that of the western world and religious right. Even today many Sistergirls are excluded from their own tribes and suffer at the hands of others.
Within a population of around 2500, there are approximately 50 ‘Sistagirls’ living on the Tiwi Islands. This community contains a complex range of dynamics including a hierarchy (a queen Sistergirl), politics, and a significant history of pride and shame. The Sistagirls are isolated yet thriving, unexplored territory with a beauty, strength and diversity to inspire and challenge.
MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,
"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."
this is literally the devil’s work and we’re all just sitting around like spirit-possessed endtables are an appropriate thing to have
if someone ever calls u a mean name just respond “nah” like how do you even respond to that realistically
some person: hey asstown
i think my favourite part about this post is that out of all the mean names someone could realistically call you, they chose “asstown”
