we lived like gods




Cait! I manage monsters at a haunted house in Austin. TX. I'm also pretty damn queer.

“Tonight I love you in a way that you have not known in me: I am neither worn down by travels nor wrapped up in the desire for your presence. I am mastering my love for you and turning it inwards as a constituent element of myself. This happens much more often than I admit to you, but seldom when I’m writing to you. Try to understand me: I love you while paying attention to external things. At Toulouse I simply loved you. Tonight I love you on a spring evening. I love you with the window open. You are mine, and things are mine, and my love alters the things around me and the things around me alter my love.”

Final for my Time Arts class. Nothing gets you in touch with your own anger quite like listening to this and thinking about all the times you’ve been objectified and belittled.

THANK YOU

How is her name ghetto tho? It’s literally a variation on her mother’s side of the family’s surname Beyince. Not to mention the problematic fuckshit with shaming black people for having names that are different. Basically, bye.

There’s really no reason to explain why it’s not ghetto because there’s no such thing as a ghetto name.

i thought whiteys liked french stuff

My name is Angelique, which is french, but I’ve been harassed about it being ‘ghetto’ my whole life.  It’s not because it’s different, it’s because the name belongs to a Black body.  White people can name their child wild, meaningless shit like Pilot Inspektor, Apple, Dweezil, and Moon Unit, but that’s considered creative and quirky…yet common Black names such as Lakeisha and Shaniqua, which have meanings such as “she who lives” and “god is gracious”, are considered ghetto [and therefore worthy of ridicule].  I’m sick and goddamn tired of it.

I once told a joke about a straight person.

They came after me in droves.

Each one singing the same:

Don’t fight fire with fire.

*

What they mean is: Don’t fight fire with anything.

Do not fight fire with water.

Do not fight fire with foam.

Do not evacuate the people.

Do not sound the alarms.

Do not crawl coughing and choking and spluttering to safety.

Do not barricade the door with damp towels.

Do not wave a white flag out of the window.

Do not take the plunge from several storeys up.

Do not shed a tear for your lover trapped behind a wall of flame.

Do not curse the combination of fuel, heat, and oxygen.

Do not ask why the fire fighters are not coming.

*

When they say: Don’t fight fire with fire.

What they mean is: Stand and burn.

obfuscatingdeity:

the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this

because fifteen dollars and hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve

^That commentary is very important.
