thoughtgatolog:

The weight of these albums is unbearable. Let them die. They have served their purpose. I am unable and unwilling to learn from them. Read them their last rites. Bury them. Deep. Mark their graves with wooden signs. Visit the gravesites on occasion. Wear my dark glasses and toss flowers to the ground while the rain falls from my cheeks.

I have long believed you need to keep certain songs, certain singers, far away, where they can’t hurt you or influence you or trick you. Let them die.

"Bridges are never permanent; they must be built again and again through dialogue and coalition work…."

“Bridges are never permanent; they must be built again and again through dialogue and coalition work. In some respects, the impermanence of bridges speaks to the transcience of ally identities. We must resist the notion that claiming an ally identity is a place of arrival rather than a process. Much as placing a sticker on an office door does not de facto make it a safe place, so claiming an ally identity also cannot de facto prepare us to act as an ally in all situations, for we can never imagine all the matrices or formations of the ways race, class, gender, and sexuality shape our personal histories to create complex and complicated subjectivities in particular configurations of time and space where our lives intersect and, often, collide. Indeed, allies-in-process must surrender to the (un)knowable, an act demonstrating respect for others rather than being a mere nod toward “differences” experienced by differently positioned subjects. This act of surrender moves us away from the comforts of social safety secured through inclusive notions of colorblindness, whitewashing, and “straight-washing.” We need to decolonize our imagination of this binary logic and seek ways of conceiving spaces and ally relationships that are mobile and fluid.”

This sounds like the best feminist Haunted House ever! Someone get Judy Chicago and Miriam Shapiro STAT! No, wait, obviously it is my life work, but they can help.

PS I love saying STAT! What does it even mean? It is a relic of a beloved childhood show, Emergency.

PPS Ah, it is a shortened version of the Latin statim, “immediately.” How fucking awesome is that? LATIN. Nurses yelling in Latin.

PPPS We went from Eve’s Tunnel to Latin, everyone! Together, here in the PPs.

What does love feel like?

Like a great misfortune, a monstrous parasite, a permanent state of emergency that ruins all small pleasures.
