In light of Tumblr threatening to take down DTWPS for not responding nicely enough to the harassment they receive, I thought I’d post some screencaps of just a little bit of the hate and harassment DTWPS and their followers regularly receive.

Hi, now I rarely call on my followers for anything. But I’d really like for you all to use this photoset, as well as the photos I’m going to provide below, and send an email to the Tumblr support staff about their obvious bias in enforcing their terms of service.

I also have a few links that’ll send them directly to the “alleged” hate.

Let’s see if they’re really about insuring a safe environment for their users.

Guys, if we ever needed everyone’s help, this is that time. This isn’t just about DTWPS. This happens REGULARLY. We have to let it be known that it is not okay. 

Seriously where dese complaining mens at that was running they mouth yesterday?

it’s kind of mindblowing to me that there are some ppl who are honestly shocked by this. white privilege is a helluva drug. :/

Shame and signal boost.

The Guardian: When it comes to rock, women are a gender not a genre

The Guardian: When it comes to rock, women are a gender not a genre:

fivedollarradio:

When virtuoso female guitarists appear on the rock radar, they tend to gain the spotlight in the lulls between dominant, malecentric scenes (Britpop, grunge, glam rock), celebrated in isolation as brief, intermittent flashes of brilliance that flare up between the wider, collective scenes. When these women are innovative enough to operate successfully outside a zeitgeist, and gain an audience without the legitimacy and safety of a wider scene, they are seen as ancillary to rock’s larger, holistic pantheon. They are rounded up for “women in rock” trend pieces where “gender is genre”, a rock press narrative that creates a separate, and implicitly lesser, form of rock.

Also it’s probably a little esoteric.

I want to make a “Ransom Center acquires Tavi Gevinson papers” joke, but I can’t find a way to make it not sound mean-spirited. Which it is not. Against Tavi, at least.

Obvs it will be Barnard that acquires, not the papers, but Tavi herself.

"I learnt through him how to be loved for me. That an extra inch here and there makes no difference to his perception of me. In fact he likes my curves and shapeliness. I had finally found my place as a woman, rather than a lost, gawky teen."

"I learnt through him how to be loved for me. That an extra inch here and there makes no difference to his perception of me. In fact he likes my curves and shapeliness. I had finally found my place as a woman, rather than a lost, gawky teen.":

There is little I loathe more in this world than a story of depression, or body dysmorphia, or just plain despair at the social pressures on us and our inability to meet them, that is magically cured by the love of a Good Man, Who Taught Me to Love My_____.

Maybe I just haven’t met mine yet.

Hyphen Magazine: Reimagining Revolution: Q&A with Grace Lee Boggs

Hyphen Magazine: Reimagining Revolution: Q&A with Grace Lee Boggs:

queerdanceparty:

“I had the fortune to interview long-time civil rights activist and writerGrace Lee Boggsvia phone prior to her visit to the San Francisco Bay Area this week, where she will participate in at least three public events at Stanford, UC Berkeley and San Francisco’s Chinatown. Boggs, 96, may not be as well-known as other activists, but has more than seven decades of activism and grassroots organizing experience, including the labor, Civil Rights, black power, feminist, Asian American and environmental/food justice movements.” - Momo Chang

I would say to a young activist, ‘Do visionary organizing. Turn your back on protest organizing and recognize how that leads you more and more to defensive operations, whereas visionary organizing gives you the opportunity to encourage the creative capacity in people and it’s very fulfilling.’ - Grace Lee Boggs

"After she died he was seized by a great curiosity about what it was like for her. Not that…"

““After she died he was seized
by a great curiosity about what
it was like for her. Not that he
doubted how much she loved him.
But he knew there must have been
some things she had not liked.
So he went to her closest friend
and asked what she complained of.
“It’s all right,” he had to keep
saying, “I really won’t mind.”
Until the friend finally gave in.
“She said sometimes you made a noise
drinking your tea if it was very hot.”

- “Maybe Very Happy,” Jack Gilbert (via clavicola)
