Publick Universal Friend - that’s the name Jemima Wilkinson took, when they renounced their gender and took up preaching the word of God in 1776. Originally of Quaker Faith, Friend believed in universal friendship with all people, strict abstinence, and an acceptance of God the father. 

Friend’s message did not find a place in their original community in Rhode Island, but along with several of their siblings, they went to Philadelphia and began preaching. Soon, Friend had a fairly robust following (called Universal Friends), and went on to found a town in upstate New York. Many credit Friend as the first “woman” in America to found a new religion, though I think clearer eyed historians in the future might say first trans-person.

Though Friend’s sect did not last past their death in 1819, strains of their faith influenced many of the other bourgeoning religious movements in the area, which would soon become fertile ground for spiritualists.

I can’t say about this person’s identity (what a context in which to produce it!), but I will say

changing your name to “Publick Universal Friend” is CARRYING and I LOVE it

Totally missed the “first trans person” commentary which I am not into but this is pretty cool. Publick Universal Friend!

The best early birthday present ever!!!

Reblogging bec you have to understand that I have candles that are dead hands like this one and each finger has a wick and when the candle drips it’s blood red. Like everything else in my life, they were purchased in the 90s when Ron was here on a visit, we found them at the 99¢ store and I bought like 20.

“I do believe you have a wound too. I do believe it is both specific to you and common to everyone. I do believe it is the thing about you that must be hidden and protected, it is the thing that must be tap danced over five shows a day, it is the thing that won’t be interesting to other people if revealed. It is the thing that makes you weak and pathetic. It is the thing that truly, truly, truly makes loving you impossible. It is your secret, even from yourself.”

- Charlie Kaufman (via awritersruminations)

“In August Pitchfork reported that Surfer Blood front man John Paul Pitts had been arrested for domestic battery, and no one implicated lame indie-rock in Pitts’s actions.”

Part of the reason why we won’t post the alleged Lil Reese assault video (via chicago-reader)

Really important. The answer isn’t to go easier on rappers who commit violence against women, though — it’s to work against the racism that makes them the only group whose reputation is tied to this behavior. If we’re going to bring up Rihanna every time we mention Chris Brown, let’s keep reminding people about John Paul Pitts (here’s the Pitchfork story, which quotes a pretty terrifying police report) every time we cover Surfer Blood. (That being said, the real reason not to post the video is out of respect for the victim, who has a right to privacy — and whose suffering should never be our entertainment.)

YES

And can I just say, instead of sitting around at EMP debating whether Gaga is a feminist this is the shit everyone should be talking about.
