cedars:

  • Orgasms
  • Lipstick
  • Shoes
  • Pubic hair
  • Pornography
  • Diets
  • Voting
  • Girls
  • Glass ceilings
  • Plastic surgery
  • Celebrities
  • Choices
  • Individuals

The only things I want to talk about with other white women re: feminism are:

  • Capitalism
  • Affect
  • Violence
  • Solidarity
  • Abjection
  • Labour
  • Bodies
  • Collectivities
  • Ideology
  • Imperialism
  • Domination
  • Resistance

HEAR HEAR SARAH GRAM

YEAH.

there’s another white woman in the social work program with me who’s into gender studies but… she is of the brand of feminism identified above. and people keep asking me why we’re not really friends. basic ass shit.

how can one discuss and unpack capitalism/violence/solidarity/labor/imperialism/domination/resistance without non-white feminists and/or feminists of color present? how much can one really learn or achieve among white feminists and white feminists only? how can one genuinely grapple with these issues when one hasn’t necessarily faced all of these issues?

I am on post-surgical painkillers and I am bored. Please feel free to leave compliments and questions in my ask box or w/tumblr mail

Further notes: They had an awesome documentary in the waiting room with giant 3-feet across starfish! And a killer whale put an entire seal in its mouth (sad but still. SHARK) Then there was s seal killing penguins and I could no longer watch.

I feel ok, some pain. More than anything right now it’s tough because they numbed my whole leg so it’s just like there, dead weight.

I fell on the sidewalk. Then ging up 4 flights of stairs suuuucked. I went backwards on my ass but Anna had to hold my leg the whole time.
