"The difference two years can make."
Albert Goldbarth, “The Sciences Sing a Lullaby”
i love the term “bear with me” because it could mean either 1 of 2 things:
- asking someone to be patient
- confirmation that the zoo heist was a success
I don’t know why this is so funny but I legit just laughed for probably 10 minutes straight oh my god
"I was an English teacher. The demands of the system required that I give out grades, but I never felt good about it. How do you grade someone’s writing? Writing is about revision. It’s about access to self. If a student writes a poem, and it’s the best they can do at the moment, how are you supposed to compare that to the student sitting next to them? How are you supposed to give one a 90, and one an 85?"
“I hate conflict so much that I find myself agreeing with pretty much everything that everyone says.”
This type of attitude leads to the fetishization of our countries and people by not only other races but even Latinx’s ourselves
can you say Thomas Jefferson and everyone of his co signers of the declaration of so called independence. yeah independence for who ?
Not so fun fact: those signers were so hounded by the fact that they kept slaves that many of them bent over backwards to justify keeping slaves, including pointing out cranial structures and cultural differences. They were claiming black people to be subhuman so that they could claim they wanted freedom while still keeping slaves.
Fetishizers and racists love to argue that if you find someone sexually attractive, aesthetically pleasing, or have lust for them; you “are not racist”.
Quite the contrary, lusting someone because of a fetish means that you do not see them as human; merely a play you for your sexual fantasies. It is dehumanizing. The object of lust can easily be replaced by anyone who looks similar and their happiness is not needed as long as yours it guaranteed.
Usually when people ask how a racist can have sex with someone of another race I use this very example of the slave/master complex.

So it’s 2014 and I don’t want a flying car, I want people to fucking admit that having an Asian fetish isn’t about fucking aesthetic preferences or fucking loving another culture, it’s about being racist as fuck and thinking that all Asians look alike or that there’s actually such a thing as “Asian culture”
