Weird Life

What I love about social justice white people

sage-kun:

juxtapiration:

is every time my friend gets stop to be told off by some white person, very rudely, how his tattoo of a dreamcatcher is racist and insensitive to the Native American people and should removed/apologize/be ashamed.

He is Native American and they confuse him for Mexican every time, and he just states “But I got this at the reservation I lived in for 15 YEARS.” and proceeds to falsely place a curse of his ancestors on them.

please stop making comics about the stereotypical jock boy beating up the stereotypical nerd boy and somehow incorporating love. do not write them under posts about physical indicators of soulmates (glowing chests, names on wrists) and better yet, don’t reblog that shit when you see it!

stop living in this weird fantasy world where anyone’s secretly meant to be with their abuser forever. I can’t believe this is a text post I need to make

Rest stops on highways are liminal spaces where the veil is thin and nobody can tell me differently

Explain

The explanation is that liminal spaces are in between places that bridge Here with There, so in fairy tales we often have the Fairy Ring, the Forest Clearing, the Sudden Misty Foggy Forest, the Bridge, the River, graveyards, in some cases

We also have a ton of american urban mythology around famous roadways and sites off the sides of roads

Archetypes like these occur to mark the places in the world where the veil goes thin and humans can have extra-worldly experiences, out of the ordinary way of living

So why wouldn’t transient spaces like rest stops where everyone is just passing through from one place to the next, never stopping for too long, not be a liminal space where spirits frequent, too

Especially since nobody would know if they were real or not

I planted watermelons in the local community garden this year. I learned how to tell if a melon is ripe - after picking a pair of unripe ones and discovering that the insides look like a giant cucumber, but taste and smell like watermelon. I also learned what squash bugs look like. 

I harvested 5 melons, two of them of the not-ripe variety. I shared the one below with my fellow gardeners and two neighbors, with enough left over to eat for days. It weighed about 30 pounds or 13.6 kilos. 

Yes, that’s green nail polish on my thumb. Me and my heavy baby.

The rest of the melons vanished. Under the cut is negativity, prejudice, and assumptions of race, age, and gender. Also my eternal struggle against those assumptions, and an ending of sorts. You don’t have to read it. Enjoy my melon pictures up there instead.

Oh for crying out loud in a bucket. Have you ever crawled underneath a car that’s been running for more than 5 minutes? Even under-the-bed monsters won’t hide out under a car because the exhaust system gets HOT. Hot enough to burn. Ain’t nobody gonna be creeping under your car and baking like cookies in the oven while they wait for you to finish pumping gas.

Well damn. Explains a lot.

Suddenly I understand some of my fan base a LOT better.  That is Awesome. 

"holy shit there is a name for it" was my reaction before I even scrolled down to the comments.

I just need to keep reblogging this because I cannot even begin to tell you how profound a feeling of YES and THIS and THERE IS A WORD FOR ME OMG I get every time I see this, and I hope it helps others too.

seriously, anytime you see a post with a comment saying “theres a name for it?!” reblog that post because even if it doesnt apply to you any of your followers could be waiting for that revelation.
