"Who has not asked himself at one time or another: am I a monster or is this what it means to be a person?" - Clarice Lispector.

Hana, 21. college student, feminist, Jew, anxious, body lover, tarot reader, social justice warrior, nerd, poet, angry cat. occasional banana. cis, white, she/her.

“If Claire becomes Scottish, she can’t be forced from clan lands. How can Claire become Scottish you ask? If she marries! Claire is like, Oh, I’m not marrying you, and Dougal chuckles, says something crass about grinding her corn, which is a great euphemism for bad sex if nothing else. Then we realize he means for Claire to marry Jamie. I am pretty sure I heard a chorus of angels at this point. Jamie comes upon Claire and offers her some drink and they talk over their potential nuptials. She asks, “Doesn’t it bother you that I’m not a virgin?” “No,” Jamie says, “So long as it doesn’t bother you that I am.” The angels began singing even louder. You’re telling me Claire will have a blank slate and that amazing body to work with? There is a god and her name is Beyoncé.
After mulling over her options a bit longer, Claire takes a big swig of drink, and makes her way back to the menfolk, grabbing the bottle because for some inexplicable reason, she’s going to need a lot more liquor to wrap her mind around being married to the hottest man in Scotland. I don’t need such convincing. I am ready for the wedding and the wedding night and the honeymoon and the christening of a new home and the fight sex and make up sex and Tuesday night sex and all the other flavors of sex Claire and Jamie are finally going to have if Beyoncé wills it, Amen.”

bedpartymakeover:

Tumblr is a real-time, continuous documentation of language evolution and race dynamics. Over the last three years I’ve seen the language used by the Black users I follow make its way into the lexicon of white and other nonblack people’s vernacular. It happens rapidly and…

I’m always concerned about this because as a white person I’m never sure how okay it is for me to use AAVE and black-originating phrases in my speech. Like I’m obviously not using them to mock people of color but does that even matter, or is it better just to stay away from those linguistic trends altogether? I often hear songs on the radio where obviously white singers are using phrases like “this is how we roll” or “all my girls blowin up my phone” and I just wince, it sounds so awful and stolen I can’t even believe they’re doing it and making money off it. I definitely don’t want to be that person. But at the same time refusing to adopt any black-originating language might just be even more weird and stigmatizing and putting up unnecessary barriers? Like “I’m too fucking proper to speak anything but pure white people dictionary speech.” Idk, I really *want* to believe that it’s okay for me to say “slain” or “ain’t nobody got time for that” in casual conversation, but I don’t want to make anyone feel unsafe. Im open to thoughts/suggestions on this if you have them

Oh shit even with huge missing chunks Sappho’s poetry is so beautiful

Update

Deleted tinder after approximately 48 hours. The screenshot guy from earlier refused to accept that I didn’t want to meet up with him even though he “just wanted to be friends,” then called me judgmental and sheltered and said I was a beautiful girl that he wasn’t going to “let slip away that easily.” I think I finally ended the convo but omg, what a mess… I shouldn’t have given him my real # but he kept asking about it and I was drunk and happy playing board games with friends and I wasn’t thinking. Well hopefully he’s done, if not then I’ll be coming back to y’all for advice on how to block someone from texting me…
