So I’m doing a class on fairytales and for this week the reading was a buzzfeed article called “30 things you probably didn’t know about Disney’s Beauty and the Beast” and the lecturer also sent us some commentary which included, “Disney has actually very few blondes. There aren’t many beautiful blondes. It’s mainly brunettes and redheads,” as a comment on diversity in representation god save me.

Everything is just draining me. So many things to consider all the time. So many times I’ve been interrupted in the middle of my sentences this past week. Why does lia always beat me in scrabble and why do I keep getting ill?? Why are all of my favourite teaching staff on leave right now?
I’m having a white girl argument on facey about racism and racial slurs and this is honestly the worst thing ever i want to cut my own head off this is just ridiculous
I got shit to do today. Don’t have time for “there were no white people during the Khmer Rouge so we should pretend we live in a shared community of man”
— what is this male sexuality that requires our humiliation, that literally swells with pride at our anguish;
— what does it mean that yet again— and after years of feminist analysis and activism— the men (gay, leftist, whatever) who proclaim a commitment to social justice are resolute in their refusal to face up to the meaning and significance of their enthusiastic advocacy of yet another woman-hating plague;
— what does it mean that the pornographers, the consumers of pornography, and the apologists for pornography are the men we grew up with, the men we talk with, live with, the men who are familiar to us and often cherished by us as friends, fathers, brothers, sons, and lovers;
— how, surrounded by this flesh of our flesh that despises us, will we defend the worth of our lives, establish our own authentic integrity, and, at last, achieve our freedom?”
Two of the best feelings are
1. When you run into a friend from another time and place and stay out until dawn with them
2. When you message an absent friend but forget that you’ve done it and then the next day there is a nice little message from them waiting for you.
Another one of the best feelings is being able to get delivery pasta and steak to your door when you’re hungover and spending upwards of eight hours watching Always Sunny
