I make things that make people uncomfortable.

“32,975”

—   

That’s the number of arrest warrants issued in Ferguson last year for nonviolent crimes. Compare that to the population of 21,135 people.

Ferguson is making bank off its own citizens

"White citizens were stopped less than 13% of the time despite making up 29% of the population"

At some point I’ll stop talking about Ferguson. Today is not that day.

“When people fight you to shut you up about a topic like race—and sexism, it means that you have stumbled upon the cultural silence that must be patrolled in order to maintain hegemony.”

My sister is drunk texting me while watching Mulholland Drive.

“…the magic of white supremacy is that its presence is obscured by the focus on race. When a black teenager is unfairly profiled by police, we say it’s “because of the color of his skin,” which—as a construction—avoids the racism at play, from the segregated neighborhood the officer patrols to the pervasive belief in black criminality that shapes our approach to crime. Likewise, it obscures the extent to which this isn’t just different treatment— it’s unequal treatment rooted in unequal conditions.”

"Homonormativity is a chameleon-like ideology that purports to push for progressive causes such as rights to gay marriage and other "activisms" but at the same time creates a depoliticizing effect on queer communities as it rhetorically re-maps and re-codes freedom and liberation in terms of privacy, domesticity, and consumption. In other words, homonormativity anesthetizes queer communities into passively accepting alternative forms of inequality in return for domestic privacy and the freedom to consume. Taking this logic to the extreme, to be gay and to be free therefore means to wear Prada. In other words, identity follows consumption."

Okay so like if you don’t want me to put my face four inches from the painting then you need to put tape down or else I’m gonna do it no matter how many times you tell me not to.

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been asked to back away from art.

Friends from college keep announcing their pregnancies and I keep dying on the inside a little more with each one.
