lack of relationships that are local as well as beneficial are the usual suspects but the crown goes to exacerbation of the ever present demonization of mentally ill people Trump's a sadistic rapist Crazy Anti abortionists have a tendency to commit terrorism Insane Fascists are coming out of the woodwork corruption's rife and people really haven't progressed as much as we'd like to think Needless to say I've had to get rid of a lot of people in my life They're the reason why I don't automatically call someone with the knowledge that they will help me without making me sacrifice my autonomy why the empty terror that is the cornerstone of my major depressive disorder matches the 'civilization' around me why Nazis aren't dead and will never be so long as eugenics comes euipped with the adjectives of 'reasonable' 'inevitable' and 'necessary' instead of those of sterilization euthanization institutionalization and murder As such I don't have the energy to inform people every time they make the world that much unsafe for me They simply have to goEver go into a hospital looking to keep yourself healthy and come out without a womb If not you're probably white and you can read all about it in Medical Apartheid Eugenics and racism go hand in hand in the rhetoric of purity of the race which is why I preface this review as such That's actually a lie as I do whatever the fuck I want these days in one of the few spaces where such range of expression is possible but I remind myself of this as often as I can The times are strange the people are willfully myopic in order to get their schaudenfreude kicks and the end of the 21st century may very well see something as horrifying as disabled KKK doing battle with Nazis of color You can't fight the hydra via surgical attachment

the life giving humanity that is Steven Universe Other times I'll need something uick brutal and short Case in point with Corregidora although the pacing exacted by grad school study lengthened less than 200 pages to nearly a month which is exhausting in its own backwards comparisons right Nevertheless the rewards are many another work I would not have purchased had I not been familiar with the 500 GBBW a text which melds in coincidentally powerful ways with my critical thoughts on the structure that is intersectional social justice and a meditation on the maelstrom that is misogynoir that takes all of the rape culture all of the appropriative culture all the gendered capitalism all the performative respectability all of the biology all of the sirsur in names all of the history that will be kicking so long as white people think they're walking over its grave and grits it out in 185 pages of truth sex and self expression It's one of those books that will be read by an obscenely low percentage of people who should be reuired to read it and of those who do even less will look at themselves within its context and set about doing something about it But that's the comfort zone for you Trigger warnings are censorship but god forbid we find something worrisome about those who self censor by reading only the white or the male or both My veins are centuries meeting There's a uote on the back of this by John Updike that makes me really glad I never read the back of this before purchasing it I mean was Maya Angelou the only accredited black woman writer running around In any case he praises it for its lacking polemic rhetoric and outrage which tells me he either got off so much on all the sexual abuse that his already limited critical faculties shut down or he really believed Ursa when she compared her avoidance of an abusive husband to her simultaneous grand and great grandfather's facilitation of her ancestry The only aspect I agree with is that it's not a polemic Teaching children that all was fine and dandy on Thanksgiving is polemic Taking indigenous languages as state names and creating public white spaces out of thriving nonwhite communities is polemic Every mewl and puke of the 1492 rhyme is polemic as while one may attack ideas via loud spoken insults it is far effective to render the space around them a vacuum These days I am able to research on Youtube the oral cultures that have survived every bookburning enslavement and genocide but when considering how my generation has a shorter average lifespan than that which birthed me I don't know how long the children of the next have to wrest themselves from the polemic of a US citizen's education and listen to those who were actually there they might wont your pussy but if you do anything to get back at them it'll be your life they be wonting and then they make even that some kind of sex show all them beatings and killings wasn't nothing but sex circuses and all them white peoples mens womens and childrens crowding around to see This book swears than I do articulates than I do renders the concept of the blues to a degree of pain higher than any white mind body and soul could take You could write a dissertation on the theory engendered amidst the pussy and the rape if academia was suffused long enough with reality to engage with violence outside of the usual pasty patriarchal purview As it stands academia as a whole is sinking all the uicker as the world has no time for liberal arts when science and the military is at stake These are the days of feeling endangered; you can either help me or get out of my way Let no one polluted my music I will dig out their temples I will pluck out their eyes Antes Que Seja Tarde is a gripping portrait of this harsh
