this song is everything to me
Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)
The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover

hey bubs! now that we’re done with the third issue of the zine (coming out the 13th!) we are now looking for more cool babes of colour to join us here, on the blog as weekly staffers. email us with anything you would like to contribute on a weekly basis (playlists, movie reviews, literally anything) and whatever ideas you have to email@example.com. here are the guidelines.
the coalition zine is a zine dedicated to celebrating grrrls of colour and our girlhood, triumphs, traumas, and taking up as much space as we can.
This place is damp and ghostly
I am already gone.
And the halls were lined
with the disembodied and dustly wings,
which fell from flesh gasplessly.
And I go where the trees go,
and I walk from a higher education
(for now, for hire).
"When I was a little kid," she says, "we used to drive back and forth to [Nevada City] and I used to look at the houses that we passed and I never fell asleep on the drive home, although the kids in the car all fell asleep. I just sort of watched the houses as we’d drive by and watch the windows. Sometimes you’d see people moving behind them, and sometimes they’d just be sitting across from one another at the table.
"I was really little then and I think that little kids know something," she continues. "I think they’re a lot braver than we give them credit for, because they’re willing to look straight at a thing that’s big and sad and beautiful, that is too much for us to look at when we’re a little older. And I guess when I write songs, I’m trying to write them from the place in myself that’s childlike. But not childlike simplistic, childlike in the opposite way, that kind of bigness of awareness that kids have. Like, the part of them where they’re watching the window and they’re not gonna tell their mom and dad and they’re not gonna tell the other kids, but like, they just saw a moment between two people sitting at a table and they know something about that moment and they’re going to remember it until the day that they die."
[W]e live in a sexually liberal society, not a liberated one. A truly liberated society is one where sex is value-neutral and not having sex is just as acceptable as having a lot of it.
The fact that asexuals are considered weird, sick, abnormal, mentally ill, repressed, etc is a bold indicator that we are not living in a sexually liberated society but in a liberalized one.

My Least Favorite Trope (and this post will include spoilers for The Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Matrix, Western Civilization, and—cod help me—Bulletproof Monk*.) is the thing where there’s an awesome, smart, wonderful, powerful female character who by all rights ought to be the Chosen One and the hero of the movie, who is tasked with taking care of some generally ineffectual male character who is, for reasons of wish fulfillment, actually the person the film focuses on. She mentors him, she teaches him, and she inevitably becomes his girlfriend… and he gets the job she wanted: he gets to be the Chosen One even though she’s obviously far more qualified. And all he has to do to get it and deserve it is Man Up and Take Responsibility.
And that’s it. Every god-damned time. The mere fact of naming the films above and naming the trope gives away the entire plot and character arc of every single movie.
