seen a bunch of stuff about walking today

like an infographic about “the anatomy of walking” and the atlantic’s “do you walk enough”

and like, i don’t want to even know how much i walk when i work. i don’t want to walk when i get home. i don’t hardly want to do shit but rest. it was like when i was a bike messenger and people would ask “how many miles do you bike in a day?” and i would just be like “i don’t want to know.”

Lesbians are often “defeminized” and “dehumanized” by the criminal justice system, and therefore subjected to considerable abuse by law enforcement agents. Women perceived to be lesbians—often based on gender nonconforming appearance or conduct—are regularly called “dyke,” “bulldagger,” and “wannabe man,” and subject to violence during interactions with law enforcement. For instance, an attorney in Chicago reports that one of her clients, whom she describes as very “butch,” is subjected to constant harassment by police, and is frequently “slammed up against a wall, patted down, and verbally assaulted.” One sixty-five-year-old African American lesbian who lives in senior public housing in San Francisco is so frequently beaten by police officers responding to complaints by homophobic neighbors that she now says, “If I need help, I call the fire department. If they show up, at least it’s not with guns drawn.” One advocate reports knowing an African American lesbian sex worker who is hit and “roughed up” by police officers so frequently that she is inured to the abuse.

So miss me with that “I feel threatened” horseshit.

In other words every 17/20 murders of white folks are done by other white folks.

Let’s talk about that white on white crime, please….

It seems to me that on one page I recognized a portion of an old diary of mine which mysteriously disappeared shortly after my marriage, and, also, scraps of letters which, though considerably edited, sound to me vaguely familiar. In fact, Mr. Fitzgerald (I believe that is how he spells his name) seems to believe that plagiarism begins at home.

—Zelda Fitzgerald, in a review of her husband’s book in 1922 (via trishahaddad)

Reminder that F. Scott Fitzgerald stole his wife’s writing, many times, while suppressing her works. See “Save Me the Waltz”, which he forced her to revise so that he could use parts of it in his own book “Tender Is the Night”. And which author do we study in school?

I didn’t know this.

He also encouraged her to have affairs so he could use that for inspiration, and when she wanted to leave him for a man she fell in love with, he locked her in their house and wouldn’t let her leave.

When she wanted to publish “Save me the Waltz,” Fitzgerald wrote in his diary about DELIBERATELY trying to TRIGGER her schizophrenic episodes and making her incapable of fighting that battle.

And Fitzgerald scholars KNOW all this.  They write articles about how it was all okay because in the end, it inspired Fitzgerald to write Great Literature.

NEVER READ ANY OF HIS BOOKS AGAIN. AND READ HERS INSTEAD. CONSIGN HIM TO OBLIVION.

Yep. All true. Learned about his trifling ass studying creative writing and English lit. at CSU. Didn’t read ONE of her books on high school, yet we’re taught how amazing and talented he was. Makes me sick. xBx

run run run

can’t wait to be able to run forever. being nice to myself and taking it slow.

but also acknowledging dysphoria feels and probably more excited about decreased body fat because of the shape i want my body to take.

self-care is really difficult sometimes. rituals (even if it’s just drinking water when i wake up) are so important, but i don’t really commit to them. the closest thing i have to ritual is planting near the full moon each month. but i would like for some regularity in life.

the goal of the non-binary petition is flawed, this one is much more realistic and has a serious concrete goal that will help people definitely more than harm them (which the nb petition has the possibility of doing) 

SIGN AND BOOST

There is a High School in Oregon that did this, and I emailed the VP about it and it cost them barely any money and all the response from their student body has been super positive. Changing single-stalled bathrooms is cheap and makes a HUGE difference in the lives of transgender students.
