    MAPS HOW DO THEY WORK

    Earlier this week, I drove six hours to my hometown in Illinois with the rabbits so that Pierrot could see a diagnostic specialist. The good news is that his tumour is benign. The bad news is that I still need to take him somewhere for a series of radiation treatments, and the radiation machine at Michigan State (the nearest facility) is currently broken. This means my closest options are: 

    • Chicago (although we’re not sure yet if there’s a rabbit anesthesiologist—yes, that is a thing—to work with us there) 
    • West Lafayette, Indiana
    • Guelph, Ontario

    So here’s the confusing part: According to my iPhone, Guelph is 4 hours and 36 minutes away, while West Lafayette is 4 hours away. BUT, according to Google maps Guelph is 3 hours and 45 minutes away, whereas West Lafayette is 4 hours and 19 minutes away. 

    WHICH ONE IS RIGHT?!?!?!

    HELP?

    if you don’t think this carries an important message about our society then you are what is wrong with human society today

    And this is why when you see a post empowering and uplifting black women, do not invade it with “don’t you mean all women.” No, because this is not the reality of “all women.”

    We need to help end these types of thoughts from ever entering a child’s mind. How this can be achieved is a mystery to me, but a good start might be not treating a large portion of our society like some kind of disease and instead treating them as human beings. Maybe that would be a start.

    It’s impossible not to internalise the racial politics of beauty standards. Even if you logically know better, it’s still finds a way to get to you. I consider myself an activist against antisemitism, but that didn’t stop me from looking in the mirror before I’d straightened my very curly, semitic hair the other day and thinking “Ugh, I look so Jewish like this.” Like, I thought it with mild disgust—disgust that my hair accentuated my ethnic features and identified me as who I am.

    I went to a predominantly Jewish university, and even in environment where we were the majority, saying “I don’t think you look very Jewish,” to somebody was generally considered a compliment. In fact, when other Jews tell me I look Jewish, I’m usually insulted. Because even in our own community, what we are is very often synonymous with ugly. 

    So it’s no real shock to me that little girls of colour are internalising the idea that they are not pretty, or smart, or worthwhile. Because even if we say the opposite, it’s always implied that they are less desirable and less valuable than white girls (the only exception being the times when people fetishise and racialise ethnic women as “exotic”). Sadly, this isn’t even limited to the West. For example, if you look at Bollywood stars, you will rarely see a dark-skinned woman amongst their ranks, even though they make up a large percentage of the populace. That’s because light-coloured skin is seen as more beautiful (apparently, this dates back to the Persian invasion, although British rule certainly solidified it).

    I don’t really know how to stop this bias, but it’s awful that of all the things we could teach our children, we teach them to hate themselves.

    Coco Ballantyne and Zephyr Teachout

    I came across both of these names today, and I’m disappointed to report that neither of them are cabaret singers or writers of Amish erotica.
