I feel happy and nostalgic and sad. I am in Ohio but my body doesn’t feel it the same. Always in between, I wonder if I’ll ever feel at home again.
i guess it’s easy to make fun of the concept of safe spaces when the whole goddamn world is a safe space for you
I hate Father’s Day.
a world where gaydar is not an excuse to be ignorant and stereotype but is instead a laser gun developed by years of gay labor that fires powerful radiation waves at the cishet opponent setting them on fire. flaming homosexuals? more like flaming heterosexuals. the cishets are on fire. this is anarchy.
*Alicia Keys voice* THAT CISHET IS ON FIIIIIIIIRE!
How come when someone catches an acute illness the number one thing they are told to do is rest, but when I sleep for 12+ hours because I am exhausted from being sick and in pain literally everyday I’m called lazy??
I am in Israel and I saw a drone yesterday.
there are places in my state where I wouldn’t dare wear anything Jew-y, etc.
people who are rude to cashiers or waiters or any customer service people are my least favourite people because all day these people run around doing things for everyone else and keep a smile on their faces despite dealing with jackasses and if you’re having a shitty day then don’t take it out on those who assist people for a living and deal with assholes on the daily and are still nice about it

The tumblr update that began today, May 29th, has broken tumblr savior. This means that, at least for now, your blacklisted posts WILL show up on your dash alongside the rest of the posts.
FOR ANYONE WITH TRIGGERS, PLEASE PLEASE BE CAREFUL ON YOUR DASH. I will be contacting the tumblr savior team and hopefully someone will find a fix, but until then, everyone please exercise caution and, if need be, get off tumblr for a while.
“Blood is thicker than water”, when used in the context of family over friends, is in fact a wildly incorrect bastardisation.
The true, full quote is “The blood of the covenant is thicker than the water of the womb,” and refers to relationships forged by choice holding deeper meaning than those of mere biology.
If you can’t differentiate between racist one-state solution pro-ethnic cleansing Zionism and the Zionism of the vast majority of world Jewry which merely supports the existence of a Jewish state - nobody needs you
there are many varients of a one-state- solution that are not racist and do NOT involve ethnic cleansing, but be that as it may, I still support differentiating between a 4000 year old faith, and a 150-ish year old Hebrew National Self-Determination movements. Note the plural, since Zionism is really just a massive umbrella term, which most goyim don’t get.
Yeah but you know who I mean tho, our delightful “send the Palestinians to Arab countries” friends
Also the OP said that they’re anti-Zionist, so I’m p sure this is just another sloganistic “Zionism is not Judaism” schtick.
yeah, shouting this slogan is really grand and all, but utterly useless and pointless if you don’t apply it — if you don’t weed out anti-Semitism from your anti-Zionism, and check your comrades when they do that shit too, then you shouting how you know that Jews =/= Zionists doesn’t really mean very much. It’s a shitty fig leaf.
ps, shouting down Jews who call you out on your anti-Semitism (yes, even if you didn’t mean it) is a piss-poor way to not be anti-Semitic
dont fucking shame people for not reading for pleasure
some people have concentration-issues
some people have other hobbies
and some people just dont fucking like reading alright
shut the fuck up and sit down
Now, HERE’S something I just fucking disagree with. This is not shaming, policing, -positivity, privilege, -culture, -ism, etc… This is about a fucking medium that some people choose not to partake in. How is this different from “don’t shame people for listening to shitty music” or “don’t shame people who don’t watch movies” or, like, “don’t shame people who don’t work through math textbooks front to back for fun”? Like, yeah, DO YOU, but if you don’t read, that’s your fuckin’ problem — you’re missing out — and I feel it’s 100% okay to give people (*who are capable of reading*) some shit for that. There is not a system of oppression against people who do not read for fun, so YOU shut the fuck up.
Yeah, except people assume that those who don’t read for pleasure are capable of reading, or at least reading at a comfortable level where the activity can actually be enjoyable. People assume that their learning-to-read experience was fair and pleasant.
When I was first learning to read in Kindergarten, I overheard my teacher and the other Kindergarten teacher talking about me during nap time when they thought everyone was asleep. They were saying that I was so slow that I would never be a good reader, that I would never read at my age level, and kind of laughing to each other about my lack of progress. That can be really fucking discouraging. (I was always treated unfairly in elementary school because I was maladjusted with 0 social skills from growing up with emotionally and mentally abusive and neglectful parents.)
But I am white, upper middle class, and allistic with no learning disability. While that’s a pretty harsh thing to say in front of a room full of 5 year olds, it was only one instance, one time, to someone with a lot of privilege in the school setting.
There is no system of oppression against people who don’t read for fun, but some people don’t because of an experience linked to racism, poverty and classism, or ableism.
I’m not saying that I disagree with you, because no, I totally do. This “don’t shame people for not reading for pleasure” thing is not something that should be taken seriously, but it is important to understand that sometimes people end up taking that position because of a system of oppression and/or some kind of disability. (like that concentration issue that the OP mentioned)
Racist Logic Applied to Other Life Situations
Never forget, if a racist says they didn’t mean it THAT way, “Nobody” is REALLY hurt by what the racist said. (via racismschool)
