apparently there was someone on campus last week protesting against Jews and gays.

I’m not sure what they were protesting. Our control of academia? Our continued existence despite their best efforts? Our stunning good looks?

"oh how delightful
don’t mind if i do
help myself to a cup of this broken heart stew
i’m alarmingly hungry i realize
and I am pulled to the pleasant aroma and the bloody red hue.
cooked from scratch from a base still fast beating and blue,
stir in nursery rhymes, beets, and bouillon cubes,
add potatoes and eggplants,
and slowly infuse with a bag of red wine,
bits of me, and of you.
and i’m sure this is healthy, as i am sure as it’s true
that roses are red, and violets are violet
as i sit here alone at this table for two,
scribbling words to myself, and conversing with food.
as i sit here alone at this table for two,
realizing that perhaps you’re not actually coming
you’re not coming
and maybe tonight, i’ll have to sleep alone again, even though i’d much rather be held
and then maybe, we only fall in love to have something to do
but what a lonely, what a tasteless and bitter excuse,
when you’re starving to death,
even fingers will do.
cutting out all our organs and limbs to make fuel
for a ship that’s set sail with a wiry crew.
and the paperboy’s there,
and the butcher,
and you.
And we never get lost in your vessel of glue,
your banana peel vinyl, and driftwood and news,
tossing violently in your sleep,
as you move through this simmering ocean
of broken heart stew."

"The inferiority of women is man-made."

American author, activist, and lecturer Helen Keller, June 11, 1916 (via womenaresociety)

Reminder that Helen Keller was a bad ass, and the fact that people only remember her as an “inspirational” child is really annoying.
