"Philosopher Joanna Macy writes of the oblivion we manufacture for ourselves to keep us from looking environmental problems straight in the eye. She quotes R. J. Clifton, a psychologist studying human response to catastrophe: “Suppression of our natural responses to disaster is part of the disease of our time. The refusal to acknowledge these responses causes a dangerous splitting. It divorces our mental calculations from our intuitive, emotional, and biological embeddedness in the matrix of life. That split allows us passively to acquiesce in the preparations for our own demise.”"

'Dear White Women Cheering Iranian Women'
feministgiant.com/p/essay-dear
Excellent piece by the wonderful Mona Eltahawy

Some TL:DR quotes:
"This isn’t a “whose flavour of patriarchy is worse” letter. This is a “fuck the patriarchy everywhere” grenade that I gift to you. This is not The Handmaid’s Tale, it’s real life. This is a wake the fuck up because clearly you’ve been drifting, cruising on the delusions that your whiteness will save you from white supremacist patriarchy."

"The patriarchy atop theocracy melange of Iran’s “morality police” is easier to see because it is so visibly expressed in enforced hijab. But what is the enforced pregnancy of the Christian zealots in the U.S. but a melange of patriarchy built atop theocracy right here?"

"Fuck theocracy everywhere.

Fuck fascism everywhere.

Fuck the patriarchy in every time zone and every universe.

Burn. Shit. Down."

Friendly reminder that Hollywood often uses stunt bodies for nude scene

Like they will literally cast the perfect ass, and then have that ass on screen as a stand in for someone who already probably has a pretty good ass

So, don’t ever compare yourself to any of that

Compare yourself to your friend group instead

Rise to the top of those losers, one ass at a time

The clAP OF YOUR CHEEKS SHALL GIVR RISE TO A NEW AGE

Als Einstein so treffend formulierte: „Die Definition von Wahnsinn ist, immer wieder das Gleiche zu tun und andere Ergebnisse zu erwarten.“

If someone generally and genuinely thinks they’re awesome, that’s not based on an objective standard but it’s also inconsequential in the grand scheme of things. It’s confidence for the self. It’s motivating for the self. It might annoy you hearing someone hype themselves or back themselves… but why?

This goes back to what I said a while ago: you cannot love yourself too much in a world that insists you make yourself as small as possible.
