Muggy and Gay

Jules; non-binary being; they/them/their or ey/em/eir. One time I made a pun about Karl Marx and the 1848 revolutions that was so terrible that it took five minutes to explain. It's my proudest achievement.

do you ever think about how fucked you’d be in medieval times with your weak eyesight, asthma and homosexual tendencies

Aaaaaaaallllllll the time.

Ever since the 4th grade science experiment where they turned us loose to find colored toothpicks in the grass but first they took my glasses. We were metaphorical birds and I metaphorical died.

That’s a shame.
If only you’d been taught to scream “I’m a raptor!!!” and leaped on another kid.

IF ONLY!

For real, I’d love to read some kind of paper about how people in Medieval times managed with different levels of eyesight.

Because it’s a spectrum, you know? People didn’t just go “Things get fuzzy when they’re more than a foot away from my face, I’m going to just die on the ground now.”

I’ve read several semi-historical books that take this stuff into account in interesting ways. There was a kid’s story about a mom who worked with her son to develop his sense of hearing for clues about his environment (maybe she’d grown up with the same issue?) There was a novel about Vikings, where being farsighted was considered fine if you spent most of your time at sea, and being nearsighted was less of a problem when you spent a large portion of your day weaving. There’s even a trope in fantasy novels where it’s expected that at least one guy in the group is going to be able to see farther than the others (“Legolas, what do your elf-eyes see?”)

I dunno, I think about the glasses thing a lot, because I have astigmatism. Life would be very different without visual aids (I’d miss a fuckton of detail around me) but I don’t think it would necessarily be “the end” people are envisioning.

i’d be fine even tho i’m gay and nearsighted and can’t breathe

BECAUSE I’D STAY IN A COVENT OR WITH BEGUINES MOTHERFUCKERS HA HA HA HA

seriously though: isolated communities of women dedicated to helping each other and to study and contemplation! pretty cushy. people Like You have always existed, and they’ve found ways to live and to thrive. the scholarship is out there! the history is out there!

luv it when fellow academics call the assertion that people like me exist “a fascinating thesis” and “wonderfully provocative,” it’s really cute when they do that

date a boy who’s an angel. not like when people use angel as a synonym for sweet but a literal angel with six wings and thirty eyes and three heads of different animals. date a boy who uses a flaming sword and has a murderous vengeance that burns even hotter.

haha, oh my god, like, JUST TO BE CLEAR ABOUT WHAT WE’RE LOOKING AT HERE, for anyone who might not know, jewish voice for peace is in fact a pro-palestine organization! it’s pro-BDS! it’s concerned about misuse of charges of antisemitism to stifle debate! it wants to end the occupation! like, re: the question in one of these comments, “is killing palestinians a hate crime?” ALMOST CERTAINLY WHOEVER POSTED THIS STATUS ON THE JVP FB PAGE WOULD SAY YES!!! 

so like, these are your quote-unquote “good jews,” is what i’m saying here, ok, these are the ones you fucking awful so-called progressives like to tokenize and pretend to understand and care about, but you still don’t fucking listen to them except when it’s convenient, except when they’re saying exactly what you want to hear; you still speak over them and accuse them of making shit up for attention and like, literally what the fuck do you WANT, what has to HAPPEN for you to realize that not everything is about israel, that we’re not always the oppressors, that in many (most!!!) circumstances we’re still an incredibly vulnerable marginalized group, like, literally what does it take?

here is what happened in kansas city yesterday: an admitted long-time antisemite shot up two jewish facilities on the eve of a major jewish holiday and then shouted “heil hitler” on camera as he was being arrested, and yet somehow it’s maybe not a hate crime, somehow this is about gun control and about mental illness and about the fact that white men are never demonized as terrorists the way POC are, it’s about gaza and it’s about the IDF and it’s about the dumbass idea that use of the term antisemitism is in fact itself oppressive, it’s about the evils of organized religion in general and it’s about EVERYTHING IN THE GODDAMN WORLD EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT, GUESS WHAT, A LOT OF PEOPLE STILL FUCKING HATE JEWS AND YOU ALL DON’T CARE, and just, like, what do you even fucking WANT? i don’t know. i really don’t.

after hearing about it through the submission to @angryasiangirlsunited, i checked out the trailer of Lucy and am even more disgusted. and so not surprised. whiteness is getting too old.

the upcoming movie lucy will feature the age-old racist narrative of pure white woman (scarlet johansson) being violated by scary, brown men. and the new white feminist trope of women gaining their power by violently eliminating brown men. who needs the white male savior when we now have white female saviors, taking it into their own hands to save their whiteness from all that non-whiteness. so radical.

My favorite part are the white feminists who are raving about this movie because “strong independent woman yaaaas!!”

i’m just wondering why there are herbs and fruits and vegetables written in a faded, creepy red on a prison-like wall in chinese.  are herbs and fruits and vegetables in chinese supposed to be part of some sort of scare tactics?  or am i missing something here?

HAHAHAHAHA

The above makes this so much better

OMG THIS MOVIE IS BULLSHIT OF THE HIGHEST ORDER THEY COULDN’T EVEN BOTHER TO GET SOMEONE TO WRITE ACCURATE SHIT IN CHINESE ON THE WALL THEY PROBABLY GOOGLED A TAKE-OUT MENU OR SOMETHING THIS IS WHAT A $20MIL BUDGET BUYS IN HOLLYWHITE EVERYONE! 

I just asked a family member to translate this. They came back with “Keep Clean. Apple, scallop & ginger, orange, tomato, grape”

movies are such bullshit i want to make them and get paid for it

oh my god the translation of the charactERSss
