I really wish I had the courage to stomp on peoples throats, and the body strength.
Man- SUCK MY DICK!

If you’ve ever woken in a cold sweat thanks to a Tumblr-induced nightmare, chances are you’ve seen some of Colin Raff’s GIFs. These things are scary awesome. His animations, which often feature violent images like a man shoving a round object through his head, are surreal and unnerving.
“It’s a frugal showcase for immoderate jigglings.”

This is the Citarum River, in Indonesia, possibly the most polluted river in the world, due to mankind’s greed and insensibility regarding environment. Once one of the most beautiful waters in Asia, now the Citarumis a graveyard of debris, where locals, who can no longer fish, risk their lives scavenging for bottles and anything else they might sell for a small profit.
Renata Selacl on the hysteric’s narcissitic need to be someone through love:
The hysteric’s question in regard to love is not “Do I love him?” but “Does he love me?” The narcissism of the hysteric subject touches the core of the subject’s being. The hysteric’s narcissism is linked to her attempt for certainty: what she seeks is the Other that would grant her the identity. The appeals to the Other to give her answers as of who she is, what value she has, what object she is, are all attempts to over- come the constitutive split that marks the subject as the speaking being. The hysteric searches for the signifier that would give her unity, wholeness: “In the meantime, she becomes devoted to the cult of Woman … in the hope that this signifier will someday appear.”
I’m not 21. I’m almost 25. But I WAS 21 once. And I did, indeed, get my tubes tied at that age. Here’s how you, too, can convince the doctor to help you stay childfree by having a tubal ligation.

In this collection, Arab and Arab American feminists enlist their intimate experiences to challenge simplistic and long-held assumptions about gender, sexuality, and commitments to feminism and justice-centered struggles. Contributors hail from multiple geographical sites, spiritualities, occupations, sexualities, class backgrounds, and generations. Poets, creative writers, artists, scholars, and activists employ a mix of genres to express feminist issues and highlight how Arab and Arab American feminist perspectives simultaneously inhabit multiple, overlapping, and intersecting spaces: within families and communities; in anticolonial and antiracist struggles; in debates over spirituality and the divine; within radical, feminist, and queer spaces; in academia and on the street; and between each other.
Contributors explore themes as diverse as the intersections between gender, sexuality, Orientalism, racism, Islamophobia, and Zionism, and the restoration of Arab Jews to Arab American histories. This book asks how members of diasporic communities navigate their sense of belonging when the country in which they live wages wars in the lands of their ancestors. Arab and Arab American Feminisms opens up new possibilities for placing grounded Arab and Arab American feminist perspectives at the center of gender studies, Middle East studies, American studies, and ethnic studies.
This just won the Arab American Book Prize for Non-Fiction. It’s an excellent book and if you are interested at all in this area, you should read it.
