Right before I left New Orleans for good, Janet and I decided we need to bake chocolate chip cookies & eat ice cream. And we also decided that we needed to ride the ferris wheel.

fauxcyborg:

the idea that just because sex is consensual that means it must be healthy is so narrow-minded and really neglects to take into effect how survivors of sexual assault, especially people who were assaulted as children, learn very early on and are groomed to BE hypersexual and to see her their self-worth as related to their her sexuality and this view of the self extends into adulthood.

Because today we live in a society in which spurious realities are manufactured by the media, by governments, by big corporations, by religious groups, political groups… So I ask, in my writing, What is real? Because unceasingly we are bombarded with pseudo-realities manufactured by very sophisticated people using very sophisticated electronic mechanisms. I do not distrust their motives; I distrust their power. They have a lot of it. And it is an astonishing power: that of creating whole universes, universes of the mind. Philip K. Dick (via thevalisisreal) Jul 12th • Notes: 41
Ableism is connected to all of our struggles because it undergirds notions of whose bodies are considered valuable, desirable and disposable. Mia Mingus, “Changing the Framework: Disability Justice” (via disabilityhistory) Jul 12th • Notes: 5846

Anonymous said: I see you call yourself queer but I'm confused on how that is because I've only seen you date men on here. Do you date women too or what is like the definition of queer?

browngirlinterrupted:

1-when was the last time I openly stated being queer that you are referring to? 2-what does a queer couple look like? Define “man”? Define “women”? Do you know of any other genders? Do you know what any of my partners that you say you’ve “seen” identify as? I think you’re looking for a lot of boxes to be checked off to decipher my sexuality and what you think queer is supposed to mean based on some definition you’ve been fed your whole life and I really don’t think I need to validate my queerness to someone who won’t even show me their face. Try again

THIS.

The Summer of Gods is a short film about a troubled girl named Lili who unites with her Afro-Brazilian religious ancestry on a summer visit with family to their ancestral village in rural Brazil. Soon after her arrival, she encounters Orishas (African gods) who join with her grandmother to help her find peace with a gift
that has previously vexed her. The film is set in the Northeast of Brazil where Afro-Brazilian religious traditions remain strong. Lili’s Grandma is a well revered local priestess who honors the Orishas. Lili is blessed by the goddesses as well. To preserve tradition, they lead her on a mystical adventure through a nearby forest which symbolizes her initiation into the tradition.

THE FUTURE WEIRD: remote control
Wednesday 26th MARCH 2014 @8PM, Spectacle Theater 

The Future Weird is back with REMOTE CONTROL, an evening of films concerning witches & bitches – women who see, take, and sell things they cannot grasp. Whether they wield powers to possess, or are somehow controlled, the technologies these films document are deployed without regard for reciprocity or consent. 

REMOTE CONTROL is both the loss of individual agency, and the thrilling ability to inhabit another’s body. Presenting weird clips alongside shorts by Zina Saro Wiwa, Elaine Castillo, Fyzal Boulifa, and the U.S. Premiere of TOUCH by Shola Amoo, we’re talking possession, surveillance, “brain to brain interface”, and the sinister compulsion to repurpose the humanoid. Join us on Wednesday 26th March @8PM as we contemplate the human of use of human beings.

More details & RSVP via the Facebook event page 

The Future Weird is a screening series dedicated to sci-fi/experimental/weird film by black, African & Third World directors created by Derica Shields & Megan Eardley. Find details of previous programs and follow us here & here
