tw: self abuse, anxiety

Wake up the next morning and try to process the previous night’s crippling anxiety only to find that, in writing about the events leading up to the point where the background hum turned into a deafening roar, you cannot return. That moment when your throat first tightened, when your heart raced to move oxygen your lungs couldn’t get, when your back went stiff… All of this describes the physical response, but the emotional content is hidden for your protection, a redacted page in your report, black lines obscuring the worst (and most important) part. You no longer have access to that content, cannot recall it, relying instead on the evidence: a bulging gap of missing memory and the long, angry pink lines on your belly where you dragged fingernails in the hope of causing enough damage to escape.

you’re gonna have those days, where it seems like time takes eternity. where it seems no one wants to be bothered with you. youre gonna have days where you cant stand the way your skin folds over your bones. You cant stand how you have the urge to cry. You feel like youre falling apart.

Invaluable freestyle trick tip from Shane Rouse in Skateboard! magazine, November 1988. So yeah, modern street skating is basically just freestyle…

I wish it was easy to buy freestyle boards now; I’d probably spend time learning how to do that. I’ve considered buying one of the kiddie micro completes (28”x7” or so) just to try it.

A quote from

young adult authors everywhere 

 

#she was also the hetero and she liked to look at the stars at night

#And she was an old soul who raised herself, also her eyes were deep pools

#And she didn’t wear makeup but it was okay because she had flawless skin anyway

It’s Pesach today, so I’ve been trying to think of Pesachdic things like struggles for freedom and new beginnings, but I can’t stop thinking about what happened in Kansas.

The sad thing is that I’m not even shocked that a White person carried out an act of racist violence against Jews. I think I kind of expect that anti-Jewish racism grows when there is an economic recession. I’m also not shocked that some people have made this all about Israel and oppression of Palestinians. I’m used to these assholes who don’t understand the difference between Jewish colonists in Palestine and Jews who aren’t colonists in places that aren’t Palestine (though I realise all non-indigenous people in Kansas are colonists). I’ve encountered plenty of White people who like to use Palestinian suffering to justify their racism against Jews.

The bit that did shock me was the US media reacted to it—that anyone could be unsure about the killer’s motives when he was yelling ‘Heil Hitler’. Because I’m always hearing that in the USA [Ashkenazi] Jews are White. So even though I expect the media to be shit when reporting on acts of racist violence against Muslims and Arabs and Desis, I’m surprised when they’re like this about Jews.

It’s a good reminder that we shouldn’t confuse access to White power with liberation. Jews might be given access to White power when it suits the interests of White supremacy (for example when they can use us to perpetuate oppression of Muslims and Arabs) but our Whiteness is always provisional and can be taken away as political and economic circumstances change. Instead of seeking to become White we should be fighting to dismantle Whiteness.

That last paragraph made me gasp and then spend an hour reflecting.

[Series of texts by @fatnutritionist, which read: “People are mad at me because they ‘work so hard’ to be fit or lose weight. They have told me this explicitly. It implies that they think my rejecting the values they subscribe to can somehow take away the fitness they’ve worked for. That is totally delusional. If you’ve worked hard for fitness, no amount of fat people rejecting stigma can take that away. So this is obviously not actually about fitness, at all. It’s about the other thing they ‘worked hard’ for: social status. They DO think, and they know, that the social status they have worked hard to earn, through ‘fitness,’ can be devalued. It can be devalued if the hierarchy that rewards them is crushed. Crushed by people rejecting stigma. We can’t take away your fitness or whatever weight you’ve lost. But we can devalue those things by destroying fat stigma. So they are afraid of us, and for good reason. If fat people aren’t stigmatized, then there is no more thin privilege. Remember always, fat people: People are afraid of you because you have an awesome power - to destroy the hierarchy. If they were not afraid of losing their place in the hierarchy, they would not come after you so viciously.” All tweets were accompanied by the hashtag, #notyourgoodfatty]

A quote from Quincy Jones (via uzowuru)

(Source: sunflobrwn)

"Tupac died at 25. If Malcolm X died at 25 he would have been a street hustler named Detroit Red. If Martin Luther King died at 25 he would’ve been known as a local baptist preacher. And if I had died at 25 I would’ve been known as a struggling musician. Only a sliver of my life’s potential."
