Take my water
Burn my olive trees
Destroy my house
Take my job
Steal my land
Imprison my father
Kill my mother
Bomb my country
Starve us all
Humiliate us all

How to carry your marigold garlands

exgynocraticgrrl:

They talk about pornography as a form of fantasy. They actually talk about prostitution as if it were an exercise in fantasy. And it is a part of the pornographers’ effort to hide what they really do in real life, to encourage the use of the word fantasy in place of actual behaviors that really happen, in the real world.

A fantasy is something that happens in your head. It doesn’t go past your head. Once you have somebody acting out whatever that scenario might be in your head, it is an act in the world, it is real. It is real behavior with real consequences to real people.

And so it has been a very brilliant part of the pornographers’ propaganda campaign to protect pornography to characterize the industry as an industry of fantasy…It has nothing whatsoever to do with fantasy, it has to do with a human being actually having happen to them what we see as happen[ing] to them.

And I think it’s just the most extraordinary insult to the human conscience to continue to characterize these real acts to real people as if they only exist in the head of the male consumer. And what that means is his head, his psychology, is more important than her life.

calling a man a “pig” is literally dehumanising how do some people not think there’s anything wrong with that how

Because chicks, fillies, birds and bitches never get dehumanised. Those vixens always get away with this kind of shit. Especially the heifers, they’re the worst. What cows.

Don’t you dare love me

I’d rather you didn’t love me

» What happens when the U.S. shoots down an airliner ...

fuckyeahmarxismleninism:

Remember the Iranian airliner?

On July 3, 1988, the USS Vincennes launched a surface-to-air missile at an Iranian civilian airliner. It was on a scheduled commercial flight from Bandar-Abbas to Dubai. The attack resulted in the deaths of 290 passengers and crew members.

The U.S. proclaimed the whole thing was an “error” by the crew of the Vincennes. But further investigation found no fault and resulted in no punishment. The incident was dismissed and forgotten.”
