  To educate the masses politically does not mean, cannot mean, making a political speech. What it means is to try, relentlessly and passionately, to teach the masses that everything depends on them; that if we stagnate it is their responsibility, and that if we go forward it is due to them too, that there is no such thing as a demiurge, that there is no famous man who will take the responsibility for everything, but that the demiurge is the people themselves and the magic hands are finally only the hands of the people.

  "Children are the most desirable opponents at Scrabble," declares Scorpio author Fran Lebowitz, "as they are both easy to beat and fun to cheat." I don’t wholeheartedly endorse that advice for you in the coming days, Scorpio. But would you consider a milder version of it? Let’s propose, instead, that you simply seek easy victories to boost your confidence and hone your skills. By this time next week, if all goes well, you will be ready to take on more ambitious challenges.
— Small victories for the self.

I grew up listening to the sounds of gun shots in my music. 


LOL why did I leave my comfort zone again?


There are some things about myself that I just can’t seem to undo. Like waking up late. It’s really hard for me not to wake up late unless I’m traveling. I hate traveling if I can’t sleep, so I always take early flights or trips. I can sleep deeply for really short periods of time. Like 5 minutes even. Anyway goodnight.


Sit back and watch my hairline recede.

What do people mean when they say “intersectionality?”



This is a serious question. I could search for the definition online but I want to read people’s answers. Maybe I’ll be pointed in a better direction.

basically has to do with one’s race,class and gender.

So, from what I’ve gathered… it involves incorporating identity constructs (I.e. Race, class, gender) into pre-existing discourse? Is the explosion (Elle) of those constructs the only end or just one?
