THIS EXPLAINS ME PERFECTLY. THANK YOU.
Mom says that I have my own special kind of language.
curious to see how many of you who relate to this become engineers of some sort…
Then why I’m not an engineer? D’:
my life is a lie!
Just pointing out that not everyone who thinks like this is automatically gifted in STEM fields. Some of us are “useless” arts majors, and this way of thinking is just as relevant in those fields as well.
Frida’s last public appearance, on July 2, 1954, at a rally protesting C.I.A. involvement in Guatemala. Diego is behind her. Juan O’Gorman to her right.
“What is interesting, is that the Frida Kahlo venerated by American feminists is a very different Frida Kahlo to the one people learn about in Mexico, in the Chicano community. In her country, she is recognized as an important artist and a key figure in revolutionary politics of early 20th century Mexico. Her communist affiliations are made very clear. Her relationship with Trotsky is underscored. All her political activities with Diego Rivera are constantly emphasized. The connection between her art and her politics is always made. When Chicana artists became interested in Frida Kahlo in the ‘70s and started organizing homages, they made the connection between her artistic project and theirs because they too were searching for an aesthetic compliment to a political view that was radical and emancipatory. But when the Euro-American feminists latch onto Frida Kahlo in the early ‘80s and when the American mainstream caught on to her, she was transformed into a figure of suffering. I am very critical of that form of appropriation.”

(she darkened her eyebrows and the hair on her upper lip specifically to challenge eurocentric standards of beauty aka euro-american/white standards of beauty as someone as a white passing poc like thats challenging whiteness im so not here for western feminists tryna jump on her when really she was not here for y’all)
A man admittedly followed and killed an innocent teenager, and was declared not guilty.
States are passing laws allowing guns in public schools.
Women are losing their reproductive rights at an increasingly alarming rate.
Riots are tearing through the streets in cities all over the world.
College tuition keeps rising, sending a generation into debt as soon as they are entering the adult world.
Education funds keep getting slashed.
Privacy no longer exists.
Corporations now have the same rights as people, and the funds to actually protect them.
Through loopholes, many U.S. Corporations pay a lower tax rate than middle class families.
States are now passing more voter ID laws and similar laws that only affect the lower class.
The corporate giant, Monsanto, has pretty much purchased and bribed its way into every grocery product on the shelf, resulting in food becoming less and less like, well, food. There are reasons Cancer rates are getting worse.
Likewise, Monsanto is making sure small American farmers are ran out of business. Also, their constant pesticide use is killing bees and other insects, causing dire environmental issues.
The mass media is more concerned with pop culture and trends, than the real issues the world is facing.
Human population is ever growing, and at rapid rates. It can’t just continue this way.
We have put so much trash in giant landfills all over our world and in our oceans. We are killing our planet.
By planet you mean we are killing ourselves.
Can we also pay attention to the fact that there aren’t just political problems going on???
I mean, seriously, I have been trying to tell everyone, BUT NO ONE IS EVEN REBLOGGING THE ARTICLES THAT COULD SAVE A LIFE
While all this is happening, the Pacific Ocean is being contaminated by not just trash, but Radiation.
There was a leak in the Fukushima power plant that has now poisoned the entire Pacific Ocean.
Some think that oh, maybe it will go away with time. Sure, it will, in about 16 million years. Yes, you read that right. Due to the long half life of iodine-129, the whole ecosystem of the Pacific Coast will be contaminated pretty much forever.
Here is the radiation levels in the ocean.
Everyone needs to wake up.
The government needs to be set straight. They were hiding this information so that people don’t panic. Well, now everyone’s gonna die and not know why.
Shit is going down, and we need to make sure EVERYONE knows EVERYTHING that is happening in this place we call home.
Holy fucking shit
fukushima is one of the scariest things going on and it’s literally getting less attention than that real houswives couple who are going to prison.
whoa whoa whoa not cool guys read pls
I feel like y’all should actually bother to find out what iodine I-129 really is. It’s basically harmless, however extreme/extended exposure can affect the thyroid. It’s biological half-life is only 100 days, so within a few months you’ll be fine again. All you really need to do is wash your produce and make sure you know where your meat is coming from and YOU’LL BE FINE. The media never covered this because it would just cause an unnecessary panic.
Iodine I-129 isn’t the concern. The concern is the greater amounts of Strontium I-90 and Tritium that are flushing out into the Pacific faster than even the Iodine I-129. Strontium I-90’s half life is 28.8 years and Tritiums is 12.32 years. Strontium I-90 is a bone seeking isotope which ill cause damage all the way from soft tissue to bone and bone marrow. The tritium is a hydrogen based isotope, which topically wouldn’t be a big issue, BUT IT’S DUMPED IN THE OCEAN, which means ingestion WILL occur and considering that the Isotopes are causing cancerous tumors in animals from Alaska all the way to Chile, I would say there IS a necessary panic.
AmeriKKK is corrupted
a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.
