Channelling Sporty Spice. Also duckface for some reason.

Casual racism is depicting ancient Egyptians as white people.


I’m about to get all emotional and sappy

One of my clients just called me up and told me that she’d watched my video on disability and really liked it.

Worth it just for that ahh :) 

If coffee is a bean, why isn’t it a vegetable?

Guys, hey, guys. Do you remember that time that Coulson called Natasha and she ended up forming the Avengers?  Remember how she did that by digging up Bruce Banner and introducing Steve to him then was the voice of reason when Tony and Steve were bickering and then how she brought Clint back from being mind controlled so that they can be a team? Remember that? Remember how the Black Widow out smarted a god? Remember that time she kept her shit together when the Hulk attacked her, even though she was really scared? Remember when she knocked an alien off his flying scooter and igured out how to drive it despite it being extrateresstrial tech, then got her ass up to the top of Stark Tower, found Loki’s staff and saved the world from being invaded by turning off the machine?

Remember how she was the central character of the whole freaking movie?

Anyone else remember that? I sure do. 

Damn straight. She was the key to the whole damn thing.

yeah, remember when she got her own movie as she clearly deserved?

ugh studio execs suck.


I’m going to bed because I’ve forgotten how to communicate with people and I’m stressed out

Facebook is hilarious today

Nikki is so perf: “David Cameron’s cabinet reshuffle is like re-arranging deckchairs on the titanic.” I love it so much.



laughs because the new UK equality minister is openly homophobic

White people need to accept that, no matter how many anti-racist demos they’ve marched on, they inevitably make assumptions, however subconscious, which are influenced by a racist society and which help to form their views and opinions. To refute this is to be in complete denial. But this is not a blame game. Institutional racism is now an accepted term, but it’s not the inanimate “institutions” which are racist; it’s their staff who perpetuate the overall inequalities by their actions. The acknowledgement of personal racism is simply a prerequisite before anyone can begin to eradicate its pernicious effects.

being a student is basically finding new and inventive ways of putting whatever food you have left in the cupboard together in the early hours of the morning


I’ve lost followers from liveblogging my boy troubles I think.






I mean, he’s an old German guy.  It made a lot of sense to me that someone would be all ‘nah’ to Loki’s crazy authoritarianism, and to me this scene isn’t connected to any sense of Americer ferk yerrr. 

I mean until Captain America came in and started being all weird and shit but I like this specific old dude

Well sure.  Except the character isn’t a real person and doesn’t exist outside of the wholeness of the film.  It’s not a real person; they chose to cast a German guy, it’s set in the US, it’s still a Hollywood movie, and Captain America still saves the Nice German Guy who doesn’t want to be subjugated by the Nasty Inherently Evil Guy.

Yes, you are right, I made the mistake ofr taking the scene at face value and arguing in the context of the scene rather than in the context of the scene as a constructed thingy.


Then why have this scene take place in Germany at all?  Does this scene only exist so that Captain America can compare Loki to Hitler, or does it have other reasons for taking place in that setting?

Because American Exceptionalism and every new thing created by Hollywood and promoted by the mainstream US capitalist hegemon has to represent the US as saviours/policemen/protectors of the rest of the world.  It legitimises their real world militarism to “defend democracy” and so on and so on.



However do you cope with that most traumatic of oppressions

The incredibly monstrous male sex drive

It must be so hard for you

Society definitely does not cater to your sex drive, ever

Black female rappers/r&b singers have done more for me in terms of sexuality/sexual expression than mainstream feminism ever could. Listen intimately to the lyrics of this song, Ms. Howard ain’t playing about her sexual affirmations and lifestyle. The opening lines set the tone for the entire song:

Let me lay it on the line
I got a little freakiness inside
And you know that the man
Has got to deal with it
I don’t care what they say
I’m not about to pay nobody’s way
‘Cause it’s all about the dog in me

Do you hear that? I mean, do you REALLY see what she’s saying? She’s basically saying idgaf about what you think about my sexual expressions, you will fucking DEAL WITH IT. Why? Because the only person it matters to is me, it is “ALL ABOUT (the dog in) ME”. Further confirmed in the last two lines of the chorus:

I got a freaky secret, everybody sing
‘cause we don’t give a damn about a thing

Also love how towards the end of the song, the male voice in the background sings:

One to the two, to the two, to the three
Adina, do you want to get freaky with me?

It’s the fact that he is asking her if she would like to ‘get freaky’ with him, and not demanding that she does, further reinstating that regardless of whatever ‘freakiness’ is being discussed, it all ultimately rests and centers around the issue of consent, which is where the song ends.


Bikini kill, who? 


im sayin, adina,

im sayin.





Worst cabinet reshuffle ever?


  • Fewer women in the cabinet than this time yesterday
  • First cabinet in 15 years that lacks a non-white cabinet minister
  • Jeremy Hunt, new health secretary, is pro-homeopathy, anti-abortion, called for the NHS to be dismantles in 2009 and is an all-round shit politician (I’m assuming you all know about Leveson and Murdoch etc etc)
  • Maria Miller, new culture secretary and minister for women and equality, is a pretty terrible choice for ‘equality’, voting against gay adoption and in favour of  homophobia, racial hatred and prejudice being “freedom of speech” 
  • New environmental secretary Owen Paterson opposes renewable energy in favour of shale oil and has been backed by former Chancellor Lord Lawson, who the BBC describes as “a well known climate change sceptic”

I’m a very angry Brit right now and David Cameron is a complete and utter arse.

  • Two gay men lost their positions (Blunt and Herbert).

But yay I have an actual almost date type thing with the guy who’s house I was gonna go to and meet his mum.

I think I rambled on enough about just how awkward I am in front of people’s parents, so he’s suggested we just go out for another drink instead. 

Yay I much prefer drinking to meeting parents. 

This time I’ll just try not to get as drunk as last time because as I recall he wasn’t that bad and I was red-in-the-face drunk and he stuffed £20 down my bra and put me in a taxi oh dear.
