persona-nongrata:

I think it’s pretty cringe-worthy that Marvel thinks they’re so progressive for gender swapping certain characters, like Thor, instead of simply creating strong female characters that are independent of pre-existing heroes.

It’s not progressive, it’s lazy and nothing…

Current Palestinian and Israeli fatalities since the Israel’s Operation Protective Edge. Via Ben White.
The narrative that insists “both sides are equally guilty” falls apart each time Israel leads an offensive on Palestinian population. Whether it is Operation Protective Edge or Operation Pillar of Defence or any other attack led by Israel on Palestinians, the glaring disparity of military power of that possessed by Israel and the barely-existing means held by Palestinians is more than obvious. The narrative should have never been about the culpability of “both sides” because that indicates a semblance of equality; of both sides maintaining the same amount of power but in this case, there is none. The liberal guilt complex which insists to see “both sides” attempts to create an illusion of balance between the settler and the invaded, the colonizer and the colonized.
One side has the Obama administration funding its security with $3 billion dollars annually up to 2018, the other is regularly threatened and faced with residential demolition, forced displacement, starvation, detention for both adults and children, collective punishment and a myriad of more fascist apartheid logic. One side can afford sitting at leisure on a hilltop in Sderot overlooking Gaza and rejoice as blasts hit Palestinians, the other flees for its life. You cannot strike a balance between Israel and Palestine; you cannot compare both because the comparison requires equilibrium of some sort. Here there is none.
One has to be incredibly naive or deliberately dishonest to implore that the world see “both sides.” And we all know which type between naive and dishonest is more in numbers.

Getting a haircut. What should I do?

Going in for a haircut tonight. If you have any suggestions, you’ve got two hours to send ‘em to me.

"I think that the most “successful” poets have always been ones who manage to navigate between arrogance and humility with ease. Arrogance often makes the poet, and it isn’t necessarily that the person herself is arrogant. It’s simply that she knows when to employ it to her advantage. I’m thinking back to when Walt Whitman made his dick bigger in a reprint of Leaves of Grass. Or when another poet came up to me at a bar and told me he bought a gold chain to “rebrand.” There is a vulnerability that manifests in both of these actions, but they are also statements of self-importance. These small moments and small statements frame a poet’s body of work; these engagements with the public sphere."
