“Genuine equality means not treating everyone the same, but attending equally to everyone’s different needs.”—
Eagleton, Terry, Why Marx Was Right (Yale University Press, 2011) p.5 (via fuckyeahdialectics)
And this is why I get pissed off when.. I talk about equality, and someone says “YOU WANT EVERYONE TO BE THE SAME”. No, that’s not how it works, and I’m sick of explaining it.
“It would be putting it mildly to say that the lesbian represents a threat to patriarchal protocol: Western civilization has for centuries been haunted by a fear of ‘women without men’—of women indifferent or resistant to male desire.”— Terry Castle, The Apparitional Lesbian (via spinsterprivilege)
how can someone wearing sunglasses and a buttoned up purple polo be so goddamn debonair
lmao I’ve seen this post cross my dash a dozen times, and until now I DIDN’T EVEN NOTICE HIS SHIRT.
that is the magic of being Idris Elba: you can show up for a media event wearing the dadliest of dad shirts and people will be so busy sighing over how debonair you are with Naomie Harris that they’ll miss your buttoned-up short sleeve purple polo shirt, oh my god.
In Photos: Portraits by photographer Jalani Morgan.
It’s always strange and a bit surreal to me when I look at a photograph of strangers and somehow manage to feel as though the person behind the lens has so aptly managed to capture the essence of those pictured. Perhaps it’s a bit of romanticism on my part, but I can’t help but feel that way when looking at the work of photographer Jalani Morgan. What may on the surface seem to be a simple portrait becomes an intensifying three-way relationship between the subject, the photographer and viewer. A two-dimensional image is brought to life and in a matter of seconds, upon gazing at Morgan’s portraits, I have no option but to feel a close connection to the unknown faces captured by his lens.
Jalani Morgan is a portrait, fine art and documentary photographer.
Born in Toronto, Ontario, and raised in Scarborough. He was influenced by his parents’ teachings of the African Diasporas and politics and through that is interjected into his art.
He produces work that investigates the representation from the African diaspora.
Currently he is studying at York University in Toronto obtaining his degree in Anthropology and African Studies.
it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.
