This weekend I hung out with one of my bffs from highschool and talked shit about someone and it was actually really refreshing and I went to a party and had a pretty good time, met a girl who I went to 1st grade with and it was really sweet. Ended up taking the commuter rail home with that same girl and had a nice conversation and I want to hang out with her more because she lives in Worc too but I dunno if that’d be weird?? Idk I think I might ask anyways because she mentioned hating Worc and not really having anything to do here and I’m kind of in the same boat so it’d be rad to make it less sucky together but FRIENDS HOW DO YOU MAKE THEM

When it comes to objectification, this is a great example of why comparing male strip clubs to Hooters is a “false equivalent.”

"One of the most sinister things about normalized racism is you don’t have to have bad intentions to be racist, you just have to remain ignorant."

"

'Tell me what happens the first time you see a woman naked.'

'The first time you see a woman naked will not be like you imagined. There will be no love, no trust, no intimacy. You won’t even be in the same room as her.

You won’t get to smile as she undresses you and you undress her. You won’t get to calm her nerves with nerves of your own. You won’t get to kiss her, feeling her lips and the edge of her tongue. You won’t get to brush your fingers over the lace of her bra or count her ribs or feel her heartbeat.

The first time you see a woman naked you will be sitting in front of a computer screen watching someone play at intimacy and perform at sex. She will contort her body to please everyone in the room but her. You will watch this woman who is not a woman, pixelated and filtered and customized. She will come ready-made, like an order at a restaurant. The man on the screen will be bigger than you, rougher than you. He will teach you how to talk to her. He will teach you where to put your hands and he will teach you what you’re supposed to like. He will teach you to take what is yours.

You must unlearn this. You must unlearn this twisted sense of love. You must unlearn the definition of pleasure and intimacy you are being taught. Kill this idea of love, this idea of entitlement, this way of scarring one another.’

men and womens value, and the indescribable importance of intimacy

Dahomey’s Warrior Women

Speaking of West Africa, the Dahomey Warrior Women involves a fascinating history that spans nearly 200 years. It was during this time that the elite squad of female warriors fought and died for the border rights and inter-tribal issues in the ancient kingdom of Dahomey.
These women, who outranked their male counterparts, were given far more privileges, including the ability to  come and go from the palaces as they pleased (unlike the men). They were so revered for their warrior prowess, The Smithsonian explains, that men were taught to keep their distance:
“Recruiting women into the Dahomean army was not especially difficult, despite the requirement to climb thorn hedges and risk life and limb in battle. Most West African women lived lives of forced drudgery. Gezo’s female troops lived in his compound and were kept well supplied with tobacco, alcohol and slaves – as many as 50 to each warrior, according to the noted traveler Sir Richard Burton, who visited Dahomey in the 1860s. And “when amazons walked out of the palace,” notes Alpern, “they were preceded by a slave girl carrying a bell. The sound told every male to get out of their path, retire a certain distance, and look the other way.” To even touch these women meant death.”
Yet as colonialist ambitions grew in the region, the Dahomey female warriors eventually grew sparse. Fierce combat missions to crush the independent kingdom eventually succeeded, and in the 1940s, it is said that the last of the female warriors died.

I’m missing Dakar so badly recently.

What I wouldn’t give to eat some of Oumy’s fried eggs (best in the world) or some ceebu jen or some of that sheep intestine stew my host mother made or yassa or some bouye juice

uggghhh I know I complained of how sick I was but I would gladly suffer through the yellow diarrhea if I could just eat any of those things right now
