Cynical optimist. Uppity bitch. Rump shaker. Money maker. Enigma extraordinaire. Penguin enthusiast. Food evangelist. Lipstick extremist. Titty connoisseur. Motorboat champion. Easily distracted. Not easily impressed. Certified potty mouth. Unapologetically vulgar. Classy as fuck.I'm here to read and have fun. You're more than welcome to be a part of that if you'd like. But please be aware that I'm unavailable for anything more than friendly chat. Camp out in my friend zone at your own risk...just make sure you're good at rationing your resources. Seriously...if you wanna be my friend just be my friend. But that 'friend with ulterior motives' bullshit is for the birds. If you say what you mean and mean what you say, then you're fine in my book (with exceptions, of course).*Disclaimer: Whatever my current avatar may be is NOT me. It's NEVER me. Most likely it's some gorgeous girl with amazing hair, or Beyoncé in a pair of chaps and a sexy white bodysuit wrangling a conspicuous looking penguin. It may even be a pair of flashy panties. Whatever the case may be, the avatar most definitely is not me.*
Perhaps the different interpretations are reflected in the connecting A vs O ;) Touché.
I have slightly different thoughts about the term 'islamophobia', which in my mind is mostly often used to silence people who are critical of islamism (another ism), although there sure will be people who are phobic towards Islam.Anyway, I agree that things need to change. But they need to change for the better. What I hear from universities and colleges in the US, but also in Europe, I'm not sure that what the loudest folks there have in mind is really the way forward. I found the Yale/Halloween story quite baffling. What I read in that email and what I heard the college's master say in his response to a crowd of students didn't sound very offensive to me (and yes, I'm a privileged guy). That's just one of the stories of course, so perhaps I got it all wrong. But in Europe we have similar stories where progressive evolves into regressive. I just hope I'm wrong.About the OP: the "fog of fascism" is as dramatic and over the top as what this professor is accusing the students of (and Bolshevism would probably be a better metaphor anyway). I'm not in total agreement of protesting just to demand that professors get fired (unless it's warranted). I'll admit to that much.But these seemingly ragtag protests are most likely gonna be the major catalysts for change in these institutions. There can be a middle ground, but I think these protests are happening because the powers that be aren't willing to approach said middle ground until certain matters gain national attention.These things don't have to reach this point, but when the climate of your student body goes ignored for so long (or the climate of any institution), this is what happens. In regards to Islamaphobia, I interpret it as those who judge and discriminate and are generally fear mongerish against those who identify with the nation of Islam.
Have you created a group ?Share it here and tell us a little bit about it.
As Gav continues to work on site updates, lagging and other general loading problems are to be expected.It should all be sorted once Gav is done tinkering with the site (although he's never really done tinkering, but you know what I mean).If the issues extend beyond that, then other issues are likely to be explored.Thanks for your continued patience. You guys are the best!
Yikes!Going forward, if anyone has any personal concerns that have nothing to do with the functionality of the Groups feature, address them via PM.Please and thank you.
I can't believe these students have the unmitigated gall to attempt to change historically fucked up systems!These students' fear is real, and has been for quite some time now.Sure, there will be opportunists at every turn, but that in no way undermines their attempts to accomplish what so obviously needs to be accomplished.Racism, Islamaphobia, and all of these other terrible isms and phobias all exist at an institutional level, and it warms my black-ass heart to see so many students across so many college campuses collectively taking a stand against it, even if they're doing it on behalf of a college or university that isn't their own.
Saw this a while ago and thought it was hilarious. https://www.youtube.com/embed/7Q6bt6ktvh4
It's Evie's birthday, fuck yeah!! http://data.whicdn.com/images/60357439/large.gif
Please excuse me for being extremely dense, but how does one get to it? Some kinks are still being worked out, but for now you can access the groups from the home page. The 'Group' tab will be to the top left, among a few other tabs (forum, chat, store).Or you can just type lushstories.com/groups into your browser.
I feel them in my chest, Clawing their way through my throat Until they finally reach the tip of my tongue And that's where they stay. Don't ask me what they are Let me show you. Take the kisses from my lips And wrap them around you Let them sip from your cup Until it runs dry. The pounding in your ears Is the song of my soul. You won't hear it in whispered words, But in every gasp...
