My mistrust [of men] is not, as one might expect, primarily a result of the violent acts done on my body, nor the vicious humiliations done to my dignity. It is, instead, born of the multitude of mundane betrayals that mark my every relationship with a man—the casual rape joke, the use of a female slur, the careless demonization of the feminine in everyday conversation, the accusations of overreaction, the eye rolling and exasperated sighs in response to polite requests to please not use misogynist epithets in my presence.

nerd culture and gatekeeping authenticity is always just code for keeping out women and the underprivileged

There’s a great article about the hyper-white language of nerd culture by Mary Bucholtz, which was actually the first ~truly linguistic~ article I read and started me down this path from which there is NO RETURN. You can read it [here]

AHH, cynthia, this is so great! bookmarking for after work reading

The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd - The longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.
Fernando Pessoa, from The Book of Disquiet (via radiumangel)wor
