    Saving Face (2012), acid attacks on women in Pakistan

    Meanwhile, in America, feminists are complaining about how dress codes are oppressive.

    You idiots have never experienced oppression, and pray you never do, because this is what it looks like.

    As a South Asian American feminist, let me remind everyone that oppression is not a competition.

    Just because we fight one type of sexism doesn’t mean we don’t care about other instances of sexism that don’t affect us directly in our day to day lives.

    My heart goes out to this woman and the hundreds of other victims like her. I want to educate people about these kinds of incidents. I support organizations that help women like this.

    You may think that dress code issues are trivial, but they are related to a larger issue of women’s bodily autonomy, which affects women’s health and safety.

    So please, let’s try to bring awareness and bring about change instead of insulting entire groups of people because they are facing issues that are less scary than the one presented.

    oppression is not a competition

    thank you so much for this wording

    "…It never happened. Nothing ever happened. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest. The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite classical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis. I put it to you that the United States is without a doubt the greatest show on the road. Brutal, indifferent, scornful, and ruthless it may be but it is also very clever. As a salesman it is out on its own and its most saleable commodity is self-love. It’s a winner. Listen to all American presidents on television say the words ‘the American people’… It’s a scintillating stratagem. Language is actually employed to keep thought at bay. The words, ‘the American people,’ provides a truly voluptuous cushion of reassurance. You don’t need to think. Just lie back on the cushion. The cushion may be suffocating your intelligence and your critical faculties, but it’s very comfortable."

    A Case Study In Maternal Mental Illness →


    A few months after Cindy Wachenheim gave birth to the child she had long dreamed of, she became convinced that she had caused her son irrevocable brain damage. It was a certainty she couldn’t shake.

    Here’s one of my projects for my independent study in Art VII. This Google auto-fill study brings attention to sexism in our everyday lives. 


    Inspired by this post.
