I had no idea until researching quotes for my blog posts that commonly understood quotes are credited to incorrect people, and many times incorrectly. Sometimes, not at all correctly. This particular quote is a person no one seems to knows but yet it is credited to him again and again- but that’s all anybody really knows.Did that deter me from using it? Hell no. It’s still a great quote
Thanks Dresden James, whoever the hell you are.
Like all great hoaxes, there are layers. The lie mixes with the truth. The layers are so many that perhaps there’s a bit of truth but which truth?
An ironic but a purposeful choice of quote. Yesterday I choose to be silent on social media as my part on International Women’s Day, a sort of, “Be careful what you wish for”. Every woman should be a feminist and want to celebrate women but it’s the not women voices that make a real difference. Stay with me.
It’s the people who are not women that make it all more possible for equality. If protests have taught me anything, it’s when the people who are not being oppressed see the ludicrousness that real change starts to happen. It’s not about being for one sex over another, it’s simply recognizing we are both people and its fucking stupid not to stand up for the rights of another human being.
Every wish I had for the day was exceeded when my brother wished my mother and a Happy International Women’s Day.
Happy belated International Women’s Day, bitches
Art is not what you see, but what you make others see
One of my favorite things is that despite the artist’s intention, every viewer takes their own interpretation to put their own experiences and thoughts on something to come up with their feeling that could very easily have nothing to do with the artist’s intention.
