“ With The Fall and Streetcar I feel that if I died in September then I could look down from up there feeling I had accomplished what I wanted to accomplish.” - Gillian Anderson [x]
7 Days of Garbage by Gregg Segal features Americans laying in a week’s worth of their own garbage.
“Women are more likely to be attracted to personality and men are more likely to be attracted to physical appearance.”
Woah maybe that’s because we teach women to see men as people and we teach men to see women as objects.
Ding ding ding ding ding.
photos by richard harrington in inukjuak (eastern canadian arctic) of the padleimut tribe. they were taken in 1947, just as the canadian government was abandoning its arctic policy of benign neglect, to use a nixonian phrase, and shifting to one of largely forced settlement and relocation.

This country is such a fucking joke. Did you know that if we were to divide the income in this country fairly it would be about 300,000 per person. That’s annually. You could give each person in this country 100,000 and still have enough to invest in infrastructure and research. Instead we have people who don’t have water, don’t have their basic human rights fulfilled, because they don’t have enough to pay a bill.Capitalism is inhumane.
That first drawing is Ian Brady, moors murderer. Just wondering how many people reblogging this are aware?
Wowow. She looks like a greek statue.
(Also, a very unusual pose for a woman. She’s nude but it’s presented as powerful, rather than sexualized. Good job, ESPN Magazine.)
Words I’ve said in places that felt safer to say them- a project on living post-traumatically with panic attacks.
"It is no coincidence then that the Canadian government, reflecting its own roots in settler-colonialism, fervently declares support for Israel. Prime Minister Harper pronounced Canada “Israel’s best friend” and has vowed to support Israel “whatever the cost.” Canada was the first country — even before Israel — to boycott and vilify the government of Hamas in 2006. Canada has also strengthened economic ties with Israel; under the Canada-Israel Free Trade Agreement, bilateral trade has more than tripled. This has further entwined Canada in the economic normalization of the Israeli occupation. In addition, the two states have signed the Canada-Israel Public Security Partnership, to supposedly ward off “common threats” to “border security, illegal immigration, and terrorist financing.” In the climate of the War on Terror, this is a pretext to intensify torture, racial and religious profiling, incarcerations, deportations and surveillance.
As Canada deepens its relationship with Israel, Indigenous communities from Turtle Island and Palestine have strengthened their alliances.Former political prisoner from the Ardoch Algonquin First Nation, Robert Lovelace, has powerfully written: “We recognize that the people of Palestine have been subjected to colonization in the same way that Indigenous people here have lost their relationship with the land. Gaza has become an open-air prison for 1.4 million people. It is the largest ‘Reserve’ in the world.” A statement by Palestinians in Solidarity with Idle No More and Indigenous Rights reads: “As Palestinians, who struggle against settler colonialism, occupation and apartheid in our homeland and for the right of Palestinian refugees — the majority of our people — to return to our homeland, we stand in solidarity with the Idle No More movement of Indigenous peoples and its call for justice, dignity, decolonization and protection of the land, waters and resources.”"
