HANG WITH ME

I am part of this feminist listserv (LISTSERV) slash community called WAM (women, action, and the media) and tomorrow I will be the guest speaker for WAMENTORING, which is, basically: come hang out, drink wine, and I shall attempt to impart knowledge jewels about feminism in the cultural criticism SPHERE. It is $5 because they need to pay for the wine and renting the space but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Come through if you want! I don’t even know what I will be talking about but I will attempt to be funny and hopefully have visuals, but not a powerpoint. INFO IS HERE.

WHAT THE FUCK IS CLAIRE TALKING ABOUT BUT ALSO, CLAIRE RULES, GO JETS

this is a really big jets game but it’s also a really big game for me because 1. i am about 1.33 points away from winning my matchup in fantasy football this week and the jets are my defense. all they have to do is score 1.33 points and i’ll win and they will score way more than that, i hope. my opponent’s team is done with their games this week

and 2. the guy in first place is losing his matchup by 40+ points right now, he’s undefeated and is a dick to me.

the only guy he has left to play is one of the best players in the nfl but is possibly going to be benched for injury

which is great for the jets and their defense/my defense by proxy

but if this guy loses his game

i move into first place

3:52

also as the jets don’t score negative points in fantasy football

Like, can you even compose an American analogue to “Virgin Mary, become a feminist?” I would answer no, and I would say that’s pretty significant.

I’m thinking about this part, right now:

It was also fairly logical that the Russian Orthodox Church, given its long mystical ties to…

Virgin Mary feminism is so so so crucial to Xicanisma and Mexican Catholic culture, and Mexico might be a useful analogue when trying to understand the religious context of Pussy Riot’s action/message, altho I’m not exactly sure how to apply it because I am not a supergenius religious scholar like RGR. But if yr interested I do recommend this book called Our Lady of Guadalupe, Faith and Empowerment Among Mexican-American Women, by prominent Latina feminist theologian Jeannette Rodriguez, which was crucial for me in understanding how I grew up and placing myself as a Xicanist. WATCH ME HIJACK THIS PUSSY RIOT CONVO TO TALK ABOUT XICANISMA. GET DOWN WITH TONANTZIN WITH ME, HERMANAS.

I love the music of Mykki Blanco and have a lot going on w/her shit this wknd. First, I had him and her best friend, Physical Therapy, on my radio show this weekend. She freestyled twice and Physical Therapy played THEE best house diva set and we talked a whole bunch and played new shit from Mykki’s new album, as well as Physical Therapy’s—LISTEN HERE. ANNNNND—-I wrote about Mykki’s new video for “Join My Militia” (like my favorite song of quarter 1), which dropped today, over here. AUDRE LORDE AND AN OCTOPUS!
