“Not queer like gay. queer like, escaping definition. Queer like some sort of fluidity and limitlessness at once. Queer like a freedom too strange to be conquered. Queer like the fearlessness to imagine what love can look like… and pursue it.” —Brandon Wint (via riseabovethemadness)
“Another problem with the sex positive movement is the idea that questioning the ethics of a fetish is always “kink shaming”. I think that whatever two adults do consensually is fine, but I also think that it’s important to critically examine why so many people fantasize about rape or have really racist sexual fantasies. Any sex worker can tell you that people have disturbing and fucked-up fetishes, and the idea that we shouldn’t question where those come from is ridiculous.” —

We couldn’t have said it any better.
things ppl say that alerts you to them being the actual worst:
- john was my favourite beatle
- abolishing religion would solve a lot of problems
- i’m not a racist i hate all races equally
- disliking someone because of their political affiliation is ridiculous
- but if you think abou it stereotypes do exist for a reason
- god, can you believe people on welfare own iphones
“As artists, we wish we could always work well, but we must settle for working always. The “always” we can control. The “well” we cannot control. For this reason, we do well to simply serve, to focus more on the process of doing our work than on the “product” of work produced.” —June 4th, The Artist’s Way Everyday (via brooklynwaste)
