I mean, look. I get that white viewpoints are the ones that are paid attention to there, and I get that non-white folks are shouted down: I’ve been subject to that, I get that. But calling it WHITE is erasing to the work of the non-white people there - and especially work in changing that status quo - and it does have psychological effects on me as someone who gets misracialised a lot.

Chally: I think I need to get a marriage contract with this passionfruit slice
Dorian: Your relationship is that advanced, eh?
Chally: yeah I think we can go the distance
Dorian: I hope I'm invited to the wedding.
Chally: you can be the Best Pie
Yesterday I was in a government building and, right out at the front, there was a nativity scene. I was amazed. Then I looked closer and I saw that baby Jesus had strawberry blonde hair. … and then I stepped outside and came across the entrance to their aged and disability services department. This entrance was set above a step.

Sydney people, let's have a meet up! →

An event you might be interested on 14 December.
The law should not cater to the whims of the female mind and emotional state. ...– My favourite troll at Feministe today.
rabbitarmy replied to your audio post: Sorry it’s a bit crap, I was super nervous. … Not crap at all, you was good! That’s nice of you, but it actually wasn’t. I can picture my 16yo self slapping me. You would never believe I actually went to drama school. But I was determined to get that thing recorded!!
Sorry it’s a bit crap, I was super nervous. ...
I totally want to participate in this poetry reading thing but can’t figure out how to record! Someone help me out?
Is this really one of those things we want to use...
Over the last few months, I’ve noticed “TW” being used as shorthand for “trigger warning” a lot. I’m wondering why on earth is that? and where did this come from? But mostly, why has it taken off? Is a trigger warning really something you want ambiguity around? Is it something you really want to use community shorthand for, like it’s something you have to...

CHALLYMAS KNOWLEDGE, a collaborative poem by...
I WOO KNOWLEDGE IT TEACHES YOU STUFF NAMELY, ITSELF II SHAPED LIKE ITSELF WHAT’S A VASE LOOK LIKE A VASE
It’s like ‘well I don’t want to give up my internet cool kids friend card sooo’.– One of the reasons I can’t take a lot of social media/blogging as seriously as I did anymore. People, really. (via rhymeswithnothing)
Chally's tip of the day
If you have a conversation in which I’m misracialised, don’t pretend you didn’t, because you know that people have screencaps of that shit, whether you delete it or not. Then don’t use your lies against my friends. And don’t make me relive that pain by lying about it over and over again.
ardhra: challyzatb: I’m having a ragey day. Put things in my ask box, please, and amuse me. But I cannot find your ask box! We know you like Tennant, but: Eccleston or Smith? That is a really tough question. I’m going to give the boring answer and say that I like them both in their own way.
hypotheticalthalamus asked: If Carmen Sandiego were to use Sydney as a base to hide out from the law for a while, would you take her in and protect her from the authorities?

Chally: you consume more slash than I consume oxygen
slash is my oxygen
I have specialized gills
I’m getting really sick of white people acting like being called a racist is the wurst thing evah. Because then their experience of I-just-got-called-a-racist pain* just gets centred and then non-white people have to feel bad about speaking out about something that, you know, actually matters. That is, racism. *’I am SO UPSET! Being called a racist just RUINED MY DAY!’ Maybe...
abbyjean answered your question:thecurvature reblogged this from you and added:… i wish i could give you a delicious chocolate for every comment. (and more for some of them *coughricecough*) But abbyyyyyyyyyy you’ll make me fat and unhealthy and disgusting and WHY DO YOU HATE AMERICA??!!1!?!?!1
thecurvature reblogged this from you and added: Only 250,000? Why does it feel like so many more? Because of all those ones we deleted and read over and over trying to make sense of them and and and. I’m so tempted to post something like ‘We’ve just passed 250 000 comments. I fucking hate you people.’ Er, that is, ‘We’ve just passed 250 000...

Let’s get plastered.
The thirtieth edition of the Down Under Feminists Carnival is planned for 5 November, 2010, to be hosted by Bri at Fat Lot of Good. Bri is being kind enough to host the carnival for the second time. Submissions may be sent to fatlotofgood [at] internode.on.net for those who can’t access the blogcarnival submissions form. There is an optional theme: Body Image/Size Acceptance. We could always use...
Feministe will soon hit 250 000 (published) comments. When it does, how should we “celebrate”?
ekswitaj replied to your post: Commenters, I tell you. Only sometimes? Where sometimes = constantly.
Commenters, I tell you.
Sometimes I think some of the commenters over at That Blog I Write For don’t actually engage with what I’m saying but with what they would like me to have said.
