"I wonder if you know yet that you’ll leave me. That you are a child playing with matches and I have a paper body. You will meet a girl with a softer voice and stronger arms and she will not have violent secrets or an affection for red wine or eyes that never stay dry. You will fall into her bed and I’ll go back to spending Friday nights with boys who never learn my last name.

I have chased off every fool who has tried to sleep beside me. You think it’s romantic to fuck the girl who writes poems about you. You think I’ll understand your sadness because I live inside my own. But I will show up at your door at 2 am, wild-eyed and sleepless. and try and find some semblance of peace in your breastbone and you will not let me in. You will tell me to go home."

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.

Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.

He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

Chichén Itzá tiene un efecto acústico que fue descubierto por casualidad. Resulta que a finales del siglo XX, cuando el turismo en la zona incrementó, los guías de turistas se dieron cuenta que si una persona aplaude de forma frontal a la escalinata, el sonido del aplauso se propaga hacia el peralte de los escalones y rebota en forma de eco distorsionado, -o sea, que se escucha diferente al aplauso-, con lo que se escucha un chirrido muy similar al canto de un quetzal.

that fact that revenge porn and leaking of women’s nudes exists at the same time as the readily accessible porn industry is an explicit example of the ways in which women are viewed as sex objects for male consumption. when men are denied the right to our bodies, they steal…

Expresiones Mexicanas, comidas, tradiciones…

Pues me he dado la tarea de el día de hoy traerles un repertorio de expresiones mexicanas,comidas, tradiciones… (como lo dice el título) para aquellos que no sean mexicanos y quieran aprender un poco más de nuestras expresiones y costumbres.

"

Expresiones

1.- Apantallar.- Impresionar a alguien con la intención de deslumbrarle, fanfarronear. En El Salvador y en Perú tiene el mismo significado; algo parecido también pasa en Costa Rica, donde apantallar implica fingir algo que no se es.  ”Apantalle a esa chica con mis musculosos brazos”

2.- Hueva.- Tedio, holgazanería o negligencia a la hora de realizar acciones y trabajos; también llamada flojera, esa bendita pereza que algunos incluso califican de pecado capital. Para los extranjeros y los cómics infantiles, la imagen  tradicional de la hueva en México son aquellos dos señores cubiertos con enormes sombreros, sentados al sol con un chihuahua a cada lado; les aseguro que al menos yo no he visto ninguno. “Me da hueva salir hoy, me voy a quedar en casa”

 La expresión a huevo” significa “por fuerza”, y luego están, obviamente, todas las referencias testiculares habidas y por haber. Con todos los giros, variantes, detalles, apuntes y repuntes que quieran imaginar.

“A huevo tengo que lavar el carro hoy, si no, no me lo prestarán”

3.- Ñánaras.- Sensación deansiedad o nerviosismocausada por una situación inquietante. En realidad el término ñáñara también tiene un origen médico: se trata de una comezón de tipo hemorroidal, escozor en el ano.

Fue un programa de televisión muy popular en los años 70, Los Polivoces, el que popularizó el uso del término ampliándolo a esta acepción de “temor irracional”. Caserones solitarios, sendas oscuras, extraños crujidos en el piso de arriba o una visita al tianguis de Tepito: ¿sienten ya las ñáñaras?

Sinónimo en español: temor, escalofrío / hemorroides

“No mames, güey, no pienso entrar ahí: ese lugar lleva abandonado un chingo de tiempo, me da ñáñaras” 

4.- Abusado.-  Cuando decimos que alguien es “Abusado” queremos decir que es:  pícaro, vivo, inteligente. “Jorge es muy abusado con las finanzas” // Abusado! es una advertencia como atención! o cuidado! “Ponte abusado” significa prestá atención, ponte alerta. También se dice “ponte agujeta”.

5.- Bronca.- Problema “tengo muchas broncas”, “Es una bronca salir contigo”.

6.- Jalada.- Chiste malo o de mal gusto “Tú y tus jaladas”, “ya deja de decir tantas jaladas”

7.- Choro. Hablar mucho y muchas veces sin sentido o verdad “Él es bien chorreo”, “Dile un choro a la maestra para que te deje salir”, “Me choree a mi mamá”

whibwhub said: Do you have any recomendations of authors/books/articles to read that actually interrogate and describe the effects of oppression and discrimination on the pysche?

wretchedoftheearth:

I do, actually! From a philosophical, psychological, or sociological perspective (and sometimes a mix of them), generally. Most of them are specific to racism (and many of those, to Black people), though I do have some more generalized recommendations. Some of these attack the issue head-on, while others are more tangentially related. I’ve quoted a lot of these on my blog and have noted it when I remembered to do so (but I tag most of my posts, so you could look for others in my tags).

More general or not just racism:

dearnonacepeople:

People defend capitalism by saying that capitalism is the only system that works. Ask someone who’s homeless how capitalism is working for them or those in sweatshops or those unable to get adequate healthcare or education. Capitalism is continuing the destruction of our earth, creating economic inequality, perpetuating classism, racism, ableism, child labor, and so much more. Capitalism doesn’t work, it kills.
