Per Evolutionists a vestigial organ or appendage is supposedly something that exists in a living organism without any function, but served some useful purpose in the past in some ancestral form. These should exist as well as harmless appendages that never did perform any useful function. They would be external as well as internal.

This is one of my favorite images ever created. Apparently, evolutionary theory predicts that we should all have a couple dozen vestigial dicks, mostly on our faces.

I saw Carole Boyce Davies, the author of “Left of Karl Marx” speak about a few years ago and read from that book. Awesome book. I have not read it yet, but will put it in the book list. Honestly to see how she persevered in those times was both inspiring and sad.

weexist-weresist:

Ahhh I was just thinking about how I have to read this text during break when I saw this awesome conversation!! I will definitely be keeping these words in mind when I read. My mentor suggested the book BC I had a paper idea on homonormativity in immigration struggles so the transnational stuff is right up my area of interest. But I will be keeping a close eye on how the idea of blackness is treated by PUAR. One book ya’ll should look at if you’re interested in the transnational analyses of blackness and intersectionality is Left of Karl Marx, which is on Claudia Jones, a black Caribbean Communist who had ideas on resistance, feminism, and antiracism that predated much of the insight we saw coming out of the black power movement and wave feminism. She was also deported out of the US and spent much of her life in England so that set her up as a transnational figure as well. Thanks so much for this info.

@latinosexuality….#gchat. Now? in 20? Or we speak in next week? Splain Lucy….cuz.I told you I had words…

very interesting. jasbir puar is the writer of terrorist assemblages. good luck with that. (it’s getting a lot of traction in my department but i’m personally unimpressed by some of the major theoretical projects of the book. her individual analysis at certain moments is, however, interesting and productive. i’m curious, based on the convo which chapter was recommended.)

Dude. Black Girl Nerd Voltron is in full effect. Boss bear recommended the intro and the conclusion. I only have the intro tho.

Why you no impressed Gina?

I knew it! The intro and the conclusion are where Puar lays out her critique of intersectionality as a a theory of identity and replaces it with assemblages which to me weren’t that different except you stopped talking about Black US-born bodies and started talking about Brown bodies in not-the-US or immigrated-to-the-US. Intersectionality get labeled as reifying notions of stable identity categories (the devil) and teaching Black women  that an essential character is knowable or that there is an authentic ‘reproducable’ experience that is what being a Black woman  subject is about. 

I think the idea falls easily within the new post-racial essentialism discourse in academia that is more about de-centering/dis-empowering identity-based research/disciplines (like Ethnic Studies and Afro-Am) than saying anything particularly new about the nature of subjectivity. 

On top of that I just flat out disagree with her reading of intersectionality as a theoretical concept and pedagogical tool. And part of my reason for that is because I in general see ‘post-Intersectionality’ theorist as arguing that the theory is to ‘static’ and ‘fixed’ because it’s about the bodies and beings of Black women who, you know aren’t that complex. And because it (intersectionality) is a theory that is steeped in thinking about how material reality affects subjectivity not simply how subjectivity affects material reality but that complexity is again missed by many theorist because it’s based in an article written by a Black woman about Black women’s experience of domestic violence an such a piece cannot possibly have complicated metaphysical implications embedded within it (it can only be didactic.)

Lol. Sorry I’ve had that book hanging over my head for the last two and a half years (it was part of our first set of pre-lim exams) and as I said my department—which by and large doesn’t give two shits about talking about the complexity of being that is living as a Black woman in the US—has tried very hard to make the theory, cannon for all it’s students.

Ok Hole up Gina. Bear with me, because you are about to teach me some things.

Ok. Boom.

While I was reading the critique of intersectionality I thought of Sandoval’s oppositional consciousness and how some folks read her to be a critique of intersectionality.

Are you saying that folks are invested in Puar’s work because it is apart of post-structural theory, which has been of course critiqued for not theorizing bodies?

I think Puar is seen as the new wave of Post Post-Structural theory that is now theorizing about bodies but I would argue that Puar’s theorizing about bodies or at least the ways that I have seen her taken up values certain bodies (not-Black-women’s bodies.) So part of my frustration is more how she has been taken up as being the anti-thesis of Crenshaw’s theorization of intersectionality. 

And because it (intersectionality) is a theory that is steeped in thinking about how material reality affects subjectivity not simply how subjectivity affects material reality but that complexity is again missed by many theorist because it’s based in an article written by a Black woman about Black women’s experience of domestic violence

I had to read the first half of that sentence twice before I understood what you were doing rhetorically. So iyo, folks dismiss the viability of intersectionality because it is rooted in theorizing shit that Black women go through? If that is the case, not surprised?

Lol, it’s not a surprise but I still try to call it out when I see it. 

Are you also saying that it isn’t legitimate to critique how intersectionality critiques identity categories because it assumes that these categories fixed? I mean there are also many different definitions, Crenshaw’s, Thorton Dill’s, Collins…etc….to be accounted for…

I’m completely open to interrogating intersectionality and how it works and doesn’t work how it’s related to other theories of identity created by and about WoC in the same historical moment. I feel that the book, and it’s purveyors, don’t take seriously that project and off-hand assume a didactic, authenticity-invested read of WoC theorizations of subjectivity.

Would you say that there are any benefits for Puar’s work. Honestly, texts like this require for me to be in class to understand, so in many ways you are helping me and I appreciate it. I wish I had written down questions that I could ask you directly. :(

For me the book has been useful in shaping how I think about the ways that the transnational turn has encountered 80s & 90s WoC writing. If you are particularly invested in identity theory then I do think it’s a must read because it is dominating (at least within feminist, post-colonial, queer-of-color critique circles.) 

The other major theoretical draw from the book has been her critiques of homonationalism in the 3rd and 4th chapters. She is critique the process of homonormativity (a concept I also have problems with)and it’s relationship to citizenship and belonging in the nation-state. If you’re at all interested in academic discourses on performing normativity from varied sexual and gendered bodies then it’s an important read. 

Having written my response to this post, I am grateful for your response because you have helped me to situate Puar’s work within the historical context of other conversations going on. #ummhmm.

#BlackgirlsarefromtheFuture. #proof.^^^^^^

Writing this helped me clarify for myself that it’s less Puar herself, though I would charge her with being unnecessarily opaque and obtuse in her writing style—in her words, as an attempt to enact asssemblages within her very writing on them. It is more with the way that her theorizations about identity are being taken up as this major transnational turn* in Post Post-Structuralism identity theory. Which again I’ll say seems to coincide a little too neatly to me with the attempts to dismantle identity-based disciplines like Ethnic Studies, African-American Studies, Native/Indigenous Studies, Latin@/Chican@ Studies because they are theoretically backwards or unnecessary and be folded into ‘American Studies’ or ‘Race and Ethnicity’ Studies…a problematic move in my opinion.

*The transnational turn, in my experience, seems to suggest that Black people inside the US, brought there by the Atlantic Slave Trade are not transnational enough, at this moment. It is perhaps fruitful to think about transnationality of Black bodies in the 19th century, the early 20th century, but post-Black power and the Third World movements Black people born in the US some how get stuck with being too ‘Western’ to count. I disagree with this perspective and I will admit that makes me highly suspicious of most thought coming out of the transnational turn. It seems to me that within this logic we need to ‘get beyond talking about race as a Black and white issue’ to talking about race in a transnational sense that erases the ways that Blackness as a concept circulated (with and without actual Black bodies) and has been integral to how the world has shaped its understanding of itself. But maybe that’s the former Afro-Am major in me. I don’t study ‘race’ as a category of analysis (even though I say I do to get over)I study Blackness…specifically and emphatically.

Woops, I went on a little mini rant/tangent on that side note.

I’m going to have to steal that tag!

#blackgirlsarefromthefuture

First of all. We have to meet b/c you are a cold piece of work.

Second, in Collin’s “Black Feminist Politics” she discusses “The New Racism” and how it interacts and is invested in gender. She also talks PRECISELY about the viability of theorizing from Black American subjectivities because of our particular history within this country and what this teaches us about the US. She also discusses much of what you are talking about with this “transnational” turn and how folks say, within this so called “post Black” discourse that negros are not legitimate for theorizing.

What is fucking bugged as SHIT to me is how 3rd world Feminists  and woman of color feminists in the 80’s and how the Black Panthers in the 60’s-70’s made some of their most powerful and lasting arguements connecting the plights of Black people in the US to the plights of opressed folks globally.

Perhaps this international turn shit is rooted in focusing on and separating because of differences and an unwillingness to see the power and benefits of similarities at the particular stage of capitalism.

Your comment about the dismantling of Chicano…Black…Ethnic…Studies and how it coincides with Puar’s work is HELLA interesting……I know that folks use theory to justify directions within programs and policies in general…so it is interesting for me to learn about this in real time.

You Smaht Gina….

Occupy Portland Outsmarts Police, Creating Blueprint for Other Occupations
“The police have no response to this tactic, other than resorting to brutality. And if they do that, we win whether they clear the park or not.”
Read more…

The Portland Occupation stumbled upon a tactical innovation regarding occupying public spaces. This evolution in tactics was spontaneous, and went unreported in the media. On December 3rd, we took a park and were driven out of it by riot police; that much made the news. What the media didn’t report is that we re-took the park later that same evening, and the police realized that it would be senseless to attempt to clear it again, so they packed up their military weaponry and left. Occupy Portland has developed a tactic to keep a park when the police decide to enforce an eviction.
Protesters function fluidly as either light or heavy infantry. Their mass, because it is lacking in organization, functions as a phalanx, having no flanks or rear. Lack of organization gives that mass the option of moving in whichever direction it feels like, at any given time. If protesters all move to the right, the entire group and supporting officers has to shift to that flank. While the protesters can retreat quickly, the police can only advance as fast as their light infantry, supporting staff can follow and maintain a secure rear (if the mass of protesters were to run to the next block over and quickly loop around to the rear of the riot cops, the organization of the cops would be reduced to chaos). If that police cannot assemble with a front to oppose protesters, they are useless. The integrity of that tactic is compromised, and unable to maintain internal organization, the cops revert to individuals engaging in acts of brutality, which eventually winds up on the evening news and they lose the battle regardless of whether they clear the park or not.
Because of the lack of organization in a crowd of protesters, light infantry cops firing tear gas, etc. has little effect because it just serves to disorganize a group that relies upon disorganization in the first place. All it really does is disorganize the riot cops, who then resort to brutality.
Great article, worth the read.

Oxumarè - Orixá do Arco-Íris 

Òsùmàrè (a word in nagô language) is the proper name of the rainbow-serpent of Candomblé mythology. The rainbow-serpent represents mobility and activity, and it controls the forces that direct movement. Osumare is the Lord of all elongated things. The umbilical cord, for instance, is under its control. In Candomblé ritual, the umbilical cord is buried with the placenta under a palm tree, which becomes property of the newborn baby. The child’s health will depend on the good conservation of this tree and on Osumare. (Sustainability linked with spirituality - how it should be)
African Origins:

In African religion there is also a rainbow-serpent connected to the Orixa Oxumare. Oxumare (O Shoo Mah Ray) is the rainbow. Oxumare is a rainbow serpent. Oxumare is also one of the Orixa that changes sexes. Some Orixa such as Oxossi have a path of the opposite sex (i.e. La Penya). Oxumare is male part of the year and female part of the year. In some Houses, Oxumare spends half the year with a male top and female bottom, and half with a female top and male bottom. Damballah Wedo is Oxumare’s counterpart among the Fon based Lwa of the Vodoun religion. Like Damballah Wedo, Oxumare is a rainbow serpent. He/She is the messenger from Olodumare.
Among the African Yoruba, Olodumare (God) is essentially unreachable. Thus the Orixa are the intermediaries and helpers as Olodamare encompasses all things they are manifestations of Gods profound energy which is just as equally female and male. Oxumare is something of an exception to that generality. Oxumare brings messages to us directly from Olodumare. As such He/She is very important for our welfare.

Damballah Wedo is Oxumare’s counterpart among the Fon based Lwa of the Vodoun religion. Like Damballah Wedo, Oxumare is a rainbow serpent. He/She is the messenger from Olodumare.

Among the African YorubaOlodumare (God) is essentially unreachable. Thus the Orixa are the intermediaries and helpers as Olodamare encompasses all things they are manifestations of Gods profound energy which is just as equally female and male. Oxumare is something of an exception to that generality. Oxumare brings messages to us directly from Olodumare. As such He/She is very important for our welfare.

Too many old white men books. I’ll respect anyone who read The Autobiography of Malcolm X or Revolutionary Suicide (Huey P Newton) more than someone who studied the works of Shakespeare.

‘Gay Cure’ Experiment - At Buchenwald concentration camp, Danish SS doctor Carl Vaernet experimented on homosexual subjects using hormones and artificial glands. His goal was to override homosexual feelings by injecting hormones into mens’ testicles and implanting glands in their bodies. Many of the subjects died due to complications and infections, and rumors circulated that as many had been castrated.

Between June and December of 1944, Vaernet tried various gland techniques on 17 Buchenwald inmates. Two contracted fatal illnesses as a result. In the grand scheme of things, almost all of the 15,000 gay and lesbian inmates of Nazi camps did not survive.

All of Carl Vaernet’s research proved to be a complete failure. Within the Third Reich, Vaernet became a laughingstock. At war’s end, he cowardly escaped justice by faking a heart attack while in custody and fleeing to South America, where he died in 1965.

Vaernet was the only Nazi doctor proven to have taken an interest exclusively in homosexuality, and it is possible that he helped inspire the South African apartheid government to take a similar interest. From the 1960’s until the late 1980’s, the South African military forced it’s white gay and lesbian members to undergo various ‘cures’ for their orientation, including mandatory sex change operations.

The apartheid government taking cues from the Nazis? Inconceivable!

The Harlem Riot of 1935, the first in New York City in the 20th Century, was the consequence of a lingering unemployment crisis and police brutality.  At 2:30 p.m. on March 19, 1935, a 16-year-old black Puerto Rican boy named Lino Rivera stole a 10 cent penknife from the Kress Five and Ten store on 125th Street.  Both the store owner and the assistant manager saw Rivera steal the knife and managed to capture him before he was able to run away.  A mounted police officer was called to the scene to investigate.  When asked if he wanted to press charges, the store owner instructed the officer to let Rivera go.  In order to avoid anxious crowds and excited spectators, the officer took Rivera down through the back entrance of the store and out onto 124th Street.  When one of the spectators saw the police officer take Rivera away, she shouted that they were going into the basement to beat Rivera.  An ambulance arrived moments later to take care of the store owner and the assistant manager, who suffered scratches and other wounds while trying to tackle Rivera.  When the ambulance left the scene empty, many of the spectators assumed that Rivera had been killed.Shortly after the ambulance left, a hearse parked across the street from the store at 124th Street.  The driver was visiting his brother-in-law, who was inside of the store.  Gathering crowds immediately assumed that the hearse was there to haul away the body of Rivera.  The police who arrived on the scene attempted to inform the growing crowds that no harm had been done to Rivera.  Spectators began to demand that the police bring out Rivera alive, but police officers repelled the crowds and claimed that this was none of their business.  At 5:30 p.m. the store on 125th Street was closed and New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia urged the residents of Harlem to remain calm.The closing of the store did little to stop the anger of the crowd, and word spread across into Harlem that a boy had been mistreated by the police.  Groups organized by the Young Communist League and a black group called the Young Liberators mounted a demonstration that drew thousands of people.  When a white member of the Young Communist League was introduced and stood up to speak, an object was thrown through the window of the store, and the police responded by arresting the speaker and attempting to disperse the crowd.The crowd reorganized across the street and another speaker tried to address the group from a lamp post perch.  The police arrested him as well on the charge of “Unlawful Assemblage.”  The crowds began to gather in greater numbers along 125th Street, and soon spread to other areas in Harlem.  As the sun set, the looting and window smashing began.  Police attempted to stop the crowds by circulating photographs of Rivera alive, but this fueled rumors that the photographs were fake.The rioting ended the next day when New York Governor Herbert Lehman announced to Harlem’s white shop owners that city officials had the situation under control.  Overall, three African Americans were killed and nearly sixty were injured.  Seventy five people, mostly blacks, were arrested by the police. The riot caused over $200 million in property damage.

This Is All Kinds Of Wrong of the Day: [Trigger warning: Graphic images of violence against women] Egypt’s ruling military junta enraged the world today after footage emerged of army soldiers severely beating defenseless women in Cairo’s Tahrir Square — even going so far as to remove one of victim’s black abaya, exposing her torso.

According to The Telegraph, the Egyptian army raided nearby homes shortly after the incident and seized multiple cameras in an effort to suppress the footage.

The violence in Tahrir Square — homebase of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution — entered its third day, with at least 10 killed so far in clashes between protesters and military police. Hundreds more have been injured.

Egyptian citizens angered by the military regime’s refusal to relinquish power attempted to stage a sit-in outside the parliament building. Skirmishes broke out after the protesters were detained and reportedly abused by the military.

The crackdown expanded Saturday, with armed soldiers firing live ammunition at protesters in Tahrir Square in an effort to hasten their retreat and bring a definitive end their three-week-long demonstration.

What is it about advertising that makes sexism seem like a good marketing campaign? I’ll never be sure. This is part of the problem. This is part of the underlying menace that is stereotypical gender roles. These subtle messages are what allow misogynistic comments and jokes to be made. We all saw Dr. Pepper’s latest marketing campaign - “Not For Women.” It’s these small things we see every day, everywhere, that remind us that we’re far from equality. Frankly, I’m tired of living in a world where advertisers think they need sexism to sell their products.
i’m just really sick of being told i take things too seriously when i see issues with things like this. it’s not just a joke, even if you say it is. there is something seriously wrong here, and I’m sick of being treated like I’m overreacting to these little things because these little things are a part of our very fucked up big culture of bullshit and prejudice.

Remember that time sexism died? Yeah, me neither.

Ol’ Dirty

Maya Angelou reading Still I Rise.”

You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise.

Does my sassiness upset you?
Why are you beset with gloom?
‘Cause I walk like I’ve got oil wells
Pumping in my living room.

Just like moons and like suns,
With the certainty of tides,
Just like hopes springing high,
Still I’ll rise.

Did you want to see me broken?
Bowed head and lowered eyes?
Shoulders falling down like teardrops.
Weakened by my soulful cries.

Does my haughtiness offend you?
Don’t you take it awful hard
‘Cause I laugh like I’ve got gold mines
Diggin’ in my own back yard.

You may shoot me with your words,
You may cut me with your eyes,
You may kill me with your hatefulness,
But still, like air, I’ll rise.

Does my sexiness upset you?
Does it come as a surprise
That I dance like I’ve got diamonds
At the meeting of my thighs?

Out of the huts of history’s shame
I rise
Up from a past that’s rooted in pain
I rise
I’m a black ocean, leaping and wide,
Welling and swelling I bear in the tide.
Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.

Do you know who Sarah “Saatije” Baartman is?

unapproachableblackchicks:

I do …. but let the world know!! 

The Hottentot Venus (Saartjie Baartman) became the focus of scientific debate over racial inferiority waged at the Paris Academy of Science. Baartman was exhibited in carnival-like shows across Britain that sensationalized her unusual anatomy: she had steatopygia, an over-development of fatty tissue around the buttocks, a trait common to Hottentot women, which led to her misidentification. She also had extended labia minora, the so-called “Hottentot apron.” A court battle failed to free Baartman from her exhibitors, and in 1814 she was taken to Paris. Her remains were preserved and exhibited in Paris until 1985, and were finally returned to South Africa at the request of Nelson Mandela in 2002.

I always wonder what the women would say of our history if they could all speak. Not just wealthy white women in certain times & places who kept journals or wrote letters. All the women. The servants, the bar maids, the prostitutes, the spies, the killers, the dancers, the slaves, the witches, the mistresses, the maidens, & the crones. All of them & all of their views of the world around them. what if every woman in every when could tell her story? How would that shape our view of the past? What would we think of motherhood, of science, of art, of well everything…if we knew what the women were thinking?

this is what disturbs me most about dominican history. womens voices are non-existent. especially those of poor, black women, which happen to be the MAJORITY.

what do you REALLY know? really? i reckon not much given the erasure of what is over half the populace for hundreds of years.

The unfortunate truths about history that we refuse to acknowledge.

I remember learning about slave narratives, and that many of them had to go through “screening” and approval. So a lot of the narratives that we DO have were white-washed and edited. The voices and stories were only widely publicized after they (LITERALLY) had the stamp of approval by white women.

So we’re not even JUST erasing the stories and points of view of many - but the stories that we have no CHOICE but to acknowledge (slavery) we pretend played out like some ABC family special.

There’s a professor I know who makes a point, at any chance he gets to read excerpts from Christopher Columbus’ journal where he describes the rape of women in Congo like it was NOTHING. Something along the lines of  he saw a beautiful woman, tried to have sex with her, when she refused he beat her mercilessly. It ends with “by the time I was finished with her, you would have thought she was raised in a school for whores.” I shit you not. Those exact words were used. In his journal - because that type of shit was just as normal and everyday as “I woke up and tended to the garden.”

lots of ppl have started following me today o_O
so. things you should know. uh you’ll see a lot of babbling bout rihanna. im pretty fond of gee. i occasionally say things like ‘fuck cis ppl’. i like glitter and talking to ppl.
yes.

why would you hate on cis-gendered people just because they are cis? isn’t that the same as hating on people who do not fit into the binary? it’s sort of counter-productive. just wondering.

nuh see, it’s like, not about specific Cis people, but like, the culture of Cis-ness. The whack-ass disenfranchisement of those who do not fit into the gender binary for the comfort of those who do.

Ron Paul, Racism, Bad Arguments

But my favorite argument of them all (here, here, and here, for example) is the one that says Ron Paul can’t hold any racist beliefs because he’s a libertarian and libertarianism is inherently an anti-racist philosophy insofar as it discourages any thinking about groups and only focuses on individuals (and their rights).

To see why this is nonsense, consider the following statements:

  • Leaders of the Communist Party in the Soviet Union or any of its Eastern European satellite states couldn’t possibly have owned private property because they were all committed Marxists and Marxism is inherently opposed to private ownership.

  • Throughout history, Christians have always been forgiving to one another and have always treated all human beings with the respect befitting their dignity because the Christian Bible teaches that forgiveness is one of the highest human virtues and that all human beings, as the beloved children of God, are brothers and sisters.

I could go on and on with these, but I’ll stop with just two. The logic in each one is delightful, except that we all know the statements are false.

So what, because these people are in a tight spot, they don’t deserve a little splurge sometimes? Or if they have kids, those kids don’t deserve an occasional luxury - something their friends take for granted?
:/

I love you, Moony.

My last month on food stamps I bought every ridiculous thing I could think of just piss people like this off.

Its stuff like this that fuels government cuts to welfare. Keep feeding into the iedology of the “welfare queen” and help justify cuts to valuable aid that keeps children in poverty fed. I’m so glad the need to sneer and poke fun at the lives of people in poverty is more important than understanding how being able to afford basic things and even the most BASIC luxuries (oh noes! cigarettes and candy!) is absolutely crucial.
Like when the government decided to put impose the welfare time clocks of five collective years because of the myth of the woman who lived on welfare her whole life - even though statistics at the time showed that most welfare recipients barely ever even needed the program for more than 5 years. 
I’d like to see someone try to live off of food stamps and then turn around and try to talk shit on the poor.

Oh shit, I remember an episode of, like, The Twilight Zone? and it was based around this premise. Pretty freaky.
