Whatever you are waiting for to happen under this administration is happening. ICE has torn 7000 children from the arms of their families and have “lost” 1475 of them. I don’t have much to offer up other than though I never identified with “proud American” politics (considering the deep ignorance that implicates for white American people to address themselves as) I can assure you I have never been more deeply haunted by that empty title until now. We should all be very, very sick. ICE are the kinds of unspeakable evil that has been historicized as being just that: history, not of this time. Yet ICE is detaining children, murdering brown people seeking asylum, and ripping apart families all while the president and his followers and even us- the “woke” mostly white liberals tell ourselves that things could be worse. The truth is things have hit That point, and have probably been at that point for so many communities besides our own. This is state sanctioned, murderous violence. We shouldn’t feel comfortable looking away.

“Gaza qualifies under every definition of genocide yet massacred protestors must always be identified as 'peaceful'. How do white settlers so successfully deform language that no matter how astounding their violence, it is always the colonized who have the burden of proving peace?” zaina alsous, today, may 14 2018

I just like remembering when I wore this @gucci jumpsuit to their show and felt like a Jetson, Okay Sis! I am on my third face mask this morning and may never Peak again!
The first thing I ever saved up for and bought for myself, Audrey’s autograph <3 Audrey’s presence on screen has always brought an emotional visceral-ness to me, to be able to witness these dimensional woman characters who weren’t superheroes or even necessarily empowered. Lately, I get concerned that a sort of recent feminism dictates that what constitutes Strong Women or Strong Female Leads are women who are to a certain extent, are playing men: an empoweredness, a inability to be shaken, maybe even less sensitive and more forceful with their will- while it is cool to see that I guess, I wonder what movies and other types of strong women are being left behind or forgotten as they as they are masqueraded under some sort of non feminist relevance. Audrey’s characters on screen never really had it figured out, sometimes they were selfish, insecure, silly helpless, or maybe even delicate. Her strong softness, (which was influenced by a especially strange and traumatic childhood, and dysphoric body illnesses all her life), reminded me that we do not need to position our softness, our sadness, or chaos or our voidness as in opposition to our feminism, or in what we classify as strong woman leads. Maybe we can work within it, think of it as being more radical to give nuance to and spotlight on the power of watching women think- the endless, fascinating world of our own psyches. If we are to describe woman super heroes or assassins or action stars etc as being the only kind of empowered characters, what does it mean for characters like Audrey’s who were just as full if not more so, of the deservingness and nuance to be called strong. Something to ponder about 🎻<3 Happy birthday Audrey, I love you forever! 💌
