We use language in various forms from the moment we’re born until the moment we die. To pretend or argue that it has no power, that it can’t be used to marginalize and oppress, that it can’t be violent, that it can’t be used to murder, is either immensely disingenuous, or completely naive.
When white western men condemn muslim men for misogyny, they’re not doing it because they give a fuck about women, because if they did they’d start by addressing the sexism they perpetuate personally. They don’t give a fuck about women, they want an excuse to be racist.
I should totes explain this.
I saw a bunch of racebent disney princesses..
and then I saw a racebent Elsa…. and I just kinda thought of this.
It’s an Aztec Snow Queen. Her outfit is a goddess-like one. (Cuz not all the aztecs dressed like that.)
So, like… I actually made her outfit based on Chalchiuhtlicue, Tlaloc, Tezcatlipoca, and Coyolxahqui’s. (Chalchiuhtlicue was the wife of Tlaloc, she was the goddess of living(moving water, just like Tlaloc was the god of rain and water, they were the responsibles of rain, waves, ice and snow. Tezcatlipoca was the jaguar warrior, the god of night, winter and material things. Coyolxauhqui was the moon, well.. her head became the moon, it’s a long story.)
So like, I thought that… since she had some sort of control over ice/snow, the people would want her to become a goddess/god wife. And the way for aztecs to do such things, was sacrificing the girl, to give her to the god they wanted her to marry or to hlp her get to the land of the gods, then the high priest would wear her skin as a tribute.
So, she is prepared for that but she doesn’t want to die so he runs away to the mountain, freezes a lot of people, and sets an eternal winter on the lands she lives in, so everyone now knows her as the snow queen in the mountain. Her sister then says she will go and make her stop the winter.
So….Aztec Elsa would be named Izel, and Anna should be Ayauh

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.

Hello Friends, Comrades and Family,
I am writing to ask for support in my travels to the Allied Media Conferece this year. My workshop “Radical Queer Sobriety” has been accepted and I am preparing to return to this fertile conference for more inspiration about liberation. I’m asking for help because I will be graduating this June, have no job lined up (am looking) and have just enough budgeted income from gigs to make ends meet but not enough to make it to the AMC.About me:
Fabian Romero is a Two Spirit Queer Chicano poet, blogger and artist. Their sincere poetry and stories stem from their experiences as an Economic Refugee, speaking two languages, Queerness and survival as a agricultural migrant laborer. Fabian was born in Michoacán, Mexico and came to North America when they were seven years old. Since 2007 they have performed poetry and facilitated anti-oppression and self care workshops throughout North America. Their poetry and stories have been published in several zines and publications including Uproot zine, Troubling the Line: Trans and Genderqueer Poetry and Poetics and To The Exclusion of All Others: Queers Questioning Gay Marriage. Currently they are pursuing a BA at Evergreen State College with a focus in writing, social justice and film and are a part of the Brown Boi Project.
About the Workshop:
In this closed space for self identified radical queer sober folks or those considering sobriety, this workshop will help build or hone skills for navigating queer spaces that are often centered around drugs and alcohol. My goal as a facilitator is to have participants walk away with more understanding of how addiction is connected to ablism, how to set boundaries with people we love and how to take care of our needs to maintain our sobriety. I’d also love to build connections and friendships.
Thank you for considering this. Thank you for your support. I value each and every bit of it whether you donate a little or share this link.
i’m more than half way through my goal! thank you all for your contributions and support. i have been touched deeply by your generosity and kind words. please continue to share this, i just need $335 to make my goal! muchisimas gracias con todo mi corazonsito de nopal xx fabian
i just need $278 to meet my goal!!! :)
Please support this amazing artist and poet! This workshop raises some incredibly needed dialog.

2,456 words I’m so sorry but it should be a short read because it’s very cracky and silly
The snacks had all been bought, the pizza ordered, the sofas arranged, and the music prepared. It was Friday night, which meant the end of the week’s classes and the start of weekend get-togethers fantastic and fun. For the time being, there was no homework to consider, no pressing personal problems, no unknown, post-graduation future to mull over. Instead, there was the night dragging into the wee hours of the morning as friends left their real-world cares behind: for Friday night was Dungeons and Dragons night.
Latin American author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who won the Nobel Prize in literature in 1982, died Thursday. He was 87. Garcia Marquez, the master of a style known as magic realism, was and remains Latin America’s best-known writer.
His novels were filled with miraculous and enchanting events and characters; love and madness; wars, politics, dreams and death. And everything he had written, Garcia Marquez once said, he knew or heard before he was 8 years old.
Chilean novelist Ariel Dorfman says Marquez’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech was one of the author’s most important messages to the world.
"Garcia Marquez is speaking about all the people who are marginal to history, who have not had a voice," Dorfman says. "He gives a voice to all those who died. He gives a voice to all those who are not born yet. He gives a voice to Latin America."
