recumbentibous:

currently reading salt. by Nayyirah Waheed

overwhelmingly beautiful language

her writing overflows with soul and sunshine

her poems just leave me feeling affected, touched, and softened

my heart is honey :)))

"Imagine your girlfriend taking photographs of you, not selfies, not “outfit of the day”, no Instagram bullshit. Actual photos. When you wake up, when you look at her, when you’re making love, when you’re cooking, when you’re taking a shower. Imagine if your girlfriend did that. This is a person who loves creating a visual documentation of the person she loves. You would cry at every picture she took because you know it’ll be purer than any other visual representation of yourself."

SKILLET COOKIE
My skillet is only about 6 inches across, so I used 1/4 of this recipe and baked it for about 12 minutes. If you have a bigger skillet use the whole thing!
2 1/4 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 egg substitutes (4 tbsp water, 2 tbsp oil, 1 tsp baking powder)
1 1/2 cups vegan chocolate chips
Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift together the flour, salt and baking soda in a large bowl and set aside.
In a separate large bowl, beat together the margarine, sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and egg replacer. Add the dry ingredients to this and stir until combined well.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Press into skillet and bake 12 minutes for mini-skillet, probably 20 minutes for a full-sized skillet (not actually sure, let me know if you try it!)

my very last final project at the university of michigan is a creative project based on the word i randomly selected: “Ferocious.” (naturally, right?). it will be open to the public this Monday in the dude’s atrium!

ferocious and its synonyms, dangerous, savage, wild and beastly are largely used to describe wild animals to be feared. historically, these words have also been equated to the existence of the black body, since the onslaught of racist, anti-black systems in the united states, beginning with slavery, blackness has been relegated to a position of derogatory treatment and language.

my project is a social experiment, extended poem and picture exhibition (photos by javon moore) all wrapped in a booklet that explores the notion that the way my hair naturally grows is “wild” or “ferocious.” the goal is to inspire introspective dialogue around how we view, discuss and engage with an aspect of the black female identity. 

would love your support!

Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

The second bold section is incredibly important to remember.

Holy fuck that is actually really scary.
