i had a lil epiphany last night. which i was and am still hesitant to share bc im not sure if it’s not just whining. but. you know.
basically i really like girls. girls are everything. but it’s weird for me, bc…….well. im a bi femme who’s pretty strictly attracted to other femmes. when it comes…
You’re not alone sis. I feel you on this. I’ve always been most attracted to femme gals. Unfortunately, the “progressive” SF Bay Area is very polarized into Butch/Femme so I’ve not dated any women since I’ve been out here.
The Death Rose (Rosa calvaria) is a rare and mysterious plant species. Beautiful when blooming, the buds form skull like faces when wilting.Biologists still don’t understand how the Death Rose forms these shocking designs as they are impossible to grow in lab experiments.
this is so fucking metal
like seriously as it dies it turns into a fucking skull
plants don’t get more metal than that
Despite the seemingly strong empirical support in previous studies for theories of majoritarian democracy, our analyses suggest that majorities of the American public actually have little influence over the policies our government adopts. Americans do enjoy many features central to democratic governance, such as regular elections, freedom of speech and association, and a widespread (if still contested) franchise. But we believe that if policymaking is dominated by powerful business organizations and a small number of affluent Americans, then America’s claims to being a democratic society are seriously threatened.
While this may be a big “duh” to a lot of U.S. citizens, a recent study which has been made open for public viewing concludes that the United States’ system of government is closer to that of a (corporate) oligarchy than it is a democracy. That is to say that power is vested within a small group of people, as opposed to the majority.
Historically speaking, oligarchies generally devolve into tyrannical states due to the concentration of power (usually based on class) with a smaller group of people who generally do not agree with the interests or preferences of the majority; these types of frictions lead to oppression by making some people more “equal” than others, as demonstrated in George Orwell’s Animal Farm, essentially giving people certain rights, but allowing those rights more freely to certain groups.
screw what they think
In no time, Dexter Ryan Jones has appealed to the souls and the minds of anyone in the New York scene who consider themselves fans of emerging underground art. Born in Brooklyn, he has a deep background in spoken word poetry and the performing arts. He gave birth to SirReal Photography in an effort to find a more behind-the-scenes way of expressing himself. Now using photography to tell his stories, he showcases his versatility as an artist using nature, a spectrum of saturated colors, and a number of references ranging from classic voices in Black American media to historic cultural/visual traditions found around the world.
Dexter is one of the youngest artists to have work featured in the Fela Kuti exhibit at the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), the Dandy Lion exhibit at MoCADA, Neekid Blk Gurls in the Rush Arts Gallery curated by Danny Simmons, and in 2013 Dexter was featured in his first solo art exhibition entitled, “Knight(ed)”. He’s worked with such acclaimed artists as Dread Scott, Patra, Brian Kirhagis, Grammy Award Winners, Bridget Kelly & Arrested Development, Derrick Ashong of Oprah Radio, Aaron Hall and more.
