this is actually a pretty cool diptych
I’m interested in the trans body interpreted through the legitimizing framework of social media and smartphone apps, which like all frameworks are not intended for sincere showcasing of trans bodies. I am approved by major corporations
This framework further interests me in the way it automatically replicates and modifies my body. Machines don’t have the intelligence to understand which bodies are unclean and forbidden to touch. This is why machines are used to defuse bombs, process waste, and touch trans women

Introducing the Social Intelligence Test! From what I can tell, it’s sponsored by Harvard and it’s rather interesting. The basis is you look at pictures of people going through different emotions and decide what emotion they’re feeling. The trick is, you can only see their eyes.
How well can you read people? I never thought I was good at it, but I scored rather high on this test. It was a very interesting experience! I highly recommend taking this!

but i think it’s less a testament to my natural social intelligence and more one to my intense social anxiety and checking and double checking and maybe even a highly developed sense of empathetic intuition stemming from trying to figure out how ppl *really* feel about me.
also though whats with all the women with strong makeup and sharp eyebrows being seemingly ‘flirty’ or ‘confident’ or ‘fantasizing’?

wow im kinda freaking out at how restless and lonely i feel now that i only have one job instead of three and have had an entire one and a half day off so far. what the fuck am i gonna do with the second half of my day off? i mean i already bought two glasses at the thrift store downstairs, went and bought fruit, ate a mango and strawberries, drank almond milk, and spent three hours slowly making it through one sixty-minute tv show while refreshing gmail, facebook and tumblr, and reading about israel

Whole families are killed in israeli strikes on Gaza , bombing houses have resulted in the despair of 30 families (reports say) and this is one of these stories :
The Abu Jarads died together. Eight of them. They were nestled into the second-floor bedroom of their family home in northeastern Gaza when the Israeli artillery shell came crashing through the wall.
They sat close to one another. Abdel Rahman and his wife, Raja, along with their two children, 6-month-old Moussa and two year-old Haneya. Abdel Rahman’s brother, Naim, and his 1-year-old son, Sameeh. And Abdel Rahman’s two other siblings, Ahlam, 15, and Summer, 13. Five of the eight are children.(x)
Yesterday , israeli have continued its goals in killing people in Gaza , other families died together in Shaj’ya massacre ( 60 people mostly children killed at least in one night in the neighborhood)
Funded by the United States to the tune of over 3 billion dollars a year in military weaponry and hardware!
Stop reblogging Carlos Latuff cartoons. He and his cartoons are very antisemitic. In this example, you see a blood libel trope.
it wouldnt surprise me if this cartoonist had other cartoons that were antisemitic but where the heck is a blood libel trope here
There’s blood in it, and it’s implying that “the Jews did it.”
