This is pretty cool.
Don’t ask why I’m still on them (I do have a reason), but I’m thinking I should unsubscribe from every ny mailing list that is somehow still sending me email because otherwise I get messages like this and just want to be like — byebye law school!! Too many other things to learn! http://thecommonsbrooklyn.org/civicrm/event/info?id=12761&reset=1
Said by a white man, last night.
And he’s English, so Asian applies to the whole continent. Seriously, how is this not just…utterly dehumanizing? Oh wait, it *is*!
(Edit: sorry, it’s so gross I can’t even stand having it up there without the strikethrough. Edit 2. Obviously he studies “medieval” and European intellecutal history. Obviously. … actually, not so obviously, and it’s still a gross thing to have said.)
Why, foolish woman, would you read the news before you’re supposed to be go to sleep? Especially if it’s already an hour after you were supposed to be asleep?
UPPING THE AUNTY - MEERA SETHI
I’ve always loved Meera Sethi’s colourful and unique work but her ‘Upping the Aunty’ project really changed the game.
'Upping the Aunty' celebrates the South Asian “aunty”; her personal style and unique role in our lives. Meera flips the script on street style, by focusing her lens on aunties with swag.
Here are some of the awesome Auntys you can find on the Tumblr page…
1. Unknown Swag Aunty - Photo: Vivek Shraya
2. Rita Aunty - Photo: Meera Sethi
3. Gunalaxsmi Aunty - Photo: Meera Sethi
4. Sita Aunty - Photo: Meera Sethi
Meera is on the lookout for contributors to the project, so If you have an aunty whose style you love, send a new or vintage photo (with your aunty’s permission) over to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Am loving ‘unknown swag aunty’
You know when you wish something was a joke, but it’s not? It actually felt even worse to watch this video than I expected.
I wish there was a little more context for viewers around where this is (New York?) - but that’s pretty much it. Little mirror article is here; unclear why they’re the ones who posted it…
Things that keep me from dissolving into a bundle of stress.
