Il Dolce Far Niente

"The sun shines not on us, but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies." -John Muir

Stanley Kubrick on set of his first feature film Fear and Desire.

The first of Kubrick’s 13 feature films, which I’m watching in order. Released in 1953. He later tried to destroy all copies.

That’s invading her rights as a person to decide whether or not she wants to get it done or not.

Mother wants answers after teenage daughter’s armpits were shaved by teacher

A fourteen year-old girl has her armpits forcibly shaved by a teacher, in front of other students. The teacher and school district defend it because the girl is developmentally disabled and needs to learn “independent living skills” (otherwise known, in this case, as why you must submit to gendered social norms at all times).

And the justification is that the girl would be made fun of if she didn’t do it? Maybe you should change the behavior of the kids that are the bullies, not the kids being bullied. Because even if you forcibly shave her armpits, she’s still noticeably disabled, and that (in her case) can’t be hidden/normalized quite so easily.

The message being sent here - and in so many of these programs - is “You’re being teased because you’re different, so try to be the same!” Rather than seeing the value in human difference and diversity.

(via disabilityhistory)

This makes me so angry.

"Speak slowly, we’re German.""What’s your favorite thing about her?""…. she’s there.""When did you most appreciate her being there?"

He made a slightly puzzled expression, then turned to his wife and started speaking in German. She looked up at the sky for a second, then said: “He is island in my life.”
