Hey! I write opinion pieces and submit them to the press. I live in a province with less than 150,000 people, so I think that sort of helps in the way that there are not a lot of people submitting things to be published.
I’m happy that my articles have continued to be published and I also spread the article around via Facebook to really get people to see what’s going on!
I hope that reply wasn’t too ramblely!
I haven’t been posting here as much lately because I’ve been busy calling out the government (where I live) via newspaper articles.
I’ve gotten so sick and tired of being treated like my needs, as a person with a disability, don’t matter that I’m no longer going to sit idly by while the government throws their money into pointless causes.
I know that it may seem like I’m asking for a lot, but I never asked to be disabled. I was told by many people when I was younger that I didn’t have to worry about my living situation when I got older, that the government would “take care of things”, but here I am, 27 years old and I don’t even live in a wheelchair accessible apartment.
This city and it’s government is nothing short of a disgrace and I’m calling them on their bullshit!
So that’s what I’ve been doing lately.
"The Untold Renaissance": Ikire Jones Spring/Summer 2014 Lookbook.
It’s all dapper hommes, suave strides and bold prints and patterns in Nigerian designer Wale Oyejide’s Spring/Summer 2014 lookbook for his brand Ikire Jones.
“This collection pays homage to 18th century textiles and tapestries while exploring the absence of persons of color in Medieval and Renaissance-era European art. Borrowing from the sampling method employed in hip hop culture, each reinvented piece tells an original narrative from the perspective of Africans who have been placed in an alien context. Through this reverse lens to the past, the present circumstances of individuals who feel displaced and alienated may also be considered.”
""I love women," is not a get out of jail free card. Thicke pulled the same bullshit when he was accused of degrading women in "Blurred Lines": "When we made the song, we had nothing but the most respect for women," he said. How nice of you to say so, Mr. Thicke. Alas, your work shows the opposite to be true. I am fairly certain many of the men who buy sex and consume porn also think they do it because they really, really, love women. NOPE. You love women like I love wine — as something I consume selfishly for my personal benefit and as a product."-Meghan Murphy (No, “female-appreciation” is not the same thing as feminism)
