There’s a winged liner “terminology” reference list going around and I decided to give them correct names.
I feel really fucking weird about this quote. I adore Teju Cole, and I get what he’s saying, and I agree, but bringing in the “chosen people” thing to denigrate the Jews strikes me as pretty antisemetic. Being the chosen people has nothing to do with thinking Jewish deaths matter more than other people’s deaths — it has everything to do with God’s covenant with the Jewish people. I just feel weird about bringing a religious concept in to a political discussion, especially one that has been the cause of so much pain and hardship for the Jewish people.
Am I being too sensitive? idk.
no, you’re right
he either doesn’t know what he’s talking about or is being malicious
agreed, you’re not being too sensitive. that quote is gross.
most recent person in my inbox re: the term “queer,” good question and i will get back to you tomorrow. you messaged me right after i hit the “oh shit, i am drunk and should be doing work” stage of drinking hard cider, i apologize for being a late lush
jeez i would love to order that thing online, but i don’t know what size to order it in because women’s clothing sizes are determined by the alignments of the planets in relation to the fuck you galaxy

i hope you don’t mind me publishing this but yes, this is another really good point that is worth noting!
