Hi, I'm Liy: Autodidactic sailor-tongued poly polyglot Muslim cis-cat-lady Marxist feminist Southeast Asian poet with some DSM IV TR action in the mix. Growing up was a long and anxious act of gift unwrapping cliches, baggage, and labels. But today I am glorious!!!! so it's okay.
COMFORTABLE WITH: books, travelling light, bird's eye chilli, profanity, privilege checks
NERVOUS ABOUT: cubicles, crowds, tablecloths, infants, fashion, screaming in cars
MORE AT: Dizzy.li
It terrifies me how Emma Watson gave a speech on feminism that was so carefully geared not to offend the sensibilities of men, and they still threatened her with violence and exposure in a horrifying way. These men don't hate feminism, they hate women plain and simple

I think it’s a defining moment in the radicalization of young women when they realize men, as a class, absolutely and violently hate them.

Being a critical fan means that you love a famous human being, knowing fully well they are flawed and can make mistakes due to their privilege-blindness or outright ignorance (whether knowingly or unknowingly practicing misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, ableism, racism, etc.). When they fuck up, it is your duty as a critical fan to make them better, call them out and educate them. Your job is not to create excuses and adamantly defend their mistakes because they are so fierce in your eyes.
"I think what we need is a colorblind society." Now folks, when you hear somebody say that you know you’re listening to a racist…

NINETEEN FUCKING NINETY-TWO
Jane Elliot is the fucking truth
she goes “i know this maybe hard for you because white males are accustomed to telling people things not listening to people so let me break it down for you”
i have died and she has resurrected me
There was a time in the early 90’s where people were really talking about race and what it meant to be black."white males are accustomed to telling people things not listening to people." goddamn yesThis is a great ally.
Jane Elliot is ALL the fucking life, man.
"This is how I was on the bus after finishing the third book."
So I kinda love reliving something I loved by recommending it to someone else, then finding out it’s aged well. It didn’t seem that long ago that I was waiting for the next book to come out, and then the next movie, and then the next book…
At 27, different things about the #HarryPotter series stick out to me now (its parallels, symmetry, character detail, all the fan theories… Now I find Harry the least interesting character tbh).
@fuzzfurzann wants to watch each movie immediately after finishing its book, and we chat a lot about it along the way (yay I don’t actually have to reread it just revisit also can). She told me, “I know I’m like, 16 years late, and I feel a bit silly reading it at 25, but I get to skip all that waiting you had to do.”
Then she asks me for spoilers anyway -_-
What books do you usually recommend people? Does it change based on who they are or do you recommend what you like? I haven’t recommended films in awhile cause it usually means I’ll watch with them which in turn means it’s possible that I watch a movie I recommended six times, one for each person/group. yeesh.
