Marginalia

She let him finish, scratching his head with the tips of her fingers, and without his having revealed that he was weeping from love, she recognized immediately the oldest sobs in the history of man.

― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez, 100 Years of Solitude

This is what I feel this book did for me: scratched my head, almost amused, recognizing pain, experiences, passions - centuries-old - and thereby affirming, fundamentally, my humanity.

And I cried. For myself. For this woman talkin’ about love. For all the women who have ever stretched their bodies out anticipating civilization and finding ruins.

Sonia Sanchez (Homegirls and Handgrenades)

My escape from all the drunk, belligerent dudes moshing around the city on St. Patrick’s Day weekend.

humansofnewyork:

"I know this isn’t going to be a popular opinion, but I’m gay, and I don’t think there’s nearly as much discrimination as people claim. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve experienced discrimination. But it hasn’t been a huge factor in my life. I feel like a lot of people bring discrimination on themselves by getting in people’s faces too much. They like to say: ‘Accept me or else!’ They go around demanding respect as a member of a group, instead of earning respect as an individual. And that sort of behavior invites discrimination. I’ve never demanded respect because I was gay, and I haven’t experienced much discrimination when people find out that I am."

"Hi, I’m a cis white dude. Turns out, I have a ton of cultural capital even though I’m gay. Whodathunk?”
