I rarely see this mentioned so I wonder if people just don’t realize what a national travesty Mt. Rushmore is.
The Black Hills is sacred land to the Oglala Lakota tribe. The Oglala Lakota used to own that land through a treaty with the U.S. I mean, it was their land pre-white-colonization, but then the US started to colonize it and later gave the Black Hills back to them through the Treaty of 1868. Once gold was found on the land, however, prospectors migrated and set up shop in the 1870s. The government took back the Black Hills land, because of the gold. In 1927, Mount Rushmore was constructed into the hills.
In simple terms: the colonizers stole the Oglala Lakota’s land, “gave” it back, found out it had capitalistic value, took it again, and then carved their own leader’s crinkley-ass white fucking faces into the mountains that were considered to be sacred, like do you realize how fucking MONSTROUS that is????
ughhh I tentatively agreed to go on a date but I am ugly and my hair is falling out and the guy is probably lame anyway.
also I’m having dreams about weddings gone awry again. WHY
soda: you are sweet
beer: you are cool
wine: you are old
tea: you are classical
coffee: you love coffee!
coffee is accurate. I pretty much force-feed Community Coffee Dark Roast to anyone who enters my apartment because YOU HAVE TO HAVE IT.
thank you. I guess it’s pregnancy season because I’ve been seeing gender reveal parties on my facebook feed almost weekly.
"I believe that the lack of respect for the industry has much more to do with pure sexism than anything else. What could be more frightening to the establishment than an organized group of women with the intelligence and the financial leverage to say what they think? And they think that love wins. How dare they? How terrifying. We must subject them to ridicule."
I actually did fun social things on my days off this week and it feels like I’m on vacation or like my life is normal for once and it has been so good
water isn’t supposed to make you nauseated :(
MORAL CRISIS: do I want to accept the risks involved with buying final sale items from ModCloth when there are no returns/exchanges on them?
some of you have liked or reblogged my posts about lymphoma and chemo.
if you’re interested, I wrote a much more detailed post about getting halfway through chemo over on my other blog:
