multiply diasporic with my roots in Tamil Eelam and my feet currently in melbourne, australia. i spend most of my time organising, studying, crocheting, drawing, reading, working, skyping, posting. i also like picking my teeth with the bones of small-l liberals.
You stand in line for hours to have the chance to sit across from Marina Abramović (The Artist is Present) and you weep. You stand in line for hours to see Kara Walker’s A Subtlety, or the Marvelous Sugar Baby. You wait to enter the soon-to-be-demolished Domino Sugar Refinery and in this place that links you to sugar’s pleasures and histories and presents of slavery, coolie labor, colonialism, imperialism, death, and displacement and you cut up.

So please, people, don’t go out of your way to link me to that shit. I do not need the reminder.
addendum to this memo: don’t send me messages asking me what are my thoughts/provide you with some deep insightful commentary
treating daily acts of oppression like its an intellectual circle jerk is a microaggression in and of itself
All men benefit from women’s reinforced fear of being hurt for saying no.
