All of my finals have officially been rescheduled. i was suposed to be done with the semester by 10am tomorrow, now its gunna be Sunday night at the latest till i’m done with crap. Can we just not and say we did? I don’t think anyone will complain….
Final project in Fibers. It says “Love Yourself Like Kanye West Loves Kanye West”. The theme for the assignment was Dreams and I think it should be the dream of everyone to be as self-confident as/love themselves as much as Kanye loves himself. Yep. Then I tweeted it at him cuz i’m classy.
How I really feel about the UNT Rap “Anthem”:
1) Why are the only people rapping white?
2) I get that dancers need to move, but it bothers me that the only students dressed in professional clothing are also all white.
3) I only see two races represented here and we have SUCH a diverse campus this is completely not representative of our student body.
3) For a school that’s renowned for it’s music program, the music track for this is so shitty it’s embarrassing.
4) Our RTVF dept. is probably stabbing their collective eyes out over some of the washed out shots in this.
5) The lyrics shouldn’t be calling out other schools like a challenge, I know I would much rather hear more in-jokes about the campus and it keeps us from looking like dicks.
Seriously, this was clearly designed to be marketing for UNT and not done a group of students. I know had they put more time and effort into finding better composers, etc. this would have been amazing. Everything that comes out to represent this school should be jaw-droppingly awesome because I know we have the talent to back it.
Sums up my feels nicely.
So this is legit my groups mascot for our Feminism class. Did we need to have a mascot? Maybe not, but we just like to go above and beyond like that. You’re welcome world.
Although, I am kind of judging, both myself and the world at large, for the fact that I could google “Sparkle Grudge Slime Font” and the very first link was exactly what I was looking for….
An excerpt from Jennifer Baumgardner and Amy Richards’, Manifesta: Young Women, Feminism and the Future
1. To out unacknowledged feminists, specifically those who are younger, so that Generation X can become a visible movement and, further, a voting block of eighteen to forty-year olds.
2. To safeguard a woman’s right to bear or not to bear a child, regardless of circumstances, including women who are younger than eighteen or impoverished. To preserve the right throughout her life and support the choice to be childless.
3. To make explicit that the fight for reproductive rights must include birth control; the right for poor women and lesbians to have children; partner adoption for gay couples; subsidized fertility treatments for all women who choose them; and freedom from sterilization abuse. Furthermore, to support the idea that sex can be - and usually is - for pleasure, not procreation.
4. To bring down the double standard in sex and sexual health, and foster male responsibility and assertiveness in the following areas: achieving freedom from STDs; more fairly dividing the burden of family planning as well as responsibilities such as child care; and eliminating violence against women.
5. To tap into and raise awareness of our revolutionary history, and the fact that almost all movements began as youth movements. To have access to our intellectual feminist legacy and women’s history; for the classics of radical feminism, womanism, mujeristas, women’s liberation, and all our roots to remain in print; and to have women’s history taught to men as well as women as a part of all curricula.
6. To support and increase the visibility and power of lesbians and bisexual women in the feminist movement, in high schools, colleges, and the workplace. To recognize that queer women have always been at the forefront of the feminist movement, and that there is nothing to be gained - and much to be lost - by downplaying their history, whether inadvertently or actively.
7. To practice “autokeonony” (“self in community”): to see activism not as a choice between self and community but as a link between them that creates balance.
8. To have equal access to health care, regardless of income, which includes coverage equivalent to men’s and keeping in mind that women use the system more often than men do because of our reproductive capacity.
9. For women who so desire to participate in all reaches of the military, including combat, and to enjoy all the benefits (loans, health care, pensions) offered to its members for as long as we continue to have an active military. The largest expenditure of our national budget goes towards maintaining the welfare system, and feminists have a duty to make sure women have access to every echelon.
10. To liberate adolescents from slut-bashing, listless educators, sexual harassment, and bullying at school, as well as violence in all walks of life, and the silence that hangs over adolescents’ heads, often keeping them isolated, lonely, and indifferent to the world.
11. To make the workplace responsive to an individual’s wants, needs, and talents. This includes valuing (monetarily) stay-at-home parents, aiding employees who want to spend more time with family and continue to work, equalizing pay for jobs of comparable worth, enacting a minimum wage that would bring a full-time worker with two children over the poverty line, and providing employee benefits fro freelance and part-time workers.
12. To acknowledge that, although feminists may have disparate values, we share the same goal of equality, and of supporting one another in our efforts to gain the power to make our own choices.
13. To pass the Equal Rights Amendment so that we can have a constitutional foundation of righteousness and equality upon which future women’s rights conventions will stand.
Why yes, one of our readings for Women’s Studies class was a link to a Tumblr post.
