I'm a philosophy student that tends to post about really serious things unseriously and about really unserious things seriously.
I was once described as a "beautiful, intelligent iguana".
unrelated but now there’s a bill in arizona that says a person enters personhood two weeks before the parents even have sex. so now you exist before you even fucking exist.
Yes I read about that it’s fucking bullshit and Arizona continues to strive towards awfulness
About this. It seems like it claims that every woman is pregnant at all times under all circumstances (or at least that’s the logical conclusion).
If this passes, I hope that everyone in Arizona (that can) tries to take some time off because of maternity leave. Just fucking everyone take maternity leave. It would be awesome.
Just be like “according to this bill, I’ve been pregnant for [insert current age here] years. I’m pretty sure the baby’s about due. I need time off.”
Step 1: Write about people who aren’t white.
Step 2: THERE IS NO STEP TWO.
You will very rarely see me curse, tumblypoos, but…but…I mean, what the fuck? How is this even possible? This reads like an Onion article.
To be clear, it is now ILLEGAL to teach de la Pena’s novel (which I’ve read and which is excellent) in schools, not because the book contains violence or drug use or massively unerotic blow jobs, but because it contains Mexican American characters. (The protagonist of the novel is only half Mexican, but apparently that is too Mexican for Arizona.)
That’s it. That’s the whole reason it can’t be taught in schools.
The fact that the bill, as the article says, explicitly outlaws anything under the header of ‘critical race theory’ shows just how bad this entire thing is. I’ve mentioned this before, but Freire’s “Pedagogy of the Oppressed” is outlawed through this bill, and that personally makes me more sad than anything, because I find that book to be an absolute masterpiece.
The fact that they’re censoring anything on such spurious criteria is pathetic though.
