  • Appropriated the struggle and culture of the poor despite coming from a well-off family
  • Had the czar and his entirely family killed solely because they were monarchs, which they were born into and had little control over
  • Called religious belief a “deception” which is very…

So.

How does that excuse murdering children, pray tell?

oh my god just fuck off

Telling me to fuck off won’t erase the blood of the Romanov’s children, hoss. Shit, when even Daisy Fitzroy thinks you’re too extreme ya got problems.

"In particular, let us not underestimate the extent to which, by the very sight of the judicial and executive procedure, the wrong-doer is himself prevented from feeling that his deed, the character of his act, is intrinsically reprehensible: for he sees clearly the same kind of acts practised in the service of justice, and then called good, and practised with a good conscience; acts such as espionage, trickery, bribery, trapping, the whole intriguing and insidious art of the policeman and the informer—the whole system, in fact, manifested in the different kinds of punishment (a system not excused by passion, but based on principle), of robbing, oppressing, insulting, imprisoning, racking, murdering.—All this he sees treated by his judges, not as acts meriting censure and condemnation in themselves, but only in a particular context and application."

David Wojnarowicz wore this jacket in 1988, just 4 years before he’d ultimately die from AIDS. Sadly, just a few years ago some of his artistic work was censored at the Smithsonian. People in power are still content to try and erase his history and the continued struggles of people with AIDS

friendly reminder that “queer” is a slur and has the definition of “odd” or “to ruin” and SOME people have reclaimed it for themselves but NOT EVERYONE so saying things like “queer community”, “queer movement”, “queer rights”, “queer women” etc doesn’t make sense

What so the queer movement doesn’t exist? Or the queer movement is not allowed to refer to itself? What are you saying?

i’m saying tons of people do NOT want to be grouped in with “queer” and some are even triggered by it. LGBTQIA+, MOGAI, GSRD, non-cis/straight are clunky but better alternatives.

i know, ‘queer’ seems like a nifty word, but it is not devoid of political context, and i will not lump together people who don’t want to be referred to as queer just bcuz of my own preferences.

Queers definitely exist though. The queer movement definitely exists. I don’t think “I don’t like the way you identify so stop” is in any way legitimate.

"The most recent figure of the priest is the psychoanalyst, with his or her three principles: Pleasure, Death, and Reality. Doubtless, psychoanalysis demonstrated that desire is not subordinated to procreation, or even to genitality. That was its modernism. But it retained the essentials; it even found new ways of inscribing in desire the negative law of lack, the external rule of pleasure, and the transcendent ideal of phantasy. Take the interpre- tation of masochism: when the ridiculous death instinct is not invoked, it is claimed that the masochist, like everybody else, is after pleasure but can only get it through pain and phantasied humiliations whose function is to allay or ward off deep anxiety. This is inaccurate; the masochist’s suffering is the price he must pay, not to achieve pleasure, but to untie the pseudobond between desire and pleasure as an extrinsic measure. Pleasure is in no way something that can be attained only by a detour through suffer- ing; it is something that must be delayed as long as possible because it inter- rupts the continuous process of positive desire. There is, in fact, a joy that is immanent to desire as though desire were filled by itself and its contempla- tions, a joy that implies no lack or impossibility and is not measured by pleasure since it is what distributes intensities of pleasure and prevents them from being suffused by anxiety, shame, and guilt. In short, the mas- ochist uses suffering as a way of constituting a body without organs and bringing forth a plane of consistency of desire. That there are other ways, other procedures than masochism, and certainly better ones, is beside the point; it is enough that some find this procedure suitable for them."
