Too 20/20 To Pay Attention

July 24, 2012

Try as the news and various blogs might, and I simply cannot pay attention to the massacre in Aurora, Colorado. Do you know why? Because nothing will change. NOTHING! Men buy guns. Men steal guns. Men murder other people. White men are sympathized with and individualized and parsed out from the collective. Black men are collectively deemed savages and animals for mimicking the very same behavior.

Waiting for the shoe to drop. I heard it already, before, last time, long ago.

Thud.

The book is thrown at Marissa Alexander.

Mother, it is your fault.

No daughter, it is your fault.

Hey girl, it is your fault.

Save the rapist, he may be raped!

Did something happen?

    Plus ongoing murderous terrorism against lesbians.

    I’m really spun by it. Is there a collective female consciousness operating anywhere, beyond the tiny bits we see on the internet?

    So, when do we buy a house (or pirate ship) and start our all-woman co-op/collective? Should it not be in the United States? Because, nothing’s keeping me here… there is nothing for me.

      Ooof! Definitely down for the collective but can we keep it on land pleeeese. Can’t rejoice in the revolution if I’m puking my guts out.
