this week has been such bullshit w a couple of nice exceptions
this is not what I want
Just before nightfall I decided to take a walk outside. The sky was low, enveloping any object in its reach. It formed a dull, purplish haze - like nothing I’d seen before. The streets were empty. Not a single soul was out. It was oddly peaceful - imagining I was the only one left.
This video is so, so important. A Jewish girl, and a Muslim girl, both poets, deliver a powerful piece on stereotypes.
Forget what we’ve been indoctrinated to think by our parents, schools, communities, religions and governments. We are all human. Let’s be the generation of peace.
Hilda Doolittle (1886 - 1961)
- Bisexual American Poet, novelist and memoirist who published under the name H.D.
- rediscovery of her works in 1970s, showing an unapologetic sexuality, and questioning of the gender roles, made her an early icon for feminists at the time.
- Her work is said to be an exploration of the conflict between lesbian and heterosexual attraction and love, resembling her own life - she would typically have female lovers in addition to her current male companion - and vice versa. In 1918, she met her lifelong lover and collaborator: Winifred Ellerman - Aka “Bryher”
- Was the subject and friend of Sigmund Freud in reseraching and understanding Bisexuality [1930’s].
There is way more to this story than this short entry. Though as you all know that I am really not a fan of Freud and early analysis of bisexuality, H.D. is a very important and often forgotten part of bi history.
you will be okay maybe it will be tough but you will come out the other side eventually just hang in there
