I feel some kind of way about all these white women writing poems and posts about “feminist dragons” and “monstrous femininity” without

a) acknowledging how Black women have been writing and theorizing and making art about these concepts for a long ass time

alliefaithers:

When you send a girl home from school because her shorts or too short, or her clothing is immodest, you are telling her that hiding her body is more important than her education. You are telling her that making sure the boys have a distraction-free learning environment is more important than her education. In a way, you’re telling her that the boys are more entitled to an education than she is, and that isn’t acceptable.

The other day I had a really good idea for a story:

A high school Shakespeare club angrily splits into two groups when they can’t agree on the correct interpretation of Romeo and Juliet. One group thinks it’s a cautionary tale about the stupidity of youth and…

FROM THE VAULTS:
Greek Mythology Reworked

Ulysses, James Joyce
She would follow, her dream of love, the dictates of her heart that told her he was her all in all, the only man in all the world for her for love was the master guide. Come what might she would be wild, untrammelled, free.
The Secret History, Donna Tartt
It’s a very Greek idea, and a very profound one. Beauty is terror. Whatever we call beautiful, we quiver before it. And what could be more terrifying and beautiful, to souls like the Greeks or our own, than to lose control completely? To throw off the chains of being for an instant, to shatter the accident of our mortal selves?
The Penelopiad, Margaret Atwood
I picture the gods, diddling around on Olympus, wallowing in the nectar and ambrosia and the aroma of burning bones and fat, mischievous as a pack of ten-year-olds with a sick cat to play with and a lot of time on their hands. ‘Which prayer shall we answer today?’ they ask one another. ‘Let’s cast the dice! Hope for this one, despair for that one, and while we’re at it, let’s destroy the life of that woman over there by having sex with her in the form of a crayfish!’ I think they pull a lot of their pranks because they’re bored.
The Early Poems, Alfred Lord Tennyson
It may be that the gulfs will wash us down: It may be we shall touch the Happy Isles, And see the great Achilles, whom we knew
Endymion, John Keats
Until, from the horizon’s vaulted side, There shot a golden splendour far and wide,Spangling those million poutings of the brine With quivering ore: ‘twas even an awful shine From the exaltation of Apollo’s bow; A heavenly beacon in their dreary woe.
The Song of Achilles, Madeline Miller
"Name one hero who was happy." I considered. Heracles went mad and killed his family; Theseus lost his bride and father; Jason’s children and new wife were murdered by his old; Bellerophon killed the Chimera but was crippled by the fall from Pegasus’ back. "You can’t." He was sitting up now, leaning forward. "I can’t." "I know. They never let you be famous AND happy." He lifted an eyebrow. "I’ll tell you a secret." "Tell me." I loved it when he was like this. "I’m going to be the first."

SZA feat. Kendrick Lamar “Babylon”

I’ve been looking forward to SZA’s debut since I peeped her Carefree Black Girl steeze in “Ice Moon" and now it’s finally here and it’s beautiful and full of Black girl genius. Listening to the free stream of “Z” while looking at SZA’s Vogue photos inspired me to deep condition my hair so you know it’s real.
