let’s be less than human together

let’s talk about how tough it is to exist

let’s shut the fuck up for five hours

let’s not say one word for five whole hours

let’s become clouds in the distance
of our respective bodies

let’s be messed up bodies in various spaces

let’s queer this shit up

let’s stand in the wind and say ‘this is nuts’

let’s drink a lot of water

let’s watch yr old house from afar
looking like a cartoon
behind the haze of distance

let’s be we

let’s suffer through whatever happens

let’s come out on the other side a new thing

let’s be several things

let’s never stop becoming more and more things

let’s appreciate being alive in the small moments
that we’re afforded that privilege

let’s be alive for as long as we can

let’s be five hundred birds who are very alive

Shakuntala Devi was featured as Google’s doodle for today. And while this is rather nice from a perspective of Feminism, let me tell you what isn’t so nice…
She died earlier this year and I didn’t hear a single peep about it. In fact, I didn’t even know she existed until today because her accomplishments were never taught to us in school. This woman was probably an inspiration to many in the world and she completely smashed the sexist idea that STEM subjects are for men and social ones are for women. In the 1900s, no less.
Yet somehow the news of the deaths of male actors and musicians earlier this year was viewed by our society as worthwhile enough to spread in-person.
This is what feminists are talking about when we say that women and social minorities have been systematically erased from history. If it wasn’t for Google, no one here would have known about Shakuntala Devi and her accomplishments, including myself.
  • family: why won't you come with us?
  • me: there must always be a stark at winterfell
