Lima was lovely - quite run down in parts but then also intensely colourful, all slightly dingy candy colours, lots of yellows, powder blues and pinks and lots of old colonial detailing (really elaborate casement windows in dark wood and so on) which Amy and I fell slightly in love with.

eee-in asked: You're actually a fucking retard

oh you

eee-in:

yeah, and “backup boyfriend I can lead on and use like a doormat for when the douchebags I do date aren’t around .” isn’t a mans default mode either. 
the friendzone exists. and females are the more entitled ones in that situation and I’m going to tell you why
who’s more entitled. a guy who makes genuine romantic advances to a girl he likes in order to win her affection
or the girlt hinking that she deserves all of it without reciprocation and thinks that he should stick around and be her “friend” when in reality that means he’s basically a backup for when option B doesn’t work out.
see it’s not that she’s mad at you for saying you’re in the friendzone, she’s mad at herself for turning down a decent guy, and the fact that she has basically lost her backup (aka, you)
So don’t give me this bullshit “he only wanted to sleep with me” because you know that it’s so far away from the truth
you’re a woman who thinks she deserves A B C and D and your boyfriend used to give you all that but now he only gives you b and d ao you want him to give you the A and C and stay with your douche boyfriend because you like his D.
and that’s all it is

This screenshot (of a truly great tweet which sadly I can’t take any credit for - I was just an appreciative audience member) has probably been my most popular post so far in my ~tumblr career~ and I suppose it’s encouraging that it’s taken until now to get reblogged with this kind of laughably (if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry) predictable commentary. 
Seriously though, look at this misogynistic ‘slut-shaming exists for a reason' moron go!

Some outlets are now questioning the authenticity of the news that emerged from Iraq yesterday about the Isis FGM edict - can anyone confirm?

"We take home and language for granted: they become nature and their underlying assumptions recede into dogma and orthodoxy. The exile knows that in a secular and contingent world. Homes are always provisional. Borders and barriers, which enclose us within the safety of familiar territory, can also become prisons, and are often defended beyond reason or necessity. Exiles cross borders, break barriers of thought and experience."

Edward Said  (via arabellesicardi)
