@charlesatan well NOW I will@tellmeastory314 one of its writers just went on an imaginary shopping trip with a character from a wes anderson movie@eleilani83 great point.@monicabyrne13 Polyamory is dangerous simply because it allows non-male genders to dissociate sexualities from property.

Retweeted by Monica Byrnethere's a monica byrne who's a fashion designer. I wrote her once to say I loved her dresses. never heard back. shouldve signed "hoi polloi"also true story a couple days ago I got an invoice for $32,662.50 for diamonds. lulz. wrong monica byrne.@photomattmills it's a film. if you watch it, let me know what you think.I can make it about 2/3 of the way through VOGUE until the absurdity overwhelms the fantasyjust finished PALINDROMES. maaaaaaayn and y'all are mad at me for The Girl in the Road? Sheeeeyet.@ThomasMartens yes. deeply satisfying.@monicabyrne13 I -like when whitewashed casting is "justified" by the star system, then the movie crashes, like Exodus: Gods and Kings.
Retweeted by Monica Byrne@monicabyrne13 I always call the serious fall movies Supportive Wife Season. Great actresses sidelined.
Retweeted by Monica Byrne@ClearShakes one of my exact points in writing this about TGITR. :) right also add the fucking chess movie, whatever it's called@ClearShakes yep. wanted to dredge the global numbers to drive home the point re: exoticism of white i'm going to fucking shower & think about a world where we all just stopped going to see these movies & then the world would much money goes into this fantasy that whitedudes are the center of humanity. so. much. money.going to make a guess that whitedudes make up ~9% of humanity yet star in ~75% of hollywood movies that have ~98% of the money behind every one of these trailers, everyone else is an afterthought. everyone but the whitedude. everyone supports his journey.meanwhile whitedudes shoot up our schools and campuses and theaters because they don't have the women they feel entitled to.& in every single one of these trailers the whitedude looks imploringly into a woman's eyes for understanding for his obsession/redemption.and if your first instinct is to reply "but [x] is actually about [x]" or "[y] is actually really [y]" you're missing the fucking point.i am so sick of seeing nothing but whitedude narratives from hollywood. stonewall. steve jobs. burnt. the martian. the walk. fucking ENOUGH.@connerk yes--I did too, but my pt is it's first a search & then a multi step process. shd be enter address --> polling place --> done.Goodnight puddle. Goodnight sun. #Durham yeppppp me too. On both sides of that one.@SFFFan42 then I rip him a new one and don't talk to him again. it's happened.furthermore, I absolutely do not pursue married men unless one or both partners have made it clear they're open. so chill.dear monogamous married men who are dickish to me because I represent a "threat": don't do that. I'm not to blame for your insecurity.@wes_chu Ah, I hear ya. I was an athlete until age 18. Then stopped everything. Started a Renaissance at age 32. :)@wes_chu Then you gotta lift, bro. ;)@wes_chu What results are you looking for?@y_kidd GOOD IDEAlet me know when a self-maintaining house goes on the market and then i'll consider buying one#IsBritainRacist? Is that a serious question?@duskyliterati Like, "enter address here" --> polling location and hours@duskyliterati I know that, it's just a multi-step process when it should be instantaneous.Dress #77 of 96. Voted Jillian Johnson and Steve Schewel for Durham City Council. Dress by American Apparel. voting precinct and location within seconds on the Internet. That is how a huge portion of the population now works. @DurhamCountyOK, @DurhamCounty, really? Nobody keeps track of a piece of paper they got in the mail weeks ago. You need to have a way ppl can look up...@verlaine0181 fiiiiiiiiinally, yes, there's sun!@DurhamCounty It'd be super helpful to post a page where people can look up their polling place in a few seconds. Been looking for 10 min
@bethmeacham @Luvvie Damn, I didn't know that. Only context was the David Bowie song 😞looks like the Suffragette movie can go exactly the way of Stonewall bc whitewashing; i.e., fuck it the future is intersectional or nothingLondon. 1911. Women of color alongside white women fighting for voting rights. Suffragette movie didn't include any
