England, Facts, and Food: Sixteen Films & Ken Loach @KenLoachSixteen Followv #1 Danie!Blake "I am not a client, a customer, nor a service user. I am not a r, a scrounger, a beggar nor a thief. I am not a national insurance number, nor a blip on a screen. I paid my dues, never a penny short, and was proud to do so. I don't tug the forelock but look my neighbour in the eye. I don't accept or seek charity My name is Daniel Blake, I am a man, not a dog. As such I demand my rights. I demand you treat me with respect. I, Daniel Blake, am a citizen, nothing more, nothing less. Thank you." a. Dr Lauren Gavaghan Followv DancingTheMind A England: homelessness up 60% since 2010 A rough sleeping up 134% ▲ 1.2 mill people on social housing wait list Food bank use up 4-fold since 2012 now 2,000 food banks in UK, up from just 29 at height of financial crisis #UNVisit2018 #IDanie!Blake is fact, not fiction. Dr Lauren Gavaghan Fllow DancingTheMind For anyone who doubts how realistic #IDanielBlake is, I urge a re-read of the 2018 UK poverty report by Prof Philip Alston, UN Special Rapporteur on human rights & poverty. It speaks volumes on the cruelty of this Conservative govt. @JamesCleverly you may want a refresher INT liiA Dr Lauren Gavaghan Ф @DancingTheMind Dear anyone who thinks they will vote Conservative when we have a #General Election please read the below report from UN Rapporteur on extreme poverty & human rights before you cast your vote.... Show this thread thasminlove: politicalsci: If anyone hasn’t watched ‘I, Daniel Blake’, it’s on BBC iPlayer for the next 18 days or so. Please do watch it if you can. It’s a film about ordinary, lovely, kind British people who due to unfortunate circumstances beyond their control have to claim benefits, and struggle through the system. It explores their lives and the benefit system in a realistic, humane way, and sticks to the facts. This happens to thousands of people across the UK regularly, and, as you will see, is completely inhumane. Be prepared with tissues.

Advice, America, and Bless Up: The moment you tell her to 'go get it! Say bruh have u ever craved flaming hot Cheetos covered in nacho cheese and jalapeños with a sundae next to it that has mangoes, ice cream, sprinkles, a banana and a whole bunch of other sweet delicious things that don’t necessarily go together? “Smash is u pregnant? U suppose to be a man? Where these cravings come from?” I am a man and I am not pregnant cot damn it is called leg day at the gym and my quads jello RN and this place is real asf it is called La Michoacana 🍦😍. You do not have to be carrying a baby to enjoy this heavenly place, but if you are, it probably make it that much better 🤰🏻. You can find these joints everywhere. There are a bunch in Chicago and they are splendid. “wow smash you really gon stunt on us like that, I live in Bombacrab Missouri, we don’t have anything that spicy here.” BISH YES U DO, LOOK 👏 FOR 👏 THE 👏 MEXICANS 👏😂. I been telling y’all they got treasures for days u just gotta be exploratory. Perhaps a Mangonada? Lil mango wif chamoy sauce, mangos, lime juice, chili powder? “HOT SPICES ON FRUIT SMASH U EITHER WILDING OR U REALLY MEXICAN.” well I am not Mexican so that mean I am wilding, yes, AND? 😂 just put in ya mouth. personally I eat a$$ so I’ll try anything once ... my palette very experimental 🥳. The worst that can happen is that you love it and then you start making mangonada for yourself and then put on your tinder profile that you make a mean mangonada and you get swiped by a young investment banker named Julio who grew up around Mexico city and then got a degree in engineering and moved to America to kill it in banking and now you getting married and taking trips first class on his frequent flyer miles and your friend Megan is like “damn my boyfriend Jim is still sleeping on my couch, playing fork knife on my TV and stealing money out of my purse how did you get to be balling like this?” And you can say I took smash’s advice and started making spicy mango drinks and now I’m pregnant with my third mixed baby and we going to Paris next month. Boom! Bless up 😍😂

Memes, Loans, and Thailand: Why isn't she trying to imitate our hair texture like the rest of them? I am a heterosexual man with heritage from different places in the world, my skin is brown, I am politically black. I know we are all from Africa. I honestly wonder sometimes, well a lot of the time actually; What would life be like if my skin was darker and I was a woman. You see the dark woman is the creator of the human race, scientists say this, not me. Yet if you look at the way women with dark skin are treated the world over, you would think that humans are ungrateful for being created...Look at how dark skinned women with natural hair are treated in the west, east, north and in south, you will see that there is a conspiracy against them. From birth the world tells them that they are worthless, in India, the Americas, Africa, Thailand, Australia, basically any Island with sun, where dark skinned women are indigenous... The lighter skinned people of the world clearly fed up of their colder countries, wanting hot countries, minus the native people. Unless they want them for service or for sex. I know dark skinned men are murdered by police and locked up in prisons for their whole lives, I know that rich crazy men wage wars against Dark skinned men... But however bad dark skin men have it, dark skinned women have it worse. I am a man so I have gender privilege over women, this is a fact, the statistics don't lie. Dark skinned women always back dark skinned men, but it doesn't always happen the other way around. Statically if you are a dark skinned woman you have a higher chance of getting paid less for the same job, you will encounter racism if you live outside of Africa, then even within Africa itself you will probably experience it too, you have a higher chance of getting raped, you will be misrepresented in the media, you will be objectified and demonised, you are less likely to be given a loan for a business, you are more likely to be locked up than a lighter skinned woman... Structural violence. Yet you are the reason that we are all here. I think the world is scared of the power that you have, the power that you are. This is why they oppress you. Most of human existence is fake power, constantly forced and reinforced.

Being Alone, Books, and Confused: Toni was one of those women it was impossible to pin an She could've been anywhere from eighteen to thirty-five. Her skirt showed enough leg to make him think younger. Her manner and the cadence of her voice made him think older He heard a quick snort of laughter from Anne's cubicle. She was the one bright spot in the office. She was another temp like him, with the cheekbones, eyes, and body of a model. Her hair stretched down to her waist. Anne had been at the office for eight months now. Xela wasn't naked, he realized, just topless. Her bikini bottoms didn't hide much, though. Her body was lean, and her arms and shoul- ders had three or four tattoos each, or maybe one elaborate one. He didn't want to let his eyes drift down far enough to check. Her sky- colored hair dusted her shoulders. She'd gone the extra step and dyed her eyebrows, too. notice him. There'd been no more sightings of the farmer's daughter blonde who lived across the hall. sashayed: You guys, you must stop doing this. You must. We cannot keep yelling at you about it because it makes us so angry, and we are already angry all the time, about real things, like how our lives are turning into a real world Handmaid’s Tale, ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha ha ha. We cannot keep spending our energy being mad at mediocre men for writing mediocre books that inexplicably win awards and that people tell us to read, for some fucking godawful who knows reason. So men. My guys. My dudes. My bros. My writers. I am begging you to help me here. When you have this man in your workshop, you must turn to him. You must take his clammy hands in yours. You must look deep into his eyes, his man eyes, with your man eyes, and you must say to him, “Peter, I am a man, and you are a man, so let us talk to each other like men. Peter, look at the way you have written about the only four women in this book.” And Peter will say, trying to free his hands, “What? These are sexy, dynamic, interesting women.” And you must grip his hands even tighter and you must say to him, “ARE THEY, PETER? Why are they interesting? What are their hobbies? What are their private habits? What are their strange dreams? What choices are they making, Peter? They are not making choices. They are not interesting. What they are is sexy, and you have those things confused, and not in the good way where someone’s interestingness makes them become sexy, like Steve Buscemi or Pauline Viardot. Why must women be sexy to be interesting to you? The women you don’t find sexy are where, Peter? They are invisible? They are all dead?” He is trying to escape! Tighten your grasp. “Peter, look at this. I mean, where to begin. ‘She could have been any age between eighteen and thirty-five?’ There are no other ages, I guess? Do you know what eighteen-year-olds really look like, in life? Do you know what forty-year-olds look like? And not that this is even the point, but why are these sexy, dynamic, interesting women BOTHERING with your boring garbage ‘on the skinny side of average’ protagonist? Why did you write it like this, Peter?”  And maybe Peter will say at last, “I don’t know.” Maybe he will be silent for a long long long time, and then maybe he will say, “I guess it’s scary and difficult for me to imagine the interiority of women because then i would have to know that my mother had an interiority of her own: private, petty, sexually unstimulating, strange: unrelated to me and undevoted to my needs. That sometimes I was nothing to my mother, just as sometimes she is nothing to me. That I was not at all times her immediate concern.” “I know, Peter,” you can tell him gently. “I don’t want to know that my mother was a human being with an internal life, because to know that would be to risk a frightening intimacy with her,” Peter will say, maybe. “Because to know that would be to know that she was only a small, complicated person, no bigger or smaller than I am, and I am so small. To know how alone she was. How alone I am. How alone we all are. That my mother survived with no resources more mysterious than my own. And yet she gave me life. My God: she gave me life. How can I pay her back for that? How can I ever, ever give her enough to repay her for my life, every day of my life?” He will be sobbing probably. “I am frightened of her. I am frightened of loneliness. I am frightened of dying. O God. My God. I didn’t know. I didn’t know.” Drool will run from his mouth as he cries. The way babies cry. He will be ashamed. You must hold him. You must say, “Shh, Peter. Shh.” Wrap your man arms around him. Hum into his thin hair as your own mother hummed once into your own sweet-smelling baby scalp. Kiss him gently on his mouth. There. You did it, men. You fixed sexism. Thank you. You’re the real hero here, as always, you men, and your special man powers, for making art.
