How then can one expect the state to solve the problem of violence against women, when it constantly recapitulates its own history of colonialism, racism, and war? How can we ask the state to intervene when, in fact, its armed forces have always practiced rape and battery against “enemy” women? In fact, sexual and intimate violence against women has been a central military tactic of war and domination.
Yet the approach of the neoliberal state is to incorporate women into these agencies of violence—to integrate the armed forces and the police.

Girlfriend & Muse
Bianca Jagger (nee Bianca Perez-Mora Macias) [05.02.45]
"I am not just a celebrity, I’m a human-rights advocate, for the last 20 years."
"I wasn’t attracted to Mick for physical reasons, I found him shy, vulnerable, human—the opposite of everything I had ever imagined. It sounds silly, but it was like a bolt of lightning." - on her relationship with Mick Jagger.
"I find it disturbing that the media keeps referring to my marriage, since I got divorced in 1979. But the media never wants to let me forget."
"At first I thought Bianca was just some bimbo. She was also quite aloof for a while, which didn’t endear her to anybody around us. But as I got to know her, I discovered that she’s bright, and what really impressed me later on, a strong lady. She became a mouthpiece for Amnesty International and a sort of roving ambassador for her own human-rights organization, which is some achievement. Very pretty and everything like that, but a very forceful character." - Keith Richards

sorry but children younger than her in the middle east get blown up by drones purely because of their proximity to suspected terrorists, i don’t really care about a dutch teenager getting arrested for sending a “joke” threatening tweet to an airline while claiming to be a member of al qaeda because she thought her obvious positions of privilege would protect her from any and all consequences

I keep forgetting what the differences are in the over the counter pain relievers, so I made a handy chart.
NO NO NO NO NO NO NO TUMBLR SCIENCE IS BAD SCIENCE.
Use of NSAIDs—such as aspirin and ibuprofen—is a leading cause of peptic ulcers.
This is one of the main reasons I avoid painkillers whenever I can, unless the pain is unbearable and preventing me from doing something important. Such a shame about ibuprofen though because it’s a really effective pain reliever.
