Canadian music festival takes huge step against Native appropriation

Follow micdotcom 

From their announcement:

For various reasons, Bass Coast Festival is banning feathered war bonnets, or anything resembling them, onsite. Our security team will be enforcing this policy.

We understand why people are attracted to war bonnets. They have a magnificent aesthetic. But their spiritual, cultural and aesthetic significance cannot be separated.

Bass Coast Festival takes place on indigenous land and we respect the dignity of aboriginal people. We have consulted with aboriginal people in British Columbia on this issue and we feel our policy aligns with their views and wishes regarding the subject. Their opinion is what matters to us.

See is that so fucking hard?

There is apparently a street in San Francisco called Back Alley Way.

  • Gina: Is it just me, or are Herc & Carver kinda the Tweedle Dee & Tweedle Dum of The Wire?
  • Ivy: Oh, totally!
  • Later:
  • Ivy: Wait, so him being gay *doubles* the price of the bounty on his head?!

the To Do List (as it were)

The two big things I’ll be doing with my week before I leave San Francisco for 3 months are:
1) Finishing up my application for a $10k individual artists’ grant due Friday (plz plz plz plz PLZ pray for me &/or think good thoughts about this in my/The Money Bestower’s direction), and
2) Making fairly surreal queer cripple porn with a comrade & colleague whom I could not be more honored & pleased to work with… at an amusement park!

Way to go out with a bang, I guess?

So incredibly pleased with this new haircut! #curlscurlscurls

Question for Portland sex workers from a soon-to-be-visiting sex worker (feel free to respond here or to message me directly!)

Hello, sex work-ing folks in Portland! :) I will be living in Portland from August-October. I am guessing that the answers to my questions here will probbbably be summed up with “LOL NO”… But I’m wanting to ask just the same on the off-chance that I’m wrong. So:

Are there any strip clubs in Portland that hire fat dancers? Or even clubs that have employed fat dancers in the past? Are any of you fat strippers working in Portland? Or do you know any fat strippers in Portland who I could talk bizness with?

Some context: I am a fat person (I’m about a dress size 18) who has been working in the sex industry on & off for the past 12 years (mostly in porn and as a pro-switch, but I’ve dabbled in most areas of the industry). I genuinely love dancing, and I’ve always been bummed that strip clubs in San Francisco (and, y’know, in general) are pretty intensely sizeist. I have been told that there are hella strip clubs in Pdx (like, enough of them for there to be a fair amount of diversity amongst them, from what I’ve heard). If any strip clubs in Pdx hire fat dancers, I’d potentially be interested in auditioning.

If the answer to my question is “yes” (again, I’d be kinda shocked if it was, but why not ask): I am additionally wondering about more general audition/work/etc tips.

Also, if you don’t wanna answer me here publically, that is totally cool, feel free to just message me directly.

  • It’s called Master of the Universe.
  • It was originally published on Fanfiction.net (aka where fanfiction goes to die).
  • E.L. James’ pen name was Snowqueens Icedragon because of course it was.
  • Snowqueens Icedragon does not use quotation marks. 
  • She does, however, make up expressions like "my very small inner goddess sways in a gentle victorious samba" and “I can almost hear his sphinx-like smile through the phone.”
  • They spend more time filling out sex-related paperwork than they do actually having sex.
  • This is my reaction to all of the sex scenes:
  • image
  • Because the human body doesn’t work like that
  • This is my reaction to everything else:
  • image
  • Because the english language doesn’t work like that.

The 50 Shades of Grey trailer just dropped, so here’s a link to the original Twilight fanfiction that the book is “based” off of, because if you’re gonna read the book before you see the movie you might as well read it in its original format. 

SEX PAPERWORK OH MY GLOB

MY INNER GODDESS NEEDS TO READ THIS FANFIC
