Navy Pier = visiting Iowans; Argyle is indeed where you can get legit pho; and Loyola Chicago campus as “Jesuit-Approved College Antics” it’s all so accurate I can’t. I’ve lost my ability toucan.
NO. NO IT DOES NOT. AT ALL.
I myself must agree with Ms. Lennox and prefer a more global perspective of feminism instead of the more western-centric 3rd wave. Another quote directly from Annie Lennox’s blog:
Feminism is mainly focused on women’s issues, but author bell hooks and others have argued that, since feminism seeks gender equality, it must necessarily include men’s liberation because men are also harmed by sexism and gender roles.
why do you have a white last name? you're black. as fuck.
It’s actually French!
@ anon most black people in Diaspora people have “white” last names…You know because of that whole slavery thing.
I live in the U.S. I’m white (Polish and Scottish ancestry) and have a very Scottish surname (it’s most common in Aberdeenshire - represent). However, according to the U.S. Census, it is a predominantly African American surname over here. Why?
There were a ton of Scots Irish slave owners in the antebellum south. After emancipation, former slaves were finally granted the dignity of a surname. They got to pick their own surname and a majority chose to either keep that of their slaveowner, or chose a famous last name like presidents Washington, Jackson, etc.
So if a surname is particularly common for Scots Irish or other ethnicities considered white, think how there were a ton of white slaveowners, and most of them had multiple slaves that were eventually emancipated. Bam! Tons and tons of new family trees started after the Civil War. When you figure there were more freed slaves than slaveowners, you realize there are traditionally “white” names that are often considered “black” names in the United States.
Denzel Washington, Michael Jackson, Orlando Magic guard Ben Gordon, just to give a few examples.
Not sure if the costume company didn’t even try or just a Jersey Boys/Happy Days crossover featuring Fonzie imitating Tommy DeVito.
…Or is it a The Drifters as seen in Beautiful: the Carole King Musical crossover?
Annie and Tali Lennox in New York.
So I take it Annie didn’t blow a gasket over Tali’s septum ring? (I mean, she can hide her tattoo if she ever wanted to, but her septum ring is never flipped up.)
Damn, my mom would’ve blown a gasket. I guess Annie’s more like
❝ I like her, I’d like to go out for a drink with her. ❞
I showed this to my dad. He agreed it would be wise to start carrying around full sized Snickers.
I’ve never read a description on those “spirit animal” pages I could relate to but this one actually made sense.
I’m allergic to most dogs but I guess one made of a mist-like substance wouldn’t be a problem.
