Thoughts for an accelerated culture

Disenfranchised youth in the South-East of England; the king blues, protest, knowledge, help others,anarchy, Banksy, street art, the media

There’s no fucking future for anyone but the privileged anymore, education needs to be for everyone, we need jobs, houses, and all they want us to do is pay our taxes, shut the fuck up and gratefully eat X-Factor. It makes me sick to my gut. Banker bonuses and politicians claiming thousands for their fucking duck ponds while they sweep the homeless off the streets and hose down where they’re sleeping, taking away benefits while two and a half million people are unemployed, leaving empty houses to rot and trying to outlaw squatting during a homeless crisis.


~ Johnny Itch Fox, February 2012 (via culturecritiques)

”Murder, crime, poverty - these things don’t concern me. What concerns me are celebrity magazines, television with five hundred channels, some guys name on my underwear. Rogaine, Viagra, Olestra. I see all this potential and I see it squandered.

God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas and waiting tables - slaves with white collars.

Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don’t need. We’re the middle children of history. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We’ve all been raised on television to believe that one day we’d all be millionaires and movie gods and rockstars. But we won’t. We’re slowly learning that fact.

And we’re very, very pissed off.

—Tyler Durden

I’m pro-life

Before you attack me, I’m also pro-choice and in favour of contraception. Those who are “pro-life” do not believe in abortion and often are against contraceptive methods. Bringing new life into a world filled with orphans and children that need help…that need a life.

You’re not pro-life, you’re pro-fucking-birth.

I’ve now personally experienced two girls being sexually assaulted/harassed since January and only because I happened to be in the right place at the right time. It’s hard to know what to do.

1.
I say, ‘I am fat.’
He says ‘No, you are beautiful.’
I wonder why I cannot be both.
He kisses me
hard.

2.
My college theater professor once told me
that despite my talent,
I would never be cast as a romantic lead.
We do plays that involve singing animals
and children with the ability to fly,
but apparently no one
has enough willing suspension of disbelief
to go with anyone loving a fat girl.
I daydream regularly
about fucking my boyfriend vigorously on his front lawn.

3.
On the mornings I do not feel pretty,
while he is still asleep,
I sit on the floor and check the pockets of his skinny jeans for motive,
for a punchline,
for other girls’ phone numbers.

4.
When we hold hands in public,
I wonder if he notices the looks —
like he is handling a parade balloon on a crowded sidewalk;
if he notices that my hands are now made of rope.

5.
Dear Cosmo: Fuck you.
I will not take sex tips from you
on how to please a man you think I do not deserve.

6.
He tells me he loves me with the lights on.

7.
I can cup his hip bone in my hand,
feel his ribs without pressing very hard at all.
He does not believe me when I tell him he is beautiful.
Sometimes I fear the day he does will be the day he leaves.

8.
The cute hipster girl at the coffee shop
assumes we are just friends
and flirts over the counter.
I spend the next two weeks
mentally replacing myself with her
in all of our photographs.
When I admit this to him
we spend the evening taking new photos together.
He will not let me delete a single one of them.

9.
The phrase “Big girls need love too” can die in a fire.
Fucking me does not require an asterisk.
Loving me is not a fetish.
Finding me beautiful is not a novelty.
I am not a fucking novelty.

10.
I say, ‘I am fat.’
He says, ‘No. You are so much more’,
and kisses me
hard.

The Fuck It Point

"When you have had enough. When you decide to take matter into your own hands and don’t care what’s going to happen to you."

There are far too many young women in my life who have been raped or sexually abused.

This is a picture of two homeless people sleeping in a tram stop at 1.30am. It was taken in Munich - one of the richest cities, in one of the richest regions, in one of the richest countries, in one of the richest regions of the world.

Act now. Stop taking the shit governments, elites, financiers and predator multinational company CEO’s give you. Rebel, fight back, resist.
