    people in other parts of the country use the word “anymore” in a much wider variety of grammatical environments and with a broader range of meaning than people from my part of the country. in particularly, using it at the beginning of a sentence always reminds me of where i first encountered that particular usage: reading some chuck palahniuk novel at age like 20. there’s no other way to put this: people who say “anymore” at the beginning of a sentence remind me of chuck palahniuk

    this was so baffling to me the first time i read palahniuk and i just thought it was some hamhanded faux-vintage affectation of his because i had literally never encountered it before (or since, actually) and was totally unable to parse it. it created a massive speedbump in every sentence in which i encountered it. i am vaguely aware now that it is in use outside of my cascadian dialect bubble but still cant really parse it

    chuck palahniuk is one of four authors we are supposed to put security tags in every single copy of every single one of their books at my work because they get ripped off so much. the other authors are kerouac, bukowski, and hunter s thompson

    lmao

Someone at the Associated Press must have come in to work still drunk from last night because they accidentally tweeted out the truth, but the mistake was quickly discovered and they apologized.

    “We went to Kineshma, that’s in Ivanovo region, to visit his parents. I went as a heroine and I never expected someone to welcome me, a front-line girl, like that. We’ve gone through so much, we’ve saved lives, lifes of mothers, wives. And then… I heard accusations, I was bad-mouthed. Before that I’ve only ever been “dear sister”… We had tea and my husband’s mother took him aside and started crying: “Who did you marry? A front-line girl… You have two younger sisters. Who’s going to marry them now?” When I think back to that moment I feel tears welling up. Imagine: I had a record, I loved it a lot. There was a song, it said: you have the right to wear the best shoes. That was about a front-line girl. I had it playing, and [his?] elder sister came up and broke it apart, saying: you have no rights. They destroyed all my photos from the war… We, front-line girls, went through so much during hte war… and then we had another war. Another terrible war. The men left us, they didn’t cover our backs. Not like at the front.” from С.Алексеевич “У войны не женское лицо”

    In Soviet Union women participating in WWII were erased from history, remaining as the occasional anecdote of a female sniper or simply as medical staff or, at best, radio specialists. The word “front-line girl” (frontovichka) became a terrible insult, synonimous to “whore”. Hundreds thousand of girls who went to war to protect their homeland with their very lives, who came back injured or disabled, with medals for valor, had to hide it to protect themselves from public scorn. 

    This has always happened in history: Women do something important. Then they get shamed for it (so nobody will talk about it) and it gets erased from history.

    And then certain men will say: “Women suck, they’ve never done anything important.”

    Look into history and learn that women have played a far greater role then douches (present and past) wanted you to know.

    Hey Will (and Jack) I got you something.

    So this is important. Let me tell you a story.

    All the time I spend debating about women in combat, I’ve picked up on a trend that disturbs me. Supporting or attacking, people are quick to draw on biology, psychology, law, but very rarely - almost never - do I hear about the history of women in combat, and the evidence their service lends to this debate.

    Hundreds of thousands of women faced combat in WW2, and on both sides, and on all fronts, and it is a history that has been almost completely erased from contemporary awareness. I have been given arguments about how women can not psychologically handle combat. And about how women in mixed-gender combat units will automatically disrupt group cohesion - the brotherhood, if you will. Both of these assertions are erasure.

    Women have not lived in a protective bubble untouched by combat for all of history. Women have been killed, wounded, and captured in combat, and tortured after. We are not living a world where these are hypothetical situations women have yet to prove they can handle. Unfortunately, they have, they can, in the future, they probably will, again and again. Soviet women served as partisans, snipers, tank drivers, fighter pilots, bombers. And more.

    Both British and American women served in mixed-gender AA units. I could drag you through several examples of British women performing exemplarily despite being wounded, or seeing their comrades die. The Luftwaffe did not discriminate. Between the British and the Americans, it was determined that mixed gender units actually performed much better than all male units, because of teamwork. Because women are better and certain tasks, men are better at certain tasks, and at other tasks they are comparably efficient, and in a team, hopefully, in combat, you let the best do what they are best at. For the most part, they were proud to serve together. 

    German propaganda never commented on the British AA units, but they thoroughly smeared the Soviet fighting woman - flitenweiber. People often argue with me that women are a threat to group cohesion because men naturally give women preferential treatment. Which certainly explains why men are more likely to survive shipwrecks. And history shows us that Germans soldiers had no chivalrous compunction when it came to shooting captured Soviet women who were armed.

    We’re fed a history of war that almost exclusively features white male figures, most of whom fit into this destructive constructed myth of the soldier that is somehow both chivalrous and charmingly womanizing and who’s sense of brotherhood is unshakably dependent on the band being all man. There is no history of woman at war, none. I hear a lot about how women have no upper body strength, I hear nothing about the Front-Line Female Comrade.

    THE WORD FRONTOVICHKA BECAME A TERRIBLE INSULT - are you fucking kidding me? Fuck, that made me cry. At first when I started reading I thought I was reading alernate history fiction. I’m ashamed to be ignorant about this, and full of rage and much worse bitter shame that this history is constantly repressed, suppressed, hidden. WHAT THE FUCK. D: D: D:

    I didn’t know that bit about the AA (Anti-Aircraft) units.

    And even in this article I don’t see a mention of the women of the Israeli Army, or women of the resistance if we’re just sticking to WWII.  I didn’t know about the Russian soldiers, only the fighter pilots, the night witches, and I’ve spent years poking into the corners of history trying to find women who will serve as ammunition when men tell me women can’t fight. 

    The best explanation I’ve heard of what happened to women after WWII comes from “A League of Their Own,” the publicist’s character: “What is this—the war is over, Rosie, turn in your rivets?”  Women all over the world had to step into the same old ruts.

    I don’t think it’s any mistake at all that Betty Friedan wrote her ground-breaking text for the second wave of feminism, THE FEMININE MYSTIQUE, just 10 years after WWII, after women had dined on a full plate of the same old, same old.

    And shame on the men who never stood up for the women who worked and fought beside them, and saved their lives.

    There were Soviet AA units that absolutely wrecked the Nazis on several occasions. I was reading about them recently because the most recent Jucifer album has some pieces about them. and women in WWII in general.

  • surgery fundraiser update

    jobhaver:

    I am 7.63% to my goal, which means i am getting very close to having 10% of the funds necessary for my facial feminization surgeries.

    Thank you so much everyone who has donated. those of you who are close to me online or who know me in real life know how important having this is to me, to treat my sex dysphoria as a trans woman, and for how long I have felt hopeless and dejected by my inability to fund this myself.

    I am hoping to reach 10% on this by the end of the week, and I encourage you all to donate if you are able and otherwise continue to share my posts about this.

    Additonally, I have had a few people want to donate to my fund but have problems with the gofundme site and I want to make it clear that you are also able to donate to my fund via paypal using my email address: rebeka.refuse@gmail.com. Funds sent via paypal will not show up on my gofundme page but will still go directly to the savings account where I am keeping my surgery funds and be put toward expenses from my surgery.

    the link is here if you want to donate or share 👍
