The sun is shining down at a noticeably different angle today. Oktoberfest beers are available on the ‘seasonal’ taps. Pumpkin Spice caffeinated bullshit is apparently nigh. And so, this is how I feel.

(Summer’s not really over YET, of course, but I just wanna beat up the ocean in defiance.)

A comprehensive guide to help the unwitting visitor avoid falling victim to the various and nefarious crimes abound in early 19th-century London. Written by “a gentleman who has made the police of the metropolis an object of enquiry twenty-two years”, the book is split into six main chapters: “Out Door Delinquencies”, “Inn Door Tricks”, “Miscellaneous Offences”, “House-Breakers”, “Minor Cheats”, and “Of Conspirators and Informers”, containing within them a multitude of sub-chapters including the rather wonderfully titled offences of “Smashing”, “Greeks and Legs”, “Private Stills”, “Bon Ton”, “Box Lobby”, and “Pretenders to Literature”.

I’ve written some on depression. Don’t really have anything new to say. But I just wrote this email to a friend which expresses my feelings today.

As women, we should not have to live our lives with this Sword of Damocles hanging over our heads as to whether or not our partner is going to be human or an animal. We shouldn’t have to try to not provoke. In some relationships, anything becomes a provocation—saying something, saying nothing, how you dress, how you act, how quickly you do or don’t answer the phone, your tone of voice, how you clean the house, how you drive the car, how you look someone in the eyes, how you avoid looking someone in the eyes. There’s always a finger on the trigger.

[…] I’m not trying to make any grand pronouncements about domestic violence. This is not an issue we can neatly intellectualize. Relationships are complicated. Shit happens. People fuck up. People endure. People hurt people. But, don’t think violence is acceptable. Don’t think there is any circumstance that justifies what Ray Rice did. Don’t think that if we’re all good girls, if we’re properly meek, if we don’t provoke our men, we’ll be safe. Good girls get hurt all the time.

We are not the problem.

My junior year of college, I fell hard for Jeff. That’s not his name. I’m not brave enough to use his name. I wish I was brave enough to use his name.

Since high school, I’d been in love with John. That is his name. He was my first everything, and my whole world. But John…

This Tumblr is so important, y’all.

The Israelis and Hamas this time have crossed the Rubicon. There is some kind of psychological marker that they have crossed, and they are not going to quit until we don’t know when.

Stuart Willcuts, the director of Mercy Corps for the West Bank and Gaza

I’ll be honest: I’m very concerned about this (more seriously than I have ever felt before) and I can’t even choose sides. I just have to sit by and hope for the best.
