So my subscription to SG is almost up, and unfortunately I'm not in a position to renew it at the moment. It's been real, guys!

Now, before I go, I was hoping that perhaps I could do some begging/pleading/groveling. In a few weeks, I will be taking part in THE AMAZINGLY QUEER RACE FOR ECONOMIC JUSTICE (which is organized by QUEERS...

God I love racial profiling! I'm at SKY HARBOR waiting for my flight, and this one bitch won't take her eyes off me. She has this extremely fucked up glare plastered on her face and I don't really appreciate it. >.< I should be used to it by now...but I'm not. My father and I both have slightly Middle Eastern features...

good ole sky harbor

@ Squee - Thanks! :-) I really should be used to it by now...I mean...I was in New York City on 9/11. I guess I just want to believe that people can change and overcome their biases. Apparently that's asking too much.

@Schweitz - Ah yes...good ole Sky Harbor. :-) The kicker is that I've never had problems flying through there before...this is the first time anyone has given me any shit. I understand we're all on high alert after what happened in NYC this past week, but there is a difference between being vigilant...and just being bigoted.

For me, it's a little worse. I always wear a chain my fiance gave me (which has two small pendants-- a chai and a hamsa). Couple that with my middle eastern features, and people think they have a right to judge me.

I am just your average, dark skinned Hispanic who is completely and totally in love with Israel. :-) What's so wrong with that?

So...who knows anything about where I could miraculously get $11k for school?

IN OTHER NEWS...

Yay for softball tonight! It's the department team's first game. I get to hit things with bats! :-D

Yikes.

It's this economy.

Not sure how I feel about this...

On the one hand, I understand that these things do take time...


...but are you really affording Indian women any semblance of agency when your main character is STILL situated in the home and has her identity defined in terms of her relationship to a male "superior"?

Is this how you want to frame the idea that a...
