Betwixt and Between

Ask me anything... within reason.  

A fun, sexy four-way of social activist thinking, animals, funnies, and sex things.

INTELLECT and ROMANCE over BRUTE FORCE and CYNICISM!


shitfacedanon asked: Didn't a bunch of Turkish Muslims try to help Palestinians and their boat was boarded and several of them shot by Israel?


Answer:

socialismartnature:

It was a Turkish boat carrying aid workers from an array of countries [including, actually, some personal friends of mine]. They were bringing humanitarian supplies into the besieged Gaza Strip. Israeli soldiers boarded the unarmed ship by force off the coast of Gaza, and opened fire, killing nine people and injuring dozens more.

Help! There Was A Gay Wedding! What Do I Do Now?

thatbadadvice:

Emily Post’s Etiquette Daily, 23 July 2014:

Q: My nephew, who is gay, just got married in Massachusetts. do I send a card or a gift or both? How do I acknowledge the event?

Who even knows? Gay people are aliens, their customs may be very different from ours. Better not risk it.

Sylvia and Ted “interrupted in a spat,” Chalot Square, London, July 25, 1960 photographed by Hans Beacham for a portfolio of images of British writers

"They were sullen. Hughes was rude. He was going to get more attention than she, and she didn’t like that while he did. He invited me outside and told me I needed to know that he loathed photographers". Hughes particularly wanted to keep Plath out of the way. "His wish, of course, forced me to photograph them together", Beacham said; and later; Hughes acknowledged that he had been "an ogre."
