Dresses are so nice they’re just tubes of fabric you can throw on with very little effort and when you wear one and people are like “oh wow you dressed up you look really nice” but it’s like

So the other day, in a fit of boredom, I decided to test the old adage that ‘you catch more flies with honey than vinegar’. Despite a promising start for the vinegar with a fly lurking near it on Day 1, you can see both options have caught precisely zero flies. I can draw no other conclusion from this than that fly-catching is a fruitless endeavour, and we must embrace nihilism. Or, alternatively, buy one of those fly-catchers from the supermarket. I’m not really sure.

Pumzi - dir. Wanuri Kahiu // Kenya

In a dystopian future 35 years after an ecological WWIII  has torn the world apart, East African survivors of the devastation remain locked away in contained communities, but a young woman in possession of a germinating seed struggles against the governing council to bring the plant to Earth’s ruined surface.

The main character is a museum curator in the future and also yes I would like see this now please

THERE IS NOTHING ABOUT THIS I DON’T LIKE

The complete short film is on youtube and it’s really good and the end kind of took my breath away.

Early in March 2013, I became aware of the Tweets calling out victim-blamey attitudes. At the time I thought the #hashtag (sometimes appearing as #ladies, other times as #women) was being humorously hijacked away from victim-blaming folks. Do you know if #safteytipsforwomen was around before you started #ladies? or did it morph between the two?

Hi!

I didn’t know people were really using the #safetytipsforwomen hashtag - I hadn’t checked that one - though I checked and it looks like there are a mix of people who are using it seriously (urgh) and some who were using it sort of in place of the #safetytipsforladies hashtag (which is the one that I started with and really blew up, I think). It’s very possibly it existed beforehand.

I don’t think there was anyone using #safetytipsforladies seriously/unironically (I vaguely recall checking before I started it and there was one tweet from a travel website) - I did start it solely as an exercise in humour/rage, so no, it wasn’t ‘hijacked’ as I’ve seen reported elsewhere. That said, the fact that so many people did think it was started unironically - and that there are tweets here and there using the hashtag or #safetytipsforwomen actually unironically - speaks volumes. You could say it was a cultural hijacking of an all-too-common idea, even if the hashtag itself wasn’t started in seriousness.

Also, the reason I chose ‘ladies’ instead of ‘women’ was precisely because the term ladies is often used in a condescending, advice-giving manner. When I started tweeting with it I certainly did not expect it to go viral, and I also have to give credit to the fact that so many women took a hold of it and made much funnier jokes with it than I could come up with!

I hope that helps!
