Inspired my my dear friend Ali over at Mean Fat Girl, I want to expand upon her post That Thing Thin People Do. The thing is, we see you, thin people. You think you’re being OH SO SUBTLE in your little judgements and smirks and insincerity towards us, but there’s one thing I can promise […]
And use the intelligence you were born with.

I have nothing to add, except to reiterate my contempt for the government and bewilderment at the 23% of the electorate that actually voted for these vicious people.

In a world where one’s understanding of the natural world and society is one founded on a complex web of dynamic relationships nothing can be treated as a lone object operating in isolation. All things depend on and influence each other.
A post I found on Gods and Radicals that I think is important.
Also, I’m going quiet for a few more days. When I come back it should be with a selection of book reviews.
