So I'm going to swing by Powell's to pick up some books for the reading room, but I think I have a friend I can get books from Amazon delivered to for the camp, and I was wondering who are some Latinx writers who probably won't be at Powell's who you think I should add?
(Powell's is super huge, so like who are some relatively unknown #ownvoices Latinx writers, especially queer and/or trans Latinx writers, whose work you think just really needs to be read who I will probably only find ordering online?)
(psst @benjanun_s you know like everybody, can I beg a suggestion from you?)

Just going to share some quotes in no particular order
"In "Embodying Citizenship," Paul Filmer linked this process to the beginning of citizenship in the early modern period in Europe. He argues,
"Through competent bodily action, the individual can bring their body to a condition in which relations with other, comparably reflexive embodied individuals can be sustained in ways stable enough to make social and political order possible."

I started reading this thesis paper today that I found on google scholar if you want to read along with me!…
I would EXTREMELY recommend this paper to anyone interested in talking about film so far? I'm only up to like page sixteen.
It's sixty pages about and it's about the representation of the body in Nazi film. If you know me, you know this is EXTREMELY my kind of topic so I, of course, am way into it so far.

I put videos on in the background while I draw so that I don't have to pay attention to them, and I've got an old one from Lindsay Ellis on about the Wicked Witch of the West and it made me realize that we're probably going to have to talk about Miss Piggy at length soon.
Because if ever there was a character that is ripe for discussion in fat studies, it is Miss Piggy.
The video reminded me that when she plays the Wicked Witch, Miss Piggy's initial reaction in the melting scene is happiness because she's getting skinny.

Okay, the most telling thing to me about the trans student being locked out of both locker rooms during the shooter drill is: why would the locker rooms need to be gender segregated during a shooting?
It's just such an obvious communication from the school to the student that there is no protection, no safety there.
"Excuse me, miss, I know the building is on fire, but this is the men's fire escape, you'll have to go down the hall to the women's fire escape." Please make this make some sort of sense to me.

I spent five bucks on a new (to me) textbook and I'm so excited to read it that I'm already searching for companion texts to go with it so I guess I should stop pretending I'm not the biggest nerd I know.
I sometimes like to think not that I am cool but that I used to be and it's some sort of protective but looking back I think I was just drunk and I was still like this about books
I accept this is just who I am

I watched the new Doctor Who and it was definitely different. I felt like there were some tonal problems at the end but my experience with this show so far is mostly the classic series so I was kinda like "wow toothface guy is a pretty intense villain for this show"
Overall I liked what it sets up and look forward to more episodes with this Doctor but this particular adventure felt a little off to me
It's not even that I didn't like the plot! It was very good actually! It's just that I kept feeling kind of distracted by how dark the adventure was in a show I largely understand as The Doctor Goes to a Goofy Ren Faire Planet
