Love does not equal ownership

This is sooooo right on.

Here is what the heck happened: You guys broke up… What additional “closure” could she have given? What kind of explanation would satisfy? Breakups are painful, and we don’t always understand the reasons for them, but after a four-month romantic attachment ends I don’t think the person is responsible for all of your feelings literally YEARS later.

Posting this in solidarity with all of my sisters and brothers out there who have ever feared humans who objectify other humans. Awesome to see this critique being articulated.

“We need to talk about Facebook”

Ithaca Freeskool class tonight:

Freeskool class on Tuesday, February 4th 6:00-8:00pm at TC Worker’s Center, 115 E. MLK st.
We Need to Talk About Facebook, do we not? Do you remember that science fiction distopia?… The one where social life is consolidated into an electronic data cloud owned by a powerful, military contracted corporation? For crying out loud, this sounds familiar! This discussion-based workshop gives Facebook a hard look and explores alternative platforms for community and sense of place.
