Pinned toot

Ok since everyone introduced themselves.

My name is Eesha. On Birdsite formerly as @Helga_HuffPuff and then as @ParadoxicalPari. I'm a writer focusing primarily on gender, sexuality, and women's rights and have worked with one of India's biggest media houses. My views are left of center and interests are history, languages, and political philosophy.

Also I'm loving the never-ending character limit here! This place is awesome!

I haven't been as active here as I am on BirdSite because:

1. Some of the people I follow (especially celebrities) have not migrated here yet or are more active there.

2. It is easy to descend into the rabbit hole of bitchfights with trolls. I know I came here to escape that and I must work more actively to avoid it.

3. I just don't think I have as much of a reach here as I do on BirdSite? Post engagement is lesser here it seems.

@audreytruschke Professor, could you recommend some readings on Hindus' relations with Buddhists and Jains in ancient India? Thank you.

Hindutva ideology has blood on its hands. Every saffron fascist is a criminal waiting to happen. Mark out your enemies now and keep your children far away from them.

I saw Fathima Lathif's picture. What a beautiful girl with a rainbow for a smile and eyes full of sunshine. I imagine she was a brilliant, talented pupil with so much ambition and hope.

No sane human with a heart would think of hurting such a person, unless he were bloodthirsty, maniacal Brahmanwadi fascist with genocidal tendencies. A beast of this nature would have no problem driving an 18 y/o to suicide.

Am I being wicked here @ParadoxicalPari ?

Dard/darr ke mare...aadhe se ho gaye hain.

Hai na?

People who are shitting on protesting JNU students for resisting a fee hike deep down also think that liberal arts education is pointless.

It's this whole education based elitism which engineers, doctors and MBA bros suffer from. Layered with privilege and casteism too.

Alright who's gonna join me in raising funds for a huge 120-foot penis to be erected on the five acres, jispe likhaa hoga muh me le lo milord

What are the things which make you feel good when you are sad? Which give you hope?

Those that are slaves of the moment see only misery and wretchedness. This is because they look only at the wall and door of the room, whereas they should look beyond such barriers as are set before them.

Liberals, on the other hand, support the oppressed in principle but tend to evaluate the aggression of the oppressor and the oppressed with the same scale. That is the root of arguments like "workers shouldn't strike", "musanghi", "all lives matter", "not all men" and others.
