anarchacannibalism:

ko-muriwai-ahau:

sesqui-pedalian-ism:

Pronunciation: oo·too
Noun. Recompense, satisfaction.
Origin: Maori, (New Zealand) 19th Century.
Sometimes, occasionally, seldom but not never, language can be tiresome. Not dull (NAY!) but wearying on the physical apparatus with which we animals create sound. With today’s loquacious world forcing many people in many occupations to crank and grind their voice box several thousand times a day, the Average Josephine trudges home from work with lockjaw. She plugs herself into her personal music device, desperately inundating her parched aural senses, and shutting out any attempt at human interaction imposed upon her. Simultaneously she fondles her briefcase to engage her tactile senses– anything to return the slumping scale of human senses to equilibrium. This world is severe on the mute. From Cockney market vendors (“2 pence a paand!”) to mythomaniacal lawyers to Namibian bushmen; it seems to survive one must flap and flail and pontificate the very tongue from out your mouth. Oh! to be a banker; no coin in your coffer but the slackest of slack jaws in town! So, when you finally return to your house or flat or cave, and you sink rapturously into a perfectly-heated bubble bath, accompanied by some erotic memoirs, the dulcet tones of some soft jazz, and a bottle of the finest booze available to mankind, you want the sound you blissfully emit to be the very last of the day, and here is the perfect articulation: ‘utu.’ From the laid-back people indigenous to New Zealand, the people who only count up to five, anything above being deemed simply “many”, this marvelously painless word requires only one menial mouth position and a quick fricative of the tongue to utter. This tiny word carries great meaning, namely ‘recompense,’ perhaps for the suffering your voice has endured throughout your day, and ‘satisfaction,’ perhaps in its small way, telling us that satisfaction should not be complicated. So recline, relax and find your utu.

lmfao what????????Utu: (noun) revenge, cost, price, wage, fee, payment, salary, reciprocity. Utu maintains balance when different people/groups exchange something. It applies to hostile and friendly exchange and does not have to be acted on immediately. Utu is linked to our mana as Māori and your ignorant, idyllic and racist appropriation of our language shows how little mana you have. This is not a “marvelously painless word” it has a deep set history within our contact between tribes and with our colonisers. It comes from our history as warriors and protectors of our families and our land, from our loss and the destruction of our culture. Idk where you got your info from or if you even know us Māori can count past five and speak English? But gtfo if you think this is a celebration of “lavish language”…Recline, relax and do some fucking research!  

Wow this is Really Aggressively Racist congratulations OP! this is the most condescending racist bullshit ever! like this is fucking disgusting! i’m astonished you managed to make this absolute piece of shit!

this is the dumbest fucking thing i’ve ever read. How much more painfully ignorant could you get

When I start to get emotional I immediately think “I’m so gay” and this is because straight people actually don’t have emotions

this is false and heterophobic. straight people have a panorama of emotions including:

  • outrage
  • jealousy
  • Situational Benevolence (aka “don’t fight hate w/ hate”)
  • sports
  • umami, the “Fifth Emotion”
  • TGIF

10 year old Yemeni girl smiling after she was granted a divorce from her husband- a 30 year old man
Here’s what I found after looking into it. 
Nujood Ali was nine when her parents arranged a marriage to Faez Ali Thamer, a man in his thirties. Regularly beaten by her in-laws and raped by her husband, Ali escaped on April 2, 2008, two months after the wedding. 
On the advice of her father’s second wife, she went directly to court to seek a divorce. After waiting for half a day, she was noticed by a judge, Mohammed al-għadha who gave her refuge. He had both her father and husband taken into custody.
Indeed, publicity surrounding Ali’s case is said to have inspired efforts to annul other child marriages, including that of an 8 year old Saudi girl who was allowed to divorce a middle-aged man in 2009.
But in 2013 Ali reported to the media that her father had forced her out of their home and is withholding her money granted by publishers. Her father has also arranged a marriage for her younger sister, Haifa.
Also this girl has her own book

I just want some feminists to focus more on this than on defending Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian.

Realistically, what can they do? Most of the feminists that you likely encounter are based in USA, Canada, maybe UK. What can they do to affect attitudes and policies in a place like Yemen?

They can raise awareness. Tumblr is a global site where you can donate to people in many countries to aid them. A very good thing they can do, for one, is set up donations for this kid or other kids. They can put efforts to start up shelters for such incidents. There’s a lot of things western feminists can do. This post only has almost 9k posts, whereas a post about male tears has 36K.
