you kids these days with your rapidly growing concern for the state of the world and your knowledge of important issues at increasingly younger ages despite having been told your opinions don’t matter by the adults who put you in these situations

pilferingapples asked: WHERE. WHERE IS THAT.

Here is the one I bought.  But I definitely recommend looking through this whole collection of waistcoats, and heck, look at the entire website; it has EVERYTHING.  Prices seem fairly reasonable too.

Update on the waistcoat situation: ONLINE WAISTCOATS HAVE BEEN LOCATED.  I WILL TAKE TWELVE PLEASE AND THANK YOU.

I have serious plans to acquire this waistcoat.

The waistcoat has been acquired.  Or rather, the waistcoat company has acquired my money.

Last night I had a vivid dream that there was a strike at some business near my school (the dream did not provide these specifics), so I skipped class to join their protest rally.

These are the kind of dreams I have. They are very exciting.

art-and-barricades asked: So, this History of Romanticism book that you are currently reading. Do you recommend it to those who share your interest in Actual Romantics? I ask because it appears readily available for free downloading on the internet...

pilferingapples:

YES ABSOLUTELY, I do recommend it! There are a lot of good stories and people you won’t hear discussed elsewhere mentioned. It’s super readable too! I mean, it is of course a very very subjective account, as memoirs tend to be, right, but that’s valuable itself.
(Actually, to maybe digress a bit— one of my favorite things about it is how insistent Gautier is on the importance of people who were important to the movement, that is, the social aspect, as much as the people who’d been dubbed Artistically Significant, because hey, artists don’t magically generate in a social vacuum. I was joking about his modesty last night, but honestly, he and Nerval and Hugo were already the main Big Names of that first group, and he could have shorted everyone else and played himself up a LOT. Instead he’s really devoted to telling everyone about his awesome friends and how much fun they all had, and it’s painfully sweet and REALLY USEFUL as a reference.)

Thank you!  The book has been acquired, and I plan to read it as soon as possible.  I can tell you right now, though, that the table of contents is quite interesting—there appears to be an entire chapter about “The Legend of the Red Waistcoat.”  I am looking forward to this book.

Update: Here it is available for free download on Google Books, if anyone is interested! (And from what I hear, you should be.)

I returned yesterday from the strange, surreal world of a Model United Nations conference, where sleep-deprived teenagers subsisting on Starbucks drinks shout about national sovereignty and send each other foreign-policy-themed pickup lines, and where I either contracted or exacerbated a case of the common cold and/or THE PLAGUE.  (Would someone please give me an award for Best Debating of International Food Policy While Running a Fever and Coughing In Between Every Speech.)

So, as I am to spend my entire afternoon lying on this sofa without the energy to put the time to any constructive use, I will now accept any and (almost) all random questions, assorted commentary, headcanon talk, etc.  I will answer as best I can in my current state of Barely Functioning.

We are not your punchline. We are not your punishment.

I’m going to say that again. Queer people? We do not exist to provide punchlines in straight people’s stories. We do not exist to punish straight people for the error of their ways. Life is not a fairy tale, and we are not supporting characters in someone else’s morality play.

I don’t hope that Mugabe has a queer kid. I don’t hope that the WBCers do- although it’s highly unlikely that all of their kids will grow up cis and het. For their sakes, I hope that they do.

I don’t want queer kids to be born into families that hate them, so that they can do the work of converting their families to our cause. I want queer kids to be born and raised by families who love and cherish them for exactly who they are. I want the to grow up knowing that whatever the rest of the world will throw at them for being queer- and it will- they always have somewhere safe to come home to.
