so ugh, I’ve been avoiding getting into the wacky world of BPAL for a looong time because I just, idk, I just heard about it everywhere and I thought the idea of all those scent blends was a little twee and over the top (like Adagio teas like wow let’s just throw away our business model and cater to Superwholock fandom teas??) but Carrie got an order with some really nice smelling samples and now I’m just like UGH DAMMIT I WANT TO SMELL LIKE A FOREST CREATURE
so now I don’t know if I want to order some imps or not. hmm.
related to that last reblog:
anyone trying to shoddily extrapolate the solidarity happening between Palestine and Ferguson into “Bad Jews Part Of The White Power Structure” and/or anyone who cannot or will not differentiate between the human rights abuses by Israel in Gaza and the lives and opinions and efforts of the vast multitude of Jewish people around the world…
well you need to stay the hell away from me because I will not tolerate that antisemitic bullshit on my blog or in my relationships.
okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
nothing but love and respect for the people of gaza they’re in the middle of a genocide and they’re trying to help the people in Ferguson protect themselves against tear gas
if you’re interested, this person is trying to organize a food/meal drive for elementery school kids in Ferguson.
schools in Ferguson have been closed since Monday and that’s where a LOT of the kids in Ferguson get their food from, to explain how important this is.
I’m trying not to post too much about what’s happening in Ferguson because I’m not there, and even though I’m from St. Louis I’m not from there and I /can’t/ understand what these people are going through, but all the same like, god, it’s too close to home, way too close, and I’m so grateful to everyone sharing info on this heinous injustice. I’m praying for my family and friends back home, for the safety of everyone bravely standing up to a terrorist police force, but most of all I’m praying for justice. Real justice, and the hope that someday this country might be a safer place for people of color.
