Beautiful House Built On A Flatbed Trailer
This 196 square feet home is remarkably designed and built. On top of a 24x8foot flatbed trailer, recycled or reclaimed materials were used to construct a much cheaper and beautiful residence. Wooden pallets are used for the siding and the roof is of elastomeric or expanded aluminum. Every inch of the interior is used to the maximum. Carefully picked decorations complement the all white interior paint.
A large living and kitchen area share the space with a large comfortable bed on top of shelves and storage facilities. A combination of brick and wood panels and wallpaper make you notice all the little decorations that make the whole place livable. The interesting 3 piece lamp, above the cozy lounge chair, challenges the uniqueness of the lights above the stove and kitchen sink. All in all, this way of building a home is cheaper than a full house, and it also gives you a little bit of mobility as well.
i just think its disgusting that if i don’t take on the responsibility of constant beauty rituals (make up, hair removal, etc) then people will think i’m trying to be masculine. like. if i’m not constantly making changes to my natural state, THAT’S when i’m deviating from what’s “natural” and correct and normal? it makes no senseNot only that, but you’ll be considered less competent and intelligent.
coming out to your parents
If you try for one second to tell me the X-Men isn’t an allegory for the gay rights movement, I will smack you. They weren’t even remotely subtle about this.
The mutants have always been an allegory for anyone that didn’t fit in to society. The folks who drew the comics made a point of that early on.
It’s not just the gay rights movement, its not just kids trying to “come out” to their parents. Its people being mistreated by the government, put away, forced to pretend to be “normal”, systematically oppressed, even killed for who they are because the powers that be cant control it. It’s an allegory for blacks, gays, the disabled (mentally and physically), women, and anyone really who isnt a white man at the top of the food chain.
"Curing AIDS? Shit, that’s like Cadillac making a car that lasts for 50 years. And you know they can do it, but they ain’t going to do nothing that fucking dumb. Shit, they got metal on the Space Shuttle that can go around the Moon and withstand temperatures of up to 20,000 degrees, you mean to tell me you don’t think they can make an El Dorado with a fuckin’ bumper that don’t fall off?"

You can’t bookmark your favorite pieces
to return to whenever you’re feeling lonely;
when the nights get too cold and you
need something familiar to keep you warm,
you can’t reopen their spines and wear
out their pages and call that obsession love."
