Our hands and legs are very similar, sharing many of the same bones and muscles. They’re just a different size and shape in each limb. In fact, pretty much every bone in your hand has a matching partner in your feet. And these limbs don’t just share physical…

Historically there is no word in Wolof that translates literally to “gay” or “homosexual” as the words are commonly used in the West in the late 20th and early 21th centuries. And while some African countries are making headlines for various anti-gay laws, such as Nigeria’s recent passage of a law banning same-sex marriage and membership of gay rights organizations, the Raw Material Company gallery in Dakar decided to address the issue of homophobia in Senegal with an expo called, “Who said it was simple?” (named for the Audre Lorde poem of the same title).
When I spoke to the curator at the gallery about the expo, she told me the gist of the event is to explore how homosexuality, which is something that she says was traditionally accepted and integrated into society in Senegal, has become something that now often provokes vicious backlash. (According to the Associated Press, earlier this year, two men were arrested in Dakar for “engaging in homosexual acts” and sentenced to six months in prison; in January, four men were arrested for attacking and beating gay men in their neighborhood.)
The expo is made up of displays of Senegalese newspapers, illustrating how local media now treat the issue. A plaque at the entry declares that the “current radicalization” of homophobia is born from the tendency to now use “Western notions designed to define margins and minorities, while local systems of ensuring peace and social well-being remain erased.”
One of the points the expo makes is that it’s hard to discuss human rights in Africa “within an imperialist framework that imposes categories and creates identity where there were practices.” When I asked the curator for an example of what this meant, she told me that while there is no Wolof word for “lesbian,” there are multiple words for the practice of a woman having sex with a woman, or a man having sex with a man.
This way of recognizing “acts” without labeling the “actor” raises important questions: how important is it to be able to safely claim your identity in society? Is that not a fundamental human right as we are taught in the West? Does naming confer certain protections that are unavailable without the recognition of a specific identity, or does it simply create conditions for calling out difference?
Aha! Here you are M, I told you I’d find it!
thiseternaloptimist said: Let’s throw pies at Ryan under cover of darkness.
I immediately had a mental image of us dressed as poorly camouflaged ninjas hiding behind shrubbery and under a big black umbrella labeled “cover of darkness” while flinging pies at him and I APPROVE OF THIS SO SO MUCH
So the recent update on the Ryan saga is that:
- he did not come in to work this morning. such shock much wow
- he sent out a long rambly email about how the swelling was down but the more he walks on it the more it hurts and he “feels friction” in his ankle which means something is wrong
- the soonest he could get an appointment was thursday
- he will be teaching his own classes still wow someone give the man a damn cigar and a gold star
- but he won’t be in to the lab at all this week
ok so i just
I know I tend to judge others a lot when they don’t feel well and they don’t just suck it up, and that stems from a childhood of basically being told that if you didn’t have a compound fracture or a fever of 115 you were expected to suck it up
JUST GO BUY A PAIR OF FREAKING CRUTCHES!
This isn’t about money. He and his wife make just over $50,000 jointly. Since he’s a TA, he doesn’t pay tuition (at least, he hasn’t had to pay tuition for three semesters). He has a POSH job lined up after he graduates. He has no dependents. AND, since he broke his ankle a year ago he probably still has crutches anyway.
So my plan is to be the good soldier, go into lab on two days when I otherwise would not even BE ON CAMPUS, and sit in the office studying with a sign on the door that says “I have a qualifying exam on Thursday and unless someone is dying DO NOT DISTURB ME”
