Palestine is and always has been a land of many histories; it is a radical simplification to think of it as principally, or exclusively Jewish or Arab. While the Jewish presence is long-standing, it is by no means the main one. Other tenants have included Canaanites, Moabites, Jebusites, and Philistines in ancient times, and Romans, Ottomans, Byzantines, and Crusaders in the modern ages. Palestine is multicultural, multi-ethnic, multi-religious. There is as little historical justification for homogeneity as there is for notions of national or ethnic and religious purity today.

@ ppl reblogging/liking : they change the movie every wednesday ! current one is annemarie jacir’s “salt of this sea” (2008)
ah oui et une dernière chose mdr après j’arrête ! y a toujours l’idée sous-jacente que la sexualité qu’on regrette pcq on s’y est sentie poussée par la #société c’est celle hors du couple (”coucher à droite à gauche”) ce qui est profondément idiot et anti féministe.
le vrai problème souvent ignoré par le féministe sexpo / pro sexe (mais pas créé ni même particulièrement entretenu par lui àma…) c que la valeur accordée aux femmes en tant que personnes, et donc souvent leur estime d’elles-mêmes, est globalement rattachée à leur capacité à plaire aux hommes et à satisfaire leurs désirs, pas que dans le sexe mais en général. donc il est difficile de démêler ses propres envies de ce que les autres attendent de soi mais ça n’a pas de sens de rejeter catégoriquement l’idée que les femmes et jeunes filles ont un désir propre, y compris hors de la norme sexuelle du jour ou de celle de leur milieu (qui peuvent évidemment ne pas coïncider), ou de rejeter l’idée qu’on peut tout à fait regretter des choses qu’on a réellement désirées (c même normal) et que parfois on fait des trucs en ne les désirant qu’à moitié ou pour des raisons qui nous paraissent mauvaises a posteriori.
idk i often feel like the women who have these really categorical rejection of sex positivity are a bit younger than me, 22/23 max, and i don’t want to question their own experience bc a lot can change in just a few years, but sometimes and based on my own experience which i don’t think was as influenced as theirs by bastardized / mainstreamed sex positivity but can’t be drastically different either, i feel like it’s more complicated than feeling like u did something that u didn’t want to do but more like doing something u were unsure of or would have preferred in different circumstances or didn’t feel was possible or accessible to you etc. and ur kind of torn between wondering whether u wanted something or how or why. u know bc desire is complicated and hard to understand? and there are all these contradicting injunctions as well and wider societal trends that don’t have much to do with sex (positive or not). but being categorical is more reassuring i guess, not saying that in a judgmental way at all.
it’s not emancipatory in itself to “have sex left and right” but it is to think about your desire and free yourself from a normative view of sexuality and from misogynistic preconceptions. the fact that another norm may have emerged and that the initial idea has been perverted doesn’t really change that.
it’s cool to think of all the good things that sex positivity has brought to women.
It would be too simplistic to interpret this failure of insight solely as a gesture of racism. Importantly, it also speaks to the problem of structuring feminist film theory around a totalizing narrative of woman as object whose image functions solely to reaffirm and reinscribe patriarchy. Mary Ann Doane addresses this issue in the essay “Remembering Women: Psychical and Historical Construction in Film Theory”:
This attachement to the figure of the degeneralizible Woman as the product of the apparatus indicates why, for many feminists film theory seems to have reached an impasse, a certain blockage in its theorization…In focusing upon the task of delineating in great detail the attributes of woman as effect of the apparatus, feminist film theory participates in the abstraction of women.
The concept “Woman” effaces the difference between women in specific socio-historical contexts, between women defined precisely as historical subjects rather than as a psychic subject (or non-subject). Though Doane does not focus on race, her comments speak directly to the problem of its erasure. For it is only as one imagines “woman” in the abstract, when woman becomes fiction or fantasy, can race not be seen as significant. Are we really to imagine that feminist theorists writing only about images of white women, who subsume this specific historical subject under the totalizing category “woman,” do not “see” the whiteness of the image? It may very well be that they engage in a process of denial that eliminates the necessity of revisioning conventional ways of thinking about psychoanalysis as a paradigm of analysis and the need to rethink a body of feminist film theory that is firmly rooted in a denial of the reality that sex/sexuality may not be the primary and/or exclusive signifier of difference.

I probably should do it before it gets unbearably hot cause i don’t want to be ill in my 50 degrees flat but if it’s not the first dose it’ll be the second so.
