Sick Woman Theory

Sick Woman Theory | all that jazz | Scoop.it
Johanna Hedva lives with chronic illness and her Sick Woman Theory is for those who were never meant to survive but did. Her fellow spoonies.
tomcat higgins's insight:

there is so much to unpack in this...

"I used to think that the most anti-capitalist gestures left had to do with love, particularly love poetry: to write a love poem and give it to the one you desired, seemed to me a radical resistance. But now I see I was wrong.

The most anti-capitalist protest is to care for another and to care for yourself. To take on the historically feminized and therefore invisible practice of nursing, nurturing, caring. To take seriously each other’s vulnerability and fragility and precarity, and to support it, honor it, empower it. To protect each other, to enact and practice community. A radical kinship, an interdependent sociality, a politics of care."

tomcat higgins's insight:

grunge 90's:

"Considering one of the most common criticisms of the fashion industry though is its tendency to celebrate narrow definitions of beauty, whenever those definitions are challenged, there’s something interesting happening. When being different and complex is seen as beautiful, it’s hard to deny that’s pretty cool."

Ama - The Pearl Diving Mermaids of Japan (Warning: Nudity) - Gakuranman | all that jazz | Scoop.it
One of the lesser-known but fascinating parts of Japanese culture is that of the Ama pearl divers. Ama (海女 in Japanese), literally means ‘woman of the sea’ and is recorded as early as 750 in the oldest Japanese anthology of poetry, the Man’yoshu. These women specialised in freediving some 30 feet down into cold water …
