Play Dead by Björk from "Debut" Album


i play dead 
it stops the hurting
i play dead
and hurting stops

it’s sometimes just like sleeping
curling up inside my private tortures
i nestle into pain
hug suffering
caress every ache

i play dead
it stops the hurting

Miss Carter had suffered through cancer during childhood. It went into remission, she married, she became pregnant, and during the time of her pregnancy the cancer resurfaced. She told her doctors that she wanted chemotherapy [to prolong her life — her cancer was terminal]. It was a difficult decision for her because she had looked forward to this pregnancy. Her doctors, however, refused the chemotherapy, desiring to protect the fetus’ health. Again, similar to the Burton case, [the doctors] obtained a court order that would allow them to remove the fetus by whatever means necessary and to protect the fetus’ health. In doing so they decided on fetal health over attempting to save the life of the mother. The fetus was removed from her, and it died within two hours. Angela Carter died two days later.

What about the mother’s life? Part 2 of a Q&A with Michele Goodwin

this is a disability issue, a chronic illness issue, a traumatic illness issue, a feminist issue - this should disturb everyone.

(via disabilityhistory)

A reminder: they appointed a lawyer for the fetus but did not appoint one for Angela. This is what we mean when we say that the anti-choice movement does not see us as people.

In bed at 4PM
I held my pillow
and thought “oh well”
in regards to my entire life.

Kagome, Kagome is a creepy Japanese children’s game. 

One player is chosen as the oni (literally demon, but similar to the concept of “it” in tag and sits blindfolded (or with their eyes covered). The other children join hands and walk in circles around the oni while chanting the song for the game. When the song stops, the oni tries to name the person standing directly behind them.

The game itself is alright but wait until you hear about the creepy story behind it. 

It’s about how German scientists performed experiments on children in a Hiroshima orphanege to try and make them “immortal”. It’s said that they succeeded, to an extent, but the “successful” children had “strange behavior”. 

Read a brief summary of here

You can also listen to an audio version (5 minutes in length) here

Dir en grey references to Kagome and the game:


Kagome kago no naka, kagome kago no naka

Kago no naka itsu de *yaru

Kagome kago no naka, kagome kago no naka

Ugomeku kokuaku wa oni no utage

English (My translation and interpretation)

Kagome in the cage, Kagome in the cage

When will Kagome come out to play?

Kagome in the cage, Kagome in the cage

The harsh squirming at the Demon’s feast

de*(yaru depending on how it’s written can have multiple meanings, either to come out of the cage to play, kill, or have sex. “de” indicating a means of action or time of action. In this case, I assume the lyrics point to coming out to play the game due to “Kagome” being said twice )


Oni-san kochira te no naru hou e 
Oni o tsukamae watashi to kawa…

Demon-san, come this way to the sound of clapping

I catch the demon, we switch places

(Switching as in the catcher will become the Demon or Oni-san)

please stop acting like making queer characters as straight-acting as possible is ‘positive representation’

"your made-up pronouns aren’t real words"

ah yes, as an english major i can confirm that no one has ever made up words to compensate for gaps in the language

all words occur naturally in caves located deep in the Amazon rainforest, where they are carefully handpicked by linguists and preserved in dictionaries

paparazzi would show up to a celebrity’s lesbian wedding and be like ‘so-and-so looked classically chic at elaborate friendship ceremony with long-time ‘gal pal’ so-and-so. the two reportedly shared a completely platonic kiss and vowed to be ‘best friends’ for life’

hearing the media talk about lesbians is like trying to watch the 4kids version of an anime

welcome to being queer, where everything you do is a political statement and your oppressors think youre oppressing them

when it gets
dark outside
you set fire
to yourself.
