Reblogging for Loki in the Hawaiian shirt
reblogging for both Loki in the Hawaiian shirt and the insanely cute and insanely accurate drawing of Loki and his badness level.
It’s true what he says though - there is no subject position from which it’s ok to talk about inequality - if you’re poor you are doing it out of jealously, if you’re not poor you’re doing it out of guilt/saviour complex, if you are young it’s just a phase, if you’re old you are hankering for times long gone and trying to recapture your youth, if you’re not well educated you just don’t understand the complexity of the situation, if you are well educated you’re in an academic bubble divorced from reality, if your politically apathetic you’re not allowed to complain, if you’re politically active you’re just trying to push your own sectarian agenda…
For every possible type of person there’s an established reason why your opinions on inequality are invalid. That’s not an accident.
Relevant, and important to understand.
My favorite thing in the Edda, so far: Loki and Thor going on a journey in order to get stolen Miölnir back from the giant Thrym. Thrym, who asks for Freyja to be his bride in turn. So the council of ALL OF THE AESIR come up with the great plan to disguise Thor as Freya and Loki as her maid.
27. Thrym looked ‘neath the veil, | for he longed to kiss,
But back he leaped | the length of the hall:
“Why are so fearful | the eyes of Freyja?
Fire, methinks, | from her eyes burns forth.”
28. Hard by there sat | the serving-maid wise,
So well she answered | the giant’s words:
“No sleep has Freyja | for eight nights found,
So hot was her longing | for Jotunheim.”
