The Scorch Trials - September 18, 2015
… La vida me dijo a gritos
Que nunca te tuve y nunca te perdí
Y me explicaba
Que el amor es una cosa
Que se va de pronto en forma natural
Lleno de fuego
Si lo fuerzas se marchita
Sin tener principio llega a su final…

La Secretaría de Gobernación inició un proceso administrativo para sancionar a la cantante pop Miley Cyrus, quien durante su show de este martes 16 de septiembre, en la Arena Monterrey, se inclinó para que uno de sus bailarines le golpeara los glúteos con una bandera nacional-
Lo curioso es que es el PAN quién pide la sanción siendo que ellos junto a los otros partidos se limpian el culo diario con ella y la pinche constitución.
i hope they charge her
Basically Miley Cyrus is in trouble with the Mexican government for rubbing a Mexican flag all over her fake butt that she was wearing. She could face a fine, like that matters, seeing as how she has plenty of money. Personally I don’t think it should be illegal to deface a flag, that falls under someone’s right to freedom of speech. But Miley is being extremely disrespectful by doing this in Mexico, and this isn’t the first time she’s accessorized black culture or disrespected people’s culture/national symbols in general.
Mexico’s laws regarding the national flag differ from those in the United States. You can’t use the Mexican flag on shirts, or merchandise, let alone burn it or express your opinion destructively using it. I’m guessing it has a little to do with the nature of the flag’s design; the story of Tenochtitlán, founded by heeding a Mexica oracle, indigenous pride in all of that, and the history of colonization (which, ironically, provided impetus for that flag). Given Mexico’s past of occupation & revolution, laws are strict on certain political expressions—especially when it comes to outsiders.
Miley Cyrus would know nothing or care nothing for understanding any of this. She is of the vampire clan, puro appropriation, whitewash, & disrespect to raise her own profits. I heard she got fined 200K for this, I hope it’s true.
She also did this on Mexican independence day, which adds another layer of disrespect and a lack of understanding for our history and our culture. Also “freedom of speech” means different things in different countries. Just because she has an American sense of entitlement doesn’t give her the right to ignore local laws and customs due to ignorance.
And just because she’s american doesn’t give her the right to do this. But god forbid the poor soul who does this to the american flag. People in the streets would rise a revolution.
México, however influenced by and close to America, is a very, very different country. You should know the relationship between México and the US is a very tense one, like a hateful on and off. Most of the country is very cynical about it because, like most things, it’s not entirely fair and clean.
Another thing you should know is that in the history of México, up to around the beginning of the 20th Century (say around the time the country became properly industrialized?), many of the battles that were fought were against other countries. Sure, we’ve always been rowdy people in general and there have been a lot of internal fights, as it happens in many places. But we’ve always had an external threat looming, there have always been invasions and interventions and battles to be fought for independence. Spain, France, England, the US, all have invaded our country. Hell, the second empire in México was french. Why do you think Cinco de Mayo happened? How do you think California, Arizona, Utah and so on were integrated to the US? Why do you think the majority of the country speaks spanish?
México wasn’t built like USA was: ours is a bloody history, a mixed history. When Spain came, it took everything the natives had, even the ones that cooperated with them. Colonization was rough and unfair and bloody and many were killed for New Spain to be the colony that it was. But New Spain was for spaniards, for their benefit, and people saw that and they weren’t content. The war for independence lasted eleven years (1810-1821) and at the end we were no longer Spain’s but ours, a country of our own. It was hard and confusing and very, very difficult to manage a country, and it still is.
But it was our country, it is still our country.
The flag has changed through the years, it wasn’t always the same. The colours have more or less always been green, white and red. The coat of arms in the middle takes root on an aztec story, it tells the way Tenochtitlan was founded. Our hymn screams of defending our nation, of having a soldier in all of us ready to take arms, of honouring the heroes that have kept us as we are. Children take pledge to the flag every monday, they sing the hymn when the week starts. There’s a meaning to our flag, it is our history in it. It means we’re independent, it means we’re a country, it means that no matter how many of you step in this nation, we’re always going to get it back because México is our home and you can’t take that away. The flag, the hymn, the coat of arms, these are symbols and they matter. Miley Cyrus and her skinny white ass can’t even begin to understand that—she won’t even try to. López Dóriga said so, that fine will be nothing to her. But it is something to us.
My country is in shambles, I’m not lying to myself or to you. There is conflict, there is corruption, there is evil running around, running the country itself. But if you’ve lived in here long enough to consider yourself mexican, you will know that our country is not our government, or our endless problems and the bloodshed. México is the food, México is the history, México is the songs, México is the celebrations, México is the people that have built this country to be what it is and to mean what it does. México is our home and it is us and we matter.
This is a critical part of sex positivity that tends to be overlooked. Let’s celebrate empowering amazing sex and the choice to not have sex, or only have certain kinds of sex.

I’m back! Finally! And I’m feeling pretty rusty, but anyway - here’s an England to get the ball rolling again. It’s a redraw of a very old sketch that I posted ages ago (years ago, even! so weird to think about how long I’ve been in this fandom…)
More to come, soon(ish)!
