In Urdu, the word "Pathan" is often used interchangeably with Pashtun, but I sometimes get the impression that the word has negative connotations; in Pakistan, the two largest targets for racial/ethnic jokes are Sikhs and Pashtuns. I just wondered if you had experienced anything along these lines, and if you believe "pathan" to be derogatory.

I prefer the term Pashtun for the reasons you mentioned. Also, Pashtun/Pakhtun are the actual terms used in Pashto. Pathan is a foreign word.

I know people are going to comment on this saying they personally don’t find it offensive. It doesn’t matter. It still is - generally - derogatory, regardless of people’s personal experiences, given the stereotypes and negativity associated with the ethnicity and the term itself.

What do you have to say about fouseytube's new rape experiment video?

I haven’t watched it man why do I give off the vibe of a person who has time to watch fouseytube videos

You people need to stop interrogating people on tumblr dot com every time something like this happens

It’s like a virtual press conference is called into order every time something happens, with people you guys deem important haphazardly congregated behind a table with anons asking us questions like “what do you have to say about this thing that happened on the internet today” and “what is your opinion on so and so’s opinion” and “is x bad?”, with people off to the sides quietly collecting receipts or some shit man

Folks, start thinking for your selves, stop looking to others for opinions on everything.

Women - both within and without the United States - are being dramatically affected by war as currently waged by that country. But there has been little public space for dialogue about the complex relationship between feminism, women, and U.S. war. The editors have brought together a diverse set of scholars and activists who examine the questions raised by ongoing U.S. military initiatives. These theorists and organizers develop an anti-racist, feminist politics that brings to the foreground an analysis both of imperialist power and forms of resistance to it.  The questions they raise include: what are the implications of an imperial nation state laying claim to women’s liberation and did U.S. intervention and invasion in fact result in liberation for women in Afghanistan and Iraq?

Good book. I’m using lots of this for my thesis.

Man, if you wanna know about human rights, you gotta read Douzinas. Also, Wallerstein on European Universalism. Both shed very important light into the way we perceive human rights and humanitarianism.
