Anonymous asked: Er but u literally said that you were 'some white some not white'. So yeh u did actually try to make out that u weren't totally white. Why try to backtrack? U are clearly white. Unless ur part asian or black or indigenous australian guess what? Ur WHITE. There was no need to even mention that u were some not white considering a) ur not and b) you don't even know what ur ethnic heritage is so why try to lay claim to something u know nothing about? Idiot.

No. I haven’t back tracked on anything. I have stated VERY clearly I am white in my answer and I think made it clear I classify myself as a white person. Saying I am some white and then also explaining that I have some history of non white in my family, still makes me white!
The whole point of the answer was for people asking about my ethnic heritage because THEY didn’t think I looked to be white British and were curious about what it was. Fair enough. I get it a lot all the time with people asking me if I am italian or Spanish etc anyways. And so my honest answer is to those querying it all is - whilst I know there is some other ethnicity on my father’s side of the family, I didn’t know exactly what it is. But yeah, obviously I am white and a white person in all respects and classify myself as a white person too ..and have no problems with doing so. All I have done is give a full answer to genuine questions about my ethnic heritage with an honest one. Get a grip!

I think Anon is forgetting about a few races in their scathing analysis.

You are basically telling Latin Americans, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, the Inuit, and people of Middle Eastern descent (etc.) that they are white. The only idiot here is you.

Fresh nettle tea made from leaves of urtica urens (small nettle).

I love nettle tea and don’t see why people bother buying it from the shops. Why buy expensive dried leaves imported from abroad when you can get it for free in your own countries hedgerows?

Very easy to identify… And, if you still aren’t sure, the sting to the fingers will let you know you are correct! Wear gloves.

Rudimentary Peni - Cosmetic Plague

The daily use of violence by queers for the purposes of survival, self-defense, or vengeance is often hidden or obscured through a whole array of closeting apparatuses. Generations of queer street gangs, armed whore communes, bank-runs to support AIDS victims, brick-hurling queens—these have been forgotten by all, except in the form of heretical mythology passed from lover to lover. More than anything, this collection of communiqués should serve to illustrate a new way of communication regarding violence. For Bash Back!, the use of violence as a part of resistance and survival is always something to celebrate. The violence claimed in these communiqués spans from the hyper-personal to the overly political: bar fights with assaulters, bats to homophobes and fascists, distribution of pepper spray to queers, queer summit riots. At times, the oscillation from personal to political can make one’s head spin: queerbashers attacked within a riot or a police station attacked as atonement for a lifetime of trauma. In sharing these stories, Bash Back! acted to expose the silent yet raging social war that permeates the lived experiences of many queers. This communication itself is a radical act, one that seeks to draw lines to connect individual struggles into a constellation of ultra-violence in the service of queer life. Teen suicide, queerbashing, AIDS genocide, exclusion at borders, enslavement in prisons: the violence experienced by queers is multiform and evolving. As such, resistance to that violence must also be fluid and diffuse.

GATHER

Spring has come and it is time to forage for many wild edible foods! Morel mushrooms are a favorite for me and very easy to ID. They are a truly wild food and have not yet been able to be grown in labs, thus making them the “anarchist mushroom.” (thanks Kevin Tucker for your wit)

First sign of a morel (still growing) found early in the spring season. They grow much larger.

Here is some simple advice for beginners that has helped me get to know my local area. If you can afford a book it’s great to take out in the field with you. Libraries usually offer some sort of local field guides for free. You can learn a lot by going out to a wild area and looking up what you see in a guide. Guides are usually broken up into sections described by leaf and/ or petal shape, color, season, etc and you will learn a lot by looking up what you see around you. If searching for edibles a guide will usually list poisonous looks alikes so you know what to avoid. They also include suggestions to avoid as a beginner if there are multiple poisonous look alikes for a certain food. Don’t let this scare you! There is so much completely unmistakable food and medicine out there for you to forage.

Bring a friend or go solo but GET OUT THERE! I was taught many foraging tips from experienced friends who took me out on hikes. I had never spotted morels before and they taught me how and where to really look. Now every spring I’m out with someone new getting them stoked on foraging too. Calm your mind and get your hands dirty. You will not regret learning how to do this. The importance of connecting with your food can not be overstated.

My book suggestion is “Mushrooms Demystified” by David Arora


It’s a hefty book with a ton of great information and photos.

Please share some of your favorite titles/resources/tips!
