As disco recordings began to saturate the music markets, disco itself increasingly lost its connection to its queer, black and Latin roots. But these roots weren’t completely forgotten: when the disco market collapsed at the end of the ’70s and the anti-disco backlash began to take over in America, disco’s critics suddenly remembered its sexualized and racialized origins. The anti-disco slogan, “Disco Sucks”—available on t-shirts, bumper stickers, buttons and more—wasn’t just a metaphor in the ’70s: it was a direct reference to cock-sucking, aiming a half-spoken homophobic slur at disco and its fans.

Iris Grace is 5 years old. She was diagnosed with autism in 2011. Her parents sought out therapists and, in doing so, discovered that she has a particular talent—perhaps a passion—for painting. As her mother writes on her website,

"We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking. Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. I make up some cups of very watery paints, she chooses which one she would like to use and gets me to make more when she needs it and she mixes her own colours from mug to mug. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other. She beams with excitement and joy when I get out the paints, it lifts her mood everytime. She has found a way of expressing herself that is so beautiful, so we wanted to share it and thereby raise awareness of her condition, which is currently affecting around 100,000 children in the UK and these numbers are rising.”
White women’s feminisms still center around equality…. Black women’s feminisms demand justice. There is a difference. One kind of feminism focuses on the policies that will help women integrate fully into the existing American system. The other recognizes the fundamental flaws in the system and seeks its complete and total transformation.
There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot.
