Hi.My name is Gabi. I'm about to be a biology major in Canada. I'm more or less an INTP.
This is stuff I feel like posting. I like science, MBTI/cognitive functions which I sometimes like to pretend are science, terrible puns, books, and a number of other things.There will be whiny personal posts and mostly confusing posts about my indecisive cultural/religious/sexual/everything identities. Also a bunch of other things. Quality varies widely. Everything varies widely. Sorry. (I also apologize too much)
I really wish there were two-sided explanations of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict because being in Israel and staying with Israelis makes me realize how important an approach based on the current, actual state of things is.
(btdubs Israel has many arab israelis in government seats, arab israelis are voting citizens, and it is most certainly NOT an apartheid state. like, it has problems but apartheid is not one of them.)
i’m becoming increasingly annoyed by the skewed information on my dash right now and its complete ignorance of how any solution ever has to be two-sided.
the only thing the average israeli wants right now is peace. the only thing the average gazan wants right now is peace. it’s upsetting that people forget that.
my friend’s house got hit by a rocket two days ago and i am so not ok with this detached black and white powerpoint shit because it’s actual people involved and actual people getting hurt. right and wrong in the grand historical scheme of things starts to matter a lot less and saving lives starts to matter a lot more when you hit this point.
i’ll stop myself before i actually give an issue specific opinion because i’d like to sleep, i’d like to avoid angry asks, and i’m still trying to reach a more comprehensive understanding before i opinion-spew. so this is all.
On Tuesday morning I will go to Israel, and I will be in Israel for about a month.
If you wanna get in touch with me use methods besides tumblr. If you don’t have any of those methods and we’re mutuals, ask me for contact infos before I leave.
Also packing is the worst thing ever.
