An Embarrassment of Hot Takes about Abigail Thorn’s video Identity; or, What Happens When White Creators Use Content From Nonwhite Poets?

I have a hot take to deliver. Abigail’s coming-out video provides a window into the complex relationship between white consumption of nonwhite narratives. And on a loosely connected note, the real answer to Breadtube’s currently ongoing biannual reckoning of β€œwhy do we only have the white people” should not be β€œWELL I GUESS WE’LL NEVER KNOW’, but β€œy’all have eyes and ears, don’t you?”

Okay, now that we’ve gotten the take to the proper boil, let’s throw some rice on in and take this puppy down to a mild simmer. Abigail’s coming-out video was excellent. It was moving, impassioned, creatively staged, and highly informative. As a video, it represented Breadtube at its absolute best, much in the same way as how Abigail represents the best of Breadtube creators. My reaction was complex, but that speaks more to the broader situation of Breadtube and my own personal identity. By all accounts, Abigail’s video accomplished everything it set out to do with flying colors, doing so with all the articulateness and empathy for which she is known.

But I am desi. We do not make rice by tossing in the grains and letting them be. Oh no, ask any Bengali auntie. The dish has to be stirred, or else it just doesn’t turn out quite right. Come here, Babu, hold the spoon, stir for me. Why do I have a strong man in the house if he will not use his muscles?

So let’s stir. And in doing so, let’s use Abigail’s video as a jumping-off point to explore the broader interaction between creator and audience in Breadtube specifically, and why that relationship tends to be enjoyed more by white people. I’d like to share my personal reaction to her video with you. I hope you will come out of this with a more nuanced sense of things, one which encompasses not just Abigail’s full complexity as an individual, but also the inescapable potential for people to be complex in so many different ways.

I am complex. Well no I’m actually quite simple. I

When did poetry become considered an unmanly pursuit in the West and how did this happen after millennia of respected male poets?

It seems to me that this happened some time over the course of the twentieth century. This reflection came to me because the second generation of English Romantic poets (i.e., Shelley, Byron, and Keats) were among my heroes in my last year of high school, but when I made it known to my peers that I liked poetry, they often seemed to find that very worthy of derision.

Amanda Gorman is not a great poet

While she’s lovely and clearly talented, she is not the great poet everyone keeps saying she is. Her poems are too long and convoluted, and she reads them like she’s auditioning for a part in β€œHamilton”.

Clearly I struck a nerve here. I thought this was a place to submit an unpopular opinion. πŸ€”

[TOMT][QUOTE] Quote from an old poet about homosexual love being erased from history.

I know it was from a gay writer or poet who was known to have fallen in love with his (I think) younger Indian student, protege, or colleague. The quote had something to the effect of "and when we are laughing together I am reminded that there are 1000 others whose stories we will never know". The most impactful part is the part about 1000 or 100 other people whose names or stories have been erased by time or something like that. Thank you!
