People believe that little white kids in the suburbs have the right to live. They have the right to be happy. They have the right to peace. When it comes to black babies in urban neighborhoods, people don’t believe these children deserve to have similar rights. When people say things like ‘I can’t believe this would happen here,’ they are effectively saying that there are some neighborhoods where these tragic outcomes are far more acceptable. I reject this notion entirely, and it is reflective of both white supremacy and classism.
I’m real tired of seeing skinny white kids painted as THE AVERAGE QUEER. Like please show me a curvy Indian agender kid from Brooklyn, a hispanic lesbian and her black girlfriend. A trans demisexual dude from Korea. GIVE ME SOMETHING OTHER THAN LANKY PALE PEOPLE WITH COLORFUL HAIR PLEASE GOD.
I will never stop linking to this article: Black People Make Up Largest Share of LGBT Community
Let’s stop pretending otherwise, OK Media?
I’m so tired and I want to take a nap but I know that if I do it’ll probably be dark by the time I wake up and I don’t want that.
You never need to apologize for how you chose to survive.
The snow is actually sticking this time and I’m supposed to be studying today but I just want to PLAY.
How many whiskey sours does it take for Nicole to start falling over? Three apparently.
THERE IS A GOD.
Cis women have cis privilege
White women have white privilege
Rich women have class privilege
Straight women have privilege for their sexuality
Able bodied women have privilege etc. like
Did I really have to explain that? Do people really not know that……… If you have one of those privileges and you’re oppressed every other way, FINE. No one’s saying you aren’t. If you’re all of those things, FINE, recognize your privilege. Women are oppressed and men have privilege over them but… don’t think it means you don’t have to problematize your position in the world (or in your country) because you’re a woman. You aren’t just one thing.. You aren’t just a raceless woman that doesn’t benefit from or get put at a disadvantage because of how you look, for example… Consider that and realize your privilege or disadvantage and recognize it???
Finals are seriously getting in the way of my libido and I am not okay with it.
