Before my ride.

Before my ride.

I went on a wild ride with a bunch of coolies in town and they actually liked me and listened when I explained my vibes and such and like idk but I feel like I’m gonna meet my husband on one of these rides sometime soon. Anyways, I have a bunch of anon spam in my inbox so if you need me, I’ll be there.

Also I hate that whole “eventually everybody will be mixed” narrative because it’s about the erasure/dilution of obvious markers blackness like dark skin and kinky hair but lol

I always think about this. I have heard multiple people say something along the lines of, “Everyone should just mix/should marry interracially and that way we’ll all eventually look like one race and get along for a change,” and all I can get from that is, “Everyone should just be part white in order to be accepted by society.”


White feminists:

When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
  • Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
  • Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

Intersectionality matters.

I just bought my Wonder Woman comic and these were the last two pages. Wonder woman makes me extremely happy.

I’m not gonna lie, this made me cry almost instantly. It reminded me of my childhood (I was assigned male at birth btw) when I would always identify with woman heroes and protagonists and I found myself generally drawn to feminine “girly” things, and I was severely bullied and picked on because of it.

Still, I never let that affect what toys I played with, what sort of books and media I consumed, or how I would carry myself. Because being true to yourself is what matters more than what others may think of you, and I’m happy to see a comic spread that message. Goddess bless Wonder Woman.

*watches Jon Stewart’s comments on Ferguson* hey look it’s a white man getting heaps of credit and adulation for saying the exact same shit that black people have been saying for weeks now. how unexpected.

WHITE SAVIOR! WHITE SAVIOR! bow down……*side eye*

I have mixed feelings about commentary like this because yes I agree that it’s problematic for white people to receive more credit and praise for things black people have been saying for years. But I also think it is necessary to have white figures with primarily white audiences to critique whiteness and white supremacy. Because whenever white people ask what they can do to help, I say, educate your people.

^ ^ ^ ^ ^

I’m on the fence as well. It’s like of course a white man is going to receive praise for his “progressive” viewpoints while black people are continuously ignored, silenced, or dismissed. That’s an ugly reality. But at the very least, Stewart is spreading the message to educate his audience to some degree. Granted, he doesn’t deserve a medal or an Emmy for saying what deserves to be said and has been said for years by Black people, but he’s using his forum for something just.
