i don’t remember you

"I had always believed that I could do anything, and when you’re in school you can do anything. You can play any role, you can play any age, because that’s what you do at school. But the realization that they really didn’t make movies or TV shows about black women… I suddenly panicked. I just had this panic like ‘Oh my god, I spent all this time to do this thing that the industry is not set up for me to succeed in this thing.’ So I freaked out. I freaked out." - Tracie Thoms: Life After Juilliard

HAPPENING NOW (9.24.14): The situation in Ferguson is escalating quickly. Protests continue, following this morning’s burning of a Mike Brown memorial, and another frustrating Ferguson City Council meeting.Looks like the same “antagonize over de-escalate” tactics are back online. Prayers to all those out in the street of Ferguson right now fighting for their right to exist. #staywoke #farfromover (PT IPT IIPT III)  

Bringing back the dogs, choppers, charging the crowd, attempting to bottleneck protesters into an area, AND live shots possible fired into the crowd… what the ever-living fuck is Ferguson PD trying to do?! We’re a month and a half into this saga, and they still don’t know how to de-escalate a situation. Pray y’all. That might be all we got right now.

i have to present the topic proposal for my thesis in front of the class tomorrow and i’m already panicking because what i have is pretty much

"hello i’m going to write about gay whalers PLEASE DON’T THROW THINGS AT ME!!!"

What are you? Are you a demon? A monster sent from hell? I don’t know. You see, my brother was a kind, gentle person. He wasn’t a monster. Who are you? What’s your name? Kieren. No, don’t believe you, sorry. That’s my name. Prove it. I don’t understand? Tell me something only my brother would know about me.

experimenting w gender identity is always something to be encouraged. transness is not a precious commodity. it’s not something u can appropriate. and even if u discover that you’re actually cis, that you feel most comfortable as a cis boy or girl, exploring gender will always teach u something new and important about yourself.

you’re not a “transtrender” if u aren’t or haven’t always been completely confident in your transness. u and your identity are 1000% valid.

It is better to explore your gender identity and come to the conclusion that you’re cis than to never question it. It shows that you are not treating cis as the default, that you are identifying as male/female because that is who you are and not because it is the “default”. Same goes for nonbinary gender exploration.

Contrary to popular belief, marginalized groups actually don’t owe allies anything and aren’t obligated to praise allies just for showing basic human decency.

No but marginalized groups can’t treat allies like shit either

Yea we know, otherwise you’ll literally kill us
