I had to learn
what it meant
to be marked woman,
what it cost
my bitter words
behind my teeth.
I had to learn
to hold my feelings—
in my chest,
my inner longing
to stay trapped
within my throat.
I had to learn,
my darker hue
had no claim
to righteous anger,
and so I held
my plastic smile
despite the hurt
within my gut.
They teach you
so that you never
taste your freedom.
These are the dutiful pills
as our bones
begin to break.

How did “listen to oppressed ppl bc their experience informs them about the systems that oppress them in ways u couldn’t know”
turn into “only ppl from an oppressed group can have opinions on, speak about, or organize action against their oppression”
Maybe not super appropriate to have the cops out this year guys
~~or any year~~
Let’s talk about exceptionalism. This is by no means a complete video about how to deal with people who argue with you using exceptionalism, but if you are a creator who is attracting these kinds of arguments it is important to know how to attack it and how to disengage from it as the person making this argument has absolutely no interest in having a good faith discussion on how to help the poor and disenfranchised and marginalized groups in this country. Be smart with your arguments and know why you are arguing for some thing so that when someone comes in with a counter argument you can name it for what it is, and this is just one example of a bad faith argument #actuallyunmasking #actuallyautistic #autisticadults #antiracist #politics #blm #blacklivesmatter #arguments
My “I’m Here” series, I’m not sure I’m finished yet
If the animaniacs will refrence BLM it will be the cherry on top and I won’t have any doubts again
If anyone here plays Roblox and encounters a “Crystal_Sparckle”, report immediately. This person repeatedly says things like how “white people are oppressed” and how “it’s not against the rules” (it was btw, my roomie and her friend were playing and her friend quoted the rules) They also called my roomie and all others who opposed them (most people) “bidentouchies”
Report, and do not engage.
Edit: THIS JUST IN SHE REFUSES TO CITE SOURCES AND ADMITTED TO JUST GOOGLING THINGS
Edit 2: HER NAME ON THIS RP SERVER IS LITERALLY “JOES VOTER FRAUD”
Edit 3: she just tried to use Reagan as a “source”
Not my tiktok!

my legs got burned to the second degree, so I finally took myself to the doctor, which I was forced to pay for out of pocket because I don’t have health insurance, which basically wiped out the money I had left to live on, so I increased this 250€ for my new latptop and basic necessities such as food.
The link to my kofi is this and it’s also in my bio
I’m 25% there and I’d just like to thank anyone who has donated or rebloged this so much

The Japanese Diet is having a hearing and live stream concerning same-sex marriage, and they’re “gauging interest” based on the viewership of the livestream. basically, if people don’t watch, they’ll just write off the issue as niche and avoid it for as long as possible.
Spread this like f_cking wildfire in every possible way, because this affects the future of Japan’s lgbt community. They are trying to keep this from becoming a big deal. It will be during the workday in Japan to keep people from watching, so it is the job of the rest of the world to
You have 20 minutes, so GET A MOVE ON PEOPLE. Go onto Amino, go onto Facebook, go onto Tumblr, and Twitter, and Snapchat, and Twitch, go onto f_cking Roblox chat rooms if you want. Force people to spread the word until the Queen of England knows. Go onto whatever you want, f_cking text people, just get as many people watching as you personally can, and keep the viewer count high. This is a moment that affects thousands of people’s lives. YOU decide the speed at which Japan starts addressing gay rights issues, so go, and f_cking make a difference because for once you can do something that changes thousands of lives.
