This so perfectly sums up my thoughts right now.
i think what people don’t realize is that people in activist spaces don’t actually like being angry all the time
we want to be able to go about our day without constantly being on guard for casual abuse, degradation, and shitty behavior hurled our way
we’re not angry at you because we think you’re unconditionally terrible people
we’re angry because we fully believe that you can do better
my type of girl is “girl” and my type of boy is “stand 20 feet away and fill out a form about your political views, give me references, tell me where you want to be in five years, please buy moisturizer and do something different with your hair and we’ll consider your application and get back to you in 20 business days”
Treating the cause not the symptom since 1989. Because I’d rather build safer communities than put more locks on my doors. Now that’s a strange idea of “freedom”.
SHOUT OUT TO ALL THE GIANT GIRLS OUT THERE. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE BBS I GOTCHU. YOU HIT YOUR HEADS ON THINGS AND YOU GET NICKNAMES LIKE GIRAFFE AND DINOSAUR AND YOU’RE LIKE “DAMN STRAIGHT I’M MAJESTIC AS FUCK." US AMAZONIAN GODDESSES WHO BREED FEAR INTO THE HEARTS OF PUNY MEN WHO CAN NOT FATHOM…
"TWO PLUS TWO IS FOUR!" I shriek into the night with rage. A cishet white abled man appears and says, "No, it’s not. Anything you say with anger is incorrect."
"I’m going to believe it’s five now because you’ve alienated me with your tone".
And he did.
