Black Trans Women & Street Harassment:

Conversations on Street Harassment often exclude Black Trans Women because we don’t view them as women& we see their bodies as inherently deserving of violence. We tend to see street harassment of trans women, not as gender based systematic violence, but as non-existent or inexplainable & unavoidable tragedy.

being a feminist is like trying to fix a giant hole in the wall and discovering that the entire wall is rotting and filled with termites and you have a lot more work to do than you thought you did

 

not all termites

Lolololol

I’m truly disturbed by this Potato Salad kickstarter/gofundme thing. Like, y’all can raise 30,000 dollars for ‘potato salad’, but not for housing/community outreach support systems for LGBTQ+ youth? Not to solve homelessness? Not to fix our education system? Not to build up your local community? I mean, wow, if that’s the case, as a college student trying to make it, let me just set up a page saying I need money to bake brownies then.

Samira Wiley
I feel a responsibility to young girls who want to follow in our footsteps. I feel a responsibility to the prison community. I feel like when you get to a place where you’re more visible or where people point at you and say “Samira Wiley, what is she doing?” you have a social responsibility in the world. I’m actually thankful for the amount of responsibility that has been handed to me. I feel very honored.

DAMN

The problem with trans* youth is people assume it’s a phase, like so many other things kids attach themselves to as they grow up. What we all need to accept is that gender identity is not a phase. If I, a cis person, know instinctually that I am a woman, why should it be any different for them?

A woman from the audience asks: ‘Why were there so few women among the Beat writers?’ and [Gregory] Corso, suddenly utterly serious, leans forward and says: “There were women, they were there, I knew them, their families put them in institutions, they were given electric shock. In the ’50s if you were male you could be a rebel, but if you were female your families had you locked up.
Stephen Scobie, on the Naropa Institute’s 1994 tribute to Allen Ginsberg (via fuckyeahbeatniks)

Oh my god this is the realist shit
