This something I have dealt with daily from the beginning of realising my gender identity.

There aren’t many fat trans folk that I see often, but I’ll tell you one thing. It’s great for androgyny in some cases. But it makes binding impossible. It makes round things rounder. And the entire mass of body dysphoria and gender identity disorder creates a serious case of Depersonalisation.

I often feel my body like its encased in a weird suit of gooey stuff, and if I could just slice it off, I might find myself. I never get to doing it, but I can’t stop fantasising about it. But I know it can’t in reality fix my problem.

Quote
"Most of the time, it’s clear that you actually believe the arguments you claim to have just for the heck of it. However, you know that these beliefs are unpopular, largely because they make you sound selfish and privileged, so you blame them on the “devil.” Here’s the thing: the devil doesn’t need any more advocates. He’s got plenty of power without you helping him. These discussions may feel like “playing” to you, but to many people in the room, it’s their lives you are “playing” with. The reason it feels like a game to you is because these are issues that probably do not directly affect you. It doesn’t matter whether most mass shootings are targeted at women who rejected the gunman if you are a man – though it should, since misogyny kills men too. If you are white, it doesn’t matter whether people of color are being racially profiled or not. You can attach puppet strings to dialogues about real issues because at the end of the day, you can walk away from the tangled mess you’ve exacerbated."

White Savior Complex - Vlog by Erica Badu

I decided to get a few thoughts out there about white guilt and white savior complex. Still developing my thoughts, but here they are thus far. 

This video should not be generalized to all white people, but hey it’s real outchea and a lot of people actually think like this believe it or not.

Women of the KKK, 1923.

No one can honestly tell me that this isn’t something that looks like it is straight out of the demonic mind of a scary movie producer. Sadly, it’s not. This is a real photograph taken of the female KKK members in 1923 ( just incase you thought white women were innocent ). As I stare at this picture my heart mourns for every strong POC, no not just those of African diaspora because we all know the KKK despises all us POC, they lived during the arguably the worst time for POC in America. They had no laws that could protect them or even had the chance to defend themselves in court like what we are rightfully and deservingly given today. Take a moment to pray (whatever your religion) for the souls of those affected by pre desegregation. Take a moment to thank those who lost their sons, daughters, Etc in the fight to be able to walk outside in broad daylight and not get lynched. Will racism ever end? I don’t know, but what I do know is that no one should have to put up with it as an every day nightmare. No matter what your ethnicity is we MUST stick together, for together we are strong. I dream of a day these people may never hurt our children.

this shit looks like american horror story

it was the black american horror story

My alma mater, Smith College, had a chapter of the KKK until the 1930s, thought we generally pretend it wasn’t the case. The myth of white female innocence with regards to systemic racial oppression is so pervasive it’s ridiculous.

white women are not and have never been passive victims of the white supremacist patriarchy, they are active enforcers of racial oppression as means of holding shared privilege with their white male counterparts 

What I been saying tho.

Thank you! White women might be worse for WoC than white men. They have always been very clear about where they stand.

women play a huge role in maintaining white supremacy esp in orgs like kkk. they are to birth the next generation of white supremacists. that is a position of status and power. so much about reproductive choice, health “justice” that white sexologist refuse to engage. are we surprised laws were created to protect them over all other women, to this day, in the US? the book women of the klan gives some deeper insight if interested. 

you can participate in white supremacy regardless of your gender

White women are not innocent, they’re just as dangerous and violent as white men.
