when the oppressed/minority is quiet or kind, the majority doesn’t go ‘well they are so sweet, we should give them rights.’
when that happens, the majority does not notice the oppressed. they become invisible.
that is why no minority is required to be nice or sweet- because they will be flies on a wall otherwise
when i was 6
i had my first grown up ask me
who i would have walk me down the aisle at my wedding
since i did not have a father
and i told her i didn’t know
when i was 12
my teacher asked me
how i was going to explain to my future son or daughter
why they had two grandmas and no grandpa
and i told him i didn’t know
today i am 17
my mothers have been together for 25 and a half years
and today i was asked these same two questions
and i told them
who the fuck cares
as long as we’re happy
Some people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”
By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:
- The entire state of Rhode Island
- Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
- Pacific Islanders
ah yes. my gender is blue with pink leg
so this is killing me cause my mind immediately thought.
and this is why im not allowed to be part of actual serious discussions.
