"I do not have a prescription for successful relationships, and I don’t think anyone should. The goal of most of my work is to remove coercive mechanisms that force people to comply with heteronormative gender and family norms. People often get confused and think that me and other trans activists are trying to erase gender and make everyone be androgynous. In fact, that sounds a little boring to me. What want to see is a world in which people do not have to be criminalized, or cast out of their family, or cut off welfare, or sexually harassed at school, or subjected to involuntary mental health care, or prevented from getting housing because they organize their gender, desire, or family structure in a way that offends a norm. I hope we can build that vision by practicing it in our own queer and activist communities and in our approaches to ourselves. Let’s be gentle with ourselves and each other and fierce as we fight oppression."

TW: Rape

brashblacknonbeliever:

If you have:

  • defended rapists
  • defended rape apologists
  • used the terms “legitimate/forcible rape” seriously
  • defended racists
  • tone policed people who have called out racists
  • defended people who have threatened to rape/murder others
  • tried to tell a PoC that they’re not a PoC

I’m gonna need you to click that unfollow button immediately.

No fucking joke.

I don’t want to hear from you, see you, be near you, or be associated with you in the most remote way possible.

Stay the fuck away from me and I will happily stay the fuck away from you.

just a reminder: every time you shit on someone’s anger at their oppressors, you’re a part of the problem
