my dear fellow white people
just fucking stop it with the dreads already please.
upset at all of the “racism isn’t a thing” / “but what about the white people?” / “stop being mean to me if you want me to stop oppressing you” / “I don’t personally own slaves how am I a racist?” shit.
also the next time somebody tries to quote a definition from the OED about racism or prejudice or something, I’m going to scream.
I don’t know who you are but you should totally get to know me because on a scale of 1 to awesome I am guaranteed to be at least a 4.5
wooo I currently have 47 chrome tabs open on my laptop, and the majority of them are either about gender, paganism, or both.
yayyy majoring in Women’s Studies with a minor in Religion
okay now that I’m all irked I have to get this off my chest though, the Westboro Baptist Church came to my school last week to be super homophobic at us, and the campus had a big rally in response to show love to our community and our LGBT students, and raise money for a homeless shelter for LGBT youth in NYC, it was pretty neat. But at the rally our school’s animal rights org had a table and someone was holding a sign that said “no one is free while any are oppressed,” the message being that if you want to end homophobia you must also work to end the abuse, killing, eating, and use in clothing of animals.
which bothered the fuck out of me because I don’t think eating eggs makes me as bad as people who want me dead because I’m queer, like go ahead and disagree if you want I guess, but I thought that sign was a slap in the face to all our queer and trans students who were facing hate
yes these are thoughts I had / agree with.
meh, I’m just in a bad mood. it’s mostly okay. people are just super lazy and don’t really care that much about trans* issues. like, there’s a bunch of people who think they are good allies because they aren’t explicitly homophobic, but there’s a lot more to being an ally than liking glee.
lolol so amused at how everyone keeps talking about vassar as a super-awesome loving accepting queer-friendly school.
haha fuck no.
somehow I didn’t fail, despite having one of the worst finals weeks ever?
