sorry but children younger than her in the middle east get blown up by drones purely because of their proximity to suspected terrorists, i don’t really care about a dutch teenager getting arrested for sending a “joke” threatening tweet to an airline while claiming to be a member of al qaeda because she thought her obvious positions of privilege would protect her from any and all consequences

The legacy of anti-Black racism is that Black struggle gets deemed the property of all other social justice struggles. The symbols and tactics of Black struggle are deemed the common property of all. Black people are required to show solidarity with other people of color, without other people of color owing solidarity to Black communities. Black oppression is always analogized to other forms of oppression in a manner that disappears Black oppression itself. It is presumed we already know everything about Black oppression, so we can just use it as an empty signifier to explain other oppressions.
Damn. TELL IT.

If I had a dollar for every. fucking. time.someone compared being black to being gay, or disabled, or…..anything really.
Create your own gender. Invent your own pronouns. You are not limited to the language we have. You are not limited to the lie of the gender binary. Gender is limitless and so are you. Your identity is valid, and anyone who tells you otherwise needs to be slam-dunked into a garbage can.
I know a lot of people (like myself) are visual learners and new pronouns can be really difficult to learn, and a while back I made a cute pokemon-themed pronoun post a while back, so I thought that combining pokemon sprites with sets of pronouns as a visual aid might help some others out!!
This list is also going to serve as a pronoun masterpost and will be constantly updating, so please feel free to suggest more by sending me an ask!
Cut for length and pokemon gifs!
