I want more men
with flowers falling from their skin
more water in their eyes
more tremble in their hands
more women in their hearts
than
on their bodies
more softness in their height
more honesty in their voice
more wonder
more humility in their eyes.

So, when people ask me why I won’t shut up about racism in fandom and let people enjoy themselves, I’m going to think back on this moment.

I log onto the Internet, eating my favorite pasta and looking forward to Elementary, when bam, racist bullshit shows up as a reply to one of my posts. This shit happens at least once a day, and that’s a good day. Yet no one seems to give a damn about my enjoyment of fandom. Folks want to talk about fandom being an escape, when I can’t even safely escape there?

rubato:

the thing about racebending though is that, for me, it’s not so much a what-if, or a thought experiment, or really all that much about PoC representation in the media—which is very much important, don’t get me wrong—but for me, racebending isn’t a statement, so much as it is a personal adjustment that turns media that is alienating and very often hostile to me into something that’s safe and that I can engage in more comfortably.

Actually, all Aries are immortal: if you mortally wound an Aries, their righteous indignation will cause them to spontaneously regenerate and burn up your soul in the blinding fury of their rebirth.

Just a reminder: they officially said “I have been reduced to a hot mess because of Mike Chilton” on television

The fact that I
am writing to you
in English
already falsifies what I
wanted to tell you.
My subject:
how to explain to you that I
don’t belong to English
though I belong nowhere else.

I can simultaneously be angry with white supremacy and love white people. I can be in love with a white woman and hate her ignorance at her own white privilege. I can get so frustrated with racism that I barely want to be around any white people, and I can share that with my white friends over a few drinks.

You might think that’s confusing. You might even call it hypocrisy. I call it being a person of color.

Do people honestly think oppressed folk WANT to be angry all the time?

I mean, jesus christ, if I could make it through the day without reading a book, watching a TV show, or interacting with people without anything making me feel like I’d been cut I’d fucking love it.
