"supporting" trans children by misgendering them

It’s really fucking funny to me because after the first him her mom corrected herself and then continued on with calling her daughter “her”
This is fukh8 who is quoting wrong and actually changing the quote to make sure you know this girl was assigned male at birth
It’s not the mom who fukh8 was quoting.

Making a mistake is one thing, but purposefully misgendering trans women and girls is straight up violence. Why did the company even make this ad? Why put this girl through this??? What the entire fuck?

When will this FCKH8 garbage finally end?

Hi! Long time follower of the blog and huge fan. Have you heard of the Black Chronicles II exhibition in London? I can't link you in the ask box, but if you search that it should take you to the website. (I mean...you've probably already seen it, but I just thought I'd risk it and see if you were interested).

medievalpoc:

I’ll share the link so people can check it out!

The exhibit is current and will go on until November 29:

Autograph ABP presents Black Chronicles II, a new exhibition exploring black presences in 19th and early 20th-century Britain, through the prism of studio portraiture – continuing our critical mission of writing black photographic history.

Black Dentist In All-White Practice Forced To Resign Over Ferguson Posts

Will those stellar free-speech advocates on the right stand up for Dr. Misee Harris, or will they remain silent?

Dr. Misee Harris, who also was the Black Bachelorette, just found herself in an impossible situation after posting support for Ferguson and Mike Brown’s family on her private Facebook page. Dr. Harris was given a choice to resign or shut up. Here’s the story:

Genocide is defined by the United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide as “any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.”

When little black girls, especially little black dark skin girls, enter this world it is very clear, the rules are made very aware, who is beautiful, and valued, and who is not. Simply because we are black, simply because we are not white, we are deemed inferior, unintelligent, and ugly. 

You would rather paint your white women brown, then dare allow a black woman exist and be deemed as beautiful. It is not our place to be called beautiful unless there is a catch, unless there is an asterisk. “You’re pretty!*” 

*for a black girl 

You will spend money tanning, but call black women monkeys and ‘dirty’, our hair styles are ghetto, till your magazine has a step by step tutorial on how to achieve the same look, so it’s not ghetto, it’s just ghetto on us. It ‘works’ on you. 

We are taught certain rules when we are young, ‘You look so much prettier with straight hair!’ ‘Oh, thank god she light skin,’ ‘Don’t stay out in the sun you’ll look burnt,’ ‘Yeah but that hair isn’t professional-‘ 

We are taught to hide, to assimilate, to be close to whiteness because whiteness is acceptable and we are not. We get these rules as children. So to grow up, learning and adapting to these rules, and then seeing white people praised for stealing our culture, our dress,

if a photo of us dressed like that appeared on the news, people would say any injustice we faced, was deserved, ‘look at them, dressed like that.’

But you can wear it, freely, without judgement, without risk. No one would say you deserved to die. No one would give your killer half of a million dollars, as basically a congratulations, a pat on the back, for murdering you. 

Just our natural being is a threat to you, we are born villains to you. We possess this great threat, but at the same time, you look down on us, expect us to be stupid, low class, dirty… we are not on your level, you still see us as your servants in your culture, but pretend to be the gods in ours. 

It’s confusing. It’s confusing to be a black woman, to be made a joke, and all the punch lines, our hair, skin tone, lips, body… you try to imitate, but it’s not that, it isn’t, it’s our very existence that’s a joke to you. And if you are white, and reading this, and offended, 

Fuck you. 

Fuck you, fuck your whole ancestry line, and fuck your future generations.

My parents tried to teach me to love myself. I just couldn’t see it yet, and I know other black children can’t yet either. Or even if they ever will.

That’s why this is so important. I don’t want any black child to feel like they are any less beautiful or smart than a white child, because of their lack of representation, or misrepresentation in the media.

I direct a kids community choir at and I see this self hate more and more every week. It hurts knowing that regardless of what I tell them, they don’t feel beautiful or smart… I know it hurts them more.

So, you're assuming I'm not only racist but also white because I disagree with your very narrow minded, bigoted and hateful point of view? Hmm. You realize this says far more about your views on race than it does about mine, right?

I’m not assuming shit, you’re a racist, you’re a bitch ass racist. 

People like you are more mad at me, over a fucking internet post, then the fact that an unarmed boy got shot down and his murderer raised half a million dollars. 

You didn’t call up the police in Ferguson, you’re not blowing up any government office with this shit trying to help. 

People like you will blow up the inboxes of people of color, but so silent, no where to be seen around neo nazis or white nationalists. 

People like you, don’t want to end racism, you want us to shut up, you are perfectly fine in the status quo. You are perfectly content in the violence against us. You sit perfectly comfortable while people are dying all around you. You don’t have the intelligence to question anything. You don’t want to hear our voices because you don’t put value in our voices, let alone our fucking lives. 

Because YOU ARE A RACIST. 

Racist. 

A coward, bitch ass racist. 

But stay stunted, ignorant, heartless, and juvenile, you’re only proving the point further that white people have no capacity or ability to garner enough empathy to actually be considered functioning people. 

I pissed off white nationalists and neo nazis with that post, and are you on their side. 

Bitch. Ass. Racist.

From the Strolling Series by Cecile Emeke

free condoms; pay for tampons, typecasting, “selling out”, rape culture & more

I love this series, and everything she said completely resonated with me, especially when she talked about how black men (#FakeDeeps, as Cecile cleverly put it) contribute to sexism towards black women. I think it’s important that feminism places women as central to the cause, and I loved how she spoke from her who point of view as a black women.

Aboriginal Peoples Choice Awards and the Corporate ‘REDWASH’ Agenda – An Open Letter by Clayton Thomas-Muller
Dear Indigenous Peoples Movement,
We need to talk (again) about a serious issue threatening our livelihood and our collective inherit and treaty rights known as corporate sponsorship and the ‘REDWASH’ agenda [of our artistic and education institutions] Last night the Aboriginal Peoples Choice Awards (APCA) happened in my hometown of Winnipeg, Manitoba and some of our brightest artists and their work were recognized.
The APCA show was sponsored by some of of the biggest violators of Indigenous/Treaty Rights in this country, here is a short list of these corporate criminals:
http://aboriginalpeopleschoice.com/sponsors/
Transcanda Pipeline Corporations (Grand Rapids Mother Pipeline-Alberta, KXL-USA, Energy East-Alberta to New Brunswick pipelines)
Enbridge (Northern Gateway, Great Lakes Pipelines, Line9-Ontario-Main, Alberta Clipper-Minnesota)
Manitoba Hydro (Mega Hydro Expansion-Northern Manitoba)
Royal Bank of Canada (biggest financier of destructive fossil fuel and mining development in Canada most notably tar sands and associated pipelines.)
The Northern Company (food monopoly in northern Canada, price gouging, exploiting food deserts in First Nations Metis and Inuit communities)

Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj performed the remix to “***Flawless” at the On The Run concert in Paris. I am so JELLIS! I saw On The Run in Miami and in San Francisco (phenomenal; truly) and I wanted Nicki to come out in San Fran but I see it was planned for the international show as it wouldn’t have been enough time for San Fran. I saw all the YouTube videos of this performance (before Sony took them down, but there are a few on Instagram) and it was great. Their expressions back and forth were so connected, such artistic synergy and sisterhood. (Though my personal preference song wise is for the original version, I do really really like what they did with this as a performance. Nicki killed it!)

And like Twitter buddy (whose music critiques I always love) @cnrush alluded to this morning, it was like Bey was hyping her! I mean, career legend making space for Nicki to shine? Great. And Nicki was SO HAPPY; her Instagram posts of this are truly endearing, even alluding to the fact that this was a goal of hers. I love this!  

Oh and these Versace costumes! LOVE!

Let’s stop HIV in New York City

  • If you are HIV-negative, PEP and PrEP can help you stay that way.
  • If you are HIV-positive, PEP and PrEP can help protect your partners.

 

Daily PrEP

PrEP is a daily pill that can help keep you HIV-negative as long as you take it every day.

  • Ask your doctor if PrEP (Pre-exposure Prophylaxis) may be right for you.
  • Condoms give you additional protection against HIV, other sexually transmitted infections, and unintended pregnancy.

 

Emergency PEP

If you are HIV-negative and think you were exposed to HIV, immediately go to a clinic or emergency room and ask for PEP (Post-exposure  Prophylaxis).

  • PEP can stop HIV if started within 36 hours of exposure.
  • You continue taking PEP for 28 days.

Many insurance plans including Medicaid cover PEP and PrEP. Assistance may be available if you are uninsured. Visit NYC Health’s website to find out where to get PrEP or PEP in New York City.

This is such a giant step that barely any people know about it seems, so amazing to see progress in the treatment of HIV

I honestly thought this might be exaggeration but the CDC says that PrEP is 92% effective. Damn. Damn.
