Dear Black Females,
We are not one another’s competition.
Sincerely,
More Hellos. Less Mean Mugs

You will NEVER be successful if you refuse to hire or work with queer, gay, trans, gender non-conforming people. We are the cornerstones of all things essential. We are organizers for the March on Washington. We are the directors of choirs. We are the speechwriters of “I Have A Dream”. We developed First Nation agriculture. We have consistently been behind the scenes pushing forward agendas sans public recognition since the beginning of time. Without queer people, this world as we know it would be but a shell of what it is. So if you want guaranteed failure, stick with your pedestrian philosophy doused in The Politics of Respectability. If you wanna win, check your history facts and #AskBoutUs. #WeBeenOutchea #ProudAssQueerBoiShiftingLenses

Globally, we are obsessed with youth. Yet, previous generations denigrate the current one. Youth are incessantly labeled amoral, hussies, lacking values, inept, and weak. It’s beyond astounding. But folk glorify concepts like “aging backward”, “fountain of youth”, and “forever young”. Riddle me this oxymoron.

FYI: Capitalizing sentiments like ‘For ME’ and ‘In MY opinion’ does not give a pass to your privilege, hegemony, racism, homo/transphobia, etc. Nor does it shield you from being called out. It just lets folk know that YOU like to yell as YOU projectile vomit your bigotry. #AsYouWere

So let me get this straight. We get pets like dogs and cats (who are naturally outdoor animals) then try and domesticate them by spaying, neutering, and declawing them because who they are naturally is an inconvenience? Oh OK. So how would you like it if someone put you under and you woke up with no fingernails, or a blocked reproductive system? Talk about power and domination for the sake of convenience!

I am in a number of FB groups. Some I’m more active in than others. Some of these groups are primarily queer/trans, some aren’t. Within the queer/trans groups, I notice a prevailing theme of superimposed norms from cis/straight communities onto queer communities around how we treat femininity and masculinity. We eroticize and sexualize and all but worship the feminine and we posture and vilify and demonize the masculine. I also notice that many feminine beings take issue with trans masculine energy in a way that is hurtful as if we are the embodiment of all things masculine and bad. As if we embody male rapists, molesters and sexual predators. Or fathers who have abandoned their feminine children. I notice a machismo and performativity and posturing of masculinity as well. Is this our only option for masculinity? I wish we would pay more attention and try not to do these things. Or perhaps those are the breaks when females choose to overtly consume masculinity.

I am beyond over able-bodied folk using examples of “accomplished” lesser able-bodied folk as reasons able-bodied folk have ‘no excuse’ for getting things done. It’s insulting. It’s hegemonic. It’s silencing. It’s mismanagement of power. It should stop. Like yesterday. Your “should do” should not be bounced off anyone but you. #Cease&Desist #ExitStageRight #TakeEveryAvailableSeat

So let me get this straight. Folk believe that Jesus was born of a virgin woman and that sin entered the world because a woman tempted a man to eat a forbidden fruit yet don’t believe when folk say they see ghosts or communicate with other spirit realms? Oh OK. Makes perfect sense. #RandomObservations
