Poem of the Day!
My mind makes beautiful things
ugly. Even you.
Thanks to grrlyman for being such a perfect figure drawing model!
as a queer person trying to get sober/keep sober/just not interested in alcohol or drugs, what resources do you need?
what can i do for you? what can we do for each other?
I need to know that my community is gonna show up to an event/party etc knowing that it was a sober space. Like, I want to build sober spaces where I live but I’m just worried that no one will show up. Or that they will pre-game and show up high or drunk and I’m like, that defeats the purpose.
Being around drugs and alcohol usually doesn’t bother me but it would be nice to have the option of just being in a sober space (and then I also won’t have to take care of everyone)
i would love to have a queer event where we actually *talk* about sobriety and drug ab/use and how to support each other?
i also hate how ageism is never brought up and how that ties directly to spaces that are 21+ b/c of alcohol. there are so many queer youth who need to see other/older/fellow queers having a good time, and i think that alcohol use in spaces (or holding events in clubs, bars, etc) is hugely isolation for queer youth and bars them from doing intergenerational work.
If you think respectability politics is the solution to racism, your opinion is useless.
Fuck that they never took us seriously and never will.
that’s what i’m saying. they aint take us seriously back then. we still niggas in suits. fuck that.
they didn’t take us seriously. that’s why they killed him.
they shot him and he was wearing a suit
Y’all forreal need to quit with these respectability politics, them dudes on the bottom aren’t doing anything that would warrant any disrespect
it hurts me that so many black people really believe this and that proving shit to white people is even the goal to begin with. they have BEEN laughing at us and they always will. sagging pants weren’t poppin when sambo jezebel sapphire picaninny etc first came about cmon.
when they took us seriously.
