I WILL MACE THE SHIT OUTTA YOU, white GIRL!!!

quigleygoesdown:

A white girl named Cassie slapped me in my face in 6th grade. She did this in the middle of class & my white male teacher defended her. When I was 21, a white female acquaintance slapped me across the face & laughed about it. She said, “I felt like slappin’ someone.” She left a small bruise on my face. I am a Black queer man & never dated a white chick but I have a history of them puttin’ their hands on me & in my face. The next time I goin’ to mace the fuck out of any white woman who puts her hands on me. PERIOD.

WHITE WOMEN, KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF PEOPLE!!! YOU ARE USING YOUR PRIVILEGE TO PERPETUATE AGRESSION & VIOLENCE AGAINST PEOPLE OF COLOR!!!

^^

All of my domestic violence experiences have been cis white women physically attacking me in front of other white people, but that’s because I don’t date cis white men. Trust, I’ve had them physically abuse me plenty, as well.

What in the hell am I going to wear to STL Pride this weekend? Photo unrelated.

Does gasping for air count as a clever and flirty comment?
