In other words, how many white people, how many generations of white people, have existed in an extended state of childishness? How many of us are just babies screaming and hitting and shitting ourselves?
I wonder a lot about white liberalism, white guilt, white hunger for black approval, and the role of the white child being raised by black slaves in the slave owning family. I think about all the desperate need and contradictory feelings that a child directs to their caregivers, and I think about the generations of white children, most of whom would grow up to be, like their slave-owning parents, rich and powerful, some of whom would shape white culture in their own image.
everything about computers is so deeply terrible that any arguing “actually i like my computer” feels like it comes from the lips of a swamp monster rising up from a pool of shit
men love to consume stories where the women who repeatedly and firmly reject the advances of men are secretly into them and then go and make advances on women who aren't interested in them irl, be angry that those women won't go out with them despite what their stories said, then go and write stories where the women who repeatedly and firmly reject the advances of men are actually secretly into them to cheer themselves up
Looking for info/resources for a trans kid, boosts++
My best friend's AFAB 10-year-old is using male pronouns and expressing interest in transitioning. My friend and her husband are supportive but in need of information and resources and in a tight spot financially. I transitioned as an adult, so I don't really know what's available for kids now.
Can anyone recommend resources for transmasculine kids or their parents that I could pass along? Anything would be helpful. Thanks!
Sometimes we love people
just because they know us. In the spaces we have grown
before we knew how to. It’s not a bad love
supported by time
and our own need for mythos
on mythos. To show this love
to new people
and say this is my scribe – this is my story.
Sometimes we love people
for the shard of history
that reflects your heart
before you knew better.
The US colonial power denied self-government to the Philippines from 1898 until 1946, on the theory that Filipinxs were not ready for self-government. How are a people to become able for self gov't without self gov't; also I have increasing doubt the US has demonstrated a capacity for self government
