I’m not blacking out. Fuck you. I don’t have to black out to be ignored. I’m black and a woman and not the right kind . I’m a specific kind of ignored anywho
I’m mitigated by oodles of privilege and Yet the constant reminder I have is two things : I’m a frigging ELEMENTAL force and that’s a REQUIREMENT
We did this already. And we’ve learned nothing . We are doing rallying cries and calls to action with no discussion that 53% of white women are fighting us
We’re focusing on “women’s socialization “ which is low key becoming a transphobic dog whistle to me
We watched an NBPOC actress try to ALL woman a black girl . I had to mute my mentions because the ya boos in it keep likening a black woman to Madea as she negotiates trying work to keep a racist on a bench
I just published a study that shows WOC and especially BW are already scared to talk
And y’all still think making BLACKNESS symbolic of nothingness and absence is the wave . Mind you my handle is BLACKAMAZON
Not only will I not black out ? I may Thirst trap the entire god damn day
The only thing more angry making than this is how like Pants Suit Nation and A day without women before it and frankly #metoo and #timesup ? These actions take the love and care and the desire for change and solidarity in people
And make them be measured by barometers of performance dreamed up by marketing and policy wonks PAID MORE THAN 3 black women COMBINED to be lazy underresearched and mean
and I’m telling everyone . Because I’m tired of folks taking peoples deep desire to TRY and issuing dictums rather than offering support
Millions of women got traumatized by feeling erased so rather than ya know heal them we’re gonna prove a point to... who
Don’t black out. Go support your friends . Have a meal with people you feel safe with. Have good sex with someone you can trust
Read a book have some ice cream . Until these assholes value taking care of each other over making a point to dudes ? Don’t you dare silence yourself for these people
We spent a WEEK feeling unheard unloved and unsupported by everything but this deep recognition of how we were HURT. and they don’t even want to make GESTURES to healing that
But they got op Ed’s and thought pieces on voting and activation and not a thing on therapy

So @thewayoftheid is a very good friend, I had a panic attack and I’m still off but , I feel the need to say this so I’m gonna . They are emboldened by Kavanauhg
And this is why when folks talk about legal versus illegal or “choose another target” i am a marauding hell beast
The goal is divide and concur of stereotyping immigrants, of making the language more and more comfortable in our discourse .

Know what imma say this once : if you think calling cops on sex workers is cute , or real ? Unfollow or block my ass right now . Because you’re not hateful to dumb ass is worse than the fed
You really out here dry snitching claiming to be real , talking cash money shit when the internet hasn’t seen your face without a filter since Geocities ?

So the spin being put on this is “oh families” and how terrible... but can we reframe this ? Can we talk about how many folks say “ oh I can’t check ______” because family and here 67 percent of this man’s siblings went on camera to say “ This ain’t it”
And there are epistemological critiques to be made but these aren’t public people.there careers and personas aren’t knowledge or communication , but they recognized the had power... and then did something
People like to be really god damn glib about “ Vote blue !!! Don’t let perfect be the enemy of good” but not honest about the power their positions and the positions of others have ... and what action can be.

She was in actual tears. On calls every star who watches her sport was furious at in real time.
And that’s what happens . Like I’m no great champion and people want blood . She “made them look bad”
And because what I am is a petty bitch? I want all these women who are discovering the horror and talking misogyny to run back how they wrote about Beyoncé , or Seren l or Rihanna
