Children of color are old enough to face racism when they’re born. Old enough to bear the weight of stereotypes & hate before their little eyes can focus. But somehow white kids are supposed to be too delicate & too shielded to even know race exists because somehow that might hurt them. When your definition of innocent child doesn’t include my babies? I know what you’re on & I don’t have any patience for the lies you tell yourself or your children.

The horrible dichotomy of having to prove you’re disabled/sick enough but not too disabled/sick. #AcademicAbleism

-IsaJennie ‏@igmurray 15h

This is about the burden of disabilities, mental illnesses, and chronic illnesses in academia but I’m guessing it applies to pretty much any setting where one can request services for disabilities.  Or just life in general.

Has anyone ever come up with a compelling reason why ANY single-stall bathroom that locks from the inside should be designated Men or Women?

If I were queen of the world I would literally just abolish that practice immediately. Like I understand why some people are super uncomfortable with gender-neutral public style bathrooms even if I think their fears are mostly unfounded. But I kind of feel like nobody would give a shit (ha, no pun intended) if we just silently took all the gender signs off the single stall bathrooms?

Lots of establishments already function with only one bathroom that everybody uses. Everywhere that currently has gendered single-stalls would now have two bathrooms you could comfortably use, instead of one (if you’re cis) or possibly zero (if you’re trans or nonbinary).

This can also be incredibly helpful for people who, for medical and such reasons, occupy the restroom for longer periods of time. So you don’t have to choose between hurting yourself trying to find a different location and depriving everyone of your gender in the facility of a restroom.

Casual reminder that an actual Lesbian woman co-wrote Same Love but never gets acknowledged for her work.

Casual reminder that she took the chorus for Same Love and made a sweet queer love song out of it.

Also: Angel Haze, a Pansexual Black woman covered Same Love and made it 100x more compelling than the original.

Casual reminder that Thrift Shop was stolen from a Black queer rapper who was ignored when he pointed out the bullshit.
