"I am homesick for a place I am not sure even exists. One where my heart is full. My body loved. And my soul understood."
Just a thought.
Fuck shit up together! lol, I like this a lot.
This is literally priceless
Oh queer latin@s are the best ;)
Interesting article about mixed identities. I will have to contemplate these words for a while.
I love my growing #plants. Makes me happy when they grow into something new ^_^ #nofilter #basil #cilantro
I am so sick of white girls trying to say they care about the plight of brown folk when they PROFIT from our fucking misery. Acknowledge your privilege, get over it and let us step up and take charge.
The worst part is, I almost felt sorry for you. Then I remembered, you still have it better financially than most of my friends and family. Your lifestyle and career are CHOICES. We do not get choices, we get shitty people thinking they can tell us what to do with our lives and how to do them.
FUCK YOUR PRIVILEGE!
"We can never obtain peace in the outer world until we make peace with ourselves"
I have been working since 9 this morning, every day lately has been non-stop. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining I’m just contemplating on how much things change in only two months. Taking it all in, being grateful and happy that I have so many blessings in my life.

Some nights I can’t sleep because my thoughts are a run on sentence. I wish I could have some silence but even in my sleep my mind is working through things. I guess it is good to analyze things. My only problem is stopping…

#BreakICE #NotFamilies! This Valentine’s Day @WhiteHouse will hear our roar: #Not1More deportation!
There is truth to stereotypes, but this does not mean that somebody should feel pressured to follow one because it’s what society says they should do. A christian gay does not have to become agnostic. A femme does not have to become butch just to be seen as a lesbian (an issue known as Femme Invisibility). A masculine straight girl should not have to prove that she is straight by becoming feminine!
Stereotypes are not a tool for you to find out somebody’s sexuality or gender identity.
Um. Your first example is total BS. A dude calling a straight girl a dyke because he thinks she’s a lesbian hurts lesbians a lot more than it hurts the straight girl. And the straight girl being offended at being mistaken for a lesbian hurts lesbians too.
And wrt to your second example: society (which, is sadly not led by lesbians, let alone butch lesbians) does not pressure women to appear unfeminine, which is why butch lesbians are treated terribly. And although within the lesbian community there may be some stigma against femmes, this is a reasonable reaction considering how poorly butches are treated outside of the community (and I’ll buy “femme invisibility” when feminine lesbians are not the only kind of lesbians who get any real representation in the media - and I’m speaking as a feminine lesbian).Agreed. I’ll only buy into the “femmephobia” mantra found on tumblr when I see nearly ubiquitous, *positive* representations of butch lesbians— especially butch lesbians of Color and “third-world”/Global South butch lesbians— in the media, entertainment and fashion industries. Lesbians are only “acceptable” so long as they’re feminine, thin (white/Western) and physically pleasing to hetero males and provide them with porno-fodder.
