and it’s my personal opinion that “judging somebody by their skin color (or sexuality, gender, etc)” is…shitty, but whatever. WHO CARES. if you look at me and see a breeding animal or a invading cockroach? I don’t really all that much give a shit.
what I *DO* give a shit about is you USING THAT JUDGEMENT TO DENY ME RESOURCES, LIFE, SAFETY, AND/OR HAPPINESS.
so even if every single person of color ever in the entire world thinks JUDGE ALL WHITE PEOPLE BY THEIR SKIN COLOR—until those judging people of color start denying white people voting writes, quality food, clean water, warm houses, jobs to buy all this with, AND they start building coal burning plants in their neighborhoods, shooting their children in the backs, arresting them protesting for educations, etc etc etc etc???? UNTIL THAT TIME HAPPENS—
white folks need to sit down and contemplate “racism” and “white supremacy” in a way that extends beyond quoting dictionaries.

wow. this is disgusting. how dare a privileged white man create (false & seriously fucked up) parallels between growing up and living in a society that has expectations (i.e. career expectations, behavioural expectations, various norms) to the racist and systematic violence, lynching, torture, murders, and subjugation of Black people (and other people of colour throughout history) all for some overdramatic allegedly “insightful”quotation that would be considered oh so deep??? do not compare actual oppression to adolescent problems and demean/trivialize the struggles and deaths of victims of real violence, slavery, and racism. ignorant pretentious bullshit. also Shakespeare originally wrote this.

- He raises a really great point. What would it mean to believe very early that my body was mine. That it’s not for anyone or for any particular purpose other than to be mine until I decide otherwise.
I was damned near 30 before I could believe my body belonged to me & me alone. Dear people who take an issue with this,
Let the Smiths do right by their babies & shut the fuck up about how you think they should parent.
Lot of love for Will Smith right now.
I wish my parents realized that when I was growing up.
This. Stop calling this little girl fresh or grown. When I was 10, I cut all my hair off. At 14, after it had all grown back, I did it again. It didn’t change who I was or make me grown up. The Black community as a whole puts to much emphasis on hair - I actually almost was beat up for cutting my hair off under the logic that so many girls wanted hair like mine and I go and cut mine of…um…my hair. my body. my business.
