everytime i see a cute ass black girl on campus i say silently in my head: ‘yes sis slay a lil bit’!
- Ya'll be like: I love black girls......with european features
- Ya'll be like: Black girls with afros are amazing...as long as they got light skin.
- Ya'll be like: Black girls are beautiful...but just the ones who are white passin' or as racially ambiguous as possible.
- Ya'll be like: Natural hair is the best hair...as long as the curls are really really loose.

cis people get pronouns. trans people get preferred pronouns.
cis people get a gender. trans people get to identify as a gender.
these are microaggressions designed to undermine and invalidate who we know ourselves to be, and to reinforce the perceived inauthenticity of trans people.
this is always harmful, and for some, primarily trans feminine people and esp trans feminine poc, it can be dangerous or deadly.
it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.
