a little love story about mermaids and tattoos
Also on the note of queers surrounding themselves with only people that fuck the same kinds of people they do —
Have you ever noticed how overwhelmingly white those communities are too? It’s ALMOST like race and sexuality have something to do with each other. ALMOST. And I’m not talking about u get out of jail free because self ID’d brown people flit in and out of your life or u follow eachothers blogs.
I’m saying I recognize queers building communities around sexuality but can you implicate yourself FOR ONCE and talk about how you aren’t friends with a single dark-skinned or non white-passing person of colour either? No matter how many gay, bi,het, ace friends you have? Cause like we know about the exclusivity of queer communities based on sex and the body but can we notice that y’all won’t even fucking LOOK at or INTERACT with us (visibly black, brown skinned non white-passing people of colour) on a daily basis out of your own volition? Like enough to have those racialised people in your friend groups? The kind you can tell are brown and black cause their skin is?
Oooop. Didn’t think so.
for some reason I really don’t want to leave my house or go to class today. Feeling like I wanna skip it a bit.
