Afropunk was pretty amazing. I was there to sell zines, but I didn’t sell much :[ But I brought #8 Trust the Knife and #11 My Anxiety is My Lover, so…. I get it. People were there to have fun, not get all melancholy.

I saw H09909 and they were pretty bad ass and dude jumped on the photographer.

I saw Creature from Rebelmatic a bunch of times and gave him my zines. He remembered me from Rockers BBQ Weekend. He was so nice! and chatty as hell :)

I won some underwear from Elixher magazine, so I wore them as shorts the next day. The two booth workers were SO delighted when they saw me “frolicking” in the undies.

I saw this person busting his ass hustling, working way harder than anyone else I’d seen. And I noticed he was handing out this flyer. So I apologized and asked if I could talk to him for a second, and asked why he was busting his ass so hard- in a more polite, diplomatic way.

He said he’d been in Ferguson, and seen what was happening, seen grandmas and kids get shot with rubber bullets, and told me a bunch of other stuff that you can read about if you find reputable news outlets with integrity, because as he pointed out the much of mass media is not telling the truth about what’s happening in Ferguson.

During Body Count, Ice T told us to “BE COURAGEOUS.”

When I was talking to flyer dude he expressed a tiny frustration, and said “Afropunk is like a fashion show, no shade” but that NYCers need to think about this stuff, and help so that they are prepared if it happens in NYC.

Afropunk was amazing becauseI felt FREE and welcome, but there is work to do so that others are free and welcome, to maintain and expand our civil rights. I felt free enough to wear underwear in public that said “QUEER” on my ample ass, and no one was anything but AWESOME to me. There is always work to be done,

tw rape aftermath

The next day or two I told my boyfriend “I had sex with this guy.” We were in a pseudo-poly thing, anywayssssss, I wanted to make sure that he thought I was still fit to have sex with, and it was this really emotional thing of me being terrified of being rejected (for being raped which I didn’t quite get yet) so I was crying and freaked the fuck out and when he forgave me I was so happy.

I was happy so I quit crying and started smiling and felt like my life wasn’t quite falling all to pieces and I wanted hugs and happiness

but he was like wtf you phony why are you so happy now, you were just crying?

I got confused and scared because I didn’t understand why it was wrong for me to express my emotions, why he was angry for me at having emotions. I was scared he was going to abandon me and find me unfit after all, but because my emotions were wrong.

Why am I thinking of this today????????? Because men keep telling me my emotions are wrong, but my emotions just are.

NYPD officer pictured ‘putting seven-months pregnant woman into a chokehold for illegally grilling outside her apartment’

An advocacy group has released images which claim to show an NYPD officer putting a seven-months pregnant woman into a chokehold for illegally grilling on the sidewalk in front of her apartment. 
NYPD officers have been banned from using the chokehold since 1993, but an officer can be seen in the pictures wrapping his arm around 27-year-old Rosan Miller’s neck in the Saturday incident. 
Her young daughter is also in the pictures, watching the arrest unfold.

Illegally grilling on the sidewalk! What a hardened, dangerous criminal! And I bet that little girl now has a very solid grasp on who she can trust and what’s ok to do to women and/or people who are physically weaker than you!

A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

I don’t know who any of these folks are.

They were tourists I presume.

But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

"Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

(Laughs.)

There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

"One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.

Charlie Sheen smokes crack live in a web-chat and they make him the highest paid actor on television.

An 18-year-old black person smokes a blunt and he is unfit to live.

I see you white power.

Sexuality and dating is a scary mess to me. I kinda just don’t want to deal with it at all…

But, I kinda should maybe because that stuff is often a part of healthy full rounded humanity. I at least need to get to a point where I understand my sexuality because if I just bury my head in the sand that is not cool/healthy.

And it’s tempting to just date cis men because it’s low effort and familiar but groossssssssss also NO IT’S FAMILIAR so, like… I dunno.
