Annie (a pseudonym) is a Chinese-American, straight, female university professor. While she was in graduate school, she found it difficult to receive medical treatment due to the perceived psychiatric condition of simply being Asian and female: “I went to a doctor at the university because I had recurring abdominal pain. The doctor listened to my description, but rather than doing a physical exam, he explained to me that it was normal for Asian women to be anxious and stressed out, and anxiety was probably causing my abdominal pain.” But surprisingly, the doctor didn’t treat the anxiety either. He just said there was nothing he could do. Shattering the Madness Monolith: On the Intersections of Race, Gender, and Psychiatric Disability (via andromedalogic)

Fetish communities have this thing - YKINMK (your kink is not my kink, but that’s okay).

And, what happens, is misogynists and racists grab onto that. Their hatred and violence towards women and PoC are just fetishes! And you can’t help what turns you on! 

So, we must all respect whatever way oppressors want to dehumanize people, because it gets them off. 

It’s all okay now, if you just sexualize oppression.

i stopped identifying as tenderqueer because i felt like most people claiming this wanted tenderness without reciprocating. i am tender and am tender to people i love and don’t expect people to reward me for being a masculine person who expresses feelings. i felt like most masculine people who claimed tenderqueer felt entitled to rewards and praise for showing emotion and vulnerability.

Changing the way we talk is not political correctness run amok. It reflects an admirable willingness to acknowledge others who once were barely visible to the dominant culture, and to recognize that something that may seem innocent to you may be painful to others. David Plotz  (via manic-and-panic)

‎Poverty is not fate, it is a condition; it is not a misfortune, it is an injustice. It is the result of social structures and mental and cultural categories, it is linked to the way in which society has been built, in its various manifestations. Gustavo Gutiérrez (via vul-va)
