When I was 12 boys slid their hand up my thigh and slapped my butt. I smiled and took it because I didn’t know it was okay to say stop. I didn’t know that I could say no. So, when the principal calls telling me my daughter is suspended for punching a boy who wouldn’t stop touching her, I will cook her favorite meals. When she tells me how she cursed at the boy who wouldn’t move his hands off her knee even though she asked him to, I will smile and pull out her favorite movie to watch together. I will celebrate the fact that she accepts her body as her own and knows she has the right to say no. I never want my daughter to think her body belongs to men, because it is her own and my god should she be proud. I will teach her it’s more than okay to say stop, something I wish I had known when I was that age.

I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it…

I feel that assuming a non-conforming kid is automatically transexual actually reinforces the idea of a solid, inherent gender binarity instead of breaking it. If you’re a boy and you like “girl stuff” like skirts and dolls and hair accessories, does it mean you’re actually a girl? Or does it just mean that associations between gender and types of clothing and gendered play are taught instead of inherent? A non-conforming kid might end up being trans, or not. They might end-up being gay, which was my case. Or they might end up just being non-conforming. Non-conformity doesn’t mean you need a new gender. It means the whole idea of gender is broken as fuck.

When MLK said “I they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character" he was saying that ‘I hope one day that i can walk down the street without being stereotyped and killed’

Why would he be talking about white people.

In what world would be trying to fight for “white rights” or for white people to be treated ‘equally’ when they already had a majority of the power, what fucking sense does that make.
