Fantasy Homeland

“I want to be magic. I want to touch the heart of the world and make it smile. I want to be a friend of elves and live in a tree. Or under a hill. I want to marry a moonbeam and hear the stars sing. I don't want to pretend at magic anymore. I want to be magic.” ~Charles de Lint

expecting marginalized people to stop discussing or calling out their oppressors to say “except for you” just so you can feel reassured that you’re a Good Person means you are a shitty ally, and until you realize that your feelings are not and will never be a priority in these discussions, you will remain part of the problem.

What’s interesting about the reaction to Davuluri’s crowning isn’t that teenagers say stupid things, but that people are uncomfortable with a woman of color being held up as an ideal of All-American beauty and femininity.
If you read any of the articles about racist Miss America tweets, you need to read this too.

Because my mother told me that all I needed to do was get drunk and lie back and let me husband have his fun. Because if I was drunk, I’d be more relaxed and it’d be over sooner

Because my sister told me that I was trapping my husband in an abusive marriage, and…

Stories matter. Many stories matter. Stories have been used to dispossess and to malign, but stories can also be used to empower and to humanize. Stories can break the dignity of a people, but stories can also repair that broken dignity.

TO EVERYONE WHO THINKS WE ARE LIVING IN A POSTRACIAL WORLD. FUCKING READ THIS. CITED FROM REAL PSYCHOLOGICAL RESEARCH.

To everyone who says they “don’t see color.” Open your fucking eyes and READ.

"the effect is to negate their experiences as racial/cultural human beings"

Language is never neutral.

When you say “I don’t see color” what you’re saying is “I don’t see you I see my own illusion of you.”

A Beautiful TRANS*formation is a 8 - 10 minute film on Trans* culture. This short documentary shows the everyday life through the eyes of three brave transgender people who share their story.

I am a young Toronto film student planning on filming a short documentary for equality. For this film, I will need two brave transgender people who are willing to share their story and speak up towards equality. 

If you live in Toronto and are interested in telling your story, contact me at the links listed below. People needed before October 20th. No pay, but I’ll buy you food. 

If you don’t live in Toronto and want to help, reblog and like to share this information!
