Because I live in a world where people who resemble me feel great when someone tells them “they don’t look like a black girl”.
Because I live in a world where as soon as a white girl discovers all the privilege she has and wants to figure out how to dismantle white supremacy and shares it with her friends, those friends are all ears to listen, whereas beforehand they’d scoff at any poc’s testimony of living in a racist society.
Because Cece McDonald has the same charge as George Zimmerman.
Because queer means white punk chicks that look like Kathleen Hanna.
Because women always means cis, white straight women.
Because if you’re queer and fat, you don’t exist.
