It is so funny to me that trans women really think drag culture is transmisogynistic. I PROMISE that drag queens are NOT trying to look like u, they’re caricatures of cis women, not trans women

When I get in the lunch line, I know what’s going to happen. Rather than get mad or ashamed, I just try to own it. It’s not easy, but it is what it is.


When I get to the cashier, I don’t hurry her, or yell at her, or get annoyed or frustrated. I just say, “I’m in the Free Lunch Program. My name’s Rex Ogle.”


The old woman licks her fingers and thumbs through the pages in the red folder. For the first time, I see her nametag. I wonder if she’s always worn it. She probably has, and I feel a little bad about that. All those times I wanted her to memorize my name and I never bothered to learn hers. Her name is Peggy..


I ask, “How were your holidays, Peggy?”


She smiles. “Oh, they were lovely. Thanks for asking.”


Peggy pencils in a little checkmark in the red folder, and says, “Did you have a good New Year?”


I nod. I did. And I’m ready for my fresh start.

Aww, thanks for sending this! 💖

1) my lips. They’re like my absolute fav thing bout me.

2) my eyes. Love the shape of them.

3) my personality as a whole. It’s pretty interesting lol

4) I like that people always say I give off super calm and chill vibes & that I can easily calm people down & make them feel at ease.

5) I really like that even though I don’t show my emotions often and I can be hard to read that I’m super compassionate & empathetic towards others.

Americans deify democracy in a way that allows for a dim awareness that they have, from time to time, stood in defiance of their God. But democracy is a forgiving God and America’s heresies—torture, theft, enslavement—are so common among individuals and nations that none can declare themselves immune. In fact, Americans, in a real sense, have never betrayed their God. When Abraham Lincoln declared, in 1863, that the battle of Gettysburg must ensure “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth,” he was not merely being aspirational; at the onset of the Civil War, the United States of America had one of the highest rates of suffrage in the world. The question is not whether Lincoln truly meant “government of the people” but what our country has, throughout its history, taken the political term “people” to actually mean. …


Thus America’s problem is not its betrayal of “government of the people,” but the means by which “the people” acquired their names.

This leads us to another equally important ideal, one that Americans implicitly accept but to which they make no conscious claim. Americans believe in the reality of “race” as a defined, indubitable feature of the natural world. Racism—the need to ascribe bone-deep features to people and then humiliate, reduce, and destroy them—inevitably follows from this inalterable condition. In this way, racism is rendered as the innocent daughter of Mother Nature, and one is left to deplore the Middle Passage or the Trail of Tears the way one deplores an earthquake, a tornado, or any other phenomenon that can be cast as beyond the handiwork of men.

But race is the child of racism, not the father. And the process of naming “the people” has never been a matter of genealogy and physiognomy so much as one of hierarchy. Difference in hue and hair is old. But the belief in the preeminence of hue and hair, the notion that these factors can correctly organize a society and that they signify deeper attributes, which are indelible—this is the new idea at the heart of these new people who have been brought up hopelessly, tragically, deceitfully, to believe that they are white.

These new people are, like us, a modern invention. But unlike us, their new name has no real meaning divorced from the machinery of criminal power. The new people were something else before they were white—Catholic, Corsican, Welsh, Mennonite, Jewish—and if all our national hopes have any fulfillment, then they will have to be something else again. Perhaps they will truly become American and create a nobler basis for their myths.

–Ta-Nehisi Coates, Between the World and Me

#Ta-Nehisi Coates#book babbling#lit geekery#this is one of those books that is constantly coming up as an act of political reading; the sort of thing I was constantly reminding myself#to get round too. and feeling rather guilty because I knew it was a vital part of the convo I was missing. And then I heard Ta-Nehisi on#Chris Hayse's podcast and was just. floored. not only by the clarity of his thoughts but at how readily he stepped onto the fourth rails of#discussion in our modern era: his utter. deserved saltiness about American exceptionalism; the way in which he just brutally eviscerated#the idea of the events of the Trump presidency being some aboration rather than the newest itteration in a long. long pattern of American#minoritarian rule. but mostly. honestly. the exceptionalism thing. I've rarely heard thinkers link up the intersections of the overblown#American myth abroad to racism at home. So I went yep. it's time I pick this up; the entire conceit of the book is that it's a letter to#his teen son. and I've cut some stuff directed toward him that doesn't make sense out of context. but I wanted to capture this quote in its#entirety. the idea of deifying! democracy holy shit; to the extent that we forgive our own barbarism I'd never seen that metaphor employed#like that and now it's jangling about in my head sparking off all sorts of ideas. and the racism as mother nature discussion and how#that allows the excusing of the inexcusable. this man's thinking is just pure knife-sharp clarity and I'm in awe#politics

HH— DANG I WASNT EXPECTING THAT REACTION 😂😭

okay but my musings are essentially this;

the reason im so invested in shoto is because i see him as someone who’s practically perfect but doesnt have a good grasp on his emotions due to how he grew up, and i really want to support him and validate his feelings and help him heal and give him all the affection he’s been missing for so long yknow? and in turn he’d get attached to me and give me the devotion i’m looking for so it’d be a mutualistic kind of thing

but with kirishima he’s ALSO pretty much perfect, but in a different way, like his character isn’t lacking anything and tho he has a history of insecurity that’s easily dealt with by the support systems he already has, so its like i dont have anything to offer him? in a way¿ so i don’t really see him realistically being attracted to me cause there’s nothing special about me other than my emotional maturity lmao, plus there’s my whole thing about him being into working out and me having no desire for it despite my weight so being with an especially fit person would kinda make me feel guilty sjshkfhs

#it has a similar energy to its fine all the bleeding was internal thats where the blood is supposed to be#except its funnier bc i came up with it#connor talks#I want. to try. a multi chapter thing. but who knows how itll go#especially with dan vs because thats the smallest fandom i could have possibly picked DSHADL#LISTEN everything needs a huge slowburn fuck you. but also fuck me bc im the one who decided to try and write it#i mean it doesnt actually matter how many people read it if it makes me happy lol#that one i did got 11 kudos and i cha cha slide in my room every time i get an emai lnotification#almost at a hundo hits babeeeey thats awesome#oh man. ive said too much lol#this is why i never published the first chapter of that awesome pinescone fantasy au because it was GOOD. but theres only one chapter#and there is still only one chapter. and there will probably continue to be only one chapter. see my issue#my favorite work and yall cant see it... im sorry but also not sorry bc im sparing you from dissapointment#just like. to give you an idea. most nights as i lay in bed daydreaming to fall asleep i like to write a few lines in a google doc#so then if i get an idea and it gets rolling then it turns into like a fully formed idea rather than a disjointed scene#THEN if inspiration strikes ill spend waking hours actually writing and probably finish it the same day i post it#so. like. im somewhere between step 2 and 3 bc im working on it during the day but theres not like A LOT to it just yet#just. yeah.#this is going to sound conceited but ive always sort of wanted to have a fic thats on the first page results when you sort by kudos#and i feel like with dan vs the pool is so small i might be able to achieve that LOL#although MAN... i do have to compete with like a DECADE of time those old ones have been published for...#but u kno... with a multi chapter thing people read it more... have more chances to see it and read it for the first time... ;)#also i see yall waking up from the dead... ily... <3 <3 <3
