"It scares me to death to think that one day I might look back into my life and realize that I lived it painfully ordinary."
I scrolled for ten minutes after reading this and had to scroll all the way back, ‘cause damn.
this made me happy ^
What goes through my mind alllll the damn time.
does your brain ever just produce disturbingly violent thoughts out of nowhere
like terrible, horrible, thoughts
for no reason at all
and then you snap out of it and you’re like
i don’t want to kill my mom
what the fuck
they’re called intrusive thoughts and apparently are very common
I AM HERE FOR EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS.
It is a testament to this website that I immediately thought she had shorn off his ass with a sword and not that she had stolen his treasure
omfg are you telling me she didnt just cut ff his ass?
there’s blood of course she did
An average day’s worth of straight men in Amiyah Scott’s mentions. It’s one thing to dislike someone and to talk about them, but to go into their mentions?
This is so terrifying
This isn’t about disliking someone, this is transmisogyny, transmisogynoir, transophobia. This is hatred, in the strongest form. All these folks in her mentions can burn in a fire, get hit by a bus, whatever they aren’t deemed worth living to me. This is how unsafe Black Transwomen are, they can’t even exist in the comfort of their own space at home, on the internet without threats of violence, this horrific, and disgusting.
and what makes me so mad, and what’s an attitude that really needs to be fucking addressed in our community, is that so many of these men are threatening violence against her because they believe she’s trying to trick them. like this is how the media fucks with our perceptions because trans women have always been set up as a ‘trap’ to threaten the sexuality of the hetero-hypermale. they are operating within the myth that a) black women’s bodies automatically belong to black men for the pursuit of their pleasure and b) trans women’s bodies are ‘false’ and ‘deceitful’ female bodies, and by merely existing they are a threat to male heterosexuality.
trans women’s bodies are women’s bodies. women’s bodies belong to themselves. the world does not revolve around your shriveled ego and the satisfaction of your tragic libido.
^^ yes that. They’re attracted to them and their scared of it so they hate them.
Would love to say this was a surprise but it isn’t. Black transwomen have to deal with this every day in the inner city.
They stay thinking somebody’s existence is contingent on theirs. Get the fuck outta here.
