Truth! Fuck the ‘it gets better’ campaign!
Filing this under “things that may hurt for me to say but needs to be said.” it hit me when I was at a transgender day of remembrance event and hearing all the names of women in countries of color being read. (Brazil and Latino America in particular.) Queer people of color have the duel battle within their families and communities and then add that to having to be seen as valid as a poc. Shit is rough. Queer folks are devalued twice as hard. When you already don’t see someone has a human being and then dehumanized even more. It’s a lot easier to perpetuate acts of violence when there’s more than one reason to see them as invalid. It Gets Better fails to address the needs of anyone who isn’t young, white, and a cis male.
HOW DID THIS GET 110 REBLOGS BEFORE I SAW IT????
