The Los Angeles Femme of Color Collective wanted to create a hashtag that would launch a social media movement for all femmes of color to be able to participate in and benefit from:#FemmesOfColorVisibility is a tag that we generated in order to document our selfies as a form of resistance, as a way of combating femme invisibility and as a way of being intentional about creating a sense of community online and reclaiming space on social media.Having a hashtag that is specific about its intentions allows for people to build a sense of community, compliment and encourage one another, share their stories with each other, and gives people the opportunity to follow new accounts with similar interests or backgrounds. It gives people the opportunity to witness the brilliance, beauty and badassery that is femmes of color! Making our selfies visible allows us to empower, uplift and celebrate one another and to be in solidarity with each other. Selfies are an act of resistance because radical and unapologetic self-love defies the very principles of oppressive power structures within our society that are constantly trying to tell us that we should not exist and that we should be ashamed of our identities.
#FemmesOfColorVisibility is a big middle finger to femme invisibility within queer communities, people who delegitimize femme identities, oppressive and rigid standards of beauty/femmeness, cissexism, and other forms of marginalization. This hashtag means that we have something that is our own and unique to us. It represents organized resistance and can be used in combination with other tags to represent the complexities of our identities. It gives FoCs the opportunity to document our experiences and our images how we see fit- not how queer or heteronormative media representations think that we should be depicted.
Documenting our selfies with our stories of resistance can be a source of self-care and positive affirmation. We do not have to leave it in the hands of the media or bougie academia to accurately represent our lives- we have the power to do it ourselves through social media and grass-roots organizing.
Signal boost! Please spread the word to all the femmes of color in your life!

Dear Tumblr, I need your help. If anything I’ve ever written or posted or said or did has ever impacted your life in a positive way, please read on. A small donation could mean keeping my family safe from violence and homelessness. Every little bit helps.
The short version: my mom and my sister and my nephew were left homeless after my sister was assaulted in the home where they were staying. My grandmother died unexpectedly this week so they cannot stay with her (where they normally go in times of trouble). I am paying to keep them in a motel until the 29th of October but after that I am out of money. They need to keep a roof over their heads while they search for resources, meet with their social worker, and do everything else they can think of to secure longer-term housing for them and my baby nephew.You can donate now at www.youcaring.com/helpmargitte (because fuck gofundme).The long version:
Back in May, my 25-year-old sister Molly gave birth to a beautiful baby boy named Jericho. He is her first child, and my mother’s first grandbaby. 
Because he was born slightly premature and my sister, a single mom, needed extra help, my mother moved in with them to support her. 
Everything was going wonderfully at first. Jericho gained weight at a healthy pace, rarely cried, and was a generally happy and well-adjusted baby. My mom and my sister became a great co-parenting team, supporting each other, making sure they didn’t miss a single appointment, and providing all of the love, care, and attention Jericho needed.
But then my sister was physically assaulted by one of the male adults living in their home. He broke her nose, ruptured her eardrum, and gave her a concussion. 
Needless to say, my sister and my mother moved out. At first they went to my grandmother’s (Jericho’s great-grandma), but her senior living apartment managers wouldn’t let them stay. (In an unrelated series of events, my grandmother suddenly and unexpectedly passed away last week, and we are all still figuring out how to cope without her.)
Currently, my mom and sister and baby Jericho are staying at a motel that I am paying for out of pocket—but I only have enough money to keep them there through next Wednesday. 
That’s where you come in. 
My mom and my sister are spending their days searching for resources and getting on waiting lists for low-income housing. They have a social worker and others helping them out, but they need more time. 
I’m trying to raise enough money to keep them there for a full month or longer ($2000+) while they continue their search for other options. They also need gas money, food (they have a full kitchen in their motel room), and other essentials for them and the baby (diapers, money for laundry, etc.). 
Raising this money could mean the difference between them finding a place to live for good and being completely homeless. 
Thank you for considering donating to my family and helping me help them. And if you can’t donate, I’d love for you to share this with others. My family could really use a miracle right about now.

why is Ursula shunned from King Triton’s society? does it have something to do with being more powerful than him? why does King Triton have a magical trident, being otherwise a pretty regular merman? Ursula is a witch, if anyone should have a magical artifact it should be her, did King Triton steal it?
and finally, Ursula didn’t do Ariel much wrong
Ariel wanted some legs (and a vagina) and Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both
i’d watch the hell out of a movie about Ursula

“Ursula told her flat out that in the surface world you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”
ohhhh shit though, ursula was being too real about the world
although perhaps a bit too literal

Okay, these were all excellent points and I’ll never see The Little Mermaid the same way again.

I laughed at that caption at first then the reality actually hit me

you can have a vagina or a voice, not both”


NOW I PHYSICALLY NEED THIS MOVIE

yes to movie

As you enter a classroom ask yourself this question: “If there were no students in the room, could I do what I am planning to do?” If your answer to the question is yes, don’t do it.

Aside from the commonly asked questions about the family, class, educational, religious, and geographical background, I asked each transsexual the following questions: (a) Were they satisfied with the surgery? Did they ever look back and wish they had done it differently?…(b) What is their opinion of feminism?…(e) I asked transsexuals to react to the hypothetical situation of a role free society in which people were able to be themselves. Would they then feel it necessary to change sex? I also asked the transsexuals I interviewed how they would react to a hypothetical meeting with a feminist who told them they were reinforcing sex-role stereotypes by changing sex. (f) In some cases, where I felt I could express my own opinion, I admitted I was the feminist who felt much ambiguity about the rightness of transsexualism because it reinforced sex-role stereotypes.

I think gauze wound
around ankle, plaster poured

into a chest-shaped mold.
I think wet cement.

I say stone, and you think pebble
in stream or marble fountain or kimberlite.

I say gravel or grave
or ask me later. There are days

I mourn being built from this. Made
of so much aggregate

and gravestone, so little
diamond and fountain water.

When I was a construction crane
my balled fists

toppled buildings of boys.
I rifled through the pockets

of their ruins.
Ask what I’ve been. Detroit

is a stretch of highway littered
with windshield,

a boy picking the remains
of a window from his hair.

I say Detroit;
you think glass.

I say glass; you think atrium;
I say atrium beams

warped by heat;
think cathedral. My shoe soles

say stain. Glass between treads,
treads imprinted on gum.

Everything finds its bottom,
say the sewers.

Don’t come any closer,
begs a map of collapsed veins,

while the burnt-out colonial,
this empty lot,

and this alley-dark cavity
all say the shelter is sparse, yes,

but there is space here for bones—
a ribcage, brimming like yours.

— jamaal may, ask what i’ve been. (via overwhelmington)
