-Don’t say “Gypsy”. Or “Gypped”. No matter how it’s spelled.
-Correct others who use the words.
-Punch Holocaust deniers in the throat.

Last words of unarmed black youth gunned down by law enforcement.
"There are reasons why white gun’s rights activists can walk into a Chipotle restaurant with assault rifles and be seen as gauche nuisances while unarmed black men are killed for reaching for their wallets or cell phones, or carrying children’s toys. Guns aren’t for black people, either.”
from America is Not For Black People
“…if you live your whole life and then die without making a purposeful choice to become a white ally then American racism becomes your legacy.”
okay there is a fantasy novel out there in the world about two male cis elf twins. one is a reckless fellow who rides a gryphon. the other, I think, is a mage who does something to make the elder twin flee to the forests.
the story follows the elf in the forest as he learns to survive. he meets a skilled tracker elf woman who shows him how to run around barefoot in the forest. they fall in love.
I can’t remember much more of the story.
does this sound familiar to anyone?
EDIT: nevermind, found it by searching “fantasy novel elf twins”.

THIS IS ME. Not sure if I ever reblogged this image, but it became quite popular. I was on my early transition when I was visiting Montréal from Brazil, in a very hot summer day. I was invited to do my burlesque show on the after party of the Dyke March, which was a rad stand of them against transphobia. This what taken in the march itself, in the Gay Village. I heard critics about the way i was dressed and about the fact it seemed to some people I was highliting trans misogyny as a different form of mysogyny.
my dear friend, Sophia, who is a wise and intelligent witch.
trans family gotta stick together. <3
