PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST THE FUCK OUTTA THIS

I’m starting a forum for QTIPOC where users can be as anonymous (or not) as possible. I’ve accidentally outed myself in the past through joining open groups and I’ve been thinking for a while about how much easier it would be to share resources, facilitate discussions, vent, organise, create support networks and enforce a safe space for QTIPOC if we were to organise outside of Facebook. qtipocbrighton made me feel like I’ve finally come home but there is a distinct lack of resources for QTIPOC that don’t have access to local groups and/or don’t want to be outed by joining Facebook groups.

If anyone is interested in helping me out with this then please message me. If you can contribute graphics, want to help me moderate or spread the word then please let me know! Any suggestions as to privacy settings, forum organisation, rules etc would be really appreciated.

Register now and get involved! Any/all feedback is really appreciated. What do you want from QTIPOC.com?

Also.Also.Also: Mary Lambert is Writing Children’s Books About Women in STEM and Other Stories We Missed This Week

Hello bookworms! This week the library I work at is experiencing a “book shift,” which means that I am helping move lots and lots of books from the shelves onto carts and into…

Respectability politics are so trash. Black men/Latinos in hoodies and baggy pants don’t deserve to be shot or mistreated just like women in short skirts don’t deserve to be raped. Any idiot with two brain cells to rub together would know that Martin Luther King was murdered in a suit and women in the 1800’s that were wearing long, complicated, thick ass dresses were still sexually assaulted. Stop that nonsense.

Gonna keep a tally of messages I get from a) white feminists completely proving my point and b) people who think this comic proves feminism is worthless because I criticized one part of it. (Even despite me writing these words underneath the comic.) Then I’ll add them all up, see which column has more, and then drink myself to sleep either way.
Haha… this is why we can’t have nice things.

It’s Time for White Feminists to Stop Talking About Solidarity and Start Acting

I wasn’t always a feminist, let alone one with intersectional awareness and a politicised pride in my Blackness. When I first dove hungrily into feminism, starved as I was of any meaningful…

oh my gosh! it’s up! OH MY GOSH!!!

You should definitely all go read this, then swiftly follow Kesiena.
