I hear a fell voice screaming
The ice inside my throat is slipping down into my stomach,
And all the little devils that dance upon my thoughts
Are laughing as the remnants of my sanity rot.
And my fingertips are
As I fall
If I could run for cover, or crawl
Underneath the fish-bone sand,
The blackened heath,
The bloodless land
Don’t you think that I would do it?
How pathetic you must think me
For forgetting how to breathe,
For the panic that crawls in
And chokes the life out of me,
For the darkness it paints upon
There’s no comfort to offer me,
Nothing I can believe.
I hear a voice
I collect aggressions not like scars or bruises but like pinpricks and paper cuts. Little things. It’s the little things: the angry words that singe my ears, the never-ending questions, the flicker of recognition in their eyes. Enough to be the Other without the endless reminders. For you, the faces are mirrors. For you, the voices are familiar. But when you look on me, reflections are distorted, and my voice is discordant and strange. Enough to be the Other without these endless reminders devoid of malice but dripping with malignance. Hate me for the sickness that I feel. Hate me for how I bruise so easily. Were my skin only thick like pure white marble, like good brown earth, then maybe. Then maybe.

I really dislike how some people act as if privilege is always black and white. I really dislike how they try to enforce this by dismissing people that don’t fit into their reality. I dislike how they dismiss that privilege, like almost everything in our lives, is a wide spectrum and we can be privileged in some way why being underprivileged in other.
I am an homosexual woman, and also a member of a minority religion (which can be a problem in France). I was bullied for being homosexual during high school. Homophobia and misogyny is still pervasive in French society. But I am also an able white Western European (French), middle-class cis person. I have a roof on my head, I am able to study abroad with the help of my parents, I am supported by my family.
Compared to someone like a homeless white heterosexual cisman, I am still heavily privileged, even if, for some people on Tumblr, a white hetero cisman can’t have any problems in his life. I have food in my pantry and clean water whenever I want. I don’t have to worry about the cold months because I have somewhere warm to live.
It doesn’t erase the fact that I could be attacked for what I am and that people fight to strip off my rights. But it does highlight the fact that each situation is different and we can both privileged and underprivileged. Every one of us can be, even in small ways, more privileged than someone else.
And that’s why using privilege in a black and white way can be extremely toxic. Pushed to its extreme, like some people here do, we deny that bad things can happen to those people who have some kind of privilege over us. We dismiss their being, their humanity, to put them in a small case and then say “you are this, you can’t experience anything else than what I say you can”.
And this, for me, is not social justice.
It’s just trying to gain power over others to feel better about oneself.
if you mention star trek in front of me what happens next is your fault not mine
I need this as a disclaimer. Just to hand out to people.
Look at the details! The dog bowl says ‘Loki’, and the license plate is “ASG4RD” or Asgard.
It’s cut off in the gif, but the mom’s coffee cup has a Stark label on it.
I still declare that the best part of this is that she’s a little girl cosplaying Thor. :3
I agree with the headcanon that Thor was just casually flying past at the time and saw this little girl and thought, “This young maiden wishes to emulate her hero. I SHALL ASSIST HER!” and then makes lighting shoot out of her hammer so that the car explodes and flies off with the biggest grin on his face.
if you found a piece of paper and the only thing written on it was ‘Basil leaves’ you wouldn’t be able to tell if it was a shopping list or a tiny story
