I hate cubism. but I appreciate it’s ingenuity.
I’m in Panama right now. Like, the country.
I’ve never left the United States, let alone the midwest. So this is all really new to me.
I’d like to say that I’m saddened and shocked by how racist and classist my mindset is, and I didn’t even know it. I like to think I’m a good, decent person, but my white middle class upbringing has done a number on me.
So, I’m trying. I want to unwind this colonial thought process and be rid of it.
i’m white and it’s fucking hilarious when other white people get SO OFFENDED when poc make sweeping statements about us
friend, i have to make a daily, active effort to rid myself of racist attitudes i /didn’t even know i had/ so what makes you think YOU’RE some spotless paragon of equality
I hate that the only coping option I have right now is to ignore it.
My therapist, who’s not even really a therapist, is a little flakey so we haven’t been meeting regularly. She’s only two or three years older than me. A volunteer at the survivor’s center. She’s getting her required hours in for school. I get it, she’s got more important things to do. I understand.
But now I’m stuck. I get upset. I stay upset because I know the problem will not go away. All I can do is cry and hope something distracts me enough so I don’t think about it for a while.
Oh, thank you. Seriously. I appreciate you taking the time to say that. My blog becomes the dumping place for all my dreams and woes, and it means a lot to me that someone actually sees some beauty in that. So, thanks very much. <3 <3
No but how hard is it to cast actual disabled people as disabled characters? Disabled actors are out there, and considering how the abled supremacist media likes to pretend we don’t exist, the very few disabled roles should go to you know…disabled actors. Not abled actors thirsty for awards and recognition, or abled actors who have a bankable name or recognizable face.
