what if tattoos just randomly appeared on our skin at key points in our lives and we had to figure out what they meant for ourselves

But you have to understand that when both my cousin and I came out as bisexual to our great-aunt, she told us we were too young to label ourselves.
You have to understand that both of my brothers are gay and came out to her before the ages of 15. She had absolutely no problem.
My great-aunt is a 69 year old lesbian.
You have to understand that not every aspect of biphobia has to do with homophobia.
I don’t say thank You enough.
I am grateful for all the beautiful things happening in my life right now.
Fresh wind… at the time I needed it most, to restore and refresh me.
Post racial Amerikkka
I’m so disgusted.
But its not about race you guys.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.
Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.
He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

This is sick
You must be white. Always going back to this assumption that someone/some group MUST have power over others even in an “ideal” world. Benevolent power holder(s) is an illusion made by those with power so that they can absolve themselves of guilt at the inherent inequality they benefit from.
They did say “if anyone.” They never said that there absolutely had to be someone in power. I’m sure I’ll get hate for this, but I’m just pointing out that people are mad about something that wasn’t said at all.
Really? Like you can’t read that the “if anyone” is clearly an after thought? That the presumption of someone in power is STILL FUCKING THERE if you have to ask that sort of question to begin with? And I wasn’t mad about anything, just pointing out shit about power dynamics and the tendency for white people to imagine ideal worlds that still have power imbalances, but funny that you thought I was mad in my reply. Talk about reading shit that wasn’t there.
You know what I like, and feel is so important? That he doesn’t say “Men thinks those are THEIR positions”. He says “We think those are OUR positions.”
As a male feminist, he still doesn’t exclude himself from the group of men.
