the madonna/macklemore effect: when a white straight person profitizes off of the struggles, creativity, and/or art forms of communities of color, other non-white communities, and queer and trans communities
We’re not people really. Our concerns are not America’s concerns. We are just here for entertainment. We’re a convenient treasure trove of limitless creativity to be pillaged, watered down, and re-purposed for White audiences and the people getting rich from bastardized stereotypes and simplified caricatures of everything we bring to the table have nothing to say when shit gets really real.
i do not have the money to get diagnosed for things. i was only diagnosed once as a little kid but now my family cant afford it and my family just tells me to get over it so literally anyone who tells me i cant self diagnose can fuck off. no one can really diagnose mental illnesses they base it off of screenings like professionals do that so taking online ones work pretty well
