it is really really hard not to be angry at allies sometimes, just for not being trapped in the same situation, even though it’s not usually their fault and they usually mean well.
i just partially read a really nice thoughtful article by a woman in a secure economic position about the housing crisis and I couldn’t finish it because her distance (security) was too too clear.
if anyone was wondering it’s totally legit to be mad at allies/mad at straights for bein str9/mad at me for being white/mad in general. to ask people not to be is kind of like not all men-ing. the anger will come and go but it comes from a legit place imo. hopefully I can get over being mad at this lady for having more economic access and finish the article some day but when something is trapping and crushing you how can you not be frustrated and angry and jealous of the people who can breathe?
