Do you ever imagine yourself in your favorite show and make up your own character and the connection you have with your favorite character and what they would say and do. I don't know might just be me...

I am done choosing between my womanhood and my blackness. 

Stop giving me fictional white female characters and telling me “these are the fictional women to admire, the ones that break the mold, the feminist icons, the representation you’ve been longing for.” 

Stop asking me to squint to see myself represented on screen. Stop telling me to “wait my turn”, to support shows with white female leads as though this was a rare occurrence, as though there haven’t been thousands of them through the years. As though white women haven’t been held as the pinnacle of progress and feminism on TV since Lucille Ball.

Stop telling me that a white woman playing a spy, is innovative and feminist when you’ve had Wonder Woman, Charlie’s Angels, Scarecrow & Mrs. King and Alias before Agent Carter.

Stop telling me that seeing Jessica Jones, a white female character with PTSD, on screen is a long time coming, a revolutionary feminist act, when Joss Carter, Abbie Mills, Olivia Pope, Sasha Williams and Michonne aren’t afforded the same treatment regarding theirs from writers, media and fandom alike.

Stop telling me that “romance is not part of the show” when said show is built on the loss of the White Male Lead’s love interest. Stop labeling black female characters as one half of a “brotp”, as the supportive friend, a mammy that does everything but wipe the white man’s ass or tuck him into bed, only to prop up the Random White Woman In The Background as the obvious choice for a new, better suited love interest.

Stop giving me Trojan Horses, those black female characters I’ve longed for, the ones I finally can see myself in, the ones that you’re praised for creating and writing, the ones you make money off of only to kill them later, once they’ve served their purpose.

We are not your first step towards success, we aren’t a tool to be used to avoid criticism, or appease higher ups afraid of losing money because of the lack of diversity and representation in their shows.

We are not either women or black, we are both and we deserve to be spies, the fated love interest, the damsel in distress, the selfish one, the vulnerable one, the pinnacle of feminism and progress, the one who’s turn has come, the one who was a long time coming.

Stop giving me a drop of water and calling it the sea.

Ghosts Can't Play Exy Pt.3

Wow this is over 1,500 words so Ima put most of it under a cut my lord. Shout out to @persistentplutonium for helping me with this and @andrewsneil and everyone else who liked this. Again, tw for minor gore, violence, and suicide and overdose mentions (still not too much tho). 

 Pt. 1 Pt.2 Pt.4 Pt.5 

  •  Neil knew Andrew was a problem from the beginning 
  •  But to push him off of the roof??? 
  • He could’ve been alive 
  • He could’ve been one of the foxes 
  • He says as much to the medicated Minyard 
    •  “But you weren’t.”
    •  “Fuck you.” 
  • Neil is close to pushing Andrew off of the roof 
  • This kiddo is insane, what if he’d suspected Matt was a ghost and tried this 
  • He’s even more of a threat now
  • But Andrew wouldn’t have done it if he wasn’t sure 
  • It takes the rest of the semester for Neil to see that
  • Andrew doesn’t tell him, he doesn’t feel he needs to justify himself to anyone 
  •  But Neil studies Andrew much closer now 
  • He sees how Andrew analyzes everything 
  •  How he investigates things that are interesting and remembers everything about them 
  • How he and Renee deal in realistic hypotheticals where Andrew debunks certain possibilities only to be hit with another 
  • Andrew isn’t stupid enough to call someone a ghost unless he felt it was the truth
