By popular demand, Many Faces of Me is getting a sequel. The outline is complete and chapter one is in progress. This time, DID!Link will be visiting his family in North Carolina and coming face to face with a lot of hard truths. I’m having trouble settling on a title, though, so I’ve decided to open it up for a vote. Please comment with your favorite :)
I am fucking begging y'all to not call the dozens of LGBT Latinxs that died one year ago, or any deceased victims of homophobia and transphobia, “q*eer”. It’s so damn disrespectful, and so heartbreaking that y'all have no regard for this word and its violent history. We have no idea who among those people had reclaimed the slur, you have no idea who had vehemently rejected it. Don’t use this slur on people without their consent, especially when they’re not fucking alive to give it. Please. Stop.
“No mourners, no funerals. Another way of saying good luck. But it was something more. A dark wink to the fact that there would be no expensive burials for people like them, no marble markers to remember their names, no wreaths of myrtle and rose.”
