If you want to watch Sense8 go ahead but you DO NOT get to use intersectionality as a white/non black person to shame black people for not watching it because of Lana Wachowski racism, misogynoir & trans-misogynoir, & anti-black transphobia. The fact that you care so much about your representation to not care that this racist piece of shit profits from it, further oppressing black people, is in itself anti-intersectionality. Intersectionality was coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw. A black woman and don’t fucking forget it. Stop using her term to hide your anti-blackness.

Dear Tumblr:

You can appreciate an artists’ work, even if you don’t agree with their political views.

You can enjoy an entertainer’s content, even if you don’t agree with their political views.

You can enjoy an actor’s talent, even if you don’t agree with their political views.

You can enjoy a musical artist’s music, even if you don’t agree with their political views.

You can respect your elders/authorities, even if you don’t agree with their political views.

Last but not least, you can still be friends with someone, even if you don’t agree with their political views.

This is so so important and beautiful. And important. And beautiful.
