we are a wonderful array of people

there is no one way to be mixed race

i want us to represented as the hero, the sidekick, not as the eye candy

Just to be clear:

  • November 20th is Trans Day of Remembrance.
  • March 31st is (International) Trans Day of Visibility.
  • Both are very important dates.
  • TDoR was founded in 1998 to remember the murder of Rita Hester (and the fact that we know about her death is due to the diligent work of her community, that is, Black trans women: discussion here), and thus memorialize trans people who have fallen victim to attacks and raise awareness of continuing violence.
  • TDoV was founded much later, in 2009, by Rachel Crandall as a celebration of trans people, specifically citing that the sole holiday for trans people at the time was TDoR, a more somber day.
  • Both serve to educate and raise awareness, but come from different historical contexts.
To Mixed People
  • To mixed people who only look like one of their races
  • To mixed people who look ‘ambiguous’ 'exotic’ 'unique’ and get both fetishized and treated badly for it
  • To mixed people whose identities are 'too confusing’
  • To mixed people whose identities get ignored
  • To mixed people whose identities are questioned
  • To mixed people who are told 'they aren’t really ___’
  • To mixed people who have mixed hair and mixed skin and can’t find cosmetic care products for themselves
  • To mixed people who are victims of multiple types of racism 
  • To mixed people who can’t fit in with the parts of their family
  • To mixed people who only have connections to one of their races
  • To mixed people who are too ’___’ or not ’___’ enough
  • To mixed people who aren’t white, but can pass for white.
  • To white mixed people who are white passing, and have to decide between having their identity erased or having to deal with more racism
  • To white mixed people who aren’t white passing, and don’t get the choice.
  • To white mixed people who aren’t white passing, but their siblings are
  • To mixed people who have to deal with prejudice from their own family, white or not. (anti-blackness, fetishism, colorism)
  • To transracial adopted mixed people who have never known any of their family
  • To mixed people who have to figure out their identities by themselves

To mixed people who have to deal with so much shit. You are strong, you are beautiful, and you are valid.

For mixed people everywhere, stand in solidarity with each other. While we have similar experiences, not everyone has the same experience, or relationship with their race. Be aware of whatever privileges you have. Listen to others and always help one another.

Dear White Friends,

Please stop calling me ‘fluffy’ or groping my hair. Yeah, i get it, it’s curly, but you’ve gotta get permission before randomly petting me like a dog. 

Love, 

Your Mixed Friend

If you’re mixed and you don’t know what you’re mixed with, you are valid.

If you always knew you were mixed but found out late in life what your exact heritage is and decided to reconnect with your ancestry, you are valid.

If you don’t feel like you have a claim over your nonwhite heritage due to diaspora/secretism/being white passing but still don’t feel comfortable labeling yourself as “white” and prefer to call yourself mixed, you are valid.

If you are not as visibly brown as the rest of your family, you are valid.

You are valid and being proud of your heritage is not bad.

After having drawn no proper fma art for almost a year, I must say I missed you guys. Out of all the fandoms I’m part of, the fma people seem the most talkative and everyone knows each other, which makes it feel like a big family. Thanks for being a bunch of kind nerds!!

This is by the way sort of a redraw (not really) of that outfit swap drawing I made a long time ago…(of course here they are preparing for battle and not something else, as you can tell from the Promised-Day-outfit Mustang is wearing).


So…I guess I’m back in royai hell??
