my brother my sisters

i wanna make a post about colorism SO BAD, but i’m also a light skint nigga so sometimes i feel weird about it because it’s not my lane?

like, i acknowledge the privileges i have that darker skinned black women don’t have and know i’m in a “better” position in society – unfairly so – but i feel weird speaking for darker women?

idk it’s a weird place to be in.

pidge who lowkey really wants to go to prom but she doesn’t want to go alone so she decides just to get over it, except then lance, hunk, and keith find out and decide to all be her dates

they split the cost of her ticket and then help her shop for a dress and do her hair and makeup

pidge ends up having three different colored corsages, and not to mention the best prom pictures ever

the boys take turns dancing with her, spinning her around the room and tossing her in the air, and it’s the best night of her life

matt: [to pidge] take my glasses. i don’t need them anymore. the garrison fixed my eyes awhile ago!

pidge: if you don’t need them, then why have you been them?

matt: aesthetic.

[later, in space, when pidge is part of team voltron, right after a mission]

pidge: [takes off her helmet, not wearing any glasses] 

hunk: hey, pidge, why do you never wear glasses on missions?

pidge: oh, i don’t need them. my eyes are pretty good.

hunk: [confused] then…why do you wear them at all?

pidge: [smiling] aesthetic.

Kids and Transgender People

Grown adults act like “kids won’t understand” what being transgender is, like they have an fucking concept of gender yet. I’m an ftm male, but I don’t wear my binder around my house because you should always give yourself a day or two with the binder off(good binding self-care) and I have some pretty big chesticals (34DDD) so it’s hard NOT to fucking notice them. My little foster brother (8 fucking years old) said, “Well she can always help.” Then he stopped mid thought and said, “He, I mean he can always help.” If a fucking 8 year old can consciously correct themselves and think about how I FEEL, then why the fuck can’t you? Your kids will understand and sometimes they may not always get that person’s gender right, nor will they always call them the correct pronouns, but they can fucking learn and be sentient.

hey did I ever tell you guys about the time I graduated my animation program but they wouldn’t let me put Nightwing fan art into my throwaway so I dressed him in sweats and a crop top and named him Schmick Layson. did i ever tell you guys about that one
