no margin

To the boys who get called girls,
to the girls who get called boys,
and those who live outside these words.
To those called names,
and those searching for names of their own.
To those who live on the edges,
and in the spaces in between.
I wish you every light in the sky.

Hating or mistreating someone because of a trait that they did not choose and cannot change is the very essence of bigotry.  It doesn’t matter what that trait is or how strongly you feel about it.  You can oppose someone for awful actions or beliefs; that’s not only fine, it’s to be expected.  But if you hate or mistreat someone because they possess an immutable trait that you find objectionable - not because of their beliefs or actions, but just for having that trait - then you are a bigot.  There’s really no debate here.  It’s as simple as that.

Let Jewish people have “goyim.” Let gays and lesbians have the “heteros/straights.” Let black people complain about “crackers.” Let Latinos have the “gringos.” Let PoC have white people jokes. Let women complain about men.

Let marginalized people express distance from their oppressors. Let the marginalized turn their oppressors into the Other. Let marginalized people exist in a way that inconveniences and irritates their oppressors, because the oppressors have been doing worse for years.

When you're Black and gay you aren't used to happy endings.

Barry Jenkins took the story of the marginalized and presented it to the masses with care and craftsmanship.

The Academy saw a film about a poor, blue-Black gay man that wasn’t survivor porn or a cautionary tale and said, yes. This is the pinnacle of art.

In 2017 the world seems so dark. And it seems that the stars are showing now. And I’m bathing in it. And dancing in it. And crying in it. I’ve been seen and I’m crying in the Moonlight.

This is everything.

so this is basically what i think about the school systems policies on bullying… when i was in like middle school there was this girl who was mentally ill and poor, and she was relentlessly bullied by pretty much all the kids in my school and one day she sat at the only spot open at a lunch table to eat and every kid at the table got up and left, and so like I yelled at them for being fucking assholes because … it was.. obviously fucked up?

and you know what the teacher who saw this did… they rewarded me for doing the literal bare minimum. I got like some voucher for food you could buy at the school instead of getting regular school lunch. 

they didn’t reprimand the students who were being fucking assholes and they literally never asked the girl if she was okay or talked to her about it or tried to stop the bullying themselves, as they stood there the entire time this happened.

They rewarded me … who had absolutely nothing to lose, and was not harmed by any of the actions.

From what I’ve seen in school the teachers literally don’t care about the victims of bullying, they simply want to act like they do lmao. In my experience everything they do to stop bullying is performative, nothing more.

I’d even go as far as to say some teachers actively engage in, and encourage, bullying. Lets be honest, it’s been said before, people are bullied typically because they’re members of marginalized groups, and the fastest way for a teacher to become liked by the majority of their students is to pick on the kids they already know the other students hate.

Teachers absolutely have something to lose when defending marginalized children, and they’d rather appeal to those students who aren’t marginalized because it makes their job easier when the majority of their students like and respect them.
