If you love Supergirl check out @plastic-pipes ‘s art, it waters my crops and clears my skin, this piece especially, I keep staring at it, and it’s the one who made me want to draw some supergirl in the first place, thank you for blessing us with it <3
I pay homage to my mother and father…their ancestors…who I stand in the backs of…who prayed furvently that their seed…me…would be born free without a cotton sack around my waist…with my chosen husband and children in one home…literate in the White man’s world.
No sir they don’t own me…they ARE me and I am them.
it’s weird how sometimes being in very queer spaces can actually make me uncomfortable.
it’s this bizarre feeling like I’m somehow…not queer enough, or performing queerness wrong - like if I’m not immediately and aggressively presenting my queerness then this space somehow doesn’t belong to me.
and this is me, a person with a bona fide girlfriend. and yet there’s still this nagging feeling that says this isn’t your place, you fake-ass queer.
I just realised that around the time my cousins finish with their getting married and having babies phase my Muslim friends will start getting married and having babies and when they finish up that phase my white friends will start getting married and having babies so I guess I’m going to be trapped in a fifteen year long never ending cycle of attending bridal showers, weddings and baby showers
on another note, the other day I came across some kid’s blog and they were saying how they didn’t care what age you were–they had a close online friend who was 10 years older than them!– but also they didn’t trust adults and only people “mentally 22 or under” should follow them
I love it, I love everything so much and I can’t believe I’m leaving it all. But I am so thankful for every smile, laugh, tear, goofy moment, and every sad moment I’ve gotten to share with these amazing people.
You know, I could go through and tell you what each of these pictures means to me, how these people have effected me, but there’s too much too say in so little time.
So for now, life is amazing, and I am so absolutely in love with everything. Here’s to beautiful beginnings ❤
