So sick of being attacked & lambasted & given “advice” for things effected by my own sicknesses that I’m actually trying to deal with & get on top of, by sick people who aren’t even trying to get better.
“Let me trigger this person bc their getting better is triggering me. Let me throw in a dose of passive aggressive *guilting* - how bout a blame-ridden repression of the confrontation too? Okay great, bye!”
“Much like the often ignored limitations within the Carefree Black Girl Movement, there are major shortcomings when it comes to the representation and visibility of magical Black girls and femmes.
What about the bisexual trap queens, the queer hood femmes, or the sexually fluid thotties?
Hoodness, poorness, fatness, and nigga-ness are not represented in our mainstream #BlackGirlMagic movements. This is expanded through other forms of oppression as well, such as colorism, respectability politics, beauty politics, sizism, ability, and transphobia. It’s time we lift the limitation around our ideas of Black girl representation and Black girl magic in our aims to challenge the stigmas of being a Black woman or femme. In claiming our identity as a source of confidence and empowerment, we have to recognize that what/who we praise as radical and ground-breaking is politicized too. We have to understand that light skin, white gaze palatability, and thinness are privileges in representation. We can praise Amandla for her #BlackGirlMagic and still question where the rest of the Black femme representation is at.”
