what im here for: little girls being allowed to cut their hair short and wear comfortable clothes so they can roll around and play. little girls never being asked about their theoretical “boyfriends” and not having the idea of having a boyfriend thrust on them. little girls having crushes on their best friend whos a girl and being able to be open about it. little girls being allowed to be themselves and be comfortable and be little kids. and this applies for trans girlhoods as well as cis girlhoods

[in response to a long, very polite email I sent to an online clothing retailer, about how I’m sure they weren’t doing it on purpose but to please stop using the word g***y in descriptions, including a link to a long post by an actual Romani person about how hurtful it is even when done with good intentions]
“Thank you for taking the time to email us. This has been addressed in the past with [site] and more than one poll was taken on our Facebook page. We are not using the term in a derogatory manner and to date, have not received any complaints from Romani people.
We appreciate your feedback.”
whitespeak for: “Don’t worry, we said that we aren’t using it in a derogatory manner, which means it’s not a slur. Besides, all the (probably white) people who follow us on Facebook say they aren’t offended by it, which must mean that it’s ok!… The person in the article doesn’t count.
"i don't know why you're complaining since things could be a lot worse"
Whitespeak for: “After all, we could be blatantly killing and raping (insert race here) and on a much larger scale too. Now we’re nice enough to only do it occasionally on the dl, and we even deign to act concerned.”
