women of color victims

Look biracial/light skinned Black women, if a nigga is tryin hit by using lines like, “you got that good hair.” “I just love that winter color, how light you are.” “I love mixed women” “I like your straight hair better.” “You’re so fine for a Black woman.”


Get. The. Fuck. Out. Now.

Those niggas don’t love Black women and those aren’t compliments.

Those. Aren’t. Compliments.

Get you a nigga who loves how dark you get in the summer. Get you a nigga that plays with your braids and loves them 4c curls. Get you a real man and support our dark skinned women because if us light skinned/biracial women aren’t acting in solidarity with our dark skinned sistas than we are just helping perpetuate the problem by throwing it back at every yt “who wants the experience” or backwards ass nigga that glances our way. Don’t be ignorant to our privilege or to how colorism affects dark skinned men and women.

Kevin, “Trans with Privilege”.

“I am a doctoral fellow here at UNT, teaching in the art education program. I’m a 45-year-old man of trans experience. I used to be the director of Denton Transendence, which is a support group for trans people, family, friends, and allies, so it takes a hollistic approach to trans support.”

Could you tell me about your experience?

“Well, my book title is Trans with Privilege, and it’s one of those things I was thinking about the other day, that there’s this sort of narrative that goes around about being trans as if it’s this homogeneous experience without taking into consideration intersectionality and how privilege can happen within the trans community. I have to take into account the great privilege I have now walking through life as a heterosexual white man who’s highly educated, as opposed to friends I have who transitioned in different ways to where it actually deprivileges them. One of the young adults in my family is a trans woman, and so I have to think about even within my own family, both of our positions have shifted, with me being read as male, and my niece going from male to female. With similar family, neither of us are treated well, but even within that, they’ll be more cautious about how they disrespect me, as opposed to how they disrespect her.

Lately I’ve been reminded of this story where in 1993 my motorcycle broke down on the highway off I-35 & Rosedale in Fort Worth in the middle of the night. I had to try and find a payphone to call some friends to help me out. Walking around at that time & place, alone in the dark, as a fairly small person, being read as female, it wasn’t the safest place. When I found a payphone, I realized I had no money. I saw person coming from around the corner of an abandoned building. It was this very tall women in tall heels and a green dress, in the middle of the night, on Rosedale. Sure enough it was a sex worker, but also a trans woman of color. At the time I thought ‘I don’t want this person near me.’ I had a lot of assumptions. They asked me if I needed help, and even though I insisted I didn’t, she knew I was scared, and she even knew I was scared of her. She pulled some money out of her purse, and I was able to call my friends. I told her I was fine and she could leave, but she knew things about the area I didn’t, and wanted to make sure I was safe while I waited. When my friends pull up, I went to talk to them, and when I turn around, she was already gone. I think she was worried, knowing if I’m afraid of her, who knows what my friends are like, and there’s more of us and there’s just her. It’s interesting to think when we look at trans people, I have what’s called 'passing privilege’. Most people have no idea that I’m trans without me telling them. There are so many people who may or may not have passing privilege, which can make things dangerous, especially when sex workers are already targets for violence anyway, and the highest rates of violence are against trans women of color. We often hear about trans people as victims, and here was this woman who stepped up. Didn’t know me and made sure that I was safe.”

What were some changes in privilege you noticed before & after your transition?

“Oh wow, let’s see! I’ve been a professor for several years, and when I started to transition, I did a little experiment. I was getting emails that were really hostile over little things, and they always start with Ms, Mrs, my first name, or just Hey. They would be really demanding emails, saying 'You need to do this…’. Whatever I wrote back, no matter how professionally written, I would be perceived as a bitch. I changed my name on Blackboard, and started replying to emails as Mr. Jenkins. After about a week, even within the same semester and same group of students, about 80% of the emails changed completely in tone, saying 'Mr. Jenkins, if you get a chance…’

On the other hand, around the same time, I took a night class at TWU. I was walking along the sidewalk after class, a million things going through my head, not thinking of my surroundings, except noticing a girl walking a bit in front of me. I was only 8 months into my transition, and after 42 years of thinking I need to bundle up next to somebody at night for safety, I wasn’t thinking about how there was no one around us and I’m walking in pace right behind her. I notice her keep looking around. I thought 'I wonder why she keeps looking over her shoulder like that?’ and it suddenly hit me 'Oh my god, it’s me! I’m like the creepy guy walking too close!’ So I stopped to tie my shoes and let her go on. Those are things I had to stop being aware of. Not that I would do anything, but that’s the perception, that I could be that guy who might do something.”

Brie Larson: critically acclaimed actress for her work in both “Short Term 12” and “Room”, movies that both tackle the issue of sexual abuse, educated herself heavily for the role and has been very vocal and the issue, never talks over victims, lets women of color (including a trans woman) use her Instagram to share their stories, hugged all the sexual assault survivors exiting the stage after Lady Gaga’s performance in the Oscars…

Golden Globe Awards people: ….are you guys…?! ..like… thinking what I’m thinking?!..!.?.

*makes Brie Larson hand award to sexual harasser and abuser, Casey Affleck*

Every few weeks since the nightmare of Trump started have been weeks like this, weeks where the hits just keep coming and you just can barely keep but with all the horror more for my own sanity than anything I just want to expel all the shit that has happen in the last week(ish)

1. Trump goes to war with the FNL and most of professional sports. I don’t follow sports, they hold no interest for me, but I understand and respect that the FNL is like a cultural powerhouse in America. So the idea that a President would attack them is… crazy right, like a thing I never imagined would happen, but it did. Trump and Steve Mnuchin making creepy deeply racist statements that basically the rich white people who own FNL teams should have the right to control what they’re overwhelmingly black players have to say. General creepy neo-fascist flag worship porn, and in the mix the whole BLM message of the kneel got lost in some FNL unity BS as owners tried to co-op it

2. While Trump was busy being racist against black football (and Basketball) players, he was ignoring an island of (AMERICAN) hispanics. It wasn’t till he got called out on it that Trump figured out where Puerto Rico, and stopped there. He got into a Twitter battle with San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz who has been working her ass off and has been a total hero through this whole thing. But Trump hates women, and people of color and women of color set him off so victim blaming, implying that we’re not really gonna rebuild Puerto Rico, switching between claiming everything is great and blaming any problems on Puerto Rico (or the fact it’s an island) meanwhile the response is still lagging behind what team Obama did in Haiti in 2010, and seems to only be doing what outside politicians (John McCain, Hillary Clinton) tweet at them days too late

3. Roy fucking Moore happened, Roy Moore is a crazy person totally unqualified for public life that wants to make being gay illegal and put America under biblical law, he’s been impeached from side wide office in Alabama twice now (both times for trying to defy the US Supreme Court) and this asshole won the Senate Primary in Alabama. Alabama being Alabama Moore is the odds on favorite to become a US Senator 

4. Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Prince spent over 400,000 dollars for domestic flights on private jets, including a $25,000 flight from DC to Philadelphia….. which is 2 hours away by car from DC…. Prince also used military transport for his overseas travel. Which is something that is reserved as a rule for people who need 24/7 secure communications with the President, needless to say the HHS Secretary isn’t one of those people. So Price’s transport in 8 months was close to a million dollars. At the same time Prince has been busily telling everyone how we need DEEP cuts to medicaid because there just isn’t enough money. All this is bad enough, but it seems MANY people on team Trump have been using private jets on government dime. Oh also EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt spent 25,000 dollars to build himself a private sound proof room that no one knows what he’ll use that for since the EPA already had a secure room for reading classified information? oh also he has a $800,000 a year around the clock security detail like the President, which no one else in the cabinet has oh also he likes private jets too. 

5. Catalonia tried to have a referendum on independence. Spanish courts ruled this illegal but that doesn’t really explain why the Spanish government unleashed federal police into the streets of Catalonia. Police broke down the doors of polling stations, dragged people out by their hair, stole ballot boxes, charged crowds of voters swinging batons and firing rubber bullets. By the end of the day over 800 people had been injured by police. Catalonian President Carles Puigdemont said that Catalonia had “won the right to statehood” meanwhile the Spanish government under Mariano Rajoy have gone full 1984 and declared no vote happened at all, and also that their reaction was totally fair, while also refusing to negotiate with the Catalonian government, I don’t know what happens next but it looks scary and set for violence in the coming week.

6. Las Vegas shooting, the new “deadliest shooting in American history” coming 16 months after the last deadliest shooting. as of right now it’s 59 dead and many more hurt, a man with dozens of guns and hundreds of rounds of ammo. The story feels like one we’ve heard before. It’s tiring to be locked into an never ending cycle of mass shooter gun violence, where the reaction to even talking about guns is to be violently shut down by people, I have no doubt the very fact I listed this will get this post hate reblogged at some point. Trump’s statement on the shooting said nothing about guns, shocker. I don’t think it’s really controversial to say that countries with fewer guns have fewer gun deaths, you get fewer guns through gun control, logical. There’s a river of blood from guns in America, but we don’t seem to give a fuck. That’s just depressing, it’s depressing to see stuff like this and know that it’ll happen again because we don’t care to stop it.

My advice to every young woman of color out there: do not let white women victimize themselves. Do not let them paint you as the aggressor. Do not let them manipulate or emotionally blackmail you. Do not give in to the carefully constructed facade of naiveté that veils the violence of white femininity. Stay steadfast against their tactics and stick to your ideals, and don’t give them an opportunity to weaponize their femininity against you. 

Hello liberal feminists.

Believing that men of color who are sexist are above criticism is not anti-racist. It is literally the opposite because you’re ignoring their most frequent victims (women of color) and acting like they’re too barbaric to even stand criticism. 

Plus if you cannot see the line between racism and criticism of sexism, homophobia, racism, etc. then you should probably just stay out of conversations you aren’t nuanced enough to have.

I will criticize racism in any space I find it too, but acknowledging that patriarchy is global and that any man can hurt any woman is not racist. Men in Iraq can be and often are extremely sexist. And we Iraqis are often racist, homophobic, and ableist. We need to talk about it.

yo feminism is about equal rights stop thinking it's about taking whatever you want just because you've seen a few girls on this site victimize themselves some of them like colored women and women in 3rd world countries are fighting for equal rights hell some of them are even going to war for this shit, I just find it really saddening when people lump fake feminist and real ones together.

Yeah I agree. The middle East and similar places massively need feminism. The same feminism we would call first wave.

Feminism in the West though? Don’t need it. The feminists fighting for rights in the west, ludicrous.

Second Wachowski Sibling Comes Out as Transgender
The second Wachowski sibling of “The Matrix” trilogy has come out as transgender, with Andy Wachowski, now going by the name Lilly, making an announcement on Tuesday. Lilly’s sist…
By Alex Stedman

“Being transgender is not easy. We live in a majority-enforced gender binary world. This means when you’re transgender you have to face the hard reality of living the rest of your life in a world that is openly hostile to you.

I am one of the lucky ones. Having the support of my family and the means to afford doctors and therapists has given me the chance to actually survive this process. Transgender people without support, means and privilege do not have this luxury. And many do not survive. In 2015, the transgender murder rate hit an all-time high in this country. A horrifying disproportionate number of the victims were trans women of color. These are only the recorded homicides so, since trans people do not all fit in the tidy gender binary statistics of murder rates, it means the actual numbers are higher.

And though we have come a long way since Silence of the Lambs, we continue to be demonized and vilified in the media where attack ads portray us as potential predators to keep us from even using the goddamn bathroom. The so-called bathroom bills that are popping up all over this country do not keep children safe, they force trans people into using bathrooms where they can be beaten and or murdered. We are not predators, we are prey.

So yeah, I’m transgender.

And yeah, I’ve transitioned.

I’m out to my friends and family. Most people at work know too. Everyone is cool with it. Yes, thanks to my fabulous sister they’ve done it before, but also because they’re fantastic people. Without the love and support of my wife and friends and family I would not be where I am today.”

The Wachowski Brothers Are Now The Wachowski Sisters

Written by rychu79

Andy Wachowski, one half of the famous Wachowski siblings that rose to fame with the success of “The Matrix” trilogy, has transitioned from male to female and now goes by the name Lily.

Lily’s sister Lana transitioned from male to female in 2008 after the completion of the live action adaptation of “Speed Racer”.

Lily said she felt the need to tell her story on her own terms rather than being outed by other news outlets after an encounter with a reporter from the Daily Mail who’s history is not the best when it comes to transgender issues.

Read the full statement below.


“SEX CHANGE SHOCKER—WACHOWSKI BROTHERS NOW SISTERS!!!”

There’s the headline I’ve been waiting for this past year. Up until now with dread and/or eye rolling exasperation. The “news” has almost come out a couple of times. Each was preceded by an ominous email from my agent—reporters have been asking for statements regarding the “Andy Wachowski gender transition” story they were about to publish. In response to this threatened public outing against my will, I had a prepared a statement that was one part piss, one part vinegar and 12 parts gasoline.

It had a lot of politically relevant insights regarding the dangers of outing trans people, and the statistical horrors of transgender suicide and murder rates. Not to mention a slightly sarcastic wrap-up that “revealed” my father had injected praying mantis blood into his paternal ball-sac before conceiving each of his children to produce a brood of super women, hellbent on female domination. Okay, mega sarcastic.

But it didn’t happen. The editors of these publications didn’t print a story that was only salacious in substance and could possibly have a potentially fatal effect. And being the optimist that I am, I was happy to chalk it up to progress.

Then last night while getting ready to go out for dinner my doorbell rang. Standing on my front porch was a man I did not recognize.

“This might be a little awkward,” he said in an English accent.

I remember sighing.

Sometimes it’s really tough work to be an optimist.

He proceeded to explain he was a journalist from the Daily Mail, which was the largest news service in the UK and was most definitely not a tabloid. And that I really had to sit down with him tomorrow or the next day or next week so that I could have my picture taken and tell my story which was so inspirational! And that I really didn’t want to have someone from the National Enquirer following me around, did I? BTW—The Daily Mail is so definitely not a tabloid.

My sister Lana and I have largely avoided the press. I find talking about my art frustratingly tedious and talking about myself a wholly mortifying experience. I knew at some point I would have to come out publicly. You know, when you’re living as an out transgender person it’s … kind of difficult to hide. I just wanted—needed some time to get my head right, to feel comfortable.

But apparently I don’t get to decide this.

After he had given me his card, and I closed the door it began to dawn on me where I had heard of the Daily Mail. It was the “news” organization that had played a huge part in the national public outing of Lucy Meadows, an elementary school teacher and trans woman in the UK. An editorial in the “not-a-tabloid” demonized her as a damaging influence on the children’s delicate innocence and summarized “he’s not only trapped in the wrong body, he’s in the wrong job.” The reason I knew about her wasn’t because she was transgender it was because three months after the Daily Mail article came out, Lucy committed suicide.

And now here they were, at my front door, almost as if to say—

“There’s another one! Let’s drag ’em out in the open so we can all have a look!”

Being transgender is not easy. We live in a majority-enforced gender binary world. This means when you’re transgender you have to face the hard reality of living the rest of your life in a world that is openly hostile to you.

I am one of the lucky ones. Having the support of my family and the means to afford doctors and therapists has given me the chance to actually survive this process. Transgender people without support, means and privilege do not have this luxury. And many do not survive. In 2015, the transgender murder rate hit an all-time high in this country. A horrifying disproportionate number of the victims were trans women of color. These are only the recorded homicides so, since trans people do not all fit in the tidy gender binary statistics of murder rates, it means the actual numbers are higher.

And though we have come a long way since Silence of the Lambs, we continue to be demonized and vilified in the media where attack ads portray us as potential predators to keep us from even using the goddamn bathroom. The so-called bathroom bills that are popping up all over this country do not keep children safe, they force trans people into using bathrooms where they can be beaten and or murdered. We are not predators, we are prey.

So yeah, I’m transgender.

And yeah, I’ve transitioned.

I’m out to my friends and family. Most people at work know too. Everyone is cool with it. Yes, thanks to my fabulous sister they’ve done it before, but also because they’re fantastic people. Without the love and support of my wife and friends and family I would not be where I am today.

But these words, “transgender” and “transitioned” are hard for me because they both have lost their complexity in their assimilation into the mainstream. There is a lack of nuance of time and space. To be transgender is something largely understood as existing within the dogmatic terminus of male or female. And to “transition” imparts a sense of immediacy, a before and after from one terminus to another. But the reality, my reality is that I’ve been transitioning and will continue to transition all of my life, through the infinite that exists between male and female as it does in the infinite between the binary of zero and one. We need to elevate the dialogue beyond the simplicity of binary. Binary is a false idol.

Now, gender theory and queer theory hurt my tiny brain. The combinations of words, like freeform jazz, clang disjointed and discordant in my ears. I long for understanding of queer and gender theory but it’s a struggle as is the struggle for understanding of my own identity. I have a quote in my office though by José Muñoz given to me by a good friend. I stare at it in contemplation sometimes trying to decipher its meaning but the last sentence resonates:

“Queerness is essentially about the rejection of a here and now and an insistence on potentiality for another world.”

So I will continue to be an optimist adding my shoulder to the Sisyphean struggle of progress and in my very being, be an example of the potentiality of another world.

Lilly Wachowski


It is an apt metaphor, woman of color as bridge. Always liminal. Permanently negotiating. A migrant between gender and race. That is what makes us different: we can never pick a side.

And here is another thing about bridges: they have to be strong. According to a recent report by the Women of Color Policy Network at NYU, Black and Latina women are disproportionately more likely to be poor, have trouble paying the bills, be worried about putting food on the table, and express concern about the accessibility of health insurance than their white counterparts, but they are among the least likely to benefit from the billions of dollars in stimulus funding being doled out to improve economic well-being in this country. However, I think it would be a mistake to view the women of color who face these challenges as passive “victims” of intersecting layers of oppression.

When I sit in church basements in the South Bronx, strategizing with a local community coalition, the vast majority of people I am talking with are women - women of color. The same is true of the immigrant rights organization I work with in Brooklyn. You cannot begin to comprehend the fight that is in the mothers I represent, who do daily battle with the health and education systems on behalf of their children. The foot soldiers of our modern-day civil rights movement are women of color, just as they were a generation ago, when women outnumbered men two-to-one in the local organizations feeding the Mississippi freedom struggle.

In a way, it is quite stunning that the group most disadvantaged within the socio-economic framework of American society would, historically and currently, be its most vital force for democracy.

YOU FUCKERS NEED TO SERIOUSLY STOP GANGING UP ON AND BULLYING PEOPLE FOR THEIR MISTAKES.

You do realize that a lot of people on this website are rather young and/or aren’t educated about the conduct and vocabulary we use online. People slip up, people are ignorant; it’s a problem. But when someone fucks up the default attitude of this website is to scream and yell and demonize the person. You throw around fancy words that you don’t fully understand. You call people rape apologists, scum, abuser, transphobic, racist, etc etc etc. And you base this off of one post the person made on their blog. 

Yes there are a many problematic issues and bloggers on this website. But bullying them off of the internet will not solve this problem. Oh yes and then you will say that it isn’t “bullying” to call out someone’s problematic behavior. Well it is when your actions invite people to judge a blogger based upon one action in which they know neither the context of the situation nor the person who committed the act. 

We should be educating our friends. Not sending them hateful messages demeaning them for their mistakes. Yes it’s easy to hate someone for the mistakes they have made. When people are insensitive to the the people affected by social issues such as the lgbtgia community, rape victims, people of color, women, and more, we as a tumblr community feel motivated to protect these people whom suffer so much daily in real life. But these well intended thoughts often turn into misguided social justice. When you send someone hate do you even know the person? Backstory does not excuse action but have you ever considered what the person went through to become the person they are? Perhaps the person was raised in a community where they were not exposed to racism and are unaware that they may be using slurs or derogatory language. That’s why we educate people. If you aggressively move to shame the person and force them off of the internet they will only see the experience as painful and hateful instead of positively learning from their mistakes and trying to change. In certain situations these people fall into depression and some try to commit suicide. But how would we even know? They’ve been bullied off of their blogs. People are so wrapped around their aggressive misguided social justice that they don’t realize the damage that they have caused. 

You want to stand up for social justice? That’s great! Go out in the real world and do something. Educate people patiently. Do that instead of staying on your computers and throwing hate at someone you don’t even know for a situation you don’t fully understand. Do not justify your actions by saying you are doing thing by spreading awareness of an abuser and that they deserve the hate they get. You are bullying under the facade of social justice. 

Also, if you feel that this has nothing to do with you, and that you aren’t the ones starting posts calling out people or sending anon hate, you’re wrong. Every ‘like’ you give, every 'reblog’ you make is another incentive to the person who enjoys this type of internet aggression. Put yourself in someone else’s shoes. We’ve all been ignorant at some point in our lives and many of us still are. People please be kind to one another. Stop it with the 'us’ and 'them’. If we really want to make a difference in this community then we have to do it together. 

tl:dr- stop being fucking assholes and jumping onto the bandwagon of misguided social justice. If you want to make people change you educate them not bully them off the internet.

Trans Latina woman killed in San Francisco

Another name. Another life. 

Taja Gabrielle DeJesus, a 33-year-old Latina trans woman, was fatally stabbed in San Francisco last weekend. She worked for TRANS: THRIVE, a drop-in center for trans people, according to her Facebook. 

“Four transgender women of color have been killed in less than a month and this is nothing short of an outrage, a national tragedy, and an epidemic,” Chai Jindasurat, who coordinates programming with the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs (NCAVP), told BuzzFeed News in a statement.

Lamia Beard, who died Jan 17 in Virginia, and Ty Unerwood, who died Jan. 24 in Texas, were the victims of shootings. The most recent victim, Yazmin Payne, was was killed Jan. 31 in Los Angeles. In addition to those killings, some also have questioned the circumstances of a recent killing in Kentucky.

Nationally, transgender women of color were the victims of 67% of all hate-motivated homicides against LGBT people in 2013, according to a report on hate violence last May by NCAVP.

We need to wake the hell up. 

when mainstream feminism prioritizes women having power and strength they really mean white women (or lighter women in some cases)

when brown women have power and strength and the means to hurt everyone who has oppressed them, being female isn’t gonna be enough to keep white/light/rich/ women from catching those hands

so in an attempt to keep that from happening, the mainstream is flooded with depictions of powerful and violent white women while women of color are portrayed as either villains, victims, or sidekicks to white women. those content creators end up getting points for ~female empowerment~ while actively or passively keeping white supremacy alive

Trans woman murdered in Philadelphia
London Chanel, 21, is the eighth transgender woman of color to be killed this year the United States.
By Dominic Holden

Yesterday in Philadelphia, a 21-year-old trans woman named London Chanel was stabbed to death – making her at least the eighth trans woman of color to be murdered in the United States this year. 

Initial media coverage about Chanel’s death misgendered her, but commenters were quick to point out the mistake and the mayor’s office released a statement affirming her correct name and pronouns. 

“Society is finally beginning to recognize that trans women of color are victimized and murdered at astounding rates,” Fitzpatrick said. “We just have far too many individuals who are dying too young at the hands of violence.”

The seven other confirmed homicides of transgender women of color in the U.S. this year include: A victim using the name Papi Edwards who was shot Jan. 9 in Kentucky; Kristina Gomez Reinwald, who was found in her home Feb. 15 in Miami-Dade County; Penny Proud, who was shot Feb 10. in New Orleans; Taja Gabrielle DeJesus, who was stabbed Feb. 1 in San Francisco; Yazmin Payne, who was stabbed Jan. 21 in Los Angeles; Ty Underwood, who was shot Jan. 24 in Texas; andLamia Beard, who died of gunshot wounds Jan. 17 in Virginia.

Rest in power. 

If you can’t read the screenshot it says ““You shouldn’t be worried about equality, women can vote!” Ah yes now I can choose which straight white man can oppress me what a time to be alive” I’m tired of seeing this stupid post on my dash every goddamn day. If you reblog it I’m judging the hell out of you. It has so many notes and I really can’t believe that many people are that fucking stupid.  If you truly believe that crap you really need to pull your head out of your ass. Having a victim complex isn’t going to get you anywhere in life. The wage gap has been debunked a million times so stop using that as an excuse to feel like a victim. It’s just embarrassing. This is coming from a “woc” also. And it’s sad I feel the need to say that because your opinion is apparently more valid if you’re not white (although people will still comment shit like “this is probably actually a straight while male lul.” “Women of color” don’t want your sympathy so stop treating us like helpless victims that need sjws to stand up for them. It’s fucking degrading and embarrassing! Alright rant over I think.
