“Are you living in response to your traumas or your healing?”
If white American feminist theory need not deal with the differences between us, and the resulting difference in our oppressions, then how do you deal with the fact that the women who clean your houses and tend your children while you attend conferences on feminist theory are, for the most part, poor women and women of Color?

oma visited my dream. she was cleaning the kitchen. i walked in, knew she was a ghost, knew that she was still dead. the last time she visited me was during surgery, she was wandering in a tunnel with me, under from anesthesia, we sat together, she wasn’t old or young, she just was. in last night’s dream she was old, i wasn’t afraid of her as a ghost, as i am afraid of all the other ghosts i’ve grown up with, i was excited to see her, i threw my arms around her, told her i’d been waiting for her.

Laverne Cox red carpet interview @ GLAAD Media Awards.
I really appreciate that Laverne uses every moment she’s near a microphone, to expose issues and struggles of people who don’t get to speak up. Even in this interview when she was asked questions mostly about herself, she focused on bringing awareness to the way society still acts towards trans women, and in this case specifically, trans women of color.

my neighbor plays very beautiful piano and his friend sings but her voice is not very beautiful
it’s a long day working with cis people
