DOMA got repealed. Yes, great. Now, let’s talk about how 70% of queerphobic murders involve people of color. Let’s talk about how trans women of color can’t even defend themselves on the street without ending up behind bars like CeCe McDonald.
Oh, and while we’re at it, let’s talk bout how voting rights for people of color in this country are not that important to defend according to the Supreme Court.
Right, because things are still exactly the same as they were 50 years ago and states that were affected by this ruling, like Alabama, still have no representation by people of color.

What if the cure for cancer was in the mind of someone who felt like they had no other choice, felt like they would never amount to anything, and committed suicide?
What if that person was poor, or was a POC, or was an immigrant, or had any other kind of identity that they were bullied, harassed, assaulted, and made to feel like a ‘less than’ and ‘Other’?
None of you seem to understand how scientific discoveries work.
My boyfriend and I have broken three beds. (Two air mattresses and a futon.) I’m not sure whether we should feel proud or ashamed.
