If someone is explaining to you how their mental disability/specific experiences affect their daily life, it is NOT HELPFUL OR CONSIDERATE to say “yeah but I think that’s true for lots of people”


or “yeah but everyone feels like that sometimes” because who fucking cares how neurotypical people feel sometimes?? The point I was making is that I feel like this all the time and I’m not gonna stand here and listen to you disregard my specific conditions/experiences as nothing more than an everyday, common annoyance. 

The idea that intelligence is linked to English pronunciation is a legacy from colonial thinking.

"I’m glad that Shonda Rhimes saw me and said “Why not?” That’s what makes her a visionary. That’s what makes her iconic. I think that beauty is subjective. I’ve heard that statement [less classically beautiful] my entire life. Being a dark-skinned black woman, you heard it from the womb. And “classically not beautiful” is a fancy term for saying ugly. And denouncing you. And erasing you. Now … it worked when I was younger. It no longer works for me now. It’s about teaching a culture how to treat you. Because at the end of the day, you define you."

Latinx means someone who is descended from Latin America. There are dark-skinned, non-white passing people that are Latinx. There are light-skinned, non-white passing people that are Latinx who are more “accepted” because of colorism. There a light-skinned, white passing people that are Latinx and are POC who experience conditional white passing privilege. There are white people that are Latinx that experience xenophobia but no racism. There is a difference. Learn it.
