Ugh. No friendship is ever equal when you think the other party is somehow less than you, and you’re trying to teach her a lesson by being her friend.

Wander on with Purpose: Straight Ally

wanderonwithpurpose:

I don’t understand why some of the gay community has a problem with straight allies. No, we don’t UNDERSTAND what you go through, but we see it and think it’s wrong and unjust. Why hate on someone in your corner who’s fighting with you? Do I think straight allies deserve their own symbol and to be…

First off, it’s not the gay community. That’s not inclusive of all queer people and it contributes to large scale erasure. And mistakes like those are part of the problem. It’s straight people being clueless about the specifics that leads to them being hurtful or offensive and allies are not exempt from that. in fact, in my experience, self proclaimed “allies” have been the worst towards me and other queer people. Allies like the ones you described are not bad, but they are definitely rare to come across. Additionally, many allies feel like it is their right to be a part of lgbtq spaces when they were designed to give queer people a break from a heteronormative society. Straight solidarity is awesome, but too often allies take it upon themselves to put their themselves at the forefront of a fight that they are merely cheering on. That is the problem with allies. Essentially Thayer they are not real allies. Actual supporters who are kind and well informed? Bring em on. Sadly, self proclaimed alliess are rarely that.

as a white person i apologize

As a black person, I say that you don’t need to apologize.

You should not be held accountable for what your ancestors did. They did bad things to people, but you didn’t. You also shouldn’t feel as though you aren’t allowed to have problems. Just because society leans toward favouring white people, doesn’t mean your life is perfect and stress free.

You don’t need to feel bad for being born the race you are. No one should.

Holy shit is this a post that outlines this whole concept without being dismissive of current problems because oh my god THANK.

30 down, 608 to go. Today. And I’ve been working for an hour.
