"Gladys Bentley (stage name, Bobbie Minton) was a Harlem Renaissance blues singer and cross dresser. She was one of the most well-known and financially successful black women in the United States in the 1920s and 1930s. She was a pioneer in pushing the envelope of gender, sexuality, class, and race with parody and exaggeration, personally and professionally." - See more at: http://www.blackpast.org/aah/bentley-gladys-1907-1960#sthash.6ML7nVl4.dpuf

bisexual women, don’t call yourselves gay

pansexual women, don’t call yourselves gay

non-lesbian women, if you still like dick

if you are not exclusively attracted to the SAME SEX

DON’T CALL

YOURSELF

GAY

DON’T CALL YOURSELF LESBIAN EITHER

you can go fuck yourself cuz I will call myself everything????

In my experience, attitudes like this are found most often in non-black spaces and educated spaces and result in keeping out black and poor people. There is a different attitude towards labeling in black and poor communities, and people LOVE to police and marginalize them. It feels like another tool to create a hierarchy of “most important” LGBT ppl and then shut out those who are “less important”.

When you deal with the messed up side effects of the meds, and you also can’t deal with the pain that comes with living without them…

Lovecraft’s racism was self-evident. It’s time we all admit that

It’s reality…..

Now if only we could do that for other well known authots coughtolkiencough

I hate the passive ass tone of the title: fuck HP Lovecraft and his stories

White people and white nerds LOVE to excuse extreme bigotry like racism and misogyny with the bull-shit excuse of “it was just common the time”. All it does it makes you realize they automatically prioritize other white FEELINGS over brutalized poc because if they didn’t there would be no excuse. They MIGHT try and play if off with “not excusing him” but they’re lying.

They’re so used to prioritizing and venerating whites and dehumanizing poc (especially poc in bygone times) that racism “seems like something small” to them, a totally negligible mar (if they even recognize it as bad) on the personality of their favorite old white guy.

Unlike the whites, we poc never had that ability because it was Literally our grandmothers and great great grand fathers being dehumanized. We are still dehumanized!

According to Google this is indeed John Hanson, a man who wanted to relocate Black Americans to Liberia, this picture was taken in about 1860 but 30 years after commercial photography was introduced. The first president of the continental congress was some unimportant white man also named John Hanson.

This true?

Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)

The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
