. supporters calling for this BE CLEAR! Palestine is a popular and easy target for white Jewish women who don’t want to examine their shit through nuanced conversation and principled struggle with Muslim women and throwing away feels good.

. You got comfortable with the pats on the back for such “good work”, for uniting women, building a base. So comfortable that you forgot you did so on the backs of marginalized folks that you didn’t flinch when you had the opportunity to dispose of them.

. You say the problem is Farrakhan but be honest, your issue is . Your issue is that burning feeling in your gut, the one you can’t quite name but it won’t go away. We call that, white supremacy. You thought you cured it, but you only got comfortable

. As much drama as we’ve had with the WM’s folks. That’s our stuff but they will NEVER be disposable. What won’t happen without shit being said FRANKLY AND BLUNTLY, is this. You don’t get to demand from others what you are unable and unwilling to give.

California is using incarcerated workers to fight its deadliest wildfires. They're making as little as $1/day. Sign the petition: Tell & this practice must end.

Today and every day, we remember and mourn all the lives lost to anti-trans violence. It is also a day to honor the resilience of our community. We will not be forgotten, we will not be erased.

P.S. the total and complete erasure and failure to center Latinx women, Trans women, and girls is an unacceptable and direct result of that tragic comfort.

. supporters who support it looks like you just don’t know what to do with so you’ve opted to throw her away on gp (while chanting families should stay together, and ) so throwing her away is also easy.
