"Men fear witches because they take their power from the earth without poisoning the soil."

I just read the introduction to one of the readings for my Anthro Class, and it reminded me of the readings I would usually due for my Ethnic Studies classes, and so I checked how much I had to read to brace myself, and it’s only 7 pages, like this is so beautiful, at UCSD we would have readings literally 50 pages long and only talk about a very specific part of the text.
But yeah, I can totally do this!
shit i am tired of
cis people get pronouns. trans people get preferred pronouns.
cis people get a gender. trans people get to identify as a gender.
these are microaggressions designed to undermine and invalidate who we know ourselves to be, and to reinforce the perceived inauthenticity of trans people.
this is always harmful, and for some, primarily trans feminine people and esp trans feminine poc, it can be dangerous or deadly.
Aaaaaand there’s something I hadn’t thought about, internalizing as of now.
