Basically life as a student, person of color, activist, lover, extremist, twin, non monogamist, dancer, person who is fluid,feminist, human,gender non conforming, food enthusiast,friend, superhero/regular person :) Most of this will probably be retelling of things I've heard and seen, and something will just be for the hell of it.
At the last Sober Sunday we had the Africana Book Club meet. The theme of this month was Afrofuturism. We watched a short film, Pumzi and then discussed its Afrofuturistic elements. Below are the notes that came from our discussion.

This would be super useful for someone who wanted to wear lipstick but couldn’t put it on straight because of shaking hands.
And yet you all are laughing about it because it isn’t useful for your own everyday lives? Making fun of the very people that this device would be useful for - the “handicapable?”
Probably because you’ve never been forced to stop and think about how you’d do mundane shit like putting on your lipstick with a disability. Do me a favor and stop using outdated, ableist words like “handicapable” and stop making disability the butt of the joke.
I was gonna unleash some cripple rage but then mohala sumiko fukkin nailed it
Yo fuck ableist nonsense this is a rad idea for fellow sick femmes out there
Oh, I’m so ready to add to the cripple rage pile.
Fun story ables - a year ago I tried to give all my make up to my sister because I couldn’t even put mascara on anymore without it getting all over my face thanks to tremors. Luckily she just told me she’d do my make up if I needed it.
Even now if I want to put eyeliner on it takes over an hour because I have to redo so much of it with how shaky my hands get. You can see why I haven’t worn any in over nine months.
I am a femme goddess. My femme is badass. My femme requires so much more dedication than abled femmes could ever understand. My femme is eyebrow pencils that I wear daily because my eyebrows fall out in patches from illness. My femme is amazing and equally as queer as yours and your abled ass is never going to look as cute as my disabled femme magic.
Reblogging a second time to bask in awe at carson’s disabled femme motherfucking majesticness
Smart work on the street, from a sharp artist and close homie of ours — whatup GILF! The last two images are from a building where the landlord recently got old school NYC, and destroyed the building to displace rent-stabilized tenants. They’re in court now. See the video here.
