Diary of a non-writer
" Dear diary…
…….Today is ( insert date)…The end”
Getting used to feeling. Similar to when your leg falls asleep…. its fucking annoying and for a split second , you aren’t sure if you’ll ever be normal again
Redirecting my blog to serve as more of a centering activity. There will be more me, more writing from me, but still the same dirty queer shit…. stay with me :)

Another NYC billboard…
This one is messed up!
It IS messed up that that billboard is stating a FACT. The fact that over one half of all African American pregnancies end in abortion. The fact that 80+% of abortion mills are in minority neighborhoods.
It IS messed up.
And yet WE are the racist ones.
yes, you are the racist ones.
where are you after those brown babies are born? do you speak up when they’re hunted down and beaten by the police? do you speak up against a system that systematically works to oppress them, making the decision to have a child so much harder because having a child is so much more than giving birth? are you going to help pay for their healthcare? schooling? housing? food? Where are you when it comes to discussing why the fuck is the system made so that PoC have less access to a better education, financial aid, work etc.
Don’t pretend to care about brown babies when they’re beaten and killed every day and you people are no where to be found.
Racist piece of shit.

reblogging for that paragraph ^^
A few years ago, I read an article where the mother of this child was actually upset at how her daughter’s photo was used.
Reminder that the claim that 80% of abortion clinics are located in minority neighborhoods is a complete and utter lie propagated by anti-choicers. The real percentage of abortion clinics located in predominantly black neighborhoods is 9%.
63% are located near neighborhoods that are made up of mostly non-hispanic white people. [x]
But of course instead of maybe taking a look at the reason many PoC seek out abortions, anti-choicers would rather make up statistics and cry “I’m not racist! Pro-choicers are racist because they let PoC make their own decisions!”
(I also love that these kinds of statements come straight from people who will appropriate tragedies like slavery, genocide, or the murder of PoC and pretend they’re equivalent to abortion. So not racist.)

Also, that “over one half of all African American pregnancies end in abortion” is complete bullshit.
