The second part… DING DING DING. PoC and otherwise.
the fact that people seriously debate whether gentrification exists and whether its a good or bad thing makes it pretty clear how many people value white people’s comfort and access to wine bars and artisanal cheese over POCs ability to, you know, live indoors
we are not talking about overcrowding or lack of housing, we’re talking about homes being demolished to make space for a Whole Foods, and POC being forced out of the city once the rent skyrockets
dumb cunt. in that order.
watch her spirit leave her body.
watch her fall into herself.
take pride in your aim. your precision.
grab a plate.
eat what remains of her.
that is what you do

11. Vladimir Nabokov on Ernest Hemingway (1972)
I had an encounter with this dude (mind you he’s like 30+) this past weekend who tried to hit me with that “there are queens and there are hoes” crap and I had to shut that shit down real quick. all this in front of the damn bar.
Not only that, but he tried to say it’s ‘cause I was “a college girl”. Nah, it’s cause I got common sense.
UGH I hate having extended family over because it means that it’s public debate time on whether I’m losing too much weight or I’m not “curvy” enough which apparently means I’m “unhealthy”. I eat fuckin 3 meals a day I cook for myself I am constantly eating that’s just the way my body is
I am 100% NOT HERE for people who feel the need to give out unsolicited body image advice or comment on my eating habits/weight/exercise regimen etc like nothing I choose to eat is any of your business and my body is mine I do not appreciate when people tell me if I should gain weight or I’m too thin or I’m not doing enough of this or that LIKE FUCK OFF
I’m so angry like my body isn’t up for public debate nor do I eat healthy because I want to lose weight like hmmm maybe I like to eat healthy because I legitimately enjoy cooking my own meals and it gives me more energy??
I’m tired of people who think I have to justify or give explanations for how I like to take care of my body it pisses me off I can’t stand it how bout you go project your own insecurities onto someone else because I’m not having that shit bitch BYE
