"there is a test tomorrow"

"do it for me"
What remains once the war is won?
A kingdom of corpses.
His name too heavy in my mouth.
What do we become in death?
What do we keep once we are ghosts?
The blood under my fingernails.
His crooked teeth.
Searching for happiness in the threads of his hands.
A love that burned alive.
A love that is still bursting in my hollow chest.
A love that was never enough.
What do you do when you’re alone in the darkness?
Wait for him,
I’ll wait forever if I must.
Were you ever able to name one hero who was happy?
biphobia? more like byephobia
it’s amazing how bi women have to defend and justify their reasons for wanting representation
we can’t just say “we want representation too”, because there seems to be this notion that everything we are is connected, in some way, to men. never mind that the idea that bi women are attracted to only men and women is wrong and exclusionary of nonbinary people’s experiences and existence, and especially nonbinary bi people’s experiences and existence
we’re framed as having an Agenda because people think that by bi women saying they want representation, they want only one kind of representation and are thereby gonna harm or sabotage f/f ships. because, u know, bi women are Only Attracted To Men! so by that logic, we’re gonna flood media with m/f relationships!
when what we really, deep down, what we really want is representation of bi women. that’s it. good, solid representation of bi women and women-identifying bi people that doesn’t engage in every gross stereotype. whether that representation comes with m/f relationships, f/f relationships, nb/nb relationships etc—i’d welcome any of it. all i want is good representation for bi ppl and bi women
i want bi women who aren’t afraid to say they’re bi, instead of going “oh, erm, i’m fluid, i’m flexible”, i want bi women who aren’t fetishised and sexualised by their male colleagues once the subject of bisexuality comes up. i want bi women who engage in threesomes and polyamory and bi women who don’t. i want bi women to have conversations about bisexuality with their friends that don’t revolve around “are you half-gay, half-straight? are you straight now? are you a lesbian now? etc
but there is such mistrust of bi women bc there is this belief we’re gonna like, idk, Back Up Heterosexuality if there’s a m/f relationship involving a bi women, or like that’s the only kind of representation we want. and it annoys me cos we’re entitled to representation too, good representation, and we shouldn’t have to defend ourselves when we ask for representation or justify ourselves as to why we want representation
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
you know that mood you get in sometimes where you just fucking are in love with drinking water
