I am feeling both overjoyed at our current unity, and also bitter as fuck.
I have seen what America has done to Black and Brown bodies. To women, but especially Black ones. To trans bodies and to sex workers. I have witnessed our cries ignored. Convoluted narratives that evoke fear mongering because we lack the basic understanding to respect people, their choices, their lives and their journey through this existence.
Now I watch the world unite to stand up for each other, but can’t help but think this is only happening because it is finally happening to YOU. No amount of convincing the rest of us have tried has worked to generate interests in our causes.
Now you are feeling it. And I suspect that once this air clears, if it ever does. You will all often forget what it feels like to live this shit everyday of your lives.
