And after all these years, the trans community is still at the back of the bus. I despise that. I’m hurt and get depressed a lot about it. But I will not give up because I won’t give the mainstream gay organizations the satisfaction of keeping us down. If we give up, they win. And we can’t allow them to win. The reason we, right now, as a trans community, don’t have the rights they have is that we allowed them to speak for us for so many damn years, and we bought everything they said to us: “Oh, let us pass our bill, then we’ll come for you.”

Yeah, come for me. Thirty-two years later and they’re still coming for me. And what have we got? Here, where it all started, trans people have got nothing. We can no longer let people like the Empire State Pride Agenda, the HRC in Washington, speak for us. And it really hurts me that some gay people don’t even know what we gave for their movement.

Sylvia Rivera in Genderqueer: Voices from Beyond the Binary (via whoisdangerwoman)

I walked up to the train station right as the train was leaving gooooosh darn it

Surprise surprise, it’s racist garbage. It’s like Frankenstine made an abomination out of katy perry, gwen stephani, and ke$ha. I really shouldn’t have to explain what’s wrong with it, but in the first 5 seconds we have:
Butchered the Japanese language
reduced Japanese people into props
bastardized Japanese street fashion
and made ourselves look like we’re trying WAY to hard to revitalize our careers. My guess at the thought process for this was “what do the kids like these days??? What’s that Japanese stuff called.. um.. kuhwaee? Yeah that’ll get us money! We can still keep pretending like Avril Lavigne is relevant to the younger generation!” 
Anyways it was a terrible failure and a really, really sad joke I hope I will never have to see again.

An undeniably large part of what keeps poverty going is the fact that there are people who think that if they vote with the rich they’ll somehow magically become the rich. The trouble is, rich people don’t vote. They own.

"Socialism never took root in America because the poor see themselves not as an exploited proletariat, but as temporarily embarrassed millionaires."
