“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.” ~ Desmond Tutu
I will not remain silent, as I shall not side with the oppressor. I will also not whitesplain racism. I will, instead, use my platform to amplify the voices of those oppressed by the white heteronormative cis patriarchy.
The following posts will be reposted from sources that I respect, and learn from everyday. I hope that you will follow their pages and take the time to listen to them. I hope that you will sit with your discomfort. I hope that you will resist your urge to stammer “not ALL white women/straight men/cis people…” I urge you to look at the parts that make you uncomfortable and do the work to find out WHY this makes you uncomfortable.
