WHAT IF QUEER PEOPLE OF COLOR COULD ACTUALLY GO TO THE CLUB WITHOUT BEING ENGULFED IN THE SWEAT OF WHITE QUEERS WHOSE STIFLING GAZES THEY EITHER CAN’T ESCAPE OR WILL ONLY BE THE SUBJECT OF FOR THE SECOND IT TAKES TO RECOGNIZE THAT THEY ARE NOT WHITE
WHAT IF QUEER PEOPLE OF COLOR COULD ACTUALLY GO THE CLUB WITHOUT SEEING A WHITE QUEER WHO DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO TWERK TO BIG FREEDIA AND LOOKS LIKE THEY USE THE WORD RATCHET ON WORDS WITH FRIENDS
WHAT IF QUEER PEOPLE OF COLOR COULD ACTUALLY GO TO THE CLUB WITHOUT HAVING A WHITE QUEER GROPE THEM WITHOUT CONSENT BECAUSE THEY ARE “JUST DRUNK” AND OVERJOYED BY THE KNOWLEDGE OF BEING ABLE TO OCCUPY ANOTHER SPACE WHERE THEY CAN CELEBRATE THEMSELVES AND FEEL ENTITLED TO OTHER PEOPLES’ BODIES
WHAT IF QUEER PEOPLE OF COLOR COULD ACTUALLY GO TO THE CLUB FOR FREE BECAUSE I’M NOT PAYING FOR THIS SHIT AGAIN
Reblogging because PREACH THAT SHIT. SING IT ALL DAY LONG. QPOC ARE FUCKING TIRED OF THIS SHIT.
I am tired of having my shit touched without consent by white people who think they can access my body because we’re drinking and queer. I am tired of white queers who are so self-absorbed they trynna call me out on the streets for being stuck-up-and-too-good-for-thou when I really just don’t want to even ASSOCIATE with their privileged, entitled, misogynistic and racist ass. I am tired of constantly not measuring up to white supremacist and culturally appropriated standards of beauty and dress. I am tired of white queers co-opting POC (and mostly Black) slang to sound ‘cool’.
So tired of this White supremacy game.
I fucking hate those club nights where you literally pay cover to participate in your own oppression like give me a break ‘community’.
