i also find it extra fucking sketchy that the UN has reached out to Emma Watson who has no feminist credentials past playing a character she didn’t write and giving one speech but has not reached out to Beyonce who has built a shelter for homeless women put on a performance where only women were featured on stage and has written an essay on feminism
just a small town girl. Living in a racist, insensitive, sexist, homophobic world,
(cant take the midnight train ‘cause im fuckin scared)
Just a city boy, shot by cops in south Detroit
"He coulda had a gun hiding anywhere"
Up and down the boulevard
Trash cops, assholes in the night
(it goes on and on and on and on)
When a financial institution asks me my “mother’s maiden name” as a security question. Because it’s assumed that I have at least one and no more than one mother in my life AND that she married AND that she gave up her own name AND that that part of her identity was erased enough from my public history so as to be a password to access my private information.
Holy crap, I never realized.
