It’s simple. I don’t believe in wasting my energy arguing when we can either cuddle, fuck or make love. I don’t understand fighting each other when we should be fighting together against the enemy. Why stress out one another when we can use our bodies as a vehicle of relief. Why do relationships have to be so complicated when they don’t have to. It’s fucking easy! Find someone who resides on the same level as you in terms of peace of mind and go on to create something beautiful. Laugh, fuck, love and just enjoy the time you both have on this earth while you can.

Heller ther, read this today in the local news and thought of you. Thoughts? Experiences? "PORTLAND, Ore. - A non-profit group called The Cupcake Girls brings boxes of cupcakes to strip clubs in Portland each month to build a connection with women in the adult industry and offer what they call "non-judgmental support."

mmmmilk answered:

After reading further into what these women do, I don’t think it’s a bad idea. Not every club and dancer has the opportunities like where I am. There are still very much lows of the industry here in Portland and I’m glad there are resources out there for the women who don’t know where to turn. We look out for our sisters as much as we can but we can’t solve everyone’s problems, ya know?

I interviewed them. They are located in Vegas and Portland. It is formed by a group of hairdressers in Vegas. They say they are not religiously affiliated.

However, after the news of Cedar Hills Baptists in Beaverton, I think it’s even more patronizing. IMO.

Bad Ass Black Goths: A Photoset For You To Reblog & Throw In People’s Faces

by Nuestra Hermana

In case you didn’t know, there has always been a lot of backwards ass racist sentiments towards black goths. Statements like, “there aren’t any black goths”, “black people just don’t look right as goth”, “Black goths are scary”, “Black people shouldn’t be goth” are prominent throughout the internet and within clubs and community circles.

Translated, these statements in their simplest root read something along the lines of: Black people cannot be gothic because they are not white.

Of course, not every non-black goth is this way but you will see more than plenty proclaim any of the above without a thought of how erasing and racist it is towards black goths.

Recently, I read someone posting something along the very same sentiment, claiming they had never seen a black person “pull off” being goth.

This here, is for all of you dears who truly believe that. I’m here to simply show you that Black goths do it real fucking well & are just as dark souled & artistically amazingly magnificent in the goth community (if not even more, yes, I did just say that to you.)

If you don’t know much about this or simply don’t believe me, you can read more for yourself here , where someone is asking for advice on “on how you would approach one” and here, where someone claims that black people make terrible vampires (TW: racist slurs)… and here where a black goth is attacked for simply asking if there are any other black goths in his area.

If you’re black and goth and want some support:

Black & African American Goths

Black/African-American Goths (364 members! Yes.)

Ps: I had a bunch more pictures but I couldn’t fit them in to this photoset.

Look, without our stories, without the true nature and reality of who we are as People of Color, nothing about fanboy or fangirl culture would make sense. What I mean by that is: if it wasn’t for race, X-Men doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the history of breeding human beings in the New World through chattel slavery, Dune doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the history of colonialism and imperialism, Star Wars doesn’t make sense. If it wasn’t for the extermination of so many Indigenous First Nations, most of what we call science fiction’s contact stories doesn’t make sense. Without us as the secret sauce, none of this works, and it is about time that we understood that we are the Force that holds the Star Wars universe together. We’re the Prime Directive that makes Star Trek possible, yeah. In the Green Lantern Corps, we are the oath. We are all of these things—erased, and yet without us—we are essential.
