TRANS IN AMERICA

i want everyone who urges victims of abuse, especially long-term abuse victims, to consider before they demand victims consider the humanity of their abusers. i want them to consider who’s probably the expert in all the good things they did, once, and all the reasons why it isn’t that bad, it isn’t like they’re a monster.
then maybe humanize abuse victims for a change.
no one has the right to touch you, with or without invitation. touching you is a privilege not a right.
You know what I hate? When people get pissed off when you tell them you don’t want them to touch you. Like excuse me, I don’t actually want you to touch my arm. I don’t want a hug right now. I don’t give a shit if you’re family. I don’t care if the phrase “I don’t want to be touched” puts you off. Just don’t fucking touch me.
"I design clothes because I don’t want women to look all innocent and naïve…I want woman to look stronger…I don’t like women to be taken advantage of…I don’t like men whistling at women in the street. I think they deserve more respect. I like men to keep their distance from women, I like men to be stunned by an entrance. I’ve seen a woman get nearly beaten to death by her husband. I know what misogyny is … I want people to be afraid of the women I dress"

John Crawford’s “concerned citizen” admits he lied.
So he should go to jail.
John Crawford is dead because ONE paranoid white man and his wife decided he was a threat to public safety and called 911. The story he originally gave police is falling apart because — SURPRISE! —- there are security cameras, so now he’s changed his tune.
FUCK HIM! GO THE FUCK TO JAIL
