Dear white queer community,
There are proper ways to learn from previous equal rights movements, and to expand upon them. Perhaps the first would be to apply the desire for equality within our own community, because there’s a lot of racism and sexism and anti-trans* fuckery within it.
But you can learn. You can take these experiences you’ve heard about and you can grow as a person, apply what you’ve learned throughout your interactions during your life. You can learn about Jim Crow laws and take the fervor and passion within you for this movement and make sure it extends to the POC in your community.
You cannot take the struggles of POC and whitewash them to throw onto your queer rights movement. That’s tacky, for starters, but more seriously, it’s incorrect, it’s offensive, and it’s just entirely unnecessary.
Please stop. We are better than this. We are better than perpetuating this kind of bullshit.
a white queer person who thinks y’all need to get your shit together.
