It frustrates me that so many outreach programs want to impose over-strict morality and care on people who already lost everything. They think they know how people can be better, and they try to hammer the homeless into their own cookie-cutter forms.
Vices like drinking and smoking are extraordinarily human. It makes me angry that people claiming to care for others demand the performance of denial before offering assistance.
Hobo Christmas, alc mention
There's always a need for socks, blankets, etc. in winter months, and people in need are grateful for them.
That's not Christmas, though.
This holiday, consider just buying a six-pack of beer, a few bottles of cheap champagne, and handing them out personally. Give someone the gift of your accepting that they are a person allowed to have vices, allowed to want a drink with a buddy. Bring a damn cookie and a 40, because a tray of vegan spaghetti ain't Christmas.
My friend Catherine (@Riki_Kiki_Taco on birdsite) is attempting to curate a list of Native sellers for the holiday season.
If you're a Native with things to sell, or know of a Native with a business, please drop her some deets!
White queers aren't the only fucking queer people on this damn website.
Stop speaking over other queer people.
White queers are still white. And still have to overcome internalized racism and bullshit. Being queer does not erase how they're white.
Stop acting like your queerness means you can speak above POC or indigenous people.
And stop using your queer card when you get called out for racism.
Be a fucking adult and own up to when you say something shitty.
I'm done with y'all.
