'And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees,
give me somethin' beautiful
books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.'
i am the queen mole rat
23, queer basement dweller,
canadian swamp person,
lover and creep.
I’m real tired of seeing skinny white kids painted as THE AVERAGE QUEER. Like please show me a curvy Indian agender kid from Brooklyn, a hispanic lesbian and her black girlfriend. A trans demisexual dude from Korea. GIVE ME SOMETHING OTHER THAN LANKY PALE PEOPLE WITH COLORFUL HAIR PLEASE GOD.
I will never stop linking to this article: Black People Make Up Largest Share of LGBT Community

Anonymous said: 95% of white people already know that "wow, we're all human". I agree that everything that's happening in Ferguson is absolutely unacceptable, and reflects awfully on us but it most definitely is not a true representation of majority of white people. I don't know what the US is like, but its definitely not the case 99% of the time here in Australia.
lol any australians wanna set this anon straight? bc their statements don’t gel with anything i’ve heard.
also, i think this might be the most generic, boring-as-fuck anon i’ve ever received.
Until the 1960s, it was legal to kill an Aboriginal because the Australian government literally did not view them as people. Even after they were granted personhood, the government viewed them differently. They weren’t held to the same voting standards as non-Aboriginals until 1983. Queensland could legally force an Aboriginal to live on a reservation until 1971 and didn’t grant them the right to own property until 1975.
Racism isn’t like some weird quirk us Americans have that the rest of the world can gaze down on with haughty disgust. It’s not climate change denial.
