It gives me strength to have somebody to fight for; I can never fight for myself, but, for others, I can kill.

I had a conversation with a friend today about how guilty she felt struggling with personal problems and mental health considering all the suffering and tragedy and injustice in the world, currently and always.

And my presently irreligious self was reminded of this passage from Eat, Pray, Love:

I LOVE YOU

Quote reads "I hope that in the future white women will put my face on tshirts and make money with them cause I like capitalism, it’s like not even that bad y’all" -Famous Inspirational Quote that Frida Kahlo did not say. 
Baruch Porras Hernandez has been killing it on facebook with his Frida posts and now he’s turned one into a meme.

Don’t let the media warp your perception of beauty. Beauty is pizza. 

Towards the whole "pronouns hurt people's feelings" topic. Am I REALLY the only person on the planet that thinks people are becoming far to sensative? Nearly to the point that they shouldn't leave their little home bubbles in the case that a bird chirps next to them in a way that sounds like a mean word. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, we're becoming a little TOO coddling and people need to learn to deal with simplistic shit like words. And yes, I've been insulted and made fun of. I got over it. So can you.

Supposedly invented by the Chinese, there is an ancient form of torture that is nothing more than cold, tiny drops falling upon a person’s forehead. 

On its own, a single drop is nothing. It falls upon the brow making a tiny splash. It doesn’t hurt. No real harm comes from it. 

In multitudes, the drops are still fairly harmless. Other than a damp forehead, there really is no cause for concern. 

The key to the torture is being restrained. You cannot move. You must feel each drop. You have lost all control over stopping these drops of water from splashing on your forehead. 

It still doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But person after person, time and time again—would completely unravel psychologically. They all had a breaking point where each drop turned into a horror. Building and building until all sense of sanity was completely lost. 

"It was just a joke, quite being so sensitive."

"They used the wrong pronoun, big deal."

"So your parents don’t understand, it could be worse."

Day after day. Drop after drop. It builds up. A single instance on its own is no big deal. A few drops, not a problem. But when you are restrained, when you cannot escape the drops, when it is unending—these drops can be agony. 

People aren’t sensitive because they can’t take a joke. Because they can’t take being misgendered one time. Because they lack a thick skin. 

People are sensitive because the drops are unending and they have no escape from them. 

You are only seeing the tiny, harmless, single drop hitting these so-called “sensitive” people. You are failing to see the thousands of drops endured before that. You are failing to see the restraints that make them inescapable.

If you have trouble understanding why marginalized folks “are so freakin’ sensitive” about small mistakes or oversights, please read this.
