Android : You dont get to pat yourself on the back for being diverse if you have white writers guessing how black characters might respond in a situation. It doesnt matter how many black people you outsource your questions to. Try hiring us. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.

Twitter Web App : Here’s my issue with people saying they don’t care if someone is gay...

That’s privilege. Being gay/lesbian/queer has an impact on a person. If they’ve been closeted for decades it’s because they were worried, had anxiety, or whatever, so you should absolutely care.

Care more.

1) This character needs to wear a flower.
2) What flowers are medicinal, inflorescent, and native to Southeast Asia?
3) [an hour remembering what acanthus is]
4) Fuck, are any of these red?
5) ...nope!
6) Purple’s prettier anyway.

TweetDeck : Awake at 4:58 Saturday night / Sunday morning, listening to Siouxie and the Banshees, worrying about what Monday will bring. It would be just like college except (1) Im home, not at a club (2) Im wearing headphones (3) there really is something to worry about on Monday.

and how fucking sad is it,
that peace can bring its own terror.

Twitter Web App : most stuff aint poems ✒ I imagined a poem shark sending in his enforcers. They dont break knee caps. They rifle through your books and argue lit crit until you fling poems at them. This is all mitigated by the time you heard one quietly weeping over a sad line in your hallway.

Its a political stance against White Supremacy.

Making it illegal to be Anti-Fascist is exactly what fascist governments do. Trump is the real terrorist. Every day he uses state violence and encourages attacks against Latinos. #PortlandProtest

Twitter Web App : If you’re watching the Portland rally from Twitter today, remember the context:
