I have been dealing with so much of my own violence this week in the form of street sexual violence (a straight man took out his thing and jacked off to me in a park [ironically right next to the local LGBT community centre in the middle of the gay Village!] without my consent three days ago! It was super racialized and was only happening because of my status as a biracial femme presenting woman)… If lesbians would give queer women of colour even 1% of the Official Marsha P. Johnson Pride Month Shirt public air time that queer men of colour who experience more overt police violence(violence that is more about physical brutality than it is about sexual assault / sexual violence/stalking/rape or community exclusion) are rightfully finally getting right now, I would be HAPPY!
Marsha P. Johnson Pride Month Shirt, Tank Top, V-neck, Ladies Tee For Men And Women
And I’m not sure how to talk about this and about “white lesbians excluding me from lesbian spaces” problems as still impacting me on a major level / impacting my life and ability to have relationships with other queer women or to feel safe on the streets as a lesbian femme woman of colour in an OUTSIZED WAY…. At this time when 1,)white lesbians are starting to reject anti-blackness as a trend finally…ironically after decades of treating anti-blackness as “just lesbian” in the way that veganism or owning cats was “just lesbian”.. 2 ) BUT most of the conversation is still on police violence and on MENS issues (not that the men are not valid, and obviously physical violence should be talked about but so should sexual violence and relational violence via exclusion), NOT Official Marsha P. Johnson Pride Month Shirt on women of colours issues…
Official Marsha P. Johnson Pride Month Sweatshirt, Hoodie
I have literally had white folks (white queer community organizers) stand on a stage and profess their allegiance to black lives matter at a drag event and then proceed to glare me down from the stage at said event (not even 5 minutes later) as if I should not be in the audience, oh, no! when I paid the same admission fee as everyone else there. (I am high femme, biracial/half black mistaken for brown, and cis-presenting). This was happening because I was the only cis femme presenting woman of colour at the event who was not one of the girlfriends of the drag kings and Official Marsha P. Johnson Pride Month Shirt did not come to the show with a partner. As in, I was the only cis femme presenting woman of colour there who was single or dateless.
