So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.
I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.
TW FOR THE CONTENT BELOW. It contains spoilers and descriptions of transmisogyny.
One of the best things you can do for your loved one is to take a task off their hands that they’re struggling with or dreading, even if you don’t understand why it’s so hard for them. I know that, personally, it makes me feel like an actual physical weight has been lifted off of my shoulders.
It might seem really simple and easy to you, especially if they have a non-visible disability, but try to remember that you aren’t living with their limitations and you don’t know what is hard for them and what isn’t.
Also remember that we’re almost constantly made to feel guilty for needing our treatments and accommodations in the first place, so it’s extra hard for us to admit that we need help.
Because a man has to be a sociopath to love a woman with cellulite.
Fuck this world.
If all residents of hell look like Scarlett Johansson, I renounce my atheism and take up Satanism
whoever wrote this needs to be punched. a lot.
breaking news: man somehow isn’t repulsed at the sight of his beautiful, talented girlfriend because she has a bumpy texture on a bit of her legs
This just in: reporter unaware of how the female human body stores fat, having never seen one up close before.
If that’s what Hell looks like, I feel better about inevitably going there
I’ll take a first class ticket to hell please.
If your solution requires racists to “look within” themselves.
If you’re trying to guilt-trip white folks.
If you’re trying to “convince” racists to stop.
That shit aint a solution. Marching, holding up signs, and signing petitions all require white people to approve.
Think about YOUR solution and does it fit the description. Black people can only win by liberating themselves. ✌️✌️

Taken from MANTRAS zine
This zine is a culmination of how i got myself thru/still getting myself thru things and also things that i love and things that make me happy, mostly Stevie Nicks. I hope i don’t come off as someone who has her shit together, most of this zine is me yelling at myself and it’s really difficult to follow the directions that i give to myself, like “TAKE WHAT’S YOURS” and “DON’T HIDE!” it’s very difficult and on most days i don’t follow these directions and i fail completely. But i still yell at myself because it’s necessary that i always have these things etched in me so i have something to hold on to when shit hits the fan. - Fabiola
