this is getting a lil weirrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr-rrr-rrr-rr-rrr
Kim Kelley-Wagner has two daughters who were adopted from China. In everyday life, they have been subjected to horrid statements from people - to their faces, to their mother as they stood by her, etc. In this photo collection, shared on her blog, Kim and her daughters (Lily and Meika) put these ignorant cruelties front and center. [x]
"I have tried to explain to my daughters that people do not say these things to be mean, they say them out of ignorance, which is why I am sharing some of them. Words are powerful, they can become tools or weapons, choose to use them wisely."
i’m honestly deeply ashamed because of the harshness of our worldi’ve heard these same fucking things.
As someone who thought for a long time that she was adopted, I can flat out say that fuck people, they say this shit to be mean. Explain it, understand it, sure. But don’t use ‘they are ignorant’ as a built in excuse for people who are raging fucking assholes.
no dont play with my hair
I figure i’ll take this time to shamelessly promo the blog some friends of mine started: masseffectforsocialjustice!! they’re a sj character blog but they don’t suck (like greek gods for social justice and stuff). Go check them out! they’re pretty new but they have a few mods happy to answer any questions you all have on race, ability, gender, sex, anything really.
*pats u on the head bc u seem really kind*
Of course hon if you actually want to learn I’ll be happy to teach you.
This question probably meant “If the doctor pulled me out and called me female but I feel like I’m a male”, so that’s how I’ll answer.
Tbh I read “you people” & the most inhuman hissing noise escaped me. I was prepared for a rude message, ha.
But thank you so v much, cutie patoot! I’m really, really glad this blog has helped you out & that you’ve picked up something along the way. (:
