So I get back from my little vacation and find that Black Amazon took down her blog.
I don’t have a lot to say about that, because it should be obvious that it fucking angers me that white feminist bloggers (need I say ‘certain white feminists’? Or name some names? Nah, I’m sure y’all are smart enough to figure out who I mean) are silencing, disparaging, stealing from, and otherwise oppressing women of color bloggers all while whining about how they are victims and oh, it’s so sad. WON’T SOMEONE THINK OF THE WHITE WOMEN PLEASE!
It’s all just so much bullshit. I have a long post about it coming, but I wanted to say one thing:
I’m not going anywhere.
And let me also say that this is not some sort of underhand condemnation of those who choose to close down their blogs because of this shit. I understand the inclination. I support that choice. There have been times when I had to step away from this blog and other parts of the internet just to salvage my sanity. One day I may need to do so again. But right now? Right now I am staying here.
(and oh, you don’t know how hard it is for me not to use gendered slurs against you whiny little princesses right now. oooo!)
