In this moment, Janet Mock and Piers Morgan are historical actors playing out a dynamic centuries in the making. The most perfect possible embodiment of privilege in Western culture is desperately trying to reinforce the existing power structure by controlling the place of the most perfect possible embodiment of those denied privilege in Western culture.
A straight white man is trying to give advice to a black trans woman. And she doesn’t need it.
This is not historic because she said she doesn’t need his advice. It’s historic because she is telling the truth. She doesn’t need his advice. She can take care of herself, and by extension so can her community and anyone embodying difference."

had to shut a bitch down today

Someone put a Smackdown gif here
YOOOOOOOOO I KNOW THIS GIRL
YES YES“You haven’t deleted your Facebook in fear, so I guess you are okay with me finding you” dat logic tho
A masterpiece of shutting down Nice Guys™.
That you haven’t deleted your facebook line is hella creepy. You haven’t removed your social media persona entirely in order to escape me, so that must be a yes. Someone should not have to go so far as to delete their accounts in order for you to catch a “NO” clue. What the fuck.

To celebrate the (approximate) 1-year anniversary of Diversity in YA’s launch on tumblr, we’re giving away all these books! Thank you for celebrating diversity in young adult books with us and continuing to engage in dialogue and increasing awareness!
(To view a document listing all the titles, click here.)
Here’s how this is going to work:
- We’ve divided these books into 4-packs of diverse awesomeness. Don’t worry, series titles will all be kept together, so you won’t end up getting a middle book or a third book in a trilogy without the others.
- We have multiple copies of some titles, so some of them will go into several prize packs.
- We’ll select 17 winners, each of whom will receive a prize pack of 4 books!
- Because of the large number of titles and the cost of international shipping, we’re only able to ship to U.S. mailing addresses. International folks may enter as long as they have a U.S. mailing address.
- Teachers and librarians get an extra entry!
- The deadline to enter is March 31, 2014.
(If you can’t see the Rafflecopter entry form on your tumblr dash, you can also enter at our website.)
Thank you so much to the following publishers for donating books to our Anniversary Giveaway:
Amazing giveaway from an excellent blog! Darn my Canadian mailing address…
