"A woman is only vulnerable when her nail polish is drying, and even then she can still pull a trigger."

some great quote I heard somewhere once upon a time and that is very, very true (via traffic-jam-session)

date a girl who reads. date a girl who reads every book she can get her hands on. who slaughtered a librarian to read those books. date a girl who shoots down helicopters with slingshots and commands an army. wait, did i say date? i meant follow into battle. follow Tamika Flynn into battle.

Thank you for bringing joy into my childhood and life with your voice and acting. Thank you for your contagious jokes, your wacky impersonations, and amazing acting. Thank you for making my childhood experience better, and thank you for bringing joy to those even though you battled with your own joy. If only you could have known how much you’ve impacted people. Your life work will live on, and you will never be forgotten. I know I won’t forget you. Thank you for helping me whenever I felt sad and having a film for every mood. Gone, but never forgotten.

Another post from the Tea Blogger.  This one addresses the appropriation of LQBTQIA issues in a post by Andy.  Andy’s post also focuses on Brittany’s death.  I want to be careful to avoid doing what Andy is doing: appropriating Brittany’s death for a particular purpose.  Rather, these posts focus on the way Andy uses Brittany’s death.  Even just a few hours ago he reminded blog readers that he’s the survivor of a triple homicide.  Absolutely true, but also a fact mobilised by Andy to particular purpose.  He’s now clearly entering the Teen Wolf fandom and has to ensure new followers quickly become aware of his tragic history.

Here is the Tea Blogger’s post.  It speaks from an LGBTQIA subject position and addresses a post by Andy from 2012, as well as relevant posts since then.  It’s a clear analysis of how Andy uses Brittany’s death to specific ends, this time appropriating LGBTQIA issues in order to frame the homicide and his experience of it and its aftermath in a particular way.

***Trigger warnings on this post for homicide, violence, LGBTQIA appropriation.***

Andy’s post: A Mile In Your Shoes

[Andy originally posted this in 2012. Somehow I managed to miss it at the time, but now that I’ve read it, I feel that there are many claims made in this post that need to be publicly refuted. It’s easy to find because of the tags and it is deeply problematic, so I can’t leave it alone in good conscience.]

"If women are allegedly passive and fragile, then why are Black women treated as “mules” and assigned heavy cleaning chores? If good mothers are supposed to stay at home with their children, then why are U.S Black women on public assistance forced to find jobs and leave their children in day care? If women’s highest calling is to become mothers, then why are Black teen mothers pressured to use Norplant and Depo Provera? In the absence of a viable Black feminism that investigates how intersecting oppressions of race, gender, and class foster these contradictions, the angle of vision created by being deemed devalued workers and failed mothers could easily be turned inward, leading to internalized oppression. But the legacy of struggle among U.S Black women suggests that a collectively shared Black women’s oppositional knowledge has long existed. This collective wisdom in turn has spurred U.S Black women to generate a more specialized knowledge, namely, Black feminist thought as critical social theory."

In Black Feminist Thought: Knowledge, Consciousness and the Politics of Empowerment, published in 1990, Black feminist Patricia Hill Collins extends and updates the social contradictions raised by Sojourner Truth, while crediting collective struggles waged historically with establishing a “collective wisdom” among Black women: (x)
