7 Trans Women of Color; all killed during the season that holds Pride Month. The queer community is still abuzz with the last vestiges of the season that promises parades, alcohol, and ‘a freedom to be you.’ So often, the larger LGBTQ “community,” has this idea that we’re all equally policed for being a part of this population. Without doubt, the summer of 2014 has proven that this is not the case.

…are the names of the 7 women that have fallen this season before Alejandra; and there is no protest for them. They are the silent-fallen that have fallen silent. There is an epidemic of trans female genocide; a cure to this maddening, tragic plague has yet to be seen.

Please #RememberAlejandra. If we continue to brush over the victimization of TWoC then again and again these beautiful lives will be cut short; again and again, #GirlsLikeUs will be made victims of hatred.

Jews are not an angelic people where the all the true ones have taken our experiences in being oppressed and murdered and expelled and persecuted and used it hone perfect politics and fights for justice. The Jews who ethnically cleanse villages and send airstrikes at…

GOYIM, amirite? They think Scarlett Johansson is a dangerous war criminal while they keep fapping to actual gross Republican Robert Downey, Jr. And then wonder why Jews historically dominate intelligence tests???

I’ve taken a hiatus from Tumblr lately (and social media in general, but especially Tumblr) because I don’t want to start hating my online friends for their anti-semitism.

אני רק רוצה לדבר עם החברים היהודים שלי אבל אני לא מדבר עברית טוב…

דברו על החתולים ואוכל…?

I’m sorry but I have to call out the anti-semitism in anti-zionist discourse.

"Judeo-nazis"… how fucking dare you.

Talking about “real jews” and how they oppose Israel… how fucking dare you.

Subtly implying the media is controlled by the “jews”… how fucking dare you. 

These are all things I’ve seen reblogged by my comrades recently.

White privilege is posting a manifesto on Youtube and carrying out a mass shooting that causes more deaths than the Boston Marathon bombing and the media doesn’t label you a terrorist.

I walk out into the rain and wonder how to love this. How to find a place in these uncomfortable groups, in this tradition which has no mention of me. How can I love Yiddish, a language in which the only word I can find that possibly refers to trans people is ‘timtum’ - which comes from the word for ‘stupid’ or ‘ineffectual.’ I wonder how to hold my cheek to these cracked shards and still love what hurts me, what has erased and denies me. I know Judaism itself is a model. It maintains a faith in all that is, despite the Jewish experience of extreme anti-Semitism and genocide. I think this is about a commitment to survival. Judaism presents this example: that at our most inspired we choose to honor the holiness of this world. We choose to live fully, which requires a faith in the potential for improvement of this world.


I walk down the Broadway Bridge in the pelting rain. My insides hurt with the void that should be family, community. I chant kadosh kadosh kadosh. This world hurts and it is holy.

Omg look at petas response Holy shit what the fuck burn them omg

Vegetarianism: because i care more about cows and chickens than the poor foreign poc who pick my organic veggies

Why are you acting like peta is anything more than a toddler throwing a tantrum, as if this is a reasonable response we should even pretend to consider? Why do you think this article mentions peta before mentioning the farmers? Because people get off on hating vegetarians, and peta is a shitstorm of crazy controversy. They offer literally nothing to the dialogue on animal rights because they are HORRIBLE PEOPLE.
If you want to assign blame for the rising price of quinoa, blame capitalism, not people who choose to abstain from eating meat.
Also interesting: "Quinoa Craze Inspires North America to Start Growing Its Own" (NPR).

I agree, you’re completely right. I was just very taken aback by their comment. I think any “vegetarian hate” is misplaced but I believe most people are angry at the blatant hypocrisy supporters of PETA show when they pretend to care so much about animals and disregard human life. Capitalism is the main culprit here and anyone would be foolish to argue otherwise but I don’t think being angry at that particular “Animal-rights” organization equates to vegan hate.But I understand your grievances as It would be very disingenuous for people to be angry with what these farmers face solely when it comes to opposing vegetarianism or veganism as they just become tools to justify themselves as meat eaters. This kind of stuff should make us angry all of the time, not just when PETA says something stupid again.

I agree 100000%. My criticism was aimed at the person who reblogged your post, not you. Your distaste for PETA means you’re a decent human.
