it’s really funny how in my first year of college, i’d tell everyone (mostly LA people) that oakland is my favorite city in the country and get shocked responses with them being like, “isn’t it like compton?” but now all of them (or at least those who didn’t move back home) live here.
if you’re an Asian girl with a preference for white guys sorry to break it to ya but please fight the white supremacy and self hate in you. Saying this because I love and respect you and want the best for you
me: *sees a white boy* *locks my car doors*
white boy: *knocks on window* what would you be doing if I was in there with you ;)

today’s the first time in a looooong while that i’ve worked at the oakland office (‘cause we’re signing the lease to move to alameda ‘cause of—duh—gentrification). and, like, even though i don’t come to oakland as much as i use to, i still come (for non-work reasons) about about 1-2 times a month and every time i spot something completely new. but, jah, this is the first time in a while that i’ve been immersed in downtown and it’s a totally new world (granted, for the past two years, i’ve said this every single time i visit). like, while there’s a bunch of new independent restaurants and stores, which are kinda great, they’ve all replaced an old mom and pop that happened to be not as “hip”. like, i remember when 1056 clay street was cursed and use to change hands like nothing ‘cause all the hip restaurants there didn’t have a proper market in the area, but now the restaurant there has pretty booming business. and, like, while that’s a good thing, it’s really telling of the changing atmosphere.
did some good tweets today i think

following through pu-lyf
“A racist woman is not a feminist; she doesn’t care about helping women, just the women who look like her and can buy the same things she can. A transphobic woman is not a feminist; she is overly concerned with policing the bodies and expressions of others. A woman against reproductive rights — to use bell hook’s own example, and an issue close to your heart — is not a feminist; she prioritizes her dogma or her disgust over the bodies of others. An ableist woman is not a feminist; she holds some Platonic ideal of what a physically or mentally “whole” person should be and tries to force the world to fit inside it.”

Women against feminism are basically just arguing that their individual lives are fine and they don’t care about what other women go through
Similar to people of color who deny racism.
