Anonymous said: Tbh this new idea that loads of nb people are just "teenage girls trying to be cool" (which is not true at all and the teenage girl part reeks of misogyny) kind of reminds me of the whole "teenage girls pretend to be bi to be cool" myth and think that saying that helps the real bisexuals/real trans people™ when all it really does is make people doubt their identities and feel insecure about them.
WHOOP there it is.
Martin Luther King, Jr in a 1955 response to an accusation that he was “disturbing the peace” by his activism during the Montgomery Bus Boycott in Montgomery, Alabama
His words remind us that it was and still is, true justice, not simply “peace” which is the end goal of any civil rights movement —no matter how uncomfortable that may make so-called moderates, the privileged or members of the oppressor class
Hollow calls for “love & peace” without directly acknowledging and addressing structural racism, racial profiling and especially police brutality (a subject King specifically addressed in his most famous speech) are meaningless platitudes and offer comfort to only the oppressor, not the oppressed
