White people who are one step removed from the privilege of a straight white cis man are more focused on bridging that step rather than working to dismantle the system of privilege in the first place.

Well. Have gotten to the last day of classes as a first year and I think I’m still ok. Had a few rough spots but it’s been nice.

this piece has a lot of jumbled wordiness to it and will focus on the body/dysphoria a lot, so decide for yourself if you want to read it <3

first off, @magdaliny introduced me to artist bucky (ive always been a fan of photographer buck but im game) and it felt like a nice reversal of ‘steve adoringly draws bucky’ cause buck would draw steve with the same adoration

second, i remember the first trans steve i drew and it was so tentative and well, not ill-informed but def underinformed. i had completely blanked out that i have a body like his so i really didnt know what to do 

now, about 3 years later, my steve has shifted plenty in terms of looks, enriched by bits of stories/criticism from other trans people, inspiration from people in my circle, my personal experience, etc.

a thing that inspired his design is the iconic Cis remark of ‘omg youd make the perfect girl’/’you look amazing as a girl’ which could cause so much dysphoria if youre really Not a girl so you alternate between ‘oh i did something right in life by looking like this’  and ‘fuck this is not how im supposed to look’  so its a weird love-hate flux. which i see steve having with the hourglass figure and full breasts. also breakin the slim person=small breasts which would be another source of frustration for him

another thing is the hunched back; its a bit of a double-insp: once-myself, i used to hunch like hell when i was younger bc of this weird formation on my ribcage which i desperately didnt want to be protruding (which happens when i sit straight); and second-a colleague of mine who doesnt like people staring at her chest so she just developed a mighty curved spine. one+one equals steve hunching all the time a)scoliosis and b) omg what if my bind isnt good enough i cant justify a little boob i need to H I D E

also butt pimples bc those suckers Happen and steve gets to have them by the virtue of being drawn by me

idk i just really felt like making this post bc sometimes its really hard to talk abt ur trans headcanons, cause……..there are so many pitfalls in depicting us that i end up overthinking everything and clamming up.  

of course this will resonate with some and 100% miss the mark with others so dont take this as ‘the face of trans men across the world’ cause its not, its just one case in the beautiful plethora of trans peeps <3

‘The Ghetto Tarot’ - Haitian artist group, Atis Rezistans, re-creates the classic tarot deck into scenes, people and locations from their native Haiti. 



‘revolution is an act of love’ getting coded as meek and mild, as turn-the-other-cheek where that’s read as docile rather than where it’s read as the righteous roiling precept for agency and the lesson in shaming the oppressor that it is, makes me both sad and angry

the love that fuels the revolution is the humanism that demands we actively stand up for each other; it’s not polite (kind, but not polite), and moreover it’s not insipid or bloodless

it’s acknowledging both our shared humanity and that we live in a world of systemic privilege and oppression - and then acting on that acknowledgement

there’s no call to be conciliatory to everyone profiting off an attempt at our degradation; instead there’s a call to arm ourselves and each other in and with the love that knows that the world we’re living in is a product of systems of oppression, and that our humanity calls us to tear them down

It’s St. Mark’s Eve, so here, have a snippet from the short story going in the U.S. Raven King paperback

Slavic mythology: (plural: rusalki or rusalky) a female ghost, water nymph, succubus, or mermaid-like demon that dwelt in a waterway. According to most traditions, the rusalki were fish-women, who lived at the bottom of rivers. In the middle of the night, they would walk out to the bank and dance in meadows. If they saw handsome men, they would fascinate them with songs and dancing, mesmerise them, then lead them away to the river floor to their death.

[Anna Vinogradova - Mermaid]

Setting hard limits for myself regarding next year but also planning to do a lot of exciting things and also listening to James Vincent McMorrow and life is just generally pretty ok right now.

1pm saturday afternoon: still in my pajamas, on my 4th cup of coffee, deep in thought about generic subversion, censorship, and post-colonialism in 2000 animated gay romance “the road to el dorado”

I do not….want to do school work rn…
