fetishtongue: Love your blog I wish your aunt asked your thoughts about Ferguson instead of yelling at you for it.

Thanks :). Yeah I wish she would have too. Close mindedness is a real bummer.

Sometimes fighting for rights ruins relationships.

I had a weird experience this morning that I’m still trying to process. I was at work getting started on a project when I got a text from my aunt that read “you’re dad would be so disappointed in you!” This was incredibly jarring and brought up so many emotions so quickly. (My dad has been dead for 5 years now. Touchy subject.) This aunt is generally awesome to me and to get this message out of nowhere was crazy. She was upset with me for going to Ferguson the night before to protest. In her eyes there is no cause to fight for and in her words “those people are dishonoring Mike Brown”. She later harassed my boyfriend on Facebook. This is but one occasion where I am incredibly glad I deleted that shit.

I did not respond in the best way and I realize that now. I basically told her to fuck off, explained to her how ignorant she was, and when it was clear that she was going to continue to harass me I chose to block her. I ended up crying most of the morning because I love this aunt and the thought of her being so awful to me and ruining our relationship is really upsetting. I don’t know how she thought it was ok to say something so awful to someone. IT IS NEVER OK TO TELL SOMEONE THAT THIER DEAD PARENT WOULD BE DISAPPOINTED IN THEM.

It became clear how incredibly biased the media she consumes is and it’s really scary. I’m going to another protest tomorrow. Anyone else who isn’t at the protests and wants to tell me all about the situation as they see it from their living room can fuck themselves.

I met some lovely people in Ferguson. They deserve justice and what’s happening there is totally unconstitutional.

I’m so beyond disgusted with what is happening in my city for so many reasons. The police brutality that has been allowed to take place for 5 days now is insanity. Why is this still happening? Why are police throwing tear gas into peoples yards? Why are they pulling people out of their cars to arrest them? And more importantly, why are so many people completely blind to what is happening. I keep seeing people say ‘well I don’t really know what’s going on, so I’m not going to get involved.’ Really?? You can’t see how fucked up this is? Or do you not care because it doesn’t affect you? I’ve had some friends tell me ‘I’ve never had any problem with cops before, they’ve always been really nice to me.’ Yeah, you are a white girl. It will likely always be easy for you. Maybe try for just a second to put yourself in someone else’s shoes to see how fucked up the system is. This problem is so much larger than people are seeing. 

I’m really saddened by the unwillingness by so many people I know, to stand up for civil rights, or even to attempt to care.
