"It is difficult for whites to comprehend how the major institutions in our society (as in others based on a history of racial colonialism) - the schools, the labor market, welfare, police, and the courts - consistently belittle and diminish the sense of personal worth and dignity of nonwhite people."
- Bob Blauner (via wretchedoftheearth)

“The only reason I’m putting myself out here and talking about anything is because there’s been so many trans* girls on Youtube or that I’ve read about that put themselves out there and made their knowledge available that I feel like I have to return the favor. You know, when I was 14 years old, if I was watching House of Style, watching a transsexual being interviewed and talking about that, then it would’ve completely changed my life, you know… I would’ve felt saved.”
