FUCK YEAH FAT DYKES

Fuck Yeah Fat Dykes is a space showcasing anything and everything that affirms, celebrates and inspires my queerness, fatness, and dykery. Dyke is not a gendered term nor is this a gendered site. The affirmation of my body is always in tandem to the affirmation of my Puertorriqueñidad.

You must learn her.

You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to.

You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept.

And, this is how you keep her.

People hate her [Yoko Ono], they really do. Did you know that to ‘Yoko someone’ is a verb in America? It is something that boys say if they’re hanging out with you too much and they’re going to school or they have a band. It’s almost a myth that’s used to suppress women. Y’know, ‘You’re gonna Yoko me. You’re gonna destroy me.’ And this woman put up with racial inequality from Fleet Street, she put up with being accused of breaking up the best band in the world [The Beatles], she put up with people’s idea that she castrated this man and then, worst of all, she had her best friend, her husband, the person she lived for, die in her arms in front of a fortress that she’d hidden herself in for twenty years. And I just feel that the world media should apologize to her because she handled it with so much dignity.

On being fat and femme and ugly and unloveable

queerandpresentdanger:

Falling in love is dangerous for brown boys, because under white supremacy we are not people to love. Falling in love is dangerous for brown boys because people don’t fall in love with brown boys. Falling in love is dangerous for brown boys until we can learn to love ourselves. How do I decolonize…
