They’ll talk about diversity and anti-racism, but will interpret people pointing out whiteness and straightness as an insult rather than a fact. They’ll see it as an attack, because they’re used to comfy invisibility-as-default. They’ll praise “colorblindness” as though it’s something to aspire to. “Colorblindness” as an ideal has been criticized at length by many, many smart people—let’s listen. Don’t strive to make the marginalized invisible; strive to make the privileged visible.

It’ll make people uncomfortable. Trust me. They’ll live. The least the privileged can do is be aware of it.

Notice. Again and again and again, until it drives you to frustration because it’s everywhere. Until it drives others to frustration because they’re starting to notice, too, and now they can’t stop either.

Do not allow the barrage of majority narratives to pass unremarked upon.

Do not let the privileged be the default.

Notice.

The notes make this really depressing as a guy reading this :(

I think I was about 11 maybe 12. Me and my mum…

When I was 10(!!!) I was a bit chubby and my mother took me to a paediatrician who put me on a very strict diet AND gave me slimming pills. TEN. I WAS TEN.

Here it is, for the first time anywhere: The BEAAUUUUTIFUL cover design for Nova Ren Suma’s new YA novel The Walls Around Us!
It’s a ghostly story of suspense involving a young dancer and a girls’ juvenile detention center—just think of it as “Orange Is the New Black Swan.” We can’t wait!

SO PRETTY!
