Doubt — Kele Okereke

it’s a slow burn but it’s so worth it. especially good music for being in transit, or being alone late at night and feeling strange

More makeup screwing around. Eyeliner is great on lips in photos but is even more fleeting than lipstick when worn for longer than a snapshot.

i was never into kink memes, why are they so bad

because people get real nasty when they don’t want to hear that they’re getting off on something that harms other people

there was a point where i was convinced that if i, as someone who strove for responsibility and accessibility, took the initiative and started a kink meme, i could make it into something less hurtful and more positive and community-building. but then when i actually did try, any initiative i took was fought and ridiculed, and those who agreed with me, if they existed, could not or would not come to my defense. my co-mods, whom i invited in to help when the work became too much for me, were also unprepared or unwilling to stand up for my policies. eventually, i could not cope with it anymore.

i still wish there were more spaces with the kink meme format that were safer for everyone who wanted to participate, but i realise what kind of strength and sacrifice that requires, and i don’t trust people who would not be taxed by that kind of response to do the right thing anyway.

"Always believe people about abuse" sounds like a good rule but it isn’t.

It is really, really important to remember that abusers often accuse their victims of abuse.

OH MY GOD THEY ARE FANTASTIC THANK YOU
