Whitecismaledudeprivvy stares and whispers and gestures and vibes and aggression. Not into it.I’m just tryn to listen to live music and do work in a nice space. Are you lookin at my me or the James Baldwin books on my table or the masks you apply to me or what what what.
met an awesomeeee person during work today. we talked for a long time about poc/mixed/api/aapi/white spaces, privilege, growing up experiences, having mixed kids/how they see their kid experience being mixed in this context, williamsburg/colonial ventures, etc.
figuring out how to talk to people in a way that seems fulfilling, honest, truthful, and good in spaces with harmful cultures. <3
It’s taken months
To find the stones, pebbles, branches
I’ve thrown into the water
Hoping that each one would remain without sinking below the
with raw finger tips into
Tenderly avoiding severing roots and segmenting bodies of earthworms
The smoke still hangs in the air
with sweet scents of honeysuckle and rain.
Many of the support beams and crossbars,
Nuts and bolts are still visible.
Structureless frame remaining.
The embers are not yet ashes.
They smolder still, threatening to ignite any leaf or debris that grazes their innards.
Temperamental flare ups.
I feel confident that
I can make
a solid path
across the water with the earth I’ve thrown.
Piled upon itself .
Piled upon my self.
This is not a replacement
This is not a bridge.
I no longer wish to circumvent the water
Getting my shoes wet,
the potential of slipping, tumbling in, getting cut bruised —swept away by the current .
I was too far above
the flowing waters before to see the tadpoles
budding legs above their tails.
looked all one
and I saw more of the trees in its surface
than any of what was
within and below.
This is kind of complicated to explain, so I shall try my best.
It’s easiest to do this on Firefox or Safari- for Safari, you’ll need to turn the developer’s option on (by going to preferences, then advanced options, then checking the box at the bottom). For Firefox, you need to download firebug.
Go on to ‘Edit my Profile’ and right-click on the gender field, and select ‘Inspect Element’.
A new window will open with a bunch of coding. Right-click on the line that is highlighted, and select ‘Edit as html’.
I had female selected on my facebook, so I then copied the ‘<option value=”2”>Male</option>’ section of the code, and pasted it straight after itself.
In this new pasted section, change the ‘2’ to a ‘0’, and change ‘Male’ to whatever you want (it doesn’t matter what you change it to because it will just come up as Select Gender’).
After this, exit the Inspect Element window, select this new gender field, and save the profile changes. It should come up with ‘Select gender’, and facebook will use they/their etc as pronouns.
Any problems, don’t hesitate to ask.
I took great advantage in this, very happy!
just did this on facebook. downloaded safari for free from the mac website and it was pretty simple. hope this helps
didn’t work for me but hopefully it does for other folx. tried firefox, chrome, and mozilla… there are slight differences for each of those, google searching for the specific browser brings up the nuances.
