i wish people would treat black women better so they weren't forced out of these spaces

we need them here

not because we should expect their work (although actually we do too often depend upon it, which we should not)

but because without everyone, this is not the revolution it should be, and a revolution that does not liberate black women is worthless

I came to the roof for quiet and there's a yipping dog


Thinking about using an app like scrivener since so much of what I do is research based.

Any other peeps round here use an app such as this for PhD writing?

The spot I wanted to go for happy is closed til 5 so I gotta hunker down at hellbucks until then but new notebook!

Ngl I'm waiting for @D_Blakely to tell us more about their research

And maybe tips on PhD working

Typing my thesis on a typewriter would be a project

and also I'd channel the experience of being like my mom in the 70's typing out her dissertation

"Critical race theory acknowledges the inextricable layers of racialized subordination based on gender, class, immigration status, surname, phenotype,accent and sexuality (Crenshaw, 1989, 1993; Valdes et al., 2002)"

Finally getting to the motion of writing Latina feminist phenomenology chapter, and re-engaging with *new mestiza* as a concept.

patting myself on the back for having been well into my 30s by the time I read this. because by this point i had already developed my own concept;

write yourself onto the page

Black feminists: intersectionality. the specificity of Black women's experience, of Black lesbian experience. the blurry borders between Black lesbians' experience of race, class, gender, and sexuality, because all of them are made concrete and specific by all the others

white people: intersectionality... is when everything is the same,

I'm not a journalist so I have zero knowledge about ethics in publishing or journalism yet here I am trying to pitch
