Hater-Christians and their dismissal of gay issues

@Miranda. So what are saying is that I must 'get a more important cause' that you will determine because you haven't spoken out (like a true complicit hater-Christian), the very people I am pleading with you to change the minds of? 

I would hold the broader community responsible for the failure of Ubuntu to prevent the murder of homosexuals of I were Black. But if I say that - will I be fired? Called a racist? Silenced with a dismissive wave of a hand. No. You've done that before. To me. Irony lives here. 

If you draw a parallel with apartheid, I would be the White person pleading among my 'Friends' for my friends to recognize that Black people have human rights, that they should have the same rights as me. 

Just like that, I am asking you to plead among your friends for them not to discriminate against homosexuals and to stop the human rights abuses against homosexuals. You haven't done that, so really, you are much like the hater-White apartheid perpetrator, justifying what he is doing by saying "Blacks will never come right, White people's minds can't be changed." So, by your logic all Whites are racist. So you are calling me a racist. I am not demonizing Christians, I am calling them out on their bullshit. They have incited a genocide. Lesbian women are being tortured and dismembered in our country. Have you tried to stop that?

I have hope, I believe in a change of heart and mind. If anywhere, that change can happen among a community whose leader stands for Love. Do you stand with your leader? Will you make a status calling your Christian friends to Love? 'Educate' them.

Facebook behaving badly

So I signed Avaaz's petition to ask Facebook to clean up their act or else I will delete. Wryly. I do believe that instead of saying, "But you Dumb Fucks (that's what Zuckerberg calls us, you can check, those are the actual words) signed our terms and conditions" that the focus shouldn't fall on the victim. "You wanted to get raped, you came to the bar." The onus, the responsibility lies on the powerful to behave better. There's never an onus to behave with honor, with respect, with humanity.

#RapeCulture

Anyway, I tried to get people to leave and come with me to GooglePlus. "But my friends aren't there." I ran a campaign to tell people that I'm not connecting apps to Facebook because the apps demand access to my friends' accounts. My friends still didn't come to GooglePlus.

The irony is I don't care about the data thing. Have my data. When I do something they don't like - be a loud fat ugly hairy man-hating dyke…

Poem: I have biracial hair by Zora Howard

See the performance on YouTube

I have bi-racial hair
Pantene Pro-V waves on the top
Easy to style, comb, rock-
Until-I encounter my naps,
I’m not talking about those-cute detangle with the spray naps.
I’m talking about those, slave naps, like,
No comb, brush, or man can handle the kind of naps I got- like,
No way you are touching my hair-naps like
Back 10 feet up, or we can dance naps
Those naps like-
DAMN!
I have bi-racial hair,
Those smooth and silk rafts hanging all through my mane,
Until you get to the back, and encounter the jungle, in which you can find Tarzan and Jane.
In the front you forget and relax in the pleasure,
Until you get to the back and remember pain
Baby hair slicked back with that good 4 dollar pomade,
That goes with roots and tangles,
Soaked with that same olive oil; mixed with that spaghetti sauce momade.
I have bi-racial hair,
Combs run freely through my fine breezy, just to the part, the most you can make,
Until it gets to the back and
Breaks.
I have bi-raci…

Sexual assault

If sexual assault always affects trust, then #AllWomen are walking around with PTSD and trust issues. I for one don't let THE MANY MANY TIMES I have been sexually assaulted and various other crimes (I do live in South Africa) be a guiding factor of my life. I have consciously chosen to trust on purpose. However, only insane people close their eyes while trusting. I don't shy away from trusting, I just make sure that I let people tell me who they are, and then I LISTEN and respond. 
You would be horrified, but I am not. I am NORMALIZED to this level of violence. It's natural. More sheltered people in my country have no clue what it's like to be a fully-engaged and person-on-the-street. You get used to it. Like children in war. It's the thing happening now and then that adds an anomalous punctuation to your life. You can't spend every day crying. The country is economically stuffed so you have to get on with making money, to eat. It makes you more articulate about…
