this tree is a great artist.
Too often trans and queer women of color survive violence in their homes and on the streets only to have the police, courts and prison-industrial complex come after them for having the audacity to survive in a world where, as Audre Lorde said in her poem “A Litany For Survival,” they “were never meant to survive.

someone else who hates cantaloupe finally.
Omg you too yes this pleases me.
It’s so bad and it’s flavor leeches out onto all the different god fruits and infects them with it’s nastiness.
The rest of these fruits are so good though, I can even eat raw lemon.
CANTELOUPE IS DELICIOUS
IT’S PINEAPPLE THAT BEFOULS OTHER FRUIT
I’m allergic to pineapple and don’t actually remember what it tastes like.
Cantaloupe tastes of disappointment, mediocrity, and broken dreams.
FUCK YOU, CANTALOUPE. “HONEY DEW” SOUNDED LIKE MAGIC MY WHOLE CHILDHOOD, AND IT ONLY TASTED OF DESPAIR.
This makes my eyes happy and my belly hungry.
as a first year:
as a senior:
not our choosing. just the world we came to. fighting
like animals leashed in a pen. maimed if we don’t
win. killed if we don’t fight. so we been
perfecting/fighting to win
the whole of our time here. and though violence is
not our first nature sometimes
violence boils the blood/explodes in the veins.
shows up unexpected
and just claims a nigga.

pinkie pie- white. bottom heavy,fairly tall, TONS of hair. just jolly and bouncy and cute.
rainbow dash- african american. short, sleek, aerodynamic. wants to be a pilot, but for now kicks ass on rollerblades. her hair is a mohawk that emulates her mane
applejack- white. ‘sturdy’ is what I was going for, not sure if I succeeded. farmer’s tan and tons of freckles.
twilight sparkle- indian. scrawny, angular, petite. super symmetrical, has a strong, somewhat masculine jawline.
fluttershy- white, no-op mtf. moved to ponyville to get a new start for herself. found rainbow dash along the way, who is the only one who knows she’s mtf. knows her friends won’t care but it’s still hard telling people. very tall, awkward, wears ill-fitting jumpers and oversized skirts.
rarity- asian, short, plus-sized. big inspiration for her was miss piggy. got sick of not being able to find clothes her size so she started her own fashion line of high end clothes for plus sized ladies.
I just uncontrollably flapped my hands in excitement seeing this
