I went to an open mic tonight and when I walked in I saw these two guys at a little table up the back near the toilets who seemed like they were meeting for the first time. It was a middle aged clean cut asian guy in a business shirt, and a really tall beefy white guy with long hair and a beard who looked like he was in his early twenties, and they were talking about their favourite footy teams like “oh I follow Richmond” “oh me too!” and getting to know each other and I thought “grindr seems cool” and kept walking.
About an hour and a half later the open mic’s finished and I came back downstairs and these two guys were still sitting there. Except now they had a laptop on the table and were watching what was unmistakably a ufo documentary, complete with zoomed in shots on grainy black and white photos of ufos over old castles, and one of the guys had a book next to him called The Secret Revolution Of Truth. So either these guys have met online and decided to meet at the back of this bar to share some top secret information that the illuminati doesn’t want them to know, or one of them is having the world’s absolute best grindr date.

Attanya: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because I love science fiction and fantasy books, but I’m tired of authors treating dragons and robots and magic as more plausible than black and brown characters

Jennifer: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because… when I was 13 a white girl told me it was selfishthat all of the protagonists in my stories were Latina because she “just can’t relate to nonwhite characters.” She made me feel guilty for writing about people like me. 

Aiesha: #WeNeedDiverseBooks because…Black Girls are more than sidekicks or “sassy, ghetto friend”

the LGBTQA resource center made a lil typo, i fixed it
*rolls eyes into oblivion*

And DONT erase ally either!

no just erase the ally
erase all the ally
being an ally is not a sexual orientation or a way of life that is discriminated against
so just erase the ally

Being an ally is like being a parent at a sporting event. Like yes great, you know those people on the field and you care about them but you are not playing the game you are not the one who is going to get hurt you have no stakes you personally do not ‘win’ anything so changing the A to ally is like a parent running out onto a field after a big game, ripping the trophy away from the child and being like:
LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME! I WON! I WON THE GAME! ME IT WAS ALL ME YOU GUYS COULDN’T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT ME!!!!!!
and that is just plain silly.


Don’t forget allies but don’t include them in the acronym
