In social justice, there’s this absurd meme (that I’ve been guilty of myself) is that we are the “voice for the voiceless,” but that’s not right. The oppressed are not voiceless – they’re just not being listened to.
Wooo, I like this.
Perfect quote is perfect.
Gonna print this out and stick it on my mirror. Keep that shit in check.
Or that one is “GIVING” a voice to a marginalized person. Which is very problematic as well. Having a voice is different to not being heard.
And always remember that our ‘voices’ are not always spoken word, there are many ways to communicate and they should all be respected
I always assume that a good book is more intelligent than its author. It can say things that the writer is not aware of.
People who say that John Green writes unrealistically mature teenagers are the reason that actual teenagers are looked at as a joke and their feelings are dismissed as underdeveloped.
One of the most frequent responses I got in creative writing class was that my child/teen characters were too smart and didn’t sound like that.
My response is usually “My first words were ‘I’m pondering’, so…”
Well this was a fun way to get back in the scheming game.
