Big boneded

It is the work of capitalism
And white supremacy
That convinces us our bodies are only good if they are lean
And working

Machines cannot function without the broken backs
And torn muscles of able bodies
And pillaging of different ones

Ladders cannot be built on soft flesh
And hands whose fingers are more adept at caressing and crocheting
Cannot be used to fabricate weapons of mass destruction
Nor break apart the bones of babies

Systems would crumble, sinking into
Your weight
And every inch of forbidden cellulite
If your body was written into the fabric of society
Any differently

Revolution lies in the areas of you
Forced to hide

Never acquiesce to the rapacious needs of this hellhole
Your bones are stronger in the end

Sunny Scape is a safe space for Black women and queer folks. I am committed to eradicating intersecting systems of oppression that overwhelmingly affect people like myself, and doing so in a way that centers the most marginalized of us. That means that I am an activist on behalf of Black and brown queer and trans folks, children, sex workers, disabled folks, people of low socioeconomic status, currently and formerly imprisoned people, and countless others who are pushed to the back burners and relegated to second-class citizenship. This blog and everything within it is absolutely inseparable from the liberation efforts of all the aforementioned groups of people.
