right now i see tons of awesome creative and exciting work from WOC in all artistic mediums with feminist/womanist motifs while also discussing how class/race/gender indentity intersect in their work and it’s fucking exciting so like lets stop waxing poetic about past movements that were generally exclusionary and lets take about the present/future wave of WOC of all races/classes etc making good fucking art
how blessed are we to live in this time!!! and to have a resource as far-reaching and accessible (to most, obv i’m not trying to make any extreme statements) as the internet to share and spread our art and our words? blessings! my mother always says that i am so lucky to be alive and thriving r i g h t n o w
RIGHT!! it’s truly amazing from a click of a button i can see and hear and watch all this art from WOC around the world it’s truly a great time 2 be alive and I can’t wait for what the future holds
yesss i’m so happy and lucky the internet is such an accessible resource for me. i’ve been able to find so many amazingly talented feminist/womanist artists and writers who embody the huge importance of narrative work in art. i’m so excited to watch these artists grow and continue to challenge exclusionary visions that are so rampant in the art world. when art reflects the state of our world—as in, the spaces WOC occupy—it is so fucking important and necessary, this is history and we are making it
like riot grrl as a scene wasn’t like woopsie daisy can’t believe no WOC wanted to sign up and join us there was legitimate hostility towards WOC during that movement that’s been documented as well as the inability for many riot grrls to understand intersections of oppression and their own role in upholding it
i mean sonically and aesthetically you can like the riot grrl movement but lets not pretend like there wasn’t huge and glaring flaws about it like every other feminist wave or scene that was primarily white women
right! ppl dont get it when i say that the lack of women of colour is always, ALWAYS, a concious thing and never an accident/coincident. stay woke.
