We’d avoid a lot of annoying f***ery if it was understood that we are at the center of our own experience without the need of / desire for the white male gaze to validate us We’re reading, writing & publishing even if that ‘mainstream’ isn’t paying attention. For us. By us. 🤦🏿‍♀️🙄 https://t.co/LqUdrLwQEZ
