Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.
I’ma forgive, I won’t forget, but I’ma dead the issue.

Ok, friends. Here’s the deal! After much encouragement from you all to start some sort of crowd funding for my project, I decided to set up a FoodStart. It’ll take up to 24 hours for my listing to actually be listed on the site, however, I do have a link available to my FoodStart page:
You are under absolutely NO obligation to donate! This is just something I’ve wanted to do for a really long time now. For the sake of keeping this post short and sweet, I won’t go into all the details completely - those are all viewable on my FoodStart page.
If you’ve been following me, you know that I’m a vegan pastry chef. I dedicate all of my spare time to creating new dishes, and I believe from the bottom of my heart that I have all the tools to create a successful business. The only thing lacking is the funds. Everything else is outlined and ready to go.
If you’re able, please help pass this message along. Thanks for your time!

“And then a thought came into my brain that wasn’t like the other thoughts. It was closer to me, and louder. I didn’t know where it came from, or what it meant, or if I loved it or hated it. It opened up like a fist, or a flower.”

Bev update: Bev is being boarded and we’re still looking for a stable foster home. At the boarding facility/doggie daycare Bev has made friends with everyone. Bev plays with the other dogs almost all day long and gets baths 3x a week along with an oral medicine to continue fighting their skin condition. Beverly’s hair is starting to grow back and there is the most adorable stubble everywhere. The only issues Beverly is demonstrating are jealousy and separation anxiety, which certainly make sense seeing as Bev was abandoned in a parking lot just over a month ago now.
If you’d like to help Bev and know of a stable and appropriate foster home in the chicago land area please send me a message. If you’d like to donate to the vet and boarding costs for Bev there is a donate button on my page. Any and all support is appreciate more than I can convey.
