the way I see it, “black pride” (or any sort of “minority” pride movement) means “I am proud of who I am DESPITE those who have told me and my people that whiteness is superior” while “white pride” means “I am proud of who I am BECAUSE whiteness is superior” and that’s why it’s ok to say one but not the other
I am a man. I could say this has nothing to do with me. Except I have two daughters and I have a mother who was forced to illegally have an abortion in her state where abortion was illegal when she was a very young woman. It cost $600 cash. It was a traumatizing thing for her. It was shameful and sleazy and demeaning. When I heard the story I was aghast by the lowliness of a society that would make a woman do that. I could not understand its lack of humanity; today is no different.
Reproductive justice is a fight for all of us, and for queer, trans and ciswomen and those who love us, as we fight for *sexual freedom and liberation, and bodily autonomy.* This is a battle that women of color, queer and straight alike, have fought now for too, too long. And sometimes, it’s nice to have conscious partners in that struggle, speaking across identity boundaries and axes of privilege.
