Now try and tell me women are too weak to serve on the front lines
It’s not about being physically weak.
What the hell does that even mean
Exactly what it says?
Right. Women are mentally weak. All the time. Every woman. OK.
Women are weak, mentally and physically, but men refuse to wash themselves unless their soap specifically says it’s ‘For Men’…….. Hrrrrrrrmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

7 devastating realities facing Black domestic violence victims in America
2. For many women, domestic abuse leads to death.
This is notably true for black women, who comprised 8% of the U.S. population but 22% of intimate partner homicide victims and 29% of all female victims of intimate partner homicide in 2005.
Needless to say, these figures are remarkably disproportionate. Janay Palmer is not alone in her circumstances.

Lucy Hicks Anderson was a pioneer in the fight for marriage equality. She spent nearly sixty years living as a woman, doing domestic work, and working as a madam. During the last decade of her life, she made history by fighting for the legal right to be herself with the man she loved.
After marrying her second husband, soldier Reuben Anderson, in Oxnard, California, in 1944, local authorities discovered that she was assigned male at birth. The couple was charged with perjury for marrying despite their both being legally male, resulting in ten years of probation. Standing up to the charges against her, Anderson said, “I defy any doctor in the world to prove that I am not a woman. I have lived, dressed, acted just what I am, a woman.” Years later, Anderson and her husband were charged again, this time with fraud after she received federal money reserved for military spouses. Both went to prison and were banned from Oxnard upon their release.
Lucy Hicks Anderson spent the remainder of her life in Los Angeles until her death in 1954, at age 68, leaving behind a legacy of authenticity and determination in the face of unjust laws.

UK Black Pride was amazing!
This year it was held on the same day as London LGBT pride. Bi’s of Colour shared a stall with PACE, who were very generous. Black Pride was held in Golden Square, in central London. At first I thought the space was too small but in fact it was an intimate, wonderful location. It was the first LGBT event I’ve been to in years when I didn’t experience a single bit of biphobia or racism. Unfortunately, this is such a rarity on the LGBT scene.
Bi’s of Colour were joined by many Queer and Trans people of colour, grass-roots activists, including a queer, trans boi band group! It was a wonderful day, with great weather, brilliant music and a relaxed atmosphere. Three cheers for UK Black Pride!
