Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told Madonna, one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to go and f*** herself, the local media are reporting exclusively.
“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.
In further discussions with journalists from the media, the kid stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”
“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.
The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.
“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.
THIS IS THE RAWEST 15 YEAR OLD ALIVE
If I could have salsa magically appear at every meal I would probably eat more and regularly.
Work’s going okay, I’m working half days until Friday, which isn’t too good on my check for next week but it’ll be something.
With a new job and the stress of the situation regarding my nephew, my dandruff has come back full swing, so I’m trying to control it with tea tree oil mixed into my organix coconut milk shampoo. I was using the conditioner as well, but it wasn’t working well with keeping my scalp moisturized, so I’m using something called hairtrition 3 minute deep moisture treatment, and I see the improvement fairly soon. I need something to treat my dandruff tho, not a temporary fix. Bleh.
There hasn’t been much noise from anyone that was giving us a hard time. My parents are pushing to get the paperwork regarding permanent placement done. My dad had two drug convictions and a domestic violence charge in 1998, and though they’ve been expunged (?), they’re worried that will jeopardize our goal of getting the baby. They’re trying to get along but they’re really stressed out so they argue here and there when it gets to be too much. I talk to them about relaxing and taking it one step at a time and they talk it out later as well, so I’m not all that worried about them.
Its been two months since the baby was taken, I’m forgetting what he looks like :/ if my sister had just been a responsible mother two years ago, none of this would be happening.
Body positivity catches trans women coming and going. It posits a cis standard of beauty and then makes us feel bad for feeling bad about it.
That’s why we need more trans (body) positivity, and make it as visible as possible. Beauty is relative to our identity (as it is for everyone) and we should never forget that.
do not let anyone make you feel like shit for putting yourself first
you are the only person that is guaranteed to be with you throughout your whole life so you might as well have a loving relationship with yourself
I feel better today, brian’s and ides’ replies helped a lot, thank you guys.
I talked to my boyfriend about my eating issues so were working to communicate better when it comes to me eating regularly.
In the meantime I enjoyed my lunch and relaxed myself to not worry because food is a sustenance and I need that to make it through work.
Btw I got paid today for last week. its not too bad for four days of work. I’ve got three more hours until I can go deposit my check and sleep the rest of the day.
so i didn’t get in this year for fanex - apparently they’re trying to get more of a variety of artists in so a lot of people who sell prints were left out. i was really counting on that money to pay for rent/school come fall and would very much so appreciate it if i could share a table with someone. i can pay for my half and bring you snacks and coffee and stuff and be nice company! send me an ask if anyone would be willing <3
