the pressure on first generation children of immigrants 

to prove that you are indeed proof that parents’ sacrifice was worth it

is something that many Americans will never understand

WHY YOU SHOULD GO WATCH WADJDA RIGHT NOW IMMIDIETLY
takes place in saudi arabia
all characters muslim
really, really well written. it’s essentially a slice-of-life comedy about a 10-year-old-girl trying to save up enough money to buy a bike, and the roadblocks she hits while doing so.
all the characters, most of which are women, are fleshed-out, enjoyable, and given their own seperate character arc. every single arc just hits it right on the head. it’s basically a cast of well-written, well-acted muslim characters.
first saudi arabian feature film to be directed by a woman
it’s funny. like, really fucking funny.
oh my god.
go watch wadjda.
here
here i even have a link you can watch it right now
there is literally no reason to watch this perfect fucking film right now
if you like well written comedies with a mostly-female, all-muslim, all person-of-color cast, just watch this ok
i’M NOT K IDDING SOMEONE WATCH WADJDA SO THEY CAN TALK ABOUT IT WITH ME

"She warned us against becoming a movement only for white middle class people, this was 41 years ago, and today, so much of the ways in which LGBT equality has played out has been about white middle class people."

To Be Vulnerable and Fearless: An Interview with Writer Warsan Shire | The Well&Often Reader

ragingsoundofcalm:

"I have travelled around and found my body making more sense elsewhere. But I have started to understand what it feels like to belong, so I look forward to exploring different countries and seeing how fully I can feel at home in a place, that at the end of the day, isn’t where I came from. Maybe home is somewhere I’m going and never have been before."

"The support is beautiful. Overwhelming. I am grateful. I never imagined that people would want to read what I write. I just wanted to write. I haven’t made sense of it, I don’t think it’s important that I do. As long as I can give anyone comfort, I will. And I understand that anonymity can allow people to be vulnerable. Not everyone is okay with living like an open wound. But the thing about open wounds is that, well, you aren’t ignoring it, your healing, the fresh air can get to it. It’s honest. You aren’t hiding who you are. You aren’t rotting. People can give you advice on how to heal without scarring badly."

"There isn’t just one person that is meant for you. There are people, who for a thousand different reasons will be right for you and a million more why they are wrong.
This idea that you have an effortlessly great partner is toxic.
You can be madly in love and despise things about your partner. You can be just what that person needs, for that portion of their life.
And it doesn’t matter.
Nothing is meant for, or destined to be. It’s work and it’s trial and error."
