The evangelical MO is negging. Evangelicals worship a predatory “pickup artist” in the sky. Read @gloriousbeth’s post on liking yourself after evangelicalism, and if you’ve been affected by any fundamentalism, check out my six anti-proselytizing principles that affirm autonomy.
I feel this post by @gloriousbeth. The Christianity I grew up with made me hate myself. It took over a decade of deconstruction for me to understand that not only is it okay, but even necessary, for us to love ourselves.

If you’ve never been there, it’s hard to explain, but the idea that loving ourselves was necessary to truly love anyone else simply did not compute. I thought loving myself would be a sin. “All our good deeds are as filthy rags.” “He must become greater; I must become less.”

People ask what I do for fun, since I'm always campaigning for so many causes. The answer never changes. I dedicate time to empowering youth in my community. Biologically I have no kids, so these students are priceless to me.

Lets all admit superbowl ads are actually trash, ok?
Why are these medieval people in this beer ad talking about who they would have to eat when they have a giant barrel of corn syrup that could probably sustain them for like a decade?

MAKES NO SENSE.
They're making a Fast and Furious movie without Vin Diesel?? this is 100% B.S.

Life ‘seemed’ easier when I was with my white people.

Inequitable treatment continued.🙈🙉🙊
Homelessness continued.🙈🙉🙊
Black people were being brutalized & killed by the State.
Injustice continued.🙈🙉🙊
Mediocrity maintained the status quo.🤷🏼‍♂️🤷🏼‍♀️
Wilful oblivion
White privilege allows wilful oblivion.

I never understood this wilful oblivion when I was with my white people.

My white people were my family, including literal actual family.

I questioned, “Was it this wilful oblivion that allowed:

👉🏿 over 400 years of slavery
👉🏿116 yrs of residential schools
👉🏿48 yrs of apartheid
👉🏿35 yrs of the Chinese Head Tax
👉🏿5 years of Auschwitz
👉🏿our current gov’t
👉🏿indifference”

Dear white sisters & brothers in #TORONTO,

I’m asking you a question that may make you uncomfortable, that may make you recoil, that may make you hide, &/or that may make you retaliate in various ways.

You are the majority of people who vote.
Your vote has impacted our lives.
Yes white sisters & brothers, your. Your vote has impacted our lives.

This thread is not about making you feel guilty. Know that I write this with love to you because I love you & want better for our City. In order for our City to thrive we must work towards certain goals together.
