but @irishtatler still saw fit to include a photo of ppl wearing my merch in print? So why not give a voice?
And the elitist people who can get pregnant in your organisation? Lest you misremember, that's built on the time labour and money of the 'inconvenient' campaigners.
(because my starting scale of investment and connections available was a very exact zero (0).)
but I Made A Difference here. Even if I stopped existing today
and while I'm still here, I'm not gonna let them get away with silencing diverse voices outside of the purely democratic sphere too. So

(This person is a leftist heartthrob of university life and the doublethink entrenched in their soul when they post catchy 'anti-racist' commie one-liners is astounding, but sure look.)
From sweatshop manufactured jumpers, to using POC activists to run groundwork without giving them organisational credit, to working with publications like @irishtatler who are so willingly myopic in their glorifying gaze.
I need to go back now and try to make sure after picking up my meds I can still eat food next week, cos wtf is savings when you give away more money in 10 months than you've ever had to your name, for
only to literally fund PR jobs, manufacturing of campaign materials, shoulder rubbing events and eventual standing on the Dublin Castle podium, and publication of these incredibly sanitised voices in @irishtatler and the world over?

if after our discussions this week I feel treated as an equal with other paid contributors , and that it won't be one off representation.
Creating a more diverse society shouldn't hinge only upon whether you're doing it for profit, @TEDxTCD.
(also oh my god it's gone from white women calling us 'girls fighting with women'.
