Two-Spirit Is Not For White People - It Is Appropriation
Posted before, will again.
So fucking important.
Title (diagonally across full page): 2SPIRIT IS NOT FOR WHITE PPL
Left side of page:
Two spirit ≠
- both a masculine and a feminine spirit
- the same as bigender
Two spirit =
- indigenous ppl who don’t fit into the colonialist binaries of gender and sexuality
Two Spirit is a term invented by First Nations people in 1990 who felt like “LGBTQ” didn’t fit their experience as indigenous people.
It is meant to recognise the continuity of our traditional roles in our communities.
When non-Natives call themselves Two Spirit, IT IS APPROPRIATION
Right side of page:
1 in 3 Native women will be raped in her lifetime (90% by non-native men)
over 50% of Native trans people have attempted suicide
STOP COLONIAL VIOLENCE!

Marauders Appreciation Week [2/7] - One Death Eater
To the Dark Lord,
I know I will be dead long before you read this but I want you to know that it was I who discovered your secret. I have stolen the real Horcrux and intend to destroy it as soon as I can. I face death in the hope that when you meet your match you will be mortal once more.
