“My work is about visibility. My work is about the fact that I’m a genderqueer person of color fat femme fag feminist and I don’t really know what to do with that identity in this world. It’s that thing where you grew up learning to hate every aspect of yourself and unlearning all that misery is really hard to do.It’s that thing where you kind of regret everything you’ve ever done because it’s so complicit with white hegemony.It’s that thing where you realize that your own attempts at passive aggressive manipulation and power don’t stand a chance against the structural forms of DOMINATION against your body. It’s that thing where the only way to cope with the reality of your situation is to pretend it doesn’t exist; because flippancy is a privilege you don’t own but you’re going to pretend you do anyway. ”  -Mark Aguhar

NB: as far as many of the people close to Mark are concerned, she used mainly she/her pronouns, so I deleted the text that was originally attached to this bc it was ‘they’ing her, which I didn’t initially notice, fuck that shit, sorry about reblogging it, have this glorious photo of her and quote minus the mispronouning instead
