Honestly.. When PoC get to an age where they are able to deeply realize and internalize how intensely and directly racism affects them, as well as able to recognize the little racial microaggressions against them, it truly IS a traumatic experience. Its draining and depressing and painful and scarring. It can very easily make you lose the will to do anything or dream anything. And that is something that whites will never experience, thus never understand how deep this goes.

I’ve been there.
And our school has a uniform, I was wearing the leggings UNDER my winter skirt so you can’t even use that dumb ‘but it distracts the boys’ excuse. I was wearing more clothes than I was supposed to because Victorian winters are fucking COLD
Young girls taking action against sexist dress codes are my favourite thing.
yessss im fucking tired of school systems dismissing children from class and school to avoid drama and controversy
