I am a white passing Latina in a field that is predominantly white and male. Because of this, I use my white passing privilege as much as I can... after all my momma gotta eat, but I feel rotten bc I am reinforcing shit that oppresses members of my community. Thoughts?
I’m a bit confused as to what you want us to say to you? It’s hard out here and people do what that have to…we understand that. but if you want us to assuage your guilt for basking in your privilege ????? I’m not finna do that.

Found this gem this morning on my run. Gotta bring a book back tomorrow. :-)
Seriously, Rugrats was not fucking around.
People don’t give Rugrats enough credit for how progressive it was. I mean think about it.
- Chuckie, for most of the series is raised by a single father
- Angelica’s mother was a high ranking corporate executive
- Phil and Lil’s mom was a feminist
- She also breastfed them (which the show actually depicted)
- Tommy is half-Jewish and the show actually explored this part of his heritage
Seriously, this show was fucking amazing!! They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore….
Also don’t forget that Chuckie had an interracial family after the second movie.
Writing Home with @ledavolli

The experience of living abroad has been a magical one for Brazil Instagrammer Leticia Davolli (@ledavolli), who has called Toronto home for the last five years. “All of a sudden, you see the world through the eyes of a foreigner,” she says. “You never belong to a single place again.”
Leticia strives to preserve her foreigner’s perspective on the city while still maintaining ties to her roots back home. “I try to maintain the perspective of a newcomer in Toronto by really exploring each corner, sidewalk and coffee shop through the lens of my phone. When I first moved to Toronto, I created the blog Para Minha Mãe, translating to “For My Mother,” as a way to share my experiences in Toronto with my mom. I wanted to share the cool parts of the city that were not mentioned in most city guides. After a while, the blog naturally developed a wider audience and people started writing in and asking me for city recommendations.”
Leticia is especially fascinated by Toronto’s independent café scene. “People gather there to find inspiration and connect with others,” she says. “My mother also loves coffee shops. Being in cafés is a way to reconnect with my essence and origins.”
