I'm just a young mamichula trying to help overthrow this sexist, misogynist, oppressive, racist as patriarchy we call society. Just trying to get past "Da Struggle" and fight THE SYSTEM that created it.

Ramelcy es mi nombre y no tengo apodo. And just because i love this quote: "I am womon. Whole. Complete. Capable of falling apart, just to come together, improved and better without you."

This is also just a peek into a fly playa’s life so forreal, get to know me. I keep it a hunnet. WonnFitttee. 24/7. 365 days. Trill recognize Trill. lmao, I learned a long time ago not to take everything so seriously. & Don't hesitate to say hola or drop a question & apparently my advice is sought after so you're free to do the same cus I'm officially your life guru, homie.

(p.s. subscribe to my youtube "brwnfemproductions" )!

 

indavidual:

This was weird and hard to put on the internet. Opening up and being so vulnerable on camera is definitely out of my comfort zone, but it was very necessary. It’s been a long and hard road with so many ups and downs but I’m here, happier than I can ever remember being. All of the stuff I’ve been through has made me stronger. I want to give a big thank you to Jayleen and Logan, the first people I came out to. MY people. My niece and my nephew who have turned into my very best friends. Thank you for always standing by me and accepting every part of me. You guys made it so easy to open up and just be me. I love you with everything I am and I’m so grateful to have you in my life. I also want to thank my mom and 2 brothers Danny and Elias for surprising me so much with all the love and support I received from you guys. I was so nervous and anxious to come out to you guys especially and I was met with open arms. Thank you to Jose for directing, shooting, and editing this video and making it more than what I even thought I wanted. Thank you to Claudia for being there during the shoot and easing my nerves. Last but not least, I want to thank YOU for watching. I hope this inspires you to share your truth. If you take anything from this video, let it be that you’ll start putting more of an effort to understand and be kind to one another.  

If you are questioning your sexuality or struggling with it or you just need someone to talk to about it there are resources out there, such as “The Trevor Project.” Know that everyone’s experience is unique and don’t feel pressured to come out. Wait till you feel safe and ready, that’s the most important thing.

tbh i’m not really feeling the “imagine that she were your mother/sister/daughter” approach to teaching men how to respect women because women have value and dignity as human beings completely independent of some kinship to a man. and lets not act like a whole array of misogyny abuse and disrespect doesn’t occur within familial relationships so…

how do you even describe to a prof. or administrator that sometimes you feel so heavy, so unmotivated, so deep in a hole, you can’t even get out of bed?

so there’s this WoC in my class yr who’s very adamant about multicultural issues on campus & i’m also very outspoken and critical about my school an an institution and how it deals with issues of race…but what’s cray is how we’re lowkey pitted against each other. like she’s often painted as the reasonable one that white people can swallow while people think i’m some militant black anti-christ + anti-all-white-people.

lol and i do think that she does accommodate a white audience or a privileged audience & i do not. but i think me n’ her should sit down and have a chat cus’ i’m tired of sharing a space with someone who i’m told is the opposite of me (and dislikes me cus i’m too radical or aggressive)
