On “Normalizing” the PoC Protagonist
It doesn’t have to be about her race. Not every story that includes PoC needs to be about their struggles as a _______. That’s where the concept of escapism comes in. As PoC we know we deal with some ish in real life. It doesn’t have to follow us in the books we grab to have an adventure or relax.
As long as you’re not writing “colorblind” in which you or your characters just ignore race (because one should be able to fully note someone’s race/skin/culture without pretending not to see it as if it’s a sin) nor claim it’s just “over” in the book.
Don’t wanna get into racism in your story? Simply don’t have your character(s) run into racist people, and you should be fine. Same goes with sexism, etc.
On another note, even if your story wasn’t about her struggle as a Woman of Color and merely included moments where yeah, her being a Black woman did affect her life, it still wouldn’t make her “defined” by her ethnicity. Lest being discriminated against left or right, a POC facing situations unique to them shouldn’t detract from the narrative nor in anyway take away the “normal” from the story.
We’re People of Color.
We deal with a brand of judgement, profiling and discrimination that Non-PoC do not. That’s normal for us. And yet we go on about our lives, eating and laughing and sleeping. No matter what we might face, we’re not defined by our color. We’re enhanced by it.
If you have dysphoria, you are trans. NB people, no matter what nb label they may use, and trans if they have dysphoria, so yes, you do have a place as far as I’m concerned.
Yes, some surgeons will perform top surgery on a minor. I only know of surgeons in the United States who will do this. Parental consent is required for this to happen. The surgeons I know of that are currently offering top surgery to minors are:
- Dr. Crane (San Francisco, California)
- Dr. Fischer (Baltimore, MD)
- Dr. Bartlett (Boston, MA)
- Dr. Alter (Beverly Hills, CA)
- Dr. Medalie (Cleveland, OH)

This has WAY too many notes because there’s no way these 72,000+ people are vegan. Everyone who reblogged this and isn’t vegan needs to carefully read what this says and then reevaluate their life and how they use and abuse animals (yes eating meat and dairy is abusing animals). Animals are here to share the earth with us and they have every right to live just like we do. Eating animals and their secretions, buying products tested on them, and using them as clothing and entertainment is animal cruelty and people need to wake up
