Getting into the Lana Del Rey concert last night was ridiculous. People were running and knocking over tables and pushing and it was stupid. The security were trying to get everyone to step back and threatened to close the doors and not let anyone in but it wasn’t possible to step back.
There was a guy behind me and he grabbed and squeezed my shoulders.(sort of like when someone’s like “you got this”, ya know? like it would have been an encouraging squeeze from a friend or family.) BUT I didn’t like it and I told him not to touch me.
And he turned to the girl next to me and he was like “is this your girl? did you hear her? she said ‘you’re not getting in front of me’. Yeah, I am.”
and I turned to him and said “NO, I said don’t touch me.”
And as soon as I said that everyone turned to look at him and I could feel the bond form between the other girls and I.
Idk what he said after that but he kept pushing his way up and once we were in I think he actually ended up getting kicked out or escorted to the back, idk, idc.
Also after the opener and before she came on sooo many people were trying to push up again but the girls next to me wouldn’t budge and I fell in love with them.
honestly though, there are bigger problems in the fucking US than a white man getting his cattle taken away
The Stonewall Riots were started by trans PoC, and making a movie about it, directed by a cis white guy, and starring a cis white guy. is probably one of the biggest slaps in the face to the trans community to date. Transwomen of color started the riots, and were swept under the rug as drag queens by the cis gay community. Making the movie with white cis male actors is disgusting and transphobic as hell.
