My name is Brianna (AKA my nickname: Brianna Christ).
I live in Kokomo, Indiana with my partner Lewis. I’m a common sense liberal, intersectional feminist, happily taken queer, soon-to be Jewish convert, and an outspoken woman of color.
I’m a pretty down to earth kind of gal. I love film, television, reading, learning, animals, music, Gender studies, antiques, and of course, smashing the white supremacist patriarchy.
Other than that, there’s not much to me, but as always, my ask box as well as my inbox is open if you have any questions or what have you.
*I welcome call outs. I never mean to say or do demeaning things to anyone. So, if you feel that I’m stepping out of line, please-by all means let me know, I’d really appreciate it.*
I remember when I thought people in their 20’s were adults. Now all of my friends are in their 20’s and everybody is just kind of fumbling around bumping into each other, trying to figure out where the free food is
"I used to be a preschool teacher, but I got fired." “What happened?” “Well, I decided that I wanted to have a socially conscious class. So we learned about apartheid in South Africa. Then we learned about homelessness. Then we made mother’s day cards for Trayvon Martin’s mom. And I think the principal decided that it was too much for three and four year olds, because she told me I wasn’t a ‘good fit.’ But honestly, I was just shining too bright for them. And now she’s going to see me on Humans of New York, and she’ll be sorry!”
Receptionist: Don't you feel like your generation is just lazy?
Me: Lazy? I'd say apathetic.
Receptionist: Isn't it the same?
Me: No. My generation is criticized and toiled with, and I don't see why not - just turn on the TV and watch what they're feeding us. But my generation is not lazy. My generation fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. My generation fought for womens rights in a fury that hadn't been seen since the 19th Amendment. My generation got our first black President elected. My generation fought for Gay rights for the first time in American history. And with all that, we are apathetic, and that's because things aren't going to be better for us down the road. We are the first generation expected to make less than our parents. We are the first generation to see America lose its status as a super power. We've lived through the worst economic times since the Great Depression, and are forced to take out thousands of dollars in student loans at the same time, all while our college degrees slowly turn into a highschool diploma. We've done plenty, and expect nothing. So no, I wouldn't say we're lazy, just apathetic.
