What The Hell Is Wrong With You?

By Faith Cheltenham

For Gamergate and the men violently hating on women.

For the dudes who boycotted Star Wars because it had no white male lead but featured a few people of color and cast a woman or three.

For the folks clamboring to eat brunch or drive on freeways when they have the privilege to experience ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter‬.

For all the folks who shushed Jennicet when she spoke up to President Obama on the subject of ‪#‎Not1More‬ and demanded an end to the detention of transgender Latinas.

For those that tried and convicted Trayvon for having a hoodie up, a bag of Skittles and a Lipton tea.

For the folks who are killing women by systematically rolling back women's healthcare as part of a plank to eradicate the rights of women.

For the people who whitesplain all over themselves, getting angry at any evidence of independent Black thought and resiliency, whether it be‪#‎whitefeminism‬ or ‪#‎whitetears‬ or ‪#‎BernieSoBlack‬.

For the folks that tell bisexuals their labels are irrelevant, despite the fact bi people die from higher rates of every health disparity including cancer, and yeah ‪#‎DavidBowie‬ was ‪#‎oneofus‬ and if you'd like to have more beings like him alive, you need to ‪#‎savethebisexuals‬.

For the lovers of racist writers like Lovecraft and Highsmith.

For Charlie Hebdo and it's mockery of the ongoing and quite current deaths of Syrian toddlers.

For the authorities that locked up the Lesvos lifeguards instead of letting them save Syrian toddlers from drowning last Friday.

For the LGBTQ advocates that would enjoy the freedom to marry while ignoring calls for a ‪#‎freepalestine‬ and the right to a Creating Change conference free of ‪#‎pinkwashing‬.

For the Sad Puppies.

For the Oregon "militia" and their missing snacks.

For all the folks who are voting Trump.

For all those who would trade one oppression for another.

On this Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I recommend the hashtag #wthiwwy for your use!

Bi History Moments: Anything That Moves, Spring 1994 (bisexual manifesto and cover)

Anything That Moves was a literary, journalistic, and topical magazine published in the United States from 1990 to 2002.[1] It was created as an expansion of the San FranciscoBay Area Bisexual Network (BABN) newsletter by BABN member, Karla Rossi, in collaboration with bisexual and bi-friendly editors, writers, and artists to become a full 64-page magazine with an international subscriber base. The complete title of the magazine, Anything That Moves: Beyond the Myths of Bisexuality, was purposely chosen for its controversial nature, while its tag line indicated a clear intent to challenge stereotypes of bisexual identities and behaviors. The magazine took its name from the stereotype depicting bisexuals as willing to have sex with "anything that moves".[2] The magazine's mission was to confront and redefine concepts of sexuality and gender, to defy stereotypes and broad definitions of bisexuals and to combat biphobia. - Wikipedia

The Memorist That's Me!

Just call me the memoirist.
People often say they remember me.
And I can't forget sh**, and just filled out a new HSAM research request UCI had sent me, so...

Reality for me? Just temporarily misplacing, or actively trying to forget, more things than the rest of humanity, and nonetheless it just comes back screaming to life over and over again like Groundhog Day (the movie remains a small personal comfort).

But. Living with hyperthymesia is fine, useful even. I hunt those oppression would use with it some days, on others I work on sharing a new sys with the public featuring my library of screenshots, and those like mine for my various cases in a new and innovative way. Partly book, partly website, all me. A lot of white people need to read themselves NOW I think, what they said THEN, ya know?

For the last year and half, I've also been working with a therapist who's diagnosed me with hyperthymesia. Which has led to realization after realization and I'…

Faith Cheltenham Bio

Faith Cheltenham

activist/writer/speaker

There are so many different aspects of Faith Cheltenham’s life and career––writer, community organizer, advocate, activist, lecturer, poet, social media expert, digital strategist––that she is currently working to develop a single unifying “theory of Faith.” (It might be easier if you keep in mind Faith lives with hyperthymesia, or the inability to forget her own memories.) Then you too might be able to “keep thefayth” and learn to live in a future where gender and sexuality quite easily bend and every single Black life matters. 

Faith got her start in LGBT advocacy as a Human Rights Campaign intern on the Gore 2000 campaign, and in 2002, she co-founded UCLA’s BlaQue for LGBT/SGL students of African descent. In 2006, she appeared in the Emmy winning reality series on race in America, “Black. White.” produced by Ice Cube. 

After spending time working in corporate America doing digital strategy for Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York and co-creating …
