Saying Joan Rivers is a feminist icon because she broke into a male-dominated arena like comedy means nothing to me as a black woman. Being a racist transphobe and spending your entire career tearing women apart is not a fucking feminist act. Y’all have the lowest standards when it comes to this shit, Jesus Christ.

On such sunny, sad mornings I always feel in my bones that there is a chance yet of my not being excluded from Heaven, and that salvation may be granted to me despite the frozen mud and horror in my heart.
