"what we're doing everyday is just a testament to survival, let's just keep it a buck. how we survive, how we dance, how we eat, how we inflect our voices, how we treat one another, how we keep it moving–all that survival–somebody wants to make money off of it, somebody wants to be in proximity to it because it makes them feel cool because the currency of your pain makes someone else with privilege feel like they are validated. isn't that some shit?" - venus x
