Notes on softness 

1. Softness as a
political act








2. So soft you’ll never make me

protect me

softer than Whitney 




So soft that other femmes will comfort me when I cry and not say “stop crying”


4. So soft that other femmes will comfort me when I cry and not say “stop crying”




5. So soft that you’ll feel guilty for your racist stare/so soft that I won’t feel it.
