The FELON………It is going to be ALRIGHT!

on February 16, 2016

Growing up many of us were told that “sticks and stones may break your bones but words can never hurt you!”. Well there may have been a time when that premise was appropriate but, as a black, gay, woman who has intrinsically fought passionately through all of the negative and hurtful labels that have been placed on me, I have to say that words are definitely hurtful and powerful. Anytime words can be use to marginalized and dehumanize a soulful being, they hold power. I am not the Felon that the US Federal Criminal justice system wants me to consciously be. I will define this absurd label for myself and place my own swagger to it. I rebuke that disfranchising and limiting label that tells me I am less than and what I can’t do, as I have the other negative connotations. My felonious self will remain purposeful, loving and boisterous. Life is good. Different but good. Peace.

The journey continues……….the feloniousphd.

    You go girl!! it will be whatever you make it to be. What you don’t know yet, is that some years down the line you are going to look back and say, “So that is what it means!” Because only then you will be able to see and understand the direction it pointed you in that otherwise would have never happened. You won’t want to go back and have it not happen because of the person it is making you to be. That is exciting!

    I tried to reblog this but it wouldn’t let me. the printing around where you hit the reblog button overlapped when I tapped the button and it wouldn’t let me type. I’ll try again tomorrow.

    • Ok let me know if I need to do something. Thanks

        I just tried again, but somehow when I hit the reblog button the lettering overlaps. I can’t write a comment and the buttons won’t work. See if you can have another follower try to reblog and see if it happens with them, too. I don’t have trouble with other blogs. I thought if I waited a few days maybe it would correct itself. I’m going to try the process on a different blog post and see what happens.

        It is just your blog – on any posts. I checked on other blogs and I had no problem. If it happens with other bloggers you should go to support

      • Ok I will check my admin settings. Thanks.
