Please don’t mistake my digital silence for apathy. I’m not sure what Facebook is for. I thought I could get away, in life, with keeping my online life apolitical. With only posting about dance shows and rehearsals.
I know my “silence” is a privilege that I can no longer defend.
I know that I’m immersed in a system that silences minority voices and my chosen silence is oppressive and violent.
I’m not sure where to go from here. I’m not sure how to live online.
But I am trying to speak up – and not just when I need you to come to a dance show…
I am here. I am listening. I am learning how to speak.
We can’t breath.
