neurodivergent people: hello. we are Very Very aware that this behavior can be harmful but it's something we struggle with and people's response to us struggling with it is like, Extremely Harmful. can you not
other neurodivergent people who feel like they don't have to critically analyze their ableism because they're also nd: have you considered that you're just an asshole??
TERFs, gender discourse
TERFs specifically come from 2nd wave feminism where they conceptualize gender as a social structure used by men to oppress women, but see men and women as fundamentally biologically different sexes without overlap.
when radical feminists want to "abolish gender" they are referring to abolishing the social order of gender and establishing an explicitly biological determinist sex division. this is bad and harmful, and specifically seeks to harm trans and nonbinary people.
financial help for friend, birdsite link
from a friend:
"Yesterday I lost my E-cigarette and I can't replace it... It's approximately 80 bucks.
On August 1st school begins again so it's just about the worst time to be going through withdrawal.
Any help is appreciated. paypal.me/lunexmoon"
"The end goal of non-binary liberation is not being understood by medical gatekeepers but having no medical gatekeepers, not by having X on our passports but having no passports and no borders, not by outlawing job discrimination but removing the need to work in order to survive and have a fulfilling life, absolutely not by considering non-binary prisons but by abolishing police, prisons, and all forms of carceral and punitive “justice”."
anyways the internet became a lot less stressful for me when i followed these simple rules:
not letting people live in my head rent-free
not engaging with shit that i find annoying assuming it’s not bigoted
not letting the minor annoying things mutuals and others do bother me
logging off when i’m getting Too Online
muting/blocking without remorse
posting about things i enjoy more than deep-fried irony posting
for real if you even limit yourself to two of these rules your internet experience will improve at least 30%
do you ever just ... sit.. and wonder if white people understand they are also a victim of white supremacy? so many white americans have no pride in the culture of their ancestors, if they even know where they come from at all and unless it was one of the major colonizing countries, chances are their homeland has also been smeared and vilified or broken down by richer power complexes so they won't want to find the beauty in their history.
like. how do you make a bigot? you put fear into them. you take away their stability. you spin them in circles and throw them into a strange place to find their own way and then while they're still reeling, you point out the communities making it work and tell them, "They could help you, but they won't." or maybe its "They did this to you" or "Those people are dangerous, save yourself!"
white people were some of the first victims of whiteness and i need you white folk to understand this quicker, realize you are defending your abusers, then put in the work to unfuck yourself and put your bodies and wallet on the line to defend the peoples you have been taught must be eradicated by the people that took your pride from you. it wasn't Black or Indigenous people, quema?
we've been trying to vent our feelings constructively instead of just sitting around angry, and other people have already said everything we want to say to the white folks who are continuing to involve themselves in this discussion without educating themselves or sitting with their feelings in the slightest, so here's some paint bucket emoji edits we just did
(oh and there's also which was already on the instance when we became admin)
