yeen PSA 

I'll start using Discord when they give me the option to turn off their automatic game detection.

I have an account, but I don't use it. If you encounter someone claiming to be me on Discord, or someone you think might be me, they are not me.

youtube playlist link re: alt-right tactics 

"The Alt-Right Playbook," by Innuendo Studios.

The topics discussed here are not unique to the alt-right in the so-called United States of America, but that sociopolitical environment is used as the basis for the majority of comparisons to modern politics.

links re: how to identify fascism 

interglacial.com/pub/text/Umbe - "Eternal Fascism: Fourteen Ways of Looking at a Blackshirt," by Umberto Eco

theanarchistlibrary.org/librar - Ur-Fascism, by Umberto Eco.

Both of these texts will serve you well. The former more readily than the latter.

introduction post, long 

Hey there folks, figure I might as well chuck something out there on public as an intro post.

My name is Alexis, im postfurry stripeyeen weirdo, and I'm bailing from a sinking-ship instance y'all've probably heard of by now after spending a little over two years there.

I was taught to lurk before posting, and I don't want or need mass attention, so you probably won't see anything else on local or federated from me. I'm just here to have a social-media den I trust to keep up on the world through.

If you have any concerns over anything I have posted in the past or anything I post in the future, or over the people I have been or currently am in contact with, please do not hesitate to contact me and/or report it as you see fit. My early internet life was spent on the SomethingAwful forums, back when it was still possible to get free accounts, and then early 4chan before my friends dragged me out of that spiral by the scruff. On top of that, I come from a history of generational abuse on both sides of my family tree. I know my IFF systems are busted and glitchy as hell, all I ask is to be gentle if I step over any lines - I cannot alter my own settings without knowing what needs to be altered, after all.

That said?

Glad to be here. :trans_heart::heart_nb::anarchy:

Article on why looking at buildings may give some people headaches 

"[Research] models show that when the brain processes images that depart from the rule of nature, the activity of the nerve cells is increased, and becomes less sparsely distributed. In other words, such images take more effort for the brain to process."

My body is crumbling and I ended up wobbling to the floor today trying to make breakfast. Holding myself up and lifting things is an immense struggle.

If you can spare us some money, I just need to get food that I don't need to cook because I can't right now.

Thank you.

Church, evangelizing, queerness (personal experience) 

So like I'm not saying always be wary of Christians or whatever. But if someone seems very interested in being your friend despite the fact that they seem to "disagree with your lifestyle" and you know they're in a religion that emphasizes evangelism

I'd be very cautious

Church, evangelizing, queerness (personal experience) 

And even if it feels icky or not right there's a lot of pressure to approach things like this and think about people in this way. You're told you should only be friends with nonbelievers to convert them

And you need to always have people you can target for these kinds of exercises. If most of your community is from the church it's kind of hard so you need to go befriend people for the purpose of evangelizing.

Church, evangelizing, queerness (personal experience) 

When I was in evangelizing circles they had us do this exercise several times where we made a web going out from us then wrote down the names of any people we knew weren't "saved" (ie in a church with similar doctrine) and then we expanded the web out to people they knew who aren't saved that we could reach through them

So you're supposed to like target those people to get to their extended networks. It's very culty tbh and very manipulative

Church, evangelizing, queerness 

The thing is too like there are people who will respond in ways that appear to be positive and supportive and they're possibly more dangerous than the people who are outright about their bigotry?

They probably do actually care about you, but in their worldview that means they need to save you and they're willing to stick around to make that happen. They will proudly brag about how they're willing to befriend gay people to convert them (not to gay people of course)

Church, evangelizing, queerness 

So I responded and was like, please don't ask the pastors unless you want to be manipulated and evangelized to

They want people to come to their church and they want to convert people they see as sinners, don't walk up to them and give them that information

And then someone shared how a bible group chat they're in suggested that they should try to "befriend" members of our lgbtq+ organization which is like, textbook targeted evangelism

Church, evangelizing, queerness 

I went to this FAQueer thing yesterday, so like people were asking questions about queer stuff. And one of the questions was how to find a supportive religious community as a queer person

And some people who don't have much experience with church were like "just ask the pastors if they are accepting of gay people!" And like I know they meant well but noooo don't do that

If you ever want a straight answer about a church don't ask the pastor

I've heard something about the idea of white people reconnecting with ancestry as a way of decentering whiteness and building a different cultural identity.
Does anyone know anything to read on this idea? Terms to look up? Criticisms of it?
Its an idea that I've seen floating about in some of my circles. So I'd like to get a better grasp on it
