I'm tired of picking up the pieces of trans men treated like shit—outright bigotry in fact–by women in positions of power. I'm tired of the racism in trans women's communities. I'm tired of trans women brushing off trans men's needs as "but they have it easy."
We can do better. We must do better.
It's not fair that we have to do the work but that doesn't change the fact that we do.
_we_ are the ones who are changing the world. The people who don't feel the squeeze have no incentive.
Ok, so I have a tweet that's getting kind of popular on birbsite and I want to share the essence here too:
A guy tweeted that MySpace had lost all the music uploaded to it from 2003-2015. " An entire archive just... gone, forever."
So... this is your periodic reminder that uploading stuff to a website isn't an archive.
Crowdfunding plaatforms suck, discussion involving porn Show more
Popular and successful crowdfunding platforms are operating on bullshit speakeasy rules where they take a cut, but maintain the legal plausible deniability that lets them heel-kick dirty pornographers under the bus the minute it's expedient. Which means queer sexuality is still operating in a gray market that's stable until it isn't.

Poverty is not a personal failing. There are lots of people to blame, and none of them are you. People should go out of their way to help you. They should immediately talk to everyone they can trying to get you in a safe situation. They should call in favors you can't. You should not only have enough to not die, you should thrive and those around you should help you do that.
there was some birdsite thread that was like "Black Mirror episodes that would scare medieval folks" and it was solid gold
"A yeoman boileth a Potte, but it shrieketh at himme!"
"A miller draweth Ale from a Bucket, only to discover it more full yet!"
"A ghastly play, performed by Imps upon a flat Glasse"
I cannot stress this enough.
As Black and Brown folks that have to navigate the everyday absurdity of white identified people, it is a good practice to simply reject their attempts to engage you in their delusion.
In many cases the point of white people that engage in talks about society and culture is to make themselves feel better at the cost of your peace and sanity. That's what that culture teaches.
There is plenty of space to talk w/o engaging in this. Reject people who can't do this.
You are not obligated to relieve the anxiety white people have about their conflict of being direct beneficiaries of a wholly destructive and violent culture. That is not your issue to resolve.
I have no problem with putting in the work to help anyone de-construct whiteness so we can speak as fellow humans and acknowledge the beauty of what that is. That is noble work.
Making white people feel better about what they know is wrong isn't. That is their journey. They have to resolve that.
Fascists/racists and dog whistles Show more
My friend and his girlfriend had a very barky min-pin. They tried putting a collar on the dog that would spray citronella in her face when she barked. The dog would bark once, get sprayed, then perform a quick binary search to discover the volume threshold, after which she'd bark right under the threshold.
I'm not sure why we think fascists don't do this.
