Copy/pasted introduction from my other account
So I'm Amber. I'm #trans (she/her). I came over from Tumblr because their new policy is (unintentionally?) targeting #queer content and I'd like a place where I'm safe to be myself. I'm into #science and especially #space, #dnd, and #programming, as well as #leftist #politics and #activism. My best friend is my #dog, Lena.
1) One theory for the original purpose of groomsmen was to throw down with people who might disrupt a wedding for political purposes.
2) The message of "I support your love to the point of being willing to fight for you" is a powerful and radical message of love.
3) With the current state of the world, it's probably somewhat pragmatic to make sure someone friendly at a queer-friendly event is armed in some way.
4) Sword arch!
Can't say it's the most I've ever felt threatened by an American flag, because every flag flying from the back of a lifted pickup takes that award, but damn was it ominous.
I drove to the next big town over with my partner for a job interview yesterday, and we passed through a little town with American flags on free standing flagpoles every 10m or so, and it was the most ominous thing.
I'm feeling like... really dysphoric, I think?
neoconfederate yelling racist and misogynistic slurs
Lol my partner and I went out to protest alone with the dog, and we had a guy stop, hold out a folded Confederate flag he had in his car, and yell "the South will rise again," "hell yeah, KKK," and "lesbian cunt."
Pretty sure he was trying to provoke us into something he could use an excuse to shoot us.
BLM, trans healthcare thing
I'm so fucking tired of telling people to stay focused on the protests instead of getting all doom and gloom about the healthcare rule. Like, there's shit all we can do about the healthcare stuff without allies, and we (white trans people) are alienating all our best allies by ignoring their problems when they need us most.
We can't fight this healthcare thing within the system right now, and Biden isn't going to beat Trump (not that he'd fix things if he did). Our only hope is standing together and maybe getting a revolution out of this whole thing.
And for saying this, I'm getting called a hypocrite and a transphobe. Fucking hell I hate other white trans people sometimes....
