If you park in handicap parking spots and you aren’t disabled, I hope hell is real and you spend eternity burning. No fucking excuse. It’s consistently white guys I see doing it too. Get fucked.

identities. Show more
I'd really just like people to stop trying to win points in arguments associating other identities and their issues with transgender identity and its issues. It's just going to be apples and oranges, and you're kicking into a hornets nest of people dealing with trauma that is centred around invalidation of their identity. Down that street lies only arguments that suggest invalidation to both identities.
From my office I hear the police shouting through a megaphone, clearing out the homeless encampment in the alley behind my building.
Meanwhile, the storefront across the street from my office has been empty for months, because the landlord raised the rent to a level nobody can afford. They'd rather keep it empty as a tax break.
Somebody tell me one reason landlords should get tax incentives for keeping rent ABOVE market rates, in a city full of people who need homes.

Hmm, one of my friends thinks this might be a subset of negging. Even creepier.

OMG... That thing where men automatically lie to me about something within their first minute of talking to me, seemingly just for funsies...
That's their way of trying to flirt, isn't it.

Misogyny against trans men Show more
Hey just a reminder that most trans men do experience misogyny at least for some part of their lives! Most sexists don't care what your identity is and they're just going to treat you as a girl if you are afab at least until you start to pass.
Trans guys experiencing misogyny for some of their lives doesn't make them any less real men, and I feel like saying that trans men do not experience misogyny erases the struggles that they had to face. It can also make trans men feel less valid if they have been victims to misogyny.
Also a reminder that not all trans men are masculine manly men, some do not "pass" and continue being seen as "women" by sexists. A sexist is not going to ask how you identify before being misogynistic to someone they assumed was a girl based on something superficial like clothing or body shape.
Whether you experienced misogyny or not does not define your gender.
about using “radfem” to mean terf Show more
To clarify for those who need it: terf was coined by cis radfems to distinguish radfems with a tran problem from radfems who thought being a trans woman was potentially radical and feminist as fuck. The secret history is that trans dykes with rad politics had real community with our cis sisters mostly before we had it with each other. We were too few and too far between to know each other.
“Boots of Leather, Slippers of Gold” Show more
“Writing about homophobia, bell hooks criticizes the contemporary feminist view that homophobia is stronger in the Black community. She argues that, if this is the case today, it is a relatively recent phenomenon. When she was growing up in the South, poor Blacks, who were struggling for survival in a society fraught with racial hatred, did not ostracize their gay and lesbian brothers and sisters. Tolerance, if not acceptance, was the norm.”

purism/social.librem.one/other fascist nonsense Show more
So I'm just documenting all of the hate speech and fascist propaganda coming out of/being spread by Purism right now (this dude is a goldmine of nonsense https://social.librem.one/@jlcrawf/102097203849663846).
Ended up on this gem and I need a fuckin' break.
So, I am currently unemployed (again) and in the middle of a second emergency move since the beginning of the year. I'm also broke and still dealing with my violent, stalkery soon-to-be ex husband.
If anyone can help me out with storage and transportation expenses I would be forever grateful.
ICANN granted Amazon.com the domain '.amazon' today, rather than the entire geographic region of the Amazon Basin.
Acts like this are colonial, obviously, but also a slap in the face to early internet promises of global representation + shared power. Its really sad.

Just a reminder:
If you're in a position of power over someone in some context (e.g. work, school), even if it's not that much power, just a bit of seniority
And you "invite" people with less power to something outside of that context
It's on *you* to make sure that they know it's optional and that nothing bad will happen if they decide not to take you up on that invite
Otherwise, you might be abusing your power
