child sexual abuse, grooming, more hard truths Show more
Hi, I see some people boosting stuff that sexualizes characters from children's TV shows and such.
Stop doing this, please. Again, this kind of content normalizes grooming tactics and helps child abusers hide, making our community less safe for queer children and adolescents. Kids' need for safety and agency is more important than your fantasy and convenience.
Again, boosts on this are very much appreciated. Thank you for caring.
a note on catgirl memes, child sexual abuse, grooming, things that are necessary but painful Show more
So. Trans catgirl memes. Ubiquitous in a lot of online trans fem culture. Also, not really wholesome at all when you get down to it. A lot of these memes are tied to sexualized portrayals of minors, and to really gross parts of fandom. Sure they're queer culture; they're also used and loved by people who prey on queer children.
Stop posting that shit. Please. There's a reason I changed my handle here.

first aid for hearing trauma, police Show more
This is a good opportunity to talk about first-aid to protect against hearing loss:
If you have been exposed to sound pressure levels sufficient to cause pain or ringing of the ears you need to wear earplugs for the next couple of days.
Your ears are extra fragile following trauma so everyday noise can become dangerous until your ears have recovered. Avoid headphones at all costs for a few days, even if you normally listen at reasonable levels.

“active shooter” stuff, Christchurch massacre, “false alarms,” U of M Show more
I wanna tell y’all the context of the active shooter warnings/ensuing lockdowns yesterday on UM’s campus. I was at a vigil for the victims of the Christchurch mosque massacre, organized by the Islamophobia working group (kind of like a research hub?). We were in the middle of student speakers, and there was one student reading a poem about Gaza, when someone in the crowd of +150 people yelled “gun!” and people started running.
the Hebrew word for God is Elohim. it has a plural suffix, but takes singular verbs and adjectives and pronouns etc.
it's considered a type of majestic plural similar to the royal we, which itself is used often by God in the Qur'an. another example of something similar is the use of plural you for formal you in many languages.
then again, in the neighboring Canaanite religions from which Judaism likely evolved, the Elohim were the sons of the god El (whose name also means "god"). but still...

TIL there's a tax-exempt nonprofit organization called the Colonial Dames of America, and its members are (presumably cis) women are descended from anyone who lived in colonial america between 1607–1775, and "was of service" to the colonies by holding some kind of public office or being in the military.
so, basically, women whose families supported slavery and genocide in some way.

anti-zionism Show more
yes, we had Jewish kingdoms in ancient Canaan. yes, they expanded and ruled over their neighbors.
but kings are largely in the past because they were a bad idea. ethnic supremacy must become a thing of the past as well. a Jewish state is immoral.
I've just arrived here from queer.town and I hope it will be a good instance for me.
I'm a non-binary trans girl (she/her), neurodivergent, pansexual, kink and a-spec with polyam interest.
I'm from Madrid (Spain), so my mother tongue is spanish. I currently work as a hardware and software engineer and as a teacher. I also have a degree in sexology. My interests go through #sexuality, #feminisms, #polyam, #kink and #GSRDI, but also #FreeHardware and #FLOSS, and other #geek things. And #cats!
Once, I was reading the Y.L. Peretz story Between Two Mountains, where Peretz explores the spiritual struggles of a 19th century Jew who must decide between the stern intellectualism of his Misnagdische training or the compassionate embracing nature of Chasidism. Eventually, the Jew has a dream that he is wandering in a palace of immaculate ice, lead only by the Brisker Rov, who tells him this is no place for resting, they must march forward. He instructs the Jew to hold onto his coat. Eventually the Brisker Rov leaves him, and the Jew calls out, "Master of the universe, please show me a Jew, even if he is a humble tailor. I'd rather be in hell with the People Israel, then alone in this palace of ice!"
Black and Brown people should definitely arm themselves.
Platforms are normalizing rhetoric that enables hateful violence and then a majority of media channels are simply refusing to look at the obvious connections between mass shootings.
Non-violence isn't an option when your opponent doesn't have a conscience.
