Tech-transphobia 

As someone who had been misgendered several times by this kind of algorithm, I can relate this is an issue everybody forgets.

Talking About Triggers 

I'm really glad nobody on here mocks my trigger towards dog harm/death. I just got done leaving a FB Doggo group because a lot of people would post dead dog memes and when they did it triggered my depression and when I mentioned it they laughed at me. :/

I wonder how many people never understood that the "witches" in witches.town and eldritch.cafe's themes were a codename for feminists 🤔?

“People think that intimacy is about sex. But intimacy is about truth. When you realize you can tell someone your truth, when you can show yourself to them, when you stand in front of them and their response is ‘you’re safe with me’ - that’s intimacy.”

saying that a mass of people can't call itself an effective political group until they attain perfection in their own eyes and all agree on everything IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WOULD SAY IF YOU WERE TRYING TO SABOTAGE THAT GROUP

the catastrophising way some self-criticism is phrased really stinks of "we have to be perfect because we're the critics of everything that exists" which, no. we'll never be perfect. the process of identifying the things we're doing wrong and navigating disagreements among our own ranks is what we should be doing all the time. for as long as you can identify things that are going wrong, you're on the right path.

i think leftist communities might underestimate just how much of the self-flagellating we're constantly doing might be the result of internalising the repressive efforts of those who want to silence us
