Pinned toot

New for this year 🐢

I'm mæ, twenty-something, trying to figure out what I want my life to be like while it's running out in front of me

Interests include art, philosophy, feminism, antiracism, and all similar/related struggles. Always trying to be curious, ready to learn from others, and to teach and share what I can. I'm the person in the back of the room screaming "decolonize!", and your asexual pal. :flag_asexual:

Y'a Mediapart qui fait une série d'articles pour les 60 ans d'indépendances d'un certain nombre de pays Africains colonisés par la France.

Je dois dire que c'est plutôt intéressant pour quelqu'un comme moi qui connaît assez mal cette période de l'histoire. C'est assez violent quand même, toutes les crasses que la France a fait.

Prison abolition means deincarcerating your thought; it means not imagining prisons and jails and retributive punishment as your immediate thought on concerns of accountability.

People listen when someone casually brings up a past trauma as a way to subtly request you stop what you're doing challenge.

Irony is always exclusionary, because it divides its audience into two groups: those that get it, and those that don't. Even if every human being in the world takes an ironic statement the same way, in order to realise that it's ironic they must first glean the statement's ironic meaning. Before you become the person who gets it, you are always first the person who doesn't get it. Irony always creates a grey area.

People should be held morally responsible for what they say, which means they can't be given a get-out-of-jail-free card by claiming it's a joke. When you make a joke about something, you're still saying something about that thing. Most of the time what you're saying is utterly inconsequential, but sometimes it isn't. In any case, nothing is ever "just a joke" because every joke is a also a statement.

People who haven’t grown up in heavily Italian-American communities don’t know this, and are lying if they say they do, but there are thousands of Italian-Americans who gleefully and actively use the notion that they’re people of color or somehow adjacent to nonwhiteness as a shield against horrific racism. When you’re calling out Italian jokes, be careful that you’re not enabling this destructive and disgusting idea. Because as someone from Guidoland, USA, it’s real, and it’s pervasive.

reduce your ableist language (contains examples of same) 

There’s a *lot* of ableist language in common parlance. These words and similar ones exist as slurs towards neurodivergent folks in particular. Try pushing yourself to replace/eliminate them.

crazy, insane, mental ➡️ wild, surprising, hectic
dumb, stupid ➡️ foolish, silly
idiot, moron, dumbass ➡️ bigot, asshole, fool

In addition, you are encouraged to think through what you’re trying to say better, and address what the real issue worth criticising is. And if you can’t rephrase it, maybe it didn’t need to be said at all.

You don't need to speak English like a native

It's okay to have "weird" pacing when speaking. It's also okay to make sentences with correct meaning but uncommon phrasing

Don't allow yourself to pause because you're struggling to find the most native-sounding way to phrase what you mean

Just express what you mean in the most comfortable way to you

There's no "broken" English. English isn't owned by Americans or the British. For better or worse, it's become an international language.

Normalise going to European countries, sticking a flag in the ground, and saying you own them now. Then rewriting the Wikipedia page to credit yourself with their discovery.

Police Libanaise et armement français ; Macron 

La Police Libanaise a passé la soirée à gazer la population en colère venue réclamer des comptes à l'État corrompu.

Les lance-grenades employés pour tirer les grenades lacrymogènes sont des lance-grenades Cougar de 56mm, dont certains montés sur affûts multi-tubes. Ils sont produits par SAE Alsetex Lacroix.

Les grenades lacrymogènes sont des CM6, et bien d'autres modèles, parfois pas utilisés en France comme les CM10 à cause de leur dangerosité (mode de diffusion du gaz) et sont également produites par SAE Alsetex Lacroix.

Le fabricant Nobel Sport, concurrent de SAE Alsetex Lacroix, a semble-t-il lui aussi trouvé un marché au Liban, et de nombreux tubes de grenades lacrymogènes MP7 ont été retrouvés.



Macron vient soit disant apporter le soutien de la France aux populations Libanaise, vient donner des leçons de démocratie à l'État Libanais, mais arme ce dernier pour gazer et tirer sur la population en colère.

Nik' Macron.
Nik' la France.

Me, when I see an heterosexual relationship in a fiction: “This is cool and everything, but why didn’t you just make it gay instead?”
