I don’t care what you’ve been told in class. You really think you’re given the tools to influence those in power?
Listen to people who are oppressed.
Listen to people who know more of history, struggle and fascism than you.
Learn about fascism, alt-right; antifascism and leftism.
Learn about cognitive biases and apply this knowledge to call the status quo, the one that’s hurting people, into question, not to be an edgy jerk saying that maybe «nazis are not that bad».
Brave is showing up in my newsfeeds again, so
Periodic reminder that Brendan Eich, the CEO of Brave Software, is a homophobe who donates to anti-LGBT organizations.
I'm not saying that you shouldn't use the browser. But you should probably be wary of any monetization attempts, since we know where that money will go.
White leftists have no footing to claim that what a democratically elected indigenous man did while in power, (a man who pulled MILLIONS out of poverty and IMF backed destruction, who united the indigenous peoples, one who nationalized many of their natural resources to fight back against corporatization) "wasn't enough", to hold a microscope to their perceived pitfalls and mistakes/poor policy positions, while ignoring the megatons of good and the importance of having leftist indigenous representation in Latin America, is honestly your whiteness showing fuckin HARD
If you ain't up in arms over the coup and the amount of racism and abuse the indigenous people are facing as a result and have the "well..actuaally.." attitude about it, then block me. Either you can learn, listen, and understand, or you can leave.
This is a fascist anti-indigenous US backed Coup in order to destablize the country to steal the resources they wished to nationalize.
Stop repeating neolib talking points.
France inter refuse de diffuser des spots publicitaires sur le référendum ADP, au motif qu'ils pourraient choquer les convictions politiques des auditeurices. Ça fait des semaines que France inter diffuse des spots publicitaires incitant les gens à acheter des actions Française des jeux. Hahahaha ils vont tellement se faire défoncer 😂
Transgender research, Nazis (don't you just want to click on this?)
One of the things that gets me about (especially liberal) people acting like bigotry must be excused, as the popularity of transgender information is "so new":
The Institut fur Sexualwissenschaft was a humane research facility in Berlin in the 1920s, founded by the man who coined "transsexualism". They researched, performed SRS, and had trans employees.
If the Nazis hadn't burned the place in 1933, we'd all be farther along.
C’est là qu’est le problème. Le problème c’est l’impunité totale d’un homme qui est à la fois un parfait produit et une parfaite représentation de la manière dont le patriarcat produit des violeurs.
Le mec, ça fait trente ans qu’il se balade un peu partout en ayant violé (et peut-être en violant encore) des enfants et des adolescentes et personne ne dit rien.
@miosety Rappel : le camembert incliné est une arnaque !
Ici, par exemple, on a l'impression que 7,5 millions font plus que 9 millions.
C'est d'autant plus vrai que les parts ne sont ordonnées ni par valeur, ni par continent, ni par ordre alphabétique.
LGBT scenes circa 2011: Use 'they' UNTIL you know what someone's pronouns are, either by asking them directly in private or by talking to their savvy friend about it. Give your own pronouns with introductions. Don't out people or pressure them to divulge pronouns where that might out them. Correct yourself if you use the wrong pronoun.
[long-ass game of cultural telephone later]
cishet liberals: call people by the pronouns that go with what kinda junk I think they have unless I don't know them and I've clocked them as a trans woman, then use "they" and ask for specifically their pronouns in public in front of other people who may not have clocked them. Got it, seems easy enough
My 15yo kid just came out to me tonight as trans male. In order to be more supportive, I would really like some feedback from other trans folks on how to assist or better understand this process, especially on how that works today vs 30 years ago.
Caveat- I had a parent who is trans, but this isn't the same kind of relationship. I would actually be assisting my minor child in this change, so that makes me a more active participant in the process.
Feel free to boost. #trans
