re: ableism (not meta)
one of the things about ableism is that disability takes so many different forms that having one of them doesn't make you immune from perpetuating ableism yourself.
you can be a wheelchair user who perpetuates harmful stereotypes about mentally ill ppl. you can be an autistic person who thinks chronically ill ppl are 'just lazy'. you can be a mentally ill person who's gross about physically disabled ppls bodies
like even if we don't have the same institutional power or whatever as a fully abled person all of us still need to be careful about slipping into those thought patterns that capitalism drills into us, I think
ableism (not meta)
opposing ableism does not begin and end with accessibility, or with using the 'right' language
ableism is not some harmless mildly problematic quirk that we can deal with after we sort out the REAL problems. it's deeply entwined with this whole shitty capitalist system.
can't work to produce more wealth for the rich? why should you even get to exist then?
nuclear disasters and irradiation
the worst part is how preventable that last one was. who the hell thought it was a good idea to leave radioactive material in an abandoned building and not only refuse to take it, but bar the previous owner from collecting it, and letting it stay like this while the building was frequently looted while the general populace only knew that the machine was valuable? what the fuck!?
nuclear disasters and irradiation
worst radiation disasters in history:
- nuclear bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima
- the Chernobyl meltdown
- the Fukushima disaster
- that time some Brazilians didn't know that radiation machines for treating cancer were radioactive and contaminated an entire city
one of these things is not like the others
not to be TOO rosy on main but who thinks of having a ragtag team of people with whom you just live with but you all cooperate for each other's good, help each other out, do household tasks for each other, and otherwise work together to support everyone as a group and yall are there for each other
gun safety (st louis events related)
ughhh we're keeping our criticism in this argument limited to how the folks waving their guns around were irresponsible and people are still disagreeing with the most lukewarm takes like
this is gun safety and self defense 101. if you own a firearm for self defense or have even thought about it, you should know these things.
"responsible gun ownership" in the states is a fucking lie and this country is a gun cult
Huh. This actually very precisely addresses one of our insecurities:
hey i'm sorry if this is worded weird but- is it common for alters and the consciousness to feel like... separate things? like we have switches pretty regularly but it never feels like 'stepping back' and the person who fronts changes but it still feels like the same consciousness. like we all just experience the world through the same camera, the only difference is who's holding it? sorry again if this is confusing
Yes, that’s not only common in median systems but in all other kinds of systems too.
between all platforms, southern fried queer pride reached their goal and surpassed it, reaching $66,000 to fund a Black queer owned community space!
the space is guaranteed to be funded, but they've raised the goal to $100k for more resources to guarantee more accessibility and such!
