This is not the first time we've encountered this, but fuck the idea that you need to have a certain level of trauma to be a "valid" system. This idea is a recipe for minimizing the experiences of yourself and others, traumatic and otherwise, and the only result is closing yourself off from a network of people who can help you. "Have I suffered enough to be accepted?" is a \*fucked up\* mentality to carry, and we refuse to ask for or defend our validity under it.
short lil list of neat internet tone indicators I use:
-Caps For Light Emphasis (or just to make something stick out of a block of lowercase letters)
-double commas in ironic/non-serious posts,, like this
-misspel your less serious fuckgn curse words
-add "e" to the end of a word to make it a little softer, y'alle
-pick specific letters for your keysmashes to give them different flavors -- you can even make them look sorta like a word that exists! "jfcasdgasdk" kinda evokes the acronym jfc
Me: Oh boy. Trump told the Squad to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”
@Kaden: Surprisingly insightful. They do need to fix the broken, crime-ridden country they are from. So, points for that.
@eldang @mcmoots @savagegoose the one I hate the most is the constant misuse of “crescendo”. A crescendo is the act of growing or, musically, getting louder. So often, a journalist will say that something “reached a crescendo”, when they mean that it reached a climax, which is where you are when the crescendo is done.
In practice, you drop your volume a bit when you reach a crescendo, to give yourself somewhere to go.
Thank you for making space for this pedantry.
Yes, it’s me. The Sailor Moon fictive.
