Remember--if you don't make racists uncomfortable it will be racialized people, Black people, Indigenous people, who will feel uncomfortable and unwanted. Which would you rather feel comfortable and safe, bigots or their targets? Choose accordingly. That choice will say much about you.

Lovecraft's racism/colonialism 

I think when analysing HPL's virulent racism and xenophobia it's easy to overlook how attracted he was to the stuff, he's white fragility incarnate. The only way to preserve his place in the world was to make monsters out of everybody else's religions, lest he quit his job and go join the ecstatic dancers on the obscene flutes around Azothot that he just can't seem to stop thinking about how obscene they are. Nyarlathotep reads like a gay love letter, and let's not forget the ending to Innsmouth:

>
So far I have not shot myself as my uncle Douglas did. I bought an automatic and almost took the step, but certain dreams deterred me. The tense extremes of horror are lessening, and I feel queerly drawn toward the unknown sea-deeps instead of fearing them. I hear and do strange things in sleep, and awake with a kind of exaltation instead of terror. I do not believe I need to wait for the full change as most have waited. If I did, my father would probably shut me up in a sanitarium as my poor little cousin is shut up. Stupendous and unheard-of splendours await me below, and I shall seek them soon. Iä-R’lyeh! Cthulhu fhtagn! Iä! Iä! No, I shall not shoot myself—I cannot be made to shoot myself!

> I shall plan my cousin’s escape from that Canton madhouse, and together we shall go to marvel-shadowed Innsmouth. We shall swim out to that brooding reef in the sea and dive down through black abysses to Cyclopean and many-columned Y’ha-nthlei, and in that lair of the Deep Ones we shall dwell amidst wonder and glory for ever.

What HPL feared the most is the unknown, not because the unknown would hurt him, but because he would find himself to be one of them, would want to join in. If he was born today he'd be ranting on twitter about white genocide. Too late, too late, the sea whispers the call and unlike that other dude many are those who listen. Odoyá, odoyá, yá, iä.

CW | Carceral "justice" 

The criminalization system says: “You are a criminal and you deserve pain because of it.”

Liberatory accountability says: “You are a person who chose to do harm, we believe in your capacity to choose to face it and do what you can to repair it.”

trans discourse 

The biggest piece of ignorance I see manifest in so called "trans allies" is splitting the categorization of gender from sex to perform a mental gymnastic routine that accepts binary gender categorization can be changed/adapted/subverted but simultaneously grasps for dear life to the construct of sex as sort of static truth of biology (or even worse nature *shudders*)

You don't need a job to survive.

You need clean water, healthy food, and safe housing to survive.

Under capitalism, however, all of those things have associated price tags. Hence the popular myth of "needing" a job to survive.

Survival should not be a subscription service.

:anarchy:

I was still trying the waters with understanding my existence as a pluran and wasn't sure if certain folks here were actually here or not, but I'm more comfortable now.
I'm Corax! I'm using ze/zem/zer/zemself now and will be more likely to post here :)

I've heard so much about how terrible it is that brands whisked away their pride month logos, this is a great example of what they should be doing instead. :)
