Labels are beacons, not fences.

It’s not whether you’re in or out, they’re just milestones by which you set your tent.

Holocaust 

We say Yizkor- Remember. Remember what happened, remember those who died. But also, remember that antisemitism is still alive. Nazism and fascism are still alive. Racism and xenophobia are still alive. Remember to fight against hate. Fight for your friends.
Remember that we are still here despite everything. Every group they tried to eradicate, we lost a lot, but we survived. Hate will always follow us. We cannot let it win. Might as well fight, since you'll die anyway. Never Forget.

ps non c’è differenza tra pensiero di destra, terfismo o razzismo. non sono sintomi, sono sinonimi.

il terfismo è veleno mentale

ricordo il compagno delle superiori leghista a fare volantinaggio, le settimane dopo la fine ingloriosa del ventennio berlusconiano, a favore della Moratti sindaco, io che uscivo dalla metropolitana a trovarlo lì, il disgusto totale, fare mossa d’evitarlo, dopo che la Moratti aveva fatto uno scempio tale all’Educazione che non c’era nessunə a difenderla

stessa cosa tra i commenti di Facebook odierni — se non è posizione è irrilevante, anche se è danno altrui.

trans, UK, TransActual survey 

TransActual is holding their Community Voice Survey 2021:

"The purpose of this survey is to capture reliable information about trans people’s experiences of healthcare, transphobia, and Covid-19 that TransActual can use in strategizing our approach to activism and applications for grant funding."

"Please note that we are only seeking responses from trans people and people with a trans history who are UK based and over 18."

It'll take around 5-8 minutes - it's all multiple choice, but there are several pages of questions. It doesn't timeout, though, so you can easily pause and come back to it some other time.

time-sensitive mutual aid request [food, parents] (~) :boost_ok: 

So, long story short, I need money for groceries. I don’t want to have to ask my dad for money ever again, but a demiguy’s gotta eat, as well as pay bills & rent. I can’t really do all of that on disability payments because I keep needing to borrow more money off my dad than I can afford to pay him back.

As well as this, the microwaveable, store brand food I had been buying now has this weird taste to it that makes my autistic self just go, “Wtf is this shit?” And I’m disabled in other ways that makes it impossible for me to cook atm. D:

I can only use PayPal atm, which sucks, I know. Thank you, fediverse.

Sometimes white fragility rears its fucking ugly face and I get scared/upset by reading ‘white people do [actual bad real thing]’ tweets, and I remember that idiom vividly, and that it’s probably harmful to do anything but shut up and work on fixing my heart and my action output.

Fun Italian idiom: ‘[for s.o. to have a] straw-tail’: for them to be upset personally at something that wasn’t aimed at them, often revealing that they are involved, are in the group that’s criticized, or have an interest they were trying to conceal. (Implied joke: ‘what, are you afraid of catching fire?’)

(I feel like a child, grasping at fiction to tell me that things will be okay — and being sad when no, fiction tells me things will not be — when I don’t even do my part.)
