I boosted someone else saying this a couple days ago, but I haven't seen it posted today so, Bandcamp is waiving their cut of sales again today, so it's a good time to support black musicians. https://blackbandcamp.info/#/
Would love to see more orientation labels that don't base attraction solely on gender
I feel like most orientation labels are based on the gender of both who you are and who you're attracted to
But some, like demisexual, or queer, or aromantic are based on other things besides gender
And I think there's a lot of room for understanding attraction in ways not defined by gender
A coworker of mine Tuesday was in a bad mood and raving about how she had found out two of our coworkers “didn’t have papers” and kept saying she was going to call ICE because “everyone speaking Spanish is illegal.”
So I reported her to our supervisor that day and I had the next day off.
She got fired on my day off.
weird how despite being active on fedi for 2.5yrs daily, and being politically active, i’ve never been accused of causing drama, despite often making looong posts about politics or theory, while all my BIPOC mutuals are constantly questioned and argued with for simply being on fedi
almost like mastodon is extremely hostile to BIPOC and overly protective of white queers
Haven't seen many people share this here:
The Okra Project is a collective that seeks to address the global crisis faced by Black Trans people by bringing home cooked, healthy, and culturally specific meals and resources to Black Trans People wherever we can reach them.
Reminder that bigotry is inclusive in its exclusivity. Any difference is allowed to be marginalized, and those that focus more on different differences often work together because they know the value of teamwork.
It's why TERFs and white supremacists have huge overlaps, and it's why queer BIPOC face such immense oppression compared to their cishet/white counterparts.
And it's why intersectionality is important to combatting it. No one can be free unless we're all free.
like they legit do not think autistic adults exist
