us imperialism history; racism
this country and its nuclear program are evil and racist. the same people that oversaw the development of the atomic bomb oversaw the internment of Japanese Americans in concentration camps. the atomic bomb is a core part of US mythology. white USians teach their kids to worship the bomb. "it ended the war". as if the carnage it produced - even before it was dropped - should be put aside.
This notion that you have a "real true gender" that you can easily find in this instantaneous moment by "cracking your egg" just feels completely at odds with my own experience, which has been one of continual evolution of my understand of both my gender and gender as a concept in our society.
I do truly understand some folks have that experience of going "Oh, yeah, that's it" and have that be the end of it, but not all of us do.

"BE WARY OF WHITE SAVIORS. In times of crisis, people who have access to money, stable jobs and housing (most likely white folx) will offer these under the guise of Mutual Aid. Unless they commit to a long-term Mutual Aid goal beyond crisis, then it is NOT Mutual Aid. It is CHARITY or WHITE SAVIOR COMPLEX. And we must hold them accountable for not exercising Mutual Aid beyond an emergency situation. Use their time, money, capital, and privilege to educate others on how and why Mutual Aid is community commitment. It is easier than just donating to someone's gofundme. It is more than delivering groceries to the elderly once or twice during the covid-19 pandemic. IT IS A LONG TERM COMMITMENT BASED IN ACTIONABLE RESULTS THAT REMOVES COMMUNITY OUT OF THEIR DEPENDENCY ON THE CAPITALIST SETTLER STATE."
disability meta, ableism
i feel that currently one of the most important things abled ppl need to internalize abt disability is that it doesn't always mean a disabled person is literally physically incapable of performing a given task; but rather that it would be very cruel and unrealistic to expect them to
just b/c i can technically stand and walk around unaided sometimes does not mean that I should be expected to do so
2) BIPOC are under-represented in the outdoors, both in the industry and in the recreation population. A lot of this is due to the pay gap that doesn't leave anyone other than white men with leisure time and disposable income. I donated to this drive to get outdoor gear to BIPOC to help close that gap, and because time outside is even more important while we're otherwise stuck inside : https://www.gofundme.com/f/Bipoccampingkits
