Today's goals:

- 2 loads of dishes
- Clean the counters
- Sweep the kitchen
- maybe try writing a bit for that article if I have the energy
- take a nap
- maybe catch up on some sewing before going to bed for the night

You know, now that I think about it, I have never had another native person express discomfort in the idea of me reconnecting with my culture just because I'm light. Quite the opposite in fact. most of the support I get in that endeavor comes from other native people. maybe I should stop letting my anxiety get the better of me and just... get started.

We should also talk about how the MH of certain users that fit specific brackets on here are protected in ways that it's not for others.

And it's driving queer femmes of Color off the fediverse

And ppl either dont notice
Or care
Or both

Were painted as serious bad actors that are drama stirrers
Or only good for ur consumption whilst we are erased and abandoned

I can't wait to sit around a fire and tell children ghost stories about monsters called "bosses"

oh my god, did the fucking dumbass get us into another goddamn war?

Gun control, racism, Just staying up at night thinking of dumb shit I've done in the past 

I remember once in freshman year in high school, my government teacher had us do an assignment about whether or not we should have gun control. This was also a partner project.

I was partnered with this black girl named Robin. She talked about her experiences with gun violence and police violence, and my ass had the gall to look her in the eyes and say "But what about the second amendment"

Robin, if you're out there, I am so sorry you had to put up with my racist dumbass. You deserved better

Christmas, cw request 

Yet another reminder to please CW your christmas toots. This is not a happy moment for everybody and cws allow us to filter it out easier

Disabled people don't have to be polite when asking for accessibility. It's our right.
No marginalized person needs to be polite when they demand not to be discriminated against. It's their right.
Fuck tone policing. Fuck respectability politics.

Christmas ment. 

my wife got me a calligraphy set for the solstice and I might cry

I'm painting an oceanic thresher in acrylic. It's her favorite shark.

She will receive this gift on Christmas

If anyone can show solidarity to a queer Jew with more bills than money, this is my help me afford winter power bills request. Kick in via PayPal to sharochka@gmail.com

If it makes you uncomfortable then good. It should.

If you're a white person and you block or mute someone, or filter a term about indigenous issues and race issues, then you're willfully perpetuating white supremacy. Full stop.

Fun fact: lesbians have never exclusively owned 'butch' and any lesbian that disagrees can rip the word from my cold, dead, gender non-conforming hands. :blobuwu:

Twitter, terfs 

Took a little peeksy over at Twitter and fell down a terf rabbit hole. Here's my favorite gotcha line from terfs for the decade:

"Please tell me if the fact of my vagina is wrong."
