DISCLAIMER // about my toots Show more
You may have noticed, I have a very authoritative texting voice
I think in images and concepts. Every time I compose text, I live stream my verbal translation. Not only that, but my thought patterns, sensory processing, my emotional reality, even my physical reality are probably nothing like yours . That's another layer of translation
The end result is very "mode imperatif 🇨🇵 ", which makes me sound very certain, when what I'm expressing are often thoughts or ideas. My perspective is not universal.

c'est bien que les medias en parle , par contre ce serait aussi bien de dire que la France et les forces occidentaux sont aussi responsable de l'insecurité au mali , en plus du terrorisme islamiste .
Thoughts on Queerness and Fascism Show more
Fascism is so susceptible to homoeroticism, we can't deny that.
So queerness, as it was never built to serve any hierarchy, is almost humanity's last defence against fascism?
When someone is trans or gay, that person then becomes an individual with needs that openly conflict with the hierarchy. But because these things are not visible, like skin color or nose shape, they cannot be fully eradicated through militant fascist means.
And even if those queers end up living life in that fascist society, they will still in their existence be a pert of humanity fascism can never reach. You can never breed out the gay, sweetheart. The gay will always be there.
But of course, with the newest iteration of fascism, the homoeroticism is no longer subtext, and white gays need to tread real carefully when they take actions to appropriate fascist symbology.
On Gender Utopia Show more
In a utopia my gender and role in society would be merely decoration. I am art to behold, anyone will witness.
In this world? I am a potted flower, a caged bird, a small bit of the forever, don't you remember that? Didn't that feel nice?
Right now, I'm gasping for breath, clawing for existence, can you feel my never-sated maw?
It's in you too.
And everything else.
But in a perfect world, I would simply Exist, Beautifully. Unperturbed. And that would be enough. I would be at the center, giving all of me without struggle. I would be a non-issue, valued for the same things causing strife now.
If there was no greater cause for war, why not the relief of a future we know to be possible?
It looks like our goal of growing a significant portion of our food this year is pretty likely at this point. Our hill is not a small amount of land, and gourds can be really prolific, so that alone will contribute a lot. Add onto that 5 fruit trees, 3 garden boxes (including a ton of peppers!), a plot of alliums, and a plot of tomatoes, and that's gonna be a lot of food...
why liberation and challenging the medical model matters Show more
entirely not by accident, i was surrounded by people who were of at least relatively similar mindsets around hearing voices.
this was *tremendously* helpful in terms of my coming to terms with being plural growing up. i knew that "spirits" (scare quotes for the folks who aren't religious and such) were just part of life. no judgement meant being able to just roll with things as they came up.
what *has* been distressing to me, as an Autistic person, is people's anti-neurodiversity and anti-self-advocacy attitudes, but i'm learning and adapting to that as well.
the short version of "adapting" here is, to pull a bit from Samuel Jackson's portrayal of Nick Fury, "i've considered your inane decision, and i've chosen to ignore it". honestly, i don't care what you think. :p

for example, it seems that some corners of the psychiatric establishment are figuring out that how someone's schizophrenia manifests can be significantly influenced by culture, and more specifically, that cultures that don't have stigma around hearing voices both have more supportive, community-based models for schizophrenic people in their communities, and that the schizophenic beings themselves tend to not have hallucinations that are disturbing in nature.
Where are the protests in front of USA embassy? We need to move our asses.

My Solarpunk Watermelon patch from @Wewereseeds arrived today and it's as lovely as I expected! :) I'll be hanging onto it until I can get ahold of my patch jacket, which is in another state — I'll have some real gems to sew on! 🍉
Rant - Democracy over Republic Show more
So time for some controversial thoughts, the Founding Fathers claiming they did not want Tyranny of the Majority the more I think about it is Sexist, Classicist and Racist, since it implies that people's vote should not represent the result.
Can you please explain to me, how this is a Just system? And how a Republic better despite its checks and balances you got Trump meaning that these checks and balances which overrule the people's voice did nothing to stop a genuine Demagogue from seizing power for the Oligarch?

@PaladinQuinn what helped me a lot around these sorts of questions about "founding fathers" and so on was reading people's history of the united states, as well as toward an american revolution
