#Fediblock is a super-useful tag to have.
Thanks again to everyone who brings the baddies to my attention so I can keep them out of my TL. You're the best. 💐
Educating white people is a dangerous gambit: they may kill you, then use your words to espouse virtues they don't believe in. #mlk
new virus in China transmits human-to-human
i like how ivory tower whites are like "fuck we wasted too much energy and materials on our global genocide, should've done it more efficiently so we could've pivoted to making less polluting tech before climate change happened"
"fuck we killed too many with our global genocide and might not have a diverse-enough pool of ideas from which to innovate as we handle climate change"
either way just a big spicy "whoops!"
pluralphobia, PSA on how to ACTUALLY include plurals
If you claim to be a community that includes plurals in your discussions, but you only ever give us the means to talk about ourselves as a system and never give room for the potential for just one person in a system participating without the rest?
That's as pluralphobic as denying that there's a system at all.
Individual plurans are not our whole systems and deserve to be considered regular individual people. If we aren't able to participate as individuals, it's erasure of the fact that we are individuals.

You know what I'm talking about.
You talk to your racist grandma, and you just awkwardly smile and nod, because you know it's WORTHLESS to talk to her about why she can't call POC the "coloreds" anymore.
But you tell your friend on here, "Hey, comrade, that was in bad taste"
Why? Because you know your friend will listen.
That's what we are trying to do with you.
it's a sign of respect, not of hatred. Please stop acting like we hate you.
Important thing for all who can see this.
If someone confronts you on your racism or sexism... that means that they like you enough and trust you enough to hear and listen.
If they didn't think you were redeemable, if they didn't think you were worth it, they would roll their eyes and just avoid you. Block on sight, shut down in conversation.
If we confront you about it, no matter how bruskly it may seem. It means that we legitimately think you are better.
When people talk about Mastodon having a whiteness problem, it's because of this:
White people assume that their opinions are wanted and relevant and need to be heard. They aren't.
In the same way, any opinion I could possibly form on autistic people isn't relevant, wanted or needs to be heard. I'd like to believe I'm an ally but still, anything I want or need to say is irrelevant. So I stay quiet, read, and boost. That's it.
Martin Luther King's image is sanitized more every year.
The ruling elite want you to think he only fought for civil rights. They don't want you to know that he spoke out strongly against militarism & capitalism.
