"well adjusted" as in "breaks down bullshit more often than bullshit breaks me down"

Show thread

if "well adjusted" translates to "well suited to moving through this awful bullshit with the minimum amount of friction" maybe we need better metrics is all I am saying. because, yeah.

nothing is funnier to me than ppl who are so proud of the fact they've never heard of a celebrity recently called out for bad behaviour and instead boast abt how they only care about Another celebrity who was also called out for bad behaviour

perhaps a gender hot take idk 

@bright_helpings !!! there's the adequate expression I couldn't make!

re: perhaps a gender hot take idk 

@dragon @aradinfinity some have a "funny" new transphobic term for the acronym (that I've conveniently forgetten oops) but for the most part it's just a quiet way to appear friendly w trans-supportive individuals while signalling to other terfs that they're "hygienic" and other gross dogwhistles. "tme" has been better received than "afab" bc of the related activism of... the mere acknowledgement of the existence and struggle of trans fems.

re: perhaps a gender hot take idk 

@aradinfinity @dragon some ppl choose to specify as an attempt at alliance, as trans fem individuals are more targeted for harassment. the same logic as ppl putting "white" in their bio as a show of?? solidarity or openness or smth w poc. idk it feels hugely performative and oversharing to me but some ppl find it v important to know up front.

re: perhaps a gender hot take idk 

@dragon @aradinfinity yeah. I find it slightly more Hmmm than afab/amab nb tho bc tumblr terfs also put the term in their bios.

you have selected "regicide." If you know the name of the king or queen being murdered, press one.

perhaps a gender hot take idk 

for reasons I cannot adequately express, seeing ppl self identify as "nonbinary (tme)" raises a warning flag. like,, it's not outright Wrongβ„’ to describe yourself as privileged in some capacity but it just makes me go hmmmm for a minute or two.
