I spent all my brain yesterday and I’m not even really sure on what :grr:

(yes, I have anxiety about talking about race, all white people do, and we have to be more aware of it)

this goes for trans stuff too which I’m on the other side of, but speaking as a white person: most white people don’t even fucking know how to get a diverse BIPOC perspective on their timeline. if you’re white and all you put on their timeline is a rewritten version of something some of your friends said... that’s all they’re gonna see, and their anxiety about race might even inspire them to copy you

if you use 'autism' as a derogatory i reserve the right to knock your head off with a baseball bat

when you compose a tweet/toot/whatever that says “listen to X voices” that expresses a unified opinion on the behalf of X folks when you do not belong to X group, you are contributing to people not getting into the habit of listening to X voices

idle thought 

please stop weaponizing other peoples’ pain against people you already don’t like good night (hopefully)

honestly though when I am actively trying to write first I just don’t post here at all and then I post here endlessly

anyway, I am posting so much because I am procrastinating finishing a kingdom hearts fanfiction

in some ways I think I find it more fun over time to engage with something that’s got a critical hole or two in it that needs to be filled

the things I outwardly enjoy the most almost tend to have more problems than the things I don’t end up spending much time beyond the thing itself enjoying

Not every piece of media or activity that you personally get enjoyment out of needs a justification for that fact, and likewise for things you don't enjoy. It's a logically obvious but sometimes emotionally tough truth to pin down, but I think acknowledging it makes engaging with differences of opinion far, far healthier.

cursed pun, mildly dark humor from a diabetic 

@wigglytuffitout doctor: oh sweet I get to make a diabetes diagnosis today

@wigglytuffitout oh shit now I have to resist sharing the etymology of “diabetes mellitus”

@kat her character arc makes me mad sometimes but that’s because... she is a good character

acceptance is finally realizing you do not have the skillset to microsolder and ordering the assembled thing

@whalefall I’m kinda still processing how much my dysphoria interacts with me hating formal clothes (generally I don’t have formal clothes aside from some wedding party stuff)

“You don't have to constantly consume trauma in order to know injustice exists.”

Stolen from elsewhere. I think I’m gonna try to stay off the real-world medias for a while.
