Working on my thesis and I have been starting to share bits and pieces of my drafts along the way.

I am researching Black women artists and our relationships to monuments and sites, for me specifically here in Barça that relate to Puerto Rico.

Heidegger and Coming Out 

i don't know who needs to hear this but

it is not the job of vulnerable marginalized people to deprogram the alt-right.

our ancestors, our grandparents, our parents, and now us have had our conversations and pleas for humanity denied and ridiculed.

our job now is to rebuild the communities we had torn apart and survive together.

white people out here thinking you're safe from harm are out of your minds, as if they won't start targeting class status, then curly hair, then glasses wearing etc

almost done writing most of chapter 2 for thesis work, so patrons, expect a new post soon!

remember, the thesis posts that are going up are pre-edit, and im mostly showing my process with those. and also sharing research.

freedom of speech & gab 

@kev Kev, this apology is empty. It does not matter what you meant, but what was done. You post served the same purpose that "snowflake" usually does: to disparage and invalidate the opinions of those you saw as too sensitive. If you took the term "snowflake" out of it, the post would still have the same effect. You not acknowledging or apologizing for this, but instead doubling down that you think there are too many "snowflakes" is a continuation of the problem. In the comments of the original post, you also stated that it makes you cringe to see pronouns in bios - something else you doubled down on (https://archive.fo/DsGWW).

In addition to that, this post is made more in-genuine because you once again have downplayed the concerns of marginalized people when you stated
that you love a post that likens our concerns to dementia (https://archive.fo/EFBem).

You need to do some serious introspection on this. Your attitude reflects on the attitudes that you allow in the spaces you manage.
