@myconidiosyncracy it's when you've had a stupid theory on your mind for years & use it to demonstrate you're capable of proving stupid theories to higher-ranking members of the theocra- ..., I mean academia.

colonialism wiped native knowledge from existence that could have been key in the development of better production practices because they believed they were just naturally better and never thought to consider non white people could do something so complex due to the ideology of white supremacist colonialism. so sure, white boy keep going on about how much white people have given to history

the terms "landlord" and "landlady" enforce the gender binary. to be more inclusive, you should use gender-neutral terms instead. like "leech," or "parasitic scum." or "human dartboard"

I think the fact that the majority of Shakespeare's plays were adaptations of pre-existing stories is a solid testament to the importance of the public domain and understanding culture and creativity cooperatively instead of competitively. so many fantastic examples of art are adaptations (particularly films) or strongly inspired by other pieces and to ignore this, to assert that absolute Originality is the only true form of creativity seems destructive and quite capitalist to me.

u know what would be interesting research, if well-done? something about dysphoria in different cultures. like, do people in certain cultures have heavier/lighter dysphoria? how does dysphoria vary between people of different cultures? etc

'cause the trans perspectives most represented are coming from anglo-centric places, or at least from a background of anglo gender roles

(& by research i don't necessarily mean a study, interviews or whatever r cool too)

@magicalmilly
It makes people uncomfortable because we still live in a “Handle it in the Family” society. Our bodies are commodities and our suffering is trivial. Giving irl voice to our pain and loss gives us power because the greatest leverage abusers have against us is our silence. I’m really grateful for your openness, and we won’t allow another single thing to be taken from you 🔪

@guerrillarain You know how it goes.

White people don't like it when we do what is actually best for us and not their half ass, ineffective sensibilities.

We commit the worst crime one can possibly commit: creating a safe space that does not prioritize white feelings.

Ha, we're straight up MONSTERS.
