Pinned toot

hey everyone. i'm adae and i cling onto art cuz life tries to whip me off into a black void of despair. isn't that fun?

i make all kinds of art but you'll probably be seeing a lot of paintings and drawings here.

feel free to interact if you want to talk about technique, inspiration, decolonization, and the weird metaphysical shit in art and life itself i guess (esp. if you're black!!!). that's all so let me tighten my grip before i get flung off

my weirdness/mental health but wait for it... 💫 gratitude💫 

i have real bad people pleasing tendencies/over explaining tendencies and even saying this is prob that, but i have mastadon stripped to a bare minimum for my sake so i don't see favs, boosts, and follow requests.
I'm really not trying to be rude when i don't see something, but my main focus here is to get over the fear of sharing my art and speaking my mind.
Still, thanks to everyone who has faved, boosted, or followed from what i saw!

help a gay black trans man in law school 

Obligatory public interest law school fund post.

Hi, I’m Levi, and I’m a gay black trans man in law school. I’m going into my last year and I plan on doing public interest nonprofit work for LGBT advocacy.

The best part about working is that I get to help lots of people in need. I love it, honestly. The downside is that for a lot of us in this field, we get like 0 dollars. I have to pay my rent and afford my hormones... like all of us really.

If you’d like to donate, you can! But no pressure.

re: Israel-Palestine conflict, Zionism & antisemitism 

@ljwrites Jewish *existence* in Palestine, including migratory existence, is of course older than herzl, zionism, or any of the states responsible for what the region is like today. That has nothing to do with the right-wing politics the israeli colonization project has always embodied (& embodied when it was going to be an African colonization project until that fell through too).

The equivocations about what it's “your place” to do are just distracting from the points we raised. Is it “your place” to define whether or not israel is settler colonial? What about whether Palestinians have a right to resist by any means necessary, or whether what is *actually happening to Palestinians right now* can be called genocide (since you don't seem to have any qualms about calling what you think could possibly happen to Jews genocide)?

Again, you're doing the exact thing antisemites do where you act as if Jewishness and support for israel are inseparable, but them you claim you can't take any other stance...*because* of antisemitism? This makes no sense.

On Israel and Zionism 

It's pretty obvious to me that we should measure Israel with the same standards we measure other settler-colonial states.

Herzl's Zionism is bred on the same European ideology which tried to legitimize other settler-colonial endeavors. It's also undeniably an important imperialist project for the United States.

Also equating Jewish people with (white, European) Zionists supporting Israel is not only ahistorical, but erases the multi-cultural Jewish traditions.

Wow. The “both sides” is coming from inside the house. 🥴

re: Israel-Palestine conflict, Zionism & antisemitism 

@ljwrites you can't call for a colonizer entity & a colonized entity “to exist peacefully side to side” because colonialism is violent by its nature.

re: Israel-Palestine conflict, Zionism & antisemitism 

@ljwrites “illegitimate the way the so-called United States or Australia are” & “on par with settler-colonial states” are precisely what israel is though. herzl, arguably the most important zionist, said time & time again, publicly & privately, that he wanted to create a colony with the support of a larger empire. that's the actual history, those are his actual words. they only stopped saying the quiet part out loud recently.

Since we've had so many reveals for Endwalker this weekend, I've decided to reveal Minako's job for the new expansion's story, Dancer, and her updated look to go with it!

francophone left, Palestine 

Perhaps now is a good time to remind people that Frantz Fanon's widow Josie had jean-paul sartre's intro removed from later editions of The Damned of the Earth because sartre (along with simone de beauvoir, & many many more white french leftists) was a zionist shit. @OCRbot

I watched the keynote address in a discord call with my FC and it was really funny hearing the one (1) cishet dude in call casually go "Oh cool" when male viera came on screen while the rest of us lost our damn minds

Please, if you have a bot, make it post in unlisted rather than in public. There is so many bots posting in public now that the federated timeline is becoming unusable.
I don’t usually ask that, but can you boost this to spread awareness?
