i'm exhausted. i have nothing to add to the noise except that i'm retracting every ounce of sympathy i may have ever had for white americans.

black and indigenous folk have been warning y'all about this for decades and yet so many of y'all are :pika_surprise: that the alt right would be brazen enough to *checks notes* act on the exact thing they've been threatening since non-white people started to get rights.

but fucking here we are on the fedi, still squabbling about ancient discourse because the White So I'm Right crowd cant just listen to a brown person that knows what theyre talking about. in fact, a great big chunk of y'all either participated in harassing the Black folk off this platform, or stood around idly and let your friends do it because you're too much a fucking coward to stand up in a way that matters.

i want to say in all seriousness, body positivity/neutrality/celebrating/whatever that actually includes trans people is cool & it's a shame it is not more prominent. seeing trans women with fatter & curvier bodies proudly & unashamedly has done wonders for my self-esteem and sense of self image. especially this is the case when trans women seem to be all expected to be skinny white twinks lol

Portrait painting I did for fun 🖤 trying to get better at using multiple references and my imagination.

Colonialism didn't start with loans and cultural influence. It started with genocide, enslavement, and land theft. This idea that China is doing what the west did in Africa hundreds of years ago is ahistorical and ignores the fact that the west is still leeching off Africa.

“If you own the seeds you own the food system”

Great article in The Guardian about "the idea of seed sovereignty, defined as a grower’s right to breed and exchange diverse, #Open #Source #Seeds, which can be saved and are not patented, genetically modified or owned by one of the four agrochemical companies that control more than 60% of global seed trade. "

if you want to be helpful, start by being nice. if you just want to show how much of a smart enlightened person you, just shut up.

Unfriendly reminder that western countries have been built on land theft, colonisation, genocide and slavery, which created generational wealth gaps that are only getting worse and that the only looters are billionaires and politicians, have a good day.

it’s very punk rock and sexy of us to care about other people actually i’m tired of apathy and nihilism we CAN and SHOULD build a softer world if only because it is within our power and imagination to do so

Also, not all actions have to be really big, huge actions.

Disabled people have been saying this for so long, and it's why we often get frustrated by the "get offline" mantra (which also seems to overlap with the "this isn't praxis" crowd).

You have to take the actions you're *able* to make.

Writing is an action. Art is an action. Dialogue is an action. Distribution of 'zines is an action. Organising resources is an action.

Just a reminder that it's not silly to care about "other" people, settler colonial/imperialist society is just so foul that they want caring to be taboo.

Was ich mir in den letzten Monaten mehr gewünscht hätte: Lasst häufiger Ärztinnen, Kranken- und Altenpfleger zu Wort kommen statt Verschwörungsideologen. Lasst uns Talkshows über Gehaltserhöhungen in der Pflege machen. Fände ich persönlich viel wichtiger & relevanter.

Schnabelperchten (Study 20201211)

The Schnabelperchten are from Austria, and they inspect homes to make sure they're clean. If your house isn't clean, they'll open you up and stuff you full of trash!
