If someone has a History Of Being Shitty, just because they are notionally "one of my people" doesn't mean I have to welcome them or accept people in my communities welcoming them. And I'm not tagging this with meta because this goes beyond recent events on this network, it's something that I see all the time and I will not fucking stand for it.

So after everything that's happened over the last week, here's a boundary that I shouldn't *have* to make explicit that I'll be pinning to my profile now because of abusive figures with clout in this network:

If you think that someone's marginalization excuses them from criticism, especially if they are acting in a way that marginalizes others, stay far the fuck away from me.

I still haven't played Deltarune, but its timeline is obviously the result of a Scratch. Now which universe is pre-scratch and which is post-scratch…

Also, while its great that so many cities and states are in favor of giving up Columbus Day for Indigenous Peoples' Day, don't for a second forget that this is as much a placating gesture as anything else.

Politicians would rather rename a holiday than be taken to task regarding reparations towards the indigenous people, offering aid to those still living on reservations, or committing more action towards the staggering numbers of missing and murdered indigenous women. Don't let them skate by.

it's strange how white supremacists don't see Latinx people as people, but they love Columbus, a Spaniard whose language has colonised literally half of the Americas, which is the mother tongue of Latinx people.

whiteness makes no fucking sense at all.

ableism, tech, politics kinda, rant 

I know the vegan discourse was days ago but I think about it every time the topic comes up. I think about how the entire movement is rife with racism and classism and something needs to be done about that for it to reasonably become the status quo.

At the very least they need to stop pointing fingers at POC who aren't the primary contributers to the problem, vs the large corporations who are.

Imagine telling fishing villages in inhospitable-to-whites areas that they are horrible and should reevaluate their existence because their culture is sustained by and also reveres the wildlife they sustainably hunt.

Imagine being part of a people who oppressed and murdered entire tribes and still oppresses them only to tell them they don't value life because they don't eat the way you do.

Disregarding any POC culture that eats a fair bit of meat as monstrous is such peak white colonizer bullshit.
