I got to explain #GayPanic and #UselessLesbian to my pysch today 😂

These are terms I just learned (over the last few months myself) that described succinctly, what the heck is going on with my brain.

To unpack these terms, I'm going to start you with Sappho.

“Sweet mother, I cannot weave –
slender Aphrodite has overcome me
with longing for a girl.” –Sappho

To everyone, we've almost all been in this feeling. (i cannot speak for Ace)
Someone we see or meet, and their presence just #dazzles us into #malfunction (however brief)

-
- it's a pretty common #human #feeling. (again, cannot speak for Ace, and that's ok, y'all are lovely :) )

now here's where #GayPanic sets in... we feel the feels...omg. wow.
and our brains go into... IS THIS DANGER????

I'm sorry to say, our panic does start there.

I condemn in the strongest words possible the stigmatization of the mentally ill in the wake of mass shootings. Included below is a well sourced discussion thread that I had with Dr. Megan Ranney, leader of @AFFIRM, for #gunviolence prevention.
usnews.com/opinion/policy…
The media and legislators must stop pointing blame at the mentally ill with a broad brush in the wake of shootings. It is so stigmatizing. Doesn't appropriately target the small subset of VIOLENT individuals and worsens the ability of people with mental illness to get care.
The ACP cautions against broadly including those with mental illness in a category of dangerous individuals, but recommends every effort be made to reduce the risk of suicide and violence, through prevention and treatment, by the subset of Violent patients

3. started locking up the liquor cabinet. Driving drunk. Blowing a tire. Getting picked up by the cops. Getting a gentle reprimand from the cops. Getting a ride home from the cops who, even though they know I did a bad thing, don't talk to my parents about it.

The guy who violently assaulted me last year is allowed to come to #34C3. I was notified about it on Christmas Eve when I was at the buildup.
Aggravated assault here stands for hurting me and strangling me several times till I couldn't breathe. I did not see it coming, and I did not fight back.
And I reported that to #34C3 on August 31 requesting a safe event. I made all my documents available upon request.
#34C3 still admitted him because in this situation "we do not really know what happened" even after providing official documents regarding the event.

1/ Yes, #EverydayRacism is feeding into a narrative that distorts the truth about #violence, its perpetrators and victims…
2/ On the victim side, since that’s my dissertation work, if the victim is #Black and young, they’re portrayed as having asked for it….
3/ If the victim is #White or older or very young, well then let’s look at Black young men close to them…

Refuse Fascism's flyers and website CLAIM they want peaceful protest until Trump is out of office. Sounds harmless, until you look closely at who is behind this group. Hint: Nov. 4th is RUSSIA'S UNITY DAY. 🇷🇺🇷🇺🇷🇺 Thread 1 #ThursdayThoughts #GeeksResist #RefuseFascism
Refuse Fascism's flyers and website seem innocuous. That's intentional. The "Who Is Refuse Fascism?" page on their site has no reference to the Revolutionary Communist Party or RF founder Bob Avakian. 2 #BobAvakian #Nov4ItBegins #nov4thitbegins #Nov4 refusefascism.org/about-contact/
But this Refuse Fascism website post from July is an invitation to all who participated in RF's July 15th "event" to join with the Revolutionary Communist Party led by Bob Avakian. 3 #RCP #Avakian #Communism #revolution
