do the “hang out with people who don’t have yr politics” crowd know that like ... there’s a difference between disagreeing about tactics but essentially having the same values and hanging out with someone whose rhetoric is like “hey maybe you and yr friends should just die”
“politics” isn’t just something that happens in a sphere separate from our everyday lives
btw want to give credit to @Boringstein for essentially saying the same thing wrt A Certain Columnist which prompted me to tweet this more general version; it’s on my mind all the time honestly
lot of people misunderstanding this because it's twitter; i do not think literally all people further right than me on the political spectrum (that's ... most people) are fascists
i'm talking about choosing not to fuck with people who argue that i (and the people i love) don't deserve rights
other people who are less directly impacted by those arguments and want to be good accomplices or whatever can take that up if they feel they want to

speaking of stupid threads I do, THE ANNUAL FANCYCAT THREAD is coming. I thought covid would derail the annual judging but I was WRONG, DELIGHTFULLY WRONG
honestly I’m just going thru a backlog of promos at the moment and don’t have any meetings this afternoon so let’s fucking go
some background: since 2014 at least?? i have been doing these threads of the annual cat fanciers' association cat show winners because they are just completely bonkers and absurd
