Hey plant people? Wtf is this and how afraid should I be?
Fuck fuck fuck fuck fuck
Okay it looks like sooty mold… probably bc it’s literally impossible to regulate the temperature or humidity in my apartment and the weather’s been fluctuating like crazy 😭
At least if that’s the case it shouldn’t be lethal 😭

I wish we discussed more how class intersects with queerness — because my cultural and class background puts a massive social and intellectual void between me and much of the mainstream queer community at large, and absolutely isolates me to this day.
I truly believe that one of the major divides currently in the queer community is along the basis of class (other major ones include race and disability). We see it manifesting in the battle lines that have been drawn in the sand recently.
It’s crucial to understand that this isn’t new. Assimilationist movements within the queer community have existed since the beginning. Each time, assimilationism dictates that only those “respectable” enough to be perceived by cishet society relatively favorably are worthy.

Living with me is (not) fun! You get:
-sudden bursts of activity at 3 am
-naps for no discernible reason
-periods where you won’t see me for days and you have to ask: is it depression or is it hyper focus?
-5+ alarms going off every morning at 5 minute intervals
-5 cats! But also… 5 cats
-if you ask me to do a thing there is a 15% chance I will remember it within a reasonable time without being reminded
-emotional about Twitter
-apparently I swear in my sleep?? In French??
-emotional object attachment + faulty object permanence = bad
-I will almost definitely bring home a stray. They might be human
-chronic fatigue
-if you hear me play the same song for 1 hour < at a time, I’m going through something
-sings to myself
-will bring you things you like at random times to show affection like a stray cat

I’m unable to find a news article on this from any source I trust, so let’s talk about Maya Forstater and what today’s news means for trans people. 🧵
Maya Forstater is a British cis woman who filed a lawsuit when she was fired from her job for constant, truly vile anti-trans commentary directed largely at trans women. Her lawsuit was filed against the Center for Global Development.
The basis behind Forstater's lawsuit is that she claims her firing was a violation of free speech laws. This means that this case is much larger than her alone. The outcome of this case determines whether or not anti-trans rhetoric is legally classified as protected speech.

Reminder that saying “when men can get pregnant” etc as a take is erasing transmasculine people and is transphobic, as well as has tangible negative outcomes for our health.
You can make this perfectly valid argument with literally any other bit of rhetoric.
Here’s a brief piece I wrote on this subject for anyone interested:

Ignoring transmasculine people in discussions about abortion, uterine healthcare and birth control is literally killing us. It is not benign to forget we exist when discussing these issues.

Got assassins creed for my switch bc it was on sale, and as someone who has only ever played Black Flag in this franchise, are all the protagonists… like that…? 😬
Bc ngl every time I’d get backstory on Edward I’d literally want to fling him into the sea
“You should feel bad for me bc my wife left me for being an abusive alcoholic that she had to support, and in response I threw a temper tantrum so powerful I left the HEMISPHERE and am 100% expecting her to fall at my feet gratefully whenever I deign to return, she’s so lucky”

Ok I’m not sober rn but I’m realizing that I haven’t even begun processing the trauma I accumulated by being an undiagnosed neurodivergent person for 23 years.
Like. People took a kid who taught himself to read on a kids encyclopedia of natural history and read astrophysics textbooks and Beowulf for fun and convinced him to his core that he was legitimately incapable, unintelligent and a lost cause.
Idk man. All I ever wanted was to be a person worth listening to. And all academia ever did for me was convince me that wasn’t possible.
The fact that I’m even aware of this now is a very new development.
