You’re not a bad person for buying something from Amazon or Walmart, even though those are awful companies

You’re not “supporting evil” by using GitHub or Gmail, even though it enriches MS and Google

You’re not awful for streaming a Harry Potter movie, even though JKR is a bigoted turd

Sure, if you have better options, I encourage you to use them. I’ll even recommend some! But you’re not bad; you’re not “supporting” the bad things those people and orgs do; you’re just trying to live through this plutocratic hellscape

Borders are a minor inconvenience for rich people, but hostile, near-impassable walls for poor people trapping them in their country of origin.

Sometimes I see people defend small towns and suburbs with arguments that boil down to "yeah it sucks to grow up there if you're queer or disabled or not white but it was a nice place for me to grow up" and like please stop.

I haven't posted art in a while, so have a slugtaur!

This creature is inherently good-natured, however terribly feared by lettuce farmers. (Badly photographed traditional piece from 2018.)

:blobthinking: believing that people have True Names - hokey but understandable

:blob_gnikniht: believing that each person has a single True Name - unduly limiting but not impossible

:hot_shit: :oh_no: believing that a person's One True Name is whatever a government registry has on their records - the perfect blend of authoritarian and bureaucratic

from now on i will be entering a transitory period wherein I use the trans- prefix as often as possible in order to better transfer my agenda into popular culture.

this may seem a transparent strategy but really if you think about it you'll find yourself transfixed by my transcendent transmissions, transshipped to you via transoceanic transistors, translated transocularly and transcribed by your brain, transgressing upon the normative, transmogrifying the zeitgeist with transgenderism

antiblackness & xenophobia in sweden 

Signal boosting some commentary from #SwedenGate. The links to the OPs will be in the replies.

Malick Doucouré: "Finally, justice is coming to Sweden.

The Nordic nation’s troubles are hitting the timeline through Swedengate, having long avoided criticism for its contemporary racism, and historic role in slavery and empire. Note: Sweden made a fortune from manufacturing chains for slaves.

Sweden had colonies. They had coastal forts in Ghana, Fort Carlsborg and the capital Fort Christiansborg. There was even a Swedish East India Company. Just because they failed doesn’t mean they weren’t imperialists, too.

Sweden and the rest of the Nordics have a history they’d prefer remains unspoken of.

I hope Swedengate builds on this imperial racist past in dissecting and analysing it’s present day issues surrounding racism." [1]

Merry Kaiju: "Europeans have a lot of nerve complaint about black and brown immigrants considering how rich African and Asian nations made them." [2]

Kay: "this also reminds me of a time my professor, was telling us that she went to Sweden to study and they kept talking about American racism and she’s like, 'where are the POC?' and her guide was like, 'they live across the river away from us :)' baby, that’s segregation"
