This is a subtoot, because I can’t reply to the original toot without getting a headache, but it also works as a PSA:

Do not post blinking gifs without marking them as sensitive media and hiding them behind a suitable CW (e.g. “stroboscopic”, “blinking lights” or “seizure warning”).

hey, to all my real live programmers, how do i make my fictional character sound authentic in his dabbles in coding and breaking proxy servers and decrypting files

Please, if you listen to nothing else I say, listen to this: Talk to your depressed friends. Don't be afraid to reach out to them. Don't expect them to have the energy and presence of mind to reach out to the people they need to.
Reach out to them and try whatever you can to slow, stop, or counteract their spiral. Because if you leave them alone, they will not fix themself.

unpopular opinion but screen shot dunking is part of what made twitter so horrible and im as guilty of this as the next because it gets fucking annoying after a while like i dont want to see bad hot takes on here or toxic shit and it becomes performative really quickly

folks are giving tucker carlson credit for criticizing amazon and walmart and stuff. why? far-right nationalist twats have a long history of appropriating our critiques for the purpose of gaining power.

as the great anarchist philosopher dril once said, "you do not, under any circumstances, "'gotta hand it to them'"

white people 

Destroying racism will destroy whiteness, and as long as people cling to whiteness as a caste identity, racism will persist.

And, to be blunt, if you're, like me, a tiny working class creature, then be aware that whiteness was literally created whole cloth in order to subjugate and control you.

It destroys cultures, languages, communities, solidarity, all in exchange for a series of social and psychic wages that won't pay your rent.

Whiteness will not save white working people.

sure, fuck white people, but really fuck whiteness. white people are a side effect of the construction itself.

Whiteness, politics 

@KitsuneAlicia In addition to those, there was the lawification of the 'one-drop rule', which said that one non-white person in your ancestry makes you 'not white'. This was used to keep people with a great-great-grandparent who was African/Native American etc. from gaining the same privileges as white people.

That law is gone now, but its idea of whiteness as being something pure and easily diluted has remained. Thus, conspiracy theories like 'white genocide'.

Whiteness, politics 

Reminder: 'whiteness' is a socio-political construct. It's not genetic; technically it's not even based on skin color; and most importantly, its definition has been legally changed to suit the government's needs at least once (and those needs were "we don't want these people to be considered white anymore or they'll get treated too well").

It's all a scam.

White people have feelings, too, guys.. Like, "I'm feeling scared so I'm calling the police."
