Hello it’s #introduction time!
I’m crash, a nonbinary trans person in their early 30s.
I am currently living on Algonquin lands in a central part of turtle island, also known as Ontario, Canada.
I have a lot of Opinions and like to talk about cats, kink, relationships, neurodivergence, and social structures.
I do a lot of rope / bondage / self tying and I have a lil blog type thing where I post about kink sometimes at https://crash.rocks/
Hey! Remember to wear a mask! There's a huge surge right now, so if you are going out today at around 6:30 for no particular reason, make sure to wear a good quality face-mask like an N-95 if you have one. You are not specially immune to the plague!
My friend Quinn who got discriminated against by Starbucks and lost her job has gotten it in this latest wave, having already been boosted too.
Her #GoFundMe is here if you're interested. It would be nice if she got out of quarantine and there was some good fucking news for once.
This list is incomplete; you can help by expanding it.
A friend pointed out the EFF has put out a guide for camping.
Please keep it in mind:
relationships, mental health
Saw a meme with a name and now I’m thinking about a date I went on more than six years ago with someone who was super attractive but had a laugh that fuckin activated the shit out of me bc they looked and sounded so much like someone else I’d dated so I told them I was too busy with school to go out with them again bc I thought telling the truth would be too weird
Mobile Phone Security for Activists and Agitators.
I just stumbled across this fantastic zine by @hakan_geijer, regarding surveillance and smartphones. There’s a ton of solid information here, as well as highlighting a few stubborn misconceptions. I strongly recommend everyone to read this, regardless of what your threat model or level of involvement in social movements might be.
for a long time I had a bit of a complex about how I naturally slide into “second place” in many relationship dynamics. I want to reflect. I want to support. But intentional D/s lets me convert that into something to be proud of ☺️
let me show the light u bring when things feel dark!!
trying to follow this instruction:
talk about the things you love, even if you think nobody cares.
people won't ask for it at least at first, but some of them will care
and it's attractive to see someone talk about the things they love.
let go of the notion that it's worthless if you don't get a minimum number of listeners, reactions, replies.
practice caring publicly about the things you care about.
I think this is a good reminder for me. I never liked being shy anyway
neurodivergent complaints, work
I find some small comfort in being able to call this a neurodivergent thing bc there have been several times in my life that I’ve been in this place of Cannot Do Thing I Genuinely Want To Do where I haven’t had that. It’s been really bad lately though.
Erotophobia of corporate web
Reason a zillion and one not to use corporate social media as an archive: Google deleted a university library's *entire archive of videos* for posting an interview with the creators of the lesbian magazine "On our backs" https://susiebright.substack.com/p/terminated #youtube #google #censorship #lesbian
