Allow me to #introduction myself.
Frater Gorgias, aka spookyboi, I’m here to shitpost and chew bubblegum...and I’m all out of shitposts.
I’m a 30ish cis-het guy (he/him/y’all). I work at a university as a researcher on terrorist propaganda and internet identity. I’m in a triad relationship with 2 people I love to death, and I’m an unabashed pinko commie soyboi libcuck.
If you follow me you’ll get a lot of memes, political talk, bad takes, bad bits, and links to things I love to hate.
My boyfriend [20 M] won’t stop calling me [20 F] (his girlfriend) “dad”
There are three and ONLY three kinds of academic tweets:
1. Precarity sucks
2. So very delighted to announce that...
3. A THREAD
White woman intervenes when a racist white lady harasses 2 Hispanic women for speaking Spanish in the store saying that they should be speaking English in America.
Kamira Trent not only spoke up and defended these 2 women but got the racist lady harassing them arrested
If you see Xenophobia, Islamophobia, Racism, Misogyny, Homophobia CALL IT OUT.
You shouldn't have to be a Mexican, Immigrant, Muslim, Black, Woman, or Gay to do that.
Speak out against HATE because HATE in all its forms is WRONG. It will never and can't ever be right.
Speaking in your native tongue in this moment at this time is an act and form of RESISTANCE. Keep speaking your native tongue in public and DO NOT LET ANYONE TELL YOU THAT YOU CAN'T!!!
In a racist society BE KAMRIA TRENT. This is advocacy and allyship we could use more of. This is how you use your privilege.
(Also, If you don't know a Muslim or have one as a friend, more than welcome to follow me. Trying to dispel Muslim stereotypes and End the hate. One Love)
Student loans are a mean by which poor and working class people are held hostage by a financial system for trying to better their lives. #cancelstudentloandebt
gen x'er: what kind of music do you like?
xbox: oh you mean like techno?

Contextualising =/= citing dusty scholars
Hey this is smart
“I have five theses I want to nail to the church door”. @email@example.com kicks off #TASMConf with keynote.
It is GOOD to repurpose/rewrite/reinterpret theory outside of institutional contexts!
It is NOT GOOD to completely decontextualise it without giving your readers any means to expand their understanding of it outside of your twitter thread!
Moving update: Diogenes had the correct number of possessions
You know what's a real bummer? I do smoke weed, I do casually play video games, and I do love dressing as the Joker
But I had no idea this meme existed, I have no interest in being a part of it, and it's really sad how unoriginal most people are https://twitter.com/pearlhouzuki/status/1143245637317726209

Me: oh god we're gonna die
Bf: i have to tell you something

Joe Biden (yelling from first class): folks with my final breaths i have to say that strom thurmond and i disagreed on some things but he was a mighty cordial golf player
Just some guy who reads books about dead Greeks and writes about terrorism and the internet for a living
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
