Hi! I'm a 30 years old, demisexual and demiromantic man. I just started studying Swedish at college, with the goal of becoming an interpreter. (So exciting!) My hobbies include video and board , and learning. I play the piano, and will be purchasing a double bass soon. Sometimes, I study .

covid-19 is not an equal opportunity killer. black folks are being disproportionally affected and have massively higher fatality rates than other poc and white folks. why? because systemic institutionalized racism is embedded in every aspect of american culture. black folks are more likely to be essential workers in city centers, deal with housing insecurity, lack health insurance, and have conditions that have comorbidity with covid-19. this is not just a pandemic, this is a massacre.

Pretty sure I'm just paraphrasing @Are0h as I say this–SO many fedi situations crop up when a privileged person is met w/a lack of expected deference, is shocked to recognise fraudulent social capital built on intimidation is no good in real situations, is immediately outraged at the implication they might not be the superior of their interlocutor. Can we–white, cis male, financially stable &c–PLEASE do some introspection & get a handle on ourselves. Stop polluting the TL w/your unexamined ego.

pretty cool that bram stoker was gay, defacto making every single straight vampire inaccurate and illegal

please do not comment on someone’s non-sexual post with some kind of sexual remark (even if it’s a joke) unless you are close enough where this is an established part of your relationship. i see this happening more and more lately and it’s rather creepy and upsetting

Does anyone live near Northglenn Colorado? A friend of mine is currently trapped in a very abusive and dangerous living situation and the only way she can be safe is if someone is willing to take her in. She's in serious danger, someone please help.

identifying men who wear make/up nail polish or crossdress, etc as "probably closeted women or enbies" is incredibly destructive to trans men imo

Jim Bean boosted

to suggest that gnc behavior from men is *innately female* or is a precursor to coming out as femme, particularly when you have no way of knowing the agab of the man in question, is /incredibly/ invalidating for trans men to hear. especially when we, as a community, perform those gnc behaviors at much higher rates than most cis male communities

Big Oil is using the Pandemic to push KeystoneXL:

"On Tuesday, TC Energy announced it was moving workers from across America into place in states along the pipeline route – although local reporters in Montana discovered they’d actually begun arriving 48 hours earlier, narrowly beating the state imposition of a quarantine.

On Thursday, JP Morgan Chase announced that it was leading a $1.25bn bond issue for TC Energy.

So here’s how it shakes out:

1) The oil industry is flying in workers from across America to rural states with already strained health care systems, at a moment when all Americans have been asked to shelter in place, and pretending that they are “essential” employees in order to build a pipeline that would carry oil no one wants or needs, and which would go a long way toward wrecking the planet’s climate system.

2) The work is being done on the edges of many Indian reservations – endangering a group of people who, over the centuries, have endured 90% population losses from introduced epidemics, and who are suffering horrible losses already from this one. As Faith Spotted Eagle of the Yankton Sioux put it on Wednesday, “this causes eerie memories for us [of] the infected smallpox blankets that were distributed to tribes intentionally”.

3) It is difficult to escape the conclusion that the oil industry is acting decisively now because it knows this is the one moment when protesters can’t make themselves heard. Those 30,000 trained volunteers represent one of the great nonviolent armies in American history, willing to suffer to protect the planet – but they are moral human beings who will not risk taking microbes into prisons with them, and endanger prisoners crowded together in impossible conditions."
