other groups have matted their hair but it's not the same thing, and shouldn't be called the same thing. i'm having some trouble finding the images now, but years ago i did a deep dive and found photos of what indian and irish matted hair looks like. neither looks anything like black dreadlocks do, since they didn;t use products to manipulate their hair texture to mimic ours.
fediverse meta, pol, be on your guard
- trumpian fash being banned on neolib social media and looking for new online spaces
- strange bots posing as trans women and reposting popular reddit content
- upsurge of kiwifarms pleroma activity
it seems like the fedi is an unsafer space as of now, and that (more than usual) one shouldn't assume good faith just because somebody has pronouns in bio and light side keywords. it's one thing to deal with tech libertarians and obvious fash trolls, another with kf infiltrators.
will be leaving my alts locked for now and using locked posts more. I'd recommend being extra careful posting any sort of exploitable content.
fundarising, help a trans woman Rojava fighter, boosts appreciated
> I’m a trans woman who was active in Zapatista activism in Mexico for many years before going to Syria to support the women’s revolution and to join the YPJ.
> The YPJ, or the Women’s Defense Units, is an all-female militia under the umbrella of the Syrian Democratic Forces, which defends the Rojava Revolution, and the Kurdish Women’s Liberation Movement.
> I was injured after 6 months. The injury requires a complex surgery to correct.
(If you want to avoid your state associating you with Rojava, I can be your intermediary for donations. I'm reachable on encrypted chats and can forward your donation with a keyword on the public log so you know it went through.)
