#SayTheirNames

a point of annoyance regarding a certain author and how white people ruin "cancel culture" 

JK Rowling was racist and antisemitic before she came out as a TERF, and white people really will forgive absolutely any and everything until it comes for them particularly

So it grinds my gears that people are like "We shall not speak of a certain transphobic author" when

y'all spoke endlessly of her when she was "just" racist and antisemitic h o n e s t l y

please only vote if you are a BIPoC and have experienced persistent harassment on the fediverse

imagine your instance had a feature where your mods and mods from other instances could quickly and easily share block/bans across fedi, to more rapidly and thoroughly respond to toxic behavior, and to combat users who ban evade by switching instances

would you feel overall safer on the fediverse? would you want to use fedi more or more often?

everyone please boost :boost_ok: 🙏

You get zero points in Jewish culture for having the right beliefs or attitudes if you don't apply them to action. That really puts a damper on keyboard activism.

So an aspect of Judaism that massively helps political organizing is that Jewish culture, as a general rule, couldn't give a damn about why a person did a right thing. What matters is the right thing was done.

I know that for me it really motivated me into the streets.

In general, please don’t use ableist words (e.g. “crazy”, “insane”) to describe current events but ESPECIALLY don’t call the cops mentally ill.

This is about equating mental illness with systemic violent racist abuse. Don’t do it.

Hi there! My name is Zoé, I'm new to Mastodon and also don't have any contacts using this 😭 (hope to lure them here at some point, though). Do you have any recommendations for instances I could join about permaculture, artists on sustainability, zero waste, veganism, zine makers? Thanks a lot!! 😍

Does anybody know Arab/Imazighen LGBTI people on the fediverse I could follow? :boost_ok:

ableism, mental health stigma, ref to violence, what is evil 

There is this crazy popular idea today that evil=mental illness. 'Anyone who does that is mentally ill' is the common refrain when people hear about something they consider evil and could not conceive of doing themselves.

And that's not how evil works. That's not how bad actors happen.

Blaming mental illness for people doing horrible things just hurts mentally ill people -- and we are hurt enough with out that, thank you very much.
