don't armchair diagnose abuse perps
YouTube recommended me a video "narcissist, sociopath, psychopath: how to spot the difference" and i just. no.
first: why the term psychopath is ableist and racist. https://www.bgdblog.org/2014/01/racist-ableist-use-term-psychopath/
second: it does not matter what is causing someone to abuse you. you can give people the tools to recognize and resist abuse tactics without armchair diagnosing anyone (which would increase violence against people with personality disorders)

If there are any #fediverse denizens who are in the eastern Carolinas and have nowhere to evacuate to, I can probably house about three people in #ColumbiaSC (in close quarters) for a few days.

Don't plan any illegal stuff online at all! There are no channels that are truly secure from the government. Your phone isn't safe. Alexa isn't safe. The only civil action I've done was discussed in person, with people I knew, in a room that had been cleared of electronics. (It's over, no danger of arrest.)

masto.jews.international is a Mastodon instance for Jews to conspire, socialize, and debate together. This is intended to be a pluralistic space, but it is also an internationalist, anti-capitalist, anti-racist and pro-diaspora community. Nationalistic, racist, and classist perspectives will not be welcome.
