There's not a single worthwhile thing transphobes and homophobes can do, that queer people can't do better.

We can write better stories.

We can lead with more heart.

We can understand other groups and nations with more compassion.

We can build more ethical businesses.

We don't need them. And we're not second-best.

re: Money request, short on rent 

If anyone needs to know, our shortfall is about $300 left. And I am looking for second jobs. 🤞​

Money request, short on rent 

Hi all,

Hate to do this, but still trying to put together enough hours at the new gigs to survive, and the roommate isn't working as many restaurant hours as she thought she'd be.

We're at the "getting tense notices" phase of shortness of rent, and I'd really, really appreciate any help you could spare, at all. Thanks.

Boosts are very welcome.

Reach out to your trans friends, too. Things like this feel gutting, and love is welcome.

Also, I encourage every one of you to sign this petition to replace the statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee with Oderus Urungus.

It's gotten like 28,000 signatures in one day.

Jefferson Davis statue on Monument Avenue in Richmond was pulled down by protesters last night.

Sic semper tyrannis.

Two down, three to go.

Does someone still have the link to that huge google doc of trans/nonbinary/etc musicians that someone on mastodon started ages ago?

trans men are men. notice the sentence reads 'men', not 'white men'.

perhaps in your discussions of us, of me, you can remember not to erase my blackness

as important as it is to acknowledge my movement through this world as a man and all the social implications of that, you cannot separate my race from my manhood. they are not building blocks you get to dismantle and observe independent of one another.

the concept of trans men moving into positions of power and privilege by transitioning is embarrassing

the last two weeks re: protests have hopefully highlighted to people that for some trans men, the main place they're moving is into the gun sights of the police

Multiple racist accounts, BLM "trutherism", troll-ass attitudes.

Even with all the eyes of the world on them, US cops can't stop killing and maiming people, ramming cars into crowds, shooting at nurses and journalists, pepper spraying kids and pregnant women... Not just a few cops, not just one department, but systematically across the US. ACAB

Hey folks, friendly ask that transphobia be CW'd.

I know a particular asshole is trending, and I just can't even with her shit today.

Lee statue's coming down as soon as possible, per the governor's press conference just now.

I might be leaking a couple tears.

NYPD is tiring. Listening to police scanners last night proved as much. Their frantic, exasperated voices showed that have the equipment, but not the stamina. If you're going out to demonstrate, keep from getting boxed in and dispersed. Make them get their cardio workout in.

Don't.
Use.
#Zoom.
Just.
Don't.

“Free users for sure we don’t want to give that [end-to-end encryption] because we also want to work together with FBI, with local law enforcement in case some people use Zoom for a bad purpose” - Eric Yuan, CEO.

1/2 Didn't realise until now but a lot of Angela Davis's work is available to read for free online, if you are not able to get a physical copy. She's a very clear writer I think and easy to get to grips with even if this kind of writing is new to you. Links: Are Prisons Obsolete? collectiveliberation.org/wp-co
