"Finding yourself" is not really how it works. You aren't a ten-dollar bill in last winter's coat pocket. You are also not lost. Your true self is right there, buried under cultural conditioning, other people's opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs about who you are. "Finding yourself" is actually returning to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you. - Emily McDowell

transformative justice vs. punitive justice Show more
"but what is someone is ~ really bad ~?" look, stop using that as an excuse, please. it's all but a red herring, and in the cases where someone has done something requiring strong intervention (which btw, is also an institutional form of abuse in a lot of cases) the *entire point* of transformative justice is to come up with ways to allow people to address core causes, resolve conflicts, and allow people pathways to come back to the community.

Hot Accessibility Take Show more
Shaming people for not adding descriptions to their images is ableist.
Shaming people for not describing their images, while allowing people to post food, lewd, and politics on the tl un cw'd is fucking ableist.
Not making an effort to create accessibility for the people that see or want to see your stuff is fucking ableist.
But moralizing the issue and making it into black and white when it obviously isn't isn't just ableist, it's hella bad praxis.
Tip for those living in areas prone to power loss.
Keep big jugs of water in your freezer, if you have freezer space. if/when power goes out, use the fridge/freezer as little as possible, and transfer frozen water jugs to the fridge. This should help keep the temperature low enough to delay spoilage of food.
