Over the u/curious incedent, from my understanding, people were upset at me for downplaying the hurt caused by a transphobe in favor of asking Galdra to not use slurs/KYS.

They are upset at me for needlessly mocking/strawmanning primitivists through memes.

They are upset at me for speaking out of line on trans and sex work issues. All of that I understand.

I have no anarchists/leftists that I talk to apart from the reddit sphere. My understanding of anarchy has come from reddit. I know that many of you consider reddit toxic and liberal/apologetic. That is where my anarchist education has come from, along with books much older than myself, leaving me unknowledgeable about some subjects. I also abstain from social media and do not interact with other leftist LGBT folk often. I was and am learning. I know my mistakes. I have apologised to Galdra on every occasion-- I do not often see eye to eye to her, but will never again speak down to her (or speak of "concerns").

Lurking through old threads did leave me wondering about Raddle, but again, I was not there. I just wanted to know what was up with the alts. And yes. I made one myself. I made it because I wanted to be seen as my "true self", moving on from the cishet label mouse had, as I recently discovered within myself that it is not who I am. But I was still an asshole. If I ever post on raddle again, it will be in a much more controlled, quiet, and respectful manner. I do not want to make anyone unsafe.
