Plenty of people have been banned for slurs. You aren't special. Tbh you're starting to seem like just a shitty person right now.

That last one has to be either sarcasm or aimed at you because I've never seen a fascist here who didn't get their ass kicked and banned within a couple of days.

Secondly, the people here tend to be very well read and if you can't tolerate criticism of your precious philosophy, then no, you're not going to enjoy it here.

Um, you know you can be a communist...and an anarchist, right? The two aren't mutually exclusive. Most communists I've encountered are also anarchists so maybe you should cut this "anarkiddie" shit out.

Also I don't believe for a second that you've gotten DMs from people who support you. lol

I'm not that up to date with race politics, I still have a lot of reading to do, but the way it was explained that made sense to me is that racism isn't simply prejudice against someone's race, but prejudice along with the power to act on that prejudice in a way that is supported by society in some way or built into the way things are done. You can be prejudiced but not racist, if you don't have the power to oppress those who you are prejudiced against.

You also have to look at why people say "white people are scum" vs "black people are scum." When people say the first, it's probably because of that disappointment/resentment/whatever that society has been built around these people and they themselves aren't doing anything to correct that. When people say "black people are scum," however, that comes from a very different place. It's the belief that black people are inherently inferior somehow, that they don't deserve the respect we give others because they're inherently lesser. They might sound the same but their meanings are different.

I won't lie, there are probably some people who do hate white men, but I don't think they're the majority at all. I'd say most people who state the things you're concerned about are just cautious of white men, if not resentful that a great deal of the world has been built around them and that they can present a danger to the rest of us, but they don't hate you. I don't speak for everyone, but it's probably more disappointment than hate.

I think the other day I made a comment to a cis male troll that his opinions on gender would never be relevant. I don't know if that's a comment you saw, but either way, when I made that comment, it wasn't meant as a personal insult to all cis males, but rather a statement that they generally don't have a lot of new perspective when it comes to gender. You, as an individual, may have some insight I haven't heard before into your own gender or gender in general, but that's not usually the case when the world was built for cis male supremacy for a long time.

When people say stuff like "male = fragility" or "cis men's opinions aren't relevant" it's both a way to blow off steam and an acknowledgement that the world generally serves those perspectives and not our own.

My ass. It is completely arrogant to come into a place, ask for a history, and then demand specific evidence as if the person who answered you was on trial. This isn't a court. If there were a decision to be made on the basis of this evidence, that would be one thing, but that's not the case. We're not deciding some community measure here, and if Hyolobrika is anything like the other rationalitybros I've seen over the years, they're only here to masturbate to their own perceived intelligence.

Edit: I don't think I've made my point well in the above paragraph so let me state it outright: it's fucking rude to expect someone to stop and do the work of putting specific evidence in front of you when they're not making any arguments.

Unfortunately, no. I would if I had a group of like minded individuals to team up with, but there aren't any in my area, as far as I know. I have no experience in organizing so I don't want to start one out of fear of both fucking it up and drawing attention to myself.

I've wanted to be a part of some recentish protests but my anxiety and the fact that I would be going on my own has scared me away.

There is one group of organizers I've heard about in a town an hour away, but I haven't heard good things about them and other anti-fascist groups have denounced them, so I haven't checked them out.

I wouldn't know how to classify my mom, tbh. She votes solidly Dem and hates Trump yet believes poor people shouldn't get assistance beyond two years (because that's the estimated time to complete a technical degree for a full time student), even if they have kids.

She also thinks Native Americans are poor and marginalized because they cling to their cultures too much. This is a white woman who believes she has Cherokee ancestry and has a collection of Native American themed items and books on fake Indiginous spirituality, because she fetishizes their cultures while expecting them to abandon it for money. She makes me pretty sick.

Idk my dad, so your guess is as good as mine.

I've gotten a breast reduction surgery, which actually happened before I realized I was non-binary, but it's made binding possible, whereas it really wasn't before. I don't know if I'll have a complete top surgery, I'm a little torn on it, but I definitely want my uterus out.

Alex Jones wasn't censored, you dumb shits. He posted his bullshit on websites knowing their terms of service and he chose to violate them. If the government demanded they be taken down, then we could talk about censorship. You are not owed a platform on someone else's medium.

How come you shits only ever bitch about right-wingers free speech? I have never once in my life seen someone who defends right-wingers complain about the right's attempts to suppress left-wing speech. You're completely disingenuous and we see right through you.

These are beautiful and really freakin' accurate. Looking at them after having glasses for a little over a decade, I wonder how I got along without them at all. My eyesight started to go bad in the third grade and really declined in the fourth. It happens so gradually that you don't notice a difference so I didn't realize I couldn't see. I didn't get glasses until 7th grade and even colors looked different because they weren't all blurred together. Looking at trees for the first time with glasses and being able to see individual leaves was amazing to me.

I already told you we don't need you to translate for us. The fact that you continue to argue even though the people in this thread, some of which are trans, have told you to knock it off is disrespectful.

I haven't even mentioned the implied assertion that we should just take cis people in good faith but I think I will now. Cis people don't deserve that and doing so can be dangerous for the most marginalized of us. If I just give a cis person the benefit of the doubt when they say skeevey things, it could end up badly for me if I am ever put in a vulnerable position, even moreso for other trans people. Cis people have not earned the right to have the benefit of the doubt and they will not get it from me.
