the point is that the context is unimportant. it still perpetuates harm, disrespectfully proclaiming that you get to decide if something is actually harmful. again, you don't get to make that decision. impact is impact regardless of intent.

i honestly hope that you find a way to develop some empathy. because you're just making excuses to perpetuate harm in ways thai impacted people have said hurts them.

i get what you mean but again, the use of that language isn't welcome here. there are other ways to phrase that so as to not use the word that I'm asking not be used.

when people who are impacted by language ask us to cease the use of the language because they say that it harms them, it isn't a great response to say that the context of what you were trying to say (which could be expressed any number of ways that don't use that particular word) matters more than the harm they say presents itself with the use of that language. disability advocates and activists have asked that we avoid use of terms that they consider harmful even when it isn't in direct reference as an insult. so on raddle this is what we do because to fully respect the autonomy of someone is to listen when they say they're harmed, and do what we need to to avoid being a source of the perpetuation of that harm.

I'm in a strangely good place today. I'm going to chalk it up to the placebo effect bc i just had my first session with my therapist.

going to do some work for make total distroy this weekend, I'm excited about that. hoping to get to fnb too. and i am hoping to jump on the nihilist chat also too. i haven't been to either for a while.

I deleted my facebook account several years ago and I've felt so much better since. I miss being able to see what's going on with people's lives but really I could contact them if I wanted to know how they're doing.

it emphasizes how final that point is. NO DISCUSSION. THE END. I AM THE PRESIDENT AND IF I WANT TO SUPPORT A GENOCIDE I WILL, THERE WILL BE NO PUSHING ME LEFT ON THIS.

because it's so good.

a buddy told me there's a "make total distro" out in New Orleans.

i don't really care if other distros are named that. lots of things have the same name, we're not business entities, you know? no one's going to sue me for copyright infringement.

thank you <3

the venue is like really close to my place so if i was just going there and back i think it would have been better but i gave a ride to a friend that is staying 30 minutes away so i had to take them back so i didn't get home until an hour later. i'm ok on 6 hours of sleep, but not 5.

sorry to hear that things are awkward with your family. that's always uncomfortable.

good luck on your planning!
