I love #folklore and folk #horror, #mythology, #comics, and #cute #pure little ponies in slightly twisted #faerie tales with a bit of #feminist patriarch thrashing. I'm rooted in the #80s and I think I might’ve grown up in #Scarfolk but escaped… somehow. This is my strange, safe little #nostalgia place now.
me, aromantic, watching a romcom: this is so silly. they should just communicate properly. all their funny problems would be gone. its just ridiculous
as white people working towards race treason and against whiteness, it's helpful to have specific things that make us stop mid-train of thought and ask, "wait a minute, am I being racist about this?"
For instance, if we find ourselves getting angry at a Black person for their "ego, arrogance, bragging" or "presumptiveness," we are almost certainly being racist about it. whiteness and white people have a problem with Black self-worth, self-knowledge, and self-assertion. this is well-established.
we need to check the voices in our heads that get indignant when Black people claim things for themselves, claim their own work, accomplishments, and strengths, and do so in the way that they choose and without apology. those voices are anti-Black conditioning, plain and simple.
And when we check that voice, and it argues with us, providing reasons for our knee-jerk rejection of Black selfhood: Good. That's useful. We can learn by interrogating those rationalizations and those assumptions.

Fuck, I was right. Throwing everyone's sacrifices and willingness to cooperate for the common good under the bus like that. Lockdown's over lads, do whatever you want cos it's unenforceable now innit.
Fuck the lot of them. Fuck this particular bunch of rank-closing corrupt tories, and fuck the tories generally and their hideous I-got-mine attitudes.
I can still smell my favourite childhood museum when I pronounce the word in my head
