Ughh getting off topic but white ppl miss out on the experience of being awkward teen talking about wanting to cosplay and asking my grandma how to sew kimono and some ladies from lunch bringing me some of their old kimono and then getting embarrassed and stumbling about how THIS IS A COSTUME and then getting sent home with hand me down kimono anyway because oh my god Asian gifting culture.

My grandmother gave all of her children white ppl names and even white middle names. She fought my mother to give me a Japanese name even though I would grow up to be the white child of the family.

I don't know how to put into words what intergenerational trauma is for my family, but I sure as hell respect my elders to make sure they rest even more for all the hurt they have endured.

Folks outside of chinatowns don't get the lovely shit that happen there? I hung out at an elder community center a lot as a kid with my grandma where we made meals for elders in the community.

I thought it was the normal thing until I had white friends in high school talk about their grandparents. Like they just throw their elders away into nursing homes?

ableism, medical negligence and discrimination 

@junebug I have a loved one with an ASD diagnosis and their recent establishishing appointment was humiliating. They got it as a child and can't get it off their chart even though they're not going to get any care that needs to be billed for ASD.

The medical abuse has made them avoid care for chronic pain/fatigue and migraines so,,, yeah validating your decision.

/dw about replying

transphobia, dumbshit cis β€œanarchist” bs 

@diqqun damnnn wtf. Like what cognition gymnastics did they do? Its censorship to choose not to support the labor of transphobic organizations? This is environmental activism jfc. We know transphobes cling to colonial ideals of gender and will further anti-indigenous violence to be transphobic. Enviromental activism that refuses to dismantle colonial power and repatriating indigenous land and life is just green-colored colonizers.

there's a lot of pressure in certain, i would like to say mostly online, queer spaces to cordon non-binary people into only having certain types of relationships to the gender binary; and it sucks deep ass, moreso because it's often nonbinary people doing it

the scrotum IS labia and vice versa. the clitoris IS a penis and vice versa. the prostate IS Skene's glands and vice versa. ovaries ARE testicles and vice versa.

said another way, there are scrotolabial folds which can develop into a fused or non-fused form, or even be incompletely fused. intermediate forms for the same organ which develops into both "the prostate" and "Skene's glands" exist. gonads have two primary adult morphs, but plenty of people's endocrine systems are "sex-intermediate"

it's so interesting that people today will hear about the single-sex theory that was prevalent in Medieval European thought and laugh about it, as if that's such a silly idea

instead of, you know, being essentially the modern interpretation of the embryological evidence of sex differentiation in humans

@junebug okay! I've decided that I'm going to refrain from DMs over insta and leave interactions to posts and try to keep Mastodon interactions to retoots with minimal replies. Take care and stay safe πŸ’•πŸŒ»

Sharing on behalf of a friend, a Latinx trans woman in Houston who's fundraising for HRT and gender-affirming surgery. Would appreciate if you can donate and boost. Thanks πŸ’œ

if you think that coercively locking people up for harmless behaviors you think are weird isn't ableism, I invite you to read literally anything about the history of mental institutions

Talking about blood pressure and recovery ~good vibes~

This is the first time in 6 weeks of EDIOP I have had stellar vitals (last week was borderline orthostatic)

It feels rally good to have a cardiovascular system that isnt screaming at me all the time πŸ’œπŸ’œ

psa please do not censor slurs or common triggers (e.g. sl*r). on fedi. you're doing more harm than good cause people who do not want to see these words at all can filter these words from their timeline entirely, but that will be bypassed if you censor.

Yeah maining one gender is good, but using only that gender just isn't viable in the current meta. You'll need some side genders too if you wanna stay competitive

Any time you see something like "first transgender woman to do X," or "first transgender man to do Z," consider that they're actually likely the first *openly* transgender person to do that. We're everywhere & always have been.

@junebug oh question! I've slid into your dms on insta with story replies a few times. I realize that I haven't put a *this isnt meant to start a convo I just wanted to let you* disclaimer. Would that help at all or would you prefer if I avoid those sorts of DMs?
