And now that I haven’t started my fediverse journey by basically revealing everything about myself in an attempt to preemptively beg for mercy, it would be seen as a lie to do so now. Right? Or is this just my anxiety talking?
Remember that time on tumblr when people deleting their accounts was seen as proof of being guilty unless they had proved they were part of a community that white allies were supposed to “defend”?
Or did I just end up adjacent to the social justice colonialism section?
Oh, I’m having flashbacks to that time on tumblr where not even doxing yourself as non-normative could save you from the white people who used cancel culture as another tool to keep up with the joneses. And all for the crime of slipping up in a social situation.
No wonder I feel like abandoning my account, the format of the masto/pleroma platforms feel like tumblr.
There's a small fandom for people who are in their 70s and are just discovering that getting it up for Jessica Rabbit and characters like her isn't illegal.

Advice like ‘you are more than your achievements!

here it is if you wanna read it. It rules.
If people stop filming cops, that's the end. People get that right? That's literally our only legal weapon against them at this point
understanding of colonial atrocities, ireland 2/2
pretty much any accurate british history is anti-english propaganda
Social anxiety and tumblr flashbacks so bad I’m abandoning the account. Not deleting because that just proves guilt.
