I'm Jason. I've done about a billion tours in the Great Internet Keyboard Wars, blogging in various places, starting out supporting atheism but realizing the atheist and skeptic communities were rife with racist, sexist, anti-trans bullshit. So I fought those folks instead.
I'm a cishetwhitedude. Mostly. I think I'm a teensy bit gay. I'm also Officially An Old. I have an anxiety disorder. And I'm pretty sure you're just humouring me if you fave my stuff.
The account of the Assam Police has been suspend from this instance.
We decided that we will not welcome cops on this instance, and we encourage the rest of the fediverse to do the same.
Following multiple reports, we decided that it's more important that our community feels safe and in security, than to be a platform for official communication.
Thank you !
good lord, what is happening in there?
peaceful repression of a violent extremist ideology
puh-peaceful repression? with heavily armed police, throwing canisters of tear gas, aimed entirely within groups of unarmed protesters?
...may i demonstrate against this blatant display of police brutality?

swallow your instinctual superiority, pick an okay candidate, do a little canvassing, and show up to the polls. and do all this with the knowledge that it's just one arena among many

leftists need to be willing to acknowledge that in boxing the point isnt knowing how to throw a punch, but how to take a punch
every smug online leftist who has never left their house can point out "voting is reformism!"
yes. no shit. the best you can ever hope to do with voting is to put a reformist in office. that's not a win. so dont hang your hopes on it. dont pour all of your energy into it.
but just because a fight cant be won doesnt mean it's not worth showing up to.
voting is obviously important because fascists spend inexpressible sums of money on it. it clearly matter. and it's an arena that we will never win in.
but losing a battle which costs you little really isnt much to sacrifice to buy yourself a little breathing room

My triggers aren’t conditional. They still happen when the joke is funny. They still happen when I like the person who made the post. They still happen when the post is important. They still happen when I agree with the post. Cws aren’t optional. You do not get to decide that your post is important enough to ruin someone’s night. It is not up to you.
