Hey friends, sorry I haven't been the most present. Life's been a bit much atm <3

Sex work stuff 

But because of stigma and posts like these, trans women doing sex work have an even harder time. Make porn an ethical industry, support actors, stop consuming it for free on sites that steal and redistribute (all the free ones), pay for it, but don't fight against its existence. That's only hurting already marginalized folx further.

Sex work stuff 

Just saw a "porn is bad, don't watch glorified violence" and ??? Don't be anti sex work friends. Rather, support empowering sex workers better by decriminalizing and destigmatizing it. There are plenty of ethical porn distributors (crashpad etc) that are worth supporting.

Also friends, remember swerfs and terfs go hand in hand; if you hate one you hate the other. Because of legal restrictions and the fetishization of our bodies, sex work is often all trans women have access too.

Hey francophones, what nb pronouns are used there? I have a friend studying romance languages who's interested

*nails to the door of idk some local church a 95-toot thread about how communities both grow and are waaaay easier to blanket recommend to friends and acquaintence and randos if the most vulnerable/marginalized are protected. because after they're gone, many silently without a word bc afraid of even ppl on their side blaming them, you're next. (no really, look at vine, or Twitter. best content by volume was often multiply marginalized ppl even tho they aren't a plurality on the site afaics)*

subtoot 

you're good and you will figure this all out somehow

Remember there are no triceratops only doceratops and donotaceratops

@Akatookey The criminal justice system has been coopted by private interests in order to provide a captive workforce for low skill labor. So deeply coded is color to crime that we accept the institutions abandoning practically all rehabilitation programs as the bias affecting the selection criteria self-reinforces in a vicious cycle that encourages recidivism.

Erm, I mean...

*glazes eyes*
So... institutional racism is like... the paper around the joint? Whoa. #420 #Tokin'
