SINCE WHEN TF DID YT CISGAY BOOMERS FIND A WAY TO REINCARNATE INTO THE BODIES OF YT AF TRANS FOLK BORN IN THE 2000s
this here is the admin of a shitty instance called """honey.church"""
@patience i'm assuming it's some variant on transmedicalism/truscum bs, but i'd like to know as well, because same
@shoutcacophony and yet, they include this
@patience "no terfs or truscum! unless they don't like people i don't like, in which case...maybe? i dunno"
@patience why do i get the impression that this is born out of some people being way, *way* too "peak online"? not just online all the time (because guilty as charged), but in some way that would implode in on itself in any other context
including online ones

@patience "i've decided that i'll only associate with people who are:
between 5'8" and 5'9" (don't you dare try to sneak in the metric system, i see you)
only have brown colored eyes. sorry, green-eyed people
no pixie cuts! only shoulder length hair or longer
sorry, i don't make the rules that i just made up"
@shoutcacophony thing is, the "peak ___" trope all derives from "peak oil", which was a capitalist fear that the "good times" had already rolled by
and now, i can only hear cis women clutching pearls (they own many), and in their anglo accent, cry "PEAK TRANS!" and at this point, i don't know what peak they're talking about anymore unless they're referring to this 1970s peak
@patience it does? (i know the peak oil business) i'd always heard as "excessively <thing>", not as othering, but more like "jumping the shark" among people who share identity/community. cis women picking up on it (or white people, abled people, etc.) to be shitty, though...yikes
@shoutcacophony i get "jumping the shark". "peak-anything" doesn't have impact in any meaningful way, because all i think it a line graph that everything thereafter the declaration is projected to fall. with life experiences, that model just doesn't resonate with my brain, idk
@patience no worries. i've seen it in context enough that i sort of have a feel for it, even as i'm not sure exactly what it's referring to, lol. yay, empty signifiers
@patience huh. i wonder if there's a point where it made the leap from "riffing off of peak oil, sarcastically" to being more generic. it feels like it might've. hmmm
@shoutcacophony all i know is this is where i am rn… just on this side of ready to tooting this
@shoutcacophony i'm so tired
@patience :/ relatable
@patience what does "dechets" mean?
@shoutcacophony french for "trash" (sorry i live in a bilingual canadian province which isn't new brunswick or québec)
@patience oh ok, i thought it was dec+hets lol
decimal/binary het-like unfortunateness
@shoutcacophony "het, like unfortunateness" hahahahaha this has made my day
@shoutcacophony i'm sitting in my chair, but i'm getting pretty close to

@ghost i mean, also putting this out there:
boy-kids on the fucking schoolyard during recess would scream, "SMEAR THE QUEER! [deadname]’s IT!" every other goddamned day & i got "smeared" way too much
but you know what? they were right about my queerness. i embraced that shit when i voiced as trans in my teens & then came out as a dyke back in my early 20s. and i'm heckin’ not gonna let a bunch of white trans (and cis) 21st'ers repeat that old whinge by yt cisgays old enough to be my parents
