how do you win a fight when the enemy is a group of ultra-rich, ultra-conservative, religious death cultists from a country on the other end of the world which has been designed and ran explicitly for the benefit of these people since it's inception and has it's tendrils firmly embedded in every other country in the world and will, at the drop of a hat, use any means available to maintain that stranglehold at any cost?
i have no idea and it terrifies me 😿

a while ago i mentioned how i really disliked the changes that were made to the esperanto course on duolingo. i've just completed the entire tree and let me say that i still stand by what i said earlier, it just doesn't work for me. but hey, i'm done now, got my golden owl back, and can just ignore it from here after
running up against the same propaganda over and over again
having to make the same points over and over again
having to deal with the same bigoted nonsense
trying to get through to people about why they should be decent humans who care about others
New #ActuallyAutistic anthology out, backed by ASAN
"This book of essays by adult-diagnosed/self-diagnosed autistic people includes pieces on burnout, passions and interests, sensory overload, and more. Essays discuss growing up undiagnosed, navigating the world as an autistic adult, and the power of learning we're autistic."
so, i'm now selling my e-books on Etsy, in case people don't want to sign up at Smashwords but already have an Etsy
the thing is, unlike Smashwords, Etsy doesn't let you set your own price. but, here you go if interested: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TreasonBoutique
i am planning to start putting together hand-made print books when i get the money, time, and spoons, and that will be the perfect place for them!
capitalism Show more
leafblowers are the pinnacle of capitalist wastefulness. they do a piss poor job, create abysmal levels of noise pollution, & most of them run on fossil fuels. in other words, a complete non-solution and total waste of resources
(this toot was brought to you by some guy spending all afternoon making a huge racket moving some leaves around and he's still not done. also, good job on not wearing hearing protection, your ears will thank you for that, mine are hurting and i'm far away...)

it shows in the replies, both in comments and in blogs that try to call that BS in, but to no avail. it shouldn't be like this, but it's struggle.
love and support your disabled autistic self-advocates. they're doing real work.
if you like my toots, or my writing, or whatever, please feel free to support me in any of the following ways

CW: academic shit
Melanie Yergeau has an entire discourse around how autie things that are presumed "meaningless" are deeply meaningful, regardless of whether they map to NT definitions of rhetoric or not, or if they are seemingly rhetorical at all, or not.
"Everything is rhetoric", when its used as a means to privilege allistic rhetorics over autistic ones, is a form of discrimination.

if i send an email asking for basic information or a simple question, don't fucking reply asking for my phone number so you can call me, just write the fucking answer down and send that.
what makes it extra aggravating is that this is an alleged autism "expert". not like it's common for autistic people to have trouble talking or processing audio right /s
"Kindness is the most punk thing there is" is a sentiment I strongly either agree or disagree with depending on its use
"Our resistance should be based on compassionately providing aid to others" 👍
"Why do you need to tangibly oppose our oppressors when you can just smile at strangers or pay it forward at Starbucks :)" 👎👎👎👎👎👎👎
No one takes women’s rage seriously. We should express it on our own terms, with gasoline and a match.
