I'm definitely pointing my finger directly at LGBTQ folk who co-opt the slogan to have "[Flavor of Queer] Lives Matter" even though the queer community is fucking TERRIBLE to Black folk and will pitch a fit if you remind them that we'd be NOTHING without Black activists.

if you're white and you use the internet, you have a duty to ensure that the spaces you are in are not a safe space for white supremacists. no, "oh but I like this person and they've never done anything in MY group" -- listen to us. listen to what we have to say. report people to the mods or if it's an ongoing problem, *leave the fucking group and let people know why you're leaving*.

make mods explain their decisions. make it uncomfortable. make it weird.

it's the LEAST you can do.

Ranking ways that people avoid saying they by oder of best to worst:

he or she // a classic, timeless
he/she // same as above except it sounds like that slur
s/he // efficient, just as many characters as they tho
she or he // if you're gonna try to be feminist about it just say they
he (or she) // bro what are you even doing
she // again I get it you're trying to be cool and feminist, just use they
he // only barely valid if you're a textbook from before 1970 and even then fuck you
