I am not touching the kin discourse with a 10-foot-pole because I missed the whole thing, whereas I’ve seen Anna be a racist before with my own eyes (which is why I left w.l in the first place)
I’m happy to respect your identity no matter what it is, full stop, so kin are fine with me.
I just have zero energy for discourse, I’m sorry, I know that’s not going to be good enough but it is what it is
Hello! I’m Madeline and I’ve started a new account over here at Awoo. I’m a big gay cat person but I do not hate dogs (so Red please don’t kick me off your instance). I post about whatever nonsense enters my head, because it’s fun. You’ll probably see the occasional music, game, politics, and sadpost amongst my detritus. I like to write and hike and shit.
You know what I'm talking about.
You talk to your racist grandma, and you just awkwardly smile and nod, because you know it's WORTHLESS to talk to her about why she can't call POC the "coloreds" anymore.
But you tell your friend on here, "Hey, comrade, that was in bad taste"
Why? Because you know your friend will listen.
That's what we are trying to do with you.
it's a sign of respect, not of hatred. Please stop acting like we hate you.
Important thing for all who can see this.
If someone confronts you on your racism or sexism... that means that they like you enough and trust you enough to hear and listen.
If they didn't think you were redeemable, if they didn't think you were worth it, they would roll their eyes and just avoid you. Block on sight, shut down in conversation.
If we confront you about it, no matter how bruskly it may seem. It means that we legitimately think you are better.
