Hi, I'm Ember! I'm moving from social.theliturgists.com , and I'm excited to be at weirder.earth because I'm extremely weird and proud of it.

I'm currently in college studying anthropology, which is a good fit for me, because as an Autistic person I feel like I'm constantly studying people and trying to understand a culture that is foreign to me.

I also love languages and linguistics and I'm currently trying to learn French and Arabic.

lewdish, leggggs & underwear, Snake Fishnets!!! 

Childhood propaganda, religion 

I'm actually excited about writing these papers, I just wish I had more time and wasn't having to do them all at the same time. I have several more projects and papers I have to do also

Oh and for my anthropology theory class I'm gonna talk about digital anthropology and what it means to do research in online communities!

There's a lot of assumptions that "face-to-face" interactions are better and the only way to really get to know people or a community, which completely ignores communities like on here that mostly function separate from physical interaction

The due date for one of my papers got pushed back 5 days!! That's very nice

I'm gonna write a paper in French about mental health and disability in the novels we read for class and I'm gonna talk about Foucault

Tired, but finished writing a paper. Need to take a shower soonish because I never got to finish mine yesterday and then I can reread that paper and make sure it's alright before submitting it.

my gender is righteous fury and action driven by burning spite

Ember :autism: :nb_crossbow: boosted

The gender of the day is a suspicious planet.

Today's gender is a baby disagreeable whale.

Sometimes got to remind myself. It's not like, a personal failure to need help or accommodations

I'm taking some time away from Mastodon. I don't like feeling stressed or paranoid here, but pretending things are okay only works for so long. The friendly community vibe doesn't hold out knowing former mufos were enabling block evasion or screenshotting me to give material to others for mocking.

I'm still writing and now's a great time to patron me. I'm writing queer latinx fantasy and romance at patreon.com/newfire OR just make my life a little easier and tip me:

hey uh

can i get. some research help? i've gotta do a comparative essay on how queerness is portrayed in western vs. nonwestern media and i'm looking for western pieces that talk about lgbtq+ human rights in the international sphere

basically my thesis is that focusing on human rights to the exclusion of all else erases commonalities between international communities and makes things seem far more dire overseas and far less dire here than they actually are, when we're often facing similar struggles (juxtaposing US/Canada with China and Iran)
