hello, assorted lovelies! your favourite (we hope!) chimerical girls here, new to #weirderearth but not new to fedi
we dwell in the world's out-of-the-way, easily overlooked places, appreciating the beauty that grows only there
we are here primarily for weirdness positivity, and you can look forward to plenty of posts about that, along with our love for darkness, the night, shadows, and liminality
and maybe some occasional anxietyposting
the rest is in our bio <3
"performative wokeness" Show more
Let's eliminate, for the moment, the accusations that come from conservatives, who are arguing in bad faith, as always. When a person of an oppressed identity complains of it, what are we afraid of when we talk about "performative wokeness" or "ally theater"? Well, an argument could be made that we are afraid of insincerity, and fair weather friends, people who are only pretending anti-Racism or anti-Oppression for the moment, when there are (debatably) significant social rewards for doing so. We are afraid that when a truly crucial moment comes, they will abandon these principles in favor of white supremacy or heteronormativity, which they already have benefited from as white people or cishets.

this rant brought to you by the news article series going around in which big journalism outlets fastidiously investigate whether a crowd of jeering maga-hat teens jeering at and physically intimidating an indigenous elder are in fact racist jackholes or just poor misunderstood white boys
it is absolutely impossible to credulously give *any* benefit of doubt to a crowd of white people wearing maga gear, sorry

"make america great again" is inextricably tied up with racism, sexism, islamophobia, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, anti-semitism, and just run of the mill fascism
that this link is *implicit* rather than *explicit* is a design feature, because fascists are *cowards*
we will straight-up call anyone repping maga *all* of the things above even if it is possible they are only two or three of them

in short, who and what we are is fairly simple:
we are a group of sisters
a group of sisters bound together in a very profound way, perhaps
but also: bound together by a profound love for each other
having grown up as close to each other as we have, surviving any number of horrors together, always having each others' support no matter what the outside world has in store for us
*that* is who we are.

probably the single most important thing about this event is that it brought all of these people together so that we could see we are not alone, that we do not struggle in isolation, that even where our demographics divide, solidarity exist and there are people who have our backs
this is a thing that so many of us struggle with; such a strong showing so early in the year sends a powerful message to people direly in need of it
so grateful that this happened, it is such a big deal
