I'm just really thankful that I ended up following a path that normalized increasingly radical acts of idealism and love before anything else.

But it's so scary to take a radical stance, because everyone pushing any envelope thinks they're the good guy

like, when your entire world since birth has been enforcing white supremacy, patriarchy, homophobia and transphobia, you believe that's the truth of the world since it's all you've ever been told.
After that all you need is to get sucked into a fucked up social circle, normalize more radical versions of what you already know, and now you're just a nazi.

I think it just goes to show you how quickly a radical platform radicalizes you
I guess it's why I've got so much pity for nazis right now
like there's no doubt in my mind that I have a moral imperative to stomp them, but looking at lib me from last year, and having this understanding about how the information you consume on a daily basis changes your worldview makes you realize that turning into a nazi could happen to pretty much anybody which is even scarier than just having them around

weird thing about online is people say they're "touch starved" because they crave intimacy but also fear it more than anything and like...that's a side effect of trauma and i really hope you can process it on your time and heal
