Queens Election Update 🚨:
White women weaponizing white tears again 🙄
Aye, the homie @benjancewicz could use some love today.
The only thing I'm interested in is forward progress.
I do not care about white guys whining about how and why they can't continue being assholes without consequence.
I do not care about people who want to status of said white guys to rub off on them, so they underwrite their non-sense.
The way forward is clear. Either you do it our you don't.
Anything that doesn't contribute to that is just people putting their biases above progress.
Ha, and we know where that comes from.
Remember, we're not talking about how to increase safety and make our spaces better.
We're 'arguing' with people who benefit from toxic environments, so they simply don't want to do it.
That's the crux of all of these hissy fits being thrown about language, censorship.
We're hitting the core of why people don't want to change and how that is the very thing that enables hate and harassment to continue.
And that core is the same as it's always been. People are just bigots.
The math isn't hard

Weird that the N-Word and “Fag” didn’t make the filter list🤔 Guess they’re just more comfortable w those than they are “White PPL”
And if you're wondering why I'm giving cybreDOTspace the side eye.
It's anyone on cybre's right to filter whatever they way, but when they're giving suggestions to bigots who have a history of harassing POCs and women, ha, that's a bit of a red flag.
And this isn't the first time we've seen bigots get space on cybre...
As anyone on my instance will tell you, I am extremely active when it comes to protecting the beautiful and dangerous people that have so blessed me with the gift of their participation here at Social. I don't fuck around when it comes to that.
So believe when I tell you making spaces safer is VERY possible if one actually puts the effort in to do so.
And the reason I am so critical of places that talk is that I know they just don't. Not b/c it's hard.
They just don't want to.
The reason the fedi is so toxic in a lot of places isn't magic.
Yes, there are always going to be hateful people on the web. That's just a part of being in this space.
But it's prevalence and visibility is directly connected to how many alleged PROGRESSIVES give space for these ideas to spread.
That's the main problem. That's the core of the issue.
A lot of people on the fedi are just full of shit. And it comes out when you actually challenge their commitment to safety and diversity
