Pinned toot

Revised thanks to recent events:
My name is Valerie Grimaude-Valens, but you can also call me Freya. I am an 8 foot tall Squirrel Werewolf who rejected heaven. I'm a sister to @AliceGrimaude and a mother to a few adoptees.

I am a former fascist who had reformed into an anarcho-syndicalist and a supporter of antifa. I sometimes talk about my time in the AltFurry cult to help people avoid falling in with that bad crowd, and to demolish the rhetoric they use to poison the community.

hypervisibility is shit, and it sucks with out a moderator or assitant to help work thru the sludge.

not to mention i have academic work and a practice to maintain.

i refuse to let the TL , outside of the ppl that support me now, i care for you all so much, forget what harm they have done to me, Ro, Ginny and other Blk femmes that have left this toxic vapid white space.

And your favorite PoC characters on here that created an environment for violence against me.

Re: Hand-wringing over property damage 

I'm going to guess that the image of an organized gang of arsonists working nationwide to torch various locations is probably a really emotionally fraught one. Can you imagine the sheer community reaction if a gang as large and powerful as the police existed and seemed hell-bent on burning buildings down, and nobody stopped them?

Now, why is that image more emotionally potent, even paralyzing, than what actually happens? You're not immune to propaganda.

abuse & oppression tactic to watch out for: DARVO 

abusers / oppressors will:

Deny the abuse took place

Attack you for daring to point it out

and then Reverse Victim and Offender

example:

“I did nothing wrong! And how dare you accuse me when you are actually terrible yourself! Why are you attacking me, you monster!”

keep an eye out for all the times people in positions of power do this to silence those they have harmed, it’s constant and it’s everywhere, you might even be doing it yourself

If youre spamming certain tags on IG with black images that could be better used for Blk folks on the ground to get info or resources you may be buying into a deflection tool but thats my opinion

hi it's ! im kas and im a trans NB lady and also a typhlosion

i have a lot of venom in my mouth about various things, but don't worry about me; please go listen to queer and trans people of color. they've been some of the most vulnerable people in american history and they're some of the ones most at risk given all that's going on

:asexual_flag: It's Pride Month, and I support the fight against police brutality against people of color. We all need to support each other.

If your posts about current events that deal with Black Lives centers you

a not black person or white passing person, sis..

Imagine talking abt Blk life & the post makes Blk life secondary and a footnote.

Do you want Blk ppl to stand a chance in society or not? Otherwise, no body cares.

Oh wait, the white gaze does.
