Excellent! Hookers and blow for everyone!
It took six months to kill the last thread!

Excellent choice people.
I have been bouncing around tumblr, and have gotten trapped, mesmerised, in the tumblr of someone who hates me. She's a trans woman who hates cis people, especially cis people who think they are allies. I hate losing before I even start doing anything. I just want to be a good, accepting, helpful, thoughtful person, dammit.
Then again, I'm not sure she cares about that, so I am not going to get hung up on not having her approval. But her tumblr is quite mesmerising. It's a lot of anger. I have also learnt about the radscum (when you're angry about the radfems (radical feminists) that's what you call them--you hate the first and second wave, and you're not excited about the third), and the total ubiquity of cis privilege. Which is giving me some insight into white people, by the way. Extra useful.
Quiver in fear, folks. I gave my mom my old laptop for her birthday yesterday and she'll likely be online within the week.
Yes, I googled myself to make sure nothing too incriminating shows up in the first few pages.
Huzzah, new thread! I can go to bed now.

I can understand why a trans woman might have lots of anger and might direct much of that anger towards cis people, especially cis people who think of themselves as allies but who are not and never will be trans. But I wouldn't really want to spend a lot of time in close proximity to her anger.
