of fucking course antisemitism is part of euro folklore, antisemitism is a constitutive element of european culture and identity
european xians: *demonize and terrorize jews for more than a millenium and a half*
white euro writer: i'm sure there's nothing charged about borrowing some folkoric images of ugly fairies and placing them in social roles identified with jews
this isnt really germane to jkr's terf shit (which is vile and others have spoken much better addressing it) but i've seen ppl defend the antisemitism in her portrayal of goblins by saying that she's basing them on european folklore, not antisemitic imagery and like
why do you think there's no antisemitic imagery in european folklore?

A reminder about fat people:
*Fat people are loveable
*Fat people are desirable
*Fat people are sexual (if they want to be)
*Fat people are allowed to eat whatever the hell they want
*Fat people are allowed to show their tummy and thighs and however much skin they want
*Fat people dont have to show any skin they dont want either!
And above all:
*Fat people don't owe you a fucking thing. Not an explanation, not a reason, not a performance to fit ourselves into some model fat that you can with Good or Bad
*I love fat people
the end, good day

Anyone who non-ironically uses the term "echo chamber" to describe people doing self-care is a troll who you can safely block and mute
It's a big jump to go from the legit observation that echo chambers exist, i.e. "right-wing trolls only listen to other fashy people" all the way over to "and that's why you must listen to every reply guy"
Block and mute early
Block and mute often
Do it for reasons that are entirely "selfish"
No one is entitled to your attention
There will not be a test
Nothing bad happens if you don't hear them
Too many techbros? Mute 'em all
That one guy's jokes need a CW? Your timeline can be full of other stuff
You can even mute that one person's boosts while keeping their posts
It's not censorship; you're not hurting that person
And you don't ever need to explain it or tell anyone
Black Protests 😠 white Nonsense
So. We need to straighten out a few things. I was following the protests on Twitter all night last night, and noticed two recurring themes.
The first is that a lot of Black protestors have been talking about how their protests were peaceful until a bunch of white people showed up and started wrecking shit.
Apparently, Black organisers have had to ask white protestors to calm down, and some Black protestors have had to put out literal fires which white people started.
We all know who gets the blame in these things. We all know who faces the harsh consequences and who gets to walk home without much hassle.
There are a bunch of reports of this stuff in a thread by @FreeYourMindKid@twitter.com (I trust him as a reliable source):
