radicals win when we're the people our communities come to for help

our politics must be the politics of love and care and hard work for our communities not only because that's what we believe but because that's how we win

I am a / radical.

This is because I understand some things that many people do not, or do not want to. This isn’t because those people are stupid or purpousely ignorant; rather, my circumstances forced me to part with some of the comforts of predatory software, and it opened my eyes to the world that universal software freedom could create.

i honestly wish i were more nonbinary bc the nonbinary community is way more accepting and open than then binary trans community

i called myself nonbinary for like 3 years, and don't think i don't see all these gen x'ers out here telling me they're "working hard to get my pronouns right" now

love to go from being a nonbinary couple, to being in lesbians, to being transhets over the course of two years, without ever changing partners

followup being that transhets should be fast tracked through the adoption process because honestly, who's thought more about how society relates to identity
