The 16th of July is Amazon Prime Day, and JUST SO HAPPENS to be the same day many of their workers are planning to strike for better conditions/wages. Many people are expanding this to other Amazon-run websites as well!
While it's great if you can safely do so, if someone has i.e. a friggin' contract with Twitch for streaming, don't be an ogre and claim they're Part Of The Problem because they can't take a day off from what might be their only source of income, you dingus.

once upon the time humans were a bunch of biological muck
then one day one human said "i'm going to name every single kind of tree"
and Proto-Indo-European language was born
then one day another human said "well this is confusing there are TOO MANY WORDS"
and a third human said "it's okay let's just invent some grammatical classes to help keep them straight in our heads"
and so they did. and that's where gender comes from

"In navigating my gender as a Black fat femme...who is often denied trans-ness yet not offered humanity or space to name my gender, means never feeling validated or real. When we relegate the validity of trans-ness to certain trauma, we are acknowledging that our identities can only exist within the realms of hierarchical oppression....The white supremacist cisgender lens only allows for...trans folks’ validity if they know you’ve transitioned/seek to transition..."
on this nonbinary pride day let's remember that nonbinary literally just means "identifies as something other than the gender binary" and that's like an infinite universe of possible things thank,s
