I really wish there was a way to get people to know that there are branches of Christianity besides White southern Evangelical. There are branches of Christianity that aren't homophobic, aren't White supremacist, and aren't authoritarian.

I want to scream, "We need to advertise! Why shouldn't we advertise! Get the word out far and wide."

But using advertisement in this way is like the Ring of Doom in LoTR. It's the weapon of the enemy. To use it is folly.

I am so tired of people who debate other people's identities or try to explain it for them. You don't need to understand it you just need to respect it.

Maybe if you didn't treat language and labels in such a prescriptivist and binary way it wouldn't be so confusing

Scientists have discovered a way to clone unicorns. Through this amazing technological breakthrough we have learned that unicorn steaks are friggin delicious!

Literally the whole point of Christianity, seriously *the whole point*, is that God is no longer nationalist.

growing up autistic is fun because everyone is like "wow you're so smart" because you know a lot of big words and so you test well in school but then you get into the real world and you can't take care of yourself or socialize or do anything that an adult needs to do and you realize that you're actually like, disabled and nobody wanted to tell you because they think being disabled is bad

I think of my grandmother, who was young during the Great Depression, and how even 60 years later she never quite trusted that there would be enough.

When I imagine the future, the beautiful days when we've pitched this devouring machinery off our backs, when we've side by side created justice, care, honesty, and life again in the ruins of its carcass - if I've lived to see it, I imagine myself like her, old, timid, flinching every time because I can never trust that the cruelty's really over.

guns, nra 

Protesters at the NRA convention should yell at every single person entering “baby killer!” Just like the right-wingers do at abortion clinics.

Abortion and Trans Lives 

Now is a really good time to check up on your trans men, trans masc, and non-binary friends who are watching in real time as the phrase “women’s right to choose” erases their existence as a person with a uterus affected by this.

Now is also a really good time to check up on your trans women, trans femmes, and non-binary friends, because there’s lots of us who wish they could have kids, and fully support abortion rights, but are excluded in this conversation too.

US Pol, women's health, period trackers

Be wary of data collection in apps related to women's health, especially period trackers. They're actively being sought-after by data brokers selling to anti-abortion groups and law enforcement.

For anyone going to direct actions or protests here is my protest checklist™️

- Wear all black
- Cover your face
- Don't bring a phone, if you must:
- Lock your phone with pin or password
- Disable any "smart unlock" feature
- Don't bring ID of any kind
- Don't bring payment cards of any kind
- Bring cash, water, and food
- Bring an umbrella
- Inform yourself about the protests' lawyer and write their phone # on your arm with permanent marker; if there is none:
- Make sure you know of a decent lawyer and do the same
- DO NOT TALK TO THE POLICE, if you get arrested, say you want your lawyer, nothing else

I swear to you this: I will never be interested in a church that defines itself by who it excludes.

Most days I'm a Moral Influence Theory kinda guy, but sometimes I like to kick it old school with some good Christus Victor.

Christ went to Hell to kick some ass!

I've written something I want to share!

It's a 5-minute intro/demo for an IF called "Kite Day in Reign Country." I've been working on it with my 16-yo, following their vision.

The thing you should know about Fnimlings is, in Reign Country, the collective fears manifest. Fnimlings are just the sweetest little guys, but fear hunts them.

Check it out if you're interested:

I really like this 😍

"I don't want to change an autistic person into a non-autistic person. I want to help an autistic person who struggles become an autistic person who doesn't struggle."

'Takiwatanga' is the Māori word for autism.

It means 'in their own time and space'.
