I don’t remember any high profile open letters about “cancel culture” when people were being quietly ostracised for coming out as trans. But a rich white woman faces a few consequences after coming out as a bigot, and suddenly “our cultural institutions are facing a moment of trial” and “this stifling atmosphere will ultimately harm the most vital causes of our time.”
Seeing a cis woman actress saying how she's excited to play a trans man role because "that’s a woman, that’s a female story – it changes to a man, but I want to understand the why and how of that. I want to get into it." it's infuriating.
leaving aside the issues of actual representation of trans actors, it's just sad to see "allies" still missing the point so hard. It reminds me of Ptolemaic astronomers, all caught up in explaining the motion of planet with increasingly complex theories because they cannot let go of their framework (where trans people are their AGAB); while with a simple change of perspective, (that we trans people have been telling them forever), the solution becomes apparent: a trans man wants to live as a man, maybe take hormones to have secondary sex characteristic of a man, maybe get a phallo *because* he is a man. So *simple*.

boseburo.ddns.net is a Pleroma instance that "stands for Freedom of Speech" (sic) and "against politically correctness and censorship", along with a small pile of dogwhistles rejecting accountability ("against character assassination" etc.). admin has thrown xenophobia at me for criticising German trans laws (above).

The US just bought 90% of the antiviral drug that has shown the greatest efficiency against Covid, leaving the rest of the planet with empty hands. That's actively hostile against... well anyone else. It's no longer soft power shit, they're actively stepping on everyone else for their sole advantage
The worst thing is that all this won't even help most Americans. They'll just rack up the prices and leave it collecting dust without being put to use until someone pays the loads of money they want
