sometimes i'll be like "hmm tumblr isn't talking about <thing> as much as i would have thought" and then i realize that means nothing because 90% of my dash is just the same 6-ish regularly-active blogs i follow. im standing around with an elevator's worth of people going "so this is the state of society"

So like… what do gatekeepers… DO in the real world? Like if they’re at an LGBT+ event and a bi woman is like “Hi I’m Emily and this is my boyfriend,” do they like… confront her? When a person at a support group says “I’m asexual” do they just sit silently and stew in their own rage? Like how do you people function in the real world??

Since @anarchistmemecollective brought it up:
New York: $91,720 - $44 an hour
California: $120,120 - $57.75 an hour
Hawaii: $153,520 - $74 an hour
(and actually, the low end states are Ohio and West Virginia; Oklahoma is $45,320, or almost $22 per hour)

I will keep on saying this: If the mass deportations of Black and Brown people was considered racist under Trump, it doesn’t magically stop being racist just because a Democrat™ is doing it now. The silence from “allies” who were screaming bloody murder about immigration abuses under Trump is as deafening as it is hypocritical.
And I will keep saying this too: Abolish ICE. ICE is beyond “reforming.” And prosecute ICE and Border Patrol agents who commit human rights abuses.

It's ironic that Elon Musk's company is named after Nikolai Tesla, given that Musk is more of an Edison stealing the credit from modern-day Teslas
