IF ME CALLING YOU DUDE OR GURL CAUSES YOU TO HAVE DYSPHORIA YOU SHOULD tell me because you being comfortable is so much more important than some stupid slang
or when if i call you “man” because i know i do that a lot. please tell me if it causes dysphoria or just makes you upset in general. because i will stop because i love you.
A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.
Yeah OK but let’s talk about this for a second.
This idea that people should have their needs met unconditionally, without first proving that they’re “useful,” is an inherently anti-capitalist sentiment.
Capitalism is an exploitative system by nature. It relies on the exploitation of both people (workers) and resources to continue; it requires that some people have what they need and that others don’t. Poverty will always, always exist under capitalism; that is not going away, not until we devise an alternative economic system to replace it.
Hint: socialism is the antithesis of capitalism. Maybe we should all start looking in that direction.
A fun thing to do when people accuse you of “thinking people should just have stuff HANDED TO THEM! ! !” Is to just cold be like yes. I absolutely do believe that. I think every single person should have their needs met unconditionally without ever having to prove that they “deserve” it based on arbitrary criteria of usefulness. You got me. Busted.
