no but seriously, reblog this and i will send you terrible three line fanfic based on your url
Finally watched Monday’s episode of The Fosters. :(
I don’t know you but you probably need this.
These are the “rules” that I usually go by when I’m debating whether or not it’s appropriate for me to reblog a post by and/or about a group I am not a member of:
1) Is it concerning something that is an intra-group issue? If yes, then I don’t reblog because I’m invading that “safe space.” If I’m unsure then I err on the side of not reblogging.
2) If it’s something that should be signal boosted, I reblog it, but I do not add any commentary. My purpose in reblogging it is to signal boost the voices of that group’s members; my commentary as an outsider is unnecessary and unwanted.
3) If it’s something that I know is incorrect (for example when people use ethnic and/or racial slurs, or their knowledge of history or the law is just…no) then I may reblog and correct. I have to admit that I do not do this very often though.
4) If I reblog something and a member of that group tells me that I should not have or that I’m wrong or anything similar to that, I apologize and delete my reblog. The only other thing I’ll do sometimes is ask for clarification if I’m unsure about something. I always do this after Googling it if it’s something that is Google-able. But I always ask with the caveat that whomever I’m asking does not owe me an answer or an explanation. That’s more to check myself than to remind them that they don’t owe me anything. By typing it out, I’m trying to remind myself that it’s my responsibility to learn, but it’s not their responsibility to teach me. The onus is on me. Oppressed people do not owe privileged people an education on their oppression. Especially when it is SUPER easy to find things out on Google.
Is this helpful? Does anyone else have any other guidelines?
sad because you can’t watch fanfics

I keep telling myself that I’ll stop reblogging about antisemitism, because the posts seem to only be reblogged and circulated by the same people each time, most of whom are Jewish. But then one or two of my non-Jewish mutuals or followers will reblog that post that I was questioning whether to reblog. And it’s such a little thing, but I appreciate it nonetheless.
it bothers me that Kansas and Arkansas are not pronounced the same
I’m from the UK and I have been pronouncing Arkansas as Ar-Kansas my whole life
For all my non-american friends, Arkansas is pronounced ark-an-saw
