Just because different groups experience *different* oppression doesn't mean one group gets to tell the other that they are not oppressed.

Plus a lot of the time, the people saying a group is not oppressed are part of the people oppressing them.

I grew up in the Southern Baptist church with about half of my family being missionaries. I currently attend a small evangelical church while I'm in college, and I love the community of other college students, but some of the stuff that is being taught and pushed is really starting to get to me. I'm not sure if I should stay where I am for the next two years of college and try to encourage conversation and improvement, but I think leaving now would be hard.

@mike So if there are any other people here or people who think they might be I would love to connect with you and talk about it. I want to share this part of me with my friends and family but I just don't know how and I'm afraid they'll dismiss it and me

Dragons can hoard anything they hold precious to them.

Video games, swords, cuties, anything really.

The only reason it's believed that they hoard gold is because they want it to be believed, that capitalists might wander into their lair and become a light snack.

A convenient gender-neutral way to address a group of people is “foolish mortals”

It is always helpful to remember that everyone I know is a real person and also a character in my head.

I should never prioritize the construct in my mind over the living and breathing being outside of myself.

plushies are the best hecking thing in the entire universe and my mind cannot be changed

But now we won't have a class together so I've got to figure that out I guess. She's always really busy with her classes, and I am too tbh. They work us way too hard

Not great portrayals of homosexuality in a movie, death 

She wanted to take another anthropology class with me this semester, but it was during her required studio time.

Also this class was like completely unrelated to her major so hmmm👀

She would always be looking at me during class even though she was closer to the teacher. And then we'd walk together afterwards.

We did a group film project and I chose the one set in Egypt with a gay man. She's from Egypt and she said it's the first time she's seen that on an Egyptian movie or TV show

Basically I just spent all of today being really gay and thinking about my crush which is fun, but also like I'm not gonna see her for two more months so I gotta calm down lol.

I guess I can use the two months to figure out how to actually hang out with people 🙃

We had a class together last semester which was really fun, it was anthropology of the Middle East and we would just look at each other when someone in the class had a really bad take.

Oh yeah, my two friends that I hung out with yesterday are a year ahead of me, so I thought we'd only have one more year together, but they've decided they're staying an extra year after they graduate to do some research!

I told them I was excited we'd have two more years together and they got all choked up and said "we're too gay for this" 😂 lol ok.

But I am really happy about that.
