i stand
on the sacrifices
of a million women before me
what can i do
to make this mountain taller
so the women after me
can see farther

People talking about giving up things for like: chocolate, meat, junk food, soda, alcohol, coffee, bread, & sugar.

Meanwhile I'm thinking we should give up things like: Sexism, homophobia, racism, violence, islamophobia, hatred, oppression, Xenophobia, & injustice.

Forcing people to pay attention to traumatic shit that they can't even meaningfully address on their own isn't 'raising awareness.'

It's just being an asshole.

Also, if you're trying to rally people to action you need to actually give people a concrete and accessible thing to do. It's not enough to just point out that something needs to be done.

pretty much everyone using the word 'triggered' as a 'joke' can go get in the sea

Anyone on here preach? Or just generally interested in biblical academia?

If so, I have a pdf library of close to 900 books, most in the realm of biblical academia. I put them all into a google drive folder recently for a friend of mine, but now that it’s in there I can share it with pretty much anyone. If that's of interest to you, pm me your email address and I’ll share the link with you.

#DearWhitePeople No one wants you to feel guilty. Your fragility is hard enough to deal with without you hamming it up performatively. What we want is for you to acknowledge the systemic advantages you have because of whiteness and maybe even do some work to dismantle those systems that unfairly privilege you.

This society learns us the fact that failing is *bad* and a shame.
Let me tell you: it is *not*.

Be proud of failing.
You tried something, and even if you did not succeed at your task, you learned something: this way does not work, for this reason.

That's like… The 101 of learning.

Making people ashamed of failing is a really fucked up thing to do.


United Methodists under 35 may be interested in signing this young people's request for a moment of privilege at GC plenary tomorrow:

Note that it does ask whether you as a signer are LGBTQ (I don't remember if that question was required, and don't know if it will make the public version)--but if you're feeling confident, don't mind hiding, and/or are safe to identify yourself (or if you're cishet and support the OCP and young people!), you might consider signing this.
