Hey everyone I’m Satsuma, you can call me Satsu if you’d like
I’ve never done an introductions post bc I am fundamentally unsure whether I actually exist but in theory at least I’m a #queer ace butch (they/them please) who likes learning about cool stuff and trying to make the world be a better place
I’ve been around on mastodon for a while so if you’ve got questions or need help feel free to ask! Or also if you just want to say hello 💛🧡❤️
have now taken to sending replies where I just quote the link they give me and then go "i don't see any reference to the comprehensive fee, am I missing something?" so we'll see if that works lol
(the plan is, once I either find the official policy or successfully prove that it's *not* official policy, to take it to the local newspaper)
Hey its #CryptidMonday everyone post your best cryptids
Judith Butler on the culture wars, JK Rowling and living in “anti-intellectual times”

USPOL, RBG, Your Cynicism
You cannot expect to do good without acting inside the system to triage, and working without the system to force change.
Both of these things matter.
Exercising your right to vote doesn't mean you are supporting the system, it means you are manipulating as best you can from within.
Exercising your right to protest, and force change by holding politico's feet to the fire? Just as important.
At this point if you are of the belief that not voting is a good idea, you are either a manipulated fool, or a mouthpiece trying to disenfranchise others.
Get over your ego, and go do both.
I'm not asking you to even like it. But know how you are leveraged, and maximize your free will.
