*Before you proclaim that something's easy, taking a moment to consider which people it might not be easy for
*Not talking about disabled people (in general, or a specific disability) as if the person/people you're talking to couldn't possibly be in that group
*Checking it's okay to talk about a potentially triggering topic, including in one on one conversations
*Not immediately putting lateness down to laziness

There are just some examples, feel free to add more!

What this might look like in practice:
*Not wearing perfume unless you've checked that everyone you'll interact with can tolerate it
*Captioning your images even if no openly visually impaired people follow you (if you can, of course. Conflicting access needs are a thing.)
*Asking your friends if they have any access requirements while making plans
*Not assuming your child is/will be neurotypical
*Not assuming your child is/will be biotypical

it's almost like an ideology that's core tenets are;
-trans people are evil
-porn is evil
-men are inherently animalistic we can't do much about that unfortunately

was only ever "fringe" because of the specific demographic and loose framework it was viewed through, and was never ever ever gonna stay as a minority or disliked political alignment

remember when people would point to radfems and be like "don't yell at us for hating tumblr this is why lol". remember when people would go "the problem with feminism is a very small percentage of it [radfems] is the loudest :/" anyway haha isn't so so so so so weird how you don't hear that that much anymore 🤔

people will be like "wtf is "anti discourse" lmao" and happily not acknowledge the fact that a trans femme person cannot even breathe on tumblr without being violently harassed by 2334398 cis women in their late 20s who's ideology revolves around systemically abusing society's most vulnerable people and passing it off as progressive

the problem with tumblr hate is it almost exclusively mocks the culture there for being weird/cringe in ways that more or less directly translate to "queer, young (like teenaged), leftwing, and/or disabled" and not "tumblr has been used as a breeding ground for terfs and nazis and helped develop incredibly toxic modes of black and white thinking and online bullying and ostracism"

the problem with tumblr hate is that it's usually like, "ugh fuck those homosexuals on that website", as opposed to "isn't that the website where you need to specify which act of grave desecration you're talking about?"

@myconidiosyncrasy victorians had the right idea by telling a shitton of ghost stories at christmas

borrowing some "we can make this gayer" energy remixing it into "we can make this spookier" energy and just absolutely going ham on the winter holidays

i think nightmare before christmas had the right idea actually. i think christmas should be spookier

The minute you make a piece of media "mandatory" or "essential" to some larger cultural experience, you have made it Bad

god the British museum just needs to be destroyed as an institution. literally almost everything in there is stolen, and there are *dozens* of countries who petition the museum to get their cultural artifacts back, and have done so for literally half a century
