From the footage I saw it was a bunch of protesters up against folks in full ppe, id take that over the cops, army or national guard. Weather it’s astroturfed or not, at least people can protest without getting a billy club to the face or being shot at directly with rubber bullets, unlike in the US.
I think setting small goals for yourself might be beneficial! Transitioning is a process, and I can tell you from personal experience it can feel like one step forward two steps back.
Set up goals that you can achieve For example: follow a makeup tutorial, look at people you admire and pick up on how they dress. Pinterest is a great jumping off point for figuring out how u wanna dress. Find what makes you feel empowered!
Regardless tho you are not a product! There is no ideal you need to live up to. I know it’s hard to love yourself, but at least give yourself a chance.
You and your body are deserving of respect and love just as much as anyone else trans, cis or otherwise. Here for support on the journey comrade <3
You’re right I just say that cuz it kinda emphasizes the fact that:
Language doesn’t really mean shit in the us ( liberal = communist, libertarian= free market, etc) people will throw around political jargon without knowing it’s history/ ACTUAL definition.
The American parties are really just two sides of the same ruling party. No matter how much you hate either party they’re still both liberal parties working towards roughly the same ends.
It’s honestly a toss up for me. Some people are very down with the communist perspective, even if they don’t self ID as Communist. Others who disagree with me are able to at least have civil convos with me. Unfortunately some people I know are very sheltered and yes will literally believe anything they hear on X media outlet.
I am not sure your situation, but have you tried talking politics with people in person? I find it is a lot more tranquil and mutual than off line.
Imma also be brutally honest, but it’s only cuz I want you to have the discussion you want to have. People don’t really respond well to rants and long essay type things, at least not without a lil interpersonal understanding. Listening to peoples views ( no matter how reactionary ) can do a lot for them to actually hear yours in return.
Asking questions is also good to see if they’ve even really thought about their opinions, but also shows ur engagement.
I respect the hustle and the passion and def try and publish ur writing of you can!
Bro that’s what westerners really think. Like I been to Cuba and said out loud just to see “ god I hate the communist government!” Nothing happened. There was no one to sweep me off the streets. Hell the citizens had actual shit to talk. Some people love it, some hate it but you can say what you want, Nobody cares.
Like I dont care about ur allegiances with the war, the western countries involving themselves just continue to make irrational decisions. Like there is no pragmatism, the leaders of these counties only have a mind for the short term capital gains. Hate or love Putin but underestimating him is probably the biggest mistake you could make right now.
More commie figures please this is adorable
