Are you American and wondering what you can do during ICE raids? Read this. This is all hypothetical, though. Obviously. I wouldn't *actually* recommend sabotaging ICE.

how to teach white kids that cops aren't good part 2 of ? 

good groundwork:

don't teach your kid obedience to authority. teach your kid to question you, and treat them like you value their developing reasoning skills. admit when you are wrong. regularly apologize to your child when you are wrong. you can't teach a kid that cops aren't good if you act like a cop.

how to teach white kids that cops aren't good 

i told my kid that a rule can be bad, and that a rule is bad if it causes you to hurt people. the example of a bad rule i gave was it being illegal in some places to give food to houseless people.

i said that being arrested doesn't mean that you've done something bad, and it typically means that you've broken a rule. so i told her that the job of police is to arrest and punish people who have broken a rule, even if the rule is one that hurts people.

tonight i explained to my 3 year old why "the police arrest Bad People" (a sentence uttered in one episode of a toddler show she watches) is incorrect in an age-appropriate way.

i feel immense relief about this because i can't maintain my integrity if i allow my kid to develop the idea that cops and rules are inherently good.

I should really use this platform more. I'm not involved enough with politics.

So fascists and liberals are crying over literal spilled milk now? Fucking snowflakes.

Throw back to the time an old white woman decided to go to me and a white passing latina store worker to complain about brown men outside the store saying mean things about her in Spanish and when we asked her what they said, her reply was, "I don't know I don't speak Spanish!"

write your autistic characters or headcanons as having social knowledge their allistic friends don't. if they're the Autistic-Coded Designated Weirdo in a pack of normies, they're probably into a bunch of weird shit the normies haven't heard of and have a huge headstart on the normies as concerns, oh, I dunno, kink boundary navigation or how to be polyamorous or navigating someone's unfamiliar pronouns/lack thereof

New here. Part of the Tumblr exodus. Fuck Tumblr. That's all I have to say.

tumblr looked at its huge trans community and decided banning "female-presenting nipples" was the way to go??

shocked my dash isn't full of "so how far in my transition do i have to be before getting banned/not getting banned?" jokes
