The Progressive Thread!
« on: February 11, 2020, 09:20:33 pm »
This thread is located on the traditional cyber-territory of the For'o'for Cyber-Nation!   I wish a hearty siha-siha muckachuck to our For'o'for friends!


Now that young Coonlight Graham has returned from re-education camp and has become Progressive Graham, I thought it would be helpful to have a progressive thread, so that we can all share our feelings and experiences in a safe space.  Practice our territory acknowledgements, practice pronoun checks, and that sort of thing. Sound good?  I thought so.

I'll start.  I'm Kimmy (pronouns kimza/kimza) and I identify as kim-gendered. Please respect my pronouns!  I want to spend a moment talking about my white privilege, which includes looking really pasty when I go to the beach, as well as getting sunburned quite easily.  I'm also a cultural appropriator. I eat Mexican food every week, prepared by the labor of the hard-working, underappreciated Salvadoran women at a local restaurant.  I feel bad about this, but also good, because I love tacos.

Feel free to join in!  What are you feeling guilty about today?  Share your feelings, this is a non-judgmental place. Also, please snap your fingers or do jazz-hands rather than clapping, as some members may be triggered by loud noises.

I went to Eastside Mario's and it's not very Italian at all.  Cultural appropriation.

They served sliders.  Italians don't serve mini-hamburgers.  If you want an appetizer you should be eating a plate of prosciutto and bocconcini

If my thoughts and feelings donít conform with SJW values, will I be drowned out by loud shrill screeching?

Why do I get the feeling you don't find humour in progressive causes you actually care about?

Progressives can be pretty humourless.

Few do.

Well, I DO because I'm perfect.  But most people have a behavioural and moral switch they do when things are turned around on them.

How else do you explain the same people who coined the term 'snowflakes' inventing the war on Christmas ?   ???

That's an excellent question!  I was ABAB (assigned blonde at birth) but now I choose to identify as non-brunette (NB, or "enby").

Identifying as NB lets people know that the stereotypes they hold about other blondes do not apply to me! I can simply educate them by explaining that I identify as non-brunette, and they will realize that their assumptions are not applicable to me.

I feel more victimized than guilty. I was raised in Ontario by liberals where they forced me to go to free-school.  I thought I'd managed to bury the memories but they've been flooding back lately. I'm pretty sure Mrs Buck was actually a man.

Thanks for sharing, eyeball!  Your feelings are valid!

A public school education is nothing to be ashamed of!  Many of Canada's great minds attended public schools! Notable examples include former PM Stephen Harper as well as yours truly!

Regarding Mrs Buck, please remember that trans women are women! Mrs Buck is a woman, even if she did have a dong. Perhaps, now that you are old enough to understand, you should reach out to Mrs Buck and let her know that you've worked through your transphobia. She would probably love to hear from her former students! She would be very proud to know that she helped you become the man you are today.

We love you, eyeball!
