Off to do the rest of that chore we procrastinated on for sooo long! (We need to clean our tent and bags and stuff that we only dried, not cleaned, after our 7-weeks-tour last year… ooops!!!!)

BTW did we mention, we’ll be gone for like 10 days from friday, 25th of July to Monday, 4th of August. Off to climate camp in the Rhineland! :)

SUCCESS!!!

There are only two things left to clean, but we won’t need either on our trip and we cleaned enough for today, lol. Not just the things we need immediately.

Oh no! Just realised we still have clothes in the washing machines (yes, TWO) that we need to hang up to dry! Aw crap. Was looking forward to relaxing a bit and then going off to bed bc we’re really tired (was a very productive day again!) and it’s 11pm here.

But yeah, we did the thing :)

Queerability Statement About Jane Doe in Connecticut

queerability:

Queerability, a leading LGBTQ and disability rights advocacy organization run by and for LGBTQ people with disabilities, expresses our profound concern about the Jane Doe case in Connecticut. Jane Doe is a transgender teenage girl with a psychiatric disability who has been moved from a psychiatric treatment facility to a juvenile detention center for boys in solitary confinement without trial due to violent behavior. The forced institutionalization of Jane Doe is incongruent with the Olmstead vs. L.C decision.

We urge the Department of Justice to take action and conduct an investigation. We also call on other LGBTQ and disability rights advocacy organizations to speak out on this critical issue.

I’m p sure mohawks are cultural appropriation (unless he’s actually a Mohawk which I don’t think he is)

Thanks for calling that out!! You’re right he’s white i’m looking it up and found a few links that I’m gonna show him and I thought maybe some of y’all wanna see to?

This one’s written by a person who’s Kanienkeha’ka/ mowhawk as well as L’nu’k/  Mi’kmaw  who says the hairstyle is okay to use. I’m aware that one person saying that doesn’t mean all of them agree.

This one’s written by Qwo-Li Driskill who’s part Cherokee. He says white people should shave off their mohawks as an act of anti-racism. This part really struck me:

"Being an anti-racist white person is counter-culture. Trying to present a countercultural image by appropriating other cultures is not."

How I understand it, this means that making sure to show no disrespect to people of color, their traditions and identities is way more radical than wearing something to make you look different.

The bolded here is what’s so important. The kind of ‘counter-culture’ that bases itself in appearance and material things is ultimately just a self-serving kind of interest in activism. You only care so far as it provides some kind of benefit to you, and it ultimately will be no more than a phase. I’ve watched happen to countless people.

^^^

It’s funny (no actually not), but since I cut off my matted hair (“dreadlocks”) and stopped wearing the black hoody “uniform” of so many radical ppl (and also started feeling “old” for the scene), I actually question my own “radicalness” based on these things, even though I know that I did them because I learned more and became more radical, not less! But I assume that people looking at me will put me in the “unpolitical, ordinary person” box, and that annoys me sometimes. Idk sorry for being rambly here, just wanted to confirm that (potentially) appropriative hairstyles and clothes ARE self-serving (providing a feeling of “belonging” to one group, while “being different” from another).

awww, we wish we could share them with you! Now we just made everyone jelous of our delicious strawberries with vegan whipped cream :))))

If you don't want to answer, don't feel like you have to, I'm just a little confused because i'm a median system not a full system, so no one has a backstory, some have memories of things that didn't physically happen, but not anything very concrete. Where to backstories and memories that didn't physically happen come from?
Anonym

Hi anon! :)

Hmmmm, good question! I actually don’t know! In our system, many of us have made experiences in headspace that did not always happen in outer space as well, but we don’t consider them backstories, as they happened while they were parts of our system, so there’s nothing “back” about them. They also affect the rest of us as well, (almost?) as much as things that physically happened to specific people while fronting.

Maybe the closest thing to backstories we have is with introjects (including fictives and factives), who sometimes, but not always, feel like parts of the person’s/character’s story they were based on is their (back-)story as well. But we only have a handful, and afaik they don’t have extensive backstories. The fictives also all came to regard the character’s backstory as disconnected from themselves the more they realised that they were part of our system and are system members, not actually that character. (Which is a good thing because most fictional characters have a shitload of crap happen to them!)

Can anyone else help anon out? What are your experiences with “backstories”? What are your theories, how do you explain them?

Asking us who our host is is a bit like asking a shapeshifter what their true form is. Why assume they even have one? And only one?

Because shapeshifters usually have a base form to revert to or form they first entered. On the second question, because it originates from one source most of the time.

It wouldn’t be any harder asking “Do you have a host or more, do you know who they are?” instead! but it’d feel a great deal more validating and it’d be a more useful question to ask!

Idk even if the majority of shapeshifters have a base form – which is not the same as a true form, because it doesn’t imply that any other forms are less ~true~! – and probably most multiple systems have at least one host doesn’t make it OK to be closed minded about multiple systems who don’t have a host, have several hosts or host-like people and/or don’t know who their host is/hosts are… And that’s what bugs us most about this question and the way it is handled most often. Also the way people who ask this often assume they’re talking to ~the host~ right now and don’t even bother checking, or checking if they’re talking to the same person they talked to last time, and also, they usually assume or imply that all other system members are less real or less important.

Most polyfractured systems (systems with 100 or more members), as far as we know, have more than one host. Us included.

We have one body, but not one source or original or whatever, since we became multiple at such a young age (<1) that we hadn’t developed an original personality yet. Which often results in systems ending up really big from what I hear.

(We wrote the original post while being angry about having recieved that kind of treatment from people who really should have known better…)

All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.
