support is NOT a DM saying "i'm so sorry this happened but i will not risk anything of my own to help!!! uwu"
support is NOT asking what happened, asking for receipts.
support is NOT avoiding the topic altogether because you're scared to lose friends
you can't only be there half the time and still sleep well at night
so i guess the point of all of this creep talk isn't to say that we need to ostracize these villains for their dastardly deeds, i want everyone to think about why perrine deleted her account. she got NO support.
it took me and a bunch of other people to get anyone to actually admit there was a problem.
i know people saw her thread and i know she didn't get the kind of support she needed from people in that discord server or on here.
she deleted her account because of how alone she felt.
Meta, w l
Also, apologies mean nothing if the incorrect narrative that puts the onus on us (qpoc) keeps being given.
Lastly, don't use QPOC and our rightful rage as a litmus test for our own politics. How cruel.
To shake ur fingers at us telling us to focus on straight men and not ww under what. Queer femme /feminist solidarity?
That let's me know how little interesectionality as P R A X I S is being used by ppl in here.
i'm so annoyed. i can't believe this is still being debated.
someone came at me with racial, transphobic slurs. i reported them and then posted the screenshot to warn people to stay away from them because that's what you are supposed to do when someone attacks you.
thats it. that's all. i had no ill will against w.l. i said nothing about w.l or anna, i indicated nothing in the fault of her administrating. i didn't even know who she was until two days ago. anything else is fabricated.
why didn’t anyone tell me there’s a found footage film database???

We do this not out of any personal enmity but because we believe that the actions, or lack thereof, that she has taken in this most recent incident and several beforehand are unacceptable. We do not take this action lightly, but we feel compelled to send a strong message that excusing racism both overt and subtle and reacting to voiced concerns manipulatively and disingenuously is not tolerable behavior in this space.

still not a bear
