@Prawnlegs connected to me asking for the bunraku hood, something you might like to know: if you hang the hood on the wall it'll be placed on a wall-attached mannequin head, which you can then either place above or noclip through a placed clothing item, and if it's a long-skirt dress it then looks like a strange little person standing against the wall
@Prawnlegs hey could you send me one of those weird executioner hoods? I haven't gotten it in my store yet and I got Plans for it
@Prawnlegs I'm keeping mastodon open in another window so I'll hear notifications, let me know if tonight is good for me to come by
@Prawnlegs update I now have an ABSURD amount of black roses so please let me come to your island sometime and gift some onto you and your family
I've always felt a primary function of racism is to displace this hopelessness white people feel onto the rest of us. To make us feel like being happy and whole is impossible even though as Black Americans our existence is proof that it is very far from that.
Whiteness removes historical context from one's experience, so everything is viewed as bleak and irrelevant, which is ahistorical in terms of human progress.
In the end, it's usually just white people making things worse to justify a view
Last week ASAN published "Welcome to the Autistic Community," a book about autism for autistic people and by autistic people. It also has good information for allies. It's available free for reading online or download, or you can purchase a copy. I just finished reading it, and I love it. I highly recommend it. People well versed in autistic self-advocacy might already know a lot of it, but the presentation is so good I recommend it anyway. https://autismacceptance.com/ #ActuallyAutistic

This is an unofficial collection of resources relating to the COVID-19 outbreak. It includes links to reputable sources for information about the outbreak, but it focuses on ways we can help one another (like self-quarantine, offer computing power, donate blood, give medical supplies to those who need them the most), find out about work leave, care for children while schools are closed, and de-stress at home. Today, this Google Doc is 12 pages long so far, and mostly focuses on resources in the US. Please comment about more resources to add!
