If someone wants to be called Tinky Winky, call them Tinky Winky.
Who the fuck are you to refer to anyone in a way that they’re not comfortable with? What gives you the fucking nerve to think you somehow know that person’s identity better than they know it themself? And it’s the fucking “anarchist” crowd that’s most guilty of this identity policing. Are you really saying that you think you have the right to control someone else’s identity, when you don’t even think the government should be able to control how much heroine you can sell to a twelve year old?
‘cause a very large number of my friends are borderline, autistic, or both, I wrote an ask meme that assumes you’re, well, borderline and autistic. (Questions may also work assuming other varieties of neurodivergence, such as OCD, ADHD, PTSD, social anxiety, depression, etc.)
Feel free to reblog even if you these aren’t all applicable to you if some are.

[crossed out the ones that didn’t apply to me or i didn’t know what they were referring to]
There is one more thing I have hardly seen addressed in media about Anders Behring Breivik and it’s the fact that practically his entire online history, his extremist right wing, Islamophobic, anti immigrant, anti multiculturalism rhetoric, in spite of being borne out of a sense of Norwegian nationalist pride, was communicated… in English.
His 1500 page manifesto, instigating, yet again, a war against a supposed “foreign invasion”, called “A European Declaration of Independence” was in English (and yes, because self flagellation is “my thing”, I read a good chunk of it because I was interested in finding out whether he spoke about Geert Wilders or not -he did, on numerous occasions across the pamphlet).
His forum activity on Jihad Watch and Atlas Shrugged, both were conducted in English.
For the past few years, I’ve been clumsily trying to explain that the current right wing euphoria sweeping Europe is part of a larger, global phenomenon that certainly includes (and I suspect, draws inspiration from as well) the US. People like Pamela Geller are hailed by these individuals as beacons of political enlightenment. And on a European level, these people all look up to Geert Wilders, who has made a consistent effort to communicate his ideas in English, for a broader audience as well.
Maybe the framework under which we have been analyzing the phenomenon of right wing nationalism is all wrong. This clearly goes beyond local, national borders. Instead, I am unsure what the correct way of framing it would be (it is too new to yet have much we can draw upon), but it has to be tied to globalization and uniformity and, perhaps, with certain forces who would benefit from the creation of a mono culture (one of consumers, maybe, instead of civil subjects?).
