SMOL INTRO:

my name is jesse (she/her) and i am 29. i’m originally from nova scotia, canada but i’ve lived in new england for most of my life.

i am an artist, activist, tarot reader, feminist, slut, abolitionist, witch... a creator and a destroyer.

i identify on the ace spectrum. i believe very strongly in autonomy, freedom, reproductive justice and body/sex positivity.

i am here for art, justice, and love in all forms.🖤

i would like to be thick lush moss high up on a tree in the middle of the forest where nobody can reach me except for birds, squirrels, and little slug friends

As much as you think you are not the kind of person who could be sucked into a "cult", I promise you: with the right set of circumstances, character traits, unresolved trauma, community pressure, and social heirarchy...almost anyone could.

haven’t been on here in a minute, how is everyone?

sending big energy and love to anyone with a strained or non-existent relationship with family of origin over the society sanctioned holiday period 💕

And a huge part of taking the burden off Black women and femmes is educating yourself. I promise you, Black femmes are *tired*. Don't be yet another weight they have to carry as they make the choice whether to: a) give you a lengthy and exhausting 101 trying to validate their own fucking life experiences against your defensiveness and ingrained fragility, b) suffer in silence as you retraumatize them, or c) drop you altogether. Confront your own internal hangups, do your own research. Be a friend on equal footing, not a child who expects their care and teaching.

Also, I'd really like to see the masses form a strong community outside of the corporate social media so I think I'll try to engage more frequently/openly/personally in hopes of helping this platform grow. I don't know if it'll help bc I'm not funny or eloquent but who knows? It won't hurt. I'm sick of our labor and personal information being commodified and used for profit that only benefits a very small group of people. I don't want to contribute to something that benefits capitalists. There are so many of us and so few of those in the predator class, our lives don't have to be this way. I want to see the end of capitalism. I want to see everyone content, comfortable, and healthy. I realize using a different social media platform isn't going to create that change but I'm hoping it will contribute to it. #anticapitalism #EatTheRich #PowerToThePeople #ACAB #AbolishThePolice

Today I woke up and saw someone posting an article entitled "If You Are Not Happy with the State of Magic, Stop Giving Wizards Your Money"

It's about Magic the Gathering, but man. It really took me a minute.
