what racist things taylor has done? tbh i only know about the white feminism thing, i don't keep up with her much
first of all white feminism (prioritizing white people) is inherently racist but there’s also the whole kanye thing where she spent the last decade enforcing the angry black man stereotype of it, there’s that time (and im fuzzy on the details) nicki minaj tweeted something about how woc dont get nearly as much recognition as white women and taylor took it as a personal offense and told her she’s antifeminist for saying that and it couldve been a man who took her nomination etc etc. and theres tons more situations like that but imma just top off this ask with a white lady classic: who remembers that time she met the Weeknd and told him he was beautiful and then according to him “just pet his hair for like 15 minutes” a story which taylor confirmed in a different interview bc she really thought it was a fun quirky thing she did 🙈
Iiaat to get worse? I dont mean in times of meltdown or shutdown. When I found out that I was autistic through weeks of research, I was relieved. Then it felt like I became worse. I know Im not faking it because it happened naturally, but I dont know how this happened. I know I wamted to open up and be honest since Im 17 and spent my whole life as allistic. I just dont think I couldve changed so much in only some weeks. Im more sensitive, I stim more, my appetite is off, and all sorts of stuff.
This is a pretty common experience for autistic people. Many of us, upon figuring out that we are autistic, begin to become “more autistic”. This can be for a couple of reasons. First, once we have an answer, we often become more comfortable behaving naturally which can make us seem to be getting more autistic.
Further, I think that many of us discover we are autistic because we are approaching or are in burnout. Being more sensitive, stimming more, changes in appetite, and more can all be symptoms of burnout.

I genuinely don't think pearl means to be condescending? Idk, I just remember in the guide to crystal gems it kinda explains that she really is interested, just not super good at showing it.
“Pearl has a hard time understanding humans and human stuff, but I know she really tries to be open to it! If she has a hard time talking to you, it’s not because she doesn’t like you- she just isn’t quite sure how to act around people sometimes. I think she’s just spent a lot more time around Gems and Gem culture than she’s spent around human beings. You should show Pearl all the stuff you like and tell her all about yourself! Even if she seems confused, she’s definitely really interested. After all, she’s dedicated to protecting humans and the Earth!”
That’s the quote you’re talkin about! I’m sorry, I couldve phrased that answer better. I agree when I say I dont think Pearl ever means to be condescending, she’s just not very good at conveying emotion and sometimes it comes off that way.
is every post i make just going to turn into a bunch of pictures of pearl? probably tbh
