shit guts says

Been wanting to say this for a long time so here we go:

Can we please collectively stop making fun of the “meth fandom” or w/e the fuck nomenclature we’re using to describe real people who finally have a space and community to talk about their substance use? Like I’ve seen posts lump this part of tumblr in with literal fucking neo-nazis and if that doesn’t strike you as fucked up i don’t know what else i can fucking say to you.

I’ve even seen this shit from leftists. Like how can we recognize that capitalism is built on the exploitation of labor and mass disenfranchisement of working class people - and then turn around and mock people who use stimulants to cope with the godawful hardships of that life? If you can’t recognize meth users humanity, then what the fuck are you even fighting for?

I have adhd, but I still abuse my stimulants because my body literally cannot produce the amount of labor necessary for my survival. Thousands of others do the same. We’re not that different from the people on here using meth. Everywhere ~drug users~ turn, we’re denied the chance to talk about our own experiences in our own fucking language. We’re denied the chance to find our own community and engage with it on our own terms. Especially us women who use. Why propagate that shit here? What do you gain by mocking us and people like those in the ~meth fandom~? Who are you helping?

And i know this probably describes only a sliver of my followers, but I hope it’ll reach further. Because honestly? Some people on here need to step the fuck off. 

I’ve never seen a post on my dash condemning this phenomenon (which is often treated like a joke, like it’s not about you know, real fucking people), and that’s fucking bullshit. I’m not saying no one’s said this before, but I sure as fuck haven’t seen it. We can do better. We must do better.

Not Quite Disney

A little background, we’re just starting our session after we took a long rest in the last session. Our characters overslept because no one took watch, so we’re all a little groggy. The genasi (Falric) woke up with matted hair, so our tiefling pirate (Crystal), who had picked up a lot of silverware, offered him a fork to comb it out. Falric has had exactly zero interaction with people before this campaign, so he just assumed this is how ppl comb their hair. Someone (I forgot who) said “is this the little mermaid?)

Falric: So what do you call these?
Wojciech (me): Dinglehoppers.
Crystal: Oh yeah, definitely. Very rare. I learned about them from a mermaid on my travels.
Rogelio (another one of our party): Would it happen to be that legendary one, Ariel?
Crystal: (In a heavy, very bad pirate accent): Aye, Earl.
Everyone: *uncontrollable laughter*
DM: (through laughter tears) You’ve definitely heard of Earl the mermaid. You’ve read tales of his legendary beer gut.

Got a hell lot of respect for women on here who warn others about these lying, toxic, abusive men. People will drag you through the mud, make a joke out of your misery, try slander your character and come talk shit to you in your anon box, but fuck em all. They’re all gona have to answer to God in the end so don’t worry about it, we’re here for you.
