Colorado shooter proves his idpol credentials by making autists forget how their made up rules work.

Post truth cope:

I guess for me this is hard because there’s a part of me that wants so badly to fight against just accepting a “post-truth” society, I want to say “look at these facts - really analyze this information and how RWers do ID games to cause chaos. THINK” idk how else to cope

Everything I disagree with is identity politics:

they literally want us to engage in vapid idpol to deflect from the fact that this was a hate crime

Truly this is what faith in your beliefs looks like:

am of the opinion truth or not I will use they/them and doesn’t absolve the hate. If true self hatred is a thing

I'm staying well away from all of this as much as possible for a lot of reasons, but I'm erring on the side of "use they/them but also acknowledge the complexity of the current situation and the context in which this has occurred".

Maybe you should shoot your mother:

Ugh the accuracy. Saw multiple tweet threads today claiming they can't be because the mom refers to them with he/him pronouns! Guess what! My mom doesn't use my correct pronouns either!

Why are people even handwringing this “self”-hate point?

Even if he is nonbinary, this was targeted against gay people. Is Latinx on BIPOC violence self-hatred too?

I feel like there's this weird idea that homophobia is completely inseperable from anything that happens to the LGBT+ as a whole. It could be all gays getting butchered and some gender-fluid autist will treat as a reason to start posting on her own life (which is what transtwitter did right after). It ends up not really addressing how homophobia toward gay men is far and above more hostile than to the others.
