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!

You guys do that on your own.

I thought "idpol" was a right-wing propaganda diversionary word, because all politics are actually identity politics, and pretending they're not is the chud way of defining white cis hetero male as the baseline.
