hello! i'm salarua, a random guy on the internet. i joined within a month of the Great Outage, so my account and everything on it was lost. so if i seem familiar, that's why.

i post/boost about anything i find interesting, which usually means music, conlangs, philosophy, design, current events (from a US perspective (because i'm 'murican)), gaming, and shower thoughts.

i'm pretty good about CWing things, but *please* tell me if i miss something so i can fix it.

honestly fuck anyone who sets off fireworks. people are trying to sleep, people with anxiety are trying to have a moment's peace, pets are trying to feel safe, neurodivergent people are trying to not completely panic.

if we could all just go back to the times where fireworks were only used as analog emergency notifications, we'd all be better off

Do not use open media to plan resistance.

Encrypted and private comms only.

Compartmentalize Identities.


conservatives are a cancer on the United States. corrupting culture, attacking democracy, killing us. the only way to deal with them is to treat them like we treat all cancers: with total extermination

Destroy them.

Ruin their lives.

It’s the only way you’ll be able to defend your human rights from the people hell bent on taking them away from you, if not your actual life.

No more “reaching across the aisle.” No more “hear them out.”

See where “reaching across the aisle” gets you?

I want everyone that ever chastised me for how I moved to bigoted people to hang their heads in shame. Then I want them to buck the fuck up and actually fight back like you mean it.

Stop. Sympathising. With. Bigots. And. Christian. Fundamentalists.
