Conceit: CALL-OUT CULTURE AS RITUAL DISPOSABILITY Feminist/queer spaces are more willing to criticize people than abusive systems because they want to reserve the right to use those systems for their own purposes. At least attacking people can be politically viable, especially in a token system where vou benefit directly by their absence, or where your status as a good feminist is dependent on constantly rooting out evil When the bounty system calls for the ears of evil people, well, most people have a fucking ear. When I used to curate games, I was approached by people in that abusive community who pressured me not to cover a game by a trans woman. Their reasoning was blatant jealousy, disguised under the thin, nauseating film of pretext that covers nearly everything people say about trans people. When I rejected their reasoning and covered the game, the targeting reticule of disposability turned toward me. What can we learn from this? Besides "lofty processes in queer/feminist spaces are nearly always about some embarrassingly petty shit," it's about the ritual nature of disposability, which has nothing to do with "deserving" it. Disposability has to happen on a regular basis, like forest fires keeping nature in balance. So when people write all those apologist articles about call-out culture and other instruments of violence in feminism, I don't think they understand that the people who most deserve those things can usually shrug off the effects, and the normalization of that violence inevitably trickles down and affects the weak.

Criminal justice applies punishment under the conceit of blind justice, but we see the results: Prisons are flooded with the most vulnerable, and the rich can buy their way out of any problem In activist communities, these processes follow a similar pragmatism Punishment is not something that happens to bad people.

Conceit: CALL-OUT CULTURE AS RITUAL DISPOSABILITY
 Feminist/queer spaces are more willing to criticize people than
 abusive systems because they want to reserve the right to use those
 systems for their own purposes. At least attacking people can be
 politically viable, especially in a token system where vou benefit
 directly by their absence, or where your status as a good feminist is
 dependent on constantly rooting out evil
 When the bounty system calls for the ears of evil people, well, most
 people have a fucking ear.
 When I used to curate games, I was approached by people in that
 abusive community who pressured me not to cover a game by a
 trans woman. Their reasoning was blatant jealousy, disguised under
 the thin, nauseating film of pretext that covers nearly everything
 people say about trans people.

 When I rejected their reasoning and covered the game, the targeting
 reticule of disposability turned toward me. What can we learn from
 this? Besides "lofty processes in queer/feminist spaces are nearly
 always about some embarrassingly petty shit," it's about the ritual
 nature of disposability, which has nothing to do with "deserving" it.
 Disposability has to happen on a regular basis, like forest fires
 keeping nature in balance.
 So when people write all those apologist articles about call-out
 culture and other instruments of violence in feminism, I don't think
 they understand that the people who most deserve those things can
 usually shrug off the effects, and the normalization of that violence
 inevitably trickles down and affects the weak. It is predictable as
 water. Criminal justice applies punishment under the conceit of
 blind justice, but we see the results: Prisons are flooded with the
 most vulnerable, and the rich can buy their way out of any problem
 In activist communities, these processes follow a similar
 pragmatism
 Punishment is not something that happens to bad people. It
 happens to those who cannot stop it from happening. It is
 laundered pain, not a balancing of scales.

Conceit: Our love is the best love because you make my imaan rise, you help me in the dunya and for that reason l want to meet you again in Jannah! @islam4everyone Repost-beautiful letter from wife to husband πŸ’Œ Asalam alikom dearest one. I've been thinking long of how to write to you, whether it is worth doing, and whether you will be pleased with this act of mine. After much thought, I realised that I could never properly thank you for everything you've done for me, as much as you deserve. I found this opportunity beautiful and I won't let it slip. From the very first day we met, I could never imagine how much my life would be changed by the one who, blushing from shyness, forgot to greet me. The first glance I caught of you on our wedding day, it was absolutely clear that you will never hurt me, a man whose face was lit up with a smile of joy and kindness is incapable of doing so. And so we live with you, as they say, in perfect harmony. I got to think about what it means to live that way, a person who didn't love and wasn't loved could not understand it. But from the first day you surrounded me with care and love, didn't let me be sad over little things, and provided support in the hardest matters and decisions. You always treat my parents with respect and hospitality, they have long had a feeling like they've known you forever. You are a great father. Allah gifted us with a wonderful son, and I hope he will have your character. I am calm about his future, as since childhood you've taught all your numerous nephews and nieces obedience and trust in Allah subhana wa ta'ala. Throughout your life, you don't rest your hands and work hard for your family to never feel the need or hunger. You learned well the lesson of our Rasulullah (peace and blessings be upon him): "... speak good or remain silent." Not a foul word fell from your lips, nor do you let others talk foul. You never stint charity and you don't forget to make us happy too, you are very generous. You have always been generous with kind tender words, and you do not miss an opportunity to praise me even for the smallest virtuous deed. Your praise is magical, it never brings a sense of conceit or pride to my heart, it is pure, and the only goal to which I aspire at such moments, is achieving the pleasure of the Almighty through your satisfaction. πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡
