hello, fediverse! here's my #introduction
you can call me ladina. i'm a writer and creative writing teacher from brazil. i'm in my 20s, white, fat and queer and i have c-ptsd.
my interests can be summarized in art, literature, music, philosophy and the search for knowledge of oneself and the world. sometimes i play videogames and ttrpgs and watch questionable tv shows.
i'm here to get to know other people, practice my english and share my thoughts on various subjects, especially brazilian culture, radical mental health and my journey through complex trauma recovery.
feel free to follow! if you need anything cwed, just tell me.
D&D lets you live out all kinds of fantasies, such as:
-Having everyone call you by your preferred name and gender
-Having a big group of friends who do everything together
-Making a reasonable wage as a freelancer
-Being able to murder the terrible leadership of your country
-Getting 8 hours of sleep
For all the people who continually say that "watching a thing" or "listening to a thing" isn't praxis, I think they've greatly misunderstood what praxis is.
Not all watching or listening is praxis, but I see this idea either in or around media touted as educational.
But that is praxis.
Because you're doing something to educate yourself and (hopefully) you're thinking critically about the material you're engaging with.
Not all education has to lead you immediately to action.

i'm really tired of only seeing young skinny white able-bodied neurotypical femme lesbians on media.
give me a story about a fat stone butch who loves her body and takes no shit from fatphobic assholes.
give me a story about a disabled trans lesbian whose service dog is her best bud, along with her loving partner, who sees her an actual person and not walking 'inspiration'.
give me a story about a 72-year-old black lesbian who bakes cookies for her grandchildren and talks to them about how she met their other grandma.
give me a story about a housewife in her mid-40s who thought she was straight her whole life and then realizes she's a lesbian.
give me a story about how non-verbal autistic lesbians talk to each other about their shared special interest.
it isn't *that* hard to come up with anything other than 'look at this white skinny femme teenager kissing this other girl!', ya know.

"this time we bite back / they'll do it over and over / until we bite back"
(cw for mentions of police violence and racism in the lyrics)
I hate the romantic idealism of "She's 'The One'" because it tells people that loving relationships "just happen [if you're lucky]" instead of teaching the truth of how those depend upon and can be created through continuous hard work and self reflection.
(Not to mention the prejudice against polyamory that such idealism perpetuates.)
