something i’ve been meaning to post a while about interactions onhere:
i’m always extremely low on energy so if you reply to one of my posts i won’t always reply back. especially if it’s on a jokey post and you’re trying to continue the joke – i usually just can’t keep that going! i can usually come up with a handful of good arrangements of words in a day. it’s nice of you though!

#introduction 

I’m Alex. I’m 30, my pronouns are he/him, & I live in Scotland. I was previously on KNZK – thanks @pisscotheque for inviting me here!

I’m an artist & film festival programmer but as of recently I’m taking time out. I have ME/CFS, an autoimmune condition that means I have no energy and most activity messes me up. So! I’m mostly housebound.

I studied in Japan & can speak some Japanese. I like Pokemon Go, experimental art & unusual music. Let’s 🙌 proceed 🏃 to be friends 👯‍♂️ on line! 🌐

recommending again that everyone checks out Not Going Back To Normal, a pandemic-era anthology of disabled Scottish writing and art: notgoingbacktonormal.com/

"Abled supremacy means that many of you mistakenly think that if you do get COVID and if you end up with long COVID, that the state will take care of you or that your community will. You believe this because you do not know about the lived reality of disability in this country."

like specifically all legislation going through right now, and the dedicated political project of both tory and labour parties, is to shore up tory power and limit the possibility of a future non-tory government
