Hi, I'm Joshua. I'm an #ActuallyAutistic adult (yes, we exist!). I'm a shy, socially anxious introvert. I enjoy video games and advocating for autism acceptance, ending stigma, sex worker rights, free speech, human rights, and the prevention of child sexual abuse.
I Liked a @YouTube@twitter.com video "Election Results 2020: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)" https://buff.ly/3eIVAtb
If you needed proof that the Democratic party is *at best* incompetent, then look no further than early attempts to push the idea that if only they do more of what led to Trump in the first place that things will get better. I submit energy is best spent @4aPeoplesParty@twitter.com
Let’s not forget that the ‘norm’ is what created Trump in the first place. There needs to be progress. We don’t need to go back to what was... if that happens we are going to be exactly where we were 4 years from now with likely, a more dangerous candidate than Trump.(thread 1/3)
Which is the closest to your political ideology?
The Democratic party has done NOTHING to earn our trust. All they have done is stab progressives in the back over and over and over again.
The Democratic party is a right-wing capitalist party with a few left members.
"It’s our opinion that we need to move away from the abstinence/criminal centric approach that is often taken when it comes to sexting, and move to a more asymmetrical, holistic, educational/ harm reduction approach" https://buff.ly/38soKM4

Kamala Harris has endangered sex workers going back to her days as SF DA. She is also not a unique threat. She may even be less of one as VP. I did these two roundups to give ten years of perspective to the last week’s arguments over her dangerousness: https://twitter.com/melissagira/status/1325616242779189249?s=21 https://twitter.com/melissagira/status/1325540980410494982
“Countries pouring money into fossil fuels to fight recession”.
So this is what our leaders mean when they talk about a so-called “green recovery” and “listening to the children”.
No one is coming to our rescue.
It’s up to us.
We’re on our own.
While members of Congress acknowledge that a few flawed companies have too much control over online speech, they’ve consistently failed to enact structural solutions to the lack of meaningful competition in social media. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2020/10/congress-fails-ask-tech-ceos-hard-questions
Punch left, capitulate to Republicans, feed the people empty platitudes, and govern for their corporate donors is who the “Democratic” party really is.
My new twitter account. While im waiting until my first account get unsuspended. Retweet this :")
Don't forget that the "end demand" rhetoric embaced by the US government over the last two deades classifies sex work as a form of "violence against women". https://twitter.com/BostonJoan/status/1325255345204322306
If you would like to discuss #trafficking during the pandemic, start here: This is a pay freeze specifically for #migrant farm labor, an essential service who is required to work. DOL has also refused to mandate safety standards for ag work.
REMEMBER: The US electoral system could be A LOT better:
- ranked-choice voting
- automatic registration
- paper ballots
- make election day a holiday
- Blockchain open source voting
- publicly finance elections
Our elections are broken because the oligarchs want them that way.
40 years of Democrats voting "the lesser of the two evils" resulted in @realDonaldTrump@twitter.com
Explain to me again how following that same policy in 2020 will somehow magically lead to a better future for the 99%.
Time for a new political direction. @4aPeoplesParty@twitter.com
I use porn about 4x a week and my sex life have greatly improved!
I learn new positions, techniques, different ways to get to know my body by masturbating, better relationship with my boyfriend, and I’m way more sex positive and I don’t feel ashamed or guilty for it!
@ACLU@twitter.com you do so much and I thank you.
But please look into SESTA/FOSTA and the EARN IT Act and how they are censoring free speech and taking away our rights.
SESTA/FOSTA has already passed and needs to be repealed!
EARN IT Act is heading towards being approved which is bad https://twitter.com/stephenlemons/status/1325204874452037632
