allchildren: sarah fucking connor (☢ no fate)
The Holocaust bandom fic is back up in public, with our original comments deleted (but we've got proof) and, and it's all I can do to comment to her AGAIN, and I can't speak rationally for more than a couple paragraphs about it, so if you have any hue and cry left -- raise it up. And if you've hit the wall, which I certainly have, by fucking god, I hope the whole house comes down with it.

METAPHORS??

I think I'm gonna watch some lady action heroes and robots fuck shit up with really big guns, IDK.


P.S. Thank you. ♥

[Note: I locked this a few days after posting, due to anxiety, but since issues of Jewish identity and Christian privilege are coming back up in a wider conversation, it seemed like only good faith to unlock so if I participate in that conversation, people know where I'm coming from. As mentioned in the endnote, there are some things I said badly which I'm unhappy with, but as ever, this journal is a work in progress. Please do not link in comms.]

I wrote most of this a while back; it seems like time to post.

I've spent a lot of the last fourteen months thinking about race and how I understand and process it. Integral to that is analyzing my identity as a person who is both white and (~ethnically~) Jewish. The Jewish diaspora is not a new topic. But as I inspect it I realize there are less literal diasporas at play as well: the loss of religion, the loss of culture, to the point where sometimes I feel uncomfortable claiming the word at all. And it's a lot of complex interconnected thoughts, and after fourteen months (after twenty six years) I still don't feel it synthesized to the point where I can make strong conclusions. So instead of trying to, I just want to record some memories and moments and people that have been notable to my journey. This is very incomplete, but most narratives are I think.
