The Loccubus ramble
so, for starters, this is Loccubus
The initial idea is based on a dreampost from a while back but it really resonated with me for a number of reasons that I needed to sit and reflect upon, 'cause when I drew this I basically just took a bunch of personal hangups and woes and blahdyblahblah and just threw it all onto the paper
why crypids fucking sucks, an essay. CW meta, ableism, anti-furry and anti-kin sentiments, and just generally people being fucking awful.
So, crypids is basically just an instance full of anti kinnies. They house a lot of deep staters, and i don’t know if you know about deepstate, but that’s a different story but all you really need to know is that deepstate has mocked and kicked out several people for being kin, and they are usually the arbiters of the “being kin is weird” discourse
A part of the application process for being a crypid is assigning yourself a persona of sorts. Some people are aliens or creatures from folklore, you get the jist. I only mention it because I think it’s deeply ironic.
So, crypids has been very problematic in the past, and skeleton has been known for being a huge fucking wimp, never doing literally anything within his own instance (idk how good he is about suspending other instances), and never speaking out against his users. Skeleton has this weird relationship with them. His users adore him, and he is their “protector” of sorts. This dynamic is incredibly problematic for an admin to have, since every action taken against the users makes them feel like that relationship is being compromised.
Many of their users, (I’ve had crypids suspended so long that I really don’t remember their names anymore) have some pretty atrocious opinions. Such as comparing furries to zoophiles, saying some trans women have basically the same privilege as men if they came to fedi as men, that posting leaked nudes of celebrities is okay and funny, but the most long lived and infamous of the crypids hills they have died on is the kinnie discourse.
Now, many of skeletons users hate kinnies and have for a long time. They justify their hatred by claiming that being kin is a mockery of trans people, some even going to far as to claim that kin s, an essay. CW ableism, anti-furry and anti-kin sentiments, people existing will prevent trans people from getting medical care in the future. This is just a thinly veiled excuse to bully people they think are weird, of course, especially since 99% of people who kin are queer. The bullying has been going on as long as the discourse has existed, and skeleton did nothing.
But a few months ago, a user by the name of dayglochainsaw, who then was on efdn, completely unprompted, started attacking kinnies. He said things like “if people are going to hate me for not giving into these people’s delusions, then they don’t matter to me” and went on a complete meltdown, calling us mentally ill, how we are weird and combative and we shouldn’t exist, and how he has no idea how any “normal, sane” person would tolerate our presence, let alone “play along”. We told him that it wasn’t any of his business and to not bully people who aren’t hurting anyone, but that wasn’t good enough for him. He went on for like, 2 or 3 hours
Dayglo was kicked off efdn that same day
But skeleton? Skeleton had the gull to AGREE. He posted “Dayglo was right” and then posted what you see in the screenshot, and he had to throw in the lie that kin folks think theyre oppressed. This is what made me suspend crypids. Crypids accepted dayglo, and he is there to this day. To me, any user that accepted this behavior from their admin, let alone an admin which they all revere, it was really an acknowledgement from every user who did not move that they simply did not give one single fuck about me or who I am, and that bullying was cool and good if the person you were bullying was weird enough
So yea, fuck crypids.
Find a better instance
2 posts from social skeleton. first says "dayglo was right" in all caps. second immediately after it is CWed "discourse; sincere" and reads "im gonna quit beating around the bush. i find kinnies strange, and they make me uncomfortable. i do not believe they are actually animals or ficitional charavyers or whatever. i find their insistence that theyre being oppressed deeply troubling, and i see how that argument hurts trans friends whom i love. im not saying thats the opinion of crypids as a whole, but those are my feelings."
