Really humbled to have been a part of such a wonderful series of talks. Huge love to all my fellow presenters!
First #summerschool talk I could get to this year - @Kat's talk on what we do with 🚙s
violence, christian missionaries, "uncontacted" tribes (as if we had to contact every last bloody tribe out there and give them jesus and CiViLiSaTiOn)
American Christian Missionary: What about some Jesus?
The Sentinelese: What about this arrow up your ass?
John Allen Chau was a colonialist dumbfuck who «embarked on an expedition to North Sentinel Island, which he considered to be "Satan's last stronghold on Earth"[... .]» and as a thank you got shish-kebabed by the islanders, who were also kind enough to give him a burial, unknowingly risking getting old world diseases.
The Christian missionary is among the most annoying things on the face of this earth. No other religion does this. There are no Muslim missionaries (except, you know, terrorists). No Jewish missionaries I know of, no Buddhist, Sikh, Shinto... missionaries. These people of course discuss and maybe even evangelise their sects within their religion sometimes, and sometimes even outwards, but nobody's never done it nowhere near the scale Christians have done it even in the 21st damned century.
There really needs to be an end to these pathogen-spreading, cultural-genociding, personal-space-breaching, colonially-acting, often racist and definitionally discriminatory, Occidentally-minded nuisances. What's wrong with these people?
And then "rEfUgEsEs ImIgRanTs WaNa KIlL OuR CiViLiZsaTIoN", these same fundamentalists say...
It's so great to see #SummerSchool back for a second year - was so proud to present at least year's event, and I love that it's now a continuing tradition in the Fediverse!
