terfs, fascists, emotional labor 

Social coop members: If you are having a hard time understanding the need to take action on the instance to limit fascists, terfs, etc.

Do not engage a trans, queer, or otherwise marginalized person asking for explanations of terminology or to defend their feelings. They do not owe you an education, and it's emotionally taxing to have to bring every well intentioned reasonable person up to speed.

Instead, DM me and I will do my best to explain it.

Some links to background reading might be a good starting point. If readers can just post recommended links here, I or someone else with time+access can put them on our wiki.
