Thank you, Ravelry!
I don't have the energy to rewrite this, so this is nearly verbatim from an Instagram post of mine. But, basically I'm glad Ravelry has continued taking a strong stand against hate in all its forms. I am thankful that the owners of a community I love and have loved since sophomore or freshman year of high school have taken strides in standing against the white supremacy of the tr*mp administration in little steps, culminating in a recent outright ban of defense of him, his administration, and all forms of white supremacy and racism. Banning “build the wall” last year was a little thing, but for someone who is regularly affected it seems a big jump. Thank you Ravelry, for the way you support those in minority groups of all classes instead of twiddling thumbs and giving vague “slippery slope” arguments.
