We should stop with left and right false binary.

The real binary is between those who want protect and expand the concept of humanity, and those who want to shrink it.

@nonlinear mainly because im not a fan of humanism, but i share the sentiment mostly

@ElusiveConfection humanism is human in the center. This is more about what you consider human.

You can dehumanize AND be a humanist. Centering and ignoring communities.

(And yes, fuck humanism)

@ElusiveConfection dehumanizing means removing protections and negating resources.

It’s resource wars, an anthropocene thing. Sad af.

@ElusiveConfection I hear you tho. When we talk about posthumanism, the rights of lakes, or forests, maybe I should frame it as personhood.

Personhood is a legal construct, an assemblage of rights and dues.

Dehumanization goal is to remove their personhood, their rights. It’s resource wars.
