If you pardon, we will mend 🙏🏻
And, as I'm an honest Puck :moomin_hmm:
If we have unearned luck :fingerguns:
Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue :yell2:
We will make amends ere long :lemon_dog:
Else the Puck a liar call :moomin_mad:
So, good night unto you all :space:
Give me your hands, if we be friends :blobaww:
And Robin shall restore amends :snufkin_aww:

Things that are good about being home in WV : all four of my parents' cats like me, swimming in the pond, not worrying about using water, spending time with family.

Things that I still don't really like : humidity, mosquitos.

In the beginning gender was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move

I'm seeing all these corporate media articles obsessing over how to tell we're in a recession when they can't explain the economic conditions that we're in.

It's because they want to psychological frame this for the audience. This supernatural force known as "the economy" is turning on us. It can't be ascribed to human decisions and motivations. People losing their jobs and losing more of their paycheck is an inevitability, they tell us.

How to Speak Economist.

"The Economy is Doing Well" = The wealthy are spending borrowed money that they don't intend to repay and their corporations are spending rapidly to climb up the pyramid scheme. You still may get fired, but if you do, it's for "strategic growth purposes."

"We're in a recession" = The wealthy have decided to close this phase of the pyramid scheme and take in their profits. Someone else gets stuck with the bill for the money they borrowed. Their corporations are ordered to cut labor costs for a period of pure profit. You'll get fired and be expected to pick up a job for less money, because "in this economy" you can't expect to demand more.

I wanna rant about lifted pickup trucks, there are so many here. the cargo bed has no hydraulic dumping/loading system and always stays level so it isn't very useful for transporting loading/unloading material, while at the same time you have to be in good shape to even fucking get inside of it. Nobody even uses pickups for transporting materials anyways outside of contract workers (who obviously don't lift it and if anything lower it). Basically no cars have ramps or are even convertable to allow wheelchair access when they are a huge van/SUV even though that is an obvious design possibility enabled by having a larger vehicle. Fucking dutch microcars can come with ramps and in the US I see vans with fucking cranes and lifting systems for the elderly and wheelchair users and shit it is so ridiculous and requires someone to assist anyways. They are *too big* and *too tall* and just cause cascading accessibility problems.

No, these things aren't for accessibility, you hear advocacy around cars for accessibility from the people this car-centric ideology has encircled and threatened and most deeply controlled who cannot see an escape. The soccer mom with multiple kids who is expected to be their personal gasoline valet from birth until driver's license and the status-wielding car owners who flaunt wealth or manliness with their automobile on a work commute full of debt-sink spaghetti interchanges that bankrupt their city. People who forgot how Newton's laws work and think bigger cars are safer and provide more protection (from the other huge cars) as a protection racket of momentum.

If cars are so accessible:
1. Where can I hop in one and use it now?
2. Where are the accessible ones which can be used without a hand, arm, leg, or from a wheelchair without assistance?
3. Why do they kill so many fucking people during the regular course of operation???

oh oh I never followed up on this tattoo thread but I have a first session booked for the beginning of September!

uspol, action for cis folks (tw: transphobia) 

there is a proposed rule that expands title IX to, among other things, explicitly restrict policies that prevent students from participating on the basis of their gender identity. this is a huge thing that will help block anti-trans sports bans.

the comments are being absolutely flooded with TERFy/transphobic trash (trans friends pls be very careful, it's bad).

go submit a comment in support of this amendment: federalregister.gov/documents/

#Maille Supplies for sale: I am closing out my workspace. I have rings in many colors and multiple sizes, findings, tools, display busts, and an assortment of other useful items. I'll post photos and a proper ad on my Neocities when I can, but letting folks know that I'm going to be looking to move the entire lot, not bits and pieces No reasonable offer refused.

The issue isn't what's pure, ok, good, healthy, etc, but what isn't going to leave you a shell of a human if taken away suddenly.

Most people will give up on life the moment things break down just because their conceptions of self are so entangled with fragile delusion-systems that they're robbed of agency and existence.

So far so good on this informal pronouns survey for anyone of any gender - about 1,500 responses. :)

docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAI

It could do with more men (especially cis men) participating, and more cis women too, so RTs welcome! It closes on Tuesday.
