Fuck CD Projekt Red for so many reasons, including and (probably) not limited to transphobia, using crunch in development, using the flashing light sequence used to trigger and diagnose seizures in the game, and cultural appropriation. 1/?

Hey hi hello yes educating and raising and helping the young humans you brought into the world is actually just as important as any other Political Work you do in your life.

"Our job as parents is not to make other people comfortable with how we raise our kids. Our job is to make sure our kids grow up in a family where they're being exactly who they are." Shelly Robinson

Reminder that while sharing education and information via streaming is part of what I do with my partner we also have a lot of other things going on offline from making games to raising and educating children (aka the next generation). ✌🏻

Fuck yes
Fuck yes
Fuck yes

emergency auth for Pfizer vaccine for five to eleven year olds might come as early as next week

God I could shout if there weren't sleeping babies on this bus

employers have had it so good for so long with respect to wage stagnation that they are losing their fucking minds at the prospect of paying people more

teaching kids stuff is fun but if you ask them about their favorite game or hobby they will tell you all about it and be incredibly patient teaching you how to do it because generally no one in their lives takes their interests seriously or sees them as an authority on anything

Breakfast for dinner for the kids tonight. Hashbrowns and fried eggs, and they both helped cook 🍳🥔

On Hawaii's world's first universal healthcare system - the fight was lead by this woman, Emma Kalanikaumakaʻamano Kaleleonālani Naʻea Rooke. She believed that access to healthcare was not a privilege but a national security concern and a right.

Anyway. While the kids and I cooked we were also talking about how they'll be able to get their vaccines soon. Neither of them is excited about shots but they were planning their post-shot treats 😂

It's weird looking back and realizing that my father would pick things out that he didn't like if my mom forgot and added them to a dish. And how my dad's tastes were always taken into consideration over my mom's and *definitely* over us kids.

Show thread

It's literally that easy to compromise and work things out with kids. I was having a memory of asking my mom about dinner and how if it was something I didn't like, I was *not allowed* to suggest other things and I was definitely *not allowed* to pick out things I didn't like while eating.

Show thread

Made (not)meat sauce and pasta for dinner with the kids. M (9) said "I like mushrooms but Z doesn't so we don't have to have them." Z (7) said "I could pick them out". So we added mushrooms to the sauce, and Z picked them out for M and I to eat.

Let's talk about Intergalactic Silk Roads, Earth Silk Roads, and indigenous futures! twitch.tv/silverspook

We'll be talking about indigenous peoples & cultures of the Pacific, our history, struggles, and how we can help unite East and West in win-win cooperation, rather than needless conflict!

As a native Hawaiian, Reservation Dogs is the best representation of our actual lives on screen, ever. Also, this all-indigenous written is the best and funniest thing I've seen in years, PERIOD. 'Can I be Mr. Camouflage?' in the Hot Cheetohs heist had me rolling

the founding story of the United States is that the original colonists ate each other rather than accept help from indigenous people when times got hard. that foundational fact, with all its hardness, hubris, and hate, courses through the nation's veins.

Happy Sovereign Hawaii was the actual end of the Underground Railroad, where we granted full citizenship for Black & Asians while Canada maintained segregation, brutalized Chinese rail workers, and committed genocide in its schools.

Happy . Slavery is alive and well with over 2 million mostly POC in US prisons, for the crime of not being white, putting out Cali wildfires and working for modern slave plantations (US corporations).
