shitty behavior, but polite Show more
"FYI for folks who cannot (or will not) get it: polite mansplaining is still mansplaining. Polite racism is still racism. Polite abusive behavior will always still be abusive behavior. Putting a veneer of politeness on it is just a way of trying to make it deniable."
Hey friends! A former student of Atenea's came out and is no longer feeling safe about going home. He's undergraduate aged and needs a queer-friendly place to stay in Philly or New York from December 22nd until Jan 1st. Any one got leads?
Observer: "Wow, this person appears to have passionate thoughts about the interaction of fictional words and very real readers when it comes to dealing with nonhuman representation and the nature of whiteness, I wonder what her internal monologue is like?"
Me: "Haha nice, I figured out how to write 'gay baby jail' in Orokin."
This tech bro idea that "you can’t fight progress😤" and Zackerborg n Musty are the saviors of our species is the most masturbatory form of Manifest Destiny. There is a such thing as advancing backwards, & if all the countries currently still suffering or recovering from colonialism isn’t enough, just research our inept nuclear deterrence program🙄. We´ve reached the point where we could just ACCIDENTALLY wipe out humanity or bare minimum send our species back to the Dark Ages.

personal observation on US political parties Show more
The Republican party is, to use Max Boot's excellent phrase, 'A #Whitesupremacist party with a conservative fringe'; The Democratic party is a right of center capitalist party with a progressive fringe.

Hey guys. So one of my roommates, who's legally blind (can only see things at very, very close distances), has heart problems, and can't really walk anywhere recently lost his computer to age. (It's about 10 years old now.)
Due to his disability, a computer+internet is his only resource for a lot of things and kind of one of the only things he has. If you can toss anything in the pot or share, it'd be a big help for him
