@ticky I'm upset at myself for not noticing that earlier.
Every home needs at least two lubricants in order to service most machines: An oil and a grease.
An oil is a thin liquid that penetrates into tight spaces and can be used to lubricate bearings. Unfortunately, it also tends to migrate away from the surface on which it was applied which can be a problem for gear trains and hinges and the like. It can also migrate to surfaces that people touch.
Grease is thick and stays put but you can't wick it into tight spaces.

Don't forget to vote! With the rise of fascist ideas being a very real and tangible thing that effects us all, it's more important to use your voice against them than it ever has been in our lifetimes.
by the way, there's no "wrong" way to be non-binary. you're valid being masc-presenting and you're valid being femme-presenting and i know not having a clear map to your identity and presentation can be hard sometimes but we're all here learning together and we're all here to remind you that there are no rules, no right and wrong, just some great folks figuring how how they wanna define themselves

Honestly, throwing milkshakes at fascist politicians wearing cheap suits is just perfect because it just makes them into something to be laughed at, which robs them of any power they may have.
Engaging with them is futile, because they won't change their terrible opinions. Arguing with them is exactly what they want. Campaigning or protesting against them still gives them publicity.
But turn them into a joke in public, and the best they can do is just walk away.
so facebook says "here embed this code" and now the site/app tells fb everything you do there. fb knows who you are on a creepy-intimate level, so when the soap company buys advertising on fb, they target that advertising at other people who will be likely to make those same purchases
the creepy part is that it works very well. at this point basically every website on the entire internet is sending that data about you back to fb, where they can reassemble it into your entire digital footprint
@DokoroNuki Big hugs to you, and to everyone reading this as well!
