"The trans Pride flag has been planted on the peak of Antarctica’s highest mountain, Vinson Massif, by trans climber Erin Parisi.
Dedicating her achievement to 'the resilience of the trans community' that 'took me in when I had no hope', Parisi said trans people 'showed me that it’s better to be visible and free, than live in self-imposed exile, and that stigma withers when we visibly embrace our truth'"

I did it! Finally made a full video showing how I make isometric mini worlds in #Krita out of Creative Commons photos and images.
This world has a Japanese tea garden theme, and I ran the screen recorder while I made it, then added commentary of the process.
I'm looking for feedback on which techniques used people would most like dedicated step by step tutorials on, so please share your thoughts.

I cannot tell if dragonslayer KNOWS that they're 2 drumsets away from a metal band, but either way they nailed that look. The logo kicks ass, the bot has AMAZING theming, and one guy is wearing fucking Zebra pants.

Are you aware of the indigenous elder who has been wrongfully imprisoned 45 years?
Leonard Peltier is both a hostage and a political prisoner since 1977.
In 1978, the hypocritical* government of the "United States of America" finally stopped making it "illegal" for native peoples to pray the way Creator taught them to pray.
However old or young you are, 44 years is likely a significant portion of time.
Take a minute or two, close your eyes, and imagine the 40+ years as he has probably experienced it:
Cold slab-floor rooms, stale, poorly-ventilated air, heavy with grief and helplessness, small cramped spaces, bland prison food and almost no genuine human contact.
No US president yet has given the indigenous elder the pardon he deserves. Unacceptable.
Time does not seem to make colonialists smarter... in my experience, is it just not possible to "give" logic to people who have none; failing to understand that It is not "primitive" or savage for native peoples defending their land.
AIM is organizing a walk for him this fall (poster details included).
In the meantime, it would be even better if the current US president (who served alongside the first black president!) would realize what needs to happen sooner rather than later.
* Endnote: White people had tried to use European laws and governance systems to stop indigenous methods of prayers since 1884.
(BONUS: Transcript from person making the right steps in decolonization):
"Nobody in the Wašíču MORMON RELIGION ever taught about suppression of indigenous prayer by the government! Presumably because they all wanna work for it?"
"Yeah, and make BIG MONEY and GREAT BENEFITS to buy more mansions, houses, and units to landlord over enslave renters with demands for CREDIT CHECKS and BACKGROUND CHECKS and INSURANCE scams and all the other colonist bullshit your COLONIST CASH SCAMS are putting more and more homeless people on the streets."
Everything on the blockchain gets translated into colonialist cash (explains rapid inflation of the cryptocurrency in $USD and $CAD).
Dumbass Jack in the Block (a two-dimensional box!) not dude to be associated w/anyway. Ecosteader spaces has all better filters.
Colonialists trying to make more cash will stretch out the transaction over more nodes (bad for efficiency), trying to hide something or steal payment from intended source.
The Uprising in Kazakhstan
A full-scale uprising has broken out in #Kazakhstan in response to the rising cost of living. Now Russia and Belarus have sent in troops.
In this interview, a Kazakh expatriate explores what drove people to revolt—and discusses the implications for the region as a whole.
Made some more patterns and a new logo for indigenous peoples ONLY to meditate upon, copy, print, share, do group exploit against our oppressor.
Is free to delete your attention from fascist drama; you actually get paid in sanity health; get focus and attention back.
Not even kidding.
Authorship will accept tips in gitcoin (QR code here is because cryptocurrency seems to be having a bad day?)
Bonus #qmec documentation updates far more beautiful and functional than anything a colonialist dollar could buy.
Indie knows her enemies are full of poison, hate, rage and spite... the fact that money cannot buy what they want most...

By the Democrats' own account, Trump and his cronies are rallying their adherents to an explicitly anti-democratic program.
Yet the Democrats’ only response is to try to use this talking point to gain an advantage in the next election.
Cognitive dissonance, anyone?
