GRS, CW meta for this account
I'm having a GRS and FFS on Tuesday, 23 July 2019.
I won't be posting explicit photos, but I will talk about my experiences. That will, perforce, include graphic descriptions of anatomy. I will CW all of this appropriately.
If this isn't something you want to read, or if you are underage and it would be illegal for me to send these descriptions to you either in US/VA or your jurisdiction, please either unfollow me or refrain from opening these CW'd messages.
culture, competition (-)
One thing I really hate about my culture is its fetishization of competition. We create needless competition in business, sports, politics, etc. Why? It is destructive, it creates more losers than winners, and it wastes resources that could be better used to solve our collective problems. Proponents claim it spurs innovation and achievement. Bullshit: it spurs cheating and gaming the system. Competition of *ideas* is better served by *cooperation* to study them.
pol, climate catastrophe, ‘extremism’

Fash governments are gonna fash, and ‘liberal’ governments do this too. Enforcement by state power ways favors the interests of the powerful, and the powerful want to profit while the planet burns.

As a person with alopecia universalis, I really relate to this:
I’m slightly worried this could turn ugly: https://www.richmond.com/news/virginia/gun-activists-challenge-gun-ban-in-capitol-square-ahead-of/article_7ce8eb14-e2ed-5e6c-a012-7ef3816aa791.html
I vaguely understand that there are hard right militia types behind this—the sort that are looking for a war.

Lev Parnas is spilling his guts:
What’s interesting here to me is that this pop’s Pence’s pretense of ignorance. If he knew, and took action to further the scheme (as he admits but claims he did in ignorance), then he is a co-conspirator and equally guilty.
Perversely, might make it even less likely for Rs to vote to remove: they know Pence could be impeached right after.
acab, houseless persons, squat, eviction
Oakland riot cops brought armored vehicles to kick houseless moms out of a house left vacant by its corporate owner: https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2020/01/15/oakland-moms-evicted/
podcast plug, MFF, nazis
The Worst Year Ever podcast crew (Robert Evans, Katy Stohl, and Cody Johnston) were at MFF this year, and the first full episode of their reporting on MFF is up: https://open.spotify.com/episode/6hROjgBmgSG1pFRLv9O1P9?si=srFmBgP8RiOsB7Ilrw5wUA
It's pretty good: a bunch of normies with generally anarchist politics taking a look at the fandom's mostly successful efforts to take out the trash and build a welcoming space for self-discovery and self-expression.
