police violence against detainees
According to anonymous accounts, Cincinnati police held protestors outside in cuffs for 9 hours, denied them food, water or bathroom breaks. Protestors cried, fainted, vomited and pissed themselves as the cops watched and laughed. A pregnant woman was slammed into the wall belly first.

Fuck. Off. Pigs.
You will never be done decolonizing your mind. You will never be done learning to not be racist.
You will do well for days, weeks, months, or even years, and then you will say or do something racist.
Accept that reality now. Set your mind on accepting that reality and apologizing for it now. Because if you don't, we'll see what's happened on the fediverse this past week play out again. White people being fragile and guarding their egos under a guise of "hurt feelings."
Thinking of starting an AA style group for white people where we replace alcohol with being racist.
"Hi, I'm Sandrockcstm, and I'm a racist."
Maybe if we can get comfortable naming what we've all been conditioned to be, we can start focusing on ourselves and doing the goddamn work of decolonizing, instead of continuing to be blissfully racist towards the people we claim to be allies to.
Part of me reminisces about the magical times with my ex-wife. everything was so great in the beginning that it was like a dream.
But then I remember how she treated me after that... and especially after we got married. We chatted in a public webcam room the other day and it was a pleasant convo but it just stirred up a bunch of upsetting feelings. I’m happier without her and won’t go back. But god, I really wanted us to work out. I put everything I had into that relationship.

Asking For Help, Boosts Appreciated
hey guys, my boyfriend and i are moving soon. I lost my job due to CV19, and we can't afford to stay where we are right now, especially with our roommate situation, so we will be moving by the end of the month. We need a little bit of help with the costs associated, basically travel and renting a moving van if possible. Anything helps, and i'm very grateful for you all
musings regarding my life with autism
Call me anti-science but I think establishing the societal expectation that autistic people can’t read social cues is problematic.
All my life I have been taught that I am deficient at doing that. It may have been true at one point. But today as a very fully grown adult it adds a lot of stress to my life. Now I am HYPERSENSITIVE to social cues and I over interpret EVERYTHING. Hamstrings my social life & especially my dating life. It sucks.
Like University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto, whose $1.5m/year pay is fully intact, even as he announces 1,500 furloughs for health-care workers in the UK system. (His VP, at $1.4m/year, also has nothing to fear from the cuts).
As UK grad instructor Zeke Perkins told Emily Shugerman for The Daily Beast, "We’ve been calling on the administration to provide for those who make the least and take cuts themselves. They could cut their salaries significantly and save hundreds of jobs."
