Hello, I moved from Mastodon.Social to Sunbeam.City!
I'm Eddie, I use they/them pronouns, I'm vegan and low waste. I make valiant efforts to grow my own food and love sewing.
Always antifacist and a proud anarchist. :vegan: :ra: :weed:

All transportation modes should be free.

If you rely on it to get where you need to go, there should not be a fee to use it. Cost of transit results in keeping poor people trapped where they are, which exacerbates inequality.

Since 1st June 2019, I’ve only paid for 36% of my train journeys.

It’s because every time there’s a delay I claim the ticket refund. I knew I was getting a lot but wow, 64% off over six months?? :D

For numbers: I’ve paid ~£137 out of ~£384.

someone on twitter said:

Voting isn't choosing your character, it's choosing your opponent.

Which is an interesting contextualization and good argument against letting perfect be the enemy of good re: candidates and moving the overton window etc.

If you're building software/platforms that do not include robust tools that one can use to effectively protect themselves from harassment, you're making the problem worse.

If you're not coming down hard on toxic and often violent bigoted behavior, you're contributing to the problem.

PV is proof positive that we don't have to deal with any of this non-sense if we just *try*.

If you have a bigot problem in your community, it's because you want it there.

Period.

if you think that your version of socialism or anarchism winning out is more important than actually winning socialism or anarchism, you are in no way serious about winning socialism or anarchism

Similarly, consent doesn’t make the ‘terms of service’ of facebook less shitty. A medical consent form doesn’t mean the conditions that made us sign that consent form weren’t shitty. And a romantic or sexual relationship where there is consent can still involve intense power imbalances and can still be abusive.

Consent isn’t a magic fix.There are questions beyond consent like: what were the available options? what options were missing? what’s the context? and very importantly: who holds power?

calling landlords parasites is genuinely a disservice to parasites because some of them are ecologically and societally beneficial, a charge which can absolutely not be made about landlords

G'morning all.

How's everyone doing today?

I found a great infographic on birdsite today about how stress levels affect #ActuallyAutistic folks

Here's the infographic: pbs.twimg.com/media/EKMrd5cUUA

Here's the thread about it:

I've been working towards something like this for months now, and it's great to find it fully laid out and clearly explained.

I am ecstatic to be back at level 1 (for now!) and able to be fully-functional-for-me
