If you were ever bullied; thank you for existing. If you ever felt like an outsider; thank you. If you ever felt like the only one in the world who cared about you was you; thank you. If you aren't afraid of seeing reality for what it is and not what society thinks it is; thank you. If you ever questioned authority; thank you. If you ever stuck up for someone; thank you. If you ever befriended someone specifically because you knew they had no one else; thank you. If you ever felt persecuted for existing; thank you. If you ever lost your temper and apologized heartfeltfully; thank you. If you ever did a kind act for strangers without being asked to; thank you. If you ever cried yourself to sleep at night; thank you. If you ever cried alone in the bathroom; thank you.

Knowing there is someone out there who can relate to my worst moments and desiring to find and connect with them has carried me through most hardships. So thank you for being here, on Earth, at the same time as me.

Africans and African descendants have lived in England for as far back as the Roman invasion. Thus, non white immigrants have always been a minority a of British society. In the 13th century and before, the colour of someones skin wasn't considered a trait worthy of much mention in the UK. You won't find them in records easily thus until the 16th century. It was only around the time of Queen Elizabeth I that the expulsion of black folks in the name of white population growth became a hot political topic. It wasn't until the 16th century when black people were commonly distinguished as "different" by being referred to as Blackmoors - essentially "black blacks." Thus, it has also always been British culture to be racist and xenophobic. It's as entwined in British culture as the monarchy and tea are.

: Unceded. Undefeated

"Some of you may be thinking weโ€™ve lost. That weโ€™ve made an agreement with industry. That we are bending, conceding, giving up. This is not true. We will never give up. There will be no pipelines on our Yinโ€™tah. The Unistโ€™otโ€™en have never been defeated. We will win this fight, and we will do it with integrity and honour, as we have always done."

If you're moving from art to anarchist blogging, let go of all you know about giving credit.

Quoting someone's radical ideas to a new audience without consent can expose them to dangerous attention.

Reposts are harder to censor and remove than reblog chains.

Being a decent writer shouldn't mean we get popular and acquire social power. Valuing popularity encourages empty 'hot take' culture.

Fuck credit. Steal all my stuff. Our ideas should move freely and belong to all of us.


it's funny that people think the thing we had before cars was horses, no binch we had streetcars and the subway, and we also walked places a lot because we didn't live in suburbs the size of new hampshire.

The internet is not the domain of white sensibilities. It is not the property of the most awful people humanity has to offer.

It is for all of us. There is space for everyone to have healthy community that actually edifies and brightens our lives rather than make it worse.

Many people who just so happen to be white do not believe that and they specifically target people like me to ruin our experience and sour the well.

But they cannot stop what I'm doing. They can't stop what we are building

M51 is a galaxy in Canes Venatici, though it's easily found just off the last star in the handle of the Big Dipper. It is a grand design spiral that is interacting with a nearby smaller galaxy. #astrophoto

Piracy without a plan to support the writers you are stealing from is exploitation of labor, which is plain vanilla capitalism.

I've been using it a couple of weeks and I'm liking the Brutaldon interface for Mastodon a lot.

The slower pace works much better for me.  I recommend trying it if you're like me and your attention and time is easily stolen by automatic updates and infinite scrolls.  I feel like my toot perusing is a lot more chilled out and intentional now.






The myth of the meritocracy sustains capitalism. At the very least, there seems to be a sort of cosmic accident theory behind who succeeds and who doesn't.

But failure isn't an accident. It's built into the system.
