Hey, lemme reach out to you all for a second.
The years since the last election has been varying degrees of terror and hell for us all. I can’t pretend to know what the future holds, but i’m glad you’re hanging in there and surviving at very least. Times are allowed to be bad, but keep mind that nothing lasts, but nothing is lose. Keep being you and keep fighting. It’s a dark, hard time, but i am glad you’re here to keep it a bit lighter, okay? :)

Some very poignant social commentary on the nature of late capitalism from an Australian political cartoonist group "Costa A Comics"
I want all but the bottom panel of this comic as a poster. It's a fantastic summary of how late stage capitalism affects the average person.
It's my understanding the bottom panel of this comic is an unfavorable political reference to Australian Treasurer Joe Hockey for which I lack context.
Gender, transness, identity Show more
Any community members that try to tell you that your gender is too messy, or not "passing" enough, or not assimilationist enough, are asking you to sacrifice your identity for the sake of their own comfort. You don't owe them that. You don't owe anyone that.
It is now illegal in Pennsylvania to donate a book to someone incarcerated.
Instead, books must be purchased as ebooks through prison profiteer GTL or ordered through the DOC
This is an attack on gift economies and free speech/culture while expanding the surveillance capitalist, carceral state.
Navajo folks. Need your help. Can you send me any symbols that are hard to type on an English keyboard so I can copy paste them, including the l with the dash across it, any of the vowels with the ç under it, etc. Ahéhee'!

Summit Hike Pictures: Cougar Mountain 1/2
For anyone who missed it (I forgot to thread it here):
I made it to the summit! Also a few thoughts on the way down.
The trip down Show more
Man, you think "That wasn't _actually_ that far
And then it's been an hour and you still haven't descended all the way back down, and you're like
"Wait, I climbed -all this?-"
It's getting dark. But I'm only about 100-200 feet upslope from the trailhead
I did it! Current elevation: 1600 feet! I've climbed Cougar Mountain!
I'm pretty sure I'm on the mountain ridge now. Lots of up and down. I'm close!
Update: Passed the point where I had to go back last time. Reception spotty. Estimate I'm over 900 feet along the summit slope now. I am starting to see sky through the trees at the top. Will keep y'all updated 💚
2.5/4 quarts remaining
Summit climbing update: 400 ft up, started 30 minutes ago. Think I'm managing a bit better than last week, though I'm noticing the extra weight.
