We didn't start the fire, but we're defiantly using it on the bourgeoisie.

There's literally nothing but cowardice preventing the debate moderator from handing out Bat'leths.

All I'm saying is that if this was a Klingon debate there'd be a lot more killing and a lot less raising of hands

What if everyone using Harry Potter all the time had watched DS9 instead?

Taking a little break now but if you were a kobold kid or home-type parent and a human (or some kind of stranger!) woke up in your village... what might you do to respond?

For example, my mom would immediately set this human to work Being Tall for her. And then reward them with stew.

Looking for funny and creative ideas. This is going in a free twine game, tho, so PLEASE specify if you don't want me to riff on/build from your answer.

My husband mows our elderly neighbor's lawn when he's mowing ours. luckily we both have pretty dang small yards, ours was a big reason in renting the house... but she just stopped by with a $20 so he can buy himself some fancy coffees as a thank you.

To us, doing things like uncovering her flower beds or mowing her lawn are mutual aid. But we also don't want to refuse her offer of kindness in turn.

Spent part of the morning pulling poIson ivy in the yard and I just found more 😭

Suddenly reminded that its the time of the year when Americans blow shit up in the streets at night.

Someone here in state college is selling a guillotine for $200???

I didn't realize that nasturtiums were a classic trap crop for black aphids, until I saw a mass of them underneath a leaf. The nasturtiums are covered, the tomatoes are fine, I accidentally a companion plant.

I sprayed them with death soap, I hope they die.

for you it was tuesday, but for the dankwraith it was only tuesday

"It’s not that disabled people cannot be inspiring or overcomers or warriors. It’s that, often, these are the only things they are allowed to be. It’s that there are aspects of disability/chronic illness that are painful, messy, joyful and normal that are not allowed to be normalized in the set narratives available. There are individuals who are willing (and waiting, and needing) to tell stories about the everyday experience of disability and illness, but who cannot do so effectively because, frankly, people don’t want to hear it.

There are few symbolic spaces in which disabled bodies are allowed to exist, fully and unconditionally—and as a result, few material spaces in which existing as a disabled person does not require choices to be made between maintaining one’s body and maintaining one’s identity."

@gozer @Eweish Whenever talking about empty or destroyed cities, it's important to note whose bodies have been disappeared or destroyed. See Mike Davis on disaster fiction's racist history. We begin our fantasies of survivalism or utopia, etc. with the "cathartic" destruction of black, brown, immigrant and queer bodies.
