Pinned toot

It seems like I might actually manage to be more active on Mastodon so why not make an post

When I have to use a name, I prefer Ijon. I'm GenZ and just finished High School (Spring 2019). Currently I work in childcare with children aged 2-6 and next year I want to go to school to become a preschool/kindergarten educator. Then I wanna study psychology (I'm gonna do both. Somehow.)

My views on politics are anywhere in the LibSoc corner of the Political Compass. I'm still exploring so feel free to send me any easy-to-read/listen to leftist stuff

I'm neurodivergent, probably autistic+ADD (Attention Deficit Hyp*o*activity Disorder /s).

I'm also a white christian european and if I ever say some ignorant bullshit, pls call me out on it

Introduction

i have this theory that all my friends from the internet also exist in real life

The founder of wikipedia has created a new Social Media Platform called WT:Social. Its based on news sharing and conversation and doesn't have ads.

forbes.com/sites/jonobacon/201

The downside is its not free. either u pay or u r on a waitlist.

I am currently on one. If anyone is interested join using this link

If not boost this post so it reaches people who might be. We really need better platforms for discourse.

Other people: i just found a 5€ bill on the bus. I think it would be morally right to hand it in. But I'll keep it anyway

Me: I just found a 5€ bill on the bus. I don't think there's any reason for me not to keep it - it's not like the person who dropped it is gonna get it back anyway. But *guess what i'm fucking gonna do*

(i just hope the driver pocketed it...?)

So i was playing a board game with a two year-old yesterday. This *genius* rolled a one, shouted "seven!", made her token run over the whole board and said, in the most adorable voice ever, "You can't catch me!!"

Anyway, kids are perfect

by all means be bernie or bust in 2020, or don't uphold the bourgeois electoral system, or whatever else. that's your call, not mine.

but know that if a democrat--even if that democrat is a useless upholder of the status quo like joe biden--does not win in 2020, a lot of people who only survive now because of the government *will* fucking die, just like what happened in the UK when austerity passed.

elections don't go away because you ignore them. the consequences of elections do not go away because you ignore them. you personally might not be affected by four more years of this shit, but a lot of non-white, vulnerable people like me *will*.

my family lives or dies based on food stamps. we already don't eat consistently because even with food stamps we are exceptionally poor. there is no alternative for someone like me. there is no alternative for a lot of people.

as much as white socialists love to equivocate about how both american parties are the same because they're both liberal, capitalist parties, there are very clear material differences in outcomes between the policies of these parties and those material outcomes do fucking matter for people who are otherwise at the fringes of society

you, a fool: you don't hate mondays, you hate ~capitalism~

me, wise: actually i can hate more than one thing at a time due to my Enormous Brain

i need more

even though "more" is a weird word considering idk any leftist comedy i really enjoy. where are the left memes, the left satire shows etc. I think i know one or two leftist stand-up comedians, one leftist comedy author and a few meme subreddits. That's it. Someone give me leftist comedy

this is a random post to test something, just ignore it

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:
twitter.com/dr_arlenetaylor/st

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
