Fuck, why is literally everything organized through facebook? Is there really no other platform that we have to organize events on? So many of my local affinity groups have dead websites but thriving facebook feeds.

What can I do? Will I just have to keep visiting these facebook pages to check if they have anything going on?

Gardening and DIY are important not just because it gives people more independence and saves them money, but because it de-alienates them from their labor. There are few types of propaganda more potent than excitedly checking your peppers several times a day and thinking to yourself, "what if all work was this fulfilling"

@olivebranch For the most part, having a conversation with cis people about gender is a bit like having a conversation with your cat about grocery shopping.

"Kindness is the most punk thing there is" is a sentiment I strongly either agree or disagree with depending on its use

I find it remains one of the English language's worst shortcomings that "I empathize with you" and "I did something wrong and wish to apologize" both take the form of "I'm sorry".

I’m sick to death of people being precious about #GMO produce. Functionally there is no difference between a grape bred to have little or no seed and a grape that has been modified in a lab for the same thing. Y’all are just scared of science.

You wanna talk about #Monsanto charging for β€œlicenses” for their crops, ok. Talk about agribusiness killing the planet, ok. Talk about corporations copyrighting genetic code, ok. These are all valid concerns.

But the science is sound.

Is one of the reasons I am completely against attempts to try and get payment processors to cut off service to various people, groups, or industries. It is, as far as I am concerned, simply not a thing payment processors should be legally allowed to do.
