I don't mind at all that my teaching slot is in the first batch of the day, as that then sets me up to present and then attend whatever I want for the rest of the day.
Hmm #mastodon question: How does one remove stuff from your inbox? I'd like to clean it up.
I keep trying think of something low-spoon to contribute to #SolarpunkActionWeek, which is on 8th to 14th March. The problem is, all I can think of is giving away some plants/cuttings. Which I do anyway, so doing it during #SolarpunkActionWeek wouldn't be special.
If there is something people have seen me talk about on here that you think, I could do with more info about that and it would fit in with the theme, let me know!
For now, I'll keep musing over this.
Why? I mean, I know why they taught that to me, that antisemitism was not prevalent in the USA: I was a high strung child, they were parents, they didn't want me to be scared, they didn't want to be scared. But who sold them that narrative? In whose interest was it that they not connect their own lived experience of antisemitism to the country where it happened?

With Neither Tyrants Nor Fascists: An #Anarchist Analysis Of The Growing Fight Against Anti-Gun Legislation In Virginia
"... Who advocates for poor gun owners, and those who happen to not be white, or straight, or conservative? Only ourselves. We cannot align with a Democratic political cadre attempting to pass legislation that will felonize us and endanger us to further violence by the police and the Right. And we cannot stand meekly behind the established 2A leadership, keeping quiet as they bicker and rant and platform white nationalists. We know full well that our presence will be tokenized when it is useful and demonized when it is not. ..."
How gardeners are reclaiming agriculture from industry, one seed at a time
Tae case for low tech cities instead of "smart" ones. #Solarpunk as fuck and I don't think the writer knows the term...
“Most people know about fight, flight, and freeze — but another trauma response, “fawn,” is at the core of what people-pleasing is actually about.
To avoid conflict, negative emotions, and re-traumatization, people who “fawn” when triggered will go out of their way to mirror someone’s opinions and appease them in order to deescalate situations or potential issues.”
The reason we don't like lablling relationships is because to be made aware of the relationship you have to each individual you meet is a very heavy task. It takes work to be mindful of every soul you touch, no one accomplishes it 100%. And it also means we'd have to look at the relationships we are forced to make. With coworkers. Fellow commuters. Bosses. Food servers. And how we have built in language that dehumanizes these relationships and erases the damge that does.
