Felt like doing another intro style post

I'm and and i care about it so much. I have soft spots for building irl community (although thats on hold), uncovering history and aro politics (trust me, everything is connected to amatonormativity)
I'm interested in and
I've been learning about and how to remove them. I'm in the pnw so the main culprits are Himalayan blackberry, english ivy and morning glory. Clearing those to help restore the environment a d create public space has been my biggest pandemic project.

I'm trying to reframe how i think about parasitic relationships.
I've been learning about symbiotic relationships both mutualistic and parasitic. And I'm finding myself instinctively putting a black and white morality to it. Mutualistic is good and parasitic is bad.
That black and white moralizing is something I'm trying to remove as a framework of my understanding. But, I'm struggling to do it here.
What are other ways i can reframe my understanding of parasitic relationships?

"Though volunteer-run and collectively owned look different in practice across various operations, in general, collectives embrace non-hierarchical structures—critically, there are no bosses—with the hope to empower members through 'worker self-management and a consensus decision-making process,' according to Craft [of @WoodenShoeBooks]." bookriot.com/what-is-a-radical

I've been doing some work removing english ivy from a park. This isn't anything "official" but rather something I've been doing in my spare time.
I want to ask for permission and feedback on this work from the indigenous nations whose land I'm on. It feeka strange to do work changing and removing things from a forest without checking in with the peoples whose land I'm on.
But I'm not sure how to actually go about doing that?
Is it too small of a thing to bother them about?
Do i email the official emails of the nations?
I'd really appreciate some advice and direction on this.

#RadicalParenting Thread 

My son decided to wear a dress to daycare today. I didn't give it two thoughts other than the workers may tell him to take it off because it's a princess costume and the other kids might complain why they can't come disguised too. When I got the the daycare, some kids started pointing at him, not mocking, but def curious. My son became shy, but insisted in wearing the dress despite this, which made me proud of him.

video linked shows food, specifically toastable items like bread and waffles, but no eating 

i watched this video about a near-perfect toaster design yesterday, and i can’t stop thinking about how so many modern day appliances absolutely *blow* on a design level

please give this a watch, if only for the demonstration of this toaster at the beginning. trust me, y’all. 😂
