also you cant talk about family planning and sustainability while centering white feminists.

you think they know about land? sustainability and being in a matriarchal system in where they are the planners for their families?

so anyways back to black and indigenous women's writing...

thinking about how software companies slowly chip away at the idea of consent by turning every "no" into "not right now," every "stop this" into "do this less often," every "i don't want that" into "maybe later"

I'm doing a daily zoom check in in the mornings with members of a local queer mutual aid group.
I did the first one today and I think it's gonna be super helpful. Without work u gave trouble setting my own schedule and I end up sleeping the whole day away and my depression gets worse.
Having a video call I have to be there for in the morning means I have to get out of bed. So I do.

I used to be a "night" person, now I can't keep my eyes open pass 10 night, but feel really good up before 5 morning :D

Mutual aid isn't charity: it's contributing what you can to the community because you know you rely on the community for what you can't produce yourself.

Mutual Aid groups supplies aren't just for the homeless, they're so that none of us have to stockpile and hoard, because /all/ of us are, together.

And just think of the meals that can be made if we pool our ingredients. I know y'all white people forget to panic buy herbs and spices.

Housebound advice from a long-term housebound person, boosts ok 

I need things to do to feel useful during the pandemic.
I need suggestions for ways to advocate or directly help people. Being helpful helps me feel a bit more in control.
Ideas?

Crafters and fibre artists,
One way to help your community during the pandemic is to make up craft kits to give to folks stuck at home.
Learning a new craft can help people deal with the boredom and stress.
I made up some felting kits with roving, needles and a rice felting pad. Then I dropped them at people's doors.
If you have spare supplies, make up some kits!
