Pinned toot

I like my new profile picture! Somehow, I feel like the purple-pink chives flower manages to represent my masculinity.

In conclusion: Staying alive is solarpunk as fuck.

So stay punk as fuck, and solar to the molar*!

(* Possibly dorky parallel to "armed to the teeth", but fewer weapons and more greens)

Probably shortest manifesto I will ever write:

Cyberpunk is our past.
Solarpunk is our future.

If you really have to replace some of the letters in "fuck" with asterixes (asterii?), why not make it *u**?

Then it could plausible also be burn, turn, dump, rush, etc.

Radical, active listening is sooooo hard, but very often extremely worth it. I've learned a lot from PoC here on Mastodon already, so I just want to throw a small "thank you" into the ether.

Thank you :blobheartcat:

Fuck a world of forced specialization. You can be a farmer AND a philosopher. You can be a carpenter and a portraitist. You can be a lawyer and an electrician. You can be a mycologist and a flautist, a bookbinder and a skateboarder, a chemist and a stripper, an upholsterer and an Aramaic scholar, a gymnast and a fisherman. You can be so many things, any combination of things that you love or like or are interested in or want to try. Idgaf! If you only want to do one thing? That's fucking awesome and good too!

But I refuse to accept a world where a farmer must be just a farmer, a carpenter just a carpenter. Labors of body, mind, and spirit can all fit together, no matter what capitalism says.

anarchist history 

tfw the desire to build intentional communities clash with the anxiety and disinterest in interacting with strangers in a physical space

reminder that there's no such thing as 'hatewatching,' or dragging an ad, or quote-tweeting some racist politician. there's literally an entire school of 'outrage-based advertisting' that seeks to exploit your reactions because hating something enough to yell about it manipulates people into getting more eyes on the thing they're hawking. the idea that you Have To Respond is a brain-divot they're trying to sneak in through.

you know what does work? deplatforming.

Fun fact about water and density 

I am a man, and I should dress like a woman if I were not such a coward.

That is, I should revel in velvets, in silks and satins, in plumes and ruffles, in rich or delicate colors, in daring and dashing modes, in endless variety suited to my whim, to the weather or the occasion. It would be great fun. It would be an artistic gratification. But I don't dare.

In the days of knighthood, when men were really breve, they out-dressed the women; but in these degenerate days we do not venture our fancies beyond cravats. No man in modern times has dared to dress as he pleased, except Oscar Wilde, and we buried him with craven hisses.

We men rail at women's fashions, but in our hearts we know ourselves to be the slaves of fashion, of one dull, deadly, monotonous fashion, which we hate, but from which we are too cowardly to free ourselves.

I made a Loomio account to join the sunbeam coop loomio, but apparently there's no mobile app?
The web interface doesn't strike me as easy to navigate on first glance :/

i'm here, i'm queer, i'm tired of US people thinking their experiences are representative of the entire world
