the assassin and contessa from coup are dating

no I will not be taking questions at this time

making my parents watch avatar the last airbender to learn them some morals and values

I just heard the phrase "friend of Artemis" and you know that would be a very good euphemism for lesbians or ace folk, and especially ace lesbians

Reminder that cancel culture is a thing white people made up to avoid being held accountable for their actions. ✨

me watching my friends who are teachers be asked to be human shields, pay for their students' supplies, and be guinea pigs: seems cool!

I avoided master/slave terminology in my code BEFORE it was woke

But I'm glad that as with all my revolutionary ideas online, the rest of the world is slowly catching up.

Maybe next month we can finally give non-binary people proper legal recognition, and maybe a thousand euro, as well

This is one of those links I think everyone ought to have, because if you can see a fuckhead coming you can take a much wider variety of steps to ensure the safety of yourself and your community.

Share as widely as you like, I'm turning notifications off.

uspol | decolonization 

The Supreme Court's recognition of tribal sovereignty in OK has me returning to Eve Tuck & K. Wayne Yang's stunning essay "Decolonization is not a metaphor." As they say, decolonization's aim is returning Indigenous land. Anything else is BS: "The metaphorization of decolonization makes possible a set of evasions, or 'settler moves to innocence,' that problematically attempt to reconcile settler guilt and complicity, and rescue settle futurity."

I uh am not sure why it's okay on here to in lieu of pronouns in your bio instead have a joke about pronouns in the bio but uh pronouns jokes are always shitty

reminder to add pronouns to your bio even if you're cis

Have I got anybody around who speaks any of the Algonquian dialects? I need an expert opinion on a thing. #amwriting #writing

a cool thing about living with ADHD is that sometimes you'll have two items on your list that could be done in 15 minutes each but you can't decide what to do first so you sit on your ass for five hours feeling bad about everything. it's a really neat feature

Donations needed, covid-19 

ashaninka.fund/en

"The Ashaninka People of the Amônia River, from the Apiwtxa village, are making a call to support the indigenous and other traditional communities of the Upper Juruá River in Marechal Thaumaturgo, Acre, Brazil.

Our purpose is to raise funds for the purchase of support kits for indigenous and non-indigenous families who live in the forest, to help them in this moment of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The kits bring food, equipment, and essential products for the forest dwellers both for daily consumption and to strengthen their local production."

"All donations raised through this campaign will be destined to the emergency actions organised by the Guarani and Kaiowá Councils, indigenous organisations who are engaged in active efforts to combat and prevent the spread of Covid-19 in indigenous territories.

One of the most urgent actions are the sanitary blockades, a means of slowing the spread of the virus in our communities. There are over 25 blockades which need monthly maintenance with protective equipment, hygiene materials, thermometers, basic shelter structures and food parcels for volunteers.

The second front of action is directed towards the protection of our elders, who are the guardians of traditional knowledge and cultural history.

These emergency survival interventions do not excuse the government from its responsibility to protect indigenous health, set out in the Federal Constitution on 1988. We do not receive any support from the State, and all our actions are possible as a result of your donations. We thank you for your support which helps strengthen our fight for the survival of our People. please share our campaign in your networks."

From a foreigner's standpoint, Brazilian Reais are really cheap right now, so if you can, please donate to these and other campaigns that use BRL, especially if your currency is US dollars or Euro.

update/begpost/rant 

Hey y’all. I was hit with an increased utilities bill because my roommates moved out a week before they would be charged so now I have to pay $28.39 on top of paying my phone bill ($112) and for food while being without an income at the moment. If anyone is feeling generous or want to buy are things from me, I would be grateful.
