imagine if in the course of giving gifts to your community someone devised a system where you would have trade things based off of "value". who defines what is valuable 🀷

imagine if someone started tracking the trade with scarce minerals as they were considered high value

imagine those minerals were replaced by promises of rare minerals and those with the most rare minerals and ability to make promises just artificially inflated the number of promises they had

imagine that those that held the power of many people owing them promises used that power to amass forces to enforce the construct of that very power with violence

imagine you were stuck in such a system and couldn't escape. you have a card that gets rations of promises if you toil away at labor, and if you don't you are destitute

haha, that would be wild

*screaming at the top of my lungs* jobs do not have inherent worth! if there are more people that don't have jobs than there are jobs to be done, the solution isn't to arbitrarily create more work, it's to restructure things so that a person doesn't need a job for their continued existence!

In a world obsessed with tearing people apart for being imperfect, being compassionate is about the bravest thing you can do.

Random thought I had while watching dozens of birds foraging all over our garden -
....

Most organisms don't get to choose what they are.

For example: it is highly unlikely that a natural parasite will ever *change* and become something that lives symbiotically with its host.

We humans, on the other hand, do have a choice.

We can stop being "the parasite" and learn to live symbiotically with our host.

DO NOT talk about your crimes on social media, ever. This includes tagging.

Cops can read your posts, too, and when you brag about doing specific crimes you're making a confession that can bite you in a court of law.

(and it signals to your potential comrades that you're a loose cannon with loose lips, just saying)

β€œI believe that cats, descended from semi-social or asocial wild cats and having lived domestically with humans for probably less than 3,000 years, have no concept whatever of a rightful hierarchy of social or moral authority. It does not occur to a cat that any other being has any right, other than might, to its obedience, which is offered only out of immediate self-interest or personal affection. Cats are intensely opportunistic, practical anarchists.”

This comment pretty much sums up why Masto is clearly going in the same direction as FB, Birdland and the like. Poor, myopic leadership obsessed with maintaining social media norms that harm people.

Gargron simply refuses to see anything outside of his narrow perspective, framing an issue of safety as 'assuming everyone is an asshole'.

It is this kind of white male intransigence to reason that makes the web unsafe for anyone but them.

Happy Trans Day of Visibility!

Here's a fun fact for you today: Trans people have always existed.

My personal speciality is documenting the lives of trans people in Medieval Europe. If you'd like to find out more about this topic, feel free to read my threads:

And about a 13th century French poem which discusses a transmac person's gender-questioning mastodon.social/web/statuses/1

my contribution to #ourstreets because I love the idea

[I.D. : The first photo is a grafitti of a witch flying in a broom. On top of it, in red, it says "Selling black meat, number 190". 190 is the cell number to call the police.
The second photo is a colorful grafitti of Marielle Franco, a black and lgbtq activist that was murder about an year ago. Besides it, in yellow letters, is the quote "Do Black Lives Matter? They do." End I.D.]

There is nothing wrong with my desire for affection and intimacy. Nothing wrong with my softness and love.

There is everything wrong with the society that isolates me from my community and tries to tell me that my best qualities are weakness.

wouldn't it be amazing if college/university was just like a casual thing? like it's just a place you can go for free whenever you want, don't have to apply or anything, anyone can come in and sit in on a class theyre interested in.

sort of like a library. and there's no tests or anything, it's just for if you want to know more about a subject

wanna cover your town in propaganda/cover up fascist dogshite but are too broke to buy loads of stickers online? here's a tip for ya: if you're able to print your own (printable labels are relatively cheap) then regular waterproof spray from a DIY store works wonders to make them durable enough for the outdoors

imagine what we could accomplish if we had amazon’s infrastructure and tech for distribution

oh your town needs insulin? boom, shipped from one of the former warehouses that now houses a lab (and a school, aquaponics systems, web servers, workshops, a thriving community of scientists and poets and a heavy metal band...)
