The apocalypse has arrived, it's just not evenly distributed yet

just read an apartment therapy before/after article about a kitchen renovation and the person said they got rid of their dishwasher because they don't have many dishes to clean (fine) and that it seems like a water waster (completely wrong!!!) and I screamed internally. hand washing uses much more water!!!

When I lived in Washingon, DC, there were occassionally TV commercials clearly aimed at Congress.

This week's epiode of @librelounge is about the work @cwebber and I are doing re: Fediverse spam and abuse and while it's interesting to everyone, I'm especially hoping that AP implementers listen, especially @Gargron (since this work got fast forwarded due to a pull request)

U.S. Fascism, personal, FRIENDS: read this 

Okay, I've tried everything else, let's see what happens here. I'm a 56yo IT professional currently facing age discrimination in the job market. My skills are proven and broad. I can do operations, project management, service delivery; am versed in multiple OSs, monitoring systems, ticketing platforms. I'm a technical writer and published author. I'm willing to relocate pretty much anywhere for a job that pays enough to cover my mortgage. I need employment by Sept 30. CV on request. #job #dayjob

Hmm, looks like I accidentally picked similar color schemes for both my previous wobs... gotta branch out.

If 20% of a group are harassers (evenly across genders), & the group has more men than women… then each woman gets 16x more bad experiences than each man.

The Petrie Multiplier: in a group where x% are bullies/harassers, the minority will feel it (x/100)^2 more.

This blog post has stuck with me through the years. I like the maths in it, & I like the conclusion that attacking sexism/racism etc doesn't have to be an attack on the majority.

Put Your Head Among the Heads and say "Oh Cutter of the Heads"

This was a short animation on the theme of 'block' done for a local experimental film block party.

The title is a literal translation of an Arabic idiomatic saying.

The prompt was 'block' - shown as pollution/environmental blocking away of habitat, bowel obstructions ;) , and the executioner's block in the title and subtext, opression blocking justice and freedom
