US Pol - Protests, Fash, Mythos 

Keep thinking about how Dems spent years whining about the Tea Party so they could raise $ & continually punch Left by equating us w/those shits, while Dem leaders did 0 about them. (In marked contrast to, say, BLM, Occupy, or the anti-DAPL protest.)

But I'm supposed to pretend Biden will lift a finger to stop fascism. Yeah, OK. He's done squat about it so far, but he'll get right to it later... We just haven't given him enough of a chance...

US Pol - Facetious Insight About Kid-Free Lifestyles 

My kid would be "Vote Biden" and "Oh, Mother be practical for once in your life the whole FAMILY is laughing at us!!" And they'd have plastic RBG on their dashboard in lieu of Jesus.

Case closed on any possible regrets I could've had about failing to spawn. :D

"Don't assume that your brown family members aren't conservative" things 

*becomes fluent in portuguese, just so i can curse out family members*

*gets tons of push-back*

*learns several north african dialects, specifically chosen to thumb my nose at "the portuguese discovered madeira"*

but alas

groucho marx misquote 

i don't want to belong to any communism that would accept me as a comrade

One great thing life on Fed cemented for me: my continued near-total lack of understanding gamer-stuff. It officially has made me the modern-day equivalent of that crank down the block who still refused TV or FM radio in 1979.

[salutes] Thank you, Fedi.

U.S. Pol - Both/And vs. Either/Or 

Others: "Forget electoralism and organize and do things with like-minded people please!"

Me: "Uh, one way I've been able to find and interact with like-minded people is through electoralism."

However, I'd be happy to have other/more groups of like-minded people around me, who use alternate venues or means. I never ruled that out, I promise.

Stalling on finishing any WIP for over a week now. Believe it or not, that's not *solely* because of the US Pol Shitshow du jour. (If only it were that simple.) No, it's because every time I start to get A Thing looking sort of nice, that section of my brain which hates me says, "No sorry you can't do A Thing this way. It's too much like that other A Thing you did last month/year/decade.

🙀 Why me? 😠

Pdx pol speculation 

Okay what is it with the colored smoke?
1. Are they pulling from alternative stock because certain gases are banned now?
2. Have they colored the gas as a way to track those who get touched by it?
3. Have they colored the gas to look more toxic and intimidating?
4. Are they trying to make all the 2kteens music videos about the revolution come true, Big Dance Party Style?

Just sitting & enjoying my smoke-free-outdoors lifestyle.

Hope you are the same. 🏙️

“Remember Ruth Bader Ginsburg used the doctrine of discovery against indigenous people in 2005. The doctrine of discovery was used during the conquest of the “new” world to say that you can colonize any land that isn’t inhabited by christians as non christians arent human”

I have a friend who's spending the winter in Portland and wants to connect with people and social activities there. is pdx.social any good for this? does anyone actually use it? other recommendations for helping her get plugged in? I guess I could just get her on weirder.earth and introduce her around

US Pol - Repro, Same Request Different Day 

I wasn't just a womb and ovaries before menopause. So I didn't go to the polls and vote as if I were just a womb and ovaries.

I still won't.

So think what you want, but don't ask me to do that. And don't try to shame me when I once again refuse to. Unfollowing or blocking will serve us both better. Thanks.

✌️

Ume and Momo look so alike, but after living with them for a few weeks, my brain has memorized all their markings and I can tell who is who from a glance
