Pinned toot

Hey, so, I've seen several folks talking about how coronavirus advice givers insist you should everything on hand for two weeks -- including your medicine, and how impossible that is.

I'm a small-scale prepper who has been working on getting a month's worth of medicine on hand for a couple years now. If you want to be able to have extra meds on hand for emergencies, here's some tips:

Okay folks, I've been asked a question about managing needs and expectations in . For future reference, as long as I have spoons and time I am always happy to answer questions for polyam folks trying to figure stuff out.

This will probably be a long thread, so hiding the rst behind a CW. Feel free to read along and share your experience/insights.

I've been stealing time to read more of @CaribenxMarciaX's book recently, it's well worth a read if you want a good solid essay on confronting architecture and colonial symbols of the state's power through Afro-Indigenous art with a focus on women artists:

Reading this paper about academic colonialism (it's talking a lot about what I talk about, how the language of discovery in academia indicates a deeper harm)

And I'm wondering whether that white person who walked away from me a couple weeks back is still planning to credit me in the work they're doing to secure their privilege in the kyriarchy, or whether they'll use the "abuse" of me telling them not to appropriate my knowledge as an excuse to appropriate my knowledge.

(I bet they do.)

(Curious why I don't just name the academic who has caused this problem? Because every time I name white people who cause harm, the Fediverse, at best, sends me a bunch of spam email, and at worst finds my home address and sends the cops on false premises. Y'all expect honest and open conversations about the future of whiteness but literally pull a gun on folk who offer it up.)

A friend talking about sex work, fucking on the outskirts, monopolies, and the failures of 'free speech' as a metric for acceptable discourse.

"Sex, Platforms and And When the Marketplace of Ideas Is A Shopping Mall"

Anyone proficient with setting up a Jekyll-powered website for github? I've made some progress but I really don't understand where I should put my images, both for structure and blog posts. All help appreciated.

Ever since I woke up I keep thinking that today is Thursday.

In two hours I will finally be right.

Have you heard of the Royal game of Ur?

It's a 4000 year old game found in a royal gravesite in the ancient city of Ur. What's truly amazing about it is that we've also found a clay tablet with the rules for it! The oldest rule book in the world!

I had not heard of it, until I found this beautiful Free and open source online digital version of it! It looks great, and it's fun too! And you can play two player locally

Give it a go and let me know what you think! #game

This is a podcast I'm actually really excited about!

Personal Shit, Relationships

The problem with talking publicly about relationships and long term plans is that if the relationships end you need to talk about that publicly too or folks who follow you can get confused.

Client didn't want this one (don't worry, she's taking loads of others) so here's a free #cc0 embellishment thingy if anyone wants it :)

sex adj, shitty book, sexism 

A couple of months ago, when something similar happened in Germany I posted something like this:

If it walks with a Nazi, and talks like a Nazi, and tries to storm the Reichstag^WCapitol like a Nazi, it's a fucking Nazi.

Someone complained, a discussion ensued, I called them a Nazi, was told off by fosstodon admins and now I'm here.

So now that this has happened in the USA, are people ready to see that calling out Nazis is not hate speech?

I needed this right now.

Also, this person is amazing and if you are on TikTok at all you should be follwing them.
