Good afternoon friends! Slow going today–not a huge degree of pain but feeling lethargic, as I'd expect after a relatively heavy workout. Managed to get most of my morning missions done, but def. time for a long rest.

Lovely out again–clouds less defined, drawn into a soft gauze that pales the deep blue of the sky to the same pastel shade as the forget-me-nots. Colours of the woods becoming richer & more submarine as broad-leafed trees open their canopies.

May we be find care & openness today!

HERE IT IS: 17 different colors, almost 3km of #yarn, and a whole chunk of my time across eight months. I have finished my first #crochet project ever!

Good afternoon friends! Clouds dispersed over the evening, leaving a beautiful morning today–only faint sketched suggestions of the heavy streaks of cloud from the past week. Streams glitter, shallow & chattering over pebbles. Pungent scent of wild garlic thick in still, warm air, chorus of birds & insect drone.

Sore, hot heaviness in my limbs, goes to show I'm working as hard as it feels like I am w/exercise. This afternoon I'll try to take it easy.

May we find purpose & determination today!

People often ask me why I'm so critical of white America.

The question that needs to be ask is why aren't we all critical of white America.

Their hate, intolerance and refusal to be reasonable has resulted in an incalculable loss of life, talent and keeps a country of virtually unlimited resources in a states of cycling economic crisis.

Public officials do this because they are allowed and encouraged to do this.

But yeah, let's keep pretending we don't know what the problem is.

This is how white supremacy works 

It makes people feel better to think of some bumbling oaf that is purely incompetent.

But his administration mimics a history of systemic inequality targeting vulnerable communities in the deadliest of ways.

White men enjoy the privilege of being believed as 'incompetent' and 'hapless' while they continue policies that enable mass murder to happen.

Which is the exact reason white people elect fools like Trump.

This is how white supremacy works 

"But here’s the truth: Donald Trump is a racist. He talks about and treats people differently based on their race. He has done so for years, and he is still doing so."

Trump dismissed coronavirus pandemic worry in January

Politik, rant 

Wenn alle Argumente die ihr benutzt um zu sagen, dass Vermieter*innen scheiße sind genau so klingen wie die Dinge, die Nazis über Arbeitslose sagen, dann ist eure Kritik echt Mist.

Vermieter*innen sind nicht schlecht weil sie "keine richtige Arbeit machen" oder weil sie "auf Kosten anderer leben", sondern weil sie mehr Wohnraum besitzen als sie selbst brauchen und daraus Profit ziehen.

early transition take, 2/? 

ppl who have realized they're not cis, and are starting to experiment with their presentation, often get this like, weird backlash of dysphoria all of a sudden and that can be super disorientating when you've like Just Realized You're Trans, but now wearing these things feels uncomfortable ?? the reason is, imo, for the first time ever, you're really seeing and feeling how u don't look like the gender you want to (cont)

So I thought I'd make a chart. Turns out we are predictably VERY cis man, much more than other social media platforms.
