Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.

Fuck capitalism.

Pirate Sesame Street.

I mean it's entirely redundant since I prefer to operate my pcs using solely a keyboard (stone age, remember) but still

Show thread

My laptop at work has a touchscreen I am amazed.

Have I been living in the stone age and this is a thing now, or is this genuinely impressive?

10 Principles of Healing from Trauma 

1. Your trauma was your experience, it happened to you, it didn't happen to someone else.

2. Other people are there to listen.

3. You are a sane human being who has lived through insane circumstances.

4. Your thoughts about what happened do not have to form a singular linear narrative.

5. Your feelings do not have to be consistent about it.

6. You can't turn back time.

7. Your creativity is an ally in this.

8. If you need someone else's opinion and feel like you might benefit from it, ask for it.

9. You lead the way and do what you feel is right.

10. Although you may have had a particularly difficult experience, you can learn so much from it.

Hell yea. I was able to organize several local businesses into an informal alliance against a local car shop which was creating a mosquito nuisance for us and environmental hazard for our local waterways.

Note, "was creating." In 14 days, since i first proposed the alliance to the businesses, we were able to get the business to remove the source of nuisance/pollution.

This is what "radical" "direct action" looks like - not just riots, but neighbors getting together to make life better.

"On Friday, General Motors summarily fired five workers at its Silao Complex in Mexico because they have resisted company efforts to increase production at the plant in order to undermine the strike by 47,000 GM workers in the United States. The victimization took place shortly after workers issued a public call to unite GM workers on both sides of the border."

i think its sad white people have been led to believe that the machinations of white supremacy somehow didn't affect them until a rotten orange became president

that fleeting moment of sadness is where my empathy generally ends tho....

Need some help from #autistic #autism folks! I've got a friend on who's working on paper and needs some resources.

Here's what she says: "...to write a paper on how the Neurodiversity Movement is a resistance to effect of neoliberalism hegemonic educational trends upon autistic people. I want to demonstrate how Autism Speaks is part of the hegemony and how society ignores the fact that they don't work for the best interest of autistic people."

Boosts welcome! TY for anything you can offer!

Hi Fediverse

it seems to me that switching.social closed down it's services. All social media accounts are deleted and the site is currently offline.

Unfortunately, I have no clue what happened, I'm as surprised as you are. I already contacted the French, Italian and Turkish version of the site.

In case someone knows anything about what happened or has backups of one/multiple pages of the website, I would be very happy to get in touch with you.
