New account, time for an .

I'm a white guy, more or less living at the top of Privilege Mountain, trying to learn to dismantle and undermine that privilege.

Things I'm into:










Things I'm (interested in?) learning about:



• And all the stuff above, naturally.

This is, of course, incomplete. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Continuing :

In 2018 (at 36), I realized my sexuality wasn't as straightforward (or straight) as I'd previously thought. It's more complicated because of course it is, but I generally consider myself bi/pan :heart_pansexual:.

Show thread

Dead Ends (Netflix cartoon, recommended!!!) 

A quick run of other things included: multiple gay characters, a lovable talking dog, a depiction of social anxiety I was getting a little stressed watching it, Episode 9 is a fucking musical that is end to end bangers, honestly some surprising twists!

It's only 10 episodes long, season 2 comes out this October!

Show thread

Dead Ends (Netflix cartoon, recommended!!!) 

So, uh, how is this not a show people are losing their shit over???

One of the characters is trans. Like stated says "I'm trans" to another character, in episode 2. Their family being believability low-key shitty is just a thing.

This show also has an autistic character and the worst it gets handled is people being offput by just how deep her hyperfocus goes.

This show is amazingly good tbh

(Neatly addressed by identity flags and similar, of course, but look. :flag_pansexual:)

Show thread

Nations and borders are shit, but flags are cool as hell. A quandary. 🤔

Good morning, gentles all. 🌇

Why is “A Kiss From A Rose” stuck in my head? No one knows. 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

I took a cute video of many bees going wild on a bush with pink flowers, but I can't seem to upload it here for your enjoyment. Maybe it's took big. IDK. No error message. You will have to use your imagination.

On the bike ride to the school, I sometimes pass a parked car with a sticker that says, “Make tea no war,” and while I appreciate the sentiment the owner is _probably_ expressing, all I can ever think about is the deep link between tea and British imperialism that popularized the drink enough in the Anglosphere that a USian would even have such a sticker. Not to throw shade: I am making tea as I type this. It’s just a weird dissonance.

Fell asleep on the sofa after taking the 8yo to school. Just woke up from a dream that involved, in part, using telekinesis to smash Easter-Island-head-sized stone busts of George W Bush into each other. Dreams are weird.

So, boosts would be nice:

Do you know how you would start researching a weird topic? —

What I want to look into is the relevant history of the occult/magical in the territory that’s modern Italy, and their intersection with pagan/non-Christian religious practices, including folklore, over time (as relevant, but I’m interested how they shifted after Catholicism and into modern times).

Pls boost for visibility

Are you optimistic about the future of your country?

Please help me get stable while I am in a bit of a financial bind

"As I work to complete my program, I realize I cannot work any kind of “regular” job. Since I am trained as and enjoy working as a photographer, I intend to freelance to sustain myself as I study. These last couple of months have been particularly difficult as I’ve tried to maintain."
