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. 🤷🏻‍♂️

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:.

You must gather your party before venturing forth.

I think I’m going to start claiming that things that have nothing to do with medicine are “medically impossible”. Like: “It is medically impossible to fit this sofa through your front door without disassembling it.”

Welp! My character (over several attacks) just did 101 non-lethal damage to a henchman guy. Compared with 23 damage everyone else did. I love being a monk. So many punchings.

At the same time, we have to resist jamming all experiences into a racial framework, or else we risk a weak analysis.

Sometimes I think the most important racist project is making it rude to talk about race. Or rather, that silence and lack of ability to articulate race hides so much.

Quick bump again.

If anyone knows of any place in the U.K. that's hiring for C++ that's nice to work for, and ideally has to do with working on open source and compiler toolchains let me know, looking for an opportunity.

Microsoft steals name of Linux Desktop project (MauiKit and the Maui distribution) for their project that does the same thing and then blames Linux community for using that name to begin with (which is obvious trademark infringement as they've both had those names for years now). Abusing power over GitHub to then delete any issues on their project related to the name collision and deny they are at fault for ignoring the first search result that comes up for the name Maui.

You can tell they are trying to embrace, extend, and extinguish. But with blunders like this and the way their megacorp stooge bosses like to handle it they won't be extending anything.

People came from far and wide to seek the guidance of the Great Bear.

She was a fey of known importance; an enormous being with rune-carved bark in place of fur, with purple wisterias dripping from every knot and every whorl. Flowers bloomed in the heavy pawprints she left in the soil of the silver forests she called home.

Now, she paused in her tracks, for she sensed a small being on her trail.

Covid mutual aid fund for Roma, cw Romaphobia discussion 

Dr Professor Hristo Kyuchukov, specialist in the field of Romani psycholinguistics and education of Roma children in Europe, is organizing the fundraiser "Help For Roma".

Created 10 April 2020. As of 8 July 2020 it is only at €4,673/€10,000.

"Many Roma in East European countries and in Turkey are isolated in ghetto types of settlements, because of Corona virus. In most of the East European countries the governments surrounded the settlements with police and the Roma are not allowed to leave the settlements. There are no shops in the settlements and the Roma can not buy food. In some of the settlements there is no water, no disinfection materials, no tests for Corona virus. Several millions of Roma men, women and children in East European countries and Turkey are literary starving. We need urgent action in order to help and save lives. If the Roma do not die from Corona virus, they will definitely die from hunger. Let us help them as soon as possible. There are families who did not eat anything last few days. Let us help them to get through the pandemic crises."

I’ve given up workshopping a shitpost about the phrase “living rent-free in my mind” and landlords being bad. So pretend I married those ideas in an irreverent and silly way.

@Sylvhem Would it be possible for us to copy the red underlined :valid: emoji from another instance?
