When you realise what you did wrong, know that I will forgive you. It's the only way either of us grows.

For those trying to leave the US, I have legally lived in several countries and have a fairly firm understanding of the intricacies of their respective immigration laws. My DMs are always open.

I'm looking at a call for artists in residence. Even though the program is aiming specifically for people like me (mid-life or late emerging artists, working caregivers and more), the way the call is formulated and presented gives off deeply excluding vibes. As do the former residents.

It's a mix of hard to read, pseudo-artistic typography, overcomplicated wording and bulky requirements.

If you are connected to a project aiming for inclusivity, do consider the way you present, too! It matters.

KiezPilz, our mycology collective in berlin, has been forced to leave our community lab where we've been cultivating fungi for the past two years after a new landlord purchased the building and is asking for three times the rent.

If you know any spaces in berlin that might have space for our project or want to collaborate, feel free to share this post or send a message 🌱

You never need to defend cops and landlords. They shouldn't exist as occupations and uphold/profit from systematic inequalities.

In just about two hours from now, I'll be leading a townhall talking about the creation of a #Jewish instance (and possibly beyond Mastodon).

Do you care about #Jews on the #Fediverse?

If you're interested and don't already have the details on this event, DM me!

Imagine if YouTube was shut down.

It would be a literal tragedy for the human race. Billions of hours worth of creativity would disappear in an instant.

"That would never happen!" some believe.

But it already has.

Remember Google+? All of it's gone forever.

Or remember all that media stored on MySpace? It's vanished.

We must stop depending on Big Tech to archive our data. Their mandate is to profit off our data, not preserve it.

I don't got any patience for leftist infighting. If you aren't joining me in throwing bricks through the windows of imperialists and homophones, we aren't on the same side.

There is no such thing as being tough-on-crime, it's just criminalising poverty.

At least once every month or so my Humanistic Judaism discussion group has someone show up asking about Jews for Jesus. And despite people politely pointing out they are just Christians there is always a disruptive argument.

I don't know why Christians feel like they need to do this. If you really want to discuss Christ and the New Testament, maybe a Jewish discussion group isn't for you.

anyone have any electrical engineering projects (with soldering) that would be fun for two adults to do together? looking for a intermediate level kit most likely. i’ve done some research and there are quite a few options but it’s hard to gauge what’ll be too easy or difficult to do as a pair/group.

I really want a service where when one of my acquaintances says something bigoted I can tap out and someone can step in and handle them.

"We could pose a more fraught question: is such a valorisation of care something that we actually want? If care-work is overwhelmingly provided by a feminised population, then how does espousing the virtues of care not simply reinforce harmful gendered norms? Moreover, none of these books has an answer for the unfortunate question of the concrete character of the work itself: its difficulty, tedium and repetitiveness. "

I should do a series on Bundists. They are a really incredible strain of socialism that I think captures much of its humanity.

David Lewis was a Bundist who was instrumental in shaping how the NDP evolved in the 60s and 70s.

I can't stress this enough. If you support the Russian govt and its actions you are a supporter of fascism *and* imperialism.

When Lavrov states that Hitler had jewish roots and the strongest antisemits are jews, he is once again showing the extreme right face of Russian Imperialism that was killing jews 100 years ago and provokes with such statement new possible pogroms in #Russia. #Antisemitism

@dumpsterqueer are there any gts instances I can join? Also curious if it makes sense at some point to have web client that can access the features unique to gts? Like will Pinafore want to merge UI elements that only help gts?

I'll never understand the people who get super-defensive about using Pleroma. You use software developed by bigots and then encourage people to interact with those bigots.

There are so many alternatives and it feels like such an odd and petty hill to die on.
