MAYBE black america would be wealthier if yall redistributed the wealth gained from the ALMOST 3 CENTURIES OF UNPAID AND EXPLOITED LABOUR UNDER THE THREAT AND ACT OF GENOCIDE AND FEEDING CHILD TO ALLIGATORS just MAYBE if there wasn't the constant sabotage by white people

but ah yes the negros have never heard of accountants and lawyers, that's where the deficit lies

Americans With Disabilities Act 

What’s REALLY fucked up is *i do okay.* I make stupid tech money, and paying a lawyer to deal with this for me is still more than I can afford.

Imagine how thoroughly screwed someone without that financial and career privilege would be.

Americans With Disabilities Act 

And because , I can pay a lawyer to do it for me or do it myself. If you have money, it’s easier. As with all things in this god forsaken country.

Americans With Disabilities Act 

It’s cruel and fucked up that in order to be protected by the ADA at work, I need to carefully jump through tons of legal hoops and work with healthcare providers with the specific licenses that are legally required.

The irony is that in order to get accommodation for a cognitive disability, I need to expend a lot of cognitive load *that is hard for me by dint of my condition.*

Who are the richest gay people you know? Let’s pool our resources and stage a hostile takeover. 😏

What’s so depressing about SpaceX (among many things) is like...we COULD make us some fully automated luxury gay space communism! But no, no Fucker Musk needs to be running this show 😒

« Bien sûr, dit le renard. Tu n'es encore pour moi qu'un petit garçon tout semblable à cent mille petits garçons. Et je n'ai pas besoin de toi. Et tu n'as pas besoin de moi non plus. Je ne suis pour toi qu'un renard semblable à cent mille renards. Mais, si tu m'apprivoises, nous aurons besoin l'un de l'autre. Tu seras pour moi unique au monde. Je serai pour toi unique au monde »

Autocorrect just suggested “sanitary pad thai” and I’m losing it

uspol, “blue lives matter” 

Giving a big presentation right at 9 am on a Monday already sucks, but then one of the attendees was wearing one of those fucking Blue Lives Matter T-shirts. 🤮

For a long time I’ve made a point of not using my Male Tears mug at work. Fuck that noise.

So... the Dutch city of Utrecht has an underwater webcam at a particular lock that is not used by ships much in spring. People can watch for fishes waiting to get inland, and can ring a "doorbell" to alert the lock keeper so they might open the lock if there are enough fish waiting...

mental health, Instagram, capitalism 

Last night it struck me that Facebook has all the information it needs to know the mental health struggles I’ve been managing for the past two years. Because it keeps suggesting posts by therapists and trauma survivors that actually do resonate with me.

But I really struggle to suck it up and delete my account because it actually is comforting to read those posts and feel seen. There are so many fucked up layers to that.
