“I voted for him, and he’s the one who’s doing this,” Minton told Mazzei. “I thought he was going to do good things. He’s not hurting the people he needs to be hurting.”
White Americans keep telling us they don't give a shit about a healthy nation. They just want to hurt people they don't like. That has been most prominent motivation for the white vote since the country was founded.
There's another piece linked in the article that talks about how white cruelty is the point of their political efforts. Read this shit:
"The president’s ability to execute that cruelty through word and deed makes them euphoric. It makes them feel good, it makes them feel proud, it makes them feel happy, it makes them feel united. And as long as he makes them feel that way, they will let him get away with anything, no matter what it costs them."
I know people call my thoughts on white American culture 'controversial', but it just is what it is.
White people are not motivated by fairness, healthy communities and cooperation. They just don't care. Not even about themselves.
Asking us who do to negotiate with this culture to find 'common ground' is like asking a drowning person to be patient and hope water stops killing them.
White Americans would rather die than cooperate. Attempting to 'negotiate' w/ insanity is pure fucking nonsense
And I don't want to hear any self serving, weak ass whining about how 'complex' racism is in America.
If we're talking about why America keeps going from crisis to crisis and we can't agree the main factor is generational white resistance to morality, civility, reason and reality itself, then keep your bullshit to yourself.
Progress in America is so hard because white people _hate_ progress and have always worked against it.
White people aren't part of the problem. They _are_ the problem.
Super Princess Peach contains an item called "Tough Coffee", which increases Peach's life meter when bought. In-game, it is depicted as a mug decorated with a picture of an arm (left). However, in the game's data, an alternate unused version of Tough Coffee is found (right). https://t.co/pfdnBc9Q22
salvation army, psa
seasonal reminder that the salvation army, as their name and the bell ringer telling me to "enjoy hell" earlier would imply, is first and foremost a conservative, evangelical fundamentalist christian church and missionary program. (and i know there's plenty of marginalized folks who can and have commented here on how "helpful" and "anti-discrimination" they really are)
give your money to real charities or people in need instead of believing the same far-right evangelicals that always vote to fuck over marginalized folks when they say they'll really help people in need this time for realsies.
Helping a new user find the right instance/community
Hey y'all, a new user on lgbtq dot cool is trying to find out if there are active fan fiction/fandom communities on here, which i actually can't really say! Of you know of any, please let me or @sarahkawilley know. In particular, they are interested in Hannigram, Spirk, and Jarchie. Boosts are appreciated for visibility!
interesting how all these people going "we can't just block other people we're uncomfortable with" will block anybody who makes them uncomfortable by suggesting people should consent to the things they see and discuss
also how they're usually people who are perfectly fine with vomiting their disgust all over the place under the banner of "extreme honesty" when, honestly, they should just be screaming "I REFUSE TO DEVELOP EMOTIONALLY! I REFUSE TO DEVELOP EMOTIONALLY!" over and over naked
Mastodon privacy PSA: locked posts and locked accounts (173 words plus image descriptions)
I have seen this catch out more than one person, so here's how it works:
- The "follower-only" on 🔒 posts means *everyone who follows you*, not (per "Friends-only" on Livejournal) everyone *you* follow. Any rando who follows you can see all your private posts going forward.
- If you want to restrict who can see your follower-only posts in a vanilla Mastodon instance, right now the only available tool is restricting who can follow you, period:
+ In the "Edit profile" settings screen, there is a "Lock account" checkbox (see image one). If you tick that, whenever someone tries to follow you, instead of immediately following, they will show up in the "👥 Follow requests" column linked from the "Getting started" column. (You can also get email notifications - see image two.)
+ If you block someone, they will not be allowed to follow you and be removed from your list of followers. You can also soft-block someone - block and immediately unblock - to remove them from your followers without permanently blocking them.
YouTube, screaming, salty language, literal songs.
Some lighthearted stoof for you all.
