the idea that gay people were truly hidden requires a great deal of inventive, and continual, disinformation and reinterpretation of established facts.

the *fact* of gay people being, to some degree, hidden requires decades of success in this endeavor, and is intrinsically unstable

[sacking off work] really sorry, i'm just very upset about prince phillip right now

[stealing a cheesecake from tesco] really sorry, very upset. prince phillip's dead you know

[driving bulldozer into a police station] really sorry, have you seen the news though?

Honestly, who cares that Prince Philip died. Most folks assumed he was a lich anyways. And it's not like he's the Queen, the one people ACTUALLY care about...

We’re doing Controversial leftist takes?

There will always be divided, factional politics of groups with conflicting interests and desires. You can never get rid of politics. Not with markets. Not with neutral expertise. And not just by changing the class character of power or the nature of the state either.

The goal should be a pluralistic society of worker associations and independent political entities. I don’t like one big party or even “one big union.” We’ll always be struggling with each other and the structure needs to accommodate that.

> The Hebrew word in the Torah in the verse regarding parents, kavod, does not really mean honor, which is a poor English translation. In another talmudic statement, this same word is used to say that human dignity is extremely important. Therefore, the true meaning of the word kavod is dignity. Thus, the is to dignify one’s father and mother, to keep their dignity.

It's a commandment to look after your parents when they're old.

IM still flabbergasted that I have to wait a certain amount of time after having same sex relations, before giving blood and heterosexuals dont, merely cause. Like, I wear protection, am on PrEP, and get tested every three months, yet I'm not legally allowed to if I've had some fun within X months, while fucking Derek who hasn't stepped in a sex health clinic ever can just do it

stock market guy: you know on options, im bullish, but derivatives? definitely bearish

me: dont know what that means. aren't those sex things. are you one of those sex guys

so this exists now, also: raddle.me/f/nudism

I am not sure if it has a really good reason to yet, or not - but we won't really know for a month or five anyway, I'd guess?

Me and the lover talking about Arthur Christmas:

"Bryony is a lesbian, Arthur is bi, and Steve is in the closet."

“But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work. We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.”

Long operating systems shitpost 

Linux is built collaboratively by developers and systems administrators. If you're a developer or systems administrator, Linux is likely well suited to what you need.

Microsoft is an office software and video game company. If you mainly need to run office software and/or play video games, Windows will probably do what you need it to do.

Apple is a luxury consumer electronics manufacturer. If you mostly want a smooth consumer experience with your device, OS X or iOS might be the right choice.

never make the mistake in believing in the individual or collective rationality of humankind. you cannot tell me that any feature of our utterly convoluted society is in any way rational. We exist, constantly poised to annihilate all human life from this planet for political reasons, and that's just everyday common sense to most people. Mundane, or even a nessesary evil, to most. Science, ironically, tells us that we are not at all rational or logical creatures.

queer culture, genuinely, is the understanding that culture is fabricated on such a personal level and is not inherently tied to society as an outstanding individual and, thus, is the acceptance that queer culture can be a thousand different things to a thousand different queer peple who are queer in a thousand different ways, and not needing to police that incarnation of culture, but understanding the underlying queer ethos beneath it without always needing to articulate it explicitly
