Fuck a world of forced specialization. You can be a farmer AND a philosopher. You can be a carpenter and a portraitist. You can be a lawyer and an electrician. You can be a mycologist and a flautist, a bookbinder and a skateboarder, a chemist and a stripper, an upholsterer and an Aramaic scholar, a gymnast and a fisherman. You can be so many things, any combination of things that you love or like or are interested in or want to try. Idgaf! If you only want to do one thing? That's fucking awesome and good too!

But I refuse to accept a world where a farmer must be just a farmer, a carpenter just a carpenter. Labors of body, mind, and spirit can all fit together, no matter what capitalism says.

the office, just talking about a show that's been finished for 6 years now, 7.02

does somebody know of any good writings on the redefinition/expansion/decolonization of the concept of 'motherhood' and 'family' done by trans women and chosen families in general?

Sometimes i’m not surprised, but uhh hey what the fuck

🤢 girl.... not to tell you how to live your life but you could do better

momstagram, gun mention, stalking 

instagram moms sell weird stuff sometimes but by far the weirdest is literal drug tests to use on their and their followers' kids when they get to "that age"

i'm four seasons in and i now love the office, don't get me wrong, but a lot of the early season jokes were literally "you understood that was racist right? how uncouth of that man!"

watching the office, in earnest, for the first time has really made me understand how much cringe comedy is actually just "racist jokes are funny not because of the racism, but because we understand racist jokes to be just social transgressions and not an attempt to dehumanize a group of people"

on one hand: being outspoken about breastfeeding in public and normalizing and desexualizing the whole deal is a really good and needed thing

on the other: please don't call yourself a lactivist

the left needs to "influence" the masses to study, organize to struggle, to conceptualize alternative ways of living together and in harmony with the earth; rethink notions of necessity, consumption, and access

:heart_bi: scarla :heart_ace: boosted

"influencers" are merely people who instead of being contractually endorsed by brands (see 80s and 90s advertising) assume the brunt of the financial risk in the severely faint hopes of becoming contracted influencers and brand representatives

I'm inclined to believe the opposite of "influencer culture" is communist, socialist, or anarchist political education

Block reccomendation

1. The maintenance for a machete begins and ends with “something to scrape it on”

2. They don’t need bullets

3. You can use them for stuff besides trying to kill people

4. They aren’t a theft target by themselves like guns are

5. Someone threatening me for my food and water with a gun is probably not actually prepared to shoot me. It’s just a dangerous, expensive bluff.

6. If they are prepared to shoot me, I was already fucked. 🤷‍♀️

7. A machete is like $12
