Can't stop thinking about when @wgahnagl was like "no one can sing Caramelldansen because no one knows Swedish" and @Sasukecoochieha responded by reciting the chorus from memory

Teetering maddeningly on the precipice of white girl arts and crafts and tech weirdo aesthetic setup

in a gender seminar. the lecturer talks about her commitment to feminist pedagogy and the importance of space in the construction of hierarchy so she suggests that we shift the tables around. and after doing that it dawns on me that the tables ended up in the shape of a cock and balls

I'm under no illusion
As to what I meant to you
But you made an impression
And sometimes I still feel the bruise
Sometimes I still feel the bruise

Hi, it's the Mountain Goats
It's the seventeenth of December
At 9:34 in the morning
And this is called "No, I Can't"

Long black night, morning frost
I'm still here, but all is lost

Trans people starting HRT is the same as Rock Lee dropping his training weights.

For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”

We need more media platforms like that.

Burning an American flag is hard because if you want a good, big, flammable one you need to go out and buy an expensive American flag.

no one saying #deathtoamerica is saying death to American people

they're saying death to the imperialist American government, death to oppression and capitalism and colonialism, death to the CIA and the US military. the things that America has always symbolized to the people it has crushed under its heel in pursuit of lucre and power.

Being able to say 'yeah and?' When your opponent is trying to deligitmize you unfairly is such a power move. It also shows that your movement is at least mostly honest about its goals. If even the warped version of the goals your opponent spits back at you seem reasonable, that's a great sign. It makes you seem reasonable.

If Death to America doesn't literally mean "kill every American" perhaps Troops Are Bad doesn't literally mean "every troop is irredeemable."

Perhaps people are rightfully angry and using hyperbole to attack a pervasive and destructive superstructure.

No.

No, that couldn't be it.
