Long (Re)-Introduction post (about 3 regular toots) <3 Show more
I generally post about #personal stuff, #mood, #MentalHealth, #musings on all kinds of things, mostly from something resembling a very much #amateur #philosophical - #psychological angle. I... guess. Often scatterbrained, probably naïve.
In other words: I brood/ruminate a lot (not the chicken/cow activity) to then bother y'all with the outcome. There's also moping.
Though usually I just boost a lot of things I find uplifting/interesting/important.
#Cats are all three of those!
Posts I boost tend to revolve around #gender, #feminism, #racism, #neurodivergence (mostly #autism).
But also #art, #NaturePhotography, jokes/sh*tposts.
I might boost political things without a CW occasionally as well as not realise that my own content might need a warning for politic-adjacent thematics despite I'm doing my best to use the ContentWarning-feature responsibly and descriptively.
Mostly however, I'm reaching out or... am trying to.
At the same time I'm unapologetically weird, also probably jumping to conclusions and giving unsolicited advice.
Constructive feedback on my posting behaviour, advice, hugs and follow requests are generally welcome.
It is extremely liberating to not pretend that you know things you don't. It also opens you up to a lot more chances to learn shit. It rules

@kara_dreamer Actually the details of who can excuse everything with a paltry apology are fascinating. The patriarch and matriarch of any family can to someone who's not. Parents can to a kid. Aunt and uncles only can if they're in line to be the patriarch or matriarch or favored by them.
And then, yeah, anyone not white, and anyone who has not yet fallen in line with the culture are not allowed to. I mean, I repeat myself: not white = out of line with the culture.
From my first gaming adventures with Pokemon and Zelda to discovering music with LSDJ, I never lived so much adventures with another videogame console in my life.
Happy 30th birthday to the Nintendo's GameBoy !

"For such a smart person you can be really dumb"
"I don't manipulaty anyone or anything. How do you even think of such nonsense?"
In response I've been explaining in detail how his words, especially with the one "questioning my intelligence" (Funnily enough I taught him it's a myth) are indeed manipulative and can be seen as "psychological warfare".
Whay I expect back: "Would you -really- accuse me of that? I thought you know me better!"

"Only because we had a little fight yesterday?"
(After I talked about problems we'be been having for a year now)
"Pity, but if you think that way it can't be helped. Guess I should leave for now."
(Ok this... is highly manipulative I think, the subtext basically saying that my way of thinking is "at fault" and he'll "wait it out until I come to my senses".)
Something being 'natural' might make fixing it more difficult, but it is not an excuse not to fix it. If inequity & injustice are 'natural' -- i.e., happen without conspiracy -- that just makes it *more* important to fight them.
Naming animals after pieces of clothing because most people's minds will probably make that connection right away...
It's still weird af
saying "leaving samples in this butt like it's ancestry dot com" too loud in a health food shop is somehow less embarrassing than saying "haha hey we could like, kiss, like as a joke" to my dad's best friend's son when we were 15

"I live on the border of two states with extremely different minimum wage laws. I worked for a company that moved over the border from the state with the higher (though still not sufficient) minimum wage to the other state. We were able to keep our jobs but we had to take a pay cut. Meanwhile, the boss bought a new house in California and kept her house here as well.
During the process of the move, I happened to find a Post-It note with the admin credentials to the payroll system. Every week for the few months I stayed on after the move, I gave myself and my co-workers a few extra hours of pay to make up for the money they were trying to save.
Nothing happened to me. And it felt like a good deed."
