uspol, socialism 

Instilling class consciousness into Americans, especially white Americans, will always be an uphill battle because the myth of the self-made man is suffused into the very fabric of our national identity.

Americans are pathologically individualist despite also being pathologically tribal. It's why something as simple as wearing a mask to protect others has been so thoroughly politicized.

class consciousness 

I am always impressed by how much class consciousness capitalists have. When Noncompete relates his short experience as a capital owner, he describes how other capitalists would treat him differently, as "one of us", despite lack of actual wealth or power. as long as you're mooching profits from workers, we're on the same side.

the day when the working class get as aware and united as the owners already are, there will be no more owners.

asking for money for my gf, homelessness, :boost_ok: 

Retoot to link in with the #TransCrowdFund hashtag!!!!!

:boost_ok: :boost_ok: :boost_ok:

Hey so

My one girlfriend is a young trans girl living in NC. She is facing homelessness in like two weeks-ish, if not sooner. She doesn't have any options for an income because of her depression, there are no options for housing that either of us can find. Her abusive parents are actively violent and hunting her down and the pharmacy just refused to refill her estrogen. She's running out of options and neither of us know what to do.

If you could donate or reboost it would mean so fucking much to us. Even just a little bit, whatever you can manage.

Reminder that FedEx "SmartPost" and UPS "Mail Innovations" are private companies using the ubiquitous delivery of the United States Post Office for handling their last-mile deliveries.

In other words, it's not cost-effective enough for them to send a truck to deliver your package so their "Smart" and "Innovative" way of handling this is to make it the post office's problem.

Whenever someone says that the Post Office isn't efficient please remind them of these "Smart" "Innovations"

DS9, romance, and ableism 

I don't understand the Kira/Odo hate. Their relationship is cute and respectful and heartfelt and earnest and the only reason I can think of for people not liking it is because Odo is heavily autistic coded and that's just ableist.

Every one of Bashir's "romances" is a hundred times creepier. Jadzia and Worf's relationship was terrible. Quark creeping on Ezri is uncomfortable. Other than Sisko and Kassidy, Kira and Odo have the best relationship on the show.

Stardate wank 

For the TNG era, there are three data points that tie Gregorian calendrical dates to the Stardate -- TNG: The Neutral Zone (41986), Data's Day (44390), and VOY: Homestead (54868). Taken in their totality, they clearly establish that Stardate 41000 canonically corresponds to summer 2363.

If you assume Encounter at Farpoint's airdate (28 September 1987) matches its stardate (41153), then Stardate: New Year is July 15.

Cute that Peanut Hamper and Tendi have the same personality and are voiced by the same VA.

O..oh dear, they're Beyonding the Cerritos.

Ahh goddammit it's the Pakleds, Star Trek's paean to fat-phobia.

Someone forgot to program Peanut Hamper with the Three Laws.

Ooooh ouch having an implant ripped out has gotta hurt

Aww an exocomp officer. What a fascinating concept.

LDS is the first series to acknowledge every single week that they aren't the only Star Trek show.

I mean. That there are other ships in Starfleet. Going all the way back to the Those Old Scientists era.

UGH STARFLEET TRUTHERS I'M GOING TO BE PHYSICALLY ILL I HATE IT

Aaaand Caitians have coital hooks. Because of course they do.

Every single Starfleet officer is a monsterfucker. They obvs test for it at the Academy.

Ahaha a screencap from TAS, marvelous

This show is so self-aware it might actually be bad after all. "The TOS era?" Come the fuck on.

Aaaahh I'm kidding, I love self-referential fiction.

I always wondered if combadges opened a channel upon an incoming request. Looks like they do indeed, at least when it's funny.

Also: ruh ruh, secret's out

Uhhhh that ... was abrupt. Rip f Solvang.

Also, don't go to warp while tied to something. Should be in the manual somewhere.

I'm homeless with 0 income.

The next payment for my storage (32€ every 4 weeks), which holds the last few valuables that still haven't been taken from me, will bounce and I might lose the last bit of what I have.

Everything I make, I release for free as a matter of principle, so if you have spare cash it'd be really nice if you could help out.

I can receive money via bank transfer (DM for IBAN) or get recurring donations via patreon:

Today I learned that the origin of S-tier is in Japanese kids needing something higher than an A to shoot for.

These small young humans are *literally* the future. Spending time on them is work not even just for them but for future generations.

fucking wierd that hate groups like the daughters of the confederacy get to build these massive marble buildings and erect confederate statues and exist as a legitimate organization in the US while every movement for black liberation has been absolutely ruthlessly and openly crushed by the full weight of the federal government from its very infancy oh wait
