I think nu atheism has tricked a lot of "free thinkiners" into treating vacuous faith and hope noise and garbage as a feature of organized religion, when really it is a primary facet of consumer capitalism
youtube removing community captions is so fucked up honestly. it's a massive fuck you to those with hearing issue, language processioning issues like some can have with autism, pretty much all non english speakers or those in the process of learning which media immersion is an amazing way to learn I may add. and there's literally no reason to do it than google doing what they always do, killing off services and features because fuck you
It's kind of frustrating to recognize when people are committing these small inconsequential conversational crimes but also be unable to help yourself from committing them
It's like being able to fluently understand a language like a native speaker but not be able to actually speak it
Haiti: Achieved anti-slavery, anti-colonial revolution.
Cuba: 80% home ownership. 99% literacy. 100% health care.
Kazakhstan: Sent the first dog, man, woman, and Black person into space.
USA, France, U.K.: World’s current and greatest purveyors of colonial violence, famous for hilarious but deadly self-owns.
If people stop filming cops, that's the end. People get that right? That's literally our only legal weapon against them at this point

Crowdfunding my gf’s rent
$355/$600 (rent), $0/$100 (utilities)
My gf, a twoc, is struggling to pay rent. She can’t get a job right now because her id card was stolen, and the state took her benefits away because she missed one phone call. Fixing these issues during a pandemic will take months.
I’m maybe going to get a job, but I won’t get paid for it in time to help her.
I really love her and her becoming homeless again will undo all the life progress she’s made so far. Please boost even if you can’t donate.
Posting my payment info bc she doesn’t want her name out there:
Amazon Workers in Alabama have officially filed with the National Labor Relations Board to hold a unionization vote.
This is huge news because these kinds of things typically only get filed after the union advocates determine that there is overwhelming support in that workplace. There are 1500 staff in this warehouse. Alabama is one of the most anti-union states in the country.
Absolute support for these workers.
I was once a greasy gross goblin just like you but what if I told you all that changed in a matter of minutes? You see now I’m a clean man, what some might even call suave & sophisticated. What’s my secret? I’ll tell you. It’s something you probably already have in your own home. It’s called a shower. That’s right, they’re not *just* industrial sized urinals. It turns out you can clean yourself in them too! And for the low price of just $25 USD I’ll share my shower success secrets with you.
Heya! My name's Bec, I'm ace, I use they/them pronouns, I write code, and I'm delighted to be here!
