I hate fascists, red and brown, and have a passion for history; especially libertarian history. Probably going to post in /f/history if I ever do get to writing.

Hello, here are four unrelated facts about me:

I like tomatoes. I don't get enough exercise. At least once a day I think "fuck being alive". I'm poly.

We have three out of four in common. I'm interested in how it might work to date someone who was poly but I guess I have to own up to the fact that I'm a serial monogamist in fact but not in theory of idealistic utopia.

I would have enjoyed coparenting at least some of my children with their biological fathers if that had been in at least those particular children's best interest and not detrimental to the best interests of my other children.

That makes me a heterosexual cisgendered female, although my preferred pronouns are they/them/their and I am not overly interested in celebrity culture, fashion, makeup, etc.

I'm nonbinary but not aromantic. I just don't like sex is all.

Did you mean s/nonbinary/asexual?

I'm not sure, that's the problem.

I know I'm not poly but I have a crush on someone who told me they are and I'm curious whether it could actually work out in real fake internet crush relationship time.

I have girl crushes all the time and never stress out about whether it "works out" to have someone think your work is cool and your face is cute and deliberately read your posts on tech forums but that's a girl thing and has nothing to do with admitting that you still kinda want a boyfriend:

Does loving Liz Phair's lyrics and fantasizing about performing "Flower" in public count as "sex positive" or am I just weird and disgusting?

I meant like specifically in that line, did you mean to write "I'm asexual but not aromantic"?

noordinaryspider wrote (edited )

Yea, specifically that is what I meant to type, I'm just not sure what it means yet or if I just insulted Tequila Wolf for liking sex and don't know it yet.

I've done worse dumb things on Raddle and been forgiven.

Switching from English doesn't help. I have problems with language in general, not just English in particular and majoring in English didn't help even though it was fun and I love British literature.

What asexuality means? It's an orientation the same as {bi/homo/hetero}sexuality. I obviously can't speak for Tequila_Wolf but having your own preferences shouldn't be insulting to anyone.

Thank you. That's what I thought it meant. I'm not used to being allowed to choose my own preferences yet.

My favourite colour is purple. My mother thinks it should be blue because she likes the way blue looks on me better than she likes the way purple looks on me. My mother is 80+ years old and lives in a luxury retirement home because she doesn't want to live with me or leave her inheritance to me.

That is not something I am ashamed to say on Raddle, but it's weird as fuck and oddly liberating to publicly state those facts on the internet as well. :) :) :) :)

Hi, i,m new here so to speak , don't really like the computer much but , seeing people's politics-artisticulated I feel like they're kindred spirits of a likeness that can be rare. written words and drawings have been so influential , being equipped with thestory as offered by so many of us, I'd like to reciprocate by contributing mines -gratis. But i,m typing on a phone right now so maybe tomorrow or next saturday.

I punched a Nazi on fridY. Right in the face! Then I cried. And picked about 25 lbs. Of Hazelnuts before being verbally/emotionally attacked by another even more fashy nazi to whom I responded with a confident sarcasm and non-violente. I got a new truck. A '90 Toyota 4 cylinder so spent yesterday mashin up in the mountains and just sitting by the river. Thanks , team. We are a force!

Welcome, KETCHUP.

I'm not crazy about computers either, but I do remember the days before the internet when people had post office boxes and paper and ink pen pals and mimeographed radical newsletters delivered in plain brown wrappers--and oh yes, subconscious, KETCHUP desreves to know that i remember records too which is what we had before those newfangled cassette tapes that we had before those newfangled CDs that we had before this newfangled Pirate Bay to download our music from and oh, being fiftyfranklymydearidon'tgiveadamn is so much fun!

If you ever want a Librebooted X60T with free as in freedom software pre-installed mailed to your PO box, that could probably be arranged.

I love your writing style. I am X-treme downwardly mobile so I "grew up in the publishing industry" in the 1970s and my late brother was well loved in the zine-o-sphere but not into writing for money.

We are a force, that we are. I'm about as unlikely an anarchist as you'd never expect to meet, online or off.

But I digress.

I like mofongo, alcapurria, arepas, tembleque, and mavi.

Thanks, I like you too. ;-)

noordinaryspider wrote

Is it okay to just randomly walk up to people you like and say "I like you." here too?

I already did it.

My favourite thing about my afk friend's wedding was her extended-family-by-choice's family culture thing about it being socially acceptable to do that.

My friend is weird but that's why she is my friend.

Ha ha ha, it's a play on my username. Mofongo is a dish.

Funny, I tried it for the first time ever less than two weeks ago. It was so-so, but I think that's just because I'm unfamiliar with it.

And pleased to meet you.

mofongo wrote

It's a simple dish but very hard to do good. Many commercials places use tricks to do the tedious parts faster, but it removes of the overall taste. Also, the meat. Chicken is awful for a mofongo, a pork chicharron is better, but very greasy. A meatless version is also good, but the cooker must know the right amount of spices to make it taste like the real thing.

My family usually goes to places that sell mofongo ( it's a typical dish here), and out of 20 places we've been only 2 are actually good.

edmund_the_destroyer wrote

Interesting. The place I went to said it was just a mashed, fried, mashed, and fried again plantain dish with spices. It didn't taste bad, but it wasn't great either.

It is, but we do those steps only once. Maybe add some meat. Cassava mofongo is also very good, easier to make delicious. But will make you sleepy if you're not used to eat cassava.

The person that sold it to me said it's an unusually heavy food and small portions go a long way. She said most new customers complain when they see the size of the platter and then complain how stuffed they are when they finish.

I hate proprietary tech, fascists & religion. BTW I use Arch GNU/Linux, jk.

Why jk? I use Ubuntu Linux flavors. (Edit: that was just a question, not a condemnation or a lead up to "you should ...." )

parent, work in tech, raised Catholic and Republican, became an atheist, became a market libertarian, became a Democrat, became a socialist for lack of finding anything better, flirting with anarcho-communism (edit: or maybe parecon).

Aside from focusing on free-as-in-freedom software over proprietary technology I'm not sure how to be an activist for what I believe.

My username is a play on "Conan the Destroyer". I envision Edmund as Conan's lesser known cousin, a cabbage farmer.
