There are few things I enjoy as much as watching everything fall apart at work. This week was wonderful, absolutely nothing got done, everything that could break down, did. On top of that, just started my vacation for the next ~ 2 weeks. Feeling good.

I've also created a sense of enjoyment for corporate decisions that I know will lead to bureaucracy and reduced efficiency. I love it when nobody does anything except go to meetings about why nothing gets done.

Anyone ever get put in a position of having to defend someone you can't stand and believe to be a complete asshole because the alternative is the exact shit you've been talking about to a space? I had to go to bat for one of the most toxic and vicious sisters I've ever met because she pissed off the wrong t-bro and he threw a tantrum even though she had already been kicked out until we basically burned her in effigy. Like, I don't even like this woman, but fucking count on trans men to reinforce transmisogyny and then cower behind "b-b-but I'm not cis tho".

My doctors' office fucked me out of my meds over a blood test I can't get because I'm not in that state anymore and don't need because I'm not on spiro anymore, L is sharing hers until I get an appointment with Planned Parenthood or something. Feels like my tits are finally evening out at least. I feel like I've been stuck in puberty for like, eight years now and that's probably because I am.

Feeling increasingly paranoid about living in a metro, wish we could move already and squat some land or something, or at least ditch this country and put it behind us for good. Doubt it'd be much better anywhere else but at least if we went to Eireann or something we'd just have to deal with the regular degular homophobia and misogyny instead of having it constantly enshrined into law in an open attempt to starve us out. Plus there'd be castles and I'd be able to like, actually go outside in the summer.

I'm glad you are reaching some bodily transition goals :) I imagine that feels pretty nice

I'm sorry your doctor and the man you argued with have been causing you stress. That's a really unfair situation on both counts. I hope you find a way to get the blood test you need, and that this guy apologizes for his words/behavior.

I'm with you, I'm about at the point where I just wish I could leave and go squat somewhere. My problem is that I have no one to run away with...a damn shame, if you ask me.

dude at work is trying to bait me into talking about my politics. he’s some sort of leftist so it’s not even antagonistic hostile really, i just don’t need some guy with a big ass mouth knowing anything about me. sucks though when he says he thinks i’m a marxist or calls me a communist and i can’t say shit.

other than that i think i got my hair cut too short and can’t decide on which of my unread books to start

I really need to take that into consideration when people want to talk to me about politics. Though, honestly, if I get anywhere near close to my actual politics, people laugh and think I'm making a joke. But it's not something I think of enough. It's good to see it said, so thanks.

Can we all just start an exarcheia/christania in our respective cities? They can serve as not only revolutionary epicenters but also mutual aid hubs for those outside the direct community. And confederate them for worldwide coordinated actions. Or not...

I've been trying, it's not easy. Most of the people I know who are good at this stuff still have intense histories of dealing with police etc in previous evictions so it's hard for them to engage.

Gotta meet people where they're at and build from there, I think.

Christiania is corrupt as fuck... reactionary place, really.

I visited once, there was a lot of broken glass and trash, people walking like they were in another dimension (at least they seem to have fun), a vegan restaurant that I unfortunately didn't stop by and some tourists.

Doesn't help that the police seem to go there once in a while to beat people up.

NOISEBOB wrote (edited )

there is a conspiracy theory that the state of denmark let the hippies squat the place, so they wouldn't revolt like the students and hippies of france did in '68... (they squatted it in '71)

i'm tempted to believe it...

ziq wrote

Was it always like that or just recently since it turned into an open-air weed market?

6

NOISEBOB wrote

It's partially because of the drug market ruled by gangs, but also the way they deal with people wanting to move in there (it is basically not possible unless you know the right people - consequence of that is that the average age of people living there is higher than outside)... it's just a place for tourists and people who like to smoke weed.

NOISEBOB wrote

come to think of it, i may be wrong on the average age being higher than outside (as Christinia doesn't have nursing homes for the elderly), but they definitely have a strange lack of non-native young people living there.

I imagine it is, I was just reaching for a second example off the top of my head. Most of what I have read about it was more historical regarding its beginnings and within its first 10 years. Sucks to hear though.

If by that you mean an anarchist neighbourhood in every city, that would be wonderful. Whole towns or even valleys, though, in the case of a dispersed rural community, could be even better, too, though they might attract more attention from the state, so they would need to be much more revolutionary than they might be otherwise, considering the pressure.

When lefties say ‘solidarity with...’ that’s as fucking useless as righties saying ‘thoughts and prayers’.

There's a leftcom comic "Great Moments in Leftism" pointed this out. Solidarity

I checked out the rest of that comic... its perhaps the most armchair thing I've ever seen. I thought armchair leftcoms was just a joke.

Not sure what everyone’s thoughts are on the Russia investigation and all that, but I thought I’d share anyway.

Roger Stone—fascist POS— been officially been indicted with obstruction of justice, witness tampering and lying to congress. The fun part though: the indictment cites Alex Jones as an unindicted coconspirator and Stone’s go-between for Wikileaks.

Disregarding the unsettling amount of power Capital and The State have in the whole Russia investigation, the ethics of permanently empowering FBI, “treason” being nationalist make believe, yadda yadda yadda —all valid concerns— the fact that two fascist assholes may spend some time in federal prison makes me feel sooooooooooo fucking good.

the whole thing just feels like liberals trying to save democracy and some ideal of the USA that’s never existed. so while it’s fun to see assholes occasionally sweat it out, day-to-day i can’t care.

Any real chance Alex Jones gets prison time?

We checked out a school for my daughter last night that claimed to be "unschooling" and "self-directed learning", things I am pretty down with. It was a bougie, authoritarian shit-show. So many fucking red flags went off and after we left my husband said "sometimes, I forget where we live." Fuck, I hate the Silicon Valley. Now we have to figure out how to either homeschool our child or how to manage harm-reduction and anxiety in the school system.

Also, I've been making switchel all week. So thankful to GaldraChevaliere for mentioning it in another thread. It's really awesome.

alex_ wrote

yeah i looked up schools like that in my area out of curiosity once, all bougie and super expensive. good luck with that.

gonna have to try switchel

1

bloodrose wrote

Yeah, that was my experience with that type of school. The prices on this one were actually reasonable because they're just starting out...oh, and because they don't actually do self-directed learning. They just saw a youtube video one time and thinks it sounds cool. sigh It's like a rich lady's pet project.

Tequila_Wolf wrote

Good luck with the schooling! That all seems like a lot to figure out.

Never heard of switchel. It tastes good?

2

bloodrose wrote

Yeah and the daughter appears to be having some anxiety about school and it just seems so unreasonable for a four year old to have anxiety.

I liked the switchel. It was like a flat ginger ale that wasn't sweet. Which sounds kinda not good but my hubs is having issues with acid reflux so he can't do carbonation or any really acidic drink (something about raw ACV makes it not hurt like an acid in the stomach), so it was a real help to get him a beverage he liked that wasn't too acidic.

I’m done with politics, current events and all the capitalism/socialism/anarchism garbage. Also closed my FB, twitter and 12 year reddit account recently. It feels good. Now my phone is a phone again, and sometimes a camera.

lol you made an account on raddle a day ago to say you're done with politics? You can't really avoid politics around here.
