Hopefully we can get the word out to more people that the sub moved here. Really should have migrated after quarantine.

Kind of makes me want to give up on everything to be honest. I mean if we can’t get even get enough people to vote for a socdem how would we possibly get enough people to be willing to fight and die for a socialist revolution? It’s hard to see any realistic path forward.

When porn is posted online, there’s little way to tell if it’s actually consensual. There are frequent cases of porn getting pulled because it turns out one of the people in it is underaged. There are many stories of professional porn performers being forced or coerced into performing. You also can’t tell if the people appearing in porn may be too drunk or high to consent, especially if it’s just a still photo. There’s also the case of revenge porn being posted non-consensually.

Basically, how would we verify that the porn posted here contained only of-age people who are genuinely consenting? I don’t think Raddle is capable of ensuring that.

I’m very patriotic towards Cascadia, unfortunately we haven’t yet seceded so the country of Cascadia doesn’t exist quite yet.

Unpaid work done for the benefit of people you don’t personally know, maybe? If you go over and help your sister clean her house and don’t expect payment, most people wouldn’t consider that volunteer work either.

I don’t like their government. I don’t agree with dictatorships at all, and they’re obviously not actually socialist or communist.

I do support their right to have nuclear weapons though. It’s hypocritical how the US doesn’t want any other country to have “weapons of mass destruction” yet somehow it’s fine for us to have them. Since the US obviously won’t get rid of their nuclear weapons, it’s probably good for as many other countries as possible to have them because then that keeps us in a stalemate where neither country is willing to attack the other. So it seems like other countries having nuclear weapons makes it less likely we’ll start another pointless war with that country.

Maybe not super relevant, but kind of weird that the article uses “Patti Mayonaise” as a synonym for “white woman” when Patti Mayonaise (the character) isn’t white. The guy who originally drew her said he made her skin dark to “suggest ethnicity” (kind of offensive way to put it but whatever) and one of the writers on the show who was herself Puerto Rican said Patti is Puerto Rican.

I haven’t watched daytime TV in many years- currently I don’t even have the ability to, since I just use streaming services and can’t get network channels- but the last time I watched daytime TV in the US it was pretty much exactly what you describe. Plus soap operas.

Well I just keep my apartment clean as a matter of course. I don’t think it’s really considered a “goal.” Like, if someone asked me what my goals are and I said having a clean apartment, that would make it sound like my apartment is currently dirty and my goal is to get it clean. Keeping it clean consistently is just a standard of living, something I normally do, not a goal.
