It's not a sentence because you didn't capitalize the "s", but what moved me to tears about this phrase or collection of words is the pure, unbridled optimism and your ability to conceptualize a world where this technology is not used against us by powers that we do not have the strength to overcome.

There is context that I don't want to share publicly, the way I did when I was so shocked and surprised that ANY "he" who likes "she"s could understand that chick flick, but your mother raised you right.

You give me hope. I may completely disagree with you about absolutely everything and we may very well butt heads on debate threads and you may walk away hating me and thinking I'm mean or ignorant, but that's got nothing to do with what I'm trying to say now, which is nothing more or less than a stupid fan letter from a complete stranger about a stupid post on an internet forum.

Take care and see you around da interwebz.

Just delete this if you want then. I thought it was good, anyway, and a nice reminder of why we are here and what not-back-to-school used to be back in the dark ages when dinosaurs roamed the earth and the calender said "2017".

I'm on sabbatical. There's more stuff in pedagogies. Tequila_Wolf even managed to dig up a "Thank you for homeschooling me, mom, but I could NEVER do that!" article for Black parents who want to get all excited about volunteering at their kids' public schools so yea, whatevs, maybe there's some sort of a Raddle 4 Seniors where we can play Bingo or something.

Whatevs.

Congratulations on the kittens! You have been missed.

Next Year's 30 year old actually gave me back "Miss Perfect" if you want me to pass her along. She's a used for-parts-or-repair 32 bit laptop/tablet convertible who was born in 2006 and came here with her three comrades a couple of years ago.

She went by "Ms." when she was with dd. She's not picky, she's just not married. I can libreboot her for you, which would make her safer but then she wouldn't have sound or be able to run proprietary software in an emergency so it's your choice and this belongs on a flipping PM!!!!

Your mom is obviously awesome, though, because people like you don't just show up out of thin air.

I'm an idiot, but how do they get away with using the same name as https://notabug.org/tos and do we need to circle the wagons around Leah or anything?

I know she's used that git repository for awhile, long before Git Hub got bought by that criminal bates or crates or hates whatever that thug claims to be named on microshit advertisements.

And I don't have any problem with how ziq is running Raddle so I'm not going to get bored and go away.

The metaphor sucks. It feels so condescending to keep saying why it works so well while simultaneously laughing at how bad it sucks.

Backstory is that I was momming ziq earlier on Matrix right after telling them I had to take a sabbatical or I was going to mom them.

Exactly. Just like parenting. And it's a sucky metaphor because it's painful for both of us right now but also a very apt one and probably healthy for the community for us to just deal and publicly pm, but I'm just not sure my language skills are up for it.

There's a lot more to anarchist parenting than cute little black onesies and finding a lonely little old lady to work 24/7/365 for free.

Sorry. My baby wants a candy bar too. My baby's candy bar costs 140GBP an hour, my self respect, and hopefully not my own mind and #OccupyBaby's teens or (perhaps, since some foster homes are good and #OccupyBaby looks like Antwon Rose with waist length cornrows) his life.

The more experienced anarchist on Raddle who is also a less experienced parent has taught me to just shrug, remind you never to get between a mother bear and her cubs, and I'll match your "vagina is not a clown car" by raising you a "that may be true, but your clown car is not a vagina either so I'm not gonna hump it."

Bingo.

I hope some nonexistant kid didn't have to give up his dad for you to be able to understand that but this is my point.

I'm not kissing up to ziq, I'm acknowledging his greater investment in this community than my own. His knowledge of anarchism is far greater than my own but it came at the cost of other things he could have been doing instead.

If my own perfect little angel wants to show ziq his flutterbye collection and talk about My Little Pony, he could KILL ziq jr.

If ziq has a problem with the way I'm raising my kid I don't really care unless it affects my kid's safety or ziq's safety.

If ziq has a problem with how I'm talking to new Raddlers, I'm going to shush the little guy or let him play another round of Hedge Wars instead of getting his multiplication memorizing workbook page done on time because I want to hear how I'm fucking up and learn how to do better RIGHT NOW instead of getting banned.

But I could still post on Reddit Mommywebz boards under a different username until the anti-natural childbirth and anti-breastfeeding and anti-homeschoolers recognize me AGAIN by some stupid jokes and mixed metaphors that aren't even all that funny and I'm off to the races again. Here we go round the mulberry bush gathering nuts in May.

I'm sorry, but there is in the United States. Child Protective Services is beyond the scope of Raddle and completely inappropriate to discuss here in the context of a metaphor but I need to correct some potentially life-destroying misinformation.

Anyone can report a United Statesian parent for child abuse/neglect by calling an anonymous tip line and can and is done for the same reasons all the downvotes and "ziq iz a bad despot" posts keep appearing here but with afk consequences that can cost more than money.

I tried to do this:

[quote]One more thing I was thinking about, since it's first of all about parenting. If your kid has a tantrum, for wanting a toy or whatever, wouldn't that be enforcing an authority over them to get them out of the situation to be able to go home?[quote]

with my 29 year old but she just wasn't making any sense. She kept wanting me to apologize for things that weren't reasonable and saying that I ruined her life when we had to move "for Colfax reasons".

I would love to take her away into the woods and find out what the bleep she's on and what monster is doing what to my baby, but she's a grown woman and kidnapping is a felony, capiche?

So I can hate my kid or buy a shrink. I bought a shrink. I'm not going to tell you her name but I am going to tell my kid's shrink my shrink's name so they can talk shrink stuff.

To make a short story long, I hired a licensed psychologist for myself for the EXACT SAME REASON you bought your kid that candy bar in the checkout line.

No worries. I just don't do well with language is all and English is the best I can do right now.

I just meant that I admire you and have trouble not wanting to "parent" you because of life stuff.

But in the way you described it here, not a Mommywebz Babycenter Michelle Duggar sort of way.

It's been a rough few weeks and I need to spend more time on self-care but I love this place and don't want you to do anything different at all except pace yourself and smack my cub around if he shows up before he's 16. I don't think he can but I'm back to boring old Vanilla Debian for humility's sake anyway.

XY friend of mine who isn't more than a year or two younger than me is going to be a new daddy again so what do I know about XY bodies, lol.

Thank you, ziq, and I can honestly say that I have "Been there done that bought the T-shirt" because the one I got when #OccupyBaby and I went camping with the most mainstream HS group you'd ever want to find says "Educational Anarchy" on it.

I bought it in 2011, #OccupyBaby is male, his name doesn't start with a "J", and even if it did, it would be pronounced like "Hey (Dr.) Seuss!!!!!" but this time last year I had a community and now I have to explain that I'm not Michelle Duggar but I am me so something's changed very radically very quickly.

I don't think it's a "generation gap" either.

I don't want a "job" in the childcare industry and I won't hoam skull your kid to Harvard for less than you pay the people who scrub your toilets and have sex with your husbands even if you try to throw a goat in to sweeten the deal, I'm just trying to get you to see what's right in front of you.

Point taken wrt comments on Matrix, ziq, I'll be good.

Same here, it just gets more complicated because my daughter is 30 1/2 and she has all these little brothers and sisters with all these problems and some of them would die without their stuff.

Stuff as in insulin pumps and bee sting kits and an OB GYN for the daughter with the bleeding disorder unless granny midwives can do tubal ligations on women with bleeding disorders since that's what she really wants, not stuff as in heat/electricity/plumbing.

Well, the pseudo-grandbabies would get taken away from Gentlest Daughter's stepsister if they didn't have heat and electricity a plumbing and lawyers, guns, and money.....

So yea. Just a dumb breeder here. Anyone wanna buy a used life?

I'm new. Been flooding the boards a bit and stealing an education while I can, but back-to-school corporate capitalism spend money holiday is making me want to run around the internet saying "Have a nice day, Turkey!"

That would not be setting a good example for da childernz.

I'll be back when I'm ready to act like an uncivilized human being. No worries. I'm not angry at anyone here, I'm just angry.

Thank you. That was probably the least hurtful anti-homeschooling article I have read this back-to-anti-homeschooling season. :)

If anybody else is interested in collecting original source materials for research on or memorabilia of the ill-fated grassroots homeschooling movement of the late 20th and early 21st centuries, there's a real gem on Abe Books right now that needs good home:

https://www.abebooks.com/servlet/BookDetailsPL?bi=6287100127&cm_sp=det--bsk--bdp

1996 edition of Grace Llewellyn's Freedom Challenge if that means anything to any Robin Hoods and/or Librarians who might be reading this.

Random strangers on the internet call it "suicidal ideation" and threaten to send the cops over to beat me up and steal my kids so I have to be a believable enough cyber psycho terra wrist that they go away just in case I really DO fly more of my airplanes into more of their World Trade Centers.

Not the greatest coping strategy in the world, but da childernz are safe anyway.

If they're your childernz and not mine, get them the fuck off my lawn.

Yea, that's what the world looks like to me.

My eye doctor refused to prescribe me bifocals or reading glasses because he didn't think I was employable for any job that involves reading.

Illiteracy isn't an acceptable alternative. Neither are all the "blind=stoopid" references. My eyes work differently than yours. I'm using my eyes for something else right now. Use your big people words. I see a blue rectangle, so you need to use your big people words now.

Nothing.

I don't love people because they are beautiful, they become beautiful to me when I love them.

Love never ends well. Hope it never happens again, or at least that it goes into remission for longer than six years this time. Stupid testosterone surges--this has got to be one of the longest and laziest natural menopauses in the history of pregnant mare piss deficiencies.

Pre-meno what turned me on was my own continued existence and the survival of the species.
