arabic is cool because it’s a ridiculously difficult language and then on top of that there’s like 10 dialects that you need to consider too.
case in point: @packetcat saying cat in arabic is “qut” which confused me but then i remembered that Sudanese Arabic, my dialect, is influenced by Nubianm so we say kadēsa instead. But wait, Sudanese Arabic is ALSO different from Egyptian Arabic. “Shinu?” = what in Sudanese Arabic, “eh?” in Egyptian Arabic, “madha” in “standard" Arabic
Uspol, good news for queer folks
The gay/trans panic defense is banned in Washington now!
US pol, before you consider voting for Warren 1/
You may like her but...
- She won't get the plurality of the delegates. If she takes the nomination away from Sanders (who *will* get the plurality at this point), it will be very bad and she will lose no matter what.
- Even if she could get the plurality, her base of support is very narrow and she has a personal record that's very vulnerable to Trump. (https://www.currentaffairs.org/2019/09/the-prospect-of-an-elizabeth-warren-nomination-should-be-very-worrying/)
set a reminder on your phone to flip your mattress every 90 days!
don't flip it over like a hamburger. instead spin it 180 degrees so that what was once the head of the bed is now the foot
this will increase the evenness of your mattress' wear and, thus, the life of your mattress!

I set up a ko-fi to fundraise for my tuition this semester. I had to retake a class and i have to pay out of pocket for the costs. I don't have this sort of money and don't know what else to do. Please help?
Or if you prefer PayPal to directly send me money here's a link to that also.
Help me buy a new computer
My computer is dying. Audio/video is stuttering and the mouse sometimes lags far behind me. But I'm just barely scraping by on student loans and work study.
I know it's a big ask, but I'd like to raise $1500 for a new machine.
That said, if you can help me, maybe you can help others, too? Give something to non-white, Trans, Neurodiverse, Disabled people as well please.
asking for money. scam mention.
hi there. so an older woman on seekingarrangements scammed me out ot $168 dollars. she manipulated me, gaslit me, and used every technique in the book to make herself untraceable -- mainly by using dummy accounts and a burner phone number. im not the richest college student ever (in fact im on MA and a few months away from probably needing to go on EBT plus im also at risk of being homeless.)
so please help if u can.
thank u. donate/boost!

By my memory, every Wet'suwet'en you hear speak here has been arrested...

Remember that as you hear them speak, please.
Any sort of code bootcamp needs mandatory modules on workplace racism and "how not to be a techbro dickface".
I find it hilarious how Lambda School tries to low-key flex how """diverse""" the student body is while doing fuck all to prepare anyone for the daily racism that's gonna be headed their way.
Just a trans girl fiddling with computers and trying to get by.
