the radiation of vapor on this 19 degree day
the crisp smell of the desiccated air
the return of warmth and sensation to frosted flesh
the crunch of the leaves from the layers of frost as I go around the trail
the way that I smell of the forest and the outdoors and the wholesome sweat of exertion

Politics is more than having hot takes about the damned president.

This version of politics values a Colbert Report joke as "resistance" but not discussions of changing the very systems that cause Trump in the first place because the latter seeks to cause change while the former seeks to maintain the current system. It's a definition that will never actually solve anyone's problems because it's rooted in the fundamentally flawed ideology of neoliberalism that only ever seeks to preserve status quo and free market capitalism.

I think the article is a good example of neoliberalism's faux definition of "politics". People talk about leftist theory and experiences with hrt on Masto but since they don't talk about the current thing to make fun of Trump for it's "apolitical." Not only are discussions of leftist theory and people's LGBT+ experiences political but they are inherently more valuable to solving problems than the latest misspelling by a fascist leader.
