I'm a white cishet man, more or less living at the top of Privilege Mountain, trying to learn to dismantle and undermine that privilege.

Things I'm (interested in?) learning about:

This is, of course, incomplete. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Uh. What do you do when the post you pinned to your profile is out of date? I guess you make a follow-up post with the correction, pin it and hope people notice?

Anyway, uh, in the above post, I describe myself as "cishet", but I figured out I'm actually pansomethingual? Only in the last, like, 8 months or so. I'm still a white cis man, so the thing about Privilege Mountain is still pretty accurate, though. But, yeah. :pansexual_flag:

I'll tell you a secret. Today, I was disastrously bisexual.

I cannot figure out the rhythm that’s going on in the last few beats of the Mandalorian’s theme’s A section. It’s some triplet business, maybe? But the stress makes it sound like it might be a brief time signature change. Any ideas? Please to boost.

I've been thinking a lot lately about how unorganized the left, and indeed, even conservative communities really are, so here's an effort to change that.

This isn't designed to be a go-to solution for every problem, but rather, it's meant as a primer on how to get you and your community started on finding and enacting those solutions.

Tired: "men are too emotional to be leaders." *replicates the sexist assumption that unemotionality is always a superior trait and is inherently associated with dominance/authority.*

Wired: "Men aren't emotional enough to be leaders." *Hot take. Asserts the value of traits devalued by patriarchy. Radically re-envisions what leadership ought to look like. Doesn't throw men who experience positive emotions intensely under the bus for being insufficiently "in-control" (read: masculine).*

IoT devices suck shit and i literally never want my fucking coffee maker or thermostat connected to my wifi

i will die on this hill

@benhamill @alyaza And different people have skillets better or worse for different forms of action and organising. And they'll all work better if the people doing them understand the value and use of the other forms. Electoral pol activists who understand the need for politics to make space for grassroots/community activism plus grassroots activists who understand the role elected pol can play in reducing pressure on the most vulnerable would be a fine combination.

so yeah, joe biden and pete buttigieg are soulless ghouls and i hope either bernie or warren wins the primary because they're the only people who even want to attempt reform, much less the revolution we need. but i'm also not about to fucking starve in the name of upholding some nonsense anti-electoral socialist dogma

it's a long shot, but i'm putting out feelers wherever i can -

my best friend is really struggling financially, so if anyone knows of legitimate part-time work with flexible hours, #freelance work or otherwise, let me know - #telecommuting or #onlinejob s are great, being able to set your own workload is great, etc.

they have some disabilities & auditory processing wonk meaning transcription work is not on the table, and can't type super fast, but have a bachelor's and are an excellent writer.

to the tune of TMNT 

Ah shit. I'm meant to be in a video at work talking about why I like working in our office. I forgot to wear my "Let Trans Women Live" shirt of whatever other activist slogan. Shit shit shit. Ah well.

I have _wicked_ delayed onset muscle soreness today. Varying your workout routine is awful/awesome. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

Welp. I forgot to bring my book. So here I am on the bus on my phone like everyone else. Who’s an elitist literati NOW? Not this asshole. 😜

I kiiiiiiiinda want to train myself to replace "dude" with "friend" in 100% of usages. The, like, disdainful "dude" being "friend" instead is pretty great.
