genitals mention 

also might be worth mentioning here is a whole little train of thought i have regarding why i personally don't tuck. basically this: all attempts to "pass" are on some level trying to be seen as cis, but tucking is very specifically trying to *not* be seen as trans. and i don't really want people not to be able to see that i'm trans. in fact, i'm very open about it. what i actually want is to help build a society in which being visibly trans is not a *bad* thing.

like, i understand why people do it and people who tuck, people who go stealth, etc. are valid. but for me personally, i feel like something concrete i can do to contribute towards building that world is to be open and proud about being trans and to refuse to be ashamed of it. to fight to be accepted as trans rather than trying to be seen as cis. i want to be treated as a woman, yes, but i have no issue with people knowing that i'm a *trans* woman.

as a socialist i believe that nothing should be privatized, but it's especially unforgivable for the provision of the fundamental building blocks of modern human existence (food and water, housing, clothing, sanitation, medicine, electricity, communication, education, etc.) to be controlled by corporations whose ultimate reason for existence is the accumulation of profit. the transfer of all such services to community-accountable public ownership is a pressing immediate demand.

it's honestly still wild to me that cats are literally a self-cleaning pet lol. like to the point that the consensus on how often you should give your cat a bath (among people who aren't trying to sell you something) is "Never, unless they get just exceptionally dirty like falling in mud or something"

cats are naturally very diligent about staying clean because of their grooming instinct, since they're very flexible they can reach most places on their body with their tongue and since they have barbed tongues licking themselves actually does do stuff like dislodge little bits of dirt that may have gotten stuck in their fur

I love little things like that that are basically "animal does for companion of different species the same stuff it would do for a companion of its own species"

@kinsey @penello (of course they also do actually care about their property values, because capitalism, and the thing with dogwhistles is some people don't hear the high tones and actually think it's just about property values and not racism. but it's definitely also racism.)

@kinsey @penello There's another layer to this, though, and it can often apply to neighborhood associations too.

"Property values" is a dogwhistle. What they so, so often actually mean by that is "keeping black people out".

(HOAs were created to enforce whites-only neighborhoods in response to laws preventing governments from segregating neighborhoods.)

Any time I'm laying in bed Tabi tackles me all the time and sometimes just settles in on top of me, does this mean he loves me

So out of curiosity recently @penello and I decided to actually look up what exactly a "homeowners' association" even is to figure out what the deal with them is.

It basically comes down to this. A homeowners' association is usually run by a real estate developer, and they'll harass people about stuff like lawns and decorations because all they're concerned about is Property Values, i.e., how much money they can make. The name is kind of a sleight of hand. They're hoping you'll confuse it with a NEIGHBORHOOD association, which is an organization of residents set up to look out for the interests of the community.
