In love with the "fisher price baby brain" insult
my fiancé and I are scared.
we are multiply disabled and not receiving medical support.
absolutely losing our minds and also out of meds.
unable to get to the fucking doctor for help because our car is fucking broken and we live two hours away because we live in the fuckin sticks because this damn garage is the only free housing available to us and we have no money and are incapable of working enough to live. y’know, due to aforementioned disabilities.
that last bullet was a lot but hopefully you get my point.
please help. we are fucking drowning. we have so many needs going unmet. but right now we need meds and my partner needs to see a fucking doctor.
Saudi Arabia and the UAE are bombing Yemen right now. They wouldn't be able to do so without US support. The UN food agency recently warned that 13 million Yemenis are at risk of starving because of the genecodical US backed war. WIDE SPREAD SUFFERING in Yemen is going unnoticed.

Leftists, I want y’all to destroy the idea of “laziness” yesterday
Motivation, patience, and energy are limited resources, especially for people with executive dysfunction, mental disabilities, and physical disabilities.
Next time you want to assume you or someone else is being “lazy”, consider the actual reasons behind why there is not enough in them to do the thing.
Left to their own devices, free people are naturally driven to improve their lives and the lives of others,
Right wing arguments’ foundations depends on the assumption that humans are naturally selfish, evil, and “lazy”, and must be controlled by higher powers and punished when they don’t contribute enough (with the insistence that certain groups of people are more deserving of being controlled and punished than others)
Next time you notice you or someone else is struggling to accomplish something, don’t assume “laziness”, instead ask yourself: am I tired? Depleted of patience? In a bad mood? If I keep pushing myself through this, will it really be worth the distress?
Maybe what you need is rest, someone to talk to, mental health support, or to just be safe, with all your needs being met. Maybe we should eliminate “laziness” as an easy explanation and instead consider our needs first.
White queers are very very capable of being agents of white supremacy
This means white enbys, white trans women, white transmen, white ace and aro people. White whatever the fuck else. All very capable of being agents of white supremacy.
non-disruptive protest doesn't work.
aside from the fact that the point of a protest is to cause enough disruption that the government is forced to concede, there's also another element to this that i personally feel is more prevalent, especially these days with governments across the world cracking down on protest rights.
the way i see it, as do many others on the left, is that if protest is meant to force the hand of the state via disruption, but the state is the one to define what "acceptable" protest is, then there would never be a protest that works, as the state will inevitably only define protests that don't threaten the status quo as acceptable, thus preventing any real change from happening.
