Just got an instant 12 hour suspension on birdapp for this post. They’re getting pretty fucking aggressive with these auto-moderations

One of my mates is looking for a 20ish (or less) paper on Occupy and neoliberalism. In the sense of how was Occupy backlash to the “success” of neoliberalism, and how did it demonstrate an alternative. This isn’t really my area but maybe some of you know.

The closest I got to accepting money was a smut peddler I follow offered up their wares, but as someone who was already a customer I felt bad taking away like 20 quid I would have given them eventually. Cuz I knew they were semi-broke and I was like “no bb please just keep it”

The world is fucked up, and none of get to live out even our modest dreams. If someone finds joy in something that doesn’t harm anyone else, leave them alone and don’t talk shit.

A fun game to play with your friends is “how little can I work without getting fired”

This article puts words to the feeling I’ve had for a long time about social justice language being misused to enable asocial behaviors

I am once again begging lefties to not conflate personal preference with morality.

Art is not meant to be for everyone.

Art is meant to be expressive.

Art is simply a creation of the artist.

Reject "degenerate" as a category.

The Right: "This art is degenerate!"

The "Left": "No, this art is degenerate!"
