hi jazz catte this isnt that relevant to the current discussion but some time ago you (i think it was you) talked about a particular line of thinking that said exhausting capitalism and bringing its inevitable downfall more quickly was the way to go for a communist revolution. i was wondering what that current is called bc id like to read more on it? sorry for the random question btw its just that youre one of the smartest ppl i follow

atomicdomme:

im not very smart but it sounds like you’re talking about accelerationism which is trash and belongs in the garbage.

idk if its a line of thought advocated seriously by anyone outside of idiots on web forums but it basically takes “things will get worse before they get better” and turns that into “therefore as The True Radicals we must work to make things worse and attack any harm-reduction as the True Enemy Of Revolution”.

its bad

you spelled ɯsᴉuoᴉʇɐɹǝllǝɔɔɐ wrong

My grandmother recently passed on, and boy… was she a funny lady. She was known far and wide for her candor and lack of filter. One of the running jokes in our family was when we had to talk to Grandma about the DNR order; whether she would like to be resuscitated when the time came or whether she would like to be let go. After thinking for a little while she said “I’d like you to try three times. If it doesn’t stick, then let me go.” Grandma probably didn’t anticipate for this to be worthy life advice. But it applies in all areas of our lives. You have to go on three dates before you make a decision about a relationship. You have to go to three classes before you drop the course. You have to strike out three times before you’re sent back to the bench. Her advice is etched onto my left arm.
In jewish tradition, it is said that your life cannot truly end when your soul leaves your body. If you have loved and have been loved, your life in woven into the lives of your loved ones. In that regard, my grandmother can never die. She is, forever, woven into me.


i have a similarly fantastic late grandmother, and a (not particularly similar, but similarly sentimented) tattoo in remembrance of her.  here’s to the wonderful women who taught us the important things.

i get why a lot of people are very defensive of the “choose to be trans! reject cisness always!” narrative.  my life would have been a lot better if i knew i could “choose” transness, and the “born this way” rhetoric is dominating and shitty and alienating.  but i don’t think being granted the choice to move within this gender system makes this system any less awful and exploitative.  i feel like reifying individualist choice (choose to be trans!) is not sufficient to challenge gender.  i do not conceptualize my trans womanhood as a choice, i can not think of any relation i have to gender that is not coercive in one way or another.

ppl are always like “no game is perfect you can’t please EVERYbody” but when was the last time you heard a motherfucker complain about portal

my boyfriend got a Destiny beta code and i played long enough to get bored (five minutes)

i spent more time checking out the character creator and the lady faces look pretty good IMO. male faces are okay if you want to play a man with a huge square jaw. 

so the faces look nice but then they modeled the hair after string mops??? why? hey Bungie have you ever seen hair, it’s soft and pretty and doesn’t look like string. 

hair is ridiculously hard to make look realistic
