I prefer to use "neoliberal" instead of "liberal" to criticize , because in common discourse, "liberal" is generally associated with those who propose a more socially permissive society (e.g. gay rights). "Liberal" is only used to mean the economic stance in very limited cases, even amongst those who propose policies such as progressive taxation and/or other anti-capitalist measures. I generally prefer to use this to avoid confusion on everyone's part, including mine.

Hot take 

Women, at least in some circles and some cases these days, can be appreciated for both their beauty and their skill if they want it.

Men can only be appreciated for their skill if they want it, but almost never for their beauty.

Men have brought this mediocrity unto themselves through their repression.

I'm gonna post and be on mastodon less because I just feel stressed being here. I love its strong leftist energy, the same as or better than what Tumblr has but I can't fight the system when I have my own demons and hurdles to deal with.

As someone who is a person of color, for whom race is not much of a concern for them compared to gender, capitalism and their relationship with religion, should I refrain from talking about race?

Schools aren't allowed to use anti-capitalist external resources when planning their curriculum. What the fuck?

If long after our deaths we were to somehow be all reborn in a new though, what if you had flashbacks of your previous life? This would be particularly unsettling to you if you were born a different creature with a different physiology, and/or lived at a different technological attainment level or something else.

Many of us probably shouldn't take it for granted that we, who all use or many computers are all born humans. In the next , if it ever comes long after our deaths, some of us could be born as creatures who may be closer to the bottom of the food chain, or even in the top. Even in the top, we may still potentially be affected by a different species' environmental or other actions.

Tips for Americans trying to use the internet 

1) If something is "national", you need to specify it is the _American_ national thing. Other countries have their own national things.
2) If talking about states, you need to specify it is _American_ states. Other countries have their own states, and they don't care or know about yours.
3) Same for "the government", unless you are talking about all governments in general.
4) The majority of countries in the world are "other countries" and not the US.

The "anarkiddie" insult is interesting because it—in and of itself—reinforces the hierarchy between adults and children: that children's play is to be discouraged, while supposedly sensible norms of adulthood are to be conformed to.

Breonna Taylor 

I am not suggesting anyone take any course of action, but if everyone who is saying burn it down set one federal building on fire tonight at midnight. Then either they'd listen, or they'd have nowhere left to tyrannize us all from.

#ForJustOneArsonADay you too can help end the police state.

USpol, Fascism, Link from the White House 

Exec order just came down yesterday, antiracism and antisexist education is now essentialy forbidden in government agencies. This is straight up "war is peace, ignorance is wisdom" shit

whitehouse.gov/presidential-ac

Should we ban white people from any government positions and other high ranking positions, like being a CEO of a business?

Cops in Louisville just got away with murdering Breonna Taylor.

This ruling is just one more shovel full of dirt on the notion that Black people can get justice in US courts. The only way to get justice is to burn the country to the ground and build something better.

should be stopped because they're one of the world's most successful alt-right states, along with America and what most European nations and colonies are aspiring to. Election interference should be considered a minor issue to Americans and the world. Whether it occurred or not will NOT stop the mindsets of
, , , , that rob humans and all life of freedom.

Men will be the physical embodiment of mediocrity and shittiness until they fight repression. Gender policing, like all policing, needs to die.
