The people running the state of Nebraska must be really happy Facebook is such an easy scapegoat. The State uses a warrant to keep tabs on a minors reproductive organs and FB takes the majority of the heat because they didn’t stick their own necks out in the process? Reactionaries have it so easy these days…

Had to take the bus into town today, and wore a kilt. Some Delores decided to take issue; which sadly I'm used to. "Why are you wearing a skirt?!" and so on. As I said, used to it (and big scary white dude, so I have some privilege to wield), so I'm calmly addressing it with her

But then she said "well how am I supposed to explain that to my kid?!", and friends, I didn't have to say a thing, because the most awesome Black lady jumped in. She turned to her kid (I'd guess roughly 13 years old) and said "hey, why is he allowed to wear a skirt?"

Kid: "he's grown enough to wear whatever the fuck he wants"

Mom: "see?! Ain't hard ma'am"

Delores huffed but that was pretty much the end 🤣

Unless you already have enough money to live solely off the interest, you’re not a capitalist. You’re merely a supporter of capitalists.

To wildly misquote John Mulaney, Capitalism is a hooker, “and you are an idiot who fell in love with her. She’s not gonna do anything else for you. It’s done.”

fuck yeah to all the artists joining the fediverse. this is for you.

You may be seeing this a lot for the next couple days so I apologize for the repetition. As @Gargron said, if you want your friends to try Mastodon you should direct them to joinmastodon.org rather than one of the big instances directly. It will potentially help spread out the load of all the new users as well as provide some on boarding to help people find awesome services like !
