I am 100% trying to be supportive and not sarcastic as much as humanly possible and if there's ever any ambiguity please smack me because my calibrations might be misaligned. People-ing is hard!!

I'm Jason. I've done about a billion tours in the Great Internet Keyboard Wars, blogging in various places, starting out supporting atheism but realizing the atheist and skeptic communities were rife with racist, sexist, anti-trans bullshit. So I fought those folks instead.

I'm a cishetwhitedude. Mostly. I think I'm a teensy bit gay. I'm also Officially An Old. I have an anxiety disorder. And I'm pretty sure you're just humouring me if you fave my stuff.

I'm glad the other three people in the Bezos Dick Rocket survived, but I'm sad about the cost of their survival

How the fuck does one afford that much fireworks in this economy, unless they're the rich that we should be eating?

I can't remember the last day there hasn't been audible fireworks from my home, but I can virtually guarantee it was before June. Two doors down from me, one of my neighbors must have set off at least three or four grand of fireworks over the last week alone.

Jeff Bezos' ex, MacKenzie Scott, is giving the game away right now. She gave $2.7B away this year so far, and the National Review is trying to take her down with this shit?

How are we on a timeline where aging, tired nerds with broken bodies are fighting side by side with juggalos and furries and leather daddies against literal fascism?

the most classic move for a philosopher is to have the central concept of their work be mentioned exactly 2 times in a 500 page book and never fully explained

cucked analytic philosopher: you can't just invent new terms without rigorously defining them... ur arguments can't be examined for logical validity... please.....

alpha continental philosopher: i will develop an entire new branch of metaphysics based on this french pun

gonn just start taking memes i like and repost them here so i can find them again in the future when i want to show people since the only social stuff i use other than the fedi is several dozen open invite discord servers.

i am adding accessibility to these memes because i caption them. this justifies it and no one can tell me otherwise. :3c

Nazi language 

I'm getting really fucking tired of watching "degenerate" become a normalized word.

I accidentally did some work today and now the commies are coming to take my card away

policing, anti-blackness, derek chauvin 

"the only reason there's a guilty verdict is bc people demanded it" no

cops testified against chauvin so that they could stabilize their legitimacy and paint him as an aberration that needs to be "bias trained" out of the police

the guilty verdict is an act of demobilization, not a response to "the people." It is PLACATING "the people."

white people 

this isn't even like, something that requires you to know any theory or something?? they *jsut motherfucking gassed crowds days ago* and there's an *active fucking occupation* of the city can i just.

white people 

white people on facebook are basically like "glad we solved racism!" today and i am just so fucking. what.

Murder trial verdict 

I'm somehow angrier and more upset at this verdict BECAUSE of how novel and unique it is.

This should happen MORE. It shouldn't be a fucking celebration. Justice like this should be standard and unremarkable. The normal situation of cops going free should be exceptional and remarkable.

Murder trial verdict 

The fact that *FINALLY* a fucking white cop is getting thrown in jail for murdering an unarmed black man is both joyous in that it is finally happening and sickening in that it took THIS FUCKING LONG to reach that.

Thousands of National Guard troops have flooded our streets. The police are still killing on average 3 people per day. States across the US are passing laws criminalizing protesting. The system hasn't reformed itself since George Floyd, it's doubled down. #DerekChauvinVerdict
