pronouns, french 

I've been using they/them pronouns for myself for a few years now, but in my first language there's no neutral set, so I've been basically avoiding pronouns and gendered terms as much as I can.
There are neopronouns in french though, and I think I might be ready to try one out?

Sounds very much like Upper Wilds and I love it

Germanic languages: on living rooms, ovens, and cluttering 

In High German dialects (and afaik further South), the living room is called Wohnzimmer, meaning the exact same thing. The further you go North, into areas where Low German was traditionally spoken, the more often you will find Stube instead, which you will also encounter in the North Germanic languages (as stue for example). This word is cognate with the English word stove and has its origins in the fact that the living room used to be the only heated room in the house. The word Stövchen (little stove) also exists in northern Germany and refers to a tea warmer with candles in it. Another word for Stube in the Low German sprachraum is Döns, from which Gedöns (clutter; random things) is derived, because the central, heated living room would of course have everyone's stuff in it in the days before radiators, when most of the time would be spent there.

Hey, I urgently need to move to #berlin, and my flat arrangement just fell through, so I'm looking for a room. Ideally:

- lease at least until July
- with Anmeldung
- near Görlitzer Park (Kreuzberg)
- with lovely people

But I literally need to move in within 10 days, so I'll take anything. LMK if you/someone you know is looking for a mostly quiet, mostly clean, mostly vegan flatmate.

A trusted person was asking for signal boost for this.

A comrade is needing funds for their top surgery :trans_heart:

Healthcare for trans folks is totally inadequate in the UK, forcing many to go private.

Please donate and boost if you can.

I'm working for a big tech company in California. Yesterday all employees received an email from our security guys.

We have to deactivate all personal assistant gadgets (like Alexa) during worktime in the homeoffice.

They have evidence that these gadgets are recording audio from conference calls.

Nothing new to me but notable that I've got this order.

treehouse occupation in flensburg in danger 

In #flensburg (city in germany) environmentalists occupy in tree houses a tiny forest to protect it from the rich destroying it. Investors aim to build a hotel and a car park, at the space trees are standing.

->This morning, private hired security workers started to destroy the infrastructure of the occupation, endangering those living there. An entire tree house felt even down.
Prior to that, there was a statement from local officials that eviction will be on pause, as a measurement against the mutated corona virus variant that is spreading.

It's everywhere the same. Capitalist working on the destruction of our environment and society as a means to privatize profit and comunalize the costs.
Abolish capitalism! and every systemic injustice that stabilizes it.
