At the time when we need everyone to wash hands so many people have no water nor soap.
At the time where it would be cheaper to not put people in jails we put them in jails and bill them for that.
At the time when we need everyone to stay home we rush them outside under the risk of losing everything.
It doesn't make sense to anyone yet here we are.

idk how people are relaxing during travel. you need so much energy, it's not "resting".

The worst thing about 21st century internet culture? The fact that two generations of people have been conditioned to refer to everything they do as "content".

Are you a writer? An artist? A photographer? A film maker? A blogger? It no longer matters. You're a content creator and something something monetisation.

I keep breaking things in tusky and elsewhere and sometimes I just want to curl up and not touch anything

Early morning was so good, chilly enough to enjoy the sun.

illustrated haiku, south asian heritage month, CW eye contact 

huh! just found out its been #southasianheritagemonth - I'm 2nd gen Punjabi Sikh. Music is pretty integral to Sikhism - whilst I can only speak/understand English, I've always loved kirtans and am often listening to them whilst drawing these.

neurodiverse meta 

i guess for an example, me and other nd ppl have talked b4 about how "reply guy" stuff really freaked us out bc we were scared that's what we were doing and no one told us. this is a pretty widely held anxiety among particularly adhd/autistic ppl (who info dump) yet the popular response to it is usually along the lines of "you're just privileged ppl trying to use ur mental health as a defense for being shitty" or "how dare you imply nd ppl can't learn social cues"

"missing social cues" doesn't always mean "didn't get the lewd joke or whatever". sometimes it's not realizing you were hurting your friends feelings. sometimes it's talking over someone because you're really excited. sometimes it's not realizing the topic at hand is making someone really uncomfortable

i think something a lot of you forget is that many if not most americans have no fucking clue what anarchism means as a political ideology and think its just like a deranged guy holding a molotov

my youngest calls hand sanitizer "hanitizer" and I think that's much better

the function of the pinephone isn't to be used as a phone it's so when people tell you to add them on whatsapp you say you can't because your phone runs gentoo

And giving a training to somebody and experiencing them getting the concept of a menu, or how a spell checker can help them, or witnessing them find something on the internet for the first time, because the screen reader spoke their language, was absolutely rewarding.
