Hi everyone. I'm a student from the US, trying to figure out how to escape my gender along with my deeply colonized worldview. I'll probably talk about feelings, uspol, what i'm reading, and food.

How you can support me update. 

I'm phasing out Patreon in the long run, but I don't have a PayPal Pro account, so I can't take monthly subs through it yet, so if your preferred means of support is via Paypal, You can support me via Patreon.
patreon.com/maloki

If you use Credit Card but NOT with PayPal (it will be through Stripe) you can either set up a Monthly on Ko-Fi, because I have gold! If you are considering supporting me with more than 5 kofis a month, I rather have you support someone else with that extra money.

media, pol-adjacent 

- if all of the main characters are white/cishets :100_yikes:
- if there are queer/PoC but they're treated as containers for evil, abuse, suffering, and death :100_yikes:
- if there are PoC but they're all light-skinned af :100_yikes:
- if righteous anger is reserved only for the white dude character :100_yikes:
- if everyone is thin as a rail :100_yikes:
- if cops are depicted as noble public servants :100_yikes:
- if only the villains or the PoC have 'foreign' accents :100_yikes:
not an exhaustive list of things that bug me but oh so common

media, pol-adjacent 

i kinda want to watch a show, but i find most corporate media is either full of ridiculous microaggressions or is gaslighty about capitalism, cops, the military, "crime," body image, class, or who is depicted as worthy of empathy

cooking musing 

it's hard to add too much garlic to a dish. i don't think i've ever managed to do it, even when i double the amount of garlic in a recipe

too much ginger can cause flavor problems, but garlic, nah

cooking musing, non-vegetarian 

i have these cooking habits i pretty much always follow, like:
- caramelize any onions or mushrooms
- add more than the prescribed amount of garlic
- toast whole spices and nuts before grinding/adding to dish
- brown the surface of meats before adding them to a soup or stew
- add wine to simmered tomato or mushroom-based dishes
etc.

cooking musing 

thinking about whether there any cooked dishes where it's not better to caramelize the onions. all I can think of is salsa

Just as a heads up, the feds have started sniffing around the town I live in, are asking for information about election related actions and trying to find infiltrators and informants.

This is just the beginning; we should all expect to see this sort of activity in the near future.

Pass these resources around to everyone you know:

Zoom censoring Palestine (again) 

https://palestinelegal.org/news/2020/10/23/big-tech-censors-palestine-again

"Zoom unilaterally canceled the University of Hawai'i event on Wednesday, two days before the webinar—mirroring its actions against San Francisco State, with reports of other cancelations today including at NYU, where Senior Staff Attorney Radhika Sainath is scheduled to speak. Facebook also deleted an event at the University of Western Ontario within hours of it being posted, and organizers had their accounts immediately disabled."
