You may know I spent most of yesterday crying.

And I'm kind of crying again now as I've finished writing this, but I need to share it, because I think it's important for closure, but also for other people to understand grief as love. and that you can grieve people who aren't dead, and relationships lost.

Grief: A love letter

GoFundMe for a friend 💞 

I know we've all been in situations out of our control, where any little help would've made a huge difference, and today is a day when you can make a huge difference in someone else's life.

A friend of mine is in need, she's got into medical debt for a surgery (for endometriosis) that needs to be paid off at a fairly high rate every month (£500) and after having been made redundant 3 times during the pandemic and subsequent lockdown/quarantines in 2020, it's getting harder and harder for her to pay this every month on her own. I've helped her organize this GoFundMe, and our goal is to reach at least £500/month until it's paid off.

If you're a friend of mine, and have a job and can afford to help with £4 every month until it's paid off, or just £4 today. Anything will help her in the long run.

If you don't have money: you can boost this post. (additional ways to help will be in the next post in this thread)

Our goal is to make sure she can pay rent and food every month, along with her medical debt, while also have space for emergencies.

Thank you in advance ❤

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.

food, parody of revolting marketing copy 

it caused me psychic pain to write this. but heck if the universal marketing voice of late capitalism isn't doing its best to lay bare the mode of company-customer relationship, in which i am a farmed pig at a trough.

EU is pushing through a new law that will require phone manufacturers to support their products for a longer time, because so many phones are made useless when they would work for much longer without planned obsolescence.

Capitalist corporations need such expensive babysitters.

online discourse in general 

@dumpsterqueer several years ago, before everything became mashed together under "discourse" we would have called this wank, rolled our eyes and left them to their own bullshit. we've really lost the tiers and scales of how important something actually is and heightened EVERY. DAMN. ISSUE to immense levels of severity and half the time its just people rubbing their own shit on the walls.

"Extending lifespan of smartphones [by one year] would cut same CO₂ as eliminating two million cars"

Cool, make it more than just one year then.

I'm floored, because DuoLingo launched a beta for Navajo!

It's honestly making me a little emotional, because my family never inherited our ancestral language. My grandfather's generation were taken from their families and forced into indian boarding schools where they beat you for practicing your culture.

Seeing an indigenous language preserved in a mainstream tool is incredible.

Has anyone got Controller recommendations for people with small hands?

Thanks.

Black Lives Matter 

The reason we regard literally every non-black with “BLM” or something similar in the bio/name as full of shit is that non-blacks who loudly pronounce how pro-Black they supposedly are in this way don't tend to be about that life.

“BLM” hasn't been true in our collective experiences & it hasn't been true in our historical studies either.

Those who've really made a difference, we've found, have done so in other ways. Often with little fanfare by necessity.

Loa didn't tell me how much milk he wanted. I have not internalized how much a pint is yet sooooooooo I may have made a small mistake. 😅 😂
