I'm a white settler living on stolen Multnomah and Chinook land.

I see ya'll getting harassed on here so I am ready to help collect my settler kin. My DMs are open if you need help telling wp to sit down.

And please please please call me out on my white bullshit when you see it. I know I have a lot to decolonize still and I'm willing to do that hard work.

Boosts welcome

New account, guess I'd better do another .

I'm Emily, 40ish woman living on stolen Chinook land also known as Portland Oregon. I work in IT, I have a single speed bicycle, I'm hella lesbian, and I successfully ran a one woman performance for 30 years or so where I convincingly appeared as a man in everyday life.

My political identity is anticapitalist and antibigot.

My heart belongs to all cats. I'm also very rad.

Is there much of a community on here for Kustom Live Wallpaper? I have some stuff I've made myself and would love to share the love and connect with others.

Uspol, anarchist anger 

I have been able to vote for 20 years, but I'm also an anarchist who refuses to vote and legitimize this corrupt state built on stolen land, so here's my historical perspective on the victors of every presidential election for those 20 years:

2000: the capitalist party
2004: the capitalist party
2008: the capitalist party
2012: the capitalist party
2016: the capitalist party
2020: the capitalist party

Here's Teag, my room mate's old cat. He passed away last year but he's still a beautiful cat.

He's always been missing his left arm, no idea how or when, but he'd still snuggle and play and hang out.

Cat pictures for Tuesday, likely cat eye contact 

Baby Garak on that same day.

Cat pictures for Tuesday, likely cat eye contact 

I'll be posting pictures of my cats all day. I don't have a name for doing this, I'm just going to do it because my therapist asked me to for them and I might as well post them on here too.

First up is the first picture taken of these two kids. Bashir with his eyes glued shut due to an eye infection, and his brother photo bombing.

Help needed, please boost 

So... I'm in need of some help.

I got laid off from my well paying IT job in March and was unable to find anything for the rest of the year. I used the time to study and try to find a job as a bike mechanic. I succeeded, but I also met an amazing woman and we got married in September.

But I cannot support two people on a bike mechanic's salary in Portland. I just can't. I got paid today and it's not even enough to cover rent. Even if it were, I'm without money for much of anything for the next two weeks. My wife has an EBT card but stretching that for two people is difficult.

I have 18 years of experience in information technology. I need a side job. I'd prefer something part time so I can keep doing bike wrenching so I don't want to die after working 40+ in an IT job full time, so I'm hoping maybe someone knows someone who has a small business and just needs someone to help with simple stuff, user creation, backup management, stuff like that, 10ish hours a week. I might be able to go half time at the bike shop but I really like my job and don't want to give up on the dream just yet.

Thanks for reading and hopefully boosting.

Pdxpol, protests, statues 

Y'all ever heard about bronze disease? It's awful! Poor unsuspecting statues are near impossible to save if they are recovered and reinstalled where they previously we're displayed! Would be a true shame if statues of, oh I dunno, Teddy Roosevelt or Abraham Lincoln were too contract such a thing!

Sexual violence mention, language semantics, be better 

Bad: telling someone to or saying someone should "get fucked" because that's implying that person should be raped.

Good: "go fuck yourself"/"they can go fuck themselves" because then at least they're leaving entirely and just masturbating.

Apparently this needs to be said.

Thinking about either 1) leaving Masto or 2) going instance only.

Got passed over for the job. And honestly? It's a sense of relief. I could have done it, I just... Really didn't want to. And I think that came through to them.

Really solidifies my resolve to get out of IT.

BBC, transmisia, negative 

So, a couple weeks back, the BBC's LBGT+ support page quietly dropped three trans-specific helplines:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/1nYWPTdMtKStFL2ztx1SV11/information-and-support-lgbt-issues

At the time, the reason was unknown even to the corporation's internal Pride Network.

Now, we hear the reason has been officially given - confirmation that they were 'dropped due to “audience complaints” relating to the “increasingly contested issues relating to trans issues and children”'.

https://www.pinknews.co.uk/2020/07/30/bbc-pride-trans-hate-campaign-mermaids-action-line-transphobia-gender-trust/

Fuck that with a rusty chainsaw. Removal of those support lines gives clear support to those who *don't need those helplines*, and unambiguously aligned management against trans people. It's not coincidental that with the ramping up of TERFs in the press has come a sharp rise in harassment and violent attacks against trans people; either the BBC supports that, or they oppose it.

Their complaints page:

Searching for remote jobs because fuck it why not.

Every ad I see lists that it's remote but in the description they always say "based in the office in [location]" and "requires regular client site visits".

I haaaaaaaaate this
