Lots of things are social constructs, like race, gender, art and Tuesday.

"Do you have a potion that makes me immune to alcohol?"
"Why do you ask?" said the witch.
"I don't like being drunk, but my friends insist I drink when I'm with them."
"Have you told them?"
"Yes, they ignore it."
"I don't have such a potion. I can help you find better friends."

Need help, cancer, bills, boosts+++ 

We've received another bill, this time for ER Services. This adds another $705.15 onto what we already owe, meaning the fundraiser has to hit around $4700 to pay everything current off. We're down $1041 from that and I'm scared, again. Please boost and share in whatever space you're able and give if you can.

Physical, unpaid, redacted bills below.

Before you assume that an item is "useless, ridiculous, unnecessary," first ask yourself, "Could this benefit a disabled person?"

quick, everyone ring James Winn Ltd of Thirsk (01845 524488) and ask them why they are unlawfully discriminating against people claiming housing benefit

I trust I’m not alone in swearing at inanimate objects.

It’s a sign of lingering patriarchy in the Christian Church that we sing hymns but no hyrrhs.

philosopher of mathematics, alive: God made the natural numbers, man made the rest.

the LORD of Hosts, Author of Creation and God of Yisroel, sitting on the Throne of Judgement: I Just Want To Make One Thing Clear. *gestures at the natural numbers, who shuffle nervously* I Did Not Make These Horrible Gremlins. I Do Not Know How They Got In Here. I Wish They Would Leave.

mention of TERFs 

Hi Mastodon, I’m feeling pretty overwhelmed by the sheer volume of TERFitude that’s all over the place right now.

The student bowed.
"Master, I am sorry."
"Why were you absent yesterday?" the sword master asked.
"I don't know. I... simply could not get out of bed."
"If this happens again..."
"Yes?"
"Allow yourself to stay in bed."
"Master?"
"A blunt sword can be honed. A broken one can not."

PSA:

yes, people want to do drugs. we've done so since the dawn of humanity. yes, people will always do so habitually and laws can't change that, the only thing they'll do is worsen our living conditions, thus providing incentive to do more drugs.

yes, some people will get addicted and they need care and recognition as human beings (Portugal, perhaps the most leftist country in Europe in terms of government and electoral politics, is a good example for this).

no, nobody wants to be an addict. nobody wakes up on a Saturday morning thinking "you know what would be great? feeling this soul-crushing craving every day of my life".

and still there are addicts, and we go through this every day of our lives, and whatever bourgeois media wants you to think, WE ARE PEOPLE. WE ARE HUMAN BEINGS deserving of common decency and who have feelings & basics needs & we are more than our addiction.

most of us would prefer not being addicted but this culture would triumphantly walk over our poisoned bodies to make The Drug Problem a non-issue, or blame us for it.

thanks for bearing with me.

Shout-out to The Weather Girls for their commitment to journalistic integrity, not letting news media cite vague sources in their 1982 hit "It's Raining Men"

> "According to our sources"

> "What sources now?"

LotRposting, death 

I'm just saying, if tens of thousands of people die every time a hobbit goes on an adventure, maybe they should just stay home

@melivia @jimpjorps headcannon? why he was the greatest king of the franks there ever was

one of the things I hate most about politics, all politics, left and right, is the objectification of people, the reduction of people to their usefulness to a cause. We are so much more than just blocks of power to be built. Yes, I believe in the strength of us together, I believe in the masses, I believe in community and its abilities. But I fundamentally believe that any effort to organize people must view them as people, must be open to the real concerns of whoever we're looking in the eye.

When the Vikings sent ships to pillage the east coast of Yorkshire, I hope that one of those Vikings had a t-shirt which said BORN TO RAZE HULL.

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
