So I guess that's what I'm doing this evening?

...We might give up on using emoji, honestly.

#Google Has Quietly Dropped Ban on Personally Identifiable Web Tracking - ProPublica

propublica.org/article/google-

"The practical result of the change is that the DoubleClick ads that follow people around on the web may now be customized to them based on your name and other information Google knows about you. It also means that Google could now, if it wished to, build a complete portrait of a user by name, based on everything they write in email, every website they visit and the searches they conduct."

i was talking to a friend about past life stuff and we were like "we wish we had a soul name, something to identify ourselves through all our different lifetimes"

"ah, so we need to figure out our gamer tag"

โ€œWesterners are fond of the saying โ€˜Life isnโ€™t fair.โ€™ Then, they end in snide triumphant: โ€˜So get used to it!โ€™

What a cruel, sadistic notion to revel in! What a terrible, patriarchal response to a childโ€™s budding sense of ethics. Announce to an Iroquois, โ€˜Life isnโ€™t fair,โ€™ and her response will be: โ€˜Then make it fair!โ€

voting take, electoralism 

I'm not voting for Joe Biden in a million years. During the Obama campaign in which he was vice president for the us government desecrated entire communities in Syria and Iraq with his usage of drone strikes. In 2016 alone over 25000 bombs were dropped all over the middle East. At any time Biden had the power to stop it, to say no to the merciless mass slaughter of thousands but he didn't. During his campaign the us also deported five million people away from their homes and voted to authorize the war in Iraq. He also oppposed school desegregation when he was in office in the state of Delaware. If Biden was born anywhere else but the us he'd be considered an international symbol of evil

Dear fellow white people:

"White" and "normal" aren't synonyms.

Get used to the idea that you are one among an infinite selection of variations on a theme, and that MOST of those selections don't look, believe, or behave like you.

You are not normal. You are not better. You are just you.

Love,
Ellie

๐ŸŒผ I suppose I'll write our .

๐ŸŒผ We're Liliana, and we've known we're a system for about 6 months now. I'm Ami. Our body is 27 years old, and we're still debating a name for the body. Liliana was our online name and the one we've continued to use as a system name. We don't really have one clearly defined host; a few of us tend to pass around the role. We're leftists.

โœ๏ธ We're also *giant nerds* and most of our online presence is on Discord; we heard about plural.cafe from there and decided to check it out. Discord's great, but it's not exactly social media proper and we've not got the patience for a lot of the sites. This seemed like a more chill place than most, and as leftists employed as a software developer the whole model of it is appealing.

๐ŸŒท We're going to share an account since there's usually at least a couple of us co-conscious with whoever's fronting, so like,,, this'll be what we all use, some more than others. We'll do individual intros later I guess.
