pol 

yeah, being in the US when 2 unrelated countries are having a conflict sucks, but you know what sucks even more? mandatory drafts in the country that is being invaded and new laws that make it illegal for anyone who can serve in the army to move or leave the country during war

uspol, violence 

oh no there's the comments like "i live in the US but the whole thing beterrn ukraine and russia is making me feel threatened because i'm american and the US might get itself involved"

once again begging americans to understand that there are actual real people who live in ukraine and do not wish to die because the governments decided to do their thing and that the US is not actually the center of every single event

Sleep is like bacon it’s really good but you can never get enough of it 🥱 🥓

You can look like anything or act in any way and still be nonbinary.

There's no consistent "nonbinary" way of doing anything that you must adhere to.

Being you is more than enough.

pet peeve: demsocs saying "we can afford a war with russia but we can't afford medicare for all??" as if you can only be mad about imperialism in the framework of you personally having something to gain

Ethan :heart_aro: boosted

oh right, demsocs are happy to benefit from global imperialism 🤷‍♀️

then again the idea of "pulling someone left" doesn't have much meaning to me anymore... someone can take up black flags and circle a's and still be a POS, but there's still folks who maybe just need that exposure to other ideas to not be caught up in other ideologies

apocalyptic revelry, lyricposting 

we've all begun to die,
and don't know what to do;
since it hurts to pray to God,
when God is dying too.
takes strength to laugh,
when you start to drown;
and we dance while the sky
crashes down.

"Variants make the vaccine less efficient at stopping the spread but they reduce deaths"

Ethan :heart_aro: boosted

Randomized double blind studies don't lie. The data doesn't lie. The ICU's filled mostly with the unvaccinated don't lie.

Guess who does?

Terrifying, isn't it? Normally, I would be fine with letting them have their echo chamber. Really, I support the right of the stupid to do what they want as long as it hurts no one else. Truly don't have enough caring left in me.

But this misinformation literally kills people and erodes one of the only defenses we have against infectious diseases.

I'm so proud right now. Not.

It's not worth it sacrifice yourself to a completely misguided political movement that doesn't have any of your real interests in mind. #GetVaccinated
