It bothers me when I see people whinging about people who "follow too many accounts" on microblogging platforms. Particularly on fedi.

Like,maybe people use social media differently from the way you do, yeah? Fedi is all about curating your own experience, and maybe some people want a different experience from yours.

"We stand upon the precipice of change. The world fears the inevitable plummet in to the abyss. Watch for that moment, and when it comes, do not hesitate to leap. It is only when you fall that you learn whether you can fly."

"Men are always alright. Right up until they pull the trigger. And then we watch the neighbors solemnly march out to the news cameras to tell us: 'He was such a nice, quiet guy.'"

Most comments say colonization is fine, indigenous genocide is not contemporary, and Native people are lazy, greedy, stupid, etc.

I'm drawing it to y'all's attention because Native stuff doesn't make the news too often, and so y'all might not be aware that this is how most folk feel about us whenever we are acknowledged.

This is only about half the food I've got right now, and the local mutualists haven't even shown up with their contribution.

Free, take as much as you want, no need to fill out any papers or show any ID or anything.

A smaller portion of food is available 24/7 for those who cannot come during daytime hours for whatever reason, and has been every day since July 1st, and almost every day since March 7th!

Think this is cool? See if there's a local Food Not Bombs group and you might be able to help out with something similar!

(Wanna support me doing this? emsenn.net/support/ has details on how)

Thought I'd give #inkscape a try and worked through a melon tutorial. It's my first SVG ever and I think it came out pretty okay.

"[A recipient of our aid] called United Healthcare, [one of the largest health insurers in the USA] because they used to have a program where they would deliver food for a week for folk shomebound after a hospital stay in case he is hospitalized for COVID. They told him they discontinued it and told us to get in touch with Food Not Bombs. A major insurance company is directing folks to locacl mutual aid groups. Fuck our government and thank you for everything y'all are doing for our people."
