Fine, here's my insightful take on manhood:

How to tell if you're a man: Does it make you happy to think of yourself as one? If you're not sure, try it out. Take as much time as you need. Much love to you on this journey.

How to be a man: Think of yourself as one. If you feel safe doing so, tell other people.

How to be a good man: Be a good person while thinking of yourself as a man.

anyway it's fun how the US can just invade somalia and we don't see the world stand up and cover themselves in somali flags

And people are obeying? Why? Because the AI can change some codes and turn out the lights?

an utterly fearless man is a far more dangerous comrade than a coward.

not that this is wrong but I'd point out that adtech, self-driving, AI, and the gig economy demonstrate as well as crypto that capital intentionally and systematically seeks these frontiers to turn into a nightmarish maelstrom of abuse before the money dries up

I tell people that crypto is a free market in the sense of "free to be manipulated" (by whales, exchanges, and other big players) b/c there are no rules or oversight. It's not a free market in the sense of some unfettered or fairer version of capitalism.


β€œCare is a dimension of love, but simply giving care does not mean we are loving. Abuse and neglect negate love. Care and affirmation, the opposite of abuse and humiliation, are the foundations of love. No one can rightfully claim to be loving when behaving abusively” -bell hooks

Were I to you as the boss employing and paying you, would that satisfy you?
The learned, virtuous, benevolent, and the usual terms;
A man like me, and never the usual terms.
Neither a servant nor a master am I;
I take no sooner a large price than a small priceβ€”I will have my own,
whoever enjoys me;

I will take any opportunity to insult Balenciaga, apparently

β€œYoung people in Europe and North America in particular, but increasingly throughout the world, are being psychologically prepared for useless jobs, trained in how to pretend to work, and then by various means shepherded into jobs that almost nobody really believes serve any meaningful purpose.”

one of my fav things about watching older people use the computer is when they click the mouse really hard. like hell yeah, that definitely makes it load faster

vent, anti-blackness 

There's a certain dominant media cauldron of white moderates who take fascist greivance at face value, launder it by stripping out the most blatant dogwhistles, and continue to amplify racist ideas using more palatable rhetoric.

If someone uncritically forms their worldview based on such media, learns to excise anti-black terms from their vocabulary one-by-one, but does nothing to change their media consumption habits...I'm not sure that person actually ends up less racist.
