Once my boyfriend told me: “You’re not a burden. A burden is something you’re forced to carry against your will. I freely choose to be a part of your life and that means you aren’t a burden to me.” I’m passing it on in case some of you need to be reminded of that.
Good morning Minecraftia! It’s a beautiful sunny morning with mild winds at 3 blocks per second and skeletons on fire. Coming up is Eye of The Spider by Itsoo1 and then Diggy Diggy Hole, after these messages. You are listening to 106.7, the BLOCK!
Hey everyone, my friends and I are crowdfunding on behalf of one of our dear friends who is a queer black Muslim woman looking to raise $1600 for first month’s and security deposit to move into a new place to escape her islamophobic and borderline abusive household at the end of the month. She has been enduring the abuse for all of Ramadan and it has taken a mental toll.
Her roommates have repeatedly put her in dangerous situations and have been bullying and gaslighting her. She is asking that we post this anonymously, on her behalf, so that she isn’t bullied further
During Eid, she was called a variety of obscenities which resulted in her having another bad panic attack to where she doesn’t feel comfortable sleeping in her own home. She is currently staying at a friends but needs to move into a new apartment ASAP. We are crowdfunding on her behalf because she had put off work (works from home) because of the tumultuous setting where she is constantly being ambushed

Was thinking about how people talk about indigenous people like we’re cavemen and then I realized that like, talking about Actual ancient people like they were stupid is already inherently kind of. White
Like your whole idea of “advancement” is based on weaponry and you have no concept of honoring your ancestors outside of like, maybe respecting recently dead people like your grandparents etc it’s like. Idk if I’m articulating this well at all but that’s the THING isn’t it?
Obviously I’m not trying to like pretend pre-colonial Native people were all just vibing in the grass braiding each other’s hair we had warfare I’m literally Lakota LMAO but it’s like……….. The way colonizers think of advancing as a society in terms of distancing themselves from the earth instead of living within it. The way colonizers think they’re smarter than you because they had guns. The way they disregard the knowledge of people who came before them. Yknow? Yknow???
It’s sad that colonizers have this mindset where humans aren’t apart of nature and how the natives were/are stupid somehow for taking care and interacting with the earth in a positive way…bc it haulted “development”. Like as if preventing wild fires, dust storms, and positively interacting with wildlife is just stupid? As if the knowledge doesn’t help care and develope the earth for the future generations? I’m guessing they only view “development” as destroying the earth for your own gains.
^^^ yes that exactly.. It’s like. It doesn’t even occur to them that we actually knew what we’re doing, like this land was taken care of for thousands of years by accident. Like we would have exploited it if we were “advanced” enough to, because of course everyone views the world around them as something to bleed dry, right? /s
if my mutuals have million number of reblogs i am one of them. if my mutuals have ten reblogs i am one of them. if my mutuals have no reblogs. that means i am no more on the earth. if world against my mutuals, i am against the world. i love my mutuals till my last breath… die hard fan of my mutuals. Hit reblog if u think mutuals best & smart in the world
i’m biased obviously but i kind of think we shouldn’t pathologize fear of driving. like unlike relationship building and hygiene and things like that, driving is nowhere near a natural part of life and i don’t think it’s irrational to fear doing it. people also have different skill sets and abilities, some people will just simply never be able to feel safe operating a car like in the same way that some people will never feel safe performing surgery on someone. that’s an extreme example but you see what i’m saying, like, we have normalized driving as something that everybody does so it seems like a symptom to not want to do it. but driving is not actually “normal” in the sense of what is innately required for a healthy human life vs what is a learned expectation ykwim
y’all do know the age in your bio thing is for adults right. minors should not be sharing actual ages online. if you must write something just say you are a minor (or if you want to be more specific try <14 or 15<). i cant stress enough that the internet is not as safe as you think it is, and the less personal details minors hand out, the better
If there was a way to run SUPER MEGA AD BLOCKER on this website I fucking would
“Please oh please open up your computer to a porn virus! If you don’t you’re evil!”
Freeloader Comin’ through!
We didn’t start this war internet users have with ads - We might have moaned about banner ads, but it was only when they started making noises when we might be listening to music or a podcast or whatever, causing two sound sorces at once, that we started trying to block ads universally rather than just a specific type of ad (pop ups).
And since then ads have gotten worse - Actual malware rather than merely breaking one of the fundamental sins of web design - though shalt not autoplay anything with sound. And the more aggressive a website is with ‘please turn off adblock’ the less I trust it to bother to vet ads and advertisers to make sure they’re not installing malware.
Not to mention that the idea that avoiding ads is “freeloading” is hilariously backward. Advertisement is a transaction between the platform and the advertiser, the user has no obligation to provide the views/clicks the platform has promised. Using an adblocker isn’t freeloading in the same way that leaving the room to get a snack during a commercial break isn’t cheating the tv network.
Ok y’all, I work as a web developer and I’m here to tell you that you are 100% right and that it’s shit. SO I’m going to tell you how to get around websites that block you from using their website if you’re using an adblocker.
Oh no! I’m blocked from viewing the website. It would be a terrible shame if I were able to right click and select the “inspect” feature
Click the three dots in the top right and open the “Settings” Menu
i DID see people on tiktok saying that we shouldn’t care about palestine because they’re conservative and anti lgbt and a whole bunch of shit and. for real? for real? THAT is touch grass. THAT is go outside and touch grass. zero compassion zero consideration for real people ZERO brain function in fact. like you know there ARE gay people in palestine? like if texas was getting air raided would you say fuck texans, theyre all republican? actually dont answer that lmfao we already saw it happen with the power outages. people will generalize and people will condemn without nuance or scrutiny. no sense of value for human life. who gives a shit about other people lol
