get notifications for important fb pages

reminder: if you like a page for something political, an NGO or something that you really care about, make sure to also hit ‘get notifications’ or you’re probably never going to see their updates again.

fb is currently set up to basically require pages to pay to show up in a feed if they don’t already have ‘viral’ (read: baseline lowest common denom content that appeals to a lot of ppl or fans) stuff that gets a ton of likes as soon as it’s posted. i administrate a non-profit’s page so have considerable insight into this.

this matters because non-profits don’t really have budget or often specific organizational stuff set up to pay to promote these posts. so get notifications if you want to see them and be reminded about the things you care about.

…I’m not sure how or why somebody turned a moderately entertaining Reddit meme into Darkseid?

I wonder if any queers have figured out that radical communities model of “good & evil/problematic” is like really essentialist and basically reflective of Western models of innocence, or even virginity.

losing people to drugs and alcohol is the worst because they destroy any good memories you have of them before forcing you to deal with the empty space they leave behind.  also whoever keeps putting the few quotes i said early in my career about drugs back into my wikipedia page is an asshole.  I don’t want that to be part of my narrative, and if it has to be I want people to know that i hate hard drugs.  All they’ve ever done is kill my friends and cause me to be unproductive.  Editing a website that people take seriously and reference all the time so that it looks like i think amphetamines are cool is incredibly irresponsible, people might read that and think its a cool thing to emulate.  I hope you know you are doing the world a disservice.  I just watched another person I care deeply about basically turn into gollum and my heart is broken.

award acceptance speech:

"i’m here because i’m lucky. i worked hard and i worked smart, but so did many other people and they’re not here. i want you to look around you, look where i came from and see the talent, skill, ability and drive there. don’t just look up to me, i’m being held up as an example of meritocracy but our system needs idols to keep the illusion of ‘best’ going."

Stop calling what’s happening in Ferguson a “riot”.

It is not a riot.

Vancouver losing the Stanley Cup a few years ago was a riot. It was angry, drunken destruction with no purpose. (And as a Canadian, it was a shameful event)

Ferguson is not a riot. It is a protest. It is an uprising. It is a civil rights revolution. The prople of Ferguson may be angry, but they have a reason to be angry, and they are not violent, and they are not hooligans, thugs or looters. They are protesting for their human rights which are currently being denied.

Look at the difference between a riot and a protest. A riot is chaos. A protest has a purpose.

Photo of Portland suspect mistaken for Michael Brown

socialjusticekoolaid:

Please boost the hell out of this! I keep seeing the aforementioned photo attached to Mike as “the most damning evidence against his character.” Don’t let racist assholes define his legacy. They’ve already taken his life. #staywoke
