Summer seemed to end a few weeks earlier and much more definitively than usual this year, but that doesn't mean we're done with neighbourhood #florespondence
we were joking how we should go on #climatestrike all of next week instead of just on friday.
we had one terrible data loss at #work yesterday. another person who learned the hard way to do backups!
it's really hard to counter aids denialist's arguments, without having good knowledge about stuff yourself.
what's also good to hear is that those people from the CDC who were interviewed all say that they ruled out poppers as a cause, after investigating it and even after having done studies with control groups.
because denialists like Peter Duesberg are still saying that aids in the gay community of the 80ies was caused by poppers. which is so ignorant.
aids in the ronald reagan times
it's good to see how he, a straight doctor, speaks so passionate against the then government because of its neglect and outright disregard for gay lives.
(I'm trying to equip myself with knowledge and arguments against hiv/aids denialism because there has been a case in my circles.. )
hello @rebelfairy - welcome to weirder earth!

I'm a slow speaker, I can not speak fast. in school I was bullied because of it.
today I like my voice and how I speak, and I'm even annoyed when I hear people speak extremely fast, I find it stressful.
I don't know, can one deliberately speak a little slower? because I can't change my way to speak. I can try to speak faster, ultimately it never works. but does it work the other way around? anyone experienced in this?
Poverty in urban areas populated by people of colour is always framed as an issue because of the "criminality" and "violence" there, rather than the nightmarish living conditions their inhabitants have been forced to endure. White middle class people can only conceive of poverty as a problem when it is an inconvenience to them.
I started this sweater. I have 740m of handspun, handdyed yarn. then I have another batch of this yarn, but it is not dyed yet.
I'm loving the project so far, but I need to dye the rest of the yarn!
I think I can't replicate this color so I need to dye a contrast color, and the sweater will be looking a bit like patchwork, but that's ok, I like that!
