Humans evolved in a setting much closer to "hunter-gatherer" or "subsistence farmer" than "neoliberal hellscape". We were in communities where people worked together with extended kin daily for shared goals, with shared cultural ideals. We did not work silently, alone, and go home to an isolated atomic family or a one bedroom apartment. Boomers talk of a time where at the very least they cared for and were cared for by their company, and that kind of long-term, stable, reciprocal relationship worked pretty well for at least knowing your co-workers and their families, but as megacorps rose and pledged their devotion to shareholders over employees, that relationship is nearly extinct.
The only reason you come here and post is because you need to feel like you matter to someone and that someone matters to you. You need a community with shared goals and shared cultural values, and we are your tribe. It's just that our goals are as vapid as "laugh at the internet crazies". If you had a tribe, if relationships hadn't been measured and commodified and sold to shareholders, you could have done something more productive than reheat twitter shitposts for dramacoins. A lot of people blame helicopter parenting, or "everybody gets a trophy", or tumblr memes for the fact that the kids these days can't function in society without going to HR. Maybe they're right, but Ivy-educated rich kids whining to HR isn't even scratching the surface of the brokenness, as everyone here knows. JUST BY BEING ON THIS SITE READING THIS RIGHT NOW, you're outing yourself as just as dysfunctional and attention-seeking as the blue-haired xir that you seethepost about: You crave dramacoins because they represent reciprocal social value to the only watered-down gruel of community you can find. It's just that your cries for help are in a different language.
The solution, as always, is to seize the means of production and live in a commune. Science says so.
So the actual jannies are lazy fucks and it falls to me to make this announcement: @Aevann did a thing, so now you can see how many other autists are online in the sidebar.
I guess it updates like every 15 minutes or something. I'm not sure if it's a snapshot of every 15 minutes or if it's actually a time machine that glimpses how many NEETs are online 15 minutes from now. I would not doubt the 2nd option given @Aevann's programming skills.
Oh, also Carp wanted me to mention this came about because one antisemitic janny wanted to block a (((user))) or something. I'm reporting Carp to the ADL immedietly after hitting send BTW.
Please speculate wildly in the comments which janny you think is the bigot.

November 4th 2016 was “the worst night of my life”
Here she is
Shooter was probably a mayo.
Edit: Was a latinx
Tamar Reisman, an endocrinologist at Mount Sinai Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery, spoke to DailyMail.com about the process, and she said the regimen that the Reddit user took is 'pretty common' and completely safe.
'You can absolutely take progesterone while breastfeeding, that is done so frequently,' she explained.
'Any cis person who has just had a baby and wants birth control and is breast feeding - which is a huge number of people - ends up on a progestin birth control. It's safely used in lactating women.
'Domperidone is not FDA approved in the United States but not because it poses a risk in breastfeeding - domperidone is commonly used as a galactagogue around the world for increasing milk volume.
'The reason it's not FDA approved in the United States is because there was a case or two of patients using it [with an] IV and having heart rhythm abnormalities.
'But that's when it was given through IV, and that was the risk for the patient, that's not the issue when it comes to breast milk.
'Again, it's very commonly used in many countries around the world as a galactagogue.
'Domperidone is very commonly used in other countries for GI issues, in Canada you can get it for nausea, vomiting, all kinds of stomach issues.
'W e have a pretty good idea of its profile, only really minute concentrations of it gets into the breastmilk. We know the implications of that.'
The American Academy of Pediatrics lists progesterone as 'compatible' with breastfeeding, suggesting that it should be safe to nurse while on progesterone.
Childrens.health.qld.gov.au reported, 'A very small amount of the domperidone you take can pass into your breast milk, but there is no record of harmful side effects in the baby from the mother taking domperidone.'
When it comes to the Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle, Doctor Reisman said these are often used by women who are having trouble producing milk and pose no risk to the baby.
'Those are herbs which are also galactagogues. Those are very, very, very common supplements that breast feeding women use as galactagogues,' she explained.
'I know many, many, many women - cisgender women - take that as a means of increasing breast milk volume.'
Illi.org reported that the 'composition of milk produced by inducing lactation is comparable to that produced following birth.'
'The milk does not contain dangerous levels of artificial hormones - in fact, it very rarely contains any artificial hormones at all,' it added.
'In most cases, the only artificial hormones that are taken are estrogen and/or progesterone before there is milk production.
'Progesterone and estrogen levels are high during pregnancy and taking these hormones artificially may help to make the body think it is pregnant.'

The comic opens Ricky Gervais: SuperNature, which was released on Netflix on Tuesday (24 May), with a 15-minute-long segment about trans people and “cancel culture”.
“The worst thing you can say today is:’ Women don’t have penises’, right?” Gervais says in the special. “Now, no one saw that coming … We didn’t think we f**king had to.”
Just as he did with his 2018 Netflix special Humanity, Gervais uses SuperNature to hit back at critics who have slammed him for his over-reliance on cheap jokes about trans people by cracking more cheap jokes about trans people.
From AIDS to gender-affirming healthcare, Gervais “jokes” at the LGBTQ+ community’s expense throughout the show.
“Women,” he says, “I mean, the old-fashioned ones. The old-fashioned women. Oh God! You know, the ones with wombs. Those f**king dinosaurs.”
There are many reasons why a cis woman might not have a womb. About one in 5,000 women are born without a uterus because of a condition known as Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser, others have them removed for various medical reasons.
But Gervais is more concerned with trans women.
“No, I love the new women. They’re great, aren’t they?” he says. “The new ones we’ve been seeing lately. The ones with beards and c**ks. They’re as good as gold, I love them.”.
Ricky Gervais spends Netflix special tearing into ‘trendy’ trans people
After turning his attention to trans women’s access to public toilets – “What if he rapes me? What if she rapes you? You f**king TERF whore” – Gervais began attacking so-called cancel culture.
Using Kevin Hart as an example, Gervais claims the “dominant mob” decide who can be “cancelled” and that people can no longer “joke” about “identity politics”.
Hart was due to host the Academy Awards in 2019 until his historic homophobic tweets resurfaced. He initially refused to apologise but did so after being pressured to step down.
Despite claiming he’s no longer allowed to punch down, Gervais spends much of the special punching down at trans people.
“Ironically” struggling to name “female comedians” during the opening jokes, Gervais names Eddie Izzard to laughs from the audience.
“She’s brilliant, isn’t she?” Gervais says. “She’s not only a great comedienne, she’s also a great actress, isn’t she?
“She was brilliant in that thing as that man.”
Wondering what life would be if he were a teenager in these “woke times”, Gervais, of course, says he would “self-ID” as trans because he is “trendy”. He also cracks jokes about gender-affirming healthcare.
“I’d have a big f***y,” he says, adding: “I’d be a real woman … I’d be a little lesbian fella called Vicky Gervais.
“I’d probably be a butch lesbian ’cause of all the testosterone till then.”
It’s far from the firs time Gervais has resorted to relying on anti-trans “jokes” for his comedy.
In 2016 he was criticised for taking shots at Caitlyn Jenner while hosting the Golden Globes. Two years later, in his first Netflix special, he spent 15 minutes rehashing the controversy while deadnaming multiple times Jenner.
In SuperNature, Gervais claims that his comedic style is to “pretend” such gags are his views.
“OK, full disclosure, in real life, of course, I support trans rights,” Gervais says.
“I support all human rights and trans rights are human rights. Live your best life. Use your preferred pronoun.”
Trans viewers – if any – would find this hard to believe as seconds later Gervais adds: “But meet me halfway, ladies. Lose the c**k. That’s all I’m saying.”

Yes, America has festivals of the arts. What are you talking about? You've never been to local music venues, small film festivals, art districts of large cities? America doesn't have traditions? Look at holidays that are celebrated in America and not other countries. (53)
You could argue this line of talking about american culture is the very reason poor whites support some of the more extreme right wing ideologies. You get told enough that you have no culture you will latch on to any that says you are worthy. Self worth and racism and nationalism are linked in some very strange ways. (79)
In what ways? Racism and nationalism are features of European culture. Racism is distinctly European while European nationalism takes its distinctive character from nationalism to relationship with racism at least since the second half of the 15th century.Those cultural elements are created by neither an absence of culture nor because someone felt blue when someone said “you have no culture.“ (-47)
Ok I'm not american but this is stupid. Star Wars has plenty of value, marvel comics have as well, even the marvel movies do. And if you want something more deep hollyweird has this as well. Private Ryan, Schindlers List, Stanley Kubrick, David lynch, etc... Your argument boils down to "Holywood is not art cause it's not old" (47)
This is a much better explanation of what you were trying to say. It's probably easier to convey what you meant but just saying - Europeans invented the concept of "race" - rather than - racism is distinctly European. The second statement is only true with lots of qualification - because "racism" has come to broadly encompass many different definitions throughout history, but the first comment is unquestionably true. (6)
I’ll take your word for it but whatever it is that racism has broadly become construed as is exactly the work racism is supposed to do. From the Haitian revolution to colonial Virginia, lawmakers and slave owners wanted to create a world both on the plantation and in a courtroom in which no African knew the difference between a world in which the raw power of a white man was anything but uncontestable. Slave holders in the Spanish colonies, according to Anglo-Saxon racists, got this racial order of things terribly wrong by allowing so-called racial mixing and allowing severely brutalized slaves the opportunity to have their day in court. This notion of absolute dominance over and against the personhood of another person on the basis of so-called “Race“ is what makes the invention of race a distinct invention of a distinct group of people.“Aren’t we all just a little bit racist?“ “Don’t we all have some prejudices to overcome?“ The popular usage of the word “Race“ has a specific raci...

So thievery is our culture. Ah now you are starting to see how indians see it.And yeah its collective trauma alright innit?Its funny cuz i dont see myself as american, i see myself as annishnabe. (-14)
My guy, history is more nuanced than you make it out to be. Damn near every nations has atrocities. Genocides, slavery, human sacrifices, wars, and the list goes on. Whether it be nations or tribes humans have done fucked up shit regardless of origin. Can’t be picking out things without the rest of the story. Otherwise I can say that your culture is that of getting genocided and put into reservations for the rest of time.Obviously that’s a fucked up statement and not representative of Native American/Indian culture because I’m cutting out a fuck ton of history and just making an ignorant statement.It’s easy to go and just say you aren’t part of American culture. Hell quite of few black movements tried doing that shit. That’s just dumb as hell to me though unless you outright renounce your citizenship and leave to a foreign nation. Instead of running away ya gotta face the music and try to make things better by educating others. Not just rejecting it. American culture is funny becaus... (12)
Agreed, America has a shitty culture, but it's culture nonetheless.I do think that's what people mean when they say that though, America's culture is that of the assembly line, vapid shit that pollutes everyone else's cultures, kinda like a parasite -- of course I'm talking about the pop culture that you gave examples of, I know that the people of America is very diverse and can't be all bottled up into a single harsh sentence. The culture that the US is known for everywhere else is shit.I personally hate it when people say "x isn't culture", because that's wrong. Everything is culture, good or bad. In America's case, very bad. (1)

“Oh, women!” he says. “Not all women, I mean the old-fashioned ones. The ones with wombs. Those fucking dinosaurs. I love the new women. They’re great, aren’t they? The new ones we’ve been seeing lately. The ones with beards and cocks"
“You can’t predict what will be offensive in the future,” Gervais says. “You don’t know who the dominant mob will be. The worst thing you can say today is, ‘Women don’t have penises,’ right?"
At the end, Gervais says, “In real life, I support trans rights. I support all human rights. Trans rights are human rights. Live your best life. Use your preferred pronouns. Be the gender that you feel you are. But meet me halfway, ladies. Lose the cock"
Pretty bleak times when comedians feel they are so desperate for material that they pick on the most vulnerable of our population to get a laugh. And I like Ricky and Dave. But come on guys - tell some Henry Kissinger jokes or something.
I'm a fan of Ricky Gervais's writing- Afterlife was an exceptional piece of writing, utterly brilliant. As Terry Pratchett said, 'Satire is meant to ridicule power. If you are laughing at people who are hurting, it's not satire, it's bullying'. 🤷♀️
But they aren't even jokes, he is simply repeating the rhetoric that women have been getting for years from TRAs. If it is seen as graphic that is because TRA's have been offensively graphic to women who wished to debate their own rights.
It fucking sucks that these hateful guys get paid millions to do specials full of lazy, cruel jokes at the expense of trans people, whose lives continue to be endangered by media like this.
Transphobic jokes have become the "Aristocrats" format of choice for "edgy" comedians, except it's no longer a competition for who can be the funniest, but who can be the cruelest
remember when jokes were supposed to be funny and didnt intentionally bash marginalized people to the point where society's collective view/respect of them diminished as a whole ?
Making fun of marginalized groups of people isn't comedy. The correct term is bullying.
it is so fucking easy to be funny and not transphobic. it’s literally so easy.
It sucks that when older comedians get backlash, they confuse that with having spoken truth to power, even if they’re just elucidating their fear that society is creeping past them by dumping on marginalized folks who pose no threat to them whatever.
I'm sorry, but is there something in their brains that makes middle-aged straight male comedians go full bigot for their "comedy" or something?
This shit is REALLY getting old FAST.

So if Russia was attacking Alaska, the USA would have to give Alaska to Russia as not "to make things worse" ?
No because the American military is 200x more powerful than the Ukrainian one
I don’t understand this position. If Russia gains territory by failing at an invasion, what is to prevent them from pulling this stunt in 5 to 10 years and gain more territory?
Putin will only understand one thing - utter defeat.
He's already proven he won't abide by any agreements. The key will be having the conflict cost him personally.
Every freedom loving army should be in Ukraine defending democracy regardless of the cost so that no would be dictator would ever dare again

popular wrasslin' news guy decides today is the day to burn down his journ*lism career by complaining that a train won the women's championship 3 years ago.
after that screenshot was shared by another popular wrasslin' personality (youtuber brian zane is where i first saw it so i assume he's the one that kicked all this off?) he decided to double down instead of beg forgiveness, which is hilarious.
You all mad at me but @TonyKhan put the Women’s strap on a male…
nyla rose (the train) responded in hilarious fashion
Hehehe you said strap on….

What did she mean by this? 🤔🤔🤔
In the post title she says that she lost her grandparents earlier this year.
Forehead like a billboard….. smile like a donkey. Doesn’t look like you have any tits. … you better be able to cook.
I can bake and cook and have a dog. That's about all I have going for me
Is the dog chained up so it can't run away?
