Shoutout to the U.S. embassies in Austria, Chile, India, and South Korea who have directly ignored orders from the Trump administration in flying the pride flag
They’ve found really clever workarounds, as they were banned from flying the pride flag on the flag pole.
They aren’t ignoring orders: they are obeying the orders to the exact letter.
Also in Mexico City they couldn’t fly the flag but they didn’t said anything about a picture of a flying flag ❤️
THIS IS SOME GOD TIER CHAOTIC LAWFUL EVIL STUFF
dude you gotta do what you gotta do
The New Delhi Embassy decided to just light up the the whole building! I’m so proud!
THEY LITERALLY FLEW A PICTURE OF THE FLAG
Malicious Compliance is my favourite thing ever
Malicious Compliance is my favorite discriptive word now Thankyou
Homophobe in a position of power: don’t gay
*MALICIOUS COMPLIANCE INTENSIFIES*
do not confuse the lack of foot traffic outside for cleaning the environment. big oil companies dumping oil in the ocean and large industries polluting greenhouse gases are what is hurting the planet.
animals going into the city is just entropy, it is less noisy or they have become dependent on human food or they are foraging. that is just normal. not a sign that mother nature is healing. just shut up.
people aren’t the problem, capitalism is what is causing global warming and climate change. we need to stop massive waste and large scale pollution.
@glumshoe that’s because bees don’t sting royalty.
one of the scariest moments of my life was just last year when I was driving 80mph between two massive trucks and a wasp flew in through the open window, landed on my neck, and crawled up my cheek and across my eyelid under my glasses while I forced myself to hold Perfectly Still in mortal fear while Queen blasted out of my stereo
I did NOT know and this is both very cool that SDs can be trained for this, and very important that we all know how to respect it.
Not sure who needs to see this, but if a Service Dog starts backing into you, pushing you away from their handler, or they sit down at a leash distance from their handler
You Should Move Away.
They are performing a task known as “spacing” or “blocking” that helps reduce or prevent anxiety in their handler.
They are NOT “asking for pets” or being disobedient or asking to be spoken to. All you have to do is stay back from the dog and handler.
This is not a capslock PSA because I’m not sure how many people that don’t have a SD actually know this is a trained task.
And friendly reminder that the vast majority of those kept in local jails are being incarcerated pre-trial. As in, they have not yet been found guilty of anything, might not ever be found guilty of anything, and are supposed to be presumed innocent, and we as a society are still chill with killing them.
Friendly reminder that everyone kept in a local jail during this crisis is someone society is okay with killing.
Me, working from home and feeling a bit lost: the neighbours have kids… I guess I’ll write them a card that we could help out with shopping and stuff? that’s not invasive, right?
My husband, pretty much the only one still allowed to go to the university to run his data experiments in a deserted building: COLLEAGUES, FRIENDS, COUNTRYMEN, give! me! your plants!
My husband is proud to announce that he is now the caretaker of 127 plants
He and his 127 foster children are very happy
look i have legit been worrying about all the office plants out there
imagine you’re outside for some reason and you see a 4ft plague doctor wandering around
I feel like this is a very strong indication that he is being raised right
My son has decided to make a full cosplay of a plague doctor, bird mask and huge hat and all. He’s planning to wander (ALONE!!) in the fog in the early morning, with a storm lantern (battery operated), and a staff with a long chain hanging from it holding 2 or 3 small bells.
We’re all going to have PTSD and agoraphobia by the end of April
Like, my grandparents lived through the Great Depression and never really managed to give up their learned habits from that experience. Now, instead of “Why are you guys sitting in the dark? You can afford to turn lights on…” it’s going to be “Why do you feel guilty about going to the grocery store? You aren’t infecting anybody.”
I’m already planning to have big bottles of hand sanitizer, and gloves for the rest of my life, also I want to buy an old school freezer, you know those ones that look like a coffin? I want one, and I want to fill it with frozen meat so I never EVER have to feel this fucking terror of what I’ll do if I run out of food.
This is an actual phenomenon called collective trauma, and yeah it can do just that.
White people can now experience the tiniest fraction of what indigenous populations, Jewish communities, and people of color experience daily.
Yep. And the rest of us get to have a little extra trauma. As a treat.
I’ve already developed a fear of going outside. Like, I go out the door and it feels like a threat.
I would like to emphasize that because I am an essential employee, my schedule has not changed. (Okay, it’s changed a little. My shul is closed, so I’m home on Friday nights.) It’s all just a response to the news. And I know that, and I know coronavirus isn’t just floating through the air like malignant dandelion seeds, and I know I’m doing all the right things to keep myself and my coworkers safe–
–but it still feels dangerous to step outside.
And that’s after only two weeks.
What will it be like in six months?
being born in the late 90′s is a really weird time because our coming of age is/was so tied into the expansion of personal technology? like for so many of us the transition from getting your first flip phone to smartphones wasn’t just a technology shift, it was part of growing up. and it created this really weird timeline where new technologies were being created right as we entered the right age market to use them, so now we all know intuitively how to use snapchat or the social context of emoji use or whatever but we can also remember childhoods spent (almost) entirely outside and offline. like you get all the disillusionment of the older millennial generation except now with the stress of spending your adolescence measuring yourself against others on social media and it’s really fucking confusing
you put it into words
