My co-worker’s puppy fell asleep on her desk. Not much work got done that day

What the fuck
1. having the size, form, or characteristics of a tree; treelike.
2. a term used by the French thinkers Deleuze and Guattari to characterise thinking marked by insistence on totalising principles, binarism and dualism. The term, first used in A Thousand Plateaus (1980) where it was opposed to the rhizome, comes from the way genealogy trees are drawn: unidirectional progress, with no possible retroactivity and continuous binary cuts (thus enforcing a dualist metaphysical conception, criticised by Deleuze).
Etymology: from Latin arborēscēns, present active participle of arborēscō, “become a tree”.
There’s an outbreak of malaria.
Everyone takes the necessary precautions to avoid mosquitoes.
You’re outside, when a mosquito lands on your arm.
You raise your hand to it, ready to kill it.
Then it squeaks. Curious, you lower your ear to it.
You can just barely make out “Not all mosquitoes”.
Radfems wanna talk shit about how trans women are “socialized differently” from cis women. But non-white women are socialized differently from white women; Indigenous women are socialized differently from non-Indigenous women. Poor women are socialized differently from rich women. Women are socialized differently because they are raised in all kinds of environments with all kinds of privileges and disadvantages—it doesn’t negate their identity as a woman.
Like, you don’t get to fucking pick and choose whose gender identity is invalid because of a different upbringing. If I told a white woman that she isn’t a woman because she grew up white, cis, and rich, then these people would attack the fuck out of me. But they’re somehow allowed to decide that AMAB women aren’t women.
Ghandi Quotes You’ve Never Heard
The lack of communication and documentation allowed Ghandi to create a perfect self-image of himself. But the popular image of Ghandi is a myth. In reality, Ghandi was a fascist sympathizer, blatant racist and a homophobic bisexual.
Here are some quotes from the man himself:
While in South Africa: “We were then marched off to a prison intended for Kaffirs [offensive term equivalent to the n-word]. We could understand not being classed with whites, but to be placed on the same level as the Natives seemed too much to put up with. Kaffirs are as a rule uncivilized — the convicts even more so. They are troublesome, very dirty and live like animals."
“We believe as much in the purity of race as we think they do… We believe also that the white race of South Africa should be the predominating race.” — Vol. 3, p. 256
Feb. 15, 1904: “Under my suggestion, the Town Council must withdraw the Kaffirs from the Location. About this mixing of the Kaffirs with the Indians, I must confess I feel most strongly. I think it is very unfair to the Indian population.” — Vol. 3, p. 429
To the British during WWII: “This manslaughter must be stopped. You are losing; if you persist, it will only result in greater bloodshed. Hitler is not a bad man.”
1946: “Hitler killed five million Jews. It is the greatest crime of our time. But the Jews should have offered themselves to the butcher’s knife. They should have thrown themselves into the sea from cliffs… It would have aroused the world and the people of Germany… As it is they succumbed anyway in their millions.”
Gandhi believed this act of “collective suicide”, in response to the Holocaust, “would have been heroism”.
ah ghandi, you truly were a piece of shit.
piece of shit indeed
if youre in a heterosexual relationship like who gets to be the woman and who gets to be the other woman?
