I hate this so much. Democrats and their fucking rule-following horseshit. Also Tim Faust is right.
I need like a therapist, only rather than helping me understand my problems, I've already got most of that sussed out, so someone who's job it is to help people figure out how to solve them, and then actually help solve them when the person can't do it themself.
It's the main reason why I don't go to therapists. I've had 2 in the past and I learned a little bit, but now I can just figure out what my problems are and their causes myself. I just can't solve any of them rip.

yo, i read an article about the psychiatric field that someone here linked months and months ago, and i'm trying to find it again? it was basically about how psychiatry (and capitalism in general) preys on the idea that struggles are caused by personal flaws instead of societal shortcomings and pointed out how many popular psychiatry related theories have been completely disproved but are still widely upheld. does anyone have any idea what it might have been??

Is there a #coop that provides VPN with Low latency to the Oakland fiber network?
My Ideal network topography let’s me VPN to my home office server, but I would rather pay a coop to manage the uptime than maintain the uptime myself.

I signed up for fungi cultivation class. I got the last spot before it closed!
I told my partner and she was all,
"ooh I want to take that with you!"
"Sorry, it's all full. I guess there wasn't mushroom left."

Today, I want men to think about how they comfort each other when they learn that one of their bredrens is going through something. Often, what some men in our lives truly need is another man to talk things through with.
The Open in Terminal and .localrc bits deserves some explanation: I have bash configured with a custom shell function that runs from .bashrc. It looks at the current directory for a file named `.localrc` when bash is first loaded and if found imports it, then recursively climbs the directory tree doing the same until it reaches $HOME.
Since I use `~/Projects/$ORG/$PROJECT as my directory layout`, this gives me per-project custom shell environments.
politics and the definition of being a kid in modern society Show more
the idea of childhood being a burdensome, selfish, and disruptive stage of life is actually shitty capitalist/fascist propaganda trying to convince us that kids are bad because they do what they wanna do, feel what they wanna feel, say what they wanna say, and value fun and comfort and personal agency over productivity and servitude
