neoliberal conceptions of health emphasize 'avoidable'/'optional'/'elective' sources of harm or risk, no matter their magnitude, over unavoidable, mandatory, pervasive sources of harm or risk, no matter their magnitude. the public health ills of pollution, overwork, economic precarity, and healthcare profiteering are immense, but not reducible to moral failures on the part of the ill!
So these inconveniently-structural factors of known significance are ignored, in favor of petty 'sins' like recreational/addictive drug use, 'poor diet' (which is badly, diversely, and ubiquitously theorized, in the total absence of compelling data), lifestyle activity level, or fatness.
image captions Show more
@maloki The web interface for adding image captions needs some work. It's difficult to add longer (useful) ones for some images and you're having to describe the image from the tiniest little thumbnail after it's been uploaded.
Would be nice to have a big pop-up after clicking the caption button that beings a light box up with a nice big image and text entry box.
Perhaps even a polite nudge/cue/bigger button to add captions somehow if media is attached without captions
Etiquette Show more
Before jumping into someone else's mentions:
✅ Am I being contrarian?
✅ Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
✅ Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
✅ Am I derailing another legitimate discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person in my knowledge of social issues?
✅ Am I saying "Are you surprised?" when they're disappointed?
✅ Am I providing unsolicited advice?

Tattoos, tans and techno: the photographers capturing the unseen Queer Beirut
In case you’re thinking about joining the Deep Adaption forum too (the one that matters, on Ning), be aware they have very specific and firmly enforced guidelines.
Ampersand gets its name from the fact that it used to be included at the end of the alphabet. So you'd be reciting it and go:
"x, y, z and per se &", i.e. "x, y, z and by itself & (and)"
The per se would make it clear when you were spelling that you were saying a one letter word and not just the letter.
So the character & used to just be called "and" until the "and per se" elided away into "ampersand"

TheSuper8.bandcamp.com is gone.
They released these songs as antifascist action: it's our responsibility to share them.
If you DM me I'll share the magnet link. Download. Seed. Put it on your website. Upload it to YouTube. Livestream it on Facebook. Share it forward.
Solarpunk, but mildly dystopian: in the future, all recorded music is second-hand vinyl records played on antique, hand-cranked phonographs. No new records are produced, so recorded music is "carbon neutral," but the old records are starting to wear out and a lot of old music is disappearing as a result. The old classics are kept alive through live performances, as always, but archivists are worried that much of humanity's musical history is being lost.
Canada conversion therapy petition Show more
LGBTQ children in Canada can still be forced to undergo conversion therapy.
The impact on conversion therapy survivors is deeply harmful: they struggle with their identities, feel a deep sense of shame about who they are, and even experience suicidal thoughts.
