4yo: "I like the Baha Men picture because it's like a little doggy with glasses and a Spongebob-like background"

Which is so weird to think about that it wasn't that long ago. I mean I've been here since 2010 and I've got way more stories but something about like 2013-2014 is filled with gold- like the shittiest most awful infighting gold.

And on a somewhat related note I feel old when I talk about the lefty flame wars of '14 with ppl who are newer to organizing in my town. "Oh yes, pull up a chair, let me tell you a tale of burritos, TERFs and the conference that would soon cease to be..."

I so badly want more inter-generational community. I remember in 2017 I was taking a class with a woman I totally had pegged as a liberal (very kind lady- quilted me a baby blanket when I was pregnant), and she told me she was a "red diaper baby" and I had never heard that term before that day. My kid was like one and a half and my community of parent comrades was small at the time. It was cool to feel more tangibly historically connected to something, I often wish for more of that.

I was worried I'd miss Facebook for all the shitposts but shitposting here is even better. No ads, no data mining, even part of a rad coop now. Finally a place my brain can scroll for dopamine hits with some ETHICS.

Keep thinking about how a few weeks ago my grandma was telling me not to make my kid too scared of cops in case they need to call them one day and how foreign the idea was to her that I wanted to raise my child to see a problem and assess for themself how they might address it- either by taking their own action or by calling up comrades to figure something out together. She actually ended up agreeing but it made me think how people can live whole lives happily handing away their own agency.

Watching Diary of a Wimpy Kid with my 4yo and the parents are playing Wannabe by the Spice Girls as a device to illustrate how old and out of touch they are ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ the spice girls were my first concert when I was like 7 and I just turned 30 a couple days ago. I have mixed feelings.

Hi! My name is Cam (they/them)! I am a full time parent and passionate about transformative justice and legitimizing domestic work as real work. I was on a different instance but decided to sign up for this one because I love co-ops and this seems like a rad and active community. What stood out is that you have a conflict engagement protocol- I've found that many communities don't consider this until it's too late and obvi that is important to me as TJ is a central value of mine.
