reminder for everybody having trouble waking up: go browse
that intense, desperate feeling you have of tearing yourself apart from the bed? that’s not laziness. that’s your body reminding you that capitalism is killing you
👉🏾👉🏾Podemos ha votado junto a VOX en contra de que la monarquía pase cuentas de sus negocios con los absolutistas saudíes. ¡Que pena más grande!
Lo grandes q hubieras podido ser y mira en que os habéis convertido... En esa sucia CASTA que tanto criticabáis. https://t.co/zUEVCJeCnD
homophobia, british soap opera
hoooly shit this is amazingly awful, I'm laughing because I don't know how to process this.
This is a scene from an episode released yesterday and it's like some 20th century nonsense. The emphasis of this coming out scene is ENTIRELY on what this kid's cishet dad thinks about queerness. And Danny Dyer handles it with an incredulously insincere performance.
This is a microcosm of how cishets see themselves in relation to queer people, it fucking nails the difficulty of coming out but not at all in the way that it thinks.
Fuck me, I don't know how to process this melodramatic tosh
@skrlet13 ugh, let's not. online is one of the few places where people are allowed to be openly poor
@luna unfortunately i can't imagine how we'll reclaim much of anything without some sort of collapse weakening the current system
@luna sadly i can't imagine how one happens without the other (as usual, easier to imagine the end of the world than the end of capitalism)
@luna does it not? i find that "peak oil" discourse often goes all the way to "when we run out of oil we'll go back to throwing rocks at each other like we were meant to" and that's not what i want to believe in i don't think

heads-up for UK people with overdrafts
So, the UK financial regulator tried to simplify the way banks charge people for overdrafts and make it fairer. No more daily fees, no more punitive fees for unarranged overdrafts. Just one clearly advertised interest rate for all overdrafts. The changes happen in April.
BUT, because banks are bastards, they are almost all planning to set that rate at around 40%. If your account spends most of its time overdrawn, this will really affect you.
The Money Saving Expert blog has a guide to who's announced which rate and also info about possible options for switching bank and getting a bit of respite that way. If you're permanently overdrawn, it's really worth doing something before April.
