introduction post, long 

Hey there folks, figure I might as well chuck something out there on public as an intro post.

My name is Alexis, im postfurry stripeyeen weirdo, and I'm bailing from a sinking-ship instance y'all've probably heard of by now after spending a little over two years there.

I was taught to lurk before posting, and I don't want or need mass attention, so you probably won't see anything else on local or federated from me. I'm just here to have a social-media den I trust to keep up on the world through.

If you have any concerns over anything I have posted in the past or anything I post in the future, or over the people I have been or currently am in contact with, please do not hesitate to contact me and/or report it as you see fit. My early internet life was spent on the SomethingAwful forums, back when it was still possible to get free accounts, and then early 4chan before my friends dragged me out of that spiral by the scruff. On top of that, I come from a history of generational abuse on both sides of my family tree. I know my IFF systems are busted and glitchy as hell, all I ask is to be gentle if I step over any lines - I cannot alter my own settings without knowing what needs to be altered, after all.

That said?

Glad to be here. :trans_heart::heart_nb::anarchy:

trans girl face shaving tip:
oldschool safety razors. The kind with a straight metal handle and single disposable blades.

(not to be confused with straight razors, which are scary af.)

They get about a day closer shave than cartridge razors, and imo are a lot more comfortable -- there's multiple blade types available and folks tend to have individual preferences. A big benefit is that the product doesn't come in gender-colored molded plastic. Running costs are also lower.

Zack Snyder being a shitlord, sexual assault in film 

Snyder's remake of Dawn of the Dead is something I loathe deeply for how much it disregards the source material in favor of mean-spirited and edgelordy bullshit, and I'm not surprised it's was extrapolated into zombie rape at one point. cinemablend.com/new/Details-Za

cops behaving badly (Houston TX, houseless targeting), death while in jail, twitter thread link 

twitter.com/equalityAlec/statu

"THREAD: A 57-year-old houseless man named Israel Iglesias just died in the Houston jail on a $1,500 money bond. What happened to him is important, and it will make your blood boil."

What happened to Mr. Iglesias, in short, is that undercover cops gave him money and asked him to get them some meth. They say he got them 0.6 grams from another houseless man.

*Four months later* the cops arrested him for it, and the DA's office decided to press charges against *the houseless man with no money.* The judge required him to pay $1,500 cash. If he could pay 10% (or $150) to a for-profit bail company, he could get out. He couldn’t, what with *not having any money,* and has subsequently died in custody - I do not know his cause of death and I do not have the energy to go looking.

Just as the Texas blackouts were paydays for energy companies that profit from misery, the pandemic is a gold-rush for the #bossware companies that spy on workers required to convert their homes to rent-free office space to their employers.

pluralistic.net/2020/07/01/bos

Bossware's origins are Taylorism, the time-motion/scientific management fad of the late 19th century, when charlatans dressed up in science-coats and micromanaged skilled tradespeople with humiliatingly detailed proscriptions.

Lol the air force is going like "uhhhhh the F-35 is way too expensive and impossible to maintain, can someone make us a less overbuilt jet pls"

Turns out, when the program started way back in the 90s the F-35 was supposed to be that less overbuilt jet.

Chicago political meta, carjacking adjacent, video games as scapegoat, ABC7 Chicago article (autoplay video) 

abc7chicago.com/chicago-carjac

"An Illinois lawmaker has a new response to the recent surge in carjackings around the Chicago area -- banning a popular video game.

State Rep. Marcus Evans said during a press conference Monday morning in south suburban Olympia Fields that video games are contributing to the carjacking surge across the area.

"Grand Theft Auto," which had its first installment released back in 1997, is the main issue, he said.

Evans said he plans to introduce a bill to ban sales of the game in Illinois.

"'Grand Theft Auto' and other violent video games are getting in the minds of our young people and perpetuating the normalcy of carjacking," Evans said. "Carjacking is not normal and carjacking must stop.""

Fucking... Welcome back to the 90s, I GUESS.

(also, according to a local friend, Olympia Fields is a rich white neighborhood, soooo...)

CA pol, capitalism, temporary minimum wage hike 

So, San Leandro's joining Oakland in raising grocery workers' minimum wage (for stores with >300 people statewide) by $5/hr as covid-19 hazard pay. Not a huge reward for putting one's life on the line, but a good step.

The California Grocers Association:

"if grocers must reduce operating costs because of the pay increases, workers’ hours would get cut by 22 percent.
The association also cited research showing grocery prices could go up by $400 yearly for a family of four due to the higher wages."

Reality:

"13 of the nation’s top retail companies, including grocery stores, recorded windfall profits in 2020. The research found that Albertsons, which owns Safeway stores, saw 55 percent profit growth in a two-quarter reporting period as compared to the previous year."
