"I have no problem understanding that women are interested in mascara and the Middle East. Men are allowed to talk about sports relentlessly, and yet we still take them seriously. I don’t understand why women can’t talk about fashion, or sex, or love, or wanting more money and not be taken as seriously as men."

"Stupid furless humans can’t take care of their kitten, I have to do everything myself."
My favourite thing is baby sitting up thinking “What the fuck is that?” Then seeing the cat, thinks “Very well, continue.”
Stupid furless humans.
THE TRUTH OF NATIVE AMERICANS BEFORE THE GENOCIDE
Gotta put this on blast.
We never needed a white savior.
I hate this country.
What I learned from this video:
- 100 million Native Americans died at the hands of white colonists
- Instead of planting crops the colonists spent their days digging random holes in the ground looking for gold. They started starving and dug up Indian corpses to eat. They took Indian prisoners and forced them to teach the colonists how to farm
- Native Americans had massive cities with tens of thousands of well constructed houses, intricate water canals and large merchant areas.
- The Native Americans used soaps, deodorants and breath sweeteners while colonists never bathed or even took of their clothes
- There was a delousing policy with the mantra Nits create Lice; nits being Native American babies, so their goal was to kill every Indian, including babies
- In the 1700’s 80% of the Federal Budget went towards eradicating the Native American population so they could take their developed farmland
- Colonists leaders went town after town killing men women and children under the approval of George Washington
- "Pursue Indians to extermination" -Thomas Jefferson
- California governor (1849-1851): “extermination must continue to be waged until the Indian becomes extinct”
The main factor which prevented Native American extinction was the fact they were used for slave labor. The most prized Native Americans were young girls who were said to be valued for labor and lust (that one white dude in your ethnic studies class that says he’s 1/36th Cherokee?)
In modern times children were forced into Indian Boarding Schools whose goal was to “Kill the Indian in them”. It was federal policy. They were beaten if they used their native tongue, they were forced to dress and style their hair like whites
This country was literally built on terrorism and mass murder. White people are savage terrorists.
Until, this is taught in schools everywhere- “history class” is merely a racism propaganda course.
Things to marinate on this “holiday” weekend

"You don’t know anyone at the party, so you don’t want to go. You don’t like cottage cheese, so you haven’t eaten it in years. This is your choice, of course, but don’t kid yourself: it’s also the flinch. Your personality is not set in stone. You may think a morning coffee is the most enjoyable thing in the world, but it’s really just a habit. Thirty days without it, and you would be fine. You think you have a soul mate, but in fact you could have had any number of spouses. You would have evolved differently, but been just as happy.
You can change what you want about yourself at any time. You see yourself as someone who can’t write or play an instrument, who gives in to temptation or makes bad decisions, but that’s really not you. It’s not ingrained. It’s not your personality. Your personality is something else, something deeper than just preferences, and these details on the surface, you can change anytime you like.
If it is useful to do so, you must abandon your identity and start again. Sometimes, it’s the only way.
Set fire to your old self. It’s not needed here. It’s too busy shopping, gossiping about others, and watching days go by and asking why you haven’t gotten as far as you’d like. This old self will die and be forgotten by all but family, and replaced by someone who makes a difference.
Your new self is not like that. Your new self is the Great Chicago Fire—overwhelming, overpowering, and destroying everything that isn’t necessary."
Hi Biodivseed, have you been following the debate about a 'TTIP' between the USA and EU? Whereas concerns from Supermiljöbloggen and others, point towards a higher control with seeds/biomaterial. Plainly it may include laws against "uncertified" (read: none corporate) biomaterials. (sorry for badly formulated English.)
Du kan godt skriver på svensk hvis det er nemmere! Jeg kan også skrive lidt på dansk, hvis du kan læse det. Men nu vil jeg svare på engelsk:
I send very small packages of seed around the world, and I always make sure I am not shipping invasive species, soil, or fungal hitchhikers. I’m careful and responsible. My packages haven’t been stopped yet, partially because I think they are camouflaged in normal mail.
However, what I’m doing is illegal in the EU.
The effect these agreements have is allowing corporations to ship invasive and non-diverse seed stock with impunity, and lobby to restrict private individuals from selling or swapping their legally-obtained plant materials. It’s ridiculous: around 50% of the world’s seed supply is controlled by three multinationals, and around 70% of it is controlled by 10. I think this has catastrophic implications for biodiversity and food sovereignty. It’s like we’re begging for genetic bottlenecks in our food supply. Agribusiness giants have a huge lobbying force that attempts to patent and make purchaseable things that were formerly in the commons.
It costs between $50 to $300 for a private individual to get a phytosanitary certificate, every time, for every plant. Corporations can get a blanket phytosanitary approval.
Being in the immigration system, I am not legally allowed to start a business. I would if I could to make things easier, but there is no making money in being a small-scale, responsible seed supplier: up against agribusiness giants you will always be running a deficit, and jumping through regulatory hoops that are designed to keep competition against these companies at a minimum.
These trade agreements exacerbate that, because there are always articles hidden in the fine print that protect corporate interests. If you’re a 20-something immigrant swapping free seeds on the internet (like me) there is no legal recourse or lobby for your interests. I want to give stuff away for free, or for next to nothing, but that doesn’t produce wealth for anyone but me and the person I am swapping with, so it has to be regulated out of existence.
"Women are emotional in order to feel the divine energy at the highest levels and be supreme healers and lovers and mothers. Not to drive men insane. Her deep spiritual connection to feelings is to inspire a man to his spiritual heights as well. She is not a nag, she is an oracle."

The worst is when I give a little boy a pink spoon (or he even ASKS for a pink spoon!) and his mom and dad glare at me as if I’m Satan himself trying to corrupt their kid with a fucking colored disposable spoon.
