Ok I'm late to #introductions
My name's andrew (he or they), 27 years old. I've been on the internet for a very long time.
I like to talk about science fiction stories, vintage computers, leftist politics and goofposting.
I like old computers and game systems but will keep the technical talk on a different account. Someday I'm going to learn how to program.

Same, the JV fb coach would keep trying to hang out w me at the bus stop n make comments abt my legs. We heard abt him taking a freshman to his office alone to ‘talk abt her relationship problems.’ We all knew to stay clear of him and this man did not need the added intimidation of having a gun.

A big problem with the way history is taught is that we aren't taught the full context of just how awful life was back then. We're (Sweden here) taught the names and lives of an awful lot of kings and how much they murdered people but we never get the perspective of serfs and tradespeople. They don't matter, because workers don't matter to this day.
Make education leftist, make people understand the class struggle that goes on to this day. Teach kids to draw parallels between oppression back then and oppression now.
