Good people of Mastodon, I've been seeing a number of posts here that compare the Ayodhya judgment to a husband losing his wife to another man, treatment of rape victims etc. This is quite worrisome.
Women aren't property that one can win/lose claim over. Such comparisons reinforce the idea of ownership over women as passive objects. I have high hopes from this space and how we talk about women here.
So please do continue with the much-needed criticism, but please keep women out of it.
The society I rent a flat in has introduced this system of letting residents/guests/rental vehicles/food orders in or out through an app verification. Besides the sheer holier-than-thou nonsense that this gated community system is, the people living here don't realise they're volunteering their data, including name, number, time-tracked movements, car details to an unverified third party that does nothing guarantee that your data won't be misused. The lack of #digitalliteracy is appalling!
So here's what I going to do differently here. I am going to follow more people. Hear new and more voices. Listen. And not recommend anyone. Everyone is good and if you need to follow or hear someone, you will find them. You don't need me.
The climate crisis will make entire cities uninhabitable. Underground cities have long been sci-fi fodder, but now governments and planners are taking them seriously. One of the biggest challenges to overcome is convincing people to be comfortable underground
It's as good a time as any to read my #MythologyfortheMillennial column about Ganga, feisty goddess, baby-killer, Loch-Ness-Monster-Rider: https://www.firstpost.com/living/mythology-for-the-millennial-from-feisty-goddess-to-earthly-river-navigating-the-rich-lore-of-ganga-7597581.html
@gautamghosh good to hear pappas babysit too. I'd left the offspring c/o spouse too, his term exams on as well.
Resting bitch face is now permanent.
