Gonna post another intro post, seeing as this is becoming a thing again?

I'm Derek! 23/they/~~the Lower Mainland~~.

πŸ’™: being a gay dragon, good food, prog rock, communism, disco, beer, public transit, snow, decolonial/anti-imperialist politics, jazz, linguistics, art, somehow holding onto hope for the future, being gay.
πŸ’”: heterocisnormativity, fascism, pretentiousness, oppressive structures, car-oriented development, bigotry, Western chauvinism, body shaming, edginess.

Quick question: can you still post on an account that you've set to redirect to a new account?

(BTW, that new account is @kd !)

If anyone's got room for one more person in their room at MFF, please, let me know! I'm friendly, not too loud or anything, and I'll bring along ~~Canadian snacks~~ for you. (Boosts encouraged!) #mff2018 #furfest2018 #furfest

(Except for trenta cups at Starbucks, but those don't even try to fit in the standard cup holder size, I don't think.)

American fast food drink cups, which change angle throughout their height to fit inside cup holders... seem weird to me? We don't have any cups which are so huge that they can't just use the same angle from top to bottom.

I decided that I really need to set that post to followers only before I actually hit the post button... but after my brain sent the signal to my finger to click the button.

Wow.

Politics; war; sanctions. 

So I'm at a talk about US interventions in the Middle East, and…

Yeah, I seriously suspect that the US is angling at dragging the world into WWIII, on multiple fronts.

Seth Rogen is telling us to move to the back of the bus, wow.

Politics; death. 

And, like, "rehabilitation" is extremely broad. There's a million ways to do it, and the question of *how* we do it is a discussion we need to get deeper into, IMO.

Execution: they can literally never do anything ever again, period.
Rehabilitation: they're substantially restricted in what they can do for a certain period of time, but the only possibilities you're permanently taking away from them are "being a reactionary", "fucking over the people around you", and "promoting reactionary politics". There's a lot of stuff you can do in life other than those things.

I still have yet to see any explanation, period, of how summarily killing one's political opponents is less of an imposition of authority than rehabilitating them such that they no longer pose a danger to humanity.

Like, killing someone is the immediate, permanent, irreversible revocation of any agency that they will ever have β€” seems like more of a deprivation of rights than… just forcing them to stop being a reactionary.
