"communism can't work, people are selfish."

Frankly, for whatever shortfalls Marx might have had as an anthropologist or psychologist, the story he gets to tell in response to this claim is an extremely compelling one: you can't be selfish on your own, you must be selfish in the framework of a society that allows you to be demonstrably selfish. What's your society like that allows you to be this way, and "allows" not in a permissive sense, but literally in a physically enabling way? What is it that you want? What is it that you can have too much of to someone else's detriment?

when i stopped thinking of myself in strictly "female" terms, my feminity became empowering rather than binding. like, i'm genderqueer cause i am, and when i call myself a woman anymore it doesn't feel like a contract i am signing my soul to. it feels like a descriptor i can take or leave whenever the fuck i want.

If your understanding of things is "this guy good this guy bad and they don't like each other" I think you've horrifically oversimplified everything

Idk I just think any kinda dichotomous "god and angels good/bad devil and demons bad/good" is kinda shit like

If someone said "Hello Mr Demon I am an Angel" I wouldn't like suddenly fly into a rage or some shit I'd just be like "Hi you have nice wings"

anyway yeah if you come on this federated network of webbed sites saying communism and nazism are the same i'm going to insult you and then ban you

Thinking that the God in the bible is actually evil and bad has existed for as long as the bible itself has lmao

Wait until Mr "Satanism is the first religion to say sin is good and God is bad" learns about like Sethianism or Cainitism or really just most of Gnosticism at all lmao

It'd be like going and saying "Mika is wrong about vampires" lmao

I always love when people try to claim something as demonic in some form and then get it totally absolutely abysmally fucking wrong

Like I'm a demon so I can tell immediately if you're full of shit on this lmao

Also they cited the fact that Songhai made up a primary branch of Nilo-Saharan

Y'know, the language family that white people made up so they could classify African languages more easily and lazily rather than accurately

Show thread

Thinking of the time someone proposed that the Songhai language was a creole formed by the mixing of languages from the spread of the Songhai empire and everyone else just went "lol no they weren't big or strong or notable enough to cause creolization to happen" because I guess only big aggressive western empires are capable of making new languages form??

Yes, just because you say you're descriptivist doesn't mean you're incapable of being horrendously racist

It's like saying "I can't be racist, I'm gay!"
