I survived the year-or-so long zombie invasion in #dwarffortress. I built traps behind the main gate, then let them in a few at a time, using the military to polish them off. Aftermath recovery is taking months - they were all armed and armoured, plus they massacred a year's worth of visitors. And being zombies they dropped off parts as they fought and died. Just chucking the various dead bits into the lava has kept the whole forst busy for a couple of seasons so far.
"Divisive rhetoric" discourse
When people are like, "You can't say that because it's divisive, I'm white/cis/male/straight and I never did anything to you", what you're doing is taking an expression of frustration or anger about systemic oppression and making it about soothing your own feelings.
With the added implicit threat that if someone continues with this behavior, that you will revoke your solidarity with them.
Which, in turn, means that your support is conditional on the behavior of the other party. It's a way to exercise control over how people talk about oppression by centering it around the oppressor class.
Things that make me happy ...
This past weekend, my #sca household expanded a bit ...

I've been fighting in the #sca for over thirty years, with some success. This week, for the first time, I made a shield.
I can't remember who I saw post this yesterday but I think it's a really interesting idea; and something that's worth taking into consideration. I think becoming a 'dark forest' is kinda necessary in some ways; but that we still need outreach and bridges to pull people across from the major social networks etc.
@yann brought my new coronet with him this past weekend. Let the wails of envy commence ....
New: Washington has become the first U.S. state to legalize a type of human burial called recomposition — sometimes known as body composting. (@KUOW)
Run for office y'all. You don't need to be anything. You don't need to be some kinda special 1 of a kind maverick or whatever. You'll have staff and a legal team to help you out with whatever you're unsure of. We have elected officials in congress RIGHT THE FUCK NOW who think
-babies grow in our stomachs
-carbon monoxide is good for us
-periods happen at will
-A biblical war between Muslims and Jews will bring Jesus Christ back.
-That a Nuclear Winter is no bfd.
You're fine, you're qualified.
