A libertarian friend of mine said that exposing large sum donors would limit the ability of rich donors to contribute to controversial causes that I approve of…
Its almost like I don’t want ANY large donations to any political causes… #Shocking
The BBC choosing to not expose the racism of the tories, as well as its proud promotion of transphobia, Reminds me of Nick Griffin’s speech “Once we're in a position where we control the British broadcasting media, then perhaps one day the British people might change their mind and say, “yes, every last one must go”
@aldroid Ever since I realised this, I’ve been going round seeing people talking about means testing looking like this (I do have to remember that most of them don’t realise they’re also victims of the con)

PIP assessments similarly save no money.
Making people give up (and die) is the point.

@aral I’m old enough to remeber when hp would sell you a physical server with extra power that you could turn on when needed (for a few)
@witchy I’m sure that an organisation that seems to exist to facilitate the rape of children has no vested interest in guilting people into producing more victims….
@aral oh absolutely !
Yup I’m doing pretty good I think, still a bit of a chaos demon in a trench coat but it works :)
“Saying cis bodies are weird” on a post talking about the minefield of dating while trans, and asking in reflection whether cis people should have to disclose before meeting…
