Honestly, and please take this with a grain of salt, this reads as you being autistic. You said you were bad with social cues, and I personally find it harder to “clock” other people as autistic unless I’m trying too.

I think that part of it, for me at least, was that it felt like everything shifted and all of a sudden my brain was finally running right for the first time in my life. It’s like it was already wired to run on estrogen and I was finally giving it what it needed.

Even if it’s not now, that’s how the first impression was and it’s going to stick forever.

I agree with them on this.

Same here. I agonised way longer over whether I was allowed to be a gay girl than I did over just being a girl at all.

They say 3.4% of greenhouse gas emissions from plastics which is nothing. We do need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by like 80% but not to 0.

Personally I’d rather save that last 20% for important things like being able to escape earth’s gravity well, rather than dumb shit like single-use plastics. Maybe that’s just me ¯_(ツ)_/¯

That’s a really poor way to describe it. I don’t have superhuman vision, but I do have photosensitivity to the point I feel blinded in bright sunlight without eye protection. I don’t have superhuman hearing, but I will lay awake at night due to the buzzing sound of a transformer that other people swear they can’t hear, because I have limited ability to filter out sounds. My senses aren’t better than a neurotypical person’s, they’re just constantly heightened. My dark vision is a lot better than most people’s though, so it’s not all bad I guess.

If you have any sensory issues with sunscreen, I highly recommend the Neutrogena Ultrasheer range. I can’t stand the thick, greasy feeling. They have a spray-on that’s great for re-applying in the middle of the day.

There are 2,310 male billionaires. There are just 337 female billionaires. Considering she’s only worth $1.1 billion, I’d dare say that a significant number of those men have a higher net worth. But instead of seeing any posts criticising any of them lately (except Musk & Bezos), I’ve seen one of the minority of women targeted repeatedly. One that, for the most part, isn’t actively harming the world.

Like hell, if you want to be critical of a female billionaire, let me introduce to you Australia’s richest person: Gina Rinehart.. She owns a mining empire, is racist as fuck and tried to swindle her children out of their inheritance from her father. Oh, but as she tells it, she’s not an heiress. Her mining company has destroyed countless indigenous cultural sites. She is a massive cunt.

Like, I’m sorry, but I just don’t buy the whole “all billionaires are equally evil” bullshit. There are far far worse people that we should be spending this energy on.

Just Discovery, but not Strange New Worlds? I’m intrigued now…

I think most laptop’s still have the option of whether to boot or not when you plug them in with a dead battery.

I’m not even a Swift fan, and yeah I get that she is ultimately still a billionaire. But she played on Friday in my home city of Melbourne, and that day she donated $100k to a local food bank system. I know that’s still a drop in the bucket for her, but that’s not chump change.

However, if you do some searching, there’s a stream of news stories of her donating large amount like that or more. The day before her first Melbourne concert, she donated $100k to the family of the woman killed at the super bowl parade. Two months ago she donated $1 million to a relief fund for tennessee tornado victims. Heaps more food bank donations.

Like, can we seriously just leave her the fuck alone? Musk is an alt-right piece of shit, she’s just a talented musician that actually works for a living. And yeah, I know she doesn’t work as much as some of the rest of us, but stadium touring is still brutal. Musk just sits on his arse all day tweeting and committing labour violations.

She’s also not the child of an emerald mine owner so there’s that too.

100k to a billionaire is no more than a tip.

Yeah, like I already said in my comment, it’s a drop in the bucket for her. But she’s doing it over and over again. Twice this week she donated $100k. It adds up over time. Dolly Parton is worth $650 million, and she also donates significant sums of that to her book charity. They’re both trying reasonably hard to make the world suck less. Musk is actively creating more suffering. Can we not talk about them like they’re the same level of evil? What good does that bring?

You are 100% correct that many billionaires do that. As cogman mentioned above, having a “charity” that you run yourself as a billionaire is absolutely a common tax scam. That’s not what she’s doing though. She’s actually spending the money.

Also in terms of marketing, like, are you serious? Her music speaks for itself to her fans, they don’t care about any of this. My words here aren’t going to influence someone to go listen to her music or buy a concert ticket. To believe that they could is simply ludicrous.

princessnorah,

You donate and you pay less tax

As a US citizen, she is only allowed to claim donations to charities registered in the US. The $100k she just dropped in Melbourne, Australia wouldn’t be eligible for example. Therefore it’s not free PR, she actually paid about $100k for it.

Cool. I acknowledged that way further up thread. That doesn’t mean you aren’t wrong friend.

Pretty much everywhere with fibre in Australia has had the copper ripped up. You can still get a landline over the fibre network, there’s just a RJ11 port on the network termination device. You can even run a cable from it to one of the old wall jacks and every other one in the house will work. Plug any old landline phone in just fine.

It kinda reads like she’s gonna beat you upside the head so she can win the case easier or something…

Cross-posting my comment from the other thread here because people should watch this video:

The only person at the senate inquiry into this that had any balls was Greens Senator David Shoebridge. Got his mic cut off for politely telling a cop to basically go fuck himself.

This is why I always put the Greens first on my ballot, in both state & federal and for both upper & lower houses. They’re the only viable leftist party in Australia imo.

Not saying I don’t believe you at all, but would love to read about this if you have a source?
