Why did I come back here? To see if it was any different? To hear what rumors about me spread? I really don't know. I think the pH of where I planted myself in the Fediverse is still too low for me
Why do I still feel guilt and shame when strangers tell me I'm not doing enough?
I help people out when my cash would mean more to them than it would to me. I teach disadvantaged people how to defend themselves for free. I'm always here to give advice on how to make your organization more fair and equitable.
I really do get a lot of my time eaten up by just trying to survive and pay my bills. I got a house, a car, a bunch of loans, and I'm still not done with my dental restoration work. I have one major relationship that suffers from how absent I am.
It's just all so far removed from my day-to-day life, you know? I stay reasonably well connected on politics and social issues. I continue calibrating my actual beliefs and stances based on evidence and ideas. I want the world to be a better place. I pitch in where I can. But I make about the same amount of difference whether or not I expose myself to this tiny collection of people who will violently and vindictive disagree with me. They mean dick to me. So why do I do it?
#introductions hey, it's me again. I'm a bisexual syncretic leftist in a bald middle-aged tech bro's body. I like transgressive art, music, and people to talk leftpol with. recommend me some people to follow.
