    [–] All you ridiculing the Green New Deal, when did America shy from tackling the 'impossible'? elistarling 4 points ago in politics

    This is false, fighting climate change is largely profitable in the long run. The energy solutions simply don’t allow for the same wealth consolidation that our present energy economy consists of, renewable energy is a democratizing force which is why there’s such pushback from the top. Check out Ceres.org if you want to learn more about the business case for sustainability.

    [–] You can't can't victimise yourself more than this lady here. elistarling 3 points ago in gatekeeping

    Check out the Harvard Implicit Bias test, I do believe that in one way or another, we’ve all been affected by the covert and overt racism that we witness throughout our lives, causing all of us to hold some form of implicit bias based on race. “All white people are racist” is a strong way to put it, because racist is such a strong term, but it’s important to be aware of the beliefs and experiences we’re subconsciously operating off of. I’m gay and a POC, and I know I have implicit bias against my own kind because of the way I was raised. Being conscious of it has helped me undo the things I have unwittingly internalized.

    [–] Can be trans but not child free elistarling 24 points ago in childfree

    I think it’s so great to hear a story about a FTM person and their choice to not have children! OP, this isn’t a criticism, but I noticed that in your post and a lot of the responses, there was rhetoric about how Wes “chose” to “become” a man, etc. If you want an ally tip, I’d encourage you to stay away from this type of language that implies that Wes or any other trans person “changed” their gender. Wes has always been a man, he was just born into a body that made people see him otherwise. When we say transition, it’s referencing the physical change that alleviates body and social dysphoria. Transitioning simply allows Wes be seen how he has always seen himself, his gender (which is an internal feeling) has always been male. It sounds like he has a very caring and empathetic friend in you, what a lucky guy!

    If you have time in your day, take a short boat ride to Burano. One of the coolest little islands, very colorful and festive.

    Why do you say that? Are you able to tell that from a picture? Her name is Sharice Davids, and yes, she is a lesbian.

    [–] Humanity 'Sleepwalking Towards the Edge of a Cliff': 60% of Earth's Wildlife Wiped Out Since 1970 elistarling 1 points ago in environment

    Capitalism has everything to do with climate change. Capitalism rewards those who need the demands of the consumer, and the consumers in first world countries demand an unsustainable and damaging amount of material goods. Capitalism ensures that oil and coal continue to be the lifeblood of our energy system, failing to account for what is actually beneficial to the people, which would be a swift transition to renewables. Renewables are not good for the oil companies bottom lines, and with capitalism, there is no power from the people to demand they make that transition, as our everyday lifestyle is dependent on an energy system that we lack influence over. Energy, telecom, and healthcare are our oligopolies that don’t bend to public will in the same way other industries to, because they’re so huge and necessary and they know it.
