Celebrating Kallynteria & Plynteria by throwing away my whole existence UWU
K&P is a two part festival where Athena’s temple was cleaned and her statue was washed.
Anyways I don’t have a life-size Athena statue nor a temple for her but I’ll be doing some massive cleaning physically, mentally, & spiritually. I do have sea water so I can probably wash the owl I bought for Athena lol. There’s no specific day when it ends but I’ll conclude the festival at the end of the 31st.
The story behind this is that the Ecuadorean government tried to sell Amazon lands to oil companies for drilling. The Waorani, who live on those lands, took them to court over it, and they won.
The ruling "has created a significant precedent for the Amazon," said Lina Maria Espinosa, attorney for the plaintiffs, outside court.
"It has been demonstrated that there was no consultation and that the state violated the rights of this people, and therefore of other peoples."
I wrote this about self-diagnosis after I saw a hateful post about it on my Witchy tumblr feed.
Respect self-diagnosed people, talk with them, be kinder and learn about it instead of spreading hate that doesn't help anyone.
I explain this better here:
If you live in the capitalistic hellscape that is America and need insulin or know someone who needs it, here's a lifesaving link to a manufacturer's coupon that can bring the price of insulin to $0.
It's Transgender Day of Visibility and also World Backup Day today. Both are about resilience to that which would erase and reminding us not to lose sight of what's important and precious to us. I'm not entirely sure where I'm going with this toot but if you're transgender and/or backing your shit up you're doing great
Godddd stop spreading the propaganda that entry-level retail workers are punished for other people's shoplifting. They aren't! I've worked retail for 4 years at 5 different places (Walgreens, Target - at 2 locations, Sam's, and 2 local places) and have never heard of this happening. Shrinkage is considered part of expenses, entry-level employees aren't expected to stop shoplifting (and are more often explicitly told not to), and this is definitely against company policy at any big chain
I'm sure it does happen under the table or at small businesses, but people talk about it like it's guaranteed every time you nick a drink. It's fucking not, and by saying this every single time someone talks about theft you're doing exactly what the capitalists - including the ones who enact this policy - want. They're holding workers hostage and you're giving in to their demands
