  4. Condemned…or this day of mine

    Had our yearly gas safety check. And *everything* failed. 

    The cooker failed, the boiler failed (and is apparently pumping out horrid stuff outside whenever we use the hot water - right under my lodger’s window and into the kids play area. And if there was further wear it would start pumping into the kitchen/house) and also the emergency value on the boiler has been installed upside down which is illegal (that boiler has been there since before we’ve moved in almost 6 years ago…), and the pipes to the gas meter in the cellar are not attached properly (last year it was found one of the ones outside pipes wasn’t attached properly but those were fixed - apparently the ones downstairs were missed as they are fastened in the same very unsafe way). also got told it was good that the takeaway moved last week as their out take vent is unclean, greasy, unsafe fire hazard, especially with out boiler leakage so close to it. 

    As a result, our gas has been turned off completely and big “condemned do not use” stickers are on those things. So no hot water, no cooking with the cooker or hobs, and my house and garden feels like a death trap. I’m more eager to move out of my gentrified hell hole than ever (seriously, the only things I will slightly miss is having a lovely corner shop and a post box practically on my doorstep, and I can find another house near a corner shop and/or a postbox). My goal is to be out before my eldest is secondary age in case he wants to go to school (I on’t send him to school around here, just going to the park near the school is uncomfortable to me with the UKIP/BNP types regularly ruining my day). 

    We’ve been here almost 6 years, had these checks each year, and it’s starting to feel like all those passes were by people not paying attention (the illegal upside down emergency valve has been here the whole time). I can forgive last year’s person because he was kinda freaked out by our gas pipe outside (I thought it was a water out pipe as it is which why the odd/loose angle hadn’t concerned me until gasman told me that was a gas pipe) and was focused on fixing that but all the other complete passes…and as my meters have been checked repeatedly this year due to our complaints about our former energy company, I’m wondering how many people missed that ticking bomb. 

    So I’m uncomfortable and planning to have takeaway. My lodger had bought us a microwave on sale last week that we haven’t put in yet as well which is great timing for a horrible events.

    next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights

    Cassetteboy - Cameron’s Conference Rap.

    Amazing, and a little depressing because it’s all true.

    I was just about to post this.

    Cassetteboy has got really, REALLY good at this.

    Cassetteboy is my favourite superhero.

    "The MOGAI rights movement was started by a trans woman of color"

    Yes, this is important; but there were multiple trans women of color at the head of the movement, beginning with the Stonewall Riots.

    Spread their names. They need to be in the history books and they needto be a part of MOGAI “Ally 101”

    Sylvia Rivera was a bisexual trans woman of Puerto Rican and Venezuelan decent. She started protesting against the Vietnam War and was a proponent for the feminist rights movement, as well as the MOGAI rights movement

    There is now a group dedicated to her called the Sylvia Rivera Law Project, working to “guarantee that all people are free to self-determine gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination or violence.” They offer volunteer opportunities and legal help for trans, gender non-conforming (non binary) and intersex people; especially those of color and/or low income.

    Another MVP of the MOGAI rights movement was Marsha P. Johnson, a black trans woman; who along with Sylvia Rivera founded S.T.A.R (Street Action Transvestite Revolutionaries; later renamed Street Action Transgender Revolutionaries), which advocated on behalf of homeless trans kids, as well as pressed for trans inclusion in mainstream MOGAI activist groups. They also founded the STAR House, which sheltered these homeless kids. Learn more about Marsha here in this video.

    These ladies are phenomenal; and I’m sure they would be just as tired as I am of seeing cis white gay boys being the face of our movement.

UAV engines are built at this subsidiary of Israeli drone manufacturer Elbit in   Lichfield, UK for export to Israel. According to their export license, they are only used for UAVs intended for export from Israel, thus do not constitute “arming Israel”. The Drone Campaign Network disagrees.

    Outlines

    Writers are never short on ideas, but oftentimes we have trouble sorting them out and getting them down on the page. It can be daunting, especially when you have a complex concept or world that has to be built, but it’s useful to know that you’re not the only one…

  13. People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have corpses in their mouths.
