This video essay uses the Barbie Movie as a primer to help explain what patriarchy actually is, what it isn't, and how it ends up harming everyone, including...

I’m kind of amazed that this is getting downvotes after 20 minutes, even though the video is 33 minutes. I guess you already saw this?

About the bear...
  • I think a lot of men believe “I’m one of the good ones” and don’t stop to think that a random woman on the street (or in the woods, in this case) has no way of determining that.

  • In 1960 Over 90% of Homicides in the USA Were Solved Compared to Only 50% Today
  • I grew up in “north Detroit” (Oakland County 🤣) and remember the same things. It’s amazing that Devil’s Night isn’t a thing anymore.

    Also, being from Oakland County, you can imagine how people reacted when I went to Wayne State.

  • Setup ideas with an old AV receiver
  • Sounds like there’s a headless version of Plexamp that can run on a Pi.

    If you use Plex, you would be able to use Plexamp on your computer or phone to play your music on the Pi’s Plexamp.

    Or you could get a modern receiver that supports Chromecast and AirPlay and use one of those to stream to the receiver.

  • I don't know the way, but this ain't it
  • If a system moves people around and some of them die, that’s the purpose of the system.

    You can say “we don’t want any of them to die” and that’s true, but the system doesn’t reflect that.

    You can say “fewer people will die because more people can get to hospitals, but some will die as a result of people moving around” and the system will demonstrate that.

    Is that a “we don’t want anyone to die” system or is it a “we are going to accept some people dying as a result of the system so that more people can be saved” system?

    Harping on people to get married from up in the ivory tower fails to engage with reality of life in the dating trenches.

    Opinion | Why Aren’t More People Marrying? Ask Women What Dating Is Like.

    This is a tough piece, one that I share without fully endorsing. It lays out the problems that women experience with some men, like that men are not getting college degrees at the same rate as women or the lack of emotional modelling provided to boys and young men:

    > For a variety of reasons — mixed messages from the broader culture about toughness and vulnerability, the activity-oriented nature of male friendships — it seems that by the time men begin dating, they are relatively “limited in their ability and willingness to be fully emotionally present and available,” he said.

    Where I think it stops short is in thinking about the root causes of those things, and how supporting men can bring them into the feminist tent.

    ADHD has real health effects

    > Compared to other killers from a public health standpoint, ADHD is bad. Smoking, for example, reduces life expectancy by 2.4 years, and if you smoke more than 20 cigarettes a day you're down about 6.5 years. For diabetes and obesity it's a couple of years. For elevated blood cholesterol, it's 9 months. ADHD is worse than the top 5 killers in the U.S. combined. > > Having ADHD costs a person nearly thirteen years of life, on average. Barkley adds, And that's on top of all the findings of a greater risk for accidental injury and suicide....About two-thirds of people with ADHD have a life expectancy reduced by up to 21 years.

    This is from Edward M. Hallowell and John J. Ratey in their book ADHD 2.0

    This change means regulations will look at recreational marijuana use much like alcohol use and won't test for it in new hires.

    Recreational marijuana has been legal in Michigan since late 2018, but in the years since people looking to work for the state of Michigan were still subject to marijuana testing. But that changed this week in a unanimous vote from the Michigan Civil Service Commission.

    This change means regulations will look at recreational marijuana use much like alcohol use and won't test for it in new hires.
