I just read about 200+ comments on a Mormon Mommy blog debating to re-use plastic zip bags or not when making meals for your family. I can only assume they must feel the same sense of bafflement that I now have form their blog, when (or if) they read mine.

Why Deep Green Resistance?

1.  Industrial civilization is killing all life on our planet, driving to extinction 200 species per day, and it won’t stop voluntarily. Global warming is happening now, at an astounding speed. The only honest solution is to stop industrial civilization from burning fossil fuels.

2. Most consumption is based on violence against people (human and non-human) and on degrading & destroying landbases across the planet.

3. Life on Earth is more important than this insane, temporary culture based on hyper-exploitation of finite resources. This culture needs to be destroyed before it consumes all life on this planet.

4. Humanity is not the same as civilization. Humans have developed many sane and sustainable cultures, themselves at risk from civilization.

5. Most people know this culture is insane and needs radical change, but don’t see any way to bring the change about.

6. Unlike most environmental and social justice organizations, Deep Green Resistance questions the existence and necessity of civilization itself. DGR asks “What if we do away with civilization altogether?”

7.  Unlike most environmental and social justice organizations, DGR asks “What must we do to be effective?”, not “What will those in power allow us to do?”

8. DGR offers organized, reliable ways to promote sane ways of living and surviving the ongoing crisis.

9.  DGR has a realistic plan to stop the insanity, Decisive Ecological Warfare.

Heath is trying to learn how to play Skyrim, she keeps going through dungeons and after completing them she tries to turn around and rerun them instead of looking for the exit. Quest dungeons always go forward, don’t try to run back through the traps!

I may not have changed out of my pjs today, but I at least my hair looks nice. Maybe tomorrow I might have an excuse to actually leave the house.

so, just in case y’all think that fat fetishization isn’t a big deal, or just in case you think that fatphobia doesn’t exist

fat fetishization of fat girls is often linked to sexism. this is proof of that. notice how i did nothing to to provoke this guy. he went on this tirade for close to a half hour while i said nothing. he just kept going.

"you get defensive"

"turn me on so I can fuck you"

"I’ll go on a rant about how I want to fuck you because you’re fat, but know that you’re also a piece of shit who’s going to die"

LIKE HOW IS THAT NOT THE DIRECT RESULT OF FETISHIZM? He admitting to want to have sex, but only because he thinks of fat women as lesser. That’s scary as fuck.

Nah brah she’s not the one who got defensive. Someone made you look in a mirror and it scared the shit out of you.

This guy really does show what people who fetishize fat people think of us. We are purely objects to them and disconnected from any sense of humanity or personhood.

revolting shit

Someone find him and cut his wiener off.

why is self diagnosis bad

from psychologytoday.com

  • When you self-diagnose, you are essentially assuming that you know the subtleties that diagnosis constitutes. This can be very dangerous, as people who assume that they can surmise what is going on with themselves may miss the nuances of diagnosis. For example, people with mood swings often think that they have manic-depressive illness or bipolar disorder. However, mood swings are a symptom that can be a part of many different clinical scenarios, borderline personality disorder and major depression being two examples of other diagnoses. The clinician can help you discern whether you swing from normal to down or down to up, and by considering how long the mood swings last, the clinician can make the appropriate diagnosis. Here, the danger is that you may misdirect the clinician or even yourself.
  • One of the greatest dangers of self diagnosis in psychological syndromes, is that you may miss a medical disease that masquerades as a psychiatric syndrome. Thus, if you have panic disorder, you may miss the diagnosis of hyperthyroidism or an irregular heart beat. Even more serious is the fact that some brain tumors may present with changes in personality or psychosis or even depression. If you assume you have depression and treat it with an over-the-counter preparation, you may completely miss a medical syndrome. Even if you do not want conventional treatment for depression, you may want conventional treatment for a brain tumor.
  • Self-diagnosis also undermines the role of the doctor-which is not the best way to start the relationship. While doctors are generally very enthusiastic about getting packaged information, it would help if you actually trusted your doctor. If your doctor is someone whom you cannot trust, then think again about why you see this doctor. Your doctor should respect your opinion, but the discussion should be an active one. If you doubt the doctor’s diagnosis, tell him or her that you do and say why. This is much better than silently diagnosing your own syndrome.
  • Then there is the fact that we can know and see ourselves, but sometimes, we need a mirror to see ourselves more clearly. The doctor is that mirror. By self-diagnosing, you may be missing something that you cannot see. For example, you may be overwhelmed by anxiety and think that you have an anxiety disorder. The anxiety disorder may be covering up a major depressive disorder. Approximately 2/3 of people who present to outpatient clinics with anxiety have depression as well. In general, when two or more syndromes occur in the same person, we call this comorbidity. When people self-diagnose, they often miss the comorbidity that exists.
  • Another danger of self diagnosis is that you may think that there is more wrong with you than there actually is. For example, if you had insomnia, inattention and depression, you may believe that you have a sleep disorder, ADD and major depression. However, major depression can account for all of these symptoms. Thus, you may make things worse by worrying more as well.
  • Self-diagnosis is also a problem when you are in a state of denial about your symptoms. You may think that you have generalized body aches that started when your mood got worse, but a doctor may elect to do an EKG for chest pain that reveals possible coronary artery disease. You may have been trying to avoid the chest pain or you may have minimized this.
  • Lastly, there are certain syndromes that may not seem like problems to you even though they are very disruptive to your life. For example, with delusional disorder people do not think that they are delusional and because they are not overtly psychotic, they may not think to report paranoid symptoms that add up to delusional disorder. Also, many personality disorders are not spontaneously reported since they are usually problematic to other people.
  • Thus, self-diagnosis can have tremendous negative repercussions on the patient. For this reason, while reading is helpful and informative, it is always best to discuss your impressions with a doctor before you decide on the treatment you want.
