By my estimate we have spent 20 hours in the last few days at A&E with my partners kidney infection. In that time, we've had, at most 15 minutes of time in front of a doctor. I've had to miss a day of work already and tomorrow is not looking likely.

I do love our NHS, but it is far from perfect. I'm begging the UK population to vote for people who will actually return to funding it properly.

Women's football is better than men's because when the women's team won I didn't fear for my safety and was happy to go to another pub and have another drink in a town where it'd just been pride and I either look like a woman or some kind of queer.

@lapis @Taweret pig chef mascots for BBQ restaurants always give me a horrible feeling because of their collaborator status. While looking for a suitably horrifying one I found this (basically all of the image results for "BBQ pig mascot" are horrifying if you want more)

One use of CWs I really like on here is a summary of the main point followed by content warnings, so that opinions confronting dominant systems are exposed and not politely hidden away (for instance, "fuck the police, ACAB"), while warnings are added for content that is upsetting/triggering to vulnerable people ("police brutality, antiblackness, anti-indigenous violence") so that the people affected can filter or otherwise engage with consent. The post is also boost-friendlier this way.
