@GottaLaff Look who's talking.
#Target sent their #Canadian stores into bankruptcy, although Target could have paid their service providers, taxes, pension dues, and suppliers. But bankcruptcy was cheaper for Target. They didn't give a damn that this led to bankcruptcies and layoffs at several suppliers. #Shame #greed

Matt Bernstein: LGBT Conservatives (w/ Contrapoints)
LGBT conservatives: Why? How? Where did they come from? What can we learn from them, and how can we dismantle the LGBT #conservative that lives within all of us? Natalie Wynn (aka #Contrapoints) helps us psychoanalyze one of the more confusing political positions of our time. Jeffree Star makes an appearance, for better or for worse.

#Troubles legacy bill enters law.
<< when the #DUP, #SinnFein, and Irish gov. agree something is bad; it is unarguably bad.
Anyone who is not opposed to this monstrous bill is either happy to blind-eye cold-blooded murderers or has just not thought through the consequences.
The #Founders ' biggest mistake was worrying only about a monarchical tyrant, and assuming that #tradition, #honor, #enlightenment, #voters, and/or #shame would keep #dolts like #Tuberville from breaking the #government.
Unfortunately, the #GOP #conservatives care nothing for tradition, their honor is performative, they equate enlightenment with "woke," they think shame is a way to attack their opponents, and their voters in our binary system keep returning them to DC.
Do animals feel shame, or are they faking it? Animals, especially dogs and cats, can show signs of shame, guilt, and embarrassment, but these are not necessarily the same as human emotions. Animals can use these expressions to manipulate us or avoid punishment.
And if you don't want to read my whole blog post with the backstory & explanation, but just want to know about the three free online taster events you could come to, then you can jump to a description here:
New blog post!
I wrote about some cool stuff I've been learning recently, and a few short free online taster/sampler events happening this Monday (UK daytime), open to anyone interested.
Taster topics include
• masking & unmasking (in the sense of freedom to be the way you are - that's the one I'm helping to run)
• autism/ADHD and sex
• how shame & humiliation work in our brains.
This is just the kind of denialist oil propaganda the CBC does all the time. Rex Murphy wrote all the oil stories for the next ten years after he left.
How ashamed one must be to be associated with @cbcnews
Nothings new cbc says, be reassured, sell more oil.

Used an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle. Legally purchased the guns even though he had been involuntarily committed for a mental health issue. Left a journal suggesting a deeply disturbed mind imprinted with racist garbage from the internet.
The DeSantis-backing GOP gun-sucking racists out there love these guys because they are susceptible to social media programming but offer wonderful deniability.
@CatHat Outrage and pain are our center telling us action must be taken.
The challenge is that when our center tells us it is time to act, we can do so too heedlessly—reaching for the mechanisms most readily at hand.
We are so deeply habituated to saneism that we even turn it on ourselves:

Shame for getting stuck mid-process doesn't tend to encourage folk to complete such process.
Yet ours is a society that shames mourning as a somehow unjust imposition on others.
Our is a society that needs better tools to more wholeheartedly do the work of mourning.
Ours is a society that needs better tools to more adeptly process and work through shame.
When enough folk get stuck, we are all stuck.
We've work to do… to get unstuck.
The Ford government is being irresponsible by refusing to support allowing Toronto to pursue a sales tax to fill its significant budget hole. This is on top of them depriving Toronto of $200M annually of development charges. #shame #TOpoli #ONpoli https://www.thestar.com/news/gta/torontonians-support-some-new-taxes-to-fix-the-city-s-pandemic-ravaged-finances-poll-says/article_3cc9e238-db05-57c3-b819-46a738eb6490.html

A How to Guide To Creating Your Very Own Dangerous Cult Following
Donald Trump is a Malignant Narcissistic Sociopath who has no feelings of shame like you and I. When accused of infidelity his response is "So what", when accused of sexual battery his response is "So what" even his attempt to rig the votes in order to stay in the office of President his response has been "So what".
And His Base Love Him For It!
This is about how he got there
I'm rereading a very long, rambling document of word vomit that I wrote about a year ago in which I was (and still am) struggling to come to terms with the #shame and #DisenfranchisedGrief that I feel around #ComingOutAsAnAdult.
A year ago when I wrote it, I felt ashamed that I even had to write it. But looking back at it now, as much as I wish I could go back and redo my whole life so I'd never have to write it, I feel a lot of compassion for that past version of myself. She didn't deserve to be so alone and deal with so many of those horrible, overwhelming feelings by herself. Maybe there's a small act of meaning and bravery in that writing.
Is this #SelfCompassion? Am I doing it right?
Evidence that there are some people who have no #shame. Two people turned down gongs in Liz #Truss's resignation #honours list. But 14 others have accepted! Imagine spending the rest of your life as Sir or Lord Something and everyone knowing you got it from Liz Truss. These people are on a different #ethical planet than most of us
I have so many complicated feelings about shaming people for their harmful actions, specifically from a public health standpoint. It hurts so much to see people I care about or respect go everywhere maskless. I want people to know that what they're doing is not okay. I don't want a thousand other people to say the same thing making them feel hopeless and pull away from doing better all together. I want people to hear that they've hurt others, acknowledge that, and then do better. I want them to mean it, not just say it to stop people harassing them.
I have shamed people or been part of mass shaming re: COVID. I just did in a recent post about the ADA33 afterparty. But the more I think about it and hear from people who have been in community organising for decades, the more I feel like I'm just doing collateral damage. I read 5 different points of view on it by 20 different people just today and it's so much to consider, I feel very confused. I feel like I don't even know what accountability is anymore. I just want people to do better. I don't want the person doing harm to feel hopeless. But leaders going maskless to disability events also makes me feel hopeless. I want everyone to just do better, be better, and have hope.
I have so much to learn and un learn. I need to read abolitionist and HIV organisers on this.

Je tombe là-dessus, l'interview d'un mec qui a parcouru les déserts de Namibie à Vélo. Super. Paysages magnifiques, la route des diamants, les villes coloniales allemandes à l'abandon, hyper romantique.

There's also a weird sort of #shame that I feel, like the #Christfascists won. Their goal was to keep me from experiencing any sort of sexual or #queer liberation, to make me straight and vanilla, and they basically won. I was too stupid and pathetic to figure out I was #bisexual and #kinky before the #pandemic, when I had a chance to actually explore those identities in meaningful ways, so I might as well just be straight and vanilla. The Christfascists won.
Logically, I know that none of that is actually true and it's a #trauma response from being raised in religious fundamentalism, but it's where my mind goes in darker moments.
There's also the immense #shame that I feel for not exploring any of this #kink stuff sooner when, like everything else in my life, I show up in these spaces and everyone else my age seems to have been at this for at least a decade. And because of #covid, who knows how long, if ever, I'll have to wait until I actually can explore some of these things in meaningful way?
Think about this:
We searched a vast ocean for years for any sign of MH-370, but we can’t take a few weeks to sift a #Winnipeg landfill for two #MMIW victims we know are in there. We’re not even going to try on a limited basis.
This country is still racist as fuck.
The Wiener Zeitung was government owned but independently edited. Today, I had to print its final issue. After 320 years!
Instead of working towards a new ownership structure, the government decided to close it in spite. Doggone #shame.
20 years ago, I wrote this article about how Canada hopes to bring all of Canada online:
Today, the government owned (but independently edited) newspaper printed its final issue. After 320 years, the Austrian government decided to shut it down by law, rather than to seek a new ownership structure.
Ever been fired from a job?
I have - the worst part was, I didn't even do it.
So I wrote about the #shame and the stuff that comes with it.

Shame - Food for Worms
Great 3rd album by this British group. It’s post-punk, but I’d say on the thoughtful/arty side, and unlike previous Shame albums, there’s quite a lot of “real singing” going on.
Supposedly recorded live in the studio (I think the vocals may have been recorded later), it has that kind of “band playing together” energy.
Here's the thing: #shame is something we want to avoid. I've realised that there are 2 broad types of shame: internal and external. External shame largely comes from someone else (society, community etc), and internal shame comes from you not acting in the way you are or want to be (external shame can absolutely become internalised shame, but I'm not qualified to speak about that). I've found two braod ways to deal with this shame #MentalHealth
🇨🇦 Dr. Banting fought all his life to stop pharma from stealing his invention. Lost in court once to a US firm. Banting lost insulin. But after a year of being unable to make "their" insulin in their labs, insulin was returned to Dr. Banting.
The final betrayal of Banting was later. As he was "ducks in rowing" for his death, he protected insulin by "selling it" to his Alma Mater for a dollar.
But after Bantings death, The University of Toronto, quickly sold it to US pharma.
I'm pretty sure that people who set up Fediverse accounts they didn't use much were just making a parking space for later (i.e. now), probably not useful to try to #shame them about slinking or creeping or whatever.

GOP Rep. Who Spoke At Pro-Hitler Event Goes After Ilhan Omar Because Of ‘Anti-Semitism’
Reading the news regarding politics often makes me feel ashamed to be a US citizen.
I love her to bits but I realized after my parents #divorce some years ago (I'm from a rare breed of people who got to see their parents got through a hateful divorce at adulthood) that, even she wanted to do good, she actually got me some of my worst traits. She resorted to #shame to correct me when I was a teen.
I remember when I got too much 'feminine manners' when I was around 15 - she imitated me, parroted me - it shamed me so much that it indeed corrected me, I lost the 'feminine' presenting but also got me big issues about trust. To this day I have a broken psyche. I have a diagnosis of #borderline personality disorder and I'm always jumpy about what I tell people about my truth.
On the other hand, she can give incredible advice. She was always there for me and always accepted me and my boyfriends. She tried, in her broken way, to make me as she thought would be a easier way to navigate the world. She's still trying, sometimes. But I'm not having none of her shit anymore. I'm my own person.
I’m hearing #Jesus say something like this:
“Listen! Change your #mind & your #heart about the way you are headed… turn & face a new way! #God is here with you & loves you deeply… God’s Kingdom is near. The way you face friends… the way you are headed will lead to disaster.”
I find some healing in that. Do you?
Wow, the trolls are really out today. Last year, I wrote a piece on #shame in #medicine. It was a difficult piece to write & took a lot of courage to make myself vulnerable & publish it. Overall the responses I received from colleagues (and readers outside of medicine, too), were positive. Someone (in medicine) just decided to email me to essentially shame me for writing it & for the incident that triggered it, which was, again, about...shame...and the problem w/ shame in medicine
I am so sick and tired of browser makers having to mangle their user-agent strings because site developers do astoundingly clumsy, half-assed, thoughtless browser sniffing.
By the time IE11 was out, people should have learned from the many previous examples of this. But apparently not.
People like this make me so angry.
