We hate you now

Some musings on some of the things many of us are feeling about the differing levels of safety with regards go COVID-19 and coronavirus spread. Quinn Norton on Medium: We Hate You Now — The Hardest Problem of The Aftertimes

This isn’t my first pandemic, I grew up in the age of AIDS in a deeply impacted community. I buried a lot of people back then, and eventually did a lot of safer sex education and learned a lot about how you fight a disease as a community member, not a clinician or a researcher. I learned the valuable lesson that shame is not a strategy. There are moments, interpersonal moments, where shame is absolutely a tactic, but it is never a political strategy. So I want to assure you what I’m talking about isn’t about shaming people.

This is about the consequences of human actions. This is about pure rage, caged up in millions of houses. ...

Thanks! And yeah, we have multiple ex-friends who were out sharing fluids during the pandemic. People who knew better, but chose to let the orange idiot make mask-wearing a political statement. The good thing to come out of this is that we now have a better idea of who our friends really are, I guess.

Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
