POLITICS

In other news, water is wet.

Since 2009, Colorado has had the single most effective anti-abortion program in the country. In its first four years (for which we now have full data), it reduced abortions by 42%, and teen pregnancies by 40%. And there is nothing particularly startling about the success, because it was done by the most obvious means possible: give contraception to women who want it but can't get access to it, namely teenagers and people who can't afford it. 

"Startlingly," this turns out to work quite well, quite inexpensively, and make basically everyone happy. ("Startlingly" is in quotes because I suspect that if I asked someone who knew nothing about American politics, "what would you do to decrease the rate of unwanted pregnancies?," they would probably guess pretty much exactly what Colorado did, and be not at all startled that it worked) 

(This is not actually a horribly new story, there are just some more numbers out. We've known that this has been working well for quite some time.)___POLITICS

I remember reading something similar with a classroom of "troubled teens." The teacher gave them permission to make little origami stars any time they couldn't concentrate or got frustrated (basically any time they would have lashed out), and then they put the stars in a jar on his desk and continued their work. Incidents in the classroom plummeted.

Looking forward to organizing in the new house. Lots of "everything in its place" to do there once we move in. Relaxes me and makes me feel accomplished.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

I heart all my little minions <3

I just thought I would mark today with a post I made four years ago, welcoming everyone on board just a few minutes after we flipped the switch and launched Google+. 

Over the course of the week that followed, I decided to try something a bit crazy and not really "traditional Google:" I spent lots of time running around the service, talking to everyone I encountered, and welcoming them aboard. What I found was that there were tremendous numbers of people out there who wanted to talk: not just about the service, but about all the things they cared about in their lives, from their pets to geopolitics. And the results changed my life.

It's been an amazing four years here: I've seen the project grow from a crazy idea to a giant, thriving community, spread around the world.  I've had so many conversations on so many subjects, and learned so much in the process, that I can't even count. I've learned to write much more effectively, and what it is to have a real conversation about incredibly sensitive subjects where people nonetheless treat each other with respect and seriousness. I've made an amazing group of friends here, people I love and trust and talk to every day. And I even met the love of my life, my brilliant and beloved wife, through the service.

So looking back on four years of what we've built here, I can say: this is going really well. I'm exceptionally glad to have met all of you, and to have had some part in building this community we share, and I'm looking forward to seeing where the next four years take us!___HAPPY ANNIVERSARY

I heart all my little minions <3

And now there's another place I must add to my bucket list.

This region of forest in Basque country has been harvested for charcoal for many years, not by clearcutting, but by systematic pruning. This has caused the trees to grow with very long, spidery branches, even as the forest itself remains intact – and the resulting setting is haunting. Oskar Zapirain's photos are well worth the look.___MINIONS

POLITICS

Yep.

The perpetrator of yesterday's terrorist strike was captured a few hours ago, and the bodies of the dead have not yet been buried, and already I'm seeing a refrain pop up in news coverage and in people's comments: How do we understand this killer? What made him turn out this way? Was he mentally ill, was he on drugs, was he abused, was he influenced by someone in his life? Were his motivations about politics, religion, personal relationships, psychological? We can't form opinions about why he did this yet; we shouldn't assume that, just because [insert thing here], it was about race.

You might mistake this, at first, for a genuine interest in understanding the motivations that would turn a young man into a terrorist and a mass murderer. But when other kinds of terrorists -- say, Muslims from Afghanistan -- commit atrocities, the very same people who are asking these questions are asking completely different ones: Why are Muslims so violent? What is it in Islam that makes them so prone to hating America, hating Christianity, hating Freedom?

I think that there are two, very important, things going on here. The more basic one is that, when terrorists are from a group you've never met, it's far easier to ascribe their behavior to the whole group; if it's from a group you know, and you know that the average member of that group isn't malicious or bloodthirsty, then people start asking individual questions. 

But the more important one is that the group that this terrorist belonged to was not merely familiar: it's the same group to which most of the people asking the questions belong. Not merely the same broad group -- "Muslims" and "Christians" are groups of over a billion people each, groups far too broad to have any deep commonalities -- but a far narrower group, a group with a common culture. And there's a reason that people don't want to ask "What is it about this group that caused it:" because in this case, there's a real answer.

The picture you see below is of the Confederate flag which the state of South Carolina flies on the grounds of its state house, and has ever since 1962. (That's 1962, not 1862: it was put there in response to the Civil Rights movement, not to the Civil War) Today, all of the state flags in that state are at half mast; only the Confederate flag is flying at full mast.

The state government itself is making explicit its opinion on the matter: while there may be formal mourning for the dead, this is a day when the flag of white supremacy can fly high. When even the government, in its formal and official behavior, condones this, can we really be surprised that terrorists are encouraged? (Terrorists, plural, as this is far from an isolated incident; even setting aside the official and quasi-official acts of governments, the history of terror attacks and even pogroms in this country is utterly terrifying)

Chauncey DeVega asked some excellent questions in his article at Salon (http://goo.gl/3AZWy7); among them,

1. What is radicalizing white men to commit such acts of domestic terrorism and mass shootings? Are Fox News and the right-wing media encouraging violence?

6. When will white leadership step up and stop white right-wing domestic terrorism?

7. Is White American culture pathological? Why is White America so violent?

8. Are there appropriate role models for white men and boys? Could better role models and mentoring help to prevent white men and boys from committing mass shootings and being seduced by right-wing domestic terrorism?

The callout of Fox News in particular is not accidental: they host more hate-filled preachers and advocates of violence, both circuitous and explicit, than Al Jazeera. 

There is a culture which has advocated, permitted, protected, and enshrined terrorists in this country since its founding. Its members and advocates are not apologetic in their actions; they only complain that they might be "called racist," when clearly they aren't, calling someone racist is just a way to shut down their perfectly reasonable conversation and insult them, don't you know?

No: This is bullshit, plain and simple. It is a culture which believes that black and white Americans are not part of the same polity, that they must be kept apart, and that the blacks must be and remain subservient. That robbing or murdering them is permissible, that quiet manipulations of the law to make sure that "the wrong people" don't show up in "our neighborhoods," or take "our money," or otherwise overstep their bounds, are not merely permissible, but the things that we do in order to keep society going. That black faces and bodies are inherently threatening, and so both police and private citizens have good reason to be scared when they see them, so that killing them -- whether they're young men who weren't docile enough at a traffic stop or young children playing in the park -- is at most a tragic, but understandable, mistake.

I have seen this kind of politics before. I watch a terrorist attack on a black church in Charleston, and it gives me the same fear that I get when I see a terrorist attack against a synagogue: the people who come after one group will come after you next.

This rift -- this seeing our country as being built of two distinct polities, with the success of one having nothing to do with the success of the other or of the whole -- is the poison which has been eating at the core of American society for centuries. It is the origin of our most bizarre laws, from weapons laws to drug policies to housing policy, and to all of the things which upon rational examination appear simply perverse. How many of the laws which seem to make no sense make perfect sense if you look at them on the assumption that their real purpose is to enforce racial boundaries? I do not believe that people are stupid: I do not believe that lawmakers pass laws that go against their stated purpose because they can't figure that out. I believe that they pass laws, and that people encourage and demand laws, because consciously or subconsciously, they know what kind of world they will create.

We tend to reserve the word "white supremacy" for only the most extreme organizations, the ones who are far enough out there that even the fiercest "mainstream" advocates of racism can claim no ties to them. But that, ultimately, is bullshit as well. This is what it is, this is the culture which creates, and encourages, and coddles terrorists. And until we have excised this from our country, it will poison us every day.

First and foremost, what we need to do is discuss it. If there's one thing I've seen, it's that discussing race in my posts is the most inflammatory thing I could possibly do: people become upset when I mention it, say I'm "making things about race" or trying to falsely imply that they're racists or something like that. 

When there's something you're afraid to discuss, when there's something that upsets you when it merely comes onto the table: That's the thing you need to talk about. That's the thing that has to come out there, in the open.

We've entered a weird phase in American history where overt statements of racism are forbidden, so instead people go to Byzantine lengths to pretend that that isn't what it is. But that just lets the worm gnaw deeper. Sunshine is what lets us move forward.

And the flag below? So long as people can claim with a straight face that this is "just about heritage," that it isn't somehow a blatant symbol of racism, we know that there is bullshit afloat in our midst.

The flag itself needs to come down; not with ceremony, it simply needs to be taken down, burned, and consigned to the garbage bin.___POLITICS

Yep.

Sarah Is Weird

I haven't weird faced you in a while... with bonus weird hair that's been in a knot on my head all day and also had been rained on. You are welcome, Internet!

Side note: I wish to get my hair cut soon.

As random updates go, this is a super random one.

Fitness Update: I worked out on Sunday... for the first time since January. The Zumba game on Xbox is fun but hard to follow. I may check out the non-game DVDs, or find a class around here somewhere. I think if I alternate strength training and Zumba I might meet my fitness goals some time this calendar year. lol

How y'all doing with your fitnesses?

Moving Update: We had a buyer for our house (with closing on May 22), but they backed out the Friday before we moved to Missouri. We have since lowered the price and had an open house, and have had at... more »

Moving Update: We had a buyer for our house (with closing on May 22), but they backed out the Friday before we moved to Missouri. We have since lowered the price and had an open house, and have had at least one house tour almost every day since we put it back on the market, and two almost-bites since then.... Yet we still have not sold it, because bad luck? I don't know. Multiple realtors including our own think the house is great and is priced right. So we have paid unexpected June mortgage and are now looking at paying July mortgage when we weren't planning on it and with a greatly reduced income (Nedthing took a pay cut to come out here). Wee. In the mean time we have invaded my grandparents and don't know when we will have our own space.

Employment Update: Moved here May 13th, got settled in, applied to some places on the 21st, got an interview on the 22nd, got a second interview on the 25th, got a job offer on the 27th, talked them up a little on pay, accepted revised offer on the 29th, and will start Monday June 8th.

I don't mean to brag but... wait yes I do. I'm amazing. Now I just gotta figure it when payday is because we needs the monies, precious.

TV Update: I am almost caught up on all my shows and wow I have some reviews coming. Soon.

Food Update: Pancakes for dinner because obviously.

Furry Family Update: Sophie the St Bernard has a new BFF with my step-bro's family dog, Max the Great Dane. In fact, she has nearly convinced them to get a second large breed dog. Nedthing and I are amused.

+Mz Maau​ is graciously watching Ravenclaw the scaredy cat and keeping me posted on her adjustment to temporary family swap. I suspect she'll finally get comfortable there right when we get a house and take her back, at which point she'll freak out again for a while. Poor kitteh.




So that's my world in a nutshell. How's you, little minions?___

MINIONS

My phone typed "minions" as "monsoons." IDEK.

Anyway. Well-timed article is well-timed. Several people including myself needed this.

How to Get Yourself to Do Things

As you can see, the problem starts when you know what you need to do, but balk on doing it. It grows in that space between the knowing and the doing. The anxiety, shame, and fear associated with the task rise as long as you live in that space.

Nothing else happens in this phase, except for your own suffering and aging. We can call it the Unproductive Phase. The longer this phase goes on, the more anxiety it generates and the harder the task itself appears to be.

But it doesn’t last long. You begin to realize that the task, like all tasks you will ever need to do, is finite and consists only of small, ordinary actions like Googling things, talking to people, reading, writing, sketching, printing, and cleaning up. The task begins to look patently doable. Your sense of capability swells and the fear recedes. This phase takes less and less willpower and courage as it goes on, until the task is in your past, and the life cycle ends.___MINIONS

Be Careful About "Missing Person" Posts

It's one thing to circulate a current Amber Alert, ensuring that all of the information is there, that it comes from a proper source (ie don't just reshare, CHECK THE LINKS), and that the answer is to call police, not just a random number.  And then, of course, update your post (and let those who have reshared know) when it is resolved.

But "missing" posts that tell you to call someone other than police, that have no date or location, or are in any other way suspect should not not be shared and possibly should even be reported.  This is how stalkers can find their hidden victims.  This is how abusive parents reconnect with children that have been taken from them for good reason.

Go ahead and assist police on actual missing persons, but don't pretend you're a cop or detective or on the crime show of the week by taking it upon yourself to effectively dox someone who is trying to stay hidden for reasons you may not be aware of.

Let's face the facts: some of the people you know online are carefully constructed personas, and some of them lie.  That nice guy you've been interacting with on social media for ages?  Do you think he'd tell you about how often he punches his wife in the face?  Of course not, so when he tells you she's missing and you put the word out and a friend of a friend saw her, you're unwittingly part of her further abuse and possibly even murder.

That nice lady you talk to on that game you play, who always sends more lives or helps with your farming or whatever...do you think she's going to tell you about how she beats her teenager and is about to ship him off to bible camp to beat out his gayness?  Hell no, she's not going to tell you about his "shame"!  So when he runs away and she puts out a plea to call her because she just wants her precious boy to come home and you help her find him, you are not helping him at all.

Imagine if someone has escaped a personal hell after months of brave but terrified planning, and you're the one who points a big digital finger to say, "HERE THEY ARE!"

We all want to help our friends when someone they know is legitimately missing.  We all want abducted people found fast and hopefully relatively unscathed.

But THINK before you post, and THINK before you share.  Check the details.  You don't need to be rude about it, but you can be responsible.  When in doubt, don't reshare.
