Whenever you hear someone say "everything happens for a reason," well, if it makes someone feel better, that's fine. But (A) it's false, and (B) that belief, known as "just world" theory, correlates strongly with victim-blaming, authoritarianism, and conspiracy theory. Letitia Anne Peplau and Zick Rubin do the science in "Who Believes in a Just World?"

So uh, I just wanna explain something that might be super helpful to understand where I come from with my anti-cringe culture. Its not an attack on anyoen who was apart of it, people get caught up in the system they are born in...
But, Internet culture is built on liberal marketization of our interactions... and one of the quickest ways to get social capital is by making someone else feel bad about not being part of the status quo for any reason.

I'm an old from US (CA->MA->IL->OR) but living in Seoul since '02. I'm an educator and a free improvising musician (since '97).
I'm interested in goofy shit, people being nice to each other, leftist politics and theory (though my interest in the latter is dwindling), organizing, poetry, music (country, rap, soul, improvised esp.), food, beer, and returning the means of production to the hands of the working class.
I can usually be found in Seoul, Portland, or Berlin. ❤️ to you all.
For new people:
The fediverse has been around for around a decade now, and it's not going to "die" any time soon.
Other centralized social media encourages bad habits to keep engagement, but we're not about that here. It takes time to shake those bad habits, but do your best and you'll get used to it. Thanks to the public timelines, everyone has an audience right away here, so nobody worries about follower count/ratio. We're here to have a good time, not to get "clout".
