most ted talks are a bunch of neoliberal wanking off

@taweret They almost let someone from my old job do a Ted Talk, until the organizers realized she was going to talk about her in depth view on DV and assault and shit and how to reform society. and it wasn't.... liberal.

@magicalmilly now see if she had an "inspiring" speech about how DV made her stronger or was launching a new app to make money off counseling victims or some shit, they'd be all over that


@taweret she had been a victim, and was talking about how she was empowered by the great resources that had been losing funding.

which... isn't what they wanted.
