Poem for my Father: As I Grow Older

2022.01.27 11:08 Why-y-y-y Poem for my Father: As I Grow Older

14 Years
Fourteen years.
That’s how long I watched you drink your life away.
Fourteen years.
That’s how long it took me to become a teenager.
Fourteen years.
That’s how long it took you,
to get your shit together.

3 1/2 years.
Three and a half years.
That’s how long I watched you struggle,
To remain sober.
Three and a half years.
That’s how long it took you,
To hurt me in more ways
Than you could ever know.
Three and a half years.
That’s how long ago it was
That mom kicked you out.

17 1/2 years.
Seventeen and a half years.
I only add that half because you’re in recovery.
You plaster that number everywhere.
Seventeen and a half years.
That’s how long I wish you were clean and sober.
Seventeen and a half years.
You were mean!
Mentally abusive.
Made me scared to move a finger.
Yet so kind! So… confusing.

I’m almost eighteen dad.
I’ve never done drugs before.
Always said no to that.
I’m almost eighteen dad.
I’ve had alcohol.
You know that. I was with you when I drank it.
I’m almost eighteen dad.
Practically an “adult.”

I’m still here dad.
After all these years,
Everyone else pushed themselves away from you.
I’m still here dad.
Wanting you to look my way,
just for once.
I’m still here dad.
But you’re already gone.
Not once,
not one time
could I stop myself from saying,
“I love you.”

2022.01.27 11:08 TheInvaderZim If you want to know what it looks like when a coordinated astroturf attack hits reddit, check out the front page right now. Holy shit.

Let's get this out of the way:

yes the interview on behalf of /antiwork was mediocre, poorly-planned and in bad faith on the side of Fox. Yes the moderator in question should not have gone and the moderator was not a subreddit leader, just a manager. No the interview itself was not the absolute self-destruction of the subreddit.
Recap: here is the interview, it is less than 4 minutes long and you can tell how it's going to go literally from the interviewer's first question.
Here is how far down the link to the full interview actually was when I searched for it instead of just clicking a reddit link.
So let's start with that: the actual full 4 minute interview (which was bad but not community suicide) was 12 fucking links down when I tried to find it on youtube. The top link is a version edited entirely to portray the reddit mod in a bad light, followed by five reaction videos and three unrelated links.
Why use this keywording?
I put in the word "antiwork" and this string of keywords was the first and auto-complete, meaning it is the largest searched string regarding the topic right now.
Which is all to say the actual video is being hidden.
Moving on:
Reddit's front page is bought and sold at this point. AFAIK there are dozens of agencies selling upvotes and you can buy them for less than a penny apiece. This is not anything new - the worst offenders are the mainline general subs (technology, music, worldnews, news, memes, dankmemes, etc.) and the places where the Wendy's ads periodically pop up. That content does not at all mesh with how people actually think and behave, which is a lot more in line with subs like this and other small and unnoticed places that only have a few dozen posts & comments a day.
So, in summary, here is what happened:
  1. Fox (AKA the face of coordinated right-wing media) decided to try a gotcha on /antiwork. This is nothing new, but most subreddits have the good sense to fucking ignore shit like that because any mainstream media "coverage" is at this point closer to WWE than actual news.
  2. The subreddit mods respond and elect a socially anxious trans woman to be the face of the sub. On Fox. Oops, oh well. Again, this is nothing new because subreddit mods collectively put their feet in their mouth literally all the time.
  3. Fox airs the interview, antiwork responds, and it's worth noting that the initial response was relatively civil, at least in its top responses. A lot of >don't do this, it was obviously a bad idea, but not historically awful> type stuff.
  4. Aaaand then the brigading started. A trans woman reddit moderator that had the gall to go on fox news? Describe a figure that the right hates more.
  5. The subreddit goes on damage control (because what the absolute fuck else are they going to do when the entire internet decides "eh, time to go respond here" and 50+% of it is (in)authentic right wing nutbaggery directly attacking the sub, its mods or the individual in question)
  6. The meltdown spreads. Current front page top posts are:
/subredditdrama with 16000 comments and 46k upvotes, making it the 4th largest thread of all time for the sub and beat out only by T_D threads,
/outoftheloop with 17k and 3800 comments,
/news with 16k and 3300 comments,
/bikinibottomtwitter (which sucks, I like that sub most of the time) with 21k and 3000 comments,
/wallstreetbets with 59k and 2800 comments,
/antiwork itself with 27k and 2500 comments,
/prematurecelebration with 35k and 1700 comments.
Of those subreddits, both meme reddits directly state that the interview "killed the movement," which isn't a coincidence, and it's a first, second or third level comment or implication across every other thread. The entire debacle is wrapped in right-wing nonsense surrounding trans people to require heavy moderation and turn the community against itself, not to mention the actual content of the controversy: an interview on behalf of a subreddit for workers rights.
So here's the thing: I can't actually prove this whole debacle was a planned attack by right-wing astroturfing, and because of this, I will never actually act on this hunch. Proof would require, among other things, a smoking gun, and if it were that easy then Fox would've been out of business 10 years ago. But with that said, it's kind of... obvious.
Never forget: everything you see on the front page of reddit is a narrative suiting corporate or government propaganda, from war news and headlines about current leadership to ads for Wendy's hamburgers or news about Hellboy 3. It's submitted by users, the tide is determined by 'turf, then the users maintain that status quo. It's inexpensive, proven control and that would've been true 12 years ago when Reddit first started attracting communities.
The revolution will not be televised. Don't buy it.
