yep, checks out


Right on, although there is something powerful in the way she wears her conditions (and there are several) not just as badges of honor, but as shields against the slings and arrows and poorly reasoned views of her detractors. I find her to be inspiring as a speaker, an activist, and a human being because of just that.

Agreed on all counts. I just don't think that particular condition is the one worth singling out, as I'm sure you'll agree.

Greta is an incredibly courageous person. I can't imagine what taking on this kind of exposure, not to mention abuse, as a young person would be like--and the fact that she perseveres despite this is just extraordinary.

I think, particularly as a young person, it can be very difficult to come off as sincere to older people, even if you're completely passionate about what you're expressing. There will be people who will write you off one way or the other simply because of your age (not to mention gender/race/etc), and that can be very debilitating... but she doesn't let it phase her, and comes off as very genuine and earnest.

I can't say I'm surprised that there are people verbally abusing a child based on her appearance, gender, mental issues, etc, but goddamn it's really fucking disheartening.

I do like this as a name for a band that Bob Mould has nothing to do with.

Kids do it to each other, and most people are in a state of arrested development.

Greta seems to be fairly clued up about the reasons why her detractors usually resort to pathetic ad hominem attacks. Everything I've heard from her has been astute to the point of laser precision.

Also, Trumpstains mocking her fantastic speech is par for the course, and nobody would expect any better from that wretched gutter grub, but I love the way she took his words and made it her twitter bio.

I did get a pretty legit laugh out of that one.

I mean think about just some of the "Costumes" that DeepButz had over the years. We ain't even talking about being up to those standards.

she may be alright, but she's just an plaything in the hands of all the fake lefty-liberals who are all full of shit and feeding of this endless growth and all this hypercapitalist nightmare and want to feel better about themselves. i'm really fucking tired of all those teary-eyed cunts she attracts, all these fucking john oliver, guardian etc. etc. gobshites. makes me sick. what she's essentially saying is to abolish the capitalist system which is fine by me since i have no stock in it, but how on fucking earth is it gonna happen? it's like that green new deal, fucking 14teen page pamphlet full of vague bullshit. it's not like five year plan or ten point program or anything like that. what i see all the time is just people wanting to have their cake and eating it. but the implications of what she's saying would be sitting on top of some fjord eating lentil dishes and listening to the howling of the wind, like some knut hamsun vitalist paradise. again, may be a fine idea but.... everyone is clueless. plus when the fake left gets bored of saving the planet (which inevitably will happen) the right may take the idea over very easily, like you have steve bannon going on about class-struggle and disenfranchisement of the working class, and hitler was a vegetarian blah blah blah. as long as the logic of gestell will prevail the system is just gonna grow bigger and bigger, because it cannot not grow, it's a oxymoron. all i'm saying that no one CAN'T think it through, except madmen like john zerzan or ted kaczynski or nick land or someone deranged like that. i just don't see how can anyone be attracted by this kind of empty sloganeering and emotionalism and moralism, especially in this point in time. she's sort of appealing to rationalism through irrational means, like that boat ride was a good example. sorry, but it's hard not to be diogenes regarding this farce.
