How much you combine or separate will depend on the couple.

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @focusedspender I totally agree with you: (i) my version of “macho” means my partner has the financial means to leave me at any time and her presence is ideally financially voluntary; (ii) contribution to a common fund based on our communal needs is like renewing vows of togetherness

Sua'ad (Daughter of Frantz Fanon) [Ajairah1] It took me a depressingly long time, but I finally came to understand the deep racism inherent in the assumption that non-African people somehow know better than us what African people need.

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 there is a PBS Nova documentary called «Dawn of Mankind» which links the white South African origin of the Killer Ape Theory with Kubrick’s ape scene in «2001»; neither Kubrick or that South African dude from WWI are particularly racist but they were scientifically wrong

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 both of these classic white liberals needed «human nature» to be violent and a little rapey like most thought leaders today; without this military-industrial conceptual model of human nature, patriarchal imperialism becomes bizarre and weird and the whole shit house goes up

the kinte space [KinteSpace] @Ajairah1 instead what is weird is being «evolved» from relatively peaceful, vegetarian proto-humans—what is bizarre is being from East African high civilizations lasting for thousands of matriarchal generations without the concept of war—actual humanity is alien by design
