random other tapestries ive done semirecently
@torie and, obviously, the ability to produce medicine doesn't rest in the pharmaceutical companies; it preëxists them. what they do is act as a barrier on what kind of research gets done, what drugs and treatments are actually offered, who gets to manufacture them, and so on. if access to medicine & healthcare were a right & not a privilege, they couldn't make a profit. the broader moral principle here is that denying something necessary to avoid harm is the same as doing harm
@torie basically my viewpoint here is that pharma companies, even the parts of the industry that do manufacture medicines and vaccines and so forth, do not make money from providing those things, but from restricting access to them. they don't profit when people are healthy, they profit when they're ill. its the scarcity they generate by monopolising access to the means of health that allows them to make a profit by selling medicine that people need to live or function at 1000% markups or w/e
no shade to furries yall are fine its just a very very weird thing to do on a work call imo

Ppl will be like “gender is a spectrum!!!” And then imagine the spectrum is literally just a straight line
