Oh ah, FYI, I tend to follow anyone who interacts with me, 'cause I figure I probably will enjoy interacting with people who thought things I said were worth interacting with. If you wanna deny that I won't hold a grudge. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Maybe people just have trouble separating hating a thing someone did and hating the person? I find that rather concerning though, for discourse in general...

I very cautiously came out to a friend on Second Life and she thought it was hilarious because she thought her profile made it clear that she was trans too. (It was not, to me anyway.)

Trans people how did you meet your first transgender friend?

Do you all just use "hated" in a much less intense way than I would? 'cause I absolutely cannot imagine staying in a relationship with someone I hate. I can't even imagine speaking to someone I hate.

Outside of the "it's ok to hate your spouse" (which I honestly find viscerally revolting) it does have some pretty ok advice.

However, it cites people who provide relationship counseling which does not lead me to believe they have any systematic understanding of functional relationships. One does not need to seek relationship counseling when you're happy and good at managing conflict.

It's a study of straight people and while I'm tempted to snark about "are the straights ok" I've seen enough queer folk in shitty relationships to not think there's that much of a difference there, from 10,000 feet anyway.

I find it a bit concerning that this is trying to say that marital HATRED is normal. I mean ... um. I know I know, I struggle to hate people who definitely deserve it, but still.

Someday I'm gonna write some althistory/cyberpunk fiction where instead of UNIX, PCs and TCP/IP, the computer world is dominated by an interconnected PLATO and Minitel systems.

A friend of mine is in a pretty rough spot and needs help getting to safe housing. If you have a dollar or two, please consider helping.

They are such a kind person and have such a big heart, and could really use the assistance! gofundme.com/f/donate-to-get-c

I'd also note, if you're freaking out, there are full copies of all the fic on FFNet that are complete as of ~2020. If worse comes to worse, there are some options out there. Recent fic though, definitely crosspost.

PSA: There is no evidence that FFNet is going down. (There is no way a site of its scale is being paid for years in advance y'all. That's just way too big a chunk of change.) But DO copy your stuff to AO3. It's a non-profit run by the users of the site, with a mission to archive.

FFN/Fanfiction dot net is dying. If you remember *any* old FF dot net fics you really loved, nowโ€™s the time to save them.

The best way to see Van Gogh's "Starry Night" is to stare at the center of the spiral for 20 seconds and then look at the painting.

Any call for liberation without intersectionality is a call for a new group of masters, the dream of the second and third tiers of privilege to join in the top echelons. It is always bullshit. Feminism without intersectionality gave us white supremacist, classist/corporate, and trans-exclusionary feminism. Queer liberation without intersectionality resulted in white supremacist queer spaces and movements. Anticolonialism without intersectionality became neocolonialism. Accept nothing but full solidarity. Fuck the fuck off with baby steps, patience, and trickle-down justice. If you're not for liberation for all you're only another master-in-waiting and a user, fuck you.
