I am going to livestream as I read comments on my video. I might cry. I might delete people. It might be awful.
So there I was, trying to buy a miniature platinum sword so I could cast Arcane Sword, when a messenger burst into the shop and exclaimed that a competitor down the road had dropped his prices on the trinkets - only 240 gold pieces! By the time I turned back around, the shopkeeper had sighed and marked down his price to compete, at 239 gold pieces...
until pretty fucking recently, the same places that were banning gay men's blood from donation were also banning trans women's blood and the partners of trans women.
some of them want trans women's blood now, but are still imposing discriminatory measures against gay men's blood.
sorry. not fucking happening. you can have my blood donations if and when you lift the ban on gay men's blood entirely. no wait period is acceptable. fuck off
Unsurprisingly, this job makes me want to abolish land ownership.
Coronavirus, Elon Musk
So it turns out that the "ventilators" that Musk was bragging about donating to hospitals (and his fanboys were praising far and wide) turn out to be surplus CPAP machines. Which, if adapted by already overworked hospital staff who probably don't have the parts anyway, can INCREASE the spread of infection.
I'll say it again, every single thing he's done has been a publicity stunt to make him look heroic. Every god damn thing.
autism awareness shit
reminder that a lot of anti-autism groups, curebies, and "experts" have recently started appropriating ideas from neurodiversity paradigm
don't fall for that, for their pretty words or updated logos, they're still a for-profit industry aiming to eradicate us or sell traumagenic snake oil therapies to confused parents
listen to what the autistic community (ie autistic people) has to say, we have figured out a lot, decades before the "experts"
covid phishing, not a joke
Reminder to keep an eye out and not take strangers contacting you at face value.
This morning we got six calls by scammers trying to figure out who lived here, arguing that because offices were closed, social security and such had to be figured out over the phone. (With them! How helpful that they contacted us out of the blue!)
I saw a report that online phishing has also gone up ~350% since the start of the outbreak. Keep an eye out.
Trying to not to be an asshole, except to Fascists. They deserve it.
