Good stuff in the world
A friend of mine started a Gofundme to raise the $ to legally change her name and gender designation in her state on Friday afternoon. By yesterday evening, 8 of her friends had raised the whole thing. Granted, it wasn't the amount of money one needs to have cancer treatment or anything, but that 8 people could quickly make the life of one of our friend's easier and safer in this political climate gives me hope.
@KevinCarson1 It's the worst when your heroes turn out to be dipshits. My really sincere condolences at this difficult time in your life.
@tcql David Clarke is the world's biggest projectionist, and I include that worthless piece of shit sitting in the White House who thinks he's great.
Cool job posting (not mine)
Apparently, the Mary Sue is hiring an assistant editor. I feel like there are probably, oh, a thousand people on here who would be great for this job. Doesn't indicate pay but might be worth checking out. https://www.themarysue.com/assistant-editor-hiring/
don't get me wrong, i'm not saying conservatism is bad
it's is more of a social cancer reproducing itself until tragedy, egoistically and jealously crushing every single thing trying to be better or different, and responsible for nearly everything wrong in the world. some vestigial inhuman instinct some people have a hard time handling.
A friend of mine teaching a playwriting class posted this from their textbook and I love it.
@CobaltVelvet After working in the arts in New York for a decade, I'm almost inclined to agree... but most of the talented, shitty people are cis white men with money, and are thus pretty well protected from discovery of theft or hackery, because no one is doing the investigating on the presumption that they're just Geniuses, Actually.
