Nudity, renaissance art
This is in my art history textbook and how the fuck am I supposed to view this as a dying man or “the arts and the human soul in bondage” ??? this is some horny shit. This is a thirst trap or a decent quality dick pic someone sends a potential hookup when they ask for nudes, dont anyone fucking dare tell me Michelangelo was straight when he sculpted this shit
Red Hat is making a commitment to help make open source a truly inclusive space and our action plan to eradicate problematic language from our practices and vocabulary.
thinking about my political adolescence and how hard i fell for the idea that you need to be neutral on subject matter and support some kind of general heuristic (socially liberal, economically conservative, whatever) instead of just saying outright
"different things require different solutions it is actually incredibly dumb to be ideologically committed to a solution before you've encountered the problem"
So happy to share with you: the first scifi story I've ever sold, appearing today in Strange Horizons!
- cryogenic exoplanets
Should probably get a wriggle on getting my hair dyed neon green for the Refugee Action fund-raiser I did (it passed £500! Woo!)
If anyone wants to help push it up to £750 I'll make a Lemming costume and dress like that for work for a full week btw, just saying. DM for the link if that's your thing
I'm not on Telegram: it is just another centralized proprietary social network. Still, it is important to remember that it is the only Russian social platform that isn't owned by Yuri Milner, one of the three major pre-IPO investors in Facebook (along with Palantir founder Peter Thiel and Mitch McConnell's brother-in-law Jim Breyer). Wish journalists mentioned it more often when covering Telegram and Durov.
You are not defined by your worst moment. If a person loses their temper and does something bad that isn’t their true self coming to the surface. That’s not what a human is. A human is a system that responds to inputs. Load enough trash into the intake and the motor will kick. The idea that a person is just a bunch of layers of obfuscation on top of a core of darkness is Freudian pseudoscience.
A desperate begpost, boosts +
I hate to do this, especially now, but I have no other option.
This is my biggest debt repayment every month (around £250)
When I got laid off due to covid, I got a payment break for 3 months, but I can't extend it.
This is the total debt remaining, about 4 monthly payments worth - but I can't afford it when I'm not working. I don't know what to do, or when I'll be working again.
Any help would be appreciated 💛
and we see this, like, a lot. the moment bad actors get a handle on how to use social justice language, they immediately set out to warp it and make it meaningless. "problematic", "toxic", "cancel", hell even half the people i know don't know what black face actually is. it gets thrown around so carelessly that people get whipped up into a rage over charcoal and clay face masks but still struggle to understand why Ariana Grande or the Kardashians have been accused of black face lmao
