HELLvetica. Like helvetica, but with like, much shittier kerning for Halloween.
Never excuse old men for having bigoted views just because they come from a different time. Take a look at how much more progressive the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is than their views. It's from 1948, so not only is it from before the civil rights movements that have been going on around them for their whole lives, the UDHR is from around the time they were born, or earlier. The "different time" they came from was one where the UN agreed that people shouldn't be discriminated against by race, sex, nationality, or anything. Bigoted views are not simply old-fashioned ways that people cling to, they're something else.
Anyway, the UDHR is one of my favorite pieces of writing ever. It's good to read through every once in a while.
My god the "Woman in lotus position" emoji is a perfect example of the Apple vs Google vs Microsoft design philosophies

Microsoft: The woman is lacking a lot of detail, and she's not even in the correct pose
This took a while for what was meant to be more of a rough sketch, but here's Scylla in "goddess" form. Seven separate bodies - human-sized - joined via extensible "necks" to the shoulders of a single giant one. Unlike in her small version, Scylla has full conscious control and coordination of all seven heads and sixteen(!) arms. She needs to be in this shape to use the more powerful forms of magic she knows - the ones that earn her the "Monster Goddess" title.

My brain has apparently settled upon the word "buttvapor" as my new gender and ethnicity neutral all-purpose slur of choice.
In keeping with the precedents set by my beloved queer millennial allies, I have decided that if this standard is right for me, it is hence objectively right and fully normative for all of us.
I do of course expect you all to adopt it immediately, lest I be forced to bust out the clap emoji on you buttvapors.
Gul Madred: "Now then, how many lights do you see?"
Picard: "Four lights." [he gets zapped] "Aaargh!!"
Gul Madred: "How can you be so blind? There are five lights. See? ...Uh-oh, wait... 1, 2, 3, 4... a-heh, whoops! One of 'em burned out. Uh, sorry about zapping you." [presses a button on the intercom] "Hello, maintenance?"
Weird cartoon turtle with three arms. Yig-ped!
