Heads-up: this is a private, personal account. I ask that people @ me before follow-requesting so I find out if I'm comfortable being open in my locked posts in front of them. Please look over my profile and pinned toots and tell me:

- Where you found my account from,
- Who you are, and
- Why you are interested in following.

You need to understand what lets me feel safe and tell me enough about you that I do, but your toot doesn't have to be elaborate as long as it /does/ tell me; "someone boosted one of your toots and your account looks cool - I'm an autistic trans furry too, can I follow" would still likely show enough.

(If you are seeing this pinned toot because I copy+pasted the above into your DMs, thank you - I appreciate your going to this effort.)

As with most philosophies, this can’t really be proven or disproven; there’s no sense trying to argue someone out of the opinion that Phil is an asshole for not acting the way famous people are supposed to act – or, crucially, for not acting the way *we* would act in his place. This is a popular argument because it’s an argument you can’t lose – no one can empirically prove whether Phil is or isn’t an asshole. What gets elided in this argument is the assumption that famous assholes – people who don’t act the way famous people are *supposed* to act – deserve to be *punished*.

Long thread‡️

Is there anyone here who bikes and would be willing to answer a few questions for a paper I’m writing?

LBs - beepboop.one/@Alexis/103251923 - has me thinking idly about what music I'd like to lucky-ten-thousand ( m.xkcd.com/1053/ ) for people, should it come up.

Probably Tracy Chapman (because I love her music) and Joni Mitchell (because I grew up surrounded by her songwriting) - and I guess The Who and Paul Simon and probably Dire Straits?

I guess this is a blanket offer of YouTube links for anyone who has never heard of one or more of these artists/bands, and I'll try to pick out "this is why [artist/band] is important to me" tracks for you. No obligation to take me up on it or to like or even try anything I suggest.

*looks at folders of old MP3s on zir hard drive*

...gosh, I guess I should maybe include R.E.M. and The Police, too? No promises but I'll try.

to be clear, I don't mean "don't be angry," I mean

the response to this stuff is so often just people being mean and empty and hollow

Literally: Find a way to engage with the world that is BETTER than that.

i wish the response to a prominent young person not knowing about culture from literal multiple decades before they were born was, like

"let's spend the day sharing the music we want young people to know about"

instead of it all being focused on old idiots being angry assholes

Hi
It’s good that you exist
You existing is a good thing
It’s as simple as that, you don’t have to do anything special to deserve that
Wolves are glad that you exist
