just caught up on my listening requests. seriously, people, you have to let me know, 'cause i'll never notice otherwise! (and sorry, everyone i just accepted requests from, for the delay)
not that i get many follower requests anyway, but if you do put one in and i haven't noticed it for about 24 hours, @ me; ive heard they don't pop up as notifications (strange design decision, that) and i won't remember to check...
plurality, selfies, total body dysphoria Show more
i'll say it now - hell will freeze over before i ever post a selfie
not because i think i'm so hideously unattractive or whatever
just because the attractiveness or otherwise of the person whose image you would all see in that selfie is moot - because *that's not what i look like*
(on any level, for any value of 'i')

in a world that made sense, Boris Johnson's declaration, in the face of a parliament that has repeatedly refused to permit a no-deal Brexit, should disqualify him from the leadership. you just can't have a prime minister vowing to act against the will of parliament; that undermines parliamentary sovereignty, which is the only constitutional basis the UK has for the rule of law.
...but we don't live in that world.
There has to be a tiny black hole at work in the center of this thing :D

To clarify for those who need it: terf was coined by cis radfems to distinguish radfems with a tran problem from radfems who thought being a trans woman was potentially radical and feminist as fuck.

philip alston thought that the UK govt's response to his report might be a spoof.
he was close. it's our government itself that's a spoof. we're living in a satire constructed along the lines of "what's the cruellest set of policies that can be imposed on just fewer than 50% of the population, and what's the least competent the government doing the imposing can appear to be, without causing them to rise up and demolish the seats of power by hand?"
Resignation does not undo the tremendous harm done to many within the UK.
May's Government has caused immense harm to disabled people, EU nationals, and many others.
Don't now start claiming that she "tried her best" and was "dealt a losing hand". She campaigned for that hand.
re LB: read the whole thread, it's kinda brilliant
And that is how I became a legend in the Mormon community as a trickster trying to temp the young missionaries away from their work and down the path of unlimited pizza and alcohol.
