Whenever I wake up in the middle of the night on account of bad food choices, I think of scrooge raging about mustard causing his ghostly encounters. Would much rather be chilling with ghosts thanks to that last slice of pizza.

important to note that last week Alexis Kennedy, writer on sunless seas, fallen london and cultist simulator was *also* exposed to be a fucking creep last week, though i missed anyone talking about it. Meg Jayanth, writer of 80 Days, wrote about it here:

The UK Ministry of Justice revised guidelines today stating that all trans women without a correct gender birth certificate will be detained in male prison for two weeks before a panel decides if they're woman enough to be transferred to female population - based on an assessment of their body, "virility and strength". Ie they want to know how well you pass, naked.
I'm stating this first because this is what's acutely in my mind today while i wrote this next part.

If previous experiences and/or your own inclinations have made it difficult for you to justify/enjoy sex, you aren't alone and you deserve respect.
She's autistic and has been struggling to balance her responsibilities with the things she enjoys. Her enthusiasm is one of her best qualities, but lately she insists that she can't like anything without it becoming an "obsession" that gets in the way of other things.
Consequently, she's become afraid to have an interest in anything at all. Does anyone know some autism-supportive resources to help her?

Really need to find a way to get my brain to not launch into hardcore negative self talk whenever I'm scolded (or to at least shut it down quickly). There is something about being told I've broken a rule that really gets the negativity going. Not "oh, I'm so embarrassed!" more like, "just not existing would be a lot easier. I'm such a worthless pos."
If anyone has dealt with similar issues and has recommendations/techniques/resources that work for them, I'm all ears.

There's like this whole co-opting brand of whiteness, whether it be boomers retiring and buying an RV, or hippie trust fund kids in a VW bus going cross country. They continually refer to themselves as"gypsies".
That's a slur for the roma people, and I'd like to point out there has been growing violence and murder against the romani with the rise of white nationalism in europe, so yeah, stop using it in your vernacular

Randomly thought about how many times I've seen men talk about how humbling nature can be in the context of them doing shit like opposing the tide or going around Cape Horn the wrong way in adverse conditions.
That's what it takes to get some people to start thinking about respect, and that's just... a lot.
