#introduction I'm trying out playvicious to see how it fits. My other account is email@example.com. I'm white; #queer and #genderqueer afab; casually jewish and seriously pissed. I live in #Canada.
Pronouns: he, she, and they are all fine. I like variety.
I want to write a free, copyleft book about how to thrive on low income in the USA, because all the books on personal finance give advice like "don't buy a latte every day," instead of "first, get your staples at the food bank, and *then* any other food via food stamps."
I've been writing an outline, and I need more sources. What books and links can you tell me about that are like more the food stamp example? (And please retoot!)
[ME]: *speaking to congress of superheroes* "Hey, so...what if...instead of reacting to villians...we solve the problems that create them?"
[SUPERHEROES]: *skeptical looks and murmuring*
[ME]: "Y'all superstrong types could help build houses and transport goods--hell, superman, you could carve cities out of solid rock; the rich playboys like Batman and Iron Man could share the wealth; Black Panther: we need some Wakanda technology; Dr. Strange: you could literally create unlimited energy--*superman disintegrates me w/ laser beam eyes*
The first Pride was a riot.
Trans women of color started the fight for queer liberation fifty years ago.
Today, queer immigrants, people of color and sex workers still face police violence.
No cops at pride.

Me: Okay, for the window of my office. You know how private investigators sometimes shorten it to "private i" and then have an eye painted on the window?
Window-sign painter, cautiously: Go on
Me: *Hands painter a business card that says "private dick"*
Painter: Oh hell no
Possibly unpopular opinion Show more
EvoPsych is a lie. None of the field's claims are verifiable and it's extremely often just used to justify bigotry and essentialist, binary views on gender. It's the phrenology of the modern era.

"The trouble with you humans is that you are so concerned with staying afloat. Go ahead, be gouged open by love. Gulp that saltwater, sink beneath the waves. You’re not a boat, you can go under and come up again, with those big old lungs of yours, those hard kicking legs."
From "On This, the 100th Anniversary of the Sinking of the Titanic, We Reconsider the Buoyancy of the Human Heart" by Laura Lamb Brown-Lavoie.
The whole poem is great, and it is here: http://media.virbcdn.com/files/5f/7098e210b7af4cd2-alight_2013.pdf
GoT question, not a spoiler Show more
Is there a cut of GoT with all the nasty dismemberments and crap cut out so that I can watch the acting and sets and costumes without getting fully traumatized?
Accountability/Redemption Show more
Running from that gauntlet is defending yourself when you should have been defending a more vulnerable person. Refusing to list specifically what you’ve done and own it is refusing to acknowledge harm and justice owed. We can talk about redemption when folks are ready to be vulnerable & own the violence they’ve perpetuated. I’m not hear to talk about somebody’s perceived right to not be dunked on.

I kinda hear this get thrown around a bit in the #MeToo n Racial Justice movements. What is the path forward for perpetrators? They’re called out, now what? You’re on film saying the N word or you were a predator in some way. They feel bad, now what? But that’s just it, they don’t feel bad, they’re not sorry. They’re just really embarrassed. There’s no way forward for someone who just wants to not be embarrassed anymore. Redemption is actions, humility, & sacrifice.
Misandry, nerdy humour, and frank talk about body parts.
Social is the primary social media platform for the forth coming fourth version of Play Vicious, a new initiative built to bring attention to the plethora of creative acts that don't get the shine they deserve.
