Holy shit. Someone named Isabel Fall took "I sexually identify as an attack helicopter" as a writing prompt and produced one of the most fabulous cyberpunk, post-human, trans-human mindfucks I've read in a long time. This is extremely my shit
I also took some proper photos with the 5D4: https://www.flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/albums/72157712617997423

Today we channelled @sophia and visited some ducks!
fun fact, anyone can talk about magic the gathering by just making up a bunch of bullshit. there's too many,,, no one can prove you're bluffing
the problem with goblin aggro in the current micro extended format is the curving on multicolor commitments and how badly it's countered by tempo in the meta
see? it's impossible to prove whether *i* don't know what im talking about or *you* don't
Current status: At the Microsoft Store getting my nearly-four-year-old original-gen Elite controller with the grips-coming-off problem replaced. They don't have any of the original controllers anymore but they said I could pay the $50 difference between the RRP of the original and the new one and get a brand-new Elite 2! 🎉
"I'm a leftist, of course i'm not racist!"
This is whiteness and supremacy kicking back. This is you perpetuating it without realizing it. Because instead of taking the time to step back outside of your self, sitting down, shutting up, and listening to POC when they point out how you are perpetuating harm, you are actively trying to be the "winner" and prove how "good" and "moral" you are.
When you get called on your shit, and your immediate reaction is from a place of "standing up for yourself" or proving the accusatory problem wrong, instead of listening and genuinely aiming to be better and put in the mental and emotional work it takes to change your thinking and behavior, on a literal subconscious fucking level, then your leftism is one that is chained down by the very things you claim to be against.
I think there is a curse within leftist spaces where white people can't possibly see themselves as perpetuating racism, and so when they get called on something, especially when its by a person of color, the reaction is immediately aggressive defensiveness in place of what should be self-reflection.
"You're calling ME racist? I donate to so many charities! I've gone to rallies! I've been calling out people who use the N word for years! Theres not a racist bone in my body!"
This is the face of someone who, for the first time in the six years we've had him, saw people on the TV and had to bark at them. (Specifically Tom Allen and Rob Beckett on 8 Out Of 10 Cats). It must have been some specific angle, but I unpaused it and it completely startled him and he jumped back and barked even more!
i'm gonna say this in the gentlest way possible: i think a lot of you need to learn to shut the hell up for a second, especially when a marginalized person is telling you what they think about something. it's exhausting to watch people step on rakes over and over on here especially when it comes to issues of race
