  1. Folks are in town for the weekend- sister showed up with my nephew First words out of the boy's mouth, no lie... "I wanna watch Duuune!" He's 43 months old, if I'm not mistaken about his birthdate Yes, he knows which one is "Duuune" and immediately pointed to the box art which was actually laying half-covered underneath a book. Pulled the disc out of my hand (creating smudge prints that I then had to clean off ) in his haste to put it in the PS4. I couldn't love this kid more if Muad'dib ordered me to. Fuck those witches and their breeding programs, my sister and her dweeby husband already produced a Kwisatz Haderach Seriously, this kid is 3.5 years old and can use Ridiculous, Awesome, and a host of other pretty complex words accurately. Literally just today, actually while I stepped into the bathroom to clean the Duuune disc I was speaking anecdotally to my mother in the living room the boy followed me and -after waiting politely for a break in the conversation- said "Jalen you use a lot of big words when you talk." And in a way that made it clear he was following the conversation, and comprehended through context what the words I was using mean. Nothing crazy, I'm not walking around like Sheldon Cooper when talking to my mother or nothing. But this kid And that's not to short-change his sister, who is sharp as a whip and gonna be a helluvan athelete in addition- this is just the Duuune thread And I know I'm not just talking up my own relations, because that sister had a school thing we went to this evening. Six and seven and eight year olds. And the 3.5 year old, my nephew, had more to say about what was going on than a single one of those kids. Had observations about what was going on and demanded a book from the fare. Not everything is salt
  2. "Problematic" is my FAVORITE NewSpeak word As in: "I don't know how to argue an actual point so I'm gonna Mad Libs a bunch of nouns and conjunctions (perhaps a verb-or-two) around the word problematic and accept hero-status amongst similarly idiot-brained individuals who confuse compassion with an inability to compromise. Because I live on Twitter."
  3. I'm trans. I played sports in Highschool, with the boys. I get embarrassed and ashamed at my fellow Ts for accepting trophies against competitors that they have a biophysiological advantage against. Full stop. That's not fair. No, people DO NOT transition just to compete in a field with an advantage... That's a sick and hateful argument and everyone knows it. But transitioning doesn't erase biological facts about male musculoskeletal development vs female musculoskeletal development. And no amount of memes or whining will change that- it's called real life I understand that that sucks. Being trans sucks sometimes and I -myself- would never want to accept a trophy against a sister of the world if I had an advantage that she could never possibly match. Being born male -especially having gone through male puberty- IS AN ADVANTAGE in physical contests. This is why we have sex-segregated sports fields. Sex- being a biological description of reproductive (overwhelmingly binary) capacities of animals Please, tell me I'm a self-hating creature who doesn't see myself as a woman (if not sexually female) after I "presented" on this forum for a decade explicitly as a woman. I love getting lectured about inconformity to NewSpeak and RightThink. It gives my art an extra bite for days afterwards.
  4. I recall that now. I always interpreted the character as being a victim of her own power. Like, it was more about the helplessness of "triggering" a rape just by touching someone for her... She's the victim of her powers. It was like an inversion of female empowerment commentary, at least that's what I always understood about it. Regarding the specific episode/interaction that you're talking about... I mean, victims of abuse are tragically likely to perpetuate abuse on others. This is a well-known thing: although previously overstated as far as percentages and whatnot... I know this personally. Doctors scared the fuck out of me and my sister with this fact and I'm not blaming them for the fact that I don't like to be touched and get very nervous when interacting in... situations. But I think it's brave and important writing to have characters/stories like you're describing. Forgiveness and understanding are underrated, not every character needs to be put down the moment they fail to overcome their failings - NOT AN EXCUSE FOR RAPE: AN ATTEMPT TO DISCUSS AN ARTISTIC DEPICTION OF NON-CONSENT REGARDING A CHARACTER WHOSE STORY IS LITERALLY ABOUT CONSENT/NON-CONSENT THERE'S A DIFFERENCE
  5. Ah, Misfits! I liked that one. Don't recall the rape you speak of, I watched just after it aired... Goddamn had to be like almost fifteen years ago now Anyway, my first exposure to both the Future Mrs. Catelyn Stark and, of course, the Future Mr. Ramsay Bolton. I literally stole the idea of pretending to smoke when I was in the Army from this show. "Smokers get all the breaks." Is what the kid says in the Nazi Future Dystopia storyline. I did that, irl! I'd buy a pack of blue camel crush's and it'd last me a month because I'd light the cigarette, puff once, and then it would go out while I stood there hanging out. Eta: I guess it only came out ten years ago. Felt longer.
  6. At some point in the last few months I was discussing makeup techniques with my shrink. I expressed that I've gotten good at it, but I don't actually have a foundation that matches my skin tone. At which point she said "Yeah, they don't really make one that's Casper-toned." So I've been looking forward to that sun too.
  7. How is that The Bad Batch, by the way? I've always had less-than-zero interest in the goings-on of clones outside the spectacular videogame Republic Commando (yo, they're printable soldiers... I just don't get what's supposed to be so interesting about them). The biggest insult to Star Wars, to my eye, has long been (seriously, a decade now!) how small Disney makes it feel. Star Wars was never small when George Lucas owned it. Never. I think about things like Knights of the Old Republic, with all the depth and moral complexity on display... and then I look at Disney and I can't help but be disgusted. They built a technological terror that they're too damn afraid to do anything with . I found out from a friend that Disney commissioned a book to explain the origins of the First Order (the villains from the Sequel Trilogy). And at the end of it, where the name comes from is essentially a pun... Like, they commissioned that and then put it in print In the words of one of the great orators of our time, "SAD!"
  8. 2 months later, update? Check all boxes that apply: [ ] - I made the best decision of my life! [ ] - Oh god, what was I thinking? [ ] - Writing is hard. [ ] - Actually, writing is really easy. Writing really well is hard. [ ] - Need help (no strings attached, just trying to be nice) from weirdo writing savant who can literally give away ideas/plots/theme-insights without creating a dynamic where the recipient feels like they're being impressed upon to do something other than their own root inclinations? [ ] - Fuck that weirdo, I got this through sheer spite alone if needs be! [ ] - When did I start drinking so much? ( If you don't check the last box you're not a real writer no matter how good your efforts turn out )
  9. I would like to draw attention to the disparity in response to the -preventable- derailment of a train spewing toxins (actually threatening lives/livelihoods/homes) and some Accounting Pirates tasting nature for the first time in their cushy fucking lives And I'm so over hearing about how "this isn't a bailout" already Last time I looked the FDIC insured up to a quarter-million... but I guess that's only for the non-millionaires right? Great to know
  10. Watched episodes 7 and 8 just now. One left. Show is aces. - Says a joker ( ) Regarding Messieurs Benioff and Weiss' (let's just say it) complete chuckle-fucking of their jobs-then-careers while in custody of Mr. Martin's work... (Bella Ramsey's)
  11. Reduce enough and the only thing that could possibly be real is whatever happens next. - 21st century solipsism Your youth are all regressed to input dependents. Even your outputs are just cries for reciprocation I may not like capitalism, but goddamn if I can't help but admire what it's done to us. Y'know, in an "it ain't MY children who're gonna burn" kinda way. Hidden advantages of being sterilized - too bad for my niece and nephew, but what kinda future were they lookin' at anyway?
  12. Was that a part of Dodd-Frank?????? HOW THE FUCK HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF THIS!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!? And here I thought my biggest issue with Democrats was the willful ignorance to airborne murder as a matter of convenience. Why?
  13. If I were born 4 years earlier I bet I could get elected by going to every state Trump won and just reading this article instead of giving "speeches". At the "debates", I'd just recite it from memory every time I was allowed to speak. You don't wanna know what my "platform" would be.
  14. Not a doctor: But it should be like that. It's supposed to be an acute-anxiety and as-needed chemical intervention. Doctors do no service to their patients when they prescribe them like anti-depressants. That being said, giving you 4 pills and telling you to fuck off isn't good medicine either. Hang in there. Well I mean that's your first, second, and third problem right there. Your friend is wise. And I know exactly what it's like to have a friend/family member subtly pushing you to comatose yourself rather than actually taking steps to understand or help.
  15. I was on that Klonopin for years Word of hard-earned wisdom: If Eminem raps about it, don't take it That being said. Getting to the place where you DON'T need sedatives/hypnotics is hard Worth it
  16. Shower, then 4th beer. We'll call it a negotiated cessation of alco-hostilities
  17. Watchu celebratin? I'm 3 Heinekens down and debating a 4th
  18. If I were Lamar Jackson. Or rather, if I had his talent/work ethic/ general-situation to combine with my own backstory/worldview... I'd decide that since the Combine is over or whatever? I would be rather over the idea of being traded for anything more valuable than the #32 overall pick. Just me though.
  19. I hate to be a bother like this, and if you can't help or can't be bothered. Don't bother But I just sprouted an anxiety -__- Like some kinda moron I clicked on some malware And, like, I clicked a button that said like I guess I'd give money to this cartel or something. If they, like, gave me whatever the thing was or something? But, like it was malware And that's whatever. It's just. I'm worried, because I'm not like a law person Do I have to... give them my money still? Even though it was malware?
