character design musing, back to not horny
@fluxom_alt "Wait, is he a weather guy or a meteor guy?"
"You'd be surprised how often they overlap in this line of work."
What terms might cover romantic attraction to people regardless of gender, but physical attraction predominantly to the opposite sex?
The latter.. some fantasy men and a handful of RL men are attractive to me, but mostly women? I don't know how much of that is due to outright fear of men/male sexuality.
Sesame Street, a show created for public access television to help kids from low-income families learn to read and write, is being put being a paywall which will prevent the kids who most need it from accessing it.
The past 50 seasons are also included in that so they can't be streamed anywhere else.
Pirate Sesame Street.
On Monday night I saw two guys on bikes emptying a bag out beside our house. Guessed a bag theft from a car or a mugging. What they abandoned turned out to be some very sensitive documents.
The police have still not contacted me back. In that time I've managed to trace the person who authored the documents and spoken to them on the phone.
If the docs aren't theirs, they'll still know who to pass them to.
The police are fucking useless.
I have to bind to stay hidden from my parents and because of health concerns from that I can't work.
I have a blood test in a week, on top of insurance, food, gas, meds and rent.
If you can give anything I'd deeply appreciate it, I really need the help.
using your social media clout to crowdfund your own bail is an interesting gameplay mechanic but I don't think I'd like to try it IRL
Last weekend to get your WINAMP pin. Kickstarter ends on Monday (and I'll finally stop yelling about it, i promise)
Fuck it, here's the current draft version of the workshop philosophy that's pushing Workbench Alpha, as best as I can personally put it.

@activationfxn The Hong Kong uprisings in 1967 and 1968, when unionization and worker discontent kicked up. Hong Kong cops lit the populace up with wooden baton rounds and tear gas before the British navy rolled in. Before that, British forces loaded shotguns with dowels or chopped segments of broomhandles during the Boxer Rebellion.
the capitalist class petitioned for the formation of police departments as a direct response to textile worker strikes in the early 1800s
Anti homeless sentiment
I still see people saying "if shelters don't require sobriety, we can't guarantee a clean, safe place for homeless people." Like, what if we just gave people housing and let them build a good life on that foundation instead of making people's shelter dependent upon them living our idea of a perfect life? It's a lot easier to build a clean, safe life with four walls and a roof than it is from the street level
Ableism and intelligence
@Irina It was kind of eye-opening to me how lazy it is to call people 'idiot' or 'stupid' when they make a mistake, instead of trying to understand _why_ they made the mistake.
Blaming all of Trump's problems on his intelligence is another example. It's unfair to people with actual mental disabilities who _aren't_ racist, sexist, self-obsessed bigots.
Ableism and intelligence
@Irina I also learned some really horrible things, like how IQ tests are basically invented as a way to discriminate against immigrants (“these people scored too low on this very fair and universal test I invented, so we're not going to let them into the country”), or how America forcibly sterilized hundreds of people whose IQs were deemed 'too low' barely a hundred years ago.
