"I sexually identify as an attack helicopter" was her debut

could you fucking imagine the second work, the third? augh

@SuricrasiaOnline This shit was recently relitigated on Twitter, complete with that Neon Yang dipshit doing a big self-important not-apology and a bunch of trans people signing onto some ridiculous non-aggression treaty, and I was big mad for like a week.

@Zero_Democracy @SuricrasiaOnline I was listening to Emily vdW explaining what went on (she wrote the big Vox article with the interview and was on a podcast to discuss the background with a little more freedom and less editing) and I was fucking seething the entire way through about the result of the whole thing. Just red-hot angry.

@SuricrasiaOnline @Zero_Democracy EvdW was incredibly gentle and very careful throughout, it was the events she recounted that made me just go off the Angry Tangent.

@SuricrasiaOnline What frustrates me to no end is how obvious it is that people only got as far as the title before getting angry and instead of taking in new information that could change their minds they just doubled down.

There would be so much more absolutely brilliant media in the world if trans women didn't get harassed into oblivion the second they attained even a little bit of fame.

@SuricrasiaOnline One of the things I dislike most about the Humans: Outgroups don't learn compassion and empathy from being harmed, they just wait for a turn to be the ingroup and kick someone else.

@SuricrasiaOnline I was totally unaware of the fallout that came from that story. It was an absolutely brilliant piece of science fiction and more of what we need in that realm.

Now I'm pissed.
