Uh. What do you do when the post you pinned to your profile is out of date? I guess you make a follow-up post with the correction, pin it and hope people notice?

Anyway, uh, in the above post, I describe myself as "cishet", but I figured out I'm actually pansomethingual? Only in the last, like, 8 months or so. I'm still a white cis man, so the thing about Privilege Mountain is still pretty accurate, though. But, yeah. :pansexual_flag:

Went for a bike ride with the 8yo. I asked, “Do you think you’re up for a big ride?” “I think I can do it, Daddy,” they said. And they were right! We rode just over 6 miles. We had to take a ~15 minute break in the middle because I forgot I had a short meeting. My kiddo was a hit on the call and we looked at trees and a creek while I listened in.

I’m so proud and excited for this skill they’ve unlocked! We’re gonna ride all over the place together.

Anybody know any high-brow, sophisticated type fart joaks? Lay 'em on me.

Me: Sprout, why don't you come and work on some number stuff instead of just playing all day?
5yo: Because I don't _like_ this school!

Holy cow. Remember the Dakota Access Pipeline? So many lifetimes ago? Which got AOC on the path to the House? The Standing Rock tribe just won a major victory; the Army Corps of Engineers was wrong to go forward without considering their concerns, court says.
