US news, gun violence prevention Show more
NYC had the first shooting free weekend in 25 years.
>Pollock attributed the decline in part to cooperation with federal authorities in prosecuting domestic violence offenders for weapons possession.
You mean to tell me that preventing people with a history of violence from possessing a gun prevents more violence? craaaaaazy.
The rest of the country needs to take note.
There is a cute app called "monster girl maker" and I used it to make a monster version of myself.
I created "meskarune" as a character/fictional self insert in middle school. Half human, half demon with purple and black hair, gold eyes, venomous fangs, a prehensile tail, claws and pointed ears.
The monster girl creator version isn't exact, but still fun/cute. I added an eye patch because I'm blind in one eye in rl.
Maybe I should try to find and post old drawings of "meskarune".

"A Letter to White Women Who Support Brett Kavanaugh"
I haven't written anything about Kavanaugh, but its difficult. I'm horrified. I feel angry, enraged, and also that the inevitable will happen and this man will sit on the supreme court. Women are going to be harmed because of the decisions he will make. And privlegded white women will support this because they are given social advantages for doing so.

An anonymous lawyer close to the White House told Politico, “If somebody can be brought down by accusations like this, then you, me, every man certainly should be worried.”
Me: Time to castrate congress in the midterms
The New Yorker dropped a piece today on Linus Torvalds and the sexist culture of abuse within Linux. Turns out Linus's apology came after they contacted him for comment. https://www.newyorker.com/science/elements/after-years-of-abusive-e-mails-the-creator-of-linux-steps-aside
Shout out to all the folks that donated some funds when I went away for a couple of days.
I'm not really ready to go into what all is going down in my life right now, but know every single dollar really helps right now.
These random kindnesses really keep me going. You have no idea how it helps to motivate even in the dark times.
I added a twitter widget and .ics calendar file parsing to the main arch women website :D
You can see it live at https://archwomen.org
There is a bug with the calendar events display that is happening on production but not development I have to figure out. the br's should be rendered html and not escaped, but I'm 99% of the way done.
