Listen i have nothing against asonics in principal; but it's those New Asonics i don't like. If you dont wanna believe in Sonic, that's fine, but it's this militant insistence that nobody believe in Sonic that's just obnoxious. Sonic is real, and if you wanna be agnostic about that or whatever, your loss 🙄 just leave me out of it

I had a dream in which I was interested in visiting Poland.
Poland is on my mental list of countries where it is a huge risk to my safety to visit there, because I'm visibly not-straight-or-cis AND visibly Polish. So it would be exceedingly dangerous for me to visit my ancestral homeland

My dearest Lulabelle,
I heard Pharrell Williams's "Happy" on the radio the other day, and for some reason that hit my brain tonight and I went and looked it up.
And I found myself thinking, "how can you - how can /anyone/ be genuinely happy when--"
And I stopped myself, because I'd internalized the equivalent of that dumb "if you're not outraged, you're not paying attention" bumper sticker. "There are shitty things going on so I'm not ALLOWED to be happy."
And let's be blunt: h o l y s h i t is that a toxic attitude.
LET PEOPLE BE HAPPY.
If you think "But X is going on--" then I want you to add the word DESPITE to your vocabulary.
LET PEOPLE BE HAPPY.
I'm gonna be happy. DESPITE.
Considering becoming a patron of the arts? Especially to artists who like drawing that real, real gay stuff and also know how a nose works? Allow me to suggest the Patreon of @serenityfails, which you can find over here: https://www.patreon.com/serenityfails
Here's some commissions I've gotten from them in the past. While way more involved than your typical Patreon reward, I need you to see how well they drew my handsome sons.

also there's no need to show ads for pg13 movies when I've selected a sesame street video?? is that so difficult to program??
i wish youtube didn't show ads with slow-moving greased women in bathing suits when I'm just trying to show my toddler craft videos. like an "I'm watching this with small children" button
I'm trying to shield her from being exposed to male-gaze-type media before she's able to have conversations with us about it, so that she doesn't perceive it as normal when she does encounter it
No, mom, I'm not microblogging the tiny banalities of my life. 🙄 I'm serially publishing my memoir on the internet.
Brain scans dont determine if you are trans or not. Only you know. I get a lot of trans folks are desperate for some kind of validation but not only is this not scientific, its dangerous. Its not scientific because they get things backwards.
Being trans isnt caused by brain differences. The brain differences are sometimes caused by being trans. I know thats hard to understand but thats kinda how it is and being trans doesnt always mean there will be brain differences.
So its not any kind of meaningful test.
Its dangerous because you are handing power over who is and isnt trans to people who are not you.
@Siphonay i'm looking at p. 14 of "how to read donald duck" (which you should definitely read if you like the comics) and it says walt disney didn't care about the comics, only about his movies and amusement parks. disney even stopped publishing comics between 1980-1984. also talks about comics being more accessible than movies or tv in poorer countries
