reminder: the internet is real life
- things you say here matter
- things you say here are being read by real people with real lives and real feelings
- you can support and utilize and manifest hegemonic systems of oppression with what you say here
- getting called out for saying something fucked up and responding with “puh-leeze, this is tumblr, not real life” is fucking bullshit and stop
While I recognize that my interpretation of a work is but one dish in the vast potluck that is lit. theory, if you try to tell me my potatoes are not welcome at a dinner you didn’t even plan, I will not hesitate to pour gravy down your shirt.
The sun isn’t bright just because I say it is. It just is. It was bright before I even knew the word for bright. I didn’t decide what it is, I acknowledged what it is.
You aren’t worth something just because I say you are. You just are. You were worth something before I even said anything. I didn’t decide that you are, I acknowledged that you are.
This is what I mean when I say “You are worth it.”
This is great.
Announcement times for referendum. Thankfully my area is one of the first so I won’t have to wait up too long.
The Aberdeen one might be a bit optimistic but the PA are usually spot-on. Augh, I’m tired and been getting insults from both sides today and DAMN, IT’S NOT SATURDAY TOMORROW AFTER ALL.
Signal boost for GamePhobias, a wiki-style website dedicated to categorizing games based on content and trigger warnings. Users can either view content warning categories to find games that do and don’t contain the triggering content, or search for specific games to see exactly what content warnings are attached to that title (as well as brief, almost exclusively non-graphic descriptions as to specific scenes/levels containing that content).
It’s a very, very new wiki (IIRC it launched late August) and so its offerings are very paltry right now, and I would seriously encourage anyone with experience with games, wikis, and/or both to contribute however they can.
