Not sure why you thought this straw man was a good idea, but I did not say that literally ANY trans individual would make a better actor than Halle Berry. Also, to compare portraying “an American” to portraying the complex emotional process that accompanies transitioning from female to male in today’s world is about Read more

I wouldn’t make official rules around these things, but I’m not aware of there being a general history of erasure of non-trans people and actors so I don’t think I would have an issue with that within that context. Read more

Imagine thinking that your personal interest in wanting to understand transitioning somehow justifies that you should get (or even pursue) the role over someone who already understands it and would therefore do a much better job than you. The fact that those words were spoken by a woman of color is even more Read more

“It’s not that the companies are not popular, it has to do with the way the finances were structured. Many have been forced to borrow a lot of money and suddenly, due to COVID, they can’t pay their debts,” he said. “It’s an issue of profitability.” Read more

I have a friend who had their first baby via donor at 40 and then met someone and had a second baby naturally at 42. I also know women who struggled with fertility in their 20s and never had their own kids. There are so many paths to take, but I also get that it’s hard when we are taught from the youngest age that Read more

Thank you! It horrifying to constantly hear people mention this as a reason to have children. What the fuck. I have a child and would never think that she has an obligation to take care of me when I am older. Would be nice to have a regular visitor or someone to chat to, but that’s not on her. Read more

I’m less thinking about mass civil unrest and more concerned with whatever exit plan the GOP themselves would also have to protect themselves, profiteer off of the remains of the country they are leaving behind, and maybe take a few more chances to screw over minorities on the way out. If they’ve no longer got to Read more

Uh okay, well I work in corporate strategy and you still need to plan what to do when the best case scenario happens - otherwise you can waste a good opportunity (at best) or manage to screw up your triumph (at worst). Biden and co would have to be absolute fools not to do that, and others here have commented that Read more

Oh it’s all worrying. I think I’ve already accepted the hideous potential happenings around the election itself and the fact that it won’t be free and fair and that Trump will question the legitimacy before and during the election in the chance that he loses. Read more

Yeah, agreed. If money is going to go to private schools then it probably should go to religious schools as well, but the more sensible approach would be to not have public money go to non-public schools. Read more

That totally makes sense and I think I just confused myself! Appreciate you explaining it to me haha.

I also want her to spend the money, although in buying expensive horses she just gave that money to other people who already have tons of money. Hopefully some working class ranch hands got hired out of this at least.

I’ve read your chain of issues. I just get to a point where I decide that the perceived injustice is not a situation where I want to do something that is “likely to get people fired” (your words) over. The fact that this makes you think I would be the asshole compared to the person who is going to willingly get people Read more

Yeah okay, figured that’s what it was. It was the “closer to London” comment that threw me off, as I’m pretty sure it’s not. Maybe I read it too literally!

I want good service and I definitely want what I paid for. But for me it’s a meal and a bit of money, so it would take a special kind of personality to think that’s potentially worth someone’s livelihood as punishment for not doing what I want. Read more

I cannot drink Coke without ice in it. I’ll take my ice cubed, crushed, whatever. But if there’s no ice I will cancel my order or give my drink to someone else. (Probably wouldn’t tweet about it and shame the restaurant though, because honestly who fucking cares.)
