So what does it take then? Only a sincere belief in one’s gender? Can I just not change anything about my body, not have any genetic reason for doing do, and not change anything about my look and just ‘be’ a woman because I say so? Read more

They aren’t worthless. They are pretty valuable to me. Plus, I did have some appraised and they were worth about 30 - 40 each, depending. Read more

Hush was great, and the element of the deaf protagonist was novel, interesting, and well implemented as a plot device. Really good movie.

I love horror/thriller movies. They are my favorite genre. But, like many women, I’ve been sexually assaulted. It’s hard to find a good horror movie that does not involve the sexual assault of a woman. I’m not sure why; it’s such a lazy ass trope that is used entirely too often. Read more

the supreme irony of the puppies is that by pitching a hissy fit about all the damn liberals and SJWs in their science fiction, they’ve helped highlight the problem of representation at the Hugos, and as a result people who weren’t getting the kind of attention they deserved rallied together with a lot of passionate, Read more

This is a wonderful piece, and you sound like a great brother. But — as someone who understands the power of certain words, and how they’re used, you should get this — I wish you hadn’t used the phrase “confined to a wheelchair” multiple times. My wheelchair doesn’t have straps or locks that keep me from moving; Read more

I understand his point about how well Rhodes works as the inciting incident for this story between these particular characters, and I feel sorry that his story isn’t going to be judged inside a vacuum... But we do not live in a vacuum. Instead we are in a world where this terrible trope is used again and again. While Read more

So, I’ve told this story before but I hang out in the grays. I’ve had many students who didn’t know they had to file taxes when they had a job. I always tell them to file especially because they will get most of it back as they didn’t make a lot. Read more
