Linguistic prescriptivism is mid-key classism. Outside of actual grammar classrooms and graded written papers where conciseness is key, people correcting other people’s grammar is never done in good faith. It’s always an attempt belittle or demean someone else for the education they had or their mental faculties. Read more

I’m pretty sure you can do a lot of the banned stuff on twitter. At least, I have no problem finding pornography or racy twitter handles/names. Read more

I feel like the CDC should just take Florida at their word and launch a massive investigation into the outbreak of viral pneumonia happening alongside COVID. It’s effectively Skinner aurora-borealis-ing the COVID fire.

Confederates aside, it’s a show that might have done better today than back then as there’s a slew of great shows out there that leaned into heavy seralization and have the faith of their networks in spite of low ratings (which are the new norm),that’s where Whedon shined(shone? shinned?).

I can see arguments for Washington. And with Jefferson’s role in the founding of the USA, I almost can see a reason. But fuck Columbus. If anything there should be an eternal burning in effigy of Columbus.

Isn’t “critique that is fair” just another way of saying respectability politics? Because all the dragging I saw was about his push for diversity while wholeheartedly still supporting the crimes bill in the 90s that’s responsible for a lot of the militarization of the police.

And while obviously I’d love to get this tool out of office, I think it’s more that GOP operatives are realizing that they’ll not only lose the presidency but also the senate if Don continues with his shenanigans.

What’s ironic is that so many Conservatives ran to Parler for a hug box, which has its own TOS and has been banning leftists for mocking Conservatives on the platform.

Most leftists and anti-authoritarians also tend to shit talk Democrats, though. By leftists I mean medicare for all, open borders and universal suffrage.

While true, the 30 Rock episodes that I remember with blackface also were making similar points. Jenna and Tracy doing raceswapping to see who had it worse in the world was denounced in-universe by people that knew better, and it only served their egos. The live episode was even more pointed about the use of black Read more

You’re reading it way too hard. The virus causes an immune response. The immune response has been partially responsible for some of the more severe cases (cytokine storms, see Pandemic Flu in 1918 that was killing relatively healthy young adults).

Yeah, as a gay man I’m used to understanding gay subtext in genres where it would be foreign. Dumbledore’s relationship with Gindelwald seemed less romantic and more like a close platonic male relationship that got coded as gay because Jo doesn’t understand that those kinds of relationships exist without “OMG, they’re Read more
