This is a way to listen to changes to wikipedia. You are literally listening to knowledge being added to the world.
Pluck sounds are an addition, strings are subtractions, and the pitch says how how big the edit is. My heart shudders at this I love it so much.
- A TERF/Radscum
- An MRA
- Anti-self diagnosis
- A militant vegan
- Are a bigot (any of the isms and phobias)
- A bully to otherkin
- In reverse-racism
- In cisphobia
- In heterophobia
- That skinny shaming is just as bad as fat shaming
- FAAB trans people have it just as bad as MAAB trans people
- That I should stop reblogging about the police shootings because you think it’s ‘getting old’.
also add for me you don’t believe in the oppression of youth and you use ageist slurs, support the education system, and you support oppressive laws and think age defines someone and all that crap.
its a huge fucking trigger for me. just a reminder.
Um, you’re going to have to elaborate more on what you mean by “militant vegan” because in my experience it’s often used in the same way that “radical feminist” is when it’s used to discount the entire movement. When presented uncritically it’s kind of a red flag for me that someone is just trying to ignore speciesism or imply that anyone who takes marginalized animals seriously and is trying to get others to take them seriously must be “militant”.
Aside from the people who subsequently became my significant others, I haven’t had a non-family close person relationship in which I also interacted with the person regularly independently (as in, not at an outside-scheduled activity) since third grade.
It occurred to me fairly recently that the…Also reblogging this one (totally unrelated to rolequeerness) just because I found it interesting and I enjoy peoples’ analyses of their own brains, and because I thought some of the dynamics you described in here might be interesting tomaymay(who also struggles with feeling like they don’t have or don’t know how to make non-romantic-relationship friends.) I think some of their dynamics are different from yours, but there were also things here that resonated w conversations we’ve had. (And might for other folks who follow me also.) Anyway, I hope it’s OK that I reblogged your personal self analysis post. Thanks for sharing this. :-)
I can relate to parts of this. One problem I’ve run into is that, because I have a hard time initiating and maintaining friendships, is that the few people who end up deciding it’s worth putting in the effort to get close to me end up being kind of manipulative and looking to get something from me and it tends to end badly. I dunno, maybe that’s specific to me, but it’s really demoralizing.
Apparently not alot of people have warmed up to the created for TV show character Fish Mooney, played by the beautiful Jada Pinkett Smith. Some have written that she is out of place, and not in a usual position of mob boss for a person of her gender and race. Others have said that she is over the top, which is hilarious when we are talking about a villain who lives in the same city as Joker, Penguin, Riddler, & Killer Croc & Clayface. Maybe they would have been more comfortable if she was playing a maid, cook, or prostitute, or drug addict. So here is a history lesson for all of the people who are having a hard time taking Fish Mooney seriously. When then character was first introduced, I was instantly reminded of Queenie St. Clair.
"Stephanie St. Clair (1886–1969) was a female gang leader who ran numerous criminal enterprises in Harlem, New York in the early part of the 20th century. Despite resisting the interests of the Mafia for several years after Prohibition ended, she continued to be an independent operator never coming under mafia control.
She complained to local authorities about harassment by the NYPD, and when they paid no heed she ran advertisements in Harlem newspapers, accusing senior police officers of corruption. The police responded by arresting her on a trumped up charge, and in response she testified to the Seabury Commission about the kickbacks she had paid them. The Commission subsequently fired more than a dozen police officers.
After the end of Prohibition, Jewish and Italian-American crime families saw a decrease in profits and decided to move in on the Harlem gambling scene. Bronx-based mob boss Dutch Schultz was the first to move in, beating and killing numbers operators who would not pay him protection.
St. Clair and her chief enforcer Ellsworth “Bumpy” Johnson refused to pay protection to Schultz despite the amount of violence and intimidation by police they faced. Eventually Bumpy Johnson, her former enforcer, negotiated with Lucky Luciano and Lucky took over Schultz’ spots with a percentage going to Bumpy. The Italians then had to go to Bumpy first if they had any problems in Harlem. That’s when the legend of Bumpy Johnson began. The book “Harlem Godfather” by Bumpy’s wife, Mayme Johnson, provides a factual account of this.
Luciano realized that the struggle with the Five Families was hurting their business so Schultz was assassinated in 1935 on the orders of The Commission, St. Clair sent a telegram to his hospital bed as the gangster lay dying. It read, “As ye sow, so shall ye reap.” The incident made headlines across the nation.
By the 1940s, “Bumpy” Johnson had become the reigning king in Harlem while St. Clair became less and less involved in the numbers game. She died quietly and still rich in Harlem in 1969.”
A strong black woman who stood toe to toe with the Mafia & the NYPD? Sounds like Fish Mooney to me. She doesn’t look so out of place now, does she?

Okay, there’s a lot wrong with the notion that “NB people are just teenage girls trying to be ~special snowflakes~” but here’s a basic rundown:
- The whole “teenage girls only do [insert thing here] for attention” trope is misogynistic as hell.
- Calling nonbinary people girls when they aren’t girls is literal misgendering.
- That idea is assuming that all nonbinary people are DFAB which is a fucking lie.
- Adult nonbinary people exist. A lot of them do. This notion erases literally all adult nonbinary people.

What Difference a chair would make.
Hi all, i am not the best of writers but i wanted to let you know a little bit more about how the campaign and money raising, would help and change my life.
So in the picture is a picture of the type of chair i would like once the funds have been raised, this chair will be able to be used in my home and also out and about. This chair is also perfect as everything is also customisable so will be built specifically to my needs. This will be measured to my perfect fit and with customisation it also means if i am having a really bad with weakness in my arms then i can have dual controls so my husband will be able to use the gear stick to make the chair move too.
With this chair it would open up so many possibilities to me, things i took for granted before i became disabled.
The main thing would be that i would not have bruises all over my legs from the chair, currently now when i go out in my chair i have even a 10 minute outing leaves the sides of my thighs covered in black and blue bruises.
I would be able to do longer outings such as go to look at shops in the town centre, go on day trips when invited by my parents something i currently have to say no too. I love visiting stately homes, going to places such as Matlock and Bakewell, day trips to the sea side. I would even be able to go out to the local park to feed the squirrels and ducks, be able to take a trip to the library.
The independence it would bring would allow me to be involved with things again, without having to have people being worried to rush if i am in pain, or leaving early because things are too painful for me.
All the little things gathered mean so much to me and would make such a huge impact on my life.
I want to thank everyone that has made a creation for the campaign, has re-blogged it, has made a donation, who has contacted me and you are all amazing and i am making some amazing friends along the way too
If you would like to help by either sharing the campaign on facebook, or know someone who may want to make a donation please check newwheelchairforhayley
Anita Sarkeesian, creator of the popular Tropes vs. Women video series, is at the center of yet another death threat. The Standard Examiner reports that the director of Utah State University’s Center for Women and Gender, along with several other people, received an email promising a mass shooting if they didn’t cancel a speaking engagement for Sarkeesian, who is scheduled to talk at the center on Wednesday morning. A member of the Center for Women and Gender confirmed to The Verge that the threat was real, although she and campus police declined to provide more details.
The Standard-Examiner has printed what it says are excerpts from the letter, in which the unknown author (who claims to be a Utah State student) claims to have “a semi-automatic rifle, multiple pistols, and a collection of pipe bombs.” More specifically, they threatened to carry out a “Montreal Massacre-style attack” against Sarkeesian and anyone who attended the talk. “Feminists have ruined my life and I will have my revenge,” reads the email. The Montreal Massacre, carried out in December of 1989, was a mass shooting directed at engineering students in Montreal’s École Polytechnique. The killer, who also claimed that his life had been ruined by feminists, singled out women and murdered 14 before killing himself. Today, its anniversary is commemorated in Canada as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
Anita Sarkeesian has canceled her scheduled speech for tomorrow following a discussion with Utah State University police regarding an email threat that was sent to Utah State University. During the discussion, Sarkeesian asked if weapons will be permitted at the speaking venue. Sarkeesian was informed that, in accordance with the State of Utah law regarding the carrying of firearms, if a person has a valid concealed firearm permit and is carrying a weapon, they are permitted to have it at the venue.
"So, there is a history of death threats against you, and a possibly credible threat referencing an actual incident of mass male-on-female violence has been made in this specific instance, but it’s more important that people be allowed to carry their guns than for us to do anything to like, protect your life and the lives of other women. Guess you better just give up!"
TL;DR fuck every single thing about this situation and those laws.
Obviously all these threats every time she says something isn’t caused by misogyny (that of course doesn’t even exist). *sarcasm*
