Re: Masculinity, so fragile

Alls I know is that Sheryl Sandberg, Ronda Rousey, or any given member of the US Women's National Soccer Team is way more competitive, aggressive, and violent than a wiener like me will ever be. Yes, but you recognize that because they are competitive, aggressive and violent in stereotypically male...

Re: Epiphanies

My conclusion, judging from what I see online, is that the more performatively feminist a man is the more likely it is he's a sexual predator. It's catnip for sociopathic guys who want to abuse women. So basically the wokelib version of the rabid anti-gay preacher who gets caught balls deep in a re...

I'm listening to an absurd amount of Chelsea Wolfe lately. Seems like good Halloween music.
She's pretty great.
I've got her, Myrkur, and Esben & the Witch on one playlist. It works pretty well.

Re: Petty annoyances

I burned the back side of my elbow on a heat gun doing Halloween decorations. I was previously unacquainted with 2d degree burns. This is annoying as hell, and not helped by the fact I have to use a mirror or my phone to actually see what is happening with it.

Doesn't matter what the House does, no way the Senate votes for impeachment. Of course, I am a shitty political prognosticator with a very low correct percentage.

I have given people speeds in furlongs per fortnight before. If I ask you what units you want your answer in, don’t tell me to pick. I have MathCad and a weird sense of humor.
