The person who said 'let's look at science': "I don't want to assume, Del, but you're trans, aren't you?"

1) Then don't assume
2) No, you don't have to belong to an ostricised, marginalised group of people in order to stand up for them. FFS.

@minego i hope you haven’t seen this yet.

17yo nephew: what’s the proper word if a man finds another man beautiful?
Me: Um… beautiful?
Him: But than people think i’m gay.
Me: Are you?
Him: Nope.
Me: Still, the word is “beautiful”.

I find it really strange people struggle with calling anyone beautiful without implying they are sexually attracted to them. I find a huge lot of men and women beautiful without wanting to have sex with them…

Sometimes i thought the problem is in me. But for a while i know it’s the other way around.

PSA for anyone from a defunct instance who still wants to view their archive, and cant because it's all json:

I made a python script that generates a human-readable html page from you're archive that you can open in your browser to view your old posts.

If you've got python installed, just plop it into the archive, run it, and open the new "processed_archive.html" file it makes in your web browser to read your archive!

in a meeting and the teamboss said something about how some harvard business recommendation was to make it clear that it was okay to cry at work

i scoffed along with everyone else and then realized that they were scoffing at the idea of emotions and i was scoffing at the idea of how of course the business advice is to say you're permitted to cry rather than recommend working conditions that don't drive people to tears

One thing I like in the is that some people call each other “butts” and no one feels offended.

Hi everybody! I'm Conor. I'm from #ireland. I stream #thesims on #twitch.
