God damn, I thought this was real. (It is satire.) #uspol

Is it just me, or are there a lot of common themes to the opening to Gales of Song (BELLE) and Blinded by the Light (FFXIII)?
Joe Manchin is a Republican. #uspol
Sen. Joe Manchin says he would do “anything I can” to move “common sense” gun legislation forward, but still refused to eliminate the filibuster to get gun legislation through the Senate, per @jessicadean

It really feels like the entire goddamn conversation about stand-up comedy and transphobic jokes is just a complete rehash of the early 2000s discourse over rape jokes. #cw #noxp

Like, so many comedians cannot seem to conceive of how to make jokes about marginalization without heaping on more harm. Just because something is "edgy" doesn't mean it's good or helps make the world a better place. It feels we keep learning and forgetting that fact. #cw #noxp

Something I think a lot of folks don't realize is how much of a tax weaponized self-doubt adds to every aspect of life. It's not enough to want to do a thing when every fiber of your being has internalized the whole world of negativity surrounding you. #noxp

And yes, this is a thing I experience on a nearly daily basis — despite dozens of papers, having invented significant parts of my field, despite having published a book, there's always still more negativity, more reasons people have to doubt me. #noxp

Who knows, maybe I would have realized I was trans earlier if I didn't have so much doubt inflicted on me. Maybe I could have accomplished even more if I knew people believed in me. As it is, though, I see shit like the "women can't code" scammer, and I pay that tax. #noxp

There's never an "enough" to shut up those voices, to placate the doubters and the toxic dudebros, to be accepted. You cannot impress the haters out of their hate, because it's not actually about you — gatekeeping never really is. #noxp

So if there's any point to this thread, it's that even as difficult as it is to deny that tax, to refuse the burden the haters try to place on you, at the end of the day there's not really an alternative — their hate and disbelief isn't about you. #noxp

I think the least important but most fervent political position that I hold is my deep and frustrated wish that people would recognize how insignificant "millions of dollars" is at the level of national budgets.

Found my list of poetry from when I was a kid, and I regret to inform you that I have always been on my bullshit.

Saw Chip & Dale the other day, and goodness I Have Thoughts™. At once, a pretty laudable attempt at making a spiritual sequel to Roger Rabbit, but also leaves me slightly less optimistic about the potential for human survival. #noxp

My entire adult life, the one constant in political discourse has always been that there is no place in American culture to accurately describe what the right-wing is doing, even as they fundamentally transform and undermine every aspect of the American government. #noxp #uspol

To a large degree, there is no difference between between where discourse was in 2000 and where it is today save for magnitude and degree — every mainstream narrative runs interference for the right-wing at every turn by denying the plain fact of their actions. #uspol #noxp
