I'm going to try to post stuff at @squiggy , and it will be mostly friends-only.
If you want to read about my inner turmoil, and we're mutuals, good chance I'll approve a follow request. Just want to talk about that stuff in a smaller sandbox.

* The price of an "entry level" bike has crept up in the past few years
* Pretty much every bike made by a major manufacturer is a technological marvel compared to bikes of 10 years ago. It's hard to make a bad choice
* Bike fit is by far the most important factor
did the ace attorney fans on here already see this? probably.. but it’s not worth the risk of them NOT seeing it..
uspol, insurrection, criminal justice
This (PDF) affidavit is worth reading just for the chatlog between one of the insurrectionists and a very unsympathetic instagram follower.
"You embarrassed everyone who knows you"
"I hate that I even know you"
Before I came out to myself I couldnt understand that hating getting my hair cut was a manifestation of gender dysphoria. After experiencing the relief and happiness of finally letting my hair grow did I understand it for myself...
And THEN I learned it's a COMMON transfemme experience.
The more trans people talk about their experiences, the sooner trans kids and adults can find insight into their own experiences that they might otherwise never understand.
I can't think of another food-based movie that so touches on life, sex, death, the ridiculous and food in such a comprehensive way that Tampopo does.
Sure not writing image descriptions is one kind of action that can make a community less welcoming to disabled people.
But honestly, hardline proclamations that everyone MUST write image descriptions or they're BAD (which I'm seeing more often)...also feel pretty unwelcoming!
Even as someone who benefits from image descriptions, I don't benefit from the lack of nuance around disability issues. I don't benefit from being used as a stick to beat people with who aren't writing image descriptions.
Anyway, the twin cities metro area only has 3% of non ICU hospital beds free right now.
This page is my dashboard for both "how risky is it to catch Covid right now" and "is my surgery likely to be further delayed by other people spreading Covid"
"Do not run from the right-wing charge that you are giving people free stuff in order to gain their votes: actually, just give them stuff. People need stuff. They need it now; they needed it yesterday; they needed it ten years ago. It is not nefarious to make people’s lives better in the hope that they will keep you in power so that you can continue to make their lives better"
YEP. That's the shit. 👍
