Periodic reminder that this famous nazi book burning photograph was them burning the Magnus Hirschfeld library, which specialized in transgender research:

Yeah, expressing mixed feelings in a review is the hardest thing of all, but it can be super important. Glad you were able to nail that. And yeah, the main thing is "should I waste my time on this?" Tho the loudest commenters will be the ones who already made up their mind.

Voter suppression remains a constant in electoral politics, and it’s still aimed squarely at people of color.

Even apart from the meanness of not letting your kid figure out their identity thru trial and error, let's say your kid later decides they're cis. In that case, you've still educated your child that it's okay to be trans, and they're more likely to respect trans people they meet.

Yeah, that was something we were super passionate about, and I still think that's really important. It's fine to say Michael Bay made a shitty movie, without needing to comment on Michael Bay as a human being. (I know almost nothing about MB personally, he's a random example.)

We definitely need to hang out in real life soon! That novel sounds incredible and I'm dying to read it, but also we just need to make a clever plan for meeting up and conquering the universe. <3

Wow good memory. Yes! And yeah, there really are no words to convey how terrible GoE was. I feel like in general, a lot of us invested in snark as a means of dealing with the shittiness of things -- but maybe that snark led to more cynicism and was part of how we ended up here.

YAY it was so lovely to see you there. Sorry we didn't get to chat at all, but I was glad we got a few different games going at once. <3

Thank you!!! I'm still very proud of that one. I can still remember when I thought it was the only piece of writing I'd ever be remembered for. :p

You know how to sputter out a child’s “phase” quickly? AFFIRM IT AS REALITY This is why gender incongruence must be *persistent* before treatment. Phases aren’t persistent by definition. Beware! Resisting a kid's phase can keep it from resolving and make it APPEAR persistent!

It’s hard for any first-time filmmaker to break in — but in 2019, gave 19 of them a shot. For , and I look at five debut features from inclusive voices, which Netflix says scored between 7M-32M views in their first 4 weeks:

I always tried to be snarky but constructive, but it was a delicate balance and didn't always land the way I hoped. At least we were careful never to make this stuff personal, or go after creators rather than critiquing their works. I think I'd do it differently now.

Thank you!!!! TBH I feel somewhat bad about how harsh some of those reviews I wrote were. I sometimes got a lil bit carried away back then. OTOH I always tried to represent my accurate feelings about the things I was reviewing, and any exaggeration was clearly for comic effect.

I'm voting for in the primary, but I think is cool too. Either way, I'm voting for the democratic nominee in November. We just have to fight for what's right.

Reminder: Warren is in the top tier both nationally and in early state polls, and voters like her a lot. Biden and Sanders folks are claiming she’s not viable because they want her voters to switch. Don’t fall for it - help us do the work to win instead.
