Had to take the bus into town today, and wore a kilt. Some Delores decided to take issue; which sadly I'm used to. "Why are you wearing a skirt?!" and so on. As I said, used to it (and big scary white dude, so I have some privilege to wield), so I'm calmly addressing it with her

But then she said "well how am I supposed to explain that to my kid?!", and friends, I didn't have to say a thing, because the most awesome Black lady jumped in. She turned to her kid (I'd guess roughly 13 years old) and said "hey, why is he allowed to wear a skirt?"

Kid: "he's grown enough to wear whatever the fuck he wants"

Mom: "see?! Ain't hard ma'am"

Delores huffed but that was pretty much the end 🤣

Are you a cis man trying to wear stereo-typically "manly" clothes and also survive in the heatwave?


thats all.

it's 10000 degrees. Can I ride my motorcycle wearing a miniskirt. Its dangerous but i'm only going about 15 blocks, all in a neighborhood.

how many times do I have to tell youtube that the advert showing three WvU gymnastics team members with the heading "inappropriate pics caught" is inappropriate? it even SAYS so. You're implying that those gymnists are going to be showing you their boobs or something. They are real people and talented gymnasts. stop objectifying them.

I could use some cat pictures. Its a rough day and my cat-housemate has gone on to play with the other cats beyond the veil.

"can we go to outer space?"
we have an endless expense that's difficult to cross and will kill you without even noticing at home, it's called the ocean

If you have first hand knowledge and don't mind answering, which is correct: "a person with autism" or "an autistic person?"

I am alive today because I always wear a high quality full face helmet.

Never go cheap on safety gear.

You can't predict everything.

Pet death 

A good cat died tonight in rainy Portland while two of her least resented humans pet her and held her paw (her least favorite thing). She lived longer than most, traveled the country and was loved. In the fiction of her life she rented a room of her own took out loans from actual sharks to pay for graduate school, culinary school and the cell phone that she used to run her international crime syndicate. She hated her flying squirrel and loved the fire place. Safe travels Turkey.

Masto friends, I have to recommend this fantastic unsolved mysteries rewatch podcast by two awesome witches who don't give a fuck what anyone thinks, they are just here to do good things. If you like My Fav Murder I can't imagine you disliking this.


Preaching to the choir 

People of the internet. If you don't like a creator's content that doesn't mean the creator needs your feedback, it means you need to find a different creator. Keep your opinions to yourself and go find a creator you DO like and complement them.

From one of my friends tonight at drinks: "Nix is this generations Slackware"

You know why I could never be a super-hacker? I like humans and I would suck at being a lone-wolf.
