Pinned toot

annual reminder that I once took a screenwriting class, and one person in that screenwriting class wrote the phrase:

"the thought shot into her brain, like milk shooting into the breasts of a pregnant woman"

Im asexual but its just a fact that house and techno are the two hot genres

Anyway this is basically the meme where someone points a torch at a mirror and the light hits someone it's not supposed to hit

Not to mention people who have had bad experiences surrounding sex. It's middle schooler bullshit and you should not do it

Hey just in general can we stop valuing people based on how much sex they have? Even jokingly. It's incredibly hostile towards ace people

A group of friends and I have been trying to help this woman in New Orleans keep her home. If you can spare any $ I would super appreciate it. The only thing we have is each other. #mutualaid

there is something weirdly peaceful about farming HW fates for a resistance weapon

somebody made a facebook group for my high school class and I really wanna go in and post "so did anyone else become a transgender communist since graduation or is it just me?"

Now that Larry is gone i can finally say it without repercussions 

John Wick 2 sucks ass

meta, mh, institutions (bad) 

I find it funny--not ha ha funny--that Larry seems to self-describe as an avid consumer of movies and shows and video games, where mental health facilities are nigh universally depicted, and historically rightly so, as locations for horror, but he still thought and said within the last few hours multiple times that (I am barely paraphrasing at all) "weird people need to be locked up until they think in a way I consider normal."

You realize that these places are not fictional and the harms they cause people are real, right? I mean, obviously no you don't if you're willing to say that, but it's not a joke. It's not funny. It's not just, ha ha shitposting about the weird people who are probably from Tumblr or whatever it is you say to yourself about it, maybe nothing at all. When you go from saying "that's odd" to "you ought to be locked up," you're crossing like a dozen lines all at once.

one thing i have seen a few people do that i don't like is try to armchair diagnose larry. cut that shit out. he sucks, you don't need to specualte about the mental health of a dude who's just an asshole, especially not one who is literally gone because he crossed an ableist line

this morning proving once again that the "nip it in the bud" strategy is still the best option

whether it's fascist or chuds, you gotta confront that shit up front

larry meta 

i don't regret taking a rogue action to ban him but i generally think that i disagree with the radtown approach to things: I think if someone's a bad actor, you ban them. Tiptoeing up to the line repeatedly is crossing the line.

larry meta 

i don't regret banning larry at all but i do feel bad that I left him festering for so long. The only warning on his account was also from me, almost exactly a year ago, for coming back to stir up shit and pick fights after the cryptids white flight. i gave him a time-out and after that he just started using the site less.

Larry was obviously a very toxic and terrible individual, but he was also the master of tiptoeing right up to the line and just barely not crossing it--or, as we've seen now, lying about the situation to make himself look like the aggreived party. In other words, he's like the perfect case to show why radtown's somewhat lassiez-faire approach to moderation wasn't a great idea. Radmin also liked him and generally felt that we shouldn't ban a user in otherwise "good standing". Not feeling like there was a good solution to the larry problem is part of why I left radtown tbh, though for some reason radmin never disabled my mod powers.
