So I made a sarcastic comment about ‘oh, we don’t need feminism why?’ at the end of something on Facebook about the whole Anita Sarkeesian thing.

Literally the first comment is a guy friend of mine bitching about it.Not the…

It did…and then someone I’ve complained about before here posted something else. And then another person. I just wanted to catch up on conversations, damnit! Facebook why?!

You were the smart one there. Unfortunately, the ones causing the problems (not the one who bitched about me using the phrase ‘And we don’t need feminism again…why?’—he’s a first-time offender) are family. It’s getting to the point that I’m probably going to wipe half the people in my friends, be they family or not. I’m just working up the fortitude right now. 

I require much more tea for that and for dealing with the shitstorm I’ve probably accidentally unleashed. Again. 

Sadface!

If it’s gonna be stressful to remove them, you could do the thing I did for a while! Make a filtered list that they’re not on and make sure whenever you post about something they’re dicks about you post it to there?

(Probably you know this, but just in case: when you update your status, you can select who to post to by the dropdown menu to the left of the word ‘post’.)

Also, something I only realised recently, if you click the dropdown arrow to the right of peoples’ names you can “unfollow” them => stay listed as friends but they’ll never show up in your newsfeed! I LOVE THIS FUNCTIONALITY SO MUCH.

"Every single Marvel Studios movie has centered around a presumably straight, white, male protagonist, even if white women (mostly love interests) and men of color (support roles) have played roles in the film. The franchise is a box office juggernaut and has a ton of movies on this list, but we’ve gotten two to three movies about each of the men on the Avengers and there’s yet to be a film about Black Widow.

Both of Marvel’s ensemble films—The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy—trimmed down the superhero teams for their film adaptations, and the women characters, save for one, were the first to be cut. Most moviegoers will never know that women of color and LGBTQ characters were cut from Guardians of the Galaxy, but audiences will get to relate to the talking raccoon and the talking tree."

COOKING TIP

isozyme:

if you’re making a cream sauce from a roux and you’d like a) for it to be smooth and perfect plus b) you’re an impatient fucker like me

heat the milk up in the microwave for 1-2 minutes while you make up your roux

upon adding the warmed milk, your sauce will thicken almost instantly, and won’t be so prone to breaking into that sad grainy texture.  success!

ooooooooh amazing

deeeeeleeeeeete this fuckin’ arsehole and his dickish commenttttttttttttttttt~

Agreed. Though I need a bit more tea to bury my extreme disappoint. *grump*

I hope the tea made the disappointingness better! Or at least was a pleasant distraction that let you enter the Facebook fray again better.

… I’ve been thinking lots about Facebook dynamics recently, actually. I didn’t really used to try and control who said what on my facebook - and I used to be a lot quieter over there about what I said and how I said it and whether or not I put it on a filtered list.

In the last year or so I’ve started to have LOADS more conversations about feminism and other activist/intersectionality stuff there. I didn’t really plan to, but I got more and more feministy friends who didn’t know each other, and the open chip-in-where-you-like kind of discussions that come from facebook statuses started to get really awesome from all the awesome people who showed up to them. Kind of like a virtual tea salon. 

I’m lucky in that I’ve never added relatives on my Facebook, so 95% of the time if someone shows up with bigoted views I can block em or delete them without it being an issue. But I got more and more comfortable with doing kind of soft moderation, like: “that’s a bit off the point, @name, let’s talk about it somewhere else?” and “actually, please don’t use that word in my space!” and similar. I feel really good about it. I’ve loved seeing kind of conversation happening ‘in public’ in internet terms whenever I see it elsewhere, it makes me really happy to host it myself.

iiiii have already got awesome stuff to do today but I actually just wanna chill out in minecraft. we put together a new server set-up and it’s REALLY LOVELY!!!

also, making your own custom private modpack in minecraft: much more straightforward than expected. definitely less of a faff than the previous way we did it, which was to get an existing FTB modpack and swap out all the things we didn’t want (the one where everything’s called stuff like “xychorium” and glows annoyingly) with cooler stuff (Witchery).

A+ gaming experience would recommend.

Milestone Reward: How to Make Your Own Problem Glyphs, A Tutorial

problemglyphs:

This tutorial is a milestone reward from the Problem Glyphs Patreon campaign and was made possible by the support of its patrons. I want to emphasize how life-changing this project is for me, solely because of your investment in my drawings, financial and otherwise. Thank you.

This tutorial is in text format rather than video because I find it difficult to draw while trying to follow a video (I have to keep pausing and rewinding), and because accessibility for Deaf and Hard of Hearing readers, as well as Blind and Low Vision people who are using screen readers, is important to me.  Let me know if I can help with accessibility in other ways.

Problem Glyphs started in November of 2013 as a response to one of those popular “ask meme” posts on Tumblr. I (and glyph poet Elias IKB) tell the whole story to a journalist here, so if you’re interested in more in-depth backstory, that’s the place to go. Right now I’m going to show you how to make your own problem glyphs, at any level of drawing ability, with the tools you have on hand.
