Fuck! I’m having an extremely stressful week.

It seems like the queer/trans community is the only marginalised community that has to bend over backwards to accommodate allies. Allies are NOT part of the community, they are allies *to it*. Allies should not feel entitled to the services, resources, memberships, etc of queer/trans organisations. Allies have to understand this. The hurt feelings of allies do not trump the needs of LGBTQ+ people. Allies cannot be dictating the decisions of queer/trans organizations. Likewise, LGBTQ+ need to stop catering to allies. The amount of LGBTQ+ people (mostly cis gay men) I’ve met who are adamant for ally accommodation over other people in the community is horrifying. We have to stop dancing around their feelings. We do not need them. Any “ally” that makes people in the community feel unsafe or further marginalised so they can be accommodated is not an ally.

Not to diminish the work of allies who know what’s what. I’ve know more awesome allies then I do terrible “allies”.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

PLEASE. 

Please do it. This one is important. You may not think YOU are important (you are, by the way) but if your representatives know that you care about how they vote, and if you call, and the person before you calls, and the person after you calls… then they vote to keep the internet the way it is. 

DOOOO ITTTTTTTT (said in the reassuring voice of the thing under your bed when you were tiny)

Maybe people wouldn’t be so annoyed with Milo Manara’s “Spider-Woman” #1 variant cover if every series got overtly sexy variant covers—not just the ones with female leads.

This is a world I want to live in.

Dream assignment.  Please.

Dear Marvel;

Please hire Kevin Wada to do some sexy dude covers.

Pearl and Amethyst’s fusion dance song, extended into a full song. This is what the song would’ve sounded like if their dance was “successful”!

Welcome to Park.

Charging for photography

I was just offered a gig to photograph an art event over the course of four half days. I was asked for a quote and don’t know what to give. I have a couple a mutuals who have done this before. Any advice would be appreciated.
