TIL that on his death bed in 1936, King George’s Dr issued the final notice “The King’s life is moving peacefully towards its close" and then proceeded to inject him with 750mg of morphine and 1000mg of cocaine, enough to kill him twice over.

They cut off the end of the sentence, which is criminal when you read the rest:
“….In order to ease the monarch’s suffering, and to have him expire in time for the printing presses of the Times, which rolled at midnight.”
Hurry it up, Georgie-boy, the Times needs a headline.
… first time I’ve heard that motive for regicide.

LGBTQ Nation reports that Stephen King, Neil Gaiman, NK Jemisin and Margaret Atwood have joined with other American and Canadian writers and editors to support transgender and non-binary people.
As members of the writing and publishing community of the United States and Canada, we stand firmly in support of trans and non-binary people and their rights.
We are writers, editors, journalists, agents, and professionals in multiple forms of publishing. We believe in the power of words. We want to do our part to help shape the curve of history toward justice and fairness.
To that end, we say: non-binary people are non-binary, trans women are women, trans men are men, trans rights are human rights.
Your pronouns matter.
You are loved.
The letters are in response to the transphobic attacks made against transgender and nonbinary people by authors like J.K. Rowling.
Author Maureen Johnson, who initiated the letter, said that while “letters do not fix things”, they are “designed to a) show support and b) bring awareness to an issue. In this case, the issue is transphobia in the publishing discourse and community.”
“When J.K. got involved in [the debate in the U.K. over transgender rights] it gave a lot of legitimacy to something that before seemed fringey. It became more accepted, because people know J.K. from Harry Potter,” Johnson told Publishers Weekly, explaining that she had organized the U.S. letter because “it’s human decency. Sometimes you need to put your name on the line and say I don’t agree with what’s going on.”
I have my name on this letter as well, and I am very grateful to Maureen for taking the time to put this all together.
oh man i never told you. recently we went to the albertina art gallery and in the contemporary wing we saw this painting, “nacht der skorpione”
and we were fucking blown away by it, like audible gasping from everyone, it’s almost as tall as the room and incredibly expressive and impressive
and after having walked around looking at the work of 99% male artists and their endless studies dedicated to The Female Form for so goddamn long my very first thought upon seeing it was “this was painted by a woman”, so i walk closer and sure enough, i was right, her name is xenia hausner.
and then i look at it for a moment longer and my chest swells because these are intense characters with internal lives and that is what makes them attractive and my second thought is “this was not painted by a straight woman”
and i mean i can’t say anything for sure but i looked her up and
and nobody else picked up on this in the original painting? when i told them they were like “what, why, because of the masculine (???) brush strokes”? they were not shaken to their very core by the authenticity of it? what i’m trying to say is gaydar is extremely real and straight people extremely do not have it.
Some facts because apparently people still don’t get it:
- Not all aro people want to marry or date someone.
- Not all aro people want a queerplatonic relationship.
- Not all aro people want a committed platonic relationship at all.
- Not all aro people want to have children.
- Not all aro people want to live with friends or family.
- Not all aro people want to share their lives with someone else.
- It’s okay to be aro and not want any of that. You’re not broken or selfish or whatever, you’re allowed to share or not share your life and your space with whoever you choose.
