5 is a horrible frat bro constantly hitting on poor 4, a sweet but sheltered Disney Princess type. Fight me
(And here we see a fun aspect of OLP: Everyone’s Number Personalities Are Different)
(I am not actually trying to pick a fight, to be clear)
Watching Severance (because dystopian worldbuilding fascinates me) and I have to say
As an ordinal-linguistic personification synesthete, I could NEVER handle this whole “scary numbers” thing
“At any given moment I want to punch 5 in the face so I don’t know what to tell you, Sketchy Corporate Overlords”

I literally do not care what the Bible says about any political issue. I am not Christian. Christian scripture should have zero effect on my life or my personal freedoms.

I’ve posted this to Twitter but I will post it here too, and before anyone asks YES THIS IS SAFE TO REBLOG EVEN IF YOU’RE NOT INDIGENOUS (AND I ASK YOU TO DO SO):
In the aftermath of the draft of the decision, I saw people, specifically white, non-Indigenous people (as Indigenous people who do speak on this are different), who were demanding on social media reservations and tribal governments to open abortion clinics on their lands, since our governments function separately from state governments and are sovereign.
AND I AM ASKING TO MY WHITE, NON-INDIGENOUS FOLLOWERS TO PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS.
If a tribe wants to do it, that is really fucking amazing! And I, as an Indigenous woman, hope that tribes do, but you, again I’m mostly talking to white, non-Indigenous people, should NOT be demanding that they do.
Here’s just two reasons:
White, non-Indigenous people in this country have always had some sort of damn entitlement to what tribal governments should do. Yes, we are entitled to the right to an abortion. But what no one, who is not Indigenous (and especially who is white and not Indigenous), has no right to feel entitled to what tribal governments choose to do.
Is it not clear our Supreme Court is shitty, not just with this Roe v. Wade decision, but with multiple that have happened over the past couple of weeks? How do you think that tribal governments have gotten so many rights to be so separate from state governments and to be sovereign? It’s usually been arguing things to the Supreme Court. I even did my undergraduate Capstone on how the Supreme Court has played an important role in determining reservation disestablishment or diminishment, and most of those come through tribal jurisdiction cases against state governments. Do you not think that many states, especially red states (who are the ones who are going to immediately outlaw abortion), aren’t just waiting to take tribal governments to the Supreme Court over these jurisdiction matters? And do you think our current Supreme Court will rule in the states favor or the tribes favor? I’m betting the states.
Again, if tribal governments decide to do it, good for them! I, as an Indigenous woman, hope they do! But please, as white, non-Indigenous people, do not demand this.
PS: There’s currently a case that the Supreme Court will be hearing soon, and then ruling a decision on, called Haaland v. Brackeen, where the states of Texas, Louisiana, and Indiana (kinda funny how these are also states with trigger bills on abortion, isn’t it!) are trying to get the Supreme Court to rule the Indian Child Welfare Act unconstitutional! For those who don’t know, the Indian Child Welfare Act was put in place because of horrendous abuse that happened with Native children being adopted by non-Native (especially white) families. And states would disproportionally take Native children away to adopt them out to non-Native (especially white) families. And so the Indian Child Welfare Act was put in place so that, to protect Native children from abuse and to keep Native children connected to their culture(s), they can only be adopted by Native families.
If you care so much about Indigenous people, maybe also direct attention to fighting so that the Supreme Court doesn’t rule the Indian Child Welfare Act unconstitutional!

My favorite overlooked object in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston is one of those “people have always been people” items tucked away among all the portraits of Dead Rich White Men. 
John Singleton Copley was hired to paint a portrait in the 1760s, and, wanting to be polite, the sitter offered Copley a glass of wine before realizing that the corkscrew was missing. Copley thought this was hilarious and responded by painting a corkscrew on the wall so that they could never lose it again. Years later the corkscrew became so famous that they ripped out this chunk of wall and carted it off to the MFA. The best part is this is is his only documented still life in a museum.

a reminder that while we're all hurting a lot and need to band together to get the republicans out of office there exists a website that is all good news and is very helpful with remembering to have some hope

been having fun with the block button today, so let me be perfectly clear:
I do not believe that any organism has the right to use a person’s body to sustain itself without that human’s consent. a person has the right to full and complete bodily autonomy, and that includes the right to determine how, or whether, their body is used to support any other being
I am in favor of fully legal abortion, on request, with no questions asked beyond those which may be necessary to be certain of the patient’s uncoerced consent. and I think it should be covered by health insurance
I do not consider an unborn fetus and a living baby the same thing. but even if someone did come up to another person, holding an actual infant, and say, “my baby will die if they don’t get an organ transplant from you specifically,” the law should not force that person to say yes. in my view, you are not morally obligated to give of your body to save another organism, even if that organism will die without you doing so
(putting aside the question of why a baby would need an adult’s organ. it’s an analogy, you understand)
just because I’m interested in history, historical aesthetics and language, etc. does not mean I hold the prevailing views of those time periods- though, I will note, western history has not always been as universally or strongly anti-abortion as some modern people might like to think
I cannot control who follows me, except to block people I catch Being Asses on my posts. but just know that that is where I stand, and if you disagree with me on the general theme of the bolded statement, that is incompatible with any friendship between us. I can’t be friends with someone who doesn’t think that I- an adult woman -should have complete control over my own body
Ye Be Warned

guys…just because an app says it’s “women owned and puts privacy first” does not mean downloading and using it is a good idea
