I’ll be doing comics reviews for Patreons soon, but for now, some links…
Tim (still using that public name for now) at the Hurting writes one of the most powerful coming-out pieces I’ve read. I’m not trans myself, but the rest of this *really* resonates with me. Good luck, Tim, and I hope life treats you better, and you treat yourself better, from now on.
For those of you who are citizens of the world, Penny Andrews has put out T-shirts saying as much. £3 from each sale goes to the National Autistic Society.
Two very good posts by Siderea on the reactions to the Trump tape.
My wife Holly writes on Lib Dem Voice about how to address concerns on immigration. Replies are precisely what you’d expect for a woman writing on that subject.
The No-Cloning Theorem and the Human Condition
One poll has Trump ahead. It’s because of a single 19-year-old black man in Illinois (and bad design).
I always have trouble leaving comments on The Hurting, and today was no different, so I feel moved to say something here instead. Tim’s is a singular voice, and an excellent example of Holly’s maxim “everyone good is necessary”. Not at all a surprise to really feel this piece, as few of us write with such tremendous personal force and candour. I’m glad you linked this, Andrew, as otherwise I might not have seen it for a while. A remarkable excursion into another person’s life, but I guess that’s about par for the course for The Hurting.
Now, obviously, off to listen to some Tegan & Sara.
Re non-cloning theorum: God’s copyright protection?
Thank you for sharing the Tim O’Neill piece.
