I bet Rick Astley struggles with Lent.
Ever notice how racists love to use their hatred of bad men who aren’t white as an excuse to lay out all their bigotry in safety? Look, assholes, we’ve all seen your racist-ass depictions of Kim Jong Un, Osama Bin Laden, or whatever other asshole out in the world, and we’re not so fucking stupid that we can’t point out that you’re racist without necessarily supporting the people.
tw: abusive parents
Aha! Found it. (Advice targeted to parents of fat people, but good advice for all parents, IMO.)
(Which is a wonderful blog as well, so signal boost as well.)
One of the main reasons I have nothing to do with most of my family. I decided to opt out of living with their abuse about my fatness.

Bad Advisor ain’t even gonna bother to make a damn “good advice interlude” text gif for this, because this is a boring and pointless rabbit hole that nobody, including and very specifically you, needs to go down. Like okay, the Bad Advisor tells you that TEH FIRST BLOWJOB IS TEH MAGICAL! What’s that gonna do for you? Not a thing, besides maybe give you temporary permission to obsess over a damn blowjob. Like okay, the Bad Advisor tells you that NOBODY CARES ABOUT THEIR FIRST BLOWJOB. Well now you’re mad at the Bad Advisor, because what you wanted to hear was EVERYBODY CARES ABOUT THEIR FIRST BLOW JOB YOU’RE TOTALLY THE ONE.
Who fucking knows? This shit is subjective as fuck. Do oral sex with people you like doing oral sex with. Don’t try to figure out whether it means anything. Attributing magical powers to individual sex acts is gonna get you no fucking where real fucking fast.
I think it’s not really something your average person is going to know about at all, but it’s basically
stop/discourage things like this blog from happening.
It’s a circling of the wagons, so they can point to a project like this, which 1. is outside their purview for very good reasons and 2. wouldn’t get funding anyway because it’s “too confrontational”.
It’s so they can point to independent projects published online and say “oh, they’re just some wingnut working outside respectable institutions of learning”.
It’s making sure we never get payment or recognition for this kind of work. On the one hand, it might have the effect of stemming some of the rampant plagiarism that goes on, but what do you want to bet that this rule is going to get bent for people who fall IN the sacred circle of publishing within academic journals and maybe happened to lift their entire thesis from “some blog”? And that somehow this new rule will only affect people who’ve previously blogged academic journal-level material online because they were repudiated from publishing it there first? Because that’s already pretty much the established pattern.
That’s the funny thing about structural and institutional disenfranchisement: it’s this amazing coincidence that it seems to always only work in one direction; benefiting those who already have power and recognition, and further disenfranchising those who have neither.
Sadly, I have to say I agree. Even after studying at Oxford, where on the one hand research of all kind is welcome, on the other hand they too still have these gate-keeping mechanisms that stop all ‘unwanted’…
