While we all know the Australia vs Facebook spat is merely about one multinational corporation using a captive government to extract money from another, I would be absolutely, 100% thrilled to return to social media when and if it were to become too financially risky for any site operator, big or small, anywhere in the world, to allow links to any news publisher whatsoever. The news bubble is why I left FB 5 years ago, GN 3 years ago, and never really got into Twitter.

Just two more miserable weeks.

So, we ordered a pallet of wood pellets from Lowe's, one of the two big hardware stores here. They were supposed to come Wednesday between noon and 4; they showed up at 6:30 AM and the only reason we heard them was that I was up vomiting from pain. They also didn't load the pellets into the garage as promised. They're back this morning to finish the job, but trying to make my wife sign a previously unmentioned waiver.

Took a picture of the guy's truck, but it's just a lease, no shaming today.

Speaking to both sides of the family on the phone today, one phrase in particular stands out in its universal usage: "because covid".

"We go down the coast in the fall... Well, except this year, because covid."

"They don't like me to leave the house, you know, because covid."

"I was supposed to have the surgery in October, but now it's in February because covid."

"We've been living here 6 weeks, but only got our licenses 2 days ago because covid."

Ok, that last one was actually us.

music, ptsd 

I love the song "Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap, but part of the way it moves me is to make me incredibly envious and resentful of those whose most horrific childhood memory is merely Mommy and Daddy splitting up.

homophobia in/as a kink 

5. I actually had someone call me that in a back room 8 or 9 years ago; he got his dick bitten, hard, and then acted like I was the asshole. (I was a club member, though, and he some rando, so we never saw him again. "Some asshole from NYC", the club owner said.)

I feel the need to sub for a man again, but I'm afraid that even if I take VA of the table, he might need it to get off, and then I'm not only a murderer but one they'd try to paint as a homophobe. I'm stuck.

4. Is it just because I'm a big guy whose stare puts a chill in the spine of a certain kind of person, that not one of the 400+ men I've been with dared to use that word in my presence yet it's been going on all along? I've heard plenty of VA, yet never homophobic VA. It would be hilarious seeing a dude with a hard-on calling another, not-erect dude "faggot"... but only until I smashed his skull in. And the people who use that term are using it more aggressively now;

3. What this means is that after 30 years of playing and never hearing that word spoken in a play environment, even men I've thought were decent have the ability, and even the NEED, to say or hear the word "faggot" while maintaining an erection.

Part of my mental illness, as I have to acknowledge the autism spectrum is, makes me take things literally. I want to murder anyone who uses that word in anger, even if the anger is tied to their sexual function somehow.

2. I'm pretty sure the reason I have this at all is that my first live-in boyfriend stole it while we were cat-sitting for them. It includes a photo of his husband/Master from before they had met in person, looking now like a young cub I might have taken on as a sub. It also includes dialogue he wrote for his hubby, including a lot of handwritten stage direction ("Body odor is important", "Force your piss into my mouth here" etc.) and plenty of uses of the word "faggot".

1. For the last few years, I've been getting sicker and sicker of what seemed to be a sharp increase in the use of homophobic language as a gay (and specifically leather) flirtation device. I honestly thought it was all the hatefulness of uspol and brexit empowering the homophobes to invade our sexual spaces. But no. Last night I found a 20+ page fantasy written by my friend in the 90s to act out with a guy he had just met, who's now been his husband for 25 years.

Male nudity 

Did someone say we need more dick pics? I'm always happy to contribute! 😉

But seriously, to anyone in an industry who stands to benefit from a wave of collective increased male libido:

Which is a better month for your business: October, or December?

@raindog469 I can understand this. However I’m in awe from a crafter’s point of view. This is a creepy job but a well done one.
