Book Blog- @lapis
@lapis eeek! i'm so excited, and also glad to see a sign she's okay. her blog/book are so funny and the depression parts so relatable.
@lapis this is so good to hear. Brosh is one of those people who i think of relatively often and hope she's doing OK wherever she is.
🚨 Allie Brosh's book is _really_ coming out 🚨
This is not a drill
Stamped From The Beginning
Ok onto part 4 with W. E. B. Du Bois
It's talking about the birth of plantation fiction which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like.
There's this good part talking about black historians. Don't revise and allow the racist shit in as "fact". Do revise and you're not "being objective"
Du Bois has this idea of the strong Black woman and the weak Black man.
And Du Bois goes north to Harvard.

How are these #HumbleBundle Bundles quality-wise?
I'd be reading the comics on my pc I think, which makes me reluctant to read them (I say, but I read scanlations so 🤷 )
autism as a trend/fad
Seeing some neurotypicals talking like autistic people have recruited people who weren't autistic into some autism trend or fad, or even brainwashed them into a cult.
It's hogwash, obviously. Like it's some kind of 'Rapid Onset Autism' or something.
Trans people know this denial device well.
So do gay people.
It only looks sudden to someone who you were hiding it from, who doesn't know you've been struggling and grappling with shame about it for years, or even your whole life, without letting people know.
For trans and other LGBTQ+ people it's a closet, for autistic people it's masking.
this is a random thought i just had:
was thinkin' about the difference between readin' a book in original vs. readin' translated, and how the translator puts their own connotations and lens on it.
then, if you learn a language an' read the original, you still have the lens of your own experiences and connotations.
an', this all meaning, even in your native language, every book you read is unique to you an' only you. which is kinda magic, when ya' think about it.
sorry for da long post
Anyone thought about creating a Funkwhale Instance for hosting podfic? https://archiveofourown.org/tags/Audio%20Format:%20MP3/works #FanFiction #Podfic
