When men talk of women and girls in terms of legal/not legal, what they’re really saying is “I already sexually objectify this child and would attempt to fuck her if there were no laws in the way.”

You can’t deny that is fucking scary.

Sometimes there are things that just sort of vaguely seem wrong, but you can’t put your finger on why…until it’s worded like this, and suddenly everything slides into place and you feel like someone punched you in the gut.

DEBI JACKSON, MOTHER OF TRANSGENDER CHILD, GIVES MOVING SPEECH

The best part of the video may be when Jackson addresses the comments she’s heard about her daughter and sets the record straight about statements like you “wanted a girl so you turned your child into one” and “kids have no idea what they want or who they are — my kids wants to be a dog, should I let him?”

So watch the full video to see her answers to those difficult questions here.

Chills down my whole body. This is how parents should react.

Sure, let's close the libraries and just get everyone an Amazon Kindle Unlimited Subscription

Ahhh, the privileged white dudes who haven’t used libraries in years so don’t know anything about a modern library never fail to let me down in letting me know just why my job is unnecessary and obsolete in the 21st century!

For the record, I have a Kindle, buy books for said Kindle, enjoy said Kindle.

The ‘Netflix subscription model’ for ebooks is not a library, that’s all I’m saying. A library is much much more than a room full of books, as Ingrid says.

Fuck that guy with a rusty pitchfork. Libraries aren’t merely big buildings with books, they’re armories filled with the greatest weapons and tools ever devised.

Confession: When I heard Cole would be written by someone who’s not Gaider, I was a little disappointed. Then I looked it up and found out Weekes took the job. Now I can’t wait to see Cole, I bet Patrick will do a great job!

He absolutely did.

It’s not my Cole, precisely, but I don’t really mind that since Cole ended the novel at a crossroads where he could easily change… and Patrick didn’t take him that far from my Cole anyhow (certainly far less of a distance than between my Anders and Jennifer’s Anders). You’ll see.

Giving up Cole to another writer was not easy. I’m certain that, from an outsider’s perspective, it might seem like we writers just draw names at random when it comes to who works on what. Occasionally it feels that way, too… mostly because some characters get tossed from writer to writer, depending on schedules and who has time to work on something. Patrick came on the project from the Mass Effect team to pick up characters and plots which the rest of the DA writers had yet to get to (an anxiety-inducing pile of work which seemed to be growing on a daily basis). When he expressed interest in Cole, I had a heart attack that lasted approximately three days, until I realized it was either let him go or remove him from the game—as my schedule is the worst of the lot and my workload never gets lighter.

Eventually I even stopped backseat writing, peering over Patrick’s shoulder with nervously clutched hands, asking how my baby was doing. Patrick, trooper that he is, did not once tell me to go fuck myself.
