    Love the ivory bangle lady – and since she predates King Arthur, anyone who wants to whine about Black people or people of color in European history can educate themselves on facts, not whitewashed opinions.

    I saw a follow up to that Ory Con / autism thing that said Ory Con “cancelled” the panel, then held it anyway. So there’s that bullshit, too.

    That costume looks nothing like a body bag. I mean, the description is offensive but it doesn’t look like the costume being described at all. It’s like reading an ad for a “battered housewife” costume and the image shows Sexy June Cleaver. I just don’t get how the connection is apparent to anyone but the creator.

    I’ve heard that story about the two little Black boys dying a couple of times before, but every time it gains more horrifying details. The whole thing is reprehensible. Is there anyway her neighbors can be prosecuted – isn’t “willful negligence” one of the ways to commit murder? It won’t bring the babies back but maybe closure to the family and/or a signal to the rest of the country.

    I was ready to get pissed off at Pink but reading the article it’s not as bad as it sounds – she has dated women and was outted as bisexual, despite not identifying as such. This is actually getting into the politics of biphobia in LGBT+ communities and the politics of identity policing. If a woman whose behavior indicates bisexuality would prefer to identify as an “honorary lesbian”, I don’t see the problem with her.

    Great article on the kissing sailor photo.
