Things to Remember with Rejection Sensitive Dysphoria

- Everyone doesn't secretly hate you
- Most people aren't scrutinizing everything you do
- You don't have to be perfect to be loved
- You're not a bad person for mistakes you've made
- Your intrusive thoughts are lying to you
- The people in your life want to be there

4 sketched out panels of a 6 panel spread, with red lines overlaid showing the direction of action, extending an action from one panel to another. It's a swordswinger and a fistpuncher fighting each other.

1st panel to 2nd panel action is a big sword swing from right to left, against the reading direction. Sword figure missed! Brawler dodged!

3rd to 4th panel is the riposte. Puncher makes good on armed person's overswing, and leaps forward! The action goes from the bottom left panel, All the way up to the top right one, in reading order. It's an absolutely massive uppercut, perfectly timed. The scrapper has socked their opponent clean in the jaw, and they go flying!

It's very clever layout, and I love it~

A one-bit-per-pixel plot of X and Y from a deceptively short simple function. Despite the simplicity, it appears to show an army of large and small pentagons facing off against an army of crenellated space invaders across a diagonal battlefront.

The armies appear to be made up of little Christian crosses, on both sides.

"This issue forms the only platform, the only definition they have, attracts the only spotlight, airtime and print coverage they can get, and without it they are nothing, and simply disappear.

Stonewall, likewise, is making good money "advising" on these issues. But the whole crowd cannot amount to more than a few thousand souls."

"This is a blood sport for non-combatants, not a real culture war.

"Who, whom?" was Lenin's guiding question. Who gains, at whose expense? I discern three groups of gainers. First there are Stonewall and the serious trans activists and self-appointed spokesmen for other nebulous organisations. Can you remember any of their names?"

The scene fades to a view of the street with a central island being built and sections blocked off to create bike lanes left and right. The scene fades again showing the central island with grass and trees, the bike lane barriers have grass and flowers too. Cars are only on one side of the street now and there are cyclists in both bike lanes.

Schrödinger's road space

Taking away space from cars while giving them more space at the same time

An animation of a 13-lane wide road. It shows how after converting one lane to a bus lane and another to a bike lane, people switch from cars to buses and bikes, greatly reducing traffic.

At the end only one lane has cars and even it has little traffic.

The empty lanes are replaced with a text: leaving more urban space for plazas, housing, parks and much more…

@Radical_EgoCom #ALT4you It's cute how people will say “Why should a fast food worker get paid $15 an hour when a paramedic gets paid $15 an hour for saving someones life?" instead of "How come a paramedic gets paid $15 an hour while a 30 minute ambulance ride costs $900?" Wow, it looks like the fast food worker, the paramedic, and the person in the ambulance are all getting fricked and somehow mad at each other about it instead of being mad at the people who are profiting off them.

Statement from Congressman Gerry Connolly on District Office Attack

Fairfax, VA - Congressman Gerry Connolly (D-VA) released the following statement:

"This morning, an individual entered my District Office armed with a baseball bat and asked for me before committing an act of violence against two members of my staff. The individual is in police custody and both members of my team were transferred to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Right now, our focus is on ensuring they are receiving the care they need. We are incredibly thankful to the City of Fairfax Police Department and emergency medical professionals for their quick response.

"I have the best team in Congress. My District Office staff make themselves available to constituents and members of the public every day. The thought that someone would take advantage of my staff's accessibility to commit an act of violence is unconscionable and devastating."

The Paradox of tolerance disappears if you look at tolerance, not as a moral standard, but as a social contract.

If someone does not abide by the terms of the contract, then they are not covered by it.

In other words: The intolerant are not following the rules of the social contract of mutual tolerance.

Since they have broken the terms of the contract, they are no longer covered by the contract, and their intolerance should NOT be tolerated.
