The Troubles with Gender | Skepchick
If gender is a social construct, it is so for everyone regardless of being cis, trans or otherwise. We all navigate the same landscape of expressions and limitations. It is not the responsibility of every single trans person to be subversive of heteronormativity. Holding trans people to a higher standard than other people is simply put hypocrisy.

I spent a weekend at Google talking with nerds about charity. I came away … worried. - Vox
If effective altruism does a lot more of that, it can transform philanthropy and provide a revolutionary model for rigorous, empirically minded advocacy. But if it gets too impressed with its own cleverness, the future is far bleaker.

In this plutocrat's playground of a city, it's good to know there's still a commune to call home
The Tea And Pronouns chart made me aware of my own prejudices in a new way. I do not judge people who prefer to be known as 'they' rather than 'he' or 'she.'  I judge people who prefer blueberry tea over the proper sort with the squinty eyes of unreconstructed bias.

"Where's My Cut?": On Unpaid Emotional Labor - The Toast
Housework is not work. Sex work is not work. Emotional work is not work. Why? Because they don’t take effort? No, because women are supposed to provide them uncompensated, out of the goodness of our hearts.

And I've finally found a home
In a handful of people I was lucky enough to bump into
We act like pessimists but we're in love with it

And I'm in love with you
And our tiny bed in the upstairs front room
Of a rundown terrace house
Which is obviously perfect as it sounds

Even in the summer
When the cardboard window that you tape on everyday
Falls out and wakes us up

OK, Grace. — New research shows 0.6% of rape allegations are...
“Furthermore, the report shows that a significant number of these cases involved young, often vulnerable people. About half of the cases involved people aged 21 years old and under, and some involved people with mental health difficulties. In some cases, the person alleged to have made the false report had undoubtedly been the victim of some kind of offence (sic), even if not the one which he or she had reported.”

The Light Asservancy Game (furialog)
We have played this game for rather extended periods, with a three-year-old's giddy enthusiasm for escalating repetition, long enough a couple times for me to get a little worried that I might be really upsetting her with the extremes of abnegation, but each time I have tried to stop, she has instantly switched out of character and indignantly demanded that I go back to playing the game correctly.

Eulogy for youth
That first taste of euphoria—those indefinable transcendent moments that begin on the cusp of adulthood and chase us into our twenties—is a drug of its own. An elusive, essentially transient glimpse at what could anchor our world—the promise of fantastic possibility with no instruction of how to make that real, no map for the grunt work to follow.

Ursula K. Le Guin Calls On Sci Fi and Fantasy Writers to Envision Alternatives to Capitalism by Araz Hachadourian — YES! Magazine
“We live in capitalism,” said Le Guin, “Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings.” It’s up to authors, she explains in the video below, to spark the imagination of their readers and to help them envision alternatives to how we live.

Magic Saved My Life
Happiness is about relationships, and relationships are about accomplishing things with other people. I was once too broken to have real relationships, but Magic fixed me. The whole idea is reductive, but there's a lot of truth to the sentiment.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica The Movie: Rebellion / Headscratchers - TV Tropes
Yes, what she did was wrong, but what was the alternative? Letting Kyubey and his people eventually control the Law of Cycles and bring back the Witches, thus enslaving or destroying Madoka and consuming the souls of countless others until someone else manages to find a way to change the rules, which won't matter because the Incubators will already have the means and knowledge to control God. Yes, Madoka is in a gilded cage and that is Homura's fault, but that's why it's called Rebellion and not For the Evulz.
