Thanks! That’s nice to hear! And also a good point. Also also I have a few questions in my inbox that I’ll get to when I’m not mobile.
I scored a whopping 3 out of 100 on the empathy portion of the DISC assessment. So generally, no. What the hell kind of question is this?

"Look I pointed out that this person is a horrible, racist/sexist/body exclusionary jerk"
…you don’t get cookies for that? You know that, right?
And—this is key to my annoyance today—you can recognize someone else’s problem and STILL BE A PART OF IT yourself. And in some ways, that makes YOU even worse, in my book.
There is a reason I don’t tote this blog as anything but what it is—a place for me to stash gifs of faces I want to see more of. There is a reason you don’t see a directory from my page toting one attribute or another. Because I don’t like lecturing people on shit I don’t know as fact. I do my research when I can. But an hour on the internet does not make me an expert. It does not make me qualified to speak for or about a group of people I have never personally interacted with or experienced or whatever.
I’m not saying people should stay silent when they see shit that’s not okay—that’s a recipe for all kinds of horrors.
But I AM saying know what you don’t know.
I AM saying come off anon, put your name to what you believe in. Actually risk something to make the world better. Be proud of it. Be willing to be tied to what you’ve said and stand by it.
And I sure as HELL am saying don’t sound like a self righteous shit. Don’t expect cookies. And for the love of the Lord, don’t be WRONG when you are trying to correct someone.
I love Gemma! Awesome face choice.
None of those are perfect, but one of the reasons I love Gemma is she’s so unique! But maybe one of them will work?
I want to be able to direct requests to other people if by any chance I am swamped
