I have a few sticks in my craw lately and don’t know which of them I should post about, or if posting about them would just rile me up worse.
One, Apartheid Beneficiary Musk letting famous transphobic inquisitors look at your DMs. That put me in mind of the way cisheterofash always accuse LGBT+ people of being pedophiles, and the way actual pedophiles get nothing like this level of persecution from them. Actual pedophiles are incredibly commonplace. We all know them, they’re in every community. They would not be hard to hound in this way, to be exposed and have their privacy invaded, to be threatened from all corners. And yet, where is that? Oh yeah, it’s somehow different for right wingers when it’s their dad, their brother, their pastor, their football coach. Somehow he’s the one who can be saved if you just let him off the hook this one time with a promise to be different and never do that thing again.
Two, given how my boyfriend’s life has been enriched by using AI art, the prevalence of irrational and uninformed luddism in that discourse is especially depressing and infuriating. On this site, at least, people pride themselves on being skeptical thinkers. I thought I might leverage that to spread the word about how unfounded the AI hater’s main points are. But focusing on that at the moment? I dunno.
What do you like to see me write about? What’s your preferred GAS content?
