So there's this absolute scumbag in North Carolina who hates gay people, and also happens to be blind.

In the last few days I've seen a ton of people mock him for not looking at cameras, or 'the weird way he moves his eyes.' It's a textbook example of why focusing criticism on someone's physical traits is never a good idea.

Most folks I've pointed this out to are suitably chagrined, and I appreciate them <3. A few try to defend themselves. He's a scumbag, so there's no holes barred on insulting him, right? No.

When we mock a bad person for being blind, or fat, or trans, we're telling everyone with those traits that we secretly think they're less than wholly human. Maybe we won't admit it so long they remain "good," but we've admitted that it's there under the surface.

Dear Chicago,
Not everyone in the city needs to run for mayor. Just a few would've sufficed.
Exasperatedly,

@mym for it to be useful for crowding we'd need to have settled all available land no matter how inhospitable and also the shallow oceans

further unpopular opinion: for a space colony somewhere without a biosphere to be a useful "backup" we'd need to be facing a disaster that would totally destroy the biosphere here

unpopular opinion: manned space exploration is an expensive boondoggle driven by fiction, robots do it better

The kinds of things which the Russian government is now doing to its internet I expect the UK to be doing within five years to ten years. That is, to try to lock everything down into a "national internet" with only approved systems running.
