“Non-Natives act like we entered the world the day after they landed on Plymouth Rock, like they brought us into creation and are teaching us to be almost but not quite as good as them.” Powerful and super interesting essay by @rjjago 

This essay reminded me of an email I got last week saying we would “still be living in caves without Western society” and it was like, Europeans didn’t invent housing my guy, but thanks for making my case about the issues with historical education

@benFsinger  The latter bit is always an issue. So many times we work to develop trust with someone in a sensitive situation to tell their story, and then we also have to prepare them for like “oh and don’t read the comments we will give space for right with the story.” It’s not tenable.

My best friend has spent years diligently playing those scammy carnival games with one purpose: to win a Pikachu in every size available. This is his collection. It is nearly complete.

I’m no forensic psychologist, but I’m going to take a flier here and suggest that a person who allegedly murders 12 people and rapes, tortures and terrorizes at least 50 women had issues beyond a broken engagement

So @jack , Twitter's going good these days, hey?
