* Look, I found the NYC Parks Department tweet about erections, no matter how small being banned in New York Parks as funny as everyone else did, but then I looked at the statue. I'm deeply uncomfortable with it. I have never been fond of attacks on politicians that involve nudity. Y'all know how deeply I dislike Sarah Palin and everything she stood for, but I really didn't like the sexualized attacks on her and things like the porn parody her own side was wanking to. Trump's actions and opinions are absolutely odious and should be the subject of ridicule of all kinds, but I am wildly uncomfortable with the body shaming aspect of this prank and particularly the depiction of him as a trans man. Trust me, we don't want him any more than we want Anne Coulter, who has been frequently been the subject of transmisogynitic attacks from the left. I do not know that the Anarchist collective making these statues was consciously aware of the transphobic aspect of what they were doing. I strongly suspect they were not thinking of us transfolk at all, but I look at those pictures and footage and I see the fat shaming and mocking of genitalia on a body that looks like the body of an awful lot of transmen, and I get queasy.

We on the left need to be better than this, folks. Let’s try to be.

* I was rewatching Black Sails and got to the Season Two Finale and kept thinking, "Fun with Flint and Vane!"

* In related news, I spotted enough things, that I likely will be doing a 1-3 retrospective at some point this fall. I never did first season properly and I spotted lots of details and parallels I missed.

* Wow, NBC fucked up the Rhythmic gymnastics finals. They preempted individual for random highlights of boring things I wasn't interested in, so I didn't get to see it at all. Then for the team final they decided to deliberately pick a camera angle so high and far away that for the most part the apparatus was invisible. You could see the hoops occasionally when they threw them high enough and Ukraine was all in black so it was slightly better, but for most colour schemes it was people doing oddly choreographed ballet with really strange arm movements. One couldn't even properly see the dancing for teams like Russia with particularly pale colour schemes. How do I know it was deliberate? Because they would tease us with tiny clips properly shot from the other two cameras they had set up in instant replay for some groups while they were waiting for the scores and would occasionally cut to them for a couple seconds during the routine. That means someone in the booth looked at the three camera angles: two of which allowed you to see faces, costumes, and apparatus, and decided that five blurs with pale legs and arms against pale background and no visible apparatus was the way to go. Imagine if they deliberate broadcast a basketball game shot on a professional network where you couldn't see the ball and it was from so far away you couldn't tell what the players are doing or why. I can only assume NBC made this choice as a big fuck you to athletes who just spent the last four years of their lives polishing those routines and to the fans who waited four years to finally get to see them.

Fuck, you, NBC! Seriously, you had ONE JOB, and this Olympics you consistently fucked it up with racist and sexist commentary, refusal to properly show non American athletes in things like men's gymnastics, and now, deliberately throwing away footage allowing people to actually see the competition in favour of footage so bad it made frustrating nonsense out of the whole thing. Fuck you, NBC. If you can't do this competently, let someone else do it who can!

* I was over the shakes by bed time yesterday and the last of the fever faded away while I slept. I'm still feeling crap, but a better class of crap and my lungs are noticeably starting to clear. I am exhausted, but the upward trend is clear. It's a long strong course of antibiotics, so I know I'll be medicine sick later in the process, but it is so worth it.

When Tavy first came he was wearing a collar, but I stopped hearing it after the first day or two, and there was no sign of it when he finally emerged from hiding. I found it while searching for the mice he's hidden, but no small mice for his puzzle box have been found. Squirrel found his donkey last night and I put it in his puzzle box, but he hasn't touched it. I wish I could afford more, but I bought fish filters for the office tank and a replacement bulb for my bathroom tank instead, once the credit card payment cleared, and that's pretty much it for the month for the beastie budget.

Update: A little before 7PM, LM actually figured out how to fish the donkey out of the puzzle box and had a nice time playing with it. I gave her a dental treat when she was done as a reward. I hope this is a trend. She could use both the physical and mental excercise.

2nd Update: At 10PM, I realized I haven't coughed in hours, and I hadn't come close to blacking out from lack of oxygen since yesterday. 17 hours previous, the cough was nigh constant. I have not gone this long without coughing since December. Antibiotics are magic. Let's stop feeding them to cattle to make them fat and save them so they can keep killing illnesses.

Aly's going make another attempt at the medal she was robbed of in London! Lauren Hernandez is brilliant and when her Mom started crying I started crying! I know it's stupid to be this emotionally invested in a cannibal sport, but there is something amazing about watching something so beautiful and so close to the edge of what is humanly possible. I know all the things wrong with the Rio Olympics, including the shitastic politics there that robbed teachers and other hard working people of a living wage to build venues that are going to be crumbling wrecks in four years, the health concerns, the safety concerns, and all the rest of it, but still, it is hard not to get excited about seeing all the gymnastics competitions.

* Today was terrible sleep between the pain and Hector holding a six hour sleep protest. I dragged myself out to mail the ebays, and do library, meds, and detergent. There was no singleton tofukey for sale, just the Feast set, which I avoid as I do not want or need substandard brownies at that price. It turns out there is a manufacturer shortage, so I’ll have to keep checking back. I’ve been craving tofurkey for about three months and have just enough left on EBT to buy one assuming they ever return to the shop and don’t sell out immediately. I have sufficient lung meds now to stop rationing which is good as I very nearly passed out at dinner last night. I did a bunch of small, necessary tasks around the house anyway, despite the meds barely denting the pain. I have hopes of money transferring Monday or Tuesday in time for cat litter, more cat food, lightbulbs, and toothpaste. *fingers crossed*

When I got home I found some kind person had gifted me a copy of a World of Ice and Fire, which I need for reference on Game of Bones, which means I can stop monopolizing a library copy. I do not know which of you to thank, but the gift is most appreciated and it is already in my reference shelf I keep handy to the computer.

So excruciating pain, but progress!

* Today I went out to get meds and detergent. The leaves are starting to turn despite the heat, and it actually smelled vaguely autumnal, a mix of wood smoke and wet and leaves. Finally. It's been Spring since January and Summer since February thanks to climate change and we just lost a month of Autumn. Today I made fry up with nearly the last of the collards, but what turned out to be too many serrano peppers, which I was hoping would balance the potatoes. I over balanced, but it's all good, I've added noodles for later and I could just eat it as it was. I found vegetarian dark chocolate marshmallow things while I was out and spent a dollar I shouldn't have on them, them being rare indeed. Omnomnom.

* Can we take a moment to appreciate the Rev. Barber? He's been tireless in his organization of opposition to the stripping away of Voting and human rights by republicans in north Carolina. By choosing to organize the NAACP in his his area to defend the basic Rights of LGBTQA people of colour he shamed the national Organization into starting to look out for the welfare of all members of the community instead of just the straight cis ones. he is a man of great grit and character. He is also doing all this with Ankylosing Spondalytis which means he is in constant, often excruciating pain. Each second he is standing or walking, he is doing it in constant searing pain. her is standing up for all of us to make a better world at great personal cost. How can I do other than admire him.

* I know this sounds like concern trolling, but Sarah Palin's incoherent word salad really worries me on her behalf. I am hoping she was drunk, because it sounded a little like some people I've known with stroke aphasia. I don't like her, but I wouldn't wish serious brain damage on anyone. It gives me chills to watch her unable to put sentences together, stinging words together that make no sentence, over and over. Yes, some of her speech was the usual string of nonsense buzz words and lies that she and Michelle Bachman specialize in. That's not what I mean. I mean the sequence where she kept trying to make sentences and random ungrammatical words came out in the rhythm of speech but making no sense at all. It genuinely alarmed me. I hope she's okay. If she was just drunk or high as fuck, It's okay to laugh, but if it's brain damage we're all assholes, so I'm not sure how to react here.
