We know that whenever 45 accuses someone of something, it means he did it. He also said today that he totally did this stuff and it will be "going out tonight." So basically he is the lazy one and is lying that President Obama is as lazy as he himself, which is obviously bullshit. Again. Sigh.

For the record I am simultaneously in the always bring home PoWs if possible camp AND the he absolutely deserves prison for desertion camp, an opinion shared my the last of my ex-marine friends in my social circle.

(I have over the years had friends in all four branches plus the coast guard. I had a lover who was army who died. Most of these friends are dead or drifted now, but I have some left. My Uncle who just died was in the military helping people just returned from Vietnam. My grandfather was WWII naval intelligence. I had relatives in all our country’s wars from Vietnam back to the revolution. I mention this as my politics may lead to some assumptions about my background).

* I got a really fascinating Rasmussen poll tonight. They asked the usual demographic stuff and the obligatory right direction/wrong direction/economic/how is the President doing stuff, that some poll asks at lest every quarter, but this one included workplace sexual harassment, Bowe Bergdahl, and a number of other things. I will be fascinated to see the results when they are published.

* I rather love it that Carrie Fisher's RL friends respond to people spouting sexist nonsense about Star Wars with photos of her giving the finger. It keeps her memory alive in exactly the right way.

* It would be super helpful if people writing about George R. R. Martin's writing would not chose titles that make it look like he'd just died. It gave me a terrible jolt when I logged on today. Just saying. Jesus fuck, people, pay attention to what you are writing.

I was going to be super short sleeped anyway today, but the insomnia sto;le about half. I still managed to drag myself out on time, just, with the help of extra anti-nausea meds. The line to the fast route was unexpectedly long, so I took the back roads and lucked out with traffic and lights. There was parking there, the pharmacy, the library, and the grocery, so that was all a relief. Alas, I turned left out of habit instead of right after forage, which was less efficient for gas and everyone was driving both impatiently and as if they forgot how. I was very nearly sideswiped twice by people suddenly trying to change lanes into the place my car happened to be. That sort of thing. I'd ascertained in advance that the apricot straws ere still o, so I had to get about a quarter of the bang for half my apricot straw money. Let us hope rationing carries me until the supply chain hold up ends. I am exhausted and achey and as i wrote this I hadn't eaten or put the groceries away. I want to go to bed, but no hope of that. Sigh. It is looking like I am having guests for my party Wednesday. Cleaning is snail's paced, but I've sorted most of the living room at least.

The Republican argument is that anyone protesting against the murder of innocent unarmed people by imitating the green Beret gesture for their fallen is by definition disrespecting the flag and the country.

* ToS Rewatch, Season 2:

- I, Mudd. I don't know how I'm supposed to feel about McCoy saying those shitty things to Spock in the opener. Is it meant to be funny? I ask because it seems cruel for no reason. So creepy sexist conman, Harry Mudd, send androids to steal the ship and kidnap command crew. I know this is technological and not Godlike aliens, but it feels rather samey as the episode right after catspaw. Seriously the sexism hurts my teeth and is really hard to sit through even though it's from the villain. I get that it's meant to be funny at the expense of Mudd, but it's all just horrifying. And of course Uhura is tempted by the "eternal youth, eternal beauty." The sexist stereotypes aren't limited to the Andriods. At least she rejects it ultimately. And of course their leader is male. Sigh. Can these androids consent given they have to obey Mudd? I'm guessing yes as they eventually give the humans a big no, but Chekhov didn't know that. I am so grateful for Spock's deadpan here. I am amused by Kirk's first attempt being to logic fry them as that always worked before, but them being too smart for it. Alas, more extreme nonsense works. :( It's not that I want the robots to win, but they always solve computer problems with some variation of this. It WAS excellent nonsense at least instead of the usual perfunctory Kirk nonsense.

* So when I was training to be a teacher, they told us never, ever take a student anywhere in your personal car, no matter what the emergency. If you are alone in a room with a student, leave the door open if there are no hallway windows to let random passersby peer in. (With some students with severe disabilities needing to be taken to the bathroom this isn't always possible, but more than one life skills department I know of used to do pottying in pairs or groups whenever they could. In our profession, even the appearance that something is slightly off is enough to ruin a career so the sensible thing is to make sure there is never any occasion that is even slightly ambiguous regardless of the gender or age of the student. It was geometrically more important for male teachers especially in elementary, given the assumptions people tend to make, but we were all trained that way regardless of our genders and the ages we were teaching. Transparency was safer for them and safer for us. There is reason this is standard in my state. We could still have private conversation about things they might not want generally known like bullying, eating disorders, cheating, drugs, etc. but any one wandering past could see us having a conversation. The newest schools have hallway windows, which I adore as you can watch your kids when they are spread out for projects and admins can check to see if everything is okay without coming in and disrupting things. It seems to me that this would be a much better practice in a variety of industries. Particularly Hollywood. Just saying.

* I actually got good sleep today, which I needed, especially as today I went to try to sort out the TV. I got ten dollars out on the way, as the bank still had tellers and I really needed gas. I arrived at the library as they were setting up, first in line. Alas, this did not sav me as people who they didn't finish last time go first. I alternated reading and doing my best charming strangers routine. He worked on my bit in the gaps while he waited for things to set on a mixer he was fixing. It was the same model my Mother had when I was a child. I learned to bake with it. The mixer was healed, and I was glad to see it still in service and still loved by the nice lady who had it, the span of my lifetime away from it's manufacture. My guy did all he could, but the tV specialist had a TV they didn't finish last time, so he didn't have much time left to work on it. Between them, it's a whole list of things we know for sure aren't the problem. I'm to bring it back in November.

There was an indigenous mother and a delightful, clearly mechanical genius child who came. I think the boy was in Second grade, but I could be wrong by a year either way. She was doing a lot of enrichment with him and generally reminded me of my mother in her parenting style. The little dude was going to be doing a special program soon where they got to fix electronics and was really exited to be at the library on fixing stuff night. He got to see what was inside all the things and they let him use the volt meter and everyone wa willing to explain stuff. I showed him my sound circuit board and my visual circuit board and explained the bits he'd missed, and then he went over to look at the larger, more expensive version, which was also open to be fixed so he could compare the innards. So well behaved and just so excited to learn stuff. The future.

Anyway, this ate my whole evening and it was long past dark and chilly enough I wished I brought my coat. I got gas at the cheap place which I very much need to last the month as I shouldn't be spending anything at all on non-bill medical things. (I've saved enough EBT for my apricot straws and something for my Birthday). The trip there takes me past my house along this long road, past a small organic farm and a bunch of houses with lots of vegetation. My end of town has lots of small green spaces, drainage ditches with trees and lush vegetation, streams, and the University campus up the hill. There is a sort of gradual blend into the big parks and the real wilderness of the Mountains beyond. Thus, we have urban deer. I saw the doe up ahead in more than enough time, the road being straight, the speed being relatively low, and her having nearly made it across, I slowed and she stepped delicately up onto the sidewalk and stood staring as I passed.

Of course the parking was gone. I was cold and tired and thirsty and hadn't eaten or lunged. Pills needed sorting. I'd eaten all the ripe tomatoes. Tavy was beside himself, having missed me and also clearly having been bored which made all the necessary things that much more exiting. Poor wee beastie. The annual packet from management has come. I read it and mailed out my stuff. I really should get it together to go to this years meeting, but I haven't managed it even once yet. Sigh.

I am also strongly suspecting they are queer baiting us with Troy and nick. I don't like either of them and I have no prurient interest in this ship, but that doesn't make it okay giving the shitty quality of Queer Representation in this franchise (both shows) and the shortage of bisexual male characters in general. Don't toy with me unless you plan to deliver. It's the 21st fucking Century, teasing isn't enough. Do or don't do.

I miss Black Sails so much!

* The Book of the Unnamed Midwife was brilliant! It was a really compelling story, and it was really good to see a post-apocolyptic setting where all the queer folk didn't mysteriously die so quick they were never mentioned. We get a bisexual protagonist, plenty of queer folk here and there, multiple poly relationships, and a strong feminist structural design. I do need to warn people that there is rape and a little pedophilia off screen, though not described in a prurient way, and it is made very clear that rapists are terrible people and decent people fight them.

* Doctor Who Rewatch (3rd Doctor): The Spearhead from Space episodes speak well of the NHS, I think. They found an unconscious, possibly indigent man in the woods and look at the quality of care they attempt to give him. no way would he be treated as well over here to our National shame. I had... not realize just how much of third Doctor we get to see in his second episode. Was that his body or did they use a body double for the shower scene, I wonder? I kind of love that it takes no modifications at all to make the ordinary process of industrial doll making look appropriately creepy.

* Look, I know nothing about the Inhumans except for the new show. I was DC growing up. I literally didn't know Inhumans was a thing until they started promos. I am not trolling here, and I'd love for someone familiar to the franchise to explain if the fleeing Royals are meant to be the good guys. The show is framing things as if we are meant to the heroes, but they are tyrant who have enslaved a large portion of the population in the mines. Their justification for this horrific (in)human rights abuse is that they have limited resources on the moon and therefore they can't afford not enslaving people, which is clearly a lie, as enslaved people on the moon are still taking up resources like food, water, and oxygen. It's a transparant attempt to justify the unjustifiable. If they were really resource poor and wanting to avoid contact between people with powers and Earth humans without, wouldn't it make sense to set up a colony on earth? I've seen abandoned towns for sale now and then here in the US. Private Islands are still a thing, and there are also options like a flottilla in international waters. The Amazon jungle still exists and they have stealth technology sufficient to make a secret domed settlement. They could use this as a way to culturally acclimate before gradually making themselves known if they want to do that later. So why don't they do that instead of slavery? Slavery is never the fuck okay and this is clearly a choice on the part of the royal family as part of a eugenicist genocide. Fuck that! Seriously.

I'm not saying what's his face the usurper is the good guy either what with the murder, attempted murder, etc.. It's just that so far, the only decent people we've seen are the people of Hawaii (which I do approve of).

Is everyone except Native Hawaiians evil in the comics, or did the show runners do that without noticing that they are glorifying slavery?

* One of the things about being "That House" is that neighbors on walks slow down to look at my decorations, nearly always smiling, and in that twilight period between me turning on the lights and the full dark setting in, I often find myself looking into their faces as the stare in my front window. The sensation is strangely intimate and more than a little peculiar, looking into the faces of strangers and seeing their enjoyment from so close and yet on the other side of a screen/glass. I wonder if this is how the chimpanzees feel in the zoo and delighted strangers wander pass their enclosure day after day.

* That thing towards the beginning of Gifted were the parents threaten to sue the school to the ground if they don't put a stop to the bullying right now? Those of you who are long time readers will know that is what I always advise parents do when there kid is being picked on. I know y'all are sick of hearing this, but it really is the best way to protect your kids, especially if you kid is LGBTQIA or another minority. Hand write a dated, contemporaneous log of all incidents. Threaten to sue. Get a lawyer if they don't step up. It is the fastest way to get a school culture to change not jut for your student, but for every student who comes after. take no shit. Accept no shared blame. Make yourself a thorn in their side, a potentially incredibly expensive thorn. Public Schools are by definition short of funds and it is cheaper to retrain staff and provide admin guidance than it is to fight and worse yet lose a law suit. Some will inevitably fight in red areas particularly, but most won't, and either way you win and so does your kid and all the ones coming up behind them.

* Today was the Doctor and a bunch of small, exhausting things involving long lines. They did not have my apricot straws and I am entirely out of them too. My Doctor was booked solid for two weeks and then on vacation, so I was forced to see a back up, luckily one who used to cover me a while back during the great practitioner shortage. Given the size and complexity of my medical history, it is a mess dealing with strange Doctors. As is often the case when I make an appointment, my lungs and breathing improved in the night, but too late to cancel, and then got worse when I got home. *facepalm* Let us hope I'm finally kicking this thing. If not, I have my marker in and there is a reasonable chance of me being able to go through the nurse if I end up needing the antibiotics after all.

* So it looks like Tom Petty really is dead. The premature announcement that distressed his family was a shitty thing to do, which is why I just posted some of his music on Tumblr Monday night, but the Tuesday confirmation looked solid. I keep thinking about the way my sister and I felt about "Don't Come around here no more." There was feminist protest at the imagery, but talking amoung ourselves, we thought it was a pretty accurate depiction of how it felt for her to be a girl in our culture. To us the changing proportions symbolized the way women and girls were constantly dealing with rules endlessly changed to disadvantage them. We took the carving up like cake to be a pretty solid indictment of the competing demands and expectations on girls and women and the way men so often treat women as objects to be consumed. My Sister and I watched that video and we Sympathized with Alice, not the Hatter, whereas a lot of people read it as endorsement of patriarchy. More proof that anything can mean anything depending on on's point of view.

In any case, it sounds like he had really gotten his life together and was having a great time, and I am sorry for his friend and family left behind.

* As is often the case in the absence of information, there is a lot of wild speculation about the motive behind the mass shooting in Las Vegas. As usual, my policy is to wait for actual information instead of letting assumptions and prejudice run ahead of what is known. Mistakes in this area can do a lot of harm. My policy is also not to name shooters because glamorizing these cowards only encourages more. My focus is, as always, on the victims. This is where the focus ought to be. So many were injured and killed. They and their families deserve the attention, not the waste of skin who did this.

* The Masters and Johnson Cavett interview is genuinely fascinating and not something I saw as I child, though my mother occasionally referenced it. I wonder if it played a role in my Mother's relaxed acceptance of me. She was sex positive, body positive, pro-choice just generally at least since her late teens, but I wonder if exposure to intelligent, educated people speaking clinically about equality between types of sexuality and genders helped her make a leap that was so much more of a struggle for my father. She was exactly the sort of person who would take Masters and Johnson and Kinsey's word over societal prejudice. (My father's context was a huge element in his struggle there. He was a working class Jersey boy born early in WWII. I remember him and his BFF talking about how shaken they were at seeing Superman kiss Michael Caine. He worked really hard at fighting the prejudices instilled in him as a child, along with certain things from his personal history, and he hated the irrationality of some of his reactions. This didn't stop him periodically losing his shit over my dating life or the screaming fights we occasionally had over AIDS and AIDS policy in my teens. It was if I had been perfectly designed to push certain of his buttons just by going around being me. Don't worry, things worked out, it just took a bunch of adjustment and work on his part). My mom, being observant, realized I was some variety of queer round about when I figured it out when I was about the age of three or four. She didn't guess the right labels or the complexity of what she was looking at, but she was in the right ballpark and not particularly surprised when things were adequately explained to her. (Non-binary gender not having been something she was exposed too).

Something I particularly appreciate watching the interview is how careful they are to underline that laboratory conditions are never going to be the same as privacy in one's own home conditions and the limits of their research method. I am also just really liking Virginia Johnson as a person. One can really see how essential she must have been to the research as far as convincing people to participate, diplomacy with authorities, and explaining the work.

Unfortunately, they are on the side of nurture over nature for orientation and rather gender binary essentially. I think Masters is confusing expression of sexuality (what specifically one enjoys in bed) with orientation(what gender or genders a person is attracted to). Masters really does seem to confuse sex and gender. Sigh. At least the bisexuals aren't invisible to them. It was nice to see Johnson speak of the damage treating homosexuality as pathology does to people, but I have a lot of frustration with the limits of their world view, and I'd like to see the evidence for people learning orientation. I was strongly unidirectional as far back as I can remember, which is a pretty long way. Just saying. Also, it's 1979 for fuckssake talk to some trans people. Cavett's wording is wince making, but at least he's challenging them on the no one is born that way hypothesis. It was good to see them strongly against conversion therapy and insistent that homosexuality is a natural sexual expression. It's a mess, but it could have been so much worse.

* Today I was up too damned early for Harvest Tourney on Game of Bones. My afternoon thing was cancelled so I caught up on some stuff and then finished the Gothmas display phase II which takes me forever, gimp that I am and ended up involving closet reorg.

I still need to do night photos, but here is at dusk: http://gwydionmisha.tumblr.com/post/165955077952/today-i-was-up-too-damned-early-for-harvest
