makes me so sad to see people thinking africa is
- a country
- a single culture
- completely poverty stricken
- basically any one thing to be honestly africa is a continent and incredibly diverse culturally, nationally, linguistically, racially, and historically like what the hell?

I was writing web content for a client. They make interior furnishings, like lamps and wall clocks.
Me: I’ve written all the content, but I need the images to go with it.
Client: No, we don’t want to put up any pictures of our products.
Me: That’s not advisable, considering the product you’re selling.
Client: If we put up pictures, people will steal our designs. Just write really detailed descriptions of what everything looks like.
Some people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”
By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:
- The entire state of Rhode Island
- Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
- Pacific Islanders
the fact that people think in different accents really gets to me
when an old person starts a sentence by saying “kids these days are so….” or “Well, that’s not how it was back in my day!!”
50% of my jokes are self deprecating and 50% are self congratulatory like i’ll say “wow its hot in here…. just like me” and 5 seconds later point at a trash can and say “me”
