Thanks for this one. It was exactly what I needed to read today.

    But if you are in an online space allowing user content I'd start preparing for a shitstorm

There are some things inherent to Hubski's design the slow proliferation of this kind of thing. First of all - hubski doesn't host anything but the text... so I guess if someone started posting a bunch or erotica based on children we could/should get concerned.

I remember very clearly stumbling on a post years ago with a title of something like "I wonder if we'll find a home for like minded people here" and it was a terribly graphic photo of a victim of violence. I don't remember if I replied to the post, but I certainly reached out to mk on the side and I believe he deleted the post.

Eventually - if you post a bunch of stuff that people find objectionable, you get ignored into oblivion.

I was planning a trip to Urumqi with my dad... in the last six months, I've read enough to be appropriately spooked about going there now.

There's still a chance we'll make the trek - but it's at least a little unnerving,

steve  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: Why Are Gender Reveal Parties a Thing?

please help me understand the current definition of "gender" vs. "sex". Somewhere along the way, I feel like the definitions have evolved, and have gained some emotional gravity that I'm ignorant about. I don't want to go around offending people by using the wrong term in the wrong way. (and I'm being completely genuine and vulnerable here).

    Park Place sent me an email this morning letting me know they've got a "Black Friday Special" on a used McLaren 650S.

and clearly you needed to act right away on such a bargain...

ha! Thanks for the chuckle.

when were you here?

I just spit my water all over my desk... thank you.

I hate that my son and his friends are obsessed with Post Malone. PM is like the anthem writer for middle class white kids frustrated with the tyranny of high school teachers...

I've debated sending him this article, but I fear it would only entrench his stance.
