On another note I added something a bit personal. I also donated to the Transverse Myelitis Association. They’re also usually pretty underfunded and could use some support.

The Transverse Myelitis Association advocates for people who have Acute Disseminated Encephalomyelitis (ADEM), Neuromyelitis Optica (NMO), Optic Neuritis (ON), Transverse Myelitis (TM) and Recurrent Transverse Myelitis, and their caregivers.

I’m not going to tag anyone. I’m just going to ask that you donate what and where you can and spread the word.

Due to some of the vile shit being spouted by certain high-profile media brand cofounders, and the steady torrent of ignorance and bullshit being perpetrated by empty-skulled administrators, let’s review.

THE SEVEN CONTEXTS IN WHICH IT IS APPROPRIATE TO USE TRANS* HATE SPEECH

1) when describing a specific automobile problem I.e. “That tranny is busted.”

2) when speaking ill of Neil Young’s failed 1982 album-length experiment in electronic music: "Trans is awful and anyone who thinks otherwise is insane."

3) when reminiscing with your college friend about your failed startup idea from the early 00’s that was meant to compete with Yahoo and AOL’s messaging platforms but from a uniquely female perspective; "SheMail was a failed experiment from the beginning. It just felt affected and weird."

4) when, as a television executive, you are admitting that the pilot episode of the buddy cop show which is about a seasoned detective teamed up with a baby bird may not make the cut; "Chick With A Dick is gonna have to go."

5) When trying to support a particular member of the Addams family about a new self-imposed depilatory program; "It hasn’t removed enough body hair, It really isn’t even trying."

6) When, in the inevitable misandrist utopia, men are ground up as an ingredient in paint and someone uses said paint to signify, by means of daubing a set of symbols on their lintel, where on a particular road their dwelling is located: "That is a man-in address right there."

7) Literally nowhere else.
