I think I've done this before but here goes: I'm Janani, genderqueer aroace potato. Pronouns: They/them. I usually yell about books, TV, storytelling, gender stuffs, representation, mental health, alcohol, and coffee.

I'll be on here doing what I do best- yell about books, representation in media, mental health stuff, gender, and sexuality stuff. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Man I need to get on my freelance game to keep my sanity.

Shatabdi is a great train to travel between Bangalore and Chennai but good god it is too early for this.

This isn't even an issue of taste—Bryan Stevenson's book is simply better and addresses timely and more important issues than yours does. Get over it.

It angers me especially BECAUSE literary meritocracy is an ACTUAL problem. Teen girls' reading tastes being considered inferior is an ACTUAL problem. Internalised misogyny is an ACTUAL problem. But you're co-opting all these things, and being racist along the way, because somebody doesn't like your book? Go off, I guess.

White women TIRE me because they will go as far as to intentionally withhold context to skew the narrative and then yell "internalised misogyny" if anybody disagrees. STOP WEAPONISING FEMINISM FOR AN EGO BOOST.

Authors have no business being in reviewer spaces. If you come across a review that hurts your feelings, talk to your friends, keep it in your DMs. Why the hell would anyone feel safe to be honest about their reasder feelings if you're gonna barge in and put them on blast to be villified and doxxed?

YA twitter is having a whole ass meltdown over this Sarah Dessen situation and honestly I am just disappointed to see SO MANY marginalized authors jump to defend her when she's deliberately manipulating the narrative.

The disdain for the poor getting access to education is nauseating AF. Education is a basic human right, a nation which can’t provide it, is a failed nation

So bloody tired. Need to crawl into bed. But also, have been putting off spending time with a friend. Decisions, decisions.

The Brooklyn nine nine season 8 news is great but UGH season 7 needs to be out sooner.

"You must abolish your slavery yourselves.
Do not depend for it's abolition upon God or superman.
Your salvation lies in political powers & not in making pilgrimages & observance of fasts.
Devotion to scriptures would not free you from your bondage, want & poverty."

Somebody explain to me why receiving news about my paper getting published has sent me down a depression spiral. And bringing up intense thought patterns of incompetence.

Big news in #Chile: Piñera just announced that he will start a process for a new constitution with a plebiscite. But first, he is organizing a witch hunt against the people who compelled him to make this concession.

DON'T STOP FIGHTING NOW, CHILE!

How am I on psych meds and still experiencing depressive bouts I would be pissed off except I'm too fucking tired and have no energy to be pissed off about it.
