Is it time again?

Hi, I'm Geoff (he/him). I've been here for a little more than a year, I think.

I write for a living, at a certain large charity in Toronto. I'm in accessible publishing, but I really only have a toe in .

I take pictures. Some of the pictures are of cats. flickr.com/photos/giltay/album

It’s a hot hot hot hot day in parts of North America. If you’re like me, your only access to cooling at home is something like a struggling window unit.

Libraries can be cooling stations if you can get to one. And they mostly won’t kick you out. They’re a place you can be and not buy anything. Keep safe if you can. 💜💜💜💜

Just cause you dont work a high position job that requires a ton of education. Doesnt make you any less important. Your work and labor is valuable. No one deserves to feel and be treated less than because they arent a lawyer or doctor

We trust you have received the usual lecture from your local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

#1) Women, especially women of color and trans women, built the foundations of most of your digital life.
#2) Before you try to help someone with a problem, make sure they actually asked for your assistance.
#3) Others' needs are more important than your convenience.

a trap that only works some of the time is no good because it makes people think that the way past it is to just get lucky

SOMEbody once asked me
To go see Pagliacci
To cure whatever's getting me down
Then I burst into tears despite laughter and the cheers
I am the famous traveling clown

i don't know who needs to hear this but

it is not the job of vulnerable marginalized people to deprogram the alt-right.

our ancestors, our grandparents, our parents, and now us have had our conversations and pleas for humanity denied and ridiculed.

our job now is to rebuild the communities we had torn apart and survive together.

white people out here thinking you're safe from harm are out of your minds, as if they won't start targeting class status, then curly hair, then glasses wearing etc
