It's been more than a decade since I began thrilling to @beatonna's spectacular, hilarious snark-history webcomic "Hark! A Vagrant," pioneering work that mixed deceptively simple lines, superb facial expressions, and devastating historical humor:… 1/ The cover of the Drawn & Quarterly edition of Kate Beaton's
Beaton developed Hark! into a more explicit political allegory, managing the near-impossible trick of being trenchant and topical while still being explosively funny. 2/
Her second Hark! collection, *Step Aside, Pops*, remains essential reading, if only for her brilliant #StrawFeminists:… 3/

Estoy explorando @joinmastodon pero no dejo twitter x todo lo q he aprendido aquí.

Hay cosas q me gustan bastante:

➡️ Hay menos interferencias (anuncios, trolls, haters)

➡️ y eso hace que el medio sea más propicio al intercambio constructivo, sin postureos

Hay cosas de @joinmastodon que me gustan <:

➡️ Es menos global (dooo de entrada). Es una red de servidores independientes (Fediverse). Tu fuente / audiencia primaria es tu servidor (comunidad)

➡️ Es más difícil buscar: La búsqueda por texto libre no existe

Ambas desventajas 👆🏻 lo son por diseño (buscadas) y son muy útiles para lograr las características que más me gustan de @joinmastodon

Allá no hay algoritmo y tus likes no contribuyen a difundir información ni a priorizarla

Economic Horror (Isssue 999+): Hey, I just became a self-employed writer of middling success. Here’s why, in the US, I’m literally afraid to go pick up the prescription medication I already paid for #contentwarning #economictrauma #medicaldebt #mentalhealth
I’m very lucky and well-supported by a wonderful community of friends, readers, and players. That means I can afford a decent enough plan — which means monthly co-pays in the $400 range.
Keep in mind, this number is based on rebates calculated by my tax predictions (good thing we don’t hold elections or change legslation anymore! Otherwise that would be a terrible system!).

"Why would she wait until now to report the sexual assault?"

A Thread.

#Kavanaugh #RapeCulture #ContentWarning
I write a lot of poems about sexual assault and rape culture. I perform these poems at slams all over the country, and when I do, women come up to me after the slam to tell me their stories.

So I'm not merely speaking about my own experience; this is a collective femme Catch 22.
The pressure is on us to report quickly; but victims are emotionally compromised by the situation.

94% of women who are raped experience symptoms of PTSD in the 2 weeks after the assault.
