I don't know why we have to keep explaining that it can both be true

that we need more female leaders

and that not every single one of them is going to be better than male leaders
like any argument against this basically just boils down to "men should be in charge by default"
it's amazing how many male "leftists" keep responding to calls for more female leadership by being like MARGARET THATCHER HILLARY THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND

okay, status quo defenders
anyway, men shouldn't be in charge of anything, and that goes double for leftist orgs/circles/podcasts/whatever
because whenever they are, they just seem to take all the *language* of justice and change and twist it to defend keeping everything exactly the way it is except for the one thing they want

here's a thought, Dan (and fellow cis people in general):

cis people don't get to decide what is and isn't transphobic (and you should know that intent doesn't matter)

if a bunch of trans people are saying you've done/said transphobic shit, you've done/said transphobic shit
And, like, I'm not going to police how trans people talk about transphobia, but it seems like when cis people get accused of transphobia, we jump immediately to "I am not a transphobe," rather than talking about whether we *said/did* transphobic things
And making the conversation about whether or not you fit in the binary, absolute category of "transphobe" makes it really easy to shift the conversation away from what it really should be about, which is behavior.

and also for the 90th time

Jews for Jesus/Messianic "Judaism" isn't Judaism, it's literally a Christian movement started by the Southern Baptist Convention and designed to be a Trojan Horse that eliminates actual Judaism
Like I don’t know how to make this any clearer: there is no branch or version of Judaism that worships Jesus.

Full stop.
And for the most part, it attracts mostly Christians who was to cosplay as Jews (Jews for Jesus with so much as a single Jewish grandparent are in the minority) because it tends to be very HELLO FELLOW KIDS

Thread. Even someone making $400,000 a year has a lot more in common with the rest of us than someone with $10 million.

We also really should talk about how there's a LOT of play in the term "millionaire."
A lot of people seem to throw around the term "millionaire" to mean "anyone with a million dollars."

Which, okay.
You know how much a million dollars in savings gets you as annual income when you're retired?

ah yes, the princely sum of <checks notes> $40,900.

Why Are TTRPGs Like This? (March edition)

1. So, yesterday got off to a banner start with Paizo doing a St. Patrick's Day promotion that was all about booze and featured a monstrous and evil-looking Irish-coded humanoid. Image
Now, IIRC that's the leprechaun art from one of the bestiaries, and not meant to suggest an actual Irish human being, but sans context, that's not at all clear.

And look, I have Irish ancestry and family in Ireland, but I generally don't talk about anti-Irish bigotry...
...because 9 times out of 10, when people DO talk about it, they're trying to use it to shut down discussion of anti-Black racism, & it's not the same thing at all.

That said, that doesn't mean it doesn't exist, isn't wrong, doesn't have an ugly history, & doesn't harm people.

I mean, I'll ask again why so many Christians' faith *requires* Jewish villains.
I was listening to the excellent You're Wrong About series on the book "Michelle Remembers," which sparked the Satanic Panic...

Alas, that flavor of New Atheism is pretty common because New Atheism is white supremacist, and while it might be primarily a reaction against Christianity, it still holds to the view that religion “evolves” in a Darwinian fashion and Christianity is an evolved (superior) form.
See, for example: Image
And so, to New Atheists, an enlightened atheist society basically looks more or less like our current white Christian one, just minus God.
