Quoted @emilyvdw

The following is the last thing I will say on this on Twitter: These two days have been hell. Death threats, rape threats, invitations to commit suicide, constant misgendering, etc. On every platform. The only way I can avoid it is to leave the internet entirely. I can't sleep.

Emily is my friend, and I have so much respect for her.

It fucking sucks that this is happening to her.

Yay for @kvanaren on comfort TV v. prestige TV (which feels like homework rn). As someone who believes only snobs say "guilty pleasure," I endorse! One complaint, tho. These new shows only have 10 episodes! Bring back 24 ep seasons!

totally co-sign this. comfort is often supported by having MANY

I want to state, again, that I want my colleague to keep his job. I like him personally and appreciate his perspective even when I disagree. My perspective is that he is not shielded from the free speech he champions.

Also, Jesse Singal is an asshole.
