"It's not my responsibility to inject my child with chemicals in order for [a child like Maggie] to be supposedly healthy," he said. "As far as I'm concerned, it's very likely that her leukemia is from vaccinations in the first place." - a fucking lunatic

Her leukemia is from vaccinations

Her leukemia is from vaccinations


In the article he also said that how dare your dying child expect to have any form of life involving the outside of her bedroom, including interaction with her immediate family (her infant brother got the measles) and seeking healthcare (he got it while at a clinic)? It's unfortunate but she deserves to die if she goes anywhere where a person with an easily preventable illness who may not have any symptoms has been within the past 2 hours, which is the duration of time measles can survive in the air. I need my child to remain "pure" and free of chemicals except all the chemicals in his food and his drinks and on his clothing and in his toothpaste and in his shampoo and sldkfjslkgj I can't

The world feels so hopeless and bleak these days. I'm unemployed and depressed and every time there's news, global or national or even personal, it seems to be hideous. I keep waiting for things to get better! For us to stop saying that it's okay to murder black teenagers if you find black teenagers scary, or that there's no more racism wink wink so let's stop enforcing any laws meant to prevent the disenfranchisement of minority voters, or that we're going to do our damnedest to dictate the way all women think and feel and act and dress and get medical care because they have no value except as objects for men... and that's just America's fuckery. Let's not talk about the rest of the world, about Brazil and Egypt and...

Bleh. The real problem is that it makes me want to avoid the internet and just zone out doing nothing but playing Harvest Moon all day. In Harvest Moon, all I have to worry about is not marrying any character who looks or acts 12.

...Pacific Rim was amazing, by the way! Everyone should see it.

That was supposed to be what this journal post was about before crippling bleakness settled in.

omg I am having too much fun playing in the [community profile] randomizing meme. I think I'll have to play Bruce after all. Mutter. Everyone should play with me here!

In other news, we're playing Remember Me on the PS3. I'm really, really enjoying it so far (we're on episode 6, I think). The cyberpunk is fun and well-developed and Nilin is an interesting character, and of course we should all approve of more lady protagonists and person of color protagonists, and I love how the story is both big-picture and personal. Some of it is messed up -- remixing memories is evil, in a fun way. I keep waiting for consequences of remixing memories, but we haven't seen any yet? Like, when does Olga come back to punch Nilin right in the throat?

Also, this game is seriously overflowing with female characters, almost all of them in positions of power. They introduce named characters with something approaching a 1:1 ratio of male to female named characters, which is... startling. I'm acutely aware of it because it recently became evident that I'm not normally aware of it.

Behind the cut is a tale of internalized sexism! )
