very card10-specific programming humor(?)
TFW you start reading #card10 related code by opening the sparkle/BeautifulFragment.kt file of the companion app, and of course the "fun" in "override fun" must be the literal fun that will get more sparkle and beautiful when this code will be run.
I guess Kotlin is just a very *fun* language in general 😅
"The ideals of the epic world obviously do not have much to share with women, nor do the women enjoy the heroic values. There is little they can do there - other then get abducted or rescued, or pawned, or molested, or humiliated in some way or other. So, what happens when women choose to retell an epic?"

there's a manufacturer's shortage of my hrt rn which is 🙃!!! I usually have tostran gel and was advised to ask my GP to prescribe something else, but my GP seems to know approx jack shit about trans stuff so I was wondering if anyone had:

due to some shit I'm not in contact with a GIC, so uhhhh
thanks in advance!

Systemic Violences, Stereotypes, Derailement
When I as a Jew points out antisemitism, or a black person points out racism, or anyone as a victim of systemic violence makes a critique of that violence, they are NOT speaking in stereotypes, even if we use language like "White people always" or "All men need to" or "Gentiles are." This generalization is not a stereotype because it is serving another linguistic function: it is pointing out the systemic nature of the violence in question.
