Autism Speaks, eugenics, birdsite
What the actual fuck. In case anyone needed any more confirmation that Autism Speaks is a straight up hate group...
Anyway I wrote about Disney+ for Unwinnable and it got posted to the site today. :)
Hooboy. Got into a discussion (an actual discussion not the internet version of a discussion) with the UPS guy about faith and religion and whatever version of Christianity he's into is extremely old school and rigid - to put it mildly.
Like "Saints that people pray to for good health and whatnot are actually demons in disguise" type stuff.
The first time I bought a truck, I had been fossil hunting all day, I was absolutely covered in mud and I smelled like a foot, my hair was matted and tucked under a shitty baseball hat.
But I just thought I’d stick my head in the showroom to see why they had.
A salesperson came up to me and somewhat tentatively asked “can I help you?” and I was like “oh, yeah, I need a truck!”
And they looked me up and down and quietly said “w-what happened to your old one?”
These pediatrician folks are really trying my patience. One of them was spread out across the hallway on the second floor (blocking foot traffic with a stroller, herself, and 2 kids), two groups were hanging out in the lobby for like 20 minutes, and one of those groups was managing to block both the stairwell exit *and* the door connecting to the residential side of the building while *also* wandering into the obviously separate residential area for no goddamn reason other than stupid.
So far today I've had to walk about a mile in the cold and rain, was attacked (in as much as something the size of a gallon of milk can, anyway) by a dog, crowded into a room with sick children, engaged by idiots who think putting girls in the Ghostbusters reboot is the worst affront to humanity ever, and splashed by a dumb kid who tossed their crumpled water cup into the garbage (and missed).
I'm still trying to stay upbeat but damn.
