foolish mistakes, but whatever, they are all mine.
Mostly-cis, fat ,middle aged, bisexual, disabled, white femme. My hobby is seeing how many years I can add to my collection before I die.
Posting will be random but may contain fat acceptance, wool, and cats, lagomorphs and corvids in no particular order. Posting may also be sporadic as I have ME/CFS and a bunch of other stuff that makes me tired and some times crabby.

Ugh, I forgotten just how racist the Crewel World series by Gennifer Abin . The basic idea for the world of the books is good, but oh dear gods, why didn’t a good editor rip out all the racist tosh that mars it?
The tropes used regarding People of Colour in this book are so cluelessly White it makes me feel queasy and I’m white.

In response to the question, “What books are you embarrassed not to have read yet?”
I am so glad for this answer. I tire of "but did you read [insert cishet White man with anti-intersectional perspectives and White Savior Industrial Complex]" bla bla or “did you read [insert cishet White woman with book deemed ‘revolutionary’ for ‘all women’]” yet it speaks nothing to my life at all.
Over it. Read what you want.
this is so great
this forever, i want to dismantle any preconceptions about a canon and let people read/watch/listen to (or even not) anything they want to. fuck snobbery.
I love this so very much and I am speaking as one who loves reading with a passion. Life is not score keeping, there is no prize for getting the most ticks on a list. Other than ‘be compassionate and decent to yourself and others’ there are no rules, which is both scary and wonderful.
My friend Andrew Hickey is a software engineer, musician and writer. After many years of writing for an online audience for free, he’s decided to try his hand at doing the same thing but for money, because even writers need to eat.
He writes funny and wise short stories, books about music, comics and Dr Who. You should totally go check his work out and if you like it, buy some!
