Open Thread for Non-Personal Stuff, 5/16 Triumphant Hedgehog Edition

Whoo!
Whoo!

A long overdue Open Thread for Non-Personal Stuff. (There’s also one for personal stuff.)

As always, no trolls or MRAs. Let me know if any show up.

Because apparently the most important thing about being a Republican today is to be a coward.

No, it’s to be a fascist shithead.

Thanks for the heads up, Dalillama.

@Viscaria:
Hugs. The nice hugs, with non-anti-semitic brackets. You’re a great person and didn’t deserve that shit. Nobody does.

So…I came across this lovely Facebook page blatantly supporting rape (with graphic memes to boot!) and reported it and the worst of the memes on it.

https://www.facebook.com/Brockturnerfor2026lympics/

It’s a “support” page for that ex-Stanford rapist trash that was recently given a slap on the wrist. You’ll never guess what Facebook decided! Apparently posting a picture of (TW) a guy with his pants down on top of a passed-out girl that says (paraphrased, I’m currently shaking with rage and don’t care to tab back to the Facebook page to get the exact quote) “It’s all fun and games until some do-gooder steps in” doesn’t violate Facebook’s policies. Literally condoning rape doesn’t violate Facebook’s policies.

If anyone would like to send some thoughts, prayers, good vibes, etc. my way, it would be really appreciated. My mom just went into surgery to replace a valve in her heart. They are doing it all through a catheter, so they don’t have to do actual open heart surgery, but it’s still surgery and she’ll be in the hospital for at least a few days.

I am also currently stuck in a building on campus because my internet went out at home. The building closes at 9 and I’m hoping the internet will be back up by then. It’s the only way I have to communicate with my family back in America, so I really need to have an internet connection tonight.

Thanks Alan and pitshade. There’s not much I can do but wait right now. It’s frustrating to be so far away, even though I wouldn’t be able to do anything if I were there.

I also just realized that I accidentally hijacked the open thread for non-personal stuff. I must have clicked on the wrong one. Sorry about that.

<3 ej! I hope it goes well! It's okay about the thread-jack, we will manage! 😉

Update:

My mom is out of surgery and it went well. She’ll be in the hospital for a few days, just to make sure everything is OK.
