Bleh, that was an asspull of an essay.  Nothing like running out of research material halfway into your word count.

Well, it's been submitted.  I guess I'll find out how I did in a month.  Which is about when my next paper is due.

Now I can look forward to...a night of work.  Oh joy.

I'm pretty sure the companions in DA2 are actively designed to piss you off.  I can really only stand Varric, Carver and Isabella...and even Carver's a whiny prick for a whole Act. 

Which is probably why Varric's the only returning, recruitable character for DA:I.

And I have to do an abstract still.  That's another 250 words, easy.

The personalised pronoun thing is pretty much the final straw.  I don't know how the tumblrinas will top that.  People insisting their gender is bun or fae or royalty based seemed like the sort of thing that was originally thought up by an especially devious troll, but then was brainlessly adopted by legions of 14 year olds.

At least we can take some solace that, in 8-10 years, they're going to physically cringe when they think back to this point in their life.

My gender:  Carbuncle.

I sometimes wonder if this is the only road to making sex and gender a nonissue. Keep on doing what you're doing, kids, until everyone is so confused and sick of it all that they just can't stomach trying to label anyone at all.

If so, I applaud their successful strategy.  It's definitely working on me.

I am, but that's different.

I mean, anyone with a functioning brain can see spice is a gender.

:thanks:

The thing is, with more time and, y'know, an army of flying monkeys stooges undergrads, this could be really useful.  Not Correlates of War useful, probably not even START database useful, but more useful than, say, an op-ed by John Bolton in the Washington Post.  Which is as useful as anything needs to be in academia, as far as I can see.

Plus I purposefully limited the scope of my research because I didn't want to spend 2 whole weeks digging around in online journals and making my eyes bleed.  Now I reap the reward of that....doubly.  This is the sophisticated, master-level method of doing research.  A winner's way.  Cain's way.

Ah, got it.  Future research directions and improvements to this study.

Fuck, trying to stretch my essay out for another 800 or so words.  It feels more than a bit short.  Not sure what else I can do, though.  5000 words is the limit, which means ideally aiming for 4800 or so.  The 4 appendixes will make the essay look larger, but I still need a few hundred to hit that limit, and I'm fairly sure I just repeated everything I said twice.

Oh, I know this one!  It's a startup tech company.  Does smart tv stuff on social networks or something.

identifying a human is very stressful for otherkin actually.  Especially machinekin and faekin.  Probably deitykin too.  Imagine being a god in your head, but then having to identify as human.  Urgh.

I have a profile of a 13 year old demigirl machinekin here.  Don't make me post it, Paes.

I think they probably went crazy after seeing this:
