BE RESPECTFUL YE SPAGS, ITS A LEGITIMATE EXPRESSION OF IDENTITY AND SEXUALITY


 :dream:

somewhere in the teeming masses of identities being generated at the fringes of the web,
there are probably some identities which will eventually be considered normal and real


At one point, being transgender was laughable fringe identity too. If you were biologically male but FELT female, this was a joke to everybody. Now thankfully it's gradually becoming normalized.

I do think a lot of these constructs just represent the questing phase that kids go through. They're a particular artifact of the stone soup way we construct identity in a media saturated environment. I mean, there are people who identify with Sephiroth. That's clearly not something you can you can carry into adulthood and old age.


I am secretly hoping that there's egg on my face in 50 years. Cybersexual and Doublesexual and such will be officially recognized

and all us 70 year old men will be like "I REMEMBER WHEN THERE WERE ONLY TWO GENDERS AND NOBODY WAS INHABITED BY SPIRITS FROM VIDEO GAMES"

... and the young generation will be praying for our death so they can finally marry a sailor moon pillow.

think my house needs to be wrapped in tin foil.  Like, it's a big
satellite dish. I wish it would stop collecting all these noises and
conversations from umpteen miles away. I hear sounds that I think are
coming from far away and are somehow amplified by how my house is
located.  I think the terrain does something to the sound waves. I
know that sounds totally PsYcHiAtRiC, but there's no way for me to
tell if this is happening or not.  Often I hear the sounds like of a
ship's steam room.  But it sounds far away.  So, I wander around the
house, wondering what the hell is running in the house that is making
a motor sound (this is really true). But I have never heard anyone
talking to *me* that was a hallucination; real auditory, although
I've heard the TV going or radio going in the house when they
weren't.

related: there's a good Vice Magazine podcast interview with Michael German, an an FBI agent specializing in counterterrorism. German talks about what's wrong with the FBI

http://www.vice.com/read/the-vice-podcast-inside-the-fbi


the tl;dr version - German says that being asked to assess and address threats is too big of a scope - it encourages them to magnify every threat. You can't expect somebody to report honestly on how important their work is. So he thinks the intelligence community should have a risk assessment wing and a totally separate wing tasked with addressing those threats.

He also has some insight about how the FBI has been mismanaged - partly because being a field agent is attractive to people who like police work and "getting the bad guys", whereas the management career track attracts climbers, people who like 'being the boss'.

He also mentions how a lot of the bizarre enforcement issues we've seen recently originates from a very old discussion about what the difference is between a domestic terrorist and a national security threat. A national security threat is something that originates from a group overseas... so a domestic group can categorically never be a security threat. That's ultimately why things like taking videos or photographs are "suspicious activity", especially if you're a Muslim, whereas organizing anti-government protests are not "suspicious".

There are real things which harm communities, but they are not considered a "threat" because they are domestic in nature. So what does national security actually mean? He points out how the FBI identified "environmental rights activists" as a higher threat than white supremacists, even though white supremacists kill way more people. 


all in all, a good listen; I found it very insightful
