There has been so much DOING OF THINGS in the last few months and I’d really like to document it. In an attempt to make sure (a) I actually do that and (b) that it’s not too unwieldy, or rather totally unreadable, I’m gonna steal [personal profile] copperbadge’s Three Things format: three bullet points and an extra per item.

Shield under Phil Coulson’s direction feels like some creepy cult built to lure your ass in with vague implications of “doing good” and “looking after the world”, but in the end it’s just an organization run by a mighty whitey whedon red-shirt that demands absolute loyalty or threat of exploitation when you chose not to help them (basically, it’s just another facet of the US Government.)

I think that becomes much clearer when Daisy simply decides to trust them (because Coulson drugs the undercover Nazi guy with truth serum) and the narrative has her do it without further suspicion of their intentions in episode one, and makes it so that Mike Peterson’s mistrust of organization like SHIELD is wrong because they know better than him and he needs to be saved from himself, never-mind he had legit reasons not to trust them or Daisy (after that point), who put him in their crosshairs.

Then there’s the fact that whenever there’s an organization (like the one Jiaying set up) that isn’t affiliated with Shield (and doesn’t like them), the Whedon Klan does its best to find a way to demonize anyone who a): doesn’t want to work with shield, b): doesn’t trust shield’s intentions.

Can you believe big corporations and the politicians who back them have been trying to regulate the internet like television and radio, since, like, 2011 (IIRC)? And with laws that would benefit major corporations (ISP in particular) and put the poor or working class at a major disadvantage, and basically make it impossible to access information if said corps. don't like sites or charge for speed? There are still posts on this blog from my LiveJournal Days back when SOPA, PIPA, and ACTA, were a thing. Like, holy, shit, they just don't stop.

If you haven't already, head over to places like the following:

Dear FCC.org

Battleforthenet.com

So this week has sucked.


SO.

We are hosting a cuddle party over in our musebox community [community profile] realfantasia.

Since we're doing it musebox-style basically anything goes (you can be yourself(ves), or a character).

There are two parts:

Part 1: is kid-friendly and clothing-or-bathing-suit-on for humanoids

Part 2: is consentually clothing-optional for humanoids

Basically, a rotation curation is when there's an account set up for different people to take over. People 'curate' it for a week or so. I was on https://twitter.com/TWkLGBTQ, which as you can tell is all about the LGBTQ+ community.

It was interesting! The account follows almost 3,000 people, which is very different from my usual account's 700 or so. I ended up spending a lot of time just reading people's feeds, also seeing the same news stories (Andrew Garfield making a joke that backfired, the hot mess with Blac Chyna and Rob Kardashian, people killed in hatecrimes) again and again. That last one was really upsetting.

I also spoke to a larger selection of people than I normally would have - the account follows the LGBT Conservatives account and a few other, similar people. Obviously I don't agree with them, but it was still interesting/infuriating.

Overall, I had a very good experience and would rec it! Have followed a bunch of new to me people too.
