Trying to be a decent caring person is a daily challenge. It's not something you arrive at and move on to other things, in my experience.

It's a process not an achievement. You can make achievements along the way but if you ever think you're done you are almost certainly off track.

Best thing I read today. 
Note: To save space, instead of typing 'antifeminist,' I'm just going to use 'asshole.'

There are very few things I wouldn't choose over being in proximity to a bigot.

I just heard a track that is me playing drums and also has Tom Morello playing guitar on it. Holy crap. This is really happening.
I'm am beyond psyched to be part of Ryan Harvey's amazing new album.

None of us would be here without a whole lot of love and support - when you can, pay it forward. Even small kindnesses matter.

Despite the Gamergate backlash, a new generation of activists is working to end the racial, sexual and gender stereotypes promoted by the video-game industry.

"FRIDAY, the 13th; I thought as much. If Bob has started, there will be hell but I will see what I can do."
The sound of my voice, as I dropped the receiver seemed to part the mists of five years and usher me into the world of Then as though i had never passed on.
I had been sitting in my office,letting the tape slide through my fingers while its every yard spelled "panic" in a constantly rising voice, when they told me that Brownley on the floor of the Exchange wanted me at the 'phone, and "quick." Brownley was our junior partner and floor man. He talked with a rush. Stock Exchange floor men in panics never let their speech hobble.
"Mr. Randolph, it's sizzling over here, and it's getting hotter every second. It's Bob-that is evident to all. If he keeps up this pace for twenty minutes longer, the sulphur will overflow 'the Street' and get into the banks and into the country, an no man can tell how much territory will be burned over by to-morrow. The boys have begged me to ask you to throw yourself into the breach and stay him. They agreed you are to only hope now."

- Friday the 13th by Thomas W. Lawson, 1907

Indifference stings more than scorn. Trust me.
If you've been "called out" you should take some solace that someone actually cared enough to interact with you, whether or not it was in a manner that pleased you.
