tagsfuck this shit, legal, live journal, tos

Rest in pieces, LiveJournal. I will cut off my own digits and stew them in Scotch peppers and throw them at Putin myself, before I sign an agreement that isn't even the legal document I'm signing, but a non-legally binding translation. I know people (including myself) are pretty careless about the TOS we agree to, but that's insane.

Can't even log in to delete. But I imported here, and here is where I've been giving money for years.

I understand that fandom is a little more awake to some of these issues than some other people that use LiveJournal, but how could anyone being ignorant and foolish enough to sign something blindly? Why don't you give your credit cards and bank account and SS# to the first person you see next?

A part of me is still sad, though. I met my best friend via LJ. I had the best fandom experiences while using it. On the other hand, it makes me even more appreciative of the hard work and money and time people have put into creating Dreamwidth and AO3.

Miscarriage Criminal in Utah

and Iowa, not wanting to outdone by Utah:

Pregnant? Don't Fall Down the Stairs

They're pushing this kind of shit through legislatures and into law while we sit in front of the TV watching Biggest Loser, worrying that we aren't thin or healthy enough. Because if you can't shame the fatties enough by making them feel ugly, tell them it's for their health. They're dragging the country down, man.

The biggest losers aren't on TV. They're the women living in Utah and Iowa. Someone needs to make some noise. Throw a big enough hissy fit that this hits the larger new media. This is... this isn't the country I want to live in. But as it is the country I live in, I am surer than ever that never having children was the right choice. I'll probably hit menopause before they take it away from me. Birth control will be next, of course, and after that, even voluntary abstinence. It is every woman's duty to bear the children of the patriarchy, whether she wants to or not.

I skimmed a blog entry today that wondered why science fiction in the last couple decades had become so much less positive about the future. Well, I think shit like this might be it. Hard to write about things getting better when you can't escape the stench of the rot already present.
