It’s my first full day in Orlando and I already bought this by lunchtime. I am furry trash and living my best life!

*sniff* The first LEGO Technic set my parents ever bought me. It was a huge set, and I built so many things out of it.

Dear Canadians,
The world is watching. Will we be a positive example and truly honour and title with dialogue and legislation that creates equality or will we continue with the gross injustice of oppression on behalf of exploitative corporations?

I mostly agree, but also bear in mind that the people and institutions of science do not escape political bias. Homosexuality was defined as a disorder for more than a century without anyone testing that assumption until after the decriminalization of the 1960s.

It's not "belief" in science. Science is verifiable, and it does not care what you believe. It is continually adjusted toward the truth as new information becomes available.

Trump IS a swamp. He’s been a swamp his entire life. This guy is notorious for turning a blind eye to money laundering in his casinos and real estate for decades. It’s the only way he knows how to make money. Nazi lesson: accuse your enemy of the crimes you’re already committing.

Regular Americans do not get special favors from the law. But if you are a donor or friend of @realDonaldTrump@twitter.com, or famous or wealthy, you can get pardoned. There is a word for this: corruption.

Trump didn’t just fail to drain the swamp, he became the swamp. twitter.com/samstein/status/12

I feel like I know what story they wanted to tell with Frozen 2: the sisters uncover their parents’ unfinished legacy and take on their mantle. I love that idea, but the script would need a rewrite to focus the narrative on that and make the character journeys meaningful.

Most Disney movies (including the original Frozen) are much tighter than Frozen 2.

Huh. Frozen 2 was not what I expected. The story was a jumble of elements that didn’t pay off, the characters had barely any journey, and every song brought the story to a halt. I’m confused why the movie reviewed so well, and how it got through the usual Disney/Pixar critique.

This question is trenchant. Bloomberg has been both Republican and Democrat over his career, and so has Trump. Arguably Trump won by running *against* the Republican Party. These elections are the base popularity contests that Plato warned democracies about.

If Mike Bloomberg won the presidency in 2016 as a Republican, would Democrats be OK with Trump running to beat him as a Democrat in 2020?

Great thread. This experience is exactly why I keep the concept of white fragility in mind when someone challenges me on my behaviour. It reminds me that my feelings aren’t the point. The point is there’s a problem that’s likely bigger than me and there is a way I can be better.

There's a thing which I wish I could explain more clearly. I am a cishet white female. Which means I am exposed to a specific sub-section of shitty behavior reserved for marginalized identities. I have been dealing with this for all my 57 years on this earth.

Today has not gone as I expected. A good chunk of my morning was a vulnerable and important discussion about white fragility.

Working people are often compassionate. The stereotype about intolerant bumpkins is deceptive. Prejudice and its justifications usually come from ruling elites turning us against one another for political ends.
