Introducing XKit for iPhone
Well it took a few months, but it’s here: XKit for iOS is now available on the App Store. It comes with Blacklist, PostBlock, Mute, One-Click Reply, Disable GIFs, No Recommended Posts and much more.
I also wrote a transparency letter about it, if you are interested. (highly recommended as it discusses some missing features and the future of the app.)

Yeeees!! God bless the Xkit Guy :D

So this happened

oh how the roles and opinions have changed when it comes to a young boy

DAILY MAIL READERS, LADIES AND GENTS

FYI, when it first happened with the girls, everyone was calling their parents unfit to raise children, and the girls were being called narcissistic and fame hungry cause they had their picture taken for news, while with the boy, everyone was so quick to jump to his and his family’s defense, calling it a smart haircut, and his hairstyle none of anyone’s business.

I just wonder. When did hair become more important than education?

It always has been.  This is what dress codes are about — not just creating a safe learning environment, but policing gender expression and gender roles.

I actually think this was one of my favorite and most powerful scenes in the show. Kate Mulgrew do expertly portrayed the hurt we’ve all felt at one point or another when we were ostracized by people we wanted so desperately to be accepted by and the fact that this feeling knows no boundaries of age.

Y’know what, she’s very much a part of my life and uh, it was one of those things, those things that just happened when you work with somebody and you think 'I love, I love you uh, will always love you, we'll always be a part of each others lives.'

Marathoning Alias reminds me of how much I love Jennifer Garner and Victor Garber’s love.

On February 25, 2014, Orange is the New Black author Piper Kerman testified at the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee hearings on solitary confinement in Washington, DC. Unlike her fictional character, Kerman was never placed in solitary confinement. But she testified about the many women incarcerated alongside her who had:

While I was in prison, I saw many women sent to the SHU for minor infractions such as moving around a housing unit during a count, refusing an order from a correctional officer, and possession of low-level contraband like small amounts of cash (which is largely useless in prison) or having women’s underwear from the outside rather than prison-issued underwear. All of these infractions drew at least 30 days in solitary. Sometimes women are sent to the SHU immediately upon their arrival in prison because there aren’t any open beds.

Most politicians would rather ignore the reality of the problems with the prison system than address them head-on and risk being seen as “soft on crime.”Orange is the New Black—and Kerman’s determined attempt to link the peoples’ interest in the fictional story to real women’s suffering—has helped get Americans talking about prison in a way few pieces of pop culture have. It’s also a way to get people talking about women in the prison system rather than focusing the conversations around men. It’s also a sad truth that politicians and Americans in general are more likely to listen to a celebrity telling them about prison conditions than someone who didn’t become famous after being incarcerated. To her credit, Kerman (unlike some other celebrities who have experienced short stints behind bars) has been using her platform to advocate for change.

Read the article: Can “Orange is the New Black” Change the Way Congress Thinks About Prisons? 

Team Kerman

It sucks that it takes an upper-middle class white lady experiencing something for people to believe it’s a real thing, but I’m glad OITNB has sparked discussion about the inhumane way we treat prisoners in the U.S.

"I’m a white male writer and I cannot relate to characters who are people of color so I don’t include them in my stories."

Hm, interesting. Considering as a Korean American woman, I’ve had to somehow understand and sympathize with white female and male characters in books, tv shows, and movies growing up. I had no problem or difficulty. I got annoyed, sure. 

Just be honest. It’s not that you can’t relate. 

You don’t want to. 

That’s it. You. Don’t. Want. To. 

No need to change your mind or opinion. Go ahead and be honest and say that you don’t want to write people of color.

A message from muchsweeterthanfiction
Which authors are you friends with? Like I know you thank Jackson Pearce in your acknowledgments in some books (I have read As You Wish by her and this book is so beautiful!) but do you know other authors personally?
A reply from maggie-stiefvater

I don’t know if you knew this, but published authors run in packs. If you are very quiet, and you stuff your left pocket with foxglove and your right with St. John’s Wort, you can see these authorial packs by the light of a full moon. The proper name for such a grouping is a travesty. So if you have been quiet, and also if you have no outstanding library fines, you will see the insidious dark forms of dozens of roving literature mongers streaming across the suburbs. You shall hear them whispering hoarsely back and forth. If you listen closely, you can hear what they are saying — away away the hero’s journey subtext and meaning a gif of tony stark holding a kitten away away —

You will know me by my antlers.

Do I know other authors personally? I know a travesty of authors, my dear reader. A travesty.
