Oh hey I haven’t yelled about voting in a while
Reposting this because some of y’all need a reminding.
VOTE YOUR WHOLE BALLOT.
A Democratic President does nothing if Congress is controlled by Republicans. Your local elections are important, too. (It took us 20 years, but you notice we don’t have issues with our sheriff out here in Phoenix now we’ve voted out Joe Arpaio.)
Don’t skip any. Look up names on your phone while you’re in the ballot booth if you have to. VOTE YOUR WHOLE BALLOT.
Might? He is! But it’s cool that you deduced that from the trailer alone.
I think I just realized something about the trailer for Scoob!
And if that isn’t enough…
Dick Dastardly might be the villain!
Remember when DC made an animated mini series based of Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld? Were Amethyst was a teenage game designer/programmer and was sucked into her own game? And basically became Zelda? Remember when DC aired cartoons on Cartoon Network? Yeah, good times. Sucks that this never got turned into a series. Or even a video game. But the director of this, @briannedrouhard did go on to create the Harpy Gee webcomic and eventual pilot. So that’s cool.

“By studying the 85 gender-nonconforming children [psychologist Kristina Olson] recruited, her team has now shown, in two separate ways, that those who go on to transition do so because they already have a strong sense of their identity.
This is a topic for which long-term data are scarce. And as transgender identities have gained more social acceptance, more parents are faced with questions about whether and how to support their young gender-nonconforming children.
“There’s a lot of public writing focused on the idea that we have no idea which of these gender-nonconforming kids will or will not eventually identify as trans,” says Olson. And if only small proportions do, as some studies have suggested, the argument goes that “they shouldn’t be transitioning.” She disputes that idea. “Our study suggests that it’s not random,” she says. “We can’t say this kid will be trans and this one won’t be, but it’s not that we have no idea!”
“This study provides further credence to guidance that practitioners and other professionals should affirm—rather than question—a child’s assertion of their gender, particularly for those who more strongly identify with their gender,” says Russell Toomey from the University of Arizona, who studies LGBTQ youth and is himself transgender.”
