I’m Ryan! I’m a queer polyam leftist and I’ve been spending my time working as a therapist towards my real ass license. Which has been a lot of time and energy.
I’m getting married to @Ace in October?? Like, gay married??? He’s a very good and thoughtful and supportive boy to have in my life.
When I have time I play a lot of piano and sing, it’s my biggest passion.
I’m also on the podcast Barking Points Memo with Ace, Axel and Junius.

Hot take: "Debate" as a form of conflict has filled the cultural niche that Dueling once did. It's the same form of fake ritualised combat, and insecure white men like doing it because it makes them feel they're more capable at something than they actually are. Just as no one who was good at dueling would have actually been any good at fighting in a war, no one who's good at debate is actually any good at changing people's minds.
also gonna start prolifically yellin about #ANE2019

The degree that some bosses can stunlock and combo against you is just designed to make you throw your controller at the tv, I am having negative fun with this fight
What's more, people get *significantly* less productive and less good at their jobs as they work more. Why should we demand specialized workers like Doctors or Architects work 50, 60, or even 70-80 hours a week simply because its "always been done that way" and "they're paid well enough anyway" when the consequences of a mistake caused by overwork can be pretty significant, like with a surgical error or structural flaw in a building?
A reminder on this Monday: there is no reason for anyone to work more than 40 hours a week without overtime pay. By working more than 40 hours a week (or being forced to work this long via either management or just as a precondition to be able to afford a normal life) you are not necessarily pulling a John Henry-style valiant struggle. If you work a salaried job and are asked to work more than 40 hours a week without overtime, with every hour you're being paid comparatively less.
Just a reminder if you're interested in getting one of those pixely icons I've been doing I encourage you to send me an email application!
