"Vancouver School Board Introduces Gender-Neutral Pronouns"

"Students and teachers in Vancouver can now use the gender-neutral pronouns "xe," "xem," and "xyr." The move is designed to accommodate students for whom "he" and "she" does not fit or is deemed inappropriate…
"The newly coined pronouns — xe, xem, and xyr — are pronounced to rhyme with the genderless plurals "they," "them," and "their," and all starting with the "z" sound. So phonetically speaking, they’re pronounced "zey, "zem", and "zare.""

I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it…

I wasn’t paying attention and typed in “Mamma Mis”. What a weird crossover that would be. How would that even work?

why the hell is it called welcome to night vale when literally nobody is welcomed to night vale????

daftlypunk:

i hit my coworkers shoulder lightly and he was like “you’re going to make me cry like a girl” and i was like “what’s wrong with being a girl?” and he was quiet for a moment then he looked into the distance and whispered “the social standards they’re forced to live by”

Because I think we all miss Carlos and want him home already. Especially Cecil.
(also there might be a faceless old woman watching them. maybe.)

It’s always interesting to me that people use the word “art” to mean “good”, when “art” just means “art”, and most art is bad. Since “art” is not a judgement of quality, I don’t see harm in making the term as broad as possible. Which is why my definition is: Anything that anyone thinks is art. So remember: next time you see something calling itself art that you think is stupid, don’t think “Not art.” Think “Terrible, useless art”

@bairfanx: the people who use “art” to mean “good” tend to be fans of a high/low art dichotomy & believe in the genre/literature divide

After listening to September monologues I imagine Cecil saying “weather” and music starting to play. Every single time.
