This time I run through points of interest about social issues big and small. The first half covers abortion, sex work, the safety of gay bars, how romance usually starts with friendship, and aro-aces as queer. In the 2nd half I cover pieces about elite use of toxic positivism in the neoliberal order; the basis of that with meritocracy; and how social values change quickly when the masses (that’s us) move, with a finish relating that to abolishing museums(as we know them of course).
