facebook has been suspending accounts of people who aren’t using their legal names on their profiles, without warning, and demanding government issued ID before releasing the account back to them
so far the media i’ve seen cover this has focused exclusively on drag queens who have been targeted (source 1,2) but i highly doubt they are the only group affected. it’s possible that they’re the first people facebook is going after - but it’s also possible (dare i say likely) that they’re the only people who are able to speak up about it. after all, most people who aren’t using their legal names on fb are probably trans and/or trying to avoid abusers or stalkers. i know that’s the case for me and every single person i know who doesn’t use their legal name. a lot of people might be forcibly outed or otherwise put at risk because of this, myself included.
there is a petition you can sign. in the meantime i know i’ll be backing up any info/pictures i need off my account in case it gets suspended next, and i suggest everyone that this applies to does the same.
activities that help relieve stress of adhd/related symptoms: intuitive mark-making, color-making, & sound-making, laughing with and babbling at people, accidentally staring into space so hard for a second that your eyes literally cross
activities that do not help relieve stress of adhd/related symptoms: having to write about or verbally articulate anything that requires more than 10 seconds of coherent or critical thought, planning for and (not) meeting deadlines, having to adhere to the concept of time in general
all these table-placement maps for spx give me tons of anxiety and i promise you i will not remember where anyone is located but will instead wander around aimlessly for two days straight.
also, no i do not have a table at spx BUT there may be copies of happiness #4 available at both lale westvind and noel freibert’s tables, wherever those are, whoever they’re with. i will also be wandering around with a bag full of comics to trade or sell directly to people who ask. the only way i can afford to buy any comics this year is if i make some sweet hard cash at the event so please do throw all your money at me. and in case you are not aware of what i look like, please direct yourself to the following picture of me
