  • Fri, 10:41: The most useful perspective I've found on anger is that it's very likely telling you when a boundary has been crossed. Unfortunately anger can also be used in DARVO and as a trauma response to cover something else. But yeah, abuse is never justified, not even by anger. https://t.co/ThiIwgDL47

  • Tue, 17:26: I loved Lindsay Ellis' "Mask Off" video. TBH, it made me come back to Twitter (but also I also have something coming out soon and shouting about it on social media is part of the work). But it went to the heart of why visibility online can be so scary

  • Thu, 08:41: This morning's thoughts: I hated CS Lewis (there I said it) for many reasons, one of which is that I really couldn't understand why any kids would want to come back to our world if they could be in Narnia.
