In the entrails of Googles
Across a dedicated website, Google shows us “behind the scenes of the Internet.” In three areas: technology, teams, venues, this is a beautiful series of photos submitted to us.
Everything is downloadable ….. here is a wallpaper very cyberpunk.

Straight people apparently aren’t invited to the party.
Even Google fucking gets it.

Cass: Hah! Those things are going to be this decade’s Bluetooth headsets. A useful way to spot a complete wanker at twenty paces.
MJ: Don’t care. Still want. If only so I can look at things and say PICTURE like Spider Jerusalem.
Cass: Spider Jerusalem wouldn’t be seen dead in one of those.
MJ: Spider Jerusalem would wear anything his maker spits out at him.
Cass: Because Spider Jerusalem’s maker is on e-Purple Haze, so its taste syncs up with his.
MJ: What if these things sync up with my taste?
Cass: Your taste isn’t iconoclastic enough. You won’t be unique and cool in one of these. You’ll look like the sort of douchebuzzard who calls himself a social media rockstar.
MJ: What is a douchebuzzard when it’s at home?
Cass: I’ll tell you when you buy your first pair of these.
The argument that if (marginalized group of people) would just (!) ASK (nicely, in just the right way using exactly the perfect tone and obeying all the unwritten secret rules) for (their human rights), they would be given immediately them by the innocent benevolent rulers who just didn’t know what they needed is so common that it should be in Derailing for Dummies
Here’s what happened when one lawyer with low vision and superhuman patience decided to test that theory.
READ THE SHIT OUT OF THIS.
This little mini-experiment is fabulous and details exactly how little awareness there is of accessibility in day-to-day life. This is the social model of disability, y’all. And I can’t stop thinking about how massively fucked up it is that society demands for people with disabilities to either 1) just be so good at not having access to things or 2) use time and energy and resources they don’t have demanding things that should be basic. This is indecent.
EVERYONE READ THIS, PLEASE.
