Re: Milogate.

Seeing how Milo actually prefers dating black men, I'm guessing not alot of swastika wearers do support him. Why not? Having a black friend is often used as a defense by people who are racist generally; conservative Christians generally against adultery voted for a known adulterer in this last elec...

Re: Milogate.

To be fair, the vast majority of Milo's opponents haven't resorted to local terrorism; it's misleading to confuse the work of a few anarchists with nonviolent protesters. Though if you want to pursue a slippery slope that allows you to compare anarchists to fascists (they're totally different), I'd ...

Re: How big is your television?

What I'd say: whatever you like. I think even the budget TVs are fine, unless you're looking for 60+ framerate on your games.
What Spacebot would say: a cortical implant with a control collar.

40"? As a kid that seemed enormous, and it was: the big store models were heavy. I had a small 15" for a very long time in college and afterward. I got this newer model as a holiday gift one year.

Re: How comfortable do you feel asking about someone's race?

^ "Heritage" feels like a particularly loaded word, but that may be because "heritage" in the American South is often code for white people celebrating nostalgia for a Jim Crow-era or slavery-era South. (See also Confederate battle flags.) Maybe in other contexts it's okay?

Re: hey, it's me and my idea

I was reading Felicia Day's autobiography, and she describes having an in-person pancake meet where she would talk with other women writers/actors, set goals, and share advice. It seemed to work for her. As rowan said, we don't have a group like that in place here, but I'll certainly read what you h...

Re: Donald Trump? :(

I've been thinking about how small acts of activism can be a part of a self-care regimen. Like, self-care to the point of doing nothing may result in the added angst of feeling like there's nothing to do. At the very least, I've found writing a post card to a representative when I'm feeling particul...

You are not the only biologist on here. For instance, I think Eravial has pointed to women writing accessible books about neuroscience.

Yeah, I usually don't ask about ethnicity or race unless it's relevant to something more immediate than my curiosity. Understood, you may not care. I usually don't care. That question can be asked out of academic curiosity, but it can also be asked with malicious intent. So asking the question will ...

Re: When do you go to sleep?

Most nights I try to go to bed around 10-11 and get up around 6-7. When I don't have to work, add two hours both ways.

I've been blessed by relatively stable sleep patterns, which is nice because I usually can't nap.
