While we're sharing art, in 1620 Artemesia Gentileschi painted herself as the biblical Judith beheading Holofernes, except Gentileschi in her work is decapitating her own real-life rapist, Agostini Tassi. Gentileschi also painted two other versions of the scene, in which the two women move to dispose of her assaulter's decapitated head.

I guess I'll just point out puppets (in entertainment, in therapy, etc) are bits of felt onto which we project human qualities and characteristics and that it is v interesting to me which human qualities and characteristics ppl decide are allowable ones. I also think re: Bert/Ernie, "Puppets don't have an orientation" is an EXTREMELY HILARIOUS way to describe puppets when you consider their function for most of western theatrical history has been to be extremely horny.

Also you will then have to explain Miss Piggy.

an extremely good joke i just noticed: @BigBird is the only @sesamestreet Muppet who follows @MrSnuffleupagus, and @MrSnuffleupagus follows only him. oof @SesameErnie's bio identifies @bertsesame as his "friend", but @bertsesame's bio identifies @SesameErnie as his "roommate"

we all been there sis

now let's talk about what happens next: what happens next is that you will watch news organizations lean, very bizarrely, on the Spacey coming out. You will be confused by this.

hey Jonathan remember when you offered an "Appropriation Prize" to fête successfully racist white people I'm convinced reason Canada is not in the grips of fascism is not bc it has a lack of racists, but bc it has a lack of sufficient charisma.
