  2. The Scabless

    Just a quick update.
    My scab peeled off. Now I have an oddly shiny pink line there instead.
    A day or two ago the burn started to look kind of dry and peelable. I worried that if it snagged on something it would rip the scab off too. So yesterday I did a little picking and snapping of skin but only the parts not attached to the new skin anymore. I was worried about peeling it because it might cause the very thing I was trying to prevent but I found that the burnt skin was able to snap ...

  5. Othering, Cultural Appropriation, and "Racism"

    by , 04-14-2016 at 08:54 PM (Memories of the 28th Century)
    This morning someone told me that some government form he was filling out asked for ďraceĒ. I thought we had finished with that some time ago. There are no races of humans beyond the human race. There are vile people who seek throw division into human activity by falsely claiming that there are races of humans. Those people are racists.

    Race is a clear and well defined characteristic of some species of plants and animals, see links below. There are other sources that equate race ...
