i came here to ask a very serious question and by the time the website opened i had completely forgotten what it was that i wanted to ask.

i come here and i rant about transcriptions and i fuck off for another week.

once again i am begging transcribers and captioners to write what is being said. if the word "fuck", do not place [_____]. no one has ever said [_____] out loud. what the fuck folks.

sometimes people do well meaning things but that are completely useless in practice. like putting trigger warnings without specifying what the trigger is. appreciated. not very helpful though.

you could literally pick up a random man off the streets of hollywood and give him a camera - whatever they'd make would be far more interesting than anyone involved with marvel studios

Show thread

ABA // child abuse // ECT 

arguing with ABA therapists is so weird because i said "so hitting your kids is wrong but shocking them isn't" and that person responded with "well yeah, physical punishments don't tend to be consistent or have an immediate onset." like... are you implying if these things where removed you would be okay with hitting children????? huh???

ableism / electroshock therapy 

back to once again complain. today's source of complaint: if your centre's founder has once shocked a child 4'000 times, you will never convince me that your centre helps autistic children. fuck off.

can someone please tell me to work on making a proper CV

apple music has a gay song listed as explicit ... even tho it’s an instrumental.

reasons why you shouldn’t refuse me transcribing your podcast:
- i am literally doing it for free
- you make your work more accessible
- i try to be as fast as i can
- if you say something like “i want people to pay for it” i will make fun of you and tell all my friends you’re inaccessible

reasons why you should refuse me transcribing your podcast
- you want an actual professional
- you already have transcriptions up and i haven’t seen them.

as a transcriber who offers up my services for almost any podcast, it is pretty annoying that i’ve already been rejected twice because people want to make transcriptions behind paywalls. if people don’t pay for the podcast episode, then they shouldn’t be paying for the transcription.

grrrr ableism.

person organising yesterday’s event said sorry i personally can’t talk about the situation going on in the ‘p’ word country because we risk losing our NGO status if i do. ?

transphobia but funny? 

someone mistook me for a trans man today and told me "you'll always be a woman" :QueerCatHeart_Trans:

I'm behind on all my transcriptions so why am I applying to more podcasts? fml, this is going to bite me on the ass on the 23rd.

You can help save an unbelievable trough of scientific knowledge from disappearing behind the elites' paywalls!



Spread the word and seed till you bleed – for the betterment of humanity!
