    I've been moving house, but I found time to share a bright spot with a friend.

    I’ve just moved house. Dancing white spots on the ceiling!

    because not all men are rapists

    Women have to assume every man is a potential rapist, unless we have reason to believe otherwise.

    A friend of mine tonight gave me the name of her date, in case something happened to her. That’s a hell of a fear to have to carry.

  • Up Front: Dear Dudebros,

    A friend who is a former sex-worker has given me permission to quote her on the issue of assault.

    “I was a sex worker who had full sex with my clients & I still got to set my boundaries. 99% of my clients were cool with that.
    99% of my clients were really respectful about touching me even though they had permission to. Because 99% of my clients weren’t abusive dickheads.
    It’s upsetting to hear ppl say I should’ve expected to be assaulted because of my work. Awful to me & to my clients who were largely good people.”

    I mean it that it is part of the public service with all that entails. Shouldn't be working against the rights of citizens. This is a general comment about the legal system. It is not something above us all.

    Yes. And thank you for this, Hilary.

    Men who treat women as people: you're not part of the problem.
    Could we talk about this problem of the vast number of men who don't treat women as people? And what can be done about it?

    What can you, as a decent man, do to change the attitudes of other men?

  • Hard News: On the Clark candidacy, in reply to Dennis Frank,

    The woman is merely a mainstreamer. Good enough to be a semi-plausible prime minister on some issues while out of her depth on others. I suspect those participating in the UN votes have sussed her out.

    Jesus Christ, I don't think even her bitterest political enemies in NZ find her mediocre! She's headed the UNDP since 2009. That's a very big freaking deal.

    archival pigment-based inks for inkjet printers

    ooh, link please

    It’s costly and I’ve only seen it advertised in commercial settings, such as my old friends at Microfilm Digital Print in Chch. Archival prints also require acid-free printing paper.

    Home-grade inkjet prints will fade after a few months on the wall. Interestingly, cheap colour-laser prints (or laser photocopies) retain their colour much longer because the toner is made of particles rather than a thin film of transparent ink.
