1) I've booked tickets down to London~ I'm gonna be there from Friday 14th - Sunday 16th, so it's not a long trip, but I just wanted to get away from home for a while, lol. [livejournal.com profile] chairman_wow and [livejournal.com profile] pola_bear have both said they'd like to meet up and do something, so if any other Post Slash Panel Feminist Ranters would like to meet up on Saturday, that'd be ace~ I was thinking of maybe finding a museum, but [livejournal.com profile] pola_bear suggested a picnic (if it's not raining?). Anyone have any ideas, or know of any neat exhibitions that are on? I'd kind of prefer to do something late morning/lunch-y, so I can spend the late afternoon/evening with my brother :)

2) I have switched Tumblrs! So if you wanted to follow me on there, it's silver-pistols.tumblr.com. I only really changed it so I could use a coherent tagging system, as unfortunately Tumblr hasn't given me a way to organise/change my tags =/ Sucky.

3) I've been watching The Fades! Mostly because [livejournal.com profile] pandaemonaeum said it was good. I'd been curious, but since I'd missed it on tv, I'd figured I'd just skip it. Still, I watched it on iPlayer, and I've been enjoying it. It's creepy, and once again the leads are dudes (and white, and straight! so surprising), and also two fairly major female characters die violently, but other than that it's pretty cool. It's a neat take on zombies, at least.

4) Oh, and because I find this hilaaaarious: we have to part-exchange our car a year earlier than we thought we would. We've actually driven it out of its warranty. It's racked up 66000 miles in just over two years... Warranty ends at 60000, lol. When my Mum told the guy at the garage this, he apparently hung up in shock. So uh, we drive a lot? Oops? Anyway, it basically means we're exchanging it for a new car today, rather than in a year. Yay new car! \o/ Boo higher monthly repayments.

Ummm yep, that's it. How's everyone else been?

I would guess most of you already know this, but I keep a pretty low profile on the 'net. I'm active, but I'm not very out-going. So when I post feminist stuff, or angry stuff or possibly-controversial stuff, I'm pretty much never going to get a huge reaction, especially since I surround myself with people who believe the same/similar things to me, y'know? We might disagree with some things and on specifics, but in general, we're all working from the same page.

So I am really not used to hate and trolling against me.

And yet, a couple of days ago, that's pretty much what happened.

It's all under here, so you can ignore it if you want to! )

So that's what happened when I was awake, and I went to bed conflicted - I'm not normally fussed about people being mean to me, especially when they're insulting things that I believe in because y'know, I'm not gonna change my beliefs because someone swore at me. However the amount of attention and messages... I'm really not used to it.

I'll be honest, it was a bit upsetting. I can't really comprehend why people would disagree with me about this? I still don't think I'm wrong, but yeah...

Still! I've just checked the notes again (warily), and there're a lot more people agreeing with my sentiments and the people who reblogged me and added to what I said. So that's actually a relief, but yeah.

My very first encounter with trolls specifically going against me, and I survived! No flouncing or anything.

Also, sorry for making everyone click the links to see my responses, I just didn't want to paste yet more text into this entry.
