The downside of digital skins

Yuck. Skins kill the look and feel of whatever they are applied to.
Homogenizes. Prevents looking at the totality of the item, cutting out
everything the skin doesn't recognize because it hasn't been included
in the formula. Imagination and creativity of creator killed. If the
idea is to cut out the vile designs, the too-full pages, the attention
grabbing by the irrelevant, then I suggest we take the hint and
attention grab only the relevant and do it the hell beautifully. If
'Homogenize' was a billboard who would do it? I want a list, damn it,
some stats. Get onto it.

Poem: I have biracial hair by Zora Howard

See the performance on YouTube

I have bi-racial hair
Pantene Pro-V waves on the top
Easy to style, comb, rock-
Until-I encounter my naps,
I’m not talking about those-cute detangle with the spray naps.

Back 10 feet up, or we can dance naps
Those naps like-
DAMN!

In the front you forget and relax in the pleasure,

Baby hair slicked back with that good 4 dollar pomade,
That goes with roots and tangles,
Soaked with that same olive oil; mixed with that spaghetti sauce momade.
I have bi-racial hair,
Combs run freely through my fine breezy, just to the part, the most you can make,
Until it gets to the back and
Breaks.
I have bi-raci…

About Bullying

~

This sentence, my only interaction on this whatsapp group,  a language classes whatsapp group, about a picture of hearts with twee words about love lasting forever... nothing to do with language.... "Can I ask that we don't post bits and pieces of not-language-learning things. It eats up my bandwidth." This is a clear statement of a boundary suggestion, with a reason. A suggestion phrased as a question. I was told I was a bully. I said to the person who called me a bully... NOT the twee pic poster, that she should investigate what bullying is, politely. And left the group.

I realize people don't have any real idea what bullying is. So I prepared this piece below.

Asserting your point of view is not bullying. Assertiveness does not mean you will get what you want. It simply helps each party express their desires with an INTENT toward accomplishing a specific goal.
