How much money are you worth to facebook?

According to the information I found, it comes down to about 5$ a month. And if you multiply that by the number of users that they have, it adds up to quite a lot of money for a data-mining company passing itself off as a social networking site. I guess it’s no wonder then, that facebook is so ridiculously aggressive with its advertising.

PERFORATED CITY

This is an old “24-hour comic” I made on the isolation I’ve experienced as a trans person. Technically it’s a failed attempt, because I didn’t complete it within the required 24 hour period. But I ended deciding to finish it anyways because I thought it said something important on an issue that’s hardly talked about.

 

 

SAVE FILE PHOTOGRAPHY

There’s plenty of games out there that give us the option to take in-game photos   ( screenshots really ), but I never get around to bother. Yet somehow, when it’s related to the accompanying image that goes with a save file, I’m all into it. I go to great lenghts to find a proper subject, I take my time setting up the shot.

My habit might seem like an unusual idiosyncrasy. But I find that using distinctive images makes it easier to find my way around multiple save files, compared to searching with date and time alone. Also being a visual artist, I can’t resist the option to express my personality using visual means.

What I wonder is whether this an idiosyncrasy shared by other gamers, or whether I’m the only one with this obsession.

Netflix needs to add a “trans” section

netflix trans

First off, I’d like to congratulate Netflix on adding sex-reassignment surgery as one of the health benefits they offer to their employees. That is really awesome of them to do so.

But that leaves the question of what is it they’re offering in terms of search options, to their users that are trans? Finding movies and tv shows that relate to trans-identity on netflix, is a pain. There’s a section for gays and lesbians, and that’s great for them, but there’s nothing for us.  Trans related content shows up in various other categories, and it’s being left to us to go on an archeological search to dig up their hidden treasures. Are they ashamed of us?

To me it doesn’t make sense. On top of the few dozens of trans related movies and tv shows they already have listed, they also produce original content with amazingly well-written trans, and gender non-conforming characters ( Sense8, Knights of Sidonia, Orange is the new black ). Don’t they want to keep us as customers? And if so, wouldn’t it make sense that they add a category that makes it easy for us to find the content we’re looking for?

What do you  think? Feel free to vote on the poll below or to write your opinion in the comment section.
