Starting a new week and a new post with daily drawings. Here's an in-progress look at today's drawing.

Wrapping another week of daily hand drawn generative art, with a fun ink combination...well, it's a fun combination for me. Here's a photo of it in-progress.

Ok, so, realizing that I exist in some form of Autism, is one thing. How do I communicate to my friends and family who haven't noticed or didn't want to say anything...how do I help them?

Another experiment, for today's drawing. Delighted that all three inks do ok on this awful paper.

Here's an in-progress shot. Finished version, for my fans at ko-fi.com/Post/InkyDays-050922 and patreon.com/posts/66218098

A bit later on posting today's drawing than I usually am. But here's today's drawing in-progress.

A few years ago, I was working on a big data set and took 'slices' while testing and exploring. My kid saw this one and said it looked like 'Unicorn Barf'. Ha!

And it needs to be led by women, but men also need to participate.

Good men see bad men behave badly all the time. Some, but not all of that bad behavior is directed at women. Much of it is very terrible.

But men need to feel free so SMASH that RED button, no matter the gender of the target.

We all need to!

To be honest, I was first thinking about this from a social media perspective.

But wow! Women really need this RED BUTTON all the time everywhere, online and in real life.

Fuck! Really, dudes have no idea how easy their lives are.

@momentum but technical solutions are almost always dictated by men who ignore their non-male team members, if they even have them.

@momentum I wish there was a simple fix, as you suggest to charge men to participate...but really, there is no simple fix.

It's a human problem, and requires a human solution

@momentum
Women, the usual target of the small man, shouldn't have to bear the brunt of the attacks alone. Men need to step in, and educate. Hopefully, to help them grow and become better people.

@momentum This is an appealing idea. But it assumes that all men are privileged and all women are less so.

I am more fond of the idea of those who can afford it, to support platforms others can use for free. As on this instance.

Rather than taxing men, I would prefer that all have equal rights and pay 'taxes' as they can afford. Regardless of gender.

And dudes need to tell other dudes when they are out of line.

Why isn't there an automatic RED BUTTON that women can just SMASH when they are being attacked? Like let someone else deal with it!
Asshole just said I don't "write my own code" or my mother's death is irrelevant to the art I created when coming home from sitting at her deathbed

@Anke It's a new account in another instance, should I keep record of it?

Their comments to me seem to be a bit mysogenistic...saying I have "delicate sensibilities" when commenting on a piece I created in my evenings while sitting deathbed vigil for my mother. And yes, this is what he said after I mentioned this.

@valrus Yeah, I kept trying to give him a chance to be less awful, and he just doubled up every time.

Hey Mastodon admins! How do I block an account on another instance from harassing accounts on my own instance?
