I’d like to read you a few comments of yours that I’ve found online, Derek. I hope that’s okay. They come from all over: Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo News, the Daily Mail… and the Instagram account of Jemima Thompson, aged seventeen. Interesting. Wow, you had a lot to say to Jemima, didn’t you. Let’s take a … Continue reading Inktober 03/10/19: Bait
(NB: this is a piece of fiction from two perspectives. I'm not interested in getting into a discussion/argument about the relative awfulness of this parent. Good? Good.)

[Cantatrice looks at bottle of ink. Looks at article. Looks at floor. Looks back at ink. Puts ink down and wanders off … Continue reading Extremely female autism
I was a little reluctant to blog about this Guardian article because on some levels it makes me sad and I don’t want to bring any additional attention to it.
