@MarkDStrauss@twitter.com @BRaime619@twitter.com What bothers me about this "debate" is that what they're arguing for is not a right to speak, but a right to be published. That's not a right that anyone has. No one has to listen to you. No one, including Twitter, has to broadcast your ideas.

I will vote for Democrats, then criticize Democrats when they suck, then vote for them again, in a little maneuver I call “BEING CAPABLE OF UNDERSTANDING MULTIPLE FUCKING TRUTHS AT THE SAME GODDAMN TIME.”

What can I say, I was inspired. Tried some (charcoal) brushes I'd not tried before and pushed the colour. Not sure that the likeness is quite there, but not bad for a couple of hours work and I'm not yet used to Ncuti's face.
