Otterday! And Open Thread.

Today’s otters are a blast from the past – a repost of our very first otterday post featuring fuzzy Asian Small-Clawed otter pups from the Blackpool Zoo.

Please feel free to use this thread to natter about anything your heart desires.

Hands up anybody now who’d trust Rolling Stone to tell their story?

“We’ve constructed seemingly infinite incentives for victims to keep silent (you drank too much, you wore too little, you’ll destroy the family, you’ll ruin the fun, your entire sexual history will be dredged and questioned and vivisected … in front of your grandma) and pretty much no compelling reasons to report, nor functional support systems in the aftermath.”

Vale Stella Young

Australian writer, comedian and disability activist Stella Young died suddenly on Saturday, December 6. I loved Stella’s writing, and I’m really sad. Goodbye Stella.

Welcome back! Extra special open thread!
