Retweeted by Monica ByrneIt is a very strange pleasure to forget everyone I love. And then, to remember them again. #travel@MsNazContractor NICE! :)@natalierobinLD OH yes. I have goooooood books!@PKhakpour "They saw it and I didn't" - exactly what a relationship of mine was like, too. So so grateful to you for speaking about this.
Retweeted by Monica ByrneWe can never understand what goes on between two people--BULLSHIT. People watched my abusive ex act it for years! They saw it & I didn't.
Retweeted by Monica Byrne@PKhakpour Thank you. I get that Erykah Badu song in my head, "I guess I'll see you next lifetime..."@natalierobinLD Ten, amiga. There'd better be good movies.@photomattmills BINGO@PKhakpour Yeah. & I feel bad because I feel like I'm abandoning her. But it's like she's under some kind of spell. Nothing I can do.Guess how long the flight is from D.C. to Istanbul.@PKhakpour Lost someone very close to me, to that. Still hoping she breaks out someday.Don't live in a weird freaky island with your significant other, concocting conspiracies about the outside world! Don't be in a cult of 2!!
Retweeted by Monica ByrneNEW GUARD: talk about it all, loudly, in public, on all records, everywhere. Yell FIRE. It has actually saved lives.
Retweeted by Monica ByrneI've said it many times, before this incident even: ignoring, silence, tuning out was OLD GUARD. that didn't work & things got worse.

Retweeted by Monica ByrneKid biked up to me & said in low voice, "You need any greens?" & I was like, "GREENS? NO, WHAT ARE THOSE?" Once a square, always a square.@belle_abroad Right behind you in Rites! :) @jeffvandermeer@belle_abroad Ooooh, yessssss. What page are you on?@mjrobbins I am! Birthday was July 13th :) If it makes you feel any better, I thought you were older than me too, haha.Oh, this land I love, love, love, love. #Belize http://t.co/3cx3EKt96rBurst into tears walking my dog. Two men from my building stopped me & we talked. ("Some guy did WHAT now?") Got hugs & "Harlem's got you."
Retweeted by Monica Byrne@mjrobbins Welcome to the Jesus Year Club! It's great!Oops, Lena took away your firewood! Quick, find something else to hate her for.Today in Orgiastic Hating on Successful Women@scalzi Well, I don't do chest-to-floor yet, and I still have my knees up. So that puts it in perspective. By the end of this trip, though..@scalzi What? Did it? Nah it seemed gently self-deprecating!I love getting stronger.I'm getting stronger. Did my 50 push-ups in four sets instead of eight. That's only after a few days' practice.Some good points were raised and I've ensured that all opening acts will be compensated for their time, their labor and their talents.
Retweeted by Monica ByrneThis feature of the tour was meant to be a way to showcase local talent and I could not be more excited about it.
Retweeted by Monica Byrne@amandapalmer Yep.@jabrilfaraj @inflammatorywrt OK. Thanks. Peace.Ed Champion is more than an angry blogger: What to do about the men who abuse women? http://t.co/3DlNdAmM6L via @Salon
Retweeted by Monica Byrne@jabrilfaraj @inflammatorywrt Whole lotta "shoulds" & "shouldn'ts" in the world. Another form of privilege = expecting that ours be fixed.@jabrilfaraj @inflammatorywrt Tired of making same point over&over, so I'll just say one more time: cool, that's your choice. Mine are mine.Hahaha, remember when Phyllis Schlafly came to speak at @Wellesley? That was hilarious.@scalzi What dipshits. This is why I don't.@inflammatorywrt OK.@rajkashana Nope. Plan B's are poisonous to dreams.@inflammatorywrt But how do you think it makes people feel who choose to perform/write, regardless of that?@rajkashana It means, with no guarantee of publication or compensation.@inflammatorywrt ...They are making an active choice based on what they believe is best for them.@inflammatorywrt Definitely. I'm just saying, pay attention to the (non)payees' agency in the situation....@ouijum Sure. Definitely that.Took a chance on the novel, too: wrote five years on spec. It paid off big.I'm not yet well-known enough to be commissioned. But I know I will be someday. This is the road there.Another example: today I'm working on spec on another long-form essay about caving. No promise of placement. Still my choice to write it.For example: wrote 8 pieces for TGitR's debut. Four got placed. Four didn't. Was paid for none. It was book publicity, that's how it works.@ouijum OK. That's your choice. I've made other choices.@inflammatorywrt Yes. I disagree. Also: can you point to men who've been criticized on this front to the extent AFP & Lena Dunham have?Of course the goal is to get paid for every gig someday. Or to have the freedom to choose all-paying gigs. But road isn't perfectly smooth.I write for free a lot. Still. That's my choice.And here we go again with the whining about not paying performers blah blah blah. As if the performers had no choice in the matter.RT @thegaytraveler: If lucky enough to be in @DurhamNC when @ManbitesTheater has a show, go. That's all. #gaytravel http://t.co/OrppOxCWB1
