It was made by an artist with ADHD for people with ADHD.  This is the original comic: The artist, Dani Donovan, has made several comics like this in relations to ADHD and how our brains work. What was made by someone with ADHD for other people with ADHD has been stolen, and she’s not too happy about it. Neither is the ADHD community, as it seems like people often dismiss our disorder because “everyone’s forgetful sometimes!” Our brains work differently from neurotypical people’s brains. That’s why she made this.  This is her twitter.  Here is her website.

maireddog: Mark Ashton died on this day, the 11th of February, in 1987. Mark was born on the 19th of May, 1960 in Oldham, but grew up in Portrush, Northern Ireland. He moved to London in 1978, where he worked in a bar in King’s Cross, in drag as a barmaid with a blonde beehive. In the 1980s, he volunteered for London Lesbian and Gay Switchboard, campaigned for CND and joined the Communist Party, becoming the first gay secretary of the Young Communist League. Though Mark transformed the Party’s approach to LGBT rights, he and Mike Jackson, who he’d met through Switchboard, wanted to be active as openly gay people. They formed Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM) when they collected donations for miners on strike at 1984 Gay Pride. In the evening of 1984 Pride, a miner spoke at a rally, and they were struck by the similarities between the two struggle, of LGBT rights and the Miners’ Strike. Having collected about £150, they advertised a meeting in Capital Gay. 11 people turned up and from the meeting they made a leaflet to launch LGSM - the leaflet was accepted except with an amendment to ‘one in ten miners is gay.’ As LGSM, they supported the miners as lesbian and gay people. At the second meeting, they decided to focus on one community, of the Dulais Valley, as one of the members, Hugh Williams, was from there. They then met David (Dai) Donovan, who also had thought through the similarities of their struggles and how LGSM could help. A month later, 27 lesbians and gay men, arrived at Onllwyn village in Dulais Valley. Other than some hostility (and confusion towards vegetarianism), they experienced warmth, friendship and solidarity. LGSM raised £20,000 for families of miners on strike, and based on The Sun writing that “a group of perverts” were “supporting the pits,” they organised the Pits and Perverts concert in December, 1984, headlined by Bronski Beat. The miners marched with LGSM at Gay Pride in 1985. Mark was admitted to hospital on 30th January, 1987, and died 12 days later from pneumonia, aged 26. At his memorial, there were banners from the Communist Party, Anti-Apartheid, anti-nuclear, Caribbean and community groups, as well as from LGSM. The Mark Ashton Trust was created to support individuals diagnosed with Aids; Mark is also remembered on the UK Aids Memorial Quilt and by Terrence Higgins Trust, with the Mark Ashton Red Ribbon Fund and a plaque at their London headquarters. In 2017, on what would have been his 57th birthday, he was honoured with a blue plaque above Gay’s The Word bookshop. [Images: 1. Mark Ashton at Gay Pride 1981. 2.

CONCEALED CARRY WINS AGAIN! Newly-released video (attached) from inside the George Webb restaurant at S. 21st and W. Mitchell St. shows an adult male go behind the counter to approach and punch a female manager-waitress in the face. Alderman Bob Donovan, who obtained the video footage yesterday, said the incident took place last week. He said he hopes the public can help the Milwaukee PoliceDepartment locate the suspect as soon as possible. “It is sickening to see this unsuspecting worker assaulted so brutally by this individual,” said Alderman Donovan, chair of the Public Safety and Health Committee. Alderman Donovan said MPD is actively seeking a known individual but also welcomes additional information from the community that might help the case. “It was an unprovoked attack and I am asking anyone with information to please contact MPD immediately at 414-935-7360 so we can get him off the street and behind bars where he belongs,” he said. The video shows a George Webb co-worker pointing a firearm at the suspect to get him away from the victim. Alderman Donovan said the co-worker – who he was told has a concealed carry permit for the firearm – was successful in getting the suspect to leave the premises. “One can only imagine what might have occurred if that employee had not pulled out her weapon,” the alderman said. “Sadly, I’m told the co-worker quit her job shortly after the incident.” “And can you really blame her for quitting? This is just sickening and I am tired of this crap happening in my district and in too many other neighborhoods across Milwaukee,” he said. Alderman Donovan said the victim is facing thousands of dollars in medical bills to treat her injuries and does not have insurance. “This woman is struggling to just eek out a living and has this idiot attack her for no reason,” he said. “I am told the attacker has an extensive criminal record – surprise, surprise – another glaring indictment of our criminal justice system!” Alderman Donovan said. “A person capable of this brutality is a threat to each and every one of us and needs to be behind bars,” he said. “Wake up Milwaukee, wake up!” he said.: CONCEALED CARRY WINS AGAIN!
