A Hero for Our Times

This piece is a companion piece to my last post, which touched upon 'fake news'. Oddly enough, I haven't written much about Chuck Tingle, Hugo finalist and Taekwando grandmaster (who clearly knows a thing or two about cultural judo).

Chuck has now created a work of genius, a new fake news site called, in true Tingle fashion, Buttbart. The site is a bit perfunctory at this point, but it contains links to not-for-profit organizations which defend civil rights. Chuck's Twitter feed is a stream of outsider observations, outré gay erotica, bizarre affirmations, and some genuinely nice content. Chuck's mantra is that Love Is Real for All Who Kiss, and the catchphrase of the Resistance is Love Trumps Hate. It's nice to see Dr Chuck Tingle using his unique voice to push back against the regressives.

I had until now never heard the term 'dinosaur erotica.'
