Pingy-Dingy Wednesday – Mark Charles, Candidate for President

As part of honoring Juneteenth today, I recommend watching Mark Charles’s video announcing his candidacy for President. Last election, he says, we had the choice between voting for explicit or implicate white supremacy – brilliant. He speaks about many more gravely important issues, as well; I felt deeply grateful as I listened to his sane and compassionate words.

Mark Charles, you get one pingy-dingy! Thank you for your generosity and brilliance and hard work, and for the life- and earth-saving conversation you are inviting us to join.

I’m a typewriter whompin’, card catalogue lovin’ white girl from back in the day, and I yearn for a time before the covers of trade paperbacks were all squidgy, so you can imagine that I don’t actually understand what a pingback is. I do know that it can in some way be part of spreading the love, and since that’s what I’m all about at The Total Femme… every Wednesday, I pay homage to the laughter, love, and inspiration to be had elsewhere online.

At the Total Femme, my intention is to post three times a week: Meditations for Queer Femmes on Monday, Pingy-Dingy Wednesday on Wednesday and Femme Friday on Friday. Rather than play catch-up in a stressful fashion on those weeks when life prevents posting, I have decided to just move gaily forward: if I miss a Monday, the next post will be on Wednesday, and so on. Thank you, little bottle of antibiotics for inspiring me in this! (“…if it’s almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a missed one.”)
