I’ve mentioned that I like to use Pinterest to find examples for my “Writing Glitch” posts, right? Well, that source is no longer an option: I don’t know why, but Pinterest has been, for the last few months, throwing a lot of… very unpleasant pins at me. When it started, maybe thirty percent of my feed was right-wing politics and the occasional “Yay, Jesus!” sort of meme. I’m not interested in either, by the way, and I’ve never pinned anything that would suggest an interest in such. A couple of days ago, at least eighty percent of the pins I was seeing were aggressively right-wing political and/or religious (not that the two can really be separated these days): books on Christian marriage counselling, Christian child rearing — and don’t think those weren’t triggering for someone whose PTSD is partly due to having been raised in a religious household — Christian business/financial advice… and lots of “Yay, Orange Thing! Boo, anyone who thinks non-white, non-male, non-Christian humans are human!” political memes and whatnot.
Anyway. I cannot tollerate Pinterest right now, so I need a new source for “glitch” examples, and soon. If any of you wonderful humans have a suggestion for where I can find some brief snippets of writing with bad grammar and punctuation (and maybe the occasional bad “science” thing), it would be much appreciated.
