    For what it’s worth, as an outsider looking in, gender essentialism seems somewhat common in the trans community, especially as a form of gatekeeping.

    I really don’t think that’s a fair claim.

    Trans-ness by nature proves there’s a mental component to gender and that it’s not just about how society socializes kids based on to what’s between a…[Read more]

  • Yeah, I wonder if it’s a matter of actually not realizing that, or if he thinks it’s a way to make Harry cooler.

    • So one of my quarantine hobbies is reading actual hardboiled detective novels, and I’m finally seeing some of the first works whose genius Butcher butchers. Once you put them side to side, it’s just… incredible. Every blurb compares Harry to Philip Marlowe, but Marlowe’s very first monologue was about how he painstakingly made himself presentable for a meeting with a wealthy prospective client. Harry can’t do the same thing even when his life is at stake.

      That bit near the end of Storm Front/beginning of Fool Moon, where the cops think Harry is an evil gangster but all the crooks know he’s actually a good guy, is lifted directly from The Glass Key. In Harry’s world it’s of course a poor-me complaint that he can’t get work he never does anyway. In the original book it was a ploy between two corrupt political machines, where the loss of credibility with both respectable and unsavory people was neatly done in one scheme. And maybe the best part was that it didn’t even work; it was a throwaway move that was abandoned quickly once the other side caught on. The books are full of things like that. They’re great; I can totally see how they inspired many more books of dubious quality.

      I’ll have thoughts about this specific chapter later, just wanted to gush a bit.

      • Yeah, I wonder if it’s a matter of actually not realizing that, or if he thinks it’s a way to make Harry cooler.

        • I think it’s a matter of Butcher’s firsthand exposure being maybe seeing The Maltese Falcon once in the cinemas.

      • I reread some Chandler recently, and what I was most struck by was just how good of a person Marlowe is. Marlowe refusing to have sex with an intoxicated woman in his apartment because the right thing to do is help her get home safe is a far, far cry from whatever the fuck is going on in this book.

        Like, there’s a lot of violence against women in the first gen of hardboiled (Hammett, Marlowe, etc.) but it’s always done by the bad guys. The stuff written at the kind of turnover of the genre in the 30s and 40s is really empathetic and complex, and it’s when it starts to transition into the 50s and 60s that you first start to see “bad men hurt women” transform into “men hurt women” into “hurt women.” By the time you get into the 70s, the empathy and genuine kindness of the OG hardboiled detectives has been completely subsumed into ALPHA MALES battering women, and it’s such an insult to the artistry of what men like Chandler were doing, of what they were trying to say, of the very real social changes they were earnestly wrestling with.

        I talk about the violent turn the genre takes in, oddly enough, an upcoming Umineko post, but what Butcher does is so, so typical of the later-gen men who just use the genre as an excuse to hate women, and it’s such an insult to the people who invented the subform.

        • Yeah, there are tons of examples in the early books of actual hearts of gold, not just Harry’s whiny ‘well I guess now that I’m being personally threatened I’ll kill the villains who have already hurt you’.

          One of the most staggering examples to me is the Op in The Dain Curse. The dude is so dedicated to getting the ‘cursed’ young lady out clean that he gets her on a detox regimen, because he knows she’s using the morphine to cope with her horrible circumstances and he doesn’t want it weighing her down once he’s done doing his detective work. That’s how you hero.

    • That’s the best part.

      Like, it would be so, so easy to make those relationships less weirdly problematic. Just say Murphy and her husband were the same age, rushing into life without understanding it. Just say Justin adopted Harry and Elaine when they were fourteen or something, it works for anime.

      But no, Butcher had to specifically go out of his way to make A Thing here. At this point, it’s not even digging your own grave, it’s building a full-fledged mausoleum to accommodate entire generations of corpses of bad ideas. It’s glorious.

    • Do you think these even are “allies”? Or are these groups the WC decided they should be ruling over because they’re humans and magic-users, but without any of the rights the WC gives their actual members?

      Probably something in-between, I’d say. The WC claims authority over all human magic users by default, but seems to mostly content itself with throwing Wardens at obvious problems and otherwise leave its subjects alone. It’s believable that some occult group would want them to, you know, act more like a government: offer protection, enable education, etc. They already get to deal with violence inherent in the system, may as well make use of the rest of the system.

      Of course, a lot depends on whether they can ally themselves with various non-human factions and how they stack against the WC. Vampires, at least, seem nice enough, and, technically, if you become a formal vassal of a vampire court, the WC should leave you alone…

      IDK, maybe the WC is normally the least-bad option where they are dismissive and paternalistic, but easy to manipulate into doing something for you if you genuflect before them loudly enough and wear a cool robe.

      • but seems to mostly content itself with throwing Wardens at obvious problems

        But do they even do that much?

        I could see the occult groups accepting WC oversight in return for protection, but we know Harry and the rest of the magical community weren’t able to call for backup during any of the massive clusterfucks that were the past three books, or any of the other stuff that was going on between them. We don’t quite know who knows about the WC for the most part, but Mort knows something very bad is happening with the ghosts and his reaction is to run away and assume any WC representative who shows up will only make things worse. And the way they talk here makes it sound like anyone short of a full wizard gets chucked right to the wolves without a second thought, the issue is just that Harry is a full wizard so they need a reason to hand him over for the vampires to slowly torture to death.

        • Yeah, I phrased it badly. What they do is send Wardens specifically when there is a warlock flinging dark magic around (which may have more to do with the need to protect secrecy than actually solving problems), not necessary to deal with other problems.

          It’s actually possible that Mort skipped town in part because if any Wardens were dispatched, he’d be killed as an “obvious” cause of ghost problems.

          So, what it means is that those occult organizations already have to toe the line and not do anything fun like altering the past or transforming people into newts, but they don’t really have many benefits, and with Wardens not really being available in time, they at best put a stop to a rampage or punish the guilty (assuming they can find the guilty, given they generally aren’t familiar with communities they govern), but not really save people from said rampage.

          Perhaps the condition of their support is that Wardens would be stationed in their territory and work closely with those organizations. We know that even a fuck-up wizard like Harry can utterly subvert local balance of power, so getting an actually competent wizard on your side may be worth a lot.

          Though, honestly, I’m more curious about those organizations themselves. Like, who are those people? What do they do? How do they make sense of the world, what is their credo?

          It’s definitely a choice to drop “yeah, there are numerous occult organizations semi-independent of the WC” with zero elaboration or follow-up.

          So I’m forced to imagine Unknown Armies cabals are now a thing here.

          • This is canon to DF now:

            Diabetes costs keep rising beyond the ability of people to pay, mental health is often written off as a joke, missing limbs have no permanent pain solutions, and comfort with one’s body or finding peace in illegal substances aren’t even really considered health issues. The South Street cabal is already opposed to the system before the campaign begins but things start to get violent in the first session.

            The South Street cabal are a group of adepts who have been working together for a few months now. They all met in different ways but are united by their one true hatred: the state of healthcare in America. It’s weird enough to have more than one body-modifying occultist in a city, let alone in the same room together, but they all have such different styles and approaches that it doesn’t create conflict. In fact, there’s something comforting about having people under-stand your weirdness so well without undoing the paradox of energy that magick creates.

            WHO THEY ARE

            The five cabal members realized that their strength was in a shared understanding of body modification and the magick that arises from it. Together, they created Khrusomancy and began practicing their magick together as a cabal to accomplish small tasks. Sometimes they use it to help an individual with a certain project (stealing medical supplies for Antoine’s modifications, for example) or to gain more income for the whole group (hyping Lucia’s performances to produce more cash flow). They’re a pretty close-knit family and like many families, they’ve grown closer through their shared struggles.

            The healthcare industry isn’t just some mundane human structure. Much of its corruption is due to horrific magickal influence the cabal believes to be much like their own. Each member had strange encounters regarding their healthcare, such as witnessing bizarre creatures disguised as hospital workers, pharmacy techs, family doctors, and insurance adjusters, but they didn’t see these signs until they awakened as adepts.

            Magick has opened their eyes to this insidious menace: other adepts and cabals working hard to steal life, happiness, and autonomy from unknowing human populaces. These people taint the thing the cabal holds most dear: agency in healthcare and well-being. Confronting these sinister forces and ejecting them from the healthcare industry might actually make a difference in everyone’s lives — at least here in Philadelphia. It also works to eradicate a darker manifestation of Khrusomancy and allows their interpretation to grow stronger in the cosmos, though they’re not consciously aware of that fact. The cabal pursues leads to follow up on the occult sightings and associated rumors.

            WHAT IS KHRUSOMANCY?

            Khrusomancy is a magickal tradition that focuses on changing the body to change the world. Through body alteration and various forms of extreme surgical modification, khrusomancers seek to alter external forces shaping culture, society, and even the environment.

          • A big issue to me is the only thing we see Wardens doing is going for the people they already know about, which suggests all registering your organization would do is as soon as anything goes wrong the Wardens wipe you out and only actually investigate when killing everyone they know about didn’t solve the problem.

            But, it’s possible that’s something that only applies to semi-rogue WC members. Maybe registering your occult organization normally protects you against that because the individual members are now vetted to be non-wizard-caliber, so when the Wardens and their complete inability to actually investigate before just beheading likely candidates skip over you entirely. If it gets you safety from preemptive beheadings and a (magic?)phone line to the Wardens, that’s actually a pretty good deal, especially given how hands-off the WC seems to be otherwise. And you could then see why these occult organizations might still prefer the WC over the vampires, who do a better job of running their territory but actually do run their territory rather than assuming whatever the have-nots are getting up to is irrelevant.

             

          • It’s actually possible that Mort skipped town in part because if any Wardens were dispatched, he’d be killed as an “obvious” cause of ghost problems.

            It’s possible he just didn’t want to be anywhere a Warden was being dispatched to, because they get dispatched when things are bad, and he doesn’t want to be anywhere near it.

    • How is it even possible for a 27 year old to marry a 17 year old? Surely as soon as the man goes to try to register his “marriage” the investigation for statutory rape would start? To say nothing of how much it looks like sex trafficking. Where were the Chicago PD when a 30-year-old man was in city hall claiming a minor was his wife? And where were her parents? Was she emancipated?

      Or was it “marriage” in the sense that some church was like “yeah this is totes normal congrats” and it was never legalized?

      The obsession of a certain class of creepy old guy with how hot and sexy statutory rape is is among my least favorite creepy old dude moves.

      • So I looked it up at the time, because I too was thinking this sounded hard to believe, but:

        1) Seventeen is currently legal in the state, and a lot of those laws are actually horrifically recent, so if this is set in 2000 and the marriage happen ten years ago…

        2) Age laws are actually about avoiding single mothers. If you’re willing to marry the kid you raped it’s cool – there are exemptions to the minimum age for marriage in a bunch of places if the kid getting married is currently pregnant or has already had a kid herself. So yes, everyone at that wedding knows the guy’s been fucking a teenager and everyone’s cool with it because he’s making an honest woman of her.

        • The unfun thing I learned today is that in some states, if you’re a pedophile, there’s no minimum marriage age if you get your victim pregnant. Thanks, US!

          But! Age of consent aside (and also, TIL it’s 16 in most of the US, because everything sucks), the marriage age in every single state is 18, and in two states and Puerto Rico it’s 21. In Illinois, you need parental consent to get married at 16 or 17. Unless Murphy was emancipated or had the consent of her parents, this couldn’t happen, and her parents being on board points to something really seriously being wrong with her home life far beyond one creep.

          That said, according to wiki, a minimum age was only instituted in Missouri, Butcher’s home state, in 2018 (a bill which, incidentally, also banned someone over the age of 21 from marrying a minor, because men are so awful that needs to be a law). I wonder if Butcher wasn’t just going with what he knew and assuming the IL laws were the same.

          tl;dr This isn’t possible unless Murphy’s parents are some sick fuckers.

          • and her parents being on board points to something really seriously being wrong with her home life far beyond one creep.

            Oh, I figured we can take that as a given. It’s a full traditional wedding with a photographer and everything. Plus if her family objected back then, she’d have people on her side when the divorce happened telling her he was a creep who took advantage of her.

            Pretty much the only question is if her family actively supported the relationship all the way through or if they reacted to finding out about it by being upset but telling her to get married so at least she wasn’t living in sin. Given she’s in her grandmother’s house, possibly she was raised by Grandma, who may have been more accepting of very young marriage and possibly extra motivated to get Murphy in a new relationship before her last living family died.

            • Given she’s in her grandmother’s house, possibly she was raised by Grandma, who may have been more accepting of very young marriage and possibly extra motivated to get Murphy in a new relationship before her last living family died.

              I interpreted it as her getting her grandma’s house because her grandma died and her parents already had a house.

            • Missed this!

              Actually, her being raised by her grandma is the one thing that could make this sad but not horrifying. I could totally see someone that age being worried about Murphy being alone in the world and relieved she found someone to take care of her before Grandma dies, with Grandma just thinking the age gap and young marriage is normal. It’s still messed up, but it’s the kind of messed up where her grandma meant well and Murphy may not have been exposed to alternatives.

              • I wasn’t trying to make it less horrifying. I was trying to clarify what I thought Butcher wrote. Which would basically be the exact opposite of making it less horrifying.

              • Comment nesting strikes again: this was a response to Farla.

              • Oh, yeah, I see it now. There was one more level of nesting before it got into the straight line nesting. My bad.

      • I believe most, or at least many, states allow you to get married at about 16 or 17 with parental approval. Not sure about Illinois specifically, but a lot of the Mid-West is like that.

    • It’s particularly confusing when Harry’s type seemed like it was milfs in the first book. But then the second had the high school college werewolves and the third had sexy homeless child.

      • Well, he was sixteen when he started dating Elaine. It’s a fair bet his type was “girls” back then.

      • It could be the matter of the first book being painted by the numbers. We’ve talked before about how Butcher wrote it to prove he can write formulatic shit, so it’s possible he was just reaching for the most noir-ish things he could think of, and noir does tend to favor mature women.

        Even then there is a weird emphasis on cheerleader voice and Murphy being smol and cute.

    • Well, this seems an appropriate time for a revival.

      So now we know how to get Farla to post a review of another chapter. We just have to make Act post another Umineko chapter.

      a grizzled old dame 

      Butcher is officially no longer secretly ninety. He’s at least one hundred.

      Representatives of the White Council’s allies—secret occult brotherhoods, mostly—each gave a brief speech, declaring his or her group’s support of the Council in the war.

      I wonder how big of a blasting rod was pointed at them to get that support. Because that’s really the only reason to give it.

      I wouldn’t be surprised if every last one was going to head back to recommend they defect.

      Well, the vampires have far more to offer them than the WC does. Would you rather get dragged into a war you have no chance of benefiting from, or… go to a fancy vampire party?

      Yeah, the bar of what an ally has to offer is that low, I guess.

      Also, despite all that about leaving carefully and with Warden escorts, Harry just walks to his car.

      In a well written book, this would be clear evidence they want Harry dead.

      and also maybe there’ll be splash damage on bystanders

      At least there’s pretty strong evidence of this. Shit, the WC should just hand Harry over to the vampires. They’ll all be dead in a week.

      Certainly he feels no responsibility for the actual murder victim whose name and picture he does have.

      … Well, I’ve already forgotten them, so I can’t really criticize Harry for it. Who are we talking about, again?

      Who are they pinning things on?

      I kinda assumed their job was more keeping things from getting pinned on the people who didn’t deserve it, and sweeping the actions of the people who took care of the problem (Harry) under the rug. They don’t have to fabricate evidence, because the cackling madman who summoned the demon is dead. They don’t have to throw someone in jail when a vampire drains someone of blood, they just have to make sure the death doesn’t get ruled a homicide.

      It’s still fabricating evidence, but it’s not pinning things on people. It’s probably not as hard as it seems. Lots of cases just go cold for perfectly normal reasons.

      I can buy that helping, but she’s also an overworked cop who lives alone and also mostly at her job

      I think it’s more a matter of… attachment? Harry has a lot of crap, but he could pack it all up and move out the next day, and not think a single lick about his apartment. Harry’s home is safe and comforting because it’s the magical equivalent of the White Tower. Murphy’s is safe and comforting because it’s lived in and familiar.

      That was the Murphy I knew and loved.

      Considering how much Harry actually cares, or knows, about Murphy, maybe she just likes grandma decorating. Of course her office is spartan and utilitarian. It’s an office. You’re not supposed to have a knitting basket in your office.

      What I don’t get is why the detail about him being so much older.

      Maybe Harry is just overestimating his age because he’s a little fat or something? Harry seems to think Murphy currently looks like she’s seventeen, so I’m not sure he’s the best at estimating ages.

      This isn’t about finding an excuse for why it’s not her fault

      Sober Murphy would’ve known that it’s pointless trying to explain that to Harry.

      In a way, she’d been raped.

      I’m sure this will be handled with all the delicacy and care of the last rape victim the series introduced.

      We all remember how well not telling women anything has worked to protect them, don’t we?

      You know, there is something to be said of not getting people involved in things to protect them from those things, but it seems like Harry has a bad habit of deciding to not get people involved in things to protect them only after he has gotten them involved.

      Harry has been working with them for years and he never mentioned this incredibly relevant thing to look for.

      … Isn’t this not even the first time Murphy’s encountered ectoplasm on screen? Ah, Urban Fantasy. Why use your perfectly convenient narrative trope of just having the narrator explain to the reader what something is, when you can have a character that should have probably experienced it before ask about it?

      It’s his dead sister who he fucked when he was a teenager!

      Surprisingly, she’s not the least bit stacked.

      • It’s still fabricating evidence, but it’s not pinning things on people. It’s probably not as hard as it seems. Lots of cases just go cold for perfectly normal reasons.See, that’s what I’m assuming because Murphy seems like a good person, but every time the subject comes up it’s about how this posting is supposed to ruin the person’s career. We know whatever Murphy’s doing, it’s pleasing the higher-ups, but also they don’t seem to be in on the masquerade and object to her employing Harry. That strongly suggests Murphy’s somehow solving cases. If the rest of the force were somewhat in on it and everyone agreed all anyone wants out of Special Investigations is for whatever weird thing is happening to stop so the case can be closed (and trusted them enough to give up cases that looked solvable because actually the killer was a ghost), that would work, but it should be explained.

        I think it’s more a matter of… attachment? Harry has a lot of crap, but he could pack it all up and move out the next day, and not think a single lick about his apartment.

        Would he, though? He describes the place a lot. If nothing else it’s an incredibly convenient location – two stories, easy access since the door’s on the ground floor and with a sheltered basement for him to work safely in. He goes there when he’s hurt and it holds the stuff he values. And although he has an office, we keep having Harry needing to rush to his office from his house because he’s at home by choice and at the office only when someone else is going there.

        • every time the subject comes up it’s about how this posting is supposed to ruin the person’s career

          If it gets out that this is how she’s closing her cases, it’d definitely ruin her career.

          We know whatever Murphy’s doing, it’s pleasing the higher-ups

          The suits in charge of police forces want cases closed. It doesn’t look good for their reelection as police commissioner if there’s a lot of unsolved mysterious crimes.

          everyone agreed all anyone wants out of Special Investigations is for whatever weird thing is happening to stop so the case can be closed

          That could absolutely be what’s happening, they just don’t know just how weird the “weird thing” is. Special Investigations is just a formalization of constantly getting handed shitty headaches of a case because you pissed off your bosses.

          … Which would actually be far more interesting than what Murphy does now. Imagine if she was constantly handed vampire cases because she pissed her bosses off by refusing to just close cases, because she’s basically a PC from nHunter?

          Would he, though?

          All that is from a practical perspective, though. Not an emotional one. If your childhood home burned down, you wouldn’t think “Aw, shucks, that place was only two blocks from the local train station and supermarket!”
