Politics, 2020 election
I'm really encouraged to see someone in US politics saying "here are the bad guys." They're arrayed against us. They're going to fight back, but we are going to beat them. I'm sick of politicians acting as though there's no bad actors, always working to obscure their existence and trying to "reason" with them.

i'm crying, like, a lot
i think that was a metaphor for forgiving people, getting over your shit, and taking the best of your exes with you?
i can't believe that this game was made mostly by dudes, it's the most ragingly lesbian thing i've ever seen, and that's not subtext, that's straight up text. and yet zero percent male gaze. good job Simogo. make sure you have trans care on the health plan
(haha, i'm just kidding, you can be a wlw ally without being a girl, i mean, in theory anyway. and also tiny game studios don't have healthcare)
also: five badass exes. this is not some soppy tragic lesbian love story where someone loses the one other lesbian that exists and then is sad forever. this girl absolutely fucks. inspires the passion that makes somebody turn into a bat dragon just to try to get you back.
lack of elders
There's a very good reason why there aren't many elders in trans online spaces.
There's a huge amount of hatred towards elders from newly out trans folks flailing around in the dark looking for an enemy. And in internet spaces where there are like 300 newly out people for every 1 elder there's a lot of galvanising around knee jerk ideas that dont have a knowledge of history
Queer is a slur, Drag is transphobic, No kink at Pride..
gender hot take
none of the following statements are categorically true:
- being transgender is a choice
- being transgender is not a choice
- your gender is flexible and will change over time
- you were always X gender, you just didn't know it yet
one or more of these statements may apply to you. if you interpret that as being the "correct" one, and apply it to others, you are incorrect.
a lot of ostensible leftists will happily rag on fat people, short people, ace people, kinnies, poly people, furries, juggalos, gender non-conforming people, and a lot of other subgroups if they can get 10 retweets out of it
they know to stay clear of the things they'll get ragged on for, but merely out of self-preservation
This looks like a cool project.
"The Open Book aims to be a simple device that anyone with a soldering iron can build for themselves. The Open Book should be comprehensible: the reader should be able to look at it and understand, at least in broad strokes, how it works. It should be extensible, so that a reader with different needs can write code and add accessories that make the book work for them."
