i never got much attention from women... until i became one #DatingTips

It’s funny how Y2K is remembered as an overblown hoax and not as “for fucking once we saw a problem coming in advance, actually dedicated sufficient time and resources to solving it, and a crisis was averted before it happened.” Makes me wonder how people would think of Covid if we had handled it well.

tempted to exclusively use light themes, despite preferring dark themes, out of protest for the widespread ableist hate of light themes

Tumblr repost, dyadism, cissexism, sex is not real 

Every single person saying “sex is real, it’s gender that’s not real” to support trans people needs to sit down and think about how that affects intersex people.

Sex is literally made up. Sex characteristics? Real. Genitalia is real, hormone levels are real, chromosomes are real… But dividing those into two boxes isn’t real. We arbitrarily threw together the two most common combinations of these traits, called them male and female, and said fuck everyone who doesn’t fit into that.

Sex isn’t some holy thing that only the most radical people want to destroy, it’s a farce used to justify the medical abuse of intersex people. If you want to be an ally to intersex people, please take the time to think about these things. Think about the way we talk about sex and how it might be hurting intersex people.

Using “assigned gender” language, legitimating the idea of a sex binary, calling intersex types “conditions”/“disorders”/etc., comparing intersex people to animals with diverse sex characteristics, and not listening to or acknowledging intersex people are all things people need to stop doing if they want to be allies to intersex people.

I’m trans as well as intersex, I know that supporting trans rights is incredibly important, but it should not be done at the expense of intersex people.

The act of "cancelling" originates from queer communities of color who would use "calling out" - publicly challenging abuse of power and/or platform.

The phrase "cancel culture" was appropriated by white elites threatened by the power of social medias that allows regular people to challenge their harmful views.

Now the nebulous term of "cancel culture" is used by abusers of power and privilege to claim victimhood when faced with the consequences of their harmful behavior.

3D printing, amiibo 

It's-a me, Mario!

(And yes, it actually works)

friendly reminder that:

- you do not need to think someone is the scum of the earth to block them or mute them
- being blocked or muted does not mean you are a bad person in any way shape or form
- you have a right to surround yourself with people you enjoy, indeed, you have a right to happiness
- people liking you doesn't mean you are a good person
- you liking something or someone doesn't mean that that thing is good

it is a misconception I think a lot of people hold, and it's not truth.

:boost_ok:

"just doing it for attention" is something straight up exclusively leveled against ppl who
-express the need for attention atypically (are nd)
-have been denied attention (are traumatized)
-don't know any better (are fucking children??)

Please boost if your account is safe for non-binary people. :nonbinary: :nb:

VRChat 

I felt like popping in on VRChat today but I didn't stick around since the game was running really bad (probably because of how jam-packed the world was,) and because I had already worn myself out thanks to other VR games

It's a shame though, it's been ages since I last got to really hang out in VRChat with people from here, I really miss it :c

the thing is that it's just not possible to have an honest AAA cyberpunk game. the anticapitalist foundations of the genre inherently preclude the labor practices necessary for modern AAA development

So I just noticed that according to the box, my 3D printer is not sensitive to water, it's just afraid of wet

It's 100% valid to want cw'ed political posts

friendly reminder to CW your political stuff, particularly today

there's a lot of it
