It bothers me when I see people whinging about people who "follow too many accounts" on microblogging platforms. Particularly on fedi.

Like,maybe people use social media differently from the way you do, yeah? Fedi is all about curating your own experience, and maybe some people want a different experience from yours.

trans rights uk 

So a High Court judge ruled that since Gender Dysphoria is no longer a mental illness, or anything really, its against human rights of trans people for them to have to get diagnosed with it as a disorder in order to legally change their sex/gender on their birth certificates - so its going to have to likely be removed from the process.

Whcih leads to the interesting conundrum for the UK government because that was the last bit of medical gatekeeping they had on the system, so.. theyre stuck trying to figure out what medical boundary that can actually feasibly impose.

Like they can't require trans people to have surgery or hormones, so a gender incongruence diagnosis would be odd.

they dont have any other transgender diagnoses that exist, so they're left with the option of vague medical approval.. but then that means they're now medicalising being trans which was established long before this that was no longer going to happen.. so..

Every week or two, GOG emails me to let me know that a game i wanted to buy 8 years ago is on sale.

I wonder how much of my life I've spent very confused about something I saw on a microblogging platform

Calibri has some absolutely hideous ligatures.

I've given up on finding a local place that will let me do mobile deposit, so I phoned up my t-mobile agent and got her to send me the cheapest Android phone they have in stock, and later this week I'm going to set up an account at the state employee credit union.

for whatever boneheaded reason, a huge number of financial institutions don't let you do mobile check deposit from a rooted phone.

Because how dare I want administrative access on a computer *that I paid for* and *that I keep on my person at all times* 2/?

So my bank who I've been with as long as they've been a bank closed up shop last weekend and transferred my account to another bank, which I'm not super enthusiastic about. I've been looking for another bank/credit union to switch to, buuuuut 1/?

do you ever find yourself just struck by how much really good music there is?

mothers day 

idk what im saying exactly i guess just. if you are holding some painful guilt over something you did or failed to do wrt to ur mother today i think it's okay to let that go mostly. no parents are perfect and it's not inconceivable or unfair that they might be hurt at not being contacted on mother's/father's day, but a Good, Compassionate parent, the kind who hypothetically deserves shout-outs and extra love today, would be sympathetic towards your limitations and struggles
