what it is to be nonbinary. 

privilege, like gender, is not binary nor otherwise fully discrete. we are smart enough to know that our privileges are contextual and not decided by us.

we know ourselves not innately, but through our reflections in others' faces. we know that we are not self-contained and self-deterministic, and somehow yet we defy expectation.

and that's fine. we can deal with it.

scalie.club admin, no longer shutting down 

As the title says, scalie.club is no longer shutting down, it will remain active for the foreseeable future.

RunnIng the 'tootctl statuses remove' command (to remove remote posts by users not followed by anyone on scalie.club) shrank the database by over 1.5 gigabytes, removing the immediate obligation to upgrade. The can's been kicked down the road, but again, the existence of options beyond "upgrade or die" makes that possibility more reasonable.

on the topic of games that discuss heavy topics 

it's always valid to refuse to engage with media because of the cultural or personal traumas that it evokes, but critical analysis requires actually engaging with the text.

when a claim about a text are passed around with no specific textual reasons, it's hard to know whether or not it originated from critical analysis.

having no stake in the game's reputation, i would be happy to learn that it did, and what those reasons are

on the topic of games that discuss heavy topics 

i saw a vague take that Cult of the Lamb makes light of victims of real cult violence.

i have not played or purchased the game but i've seen footage of it and the actual text of the game seems to be pretty critical of not just cults, but also specifically Christian fundamentalist leadership, intentionally associating the two. (whether or not that is a conflation it deserves to make is one thing, but not related to the take at hand)

alabama prison strike 2022 

"The strike organizers allege Eighth Amendment violations due to overcrowding. They're calling for lawmakers to make the following changes:

- Repeal the habitual offender law, which requires longer sentences for people convicted of multiple crimes, including life sentences for those convicted of a Class A felony after three previous felony convictions;
- Make the "presumptive standards" retroactive immediately;
- Repeal the drive-by shooting statute, which allows prosecutors to charge someone with capital murder if they are in a vehicle when they fatally shoot a victim;
- Create a statewide conviction integrity unit to investigate possible cases of wrongful incarceration;
- Create mandatory parole criteria that will guarantee parole to all eligible persons;
- Streamline the review processes for medical furloughs and early release of elderly inmates;
- Allow juvenile offenders to become eligible for parole after 15 years served, instead of the current 30-year requirement; and
- Get rid of life sentencing without the chance of parole."

You can download and hash it yourself, and it should still match - 1337e2ef42b9bee8de06a4d223a51337

I think this is the first PNG/MD5 hashquine.

large study concludes that roughly 1.5% of the general population have celiac disease and 70% don't know it.

This means: if you have gut problems or weird eczema or fatigue or depression: genuinely quite probably could be me and the gang
