there is an art to being agender, or rather a knack. the knack lies in learning how to throw yourself at gender and miss

Pinned toot

I have a lot of feelings about gender. most of them are stuff like “nope” and [incoherent screaming].

I think we should confiscate Ernest Cline's ability to write

any "cyborg manifesto" for the 2020s should acknowledge that capitalism exists, disability exists, transness exists, and that we perversely yet inextricably rely on the technology of modern-day capitalism to provide for our base needs - then figure out how to overthrow that structure while maintaining ourselves and our communities.

transphobia gripe, sex, ready player 2 

absolutely fucking classic of cishet men to say “I’d fuck a trans woman” to “show” that they’re not transphobic

yikes

aster :heart_nb: boosted

so many cis people I know irl in particular seem to forget that this is a thing that you can do; people who fuck things up after years of being told otherwise, so I have to take them aside and go “look, you’re gonna have to do a bit of work, it’s the least you can do”

tip to not fuck up your friend’s pronouns, especially if they’ve changed their pronouns recently: practice them when your friend isn’t around

practice your friend’s pronouns to yourself out loud. repeat phrases that you often say about them with the correct pronouns to yourself. likewise if they ask you to use a different name, say their name and pronouns to yourself over and over again. mistakes happen, but you can reduce the frequency of the mistakes by practicing

trans-hating patent trolls (and links to help) 

Shop Enby, Black trans-owned sex toy shop, is being sued by some assholes who think they own the rights to the word “enby.”

Gofundme for legal costs: gofundme.com/f/429sh-nobody-ow

Their store for shopping: shopenby.com/

Public records supposedly say the company suing is Wildflower Sex (but I haven’t verified this or found a link).

I had a dream when I was napping where arranging the multiplication table in a certain way modulo a particular number, and shading the results from black to white, would result in a photorealistic photograph of a bear

it was named "rogin's bear" after the presumed discoverer

mild self deprecation 

is my problem that I’m not approachable or just that I’m boring lol

prob the latter bc I’m not exactly intimidating (I don’t think?)

Show thread

maybe I need to be more approachable somehow bc I hear from other trans friends of mine that lots of other trans people ask them for advice and stuff but nobody really asks me things

ofc I don’t owe anybody info but I like feeling useful I guess lol

Show thread

basically I’m at the sort of level where if you do something for long enough, you tend to get at least moderately competent at it even if you don’t try very hard I guess
