I made another puppet! Meet Drake!
i first came out a month before the election, and when november rolled around was one of the scariest months of my life. i felt trapped between a rock and a hard place: risk my life being out, or hurt myself going back in the closet.
the thing that kept me out, kept me transitioning, was knowing that if i walked proud others might see it as still an option
being obviously trans is like being a lighthouse, so that others starting their journey can see a path forward
It's interesting to me that "emoticon" and "emoji" look so similar but are etymologically unrelated.
"emoticon" - "emotion" + "icon"
"emoji" - 絵 ("e", meaning "picture" or "art") + 文字 ("moji", meaning "(written) character" or "kana")
Meet Avi! 🥑

Happy Monday, folks.
I find setting my intentions for the day really helps. If I know what I intend for the day, I can pace myself a lot easier which really helps in maintaining my self care on a day to day basis.

Just wrote about what it's been like lately working on my dissertation, autoethnography, and feelings of anxiety related to it all:
🤔I don’t think it’s a coincidence that so many of the enby folk I know are into Kpop (and BTS more specifically).
9 days till the shutdown of witches.town
needless to say, if you haven't exported your data from there and moved to another instance already, please do so
"Leave politics out of tech."
People build tech. People use tech. You cannot have tech without people. So, yes, people will be bringing politics, rights, and representation into tech with them.
The only people I see whining about politics being brought into tech are (checks notes) oh look. White men.
