#introductions I don't know what I am, but I'm here.
I write a lot about feelings (especially grief) and dissolving the plutonomy. I code; I record original music; I build shelves; I pull out wisteria; I parent; I friend.

Saw this guy in the basement. He's tiny -- smaller than a wormsnake.
Our best guess at this point is that he's not venomous, but I'm not going to depend on that. I'm hoping he'll find some other place to be, now that I've taken away his nice safe bucket.
If you know what he is, though, that could be useful.
Tornado warning, wheee...
Absolutely nothing exciting weather-wise here at Hypertwin Manor. The power *still* hasn't even blipped (it will probably wait until some random moment on a perfectly nice day).
...and just as I type that, a UPS beeps briefly, but the lights don't change or anything. Go figure.
The storm does seem to have pretty much moved on, though.
I do everything in the world to avoid sitting down at my keyboard and then when I do it’s like each time I magically realise I fucking LOVE writing and I FORGOT since yesterday

Queer Eye but it's 5 trans computer programmers teaching a cishet techbro to not be a douchenozzle
I'm looking for a mentor for both technical and peopling mentorship. Someone who is underrepresented in technology like I am.
I've been so very absent from here, haven't I.
Things have been very busy since about 3 weeks ago, getting ready to take both B & Z up to Warren Wilson -- and they didn't stop being busy for 2.5 weeks after that.
At least we're done with major appointments for awhile. Today I just need to pick up our backup (i.e. second) power generator from the repair shop, and maybe do our Friday shopping a day early.

haute-Right argumentation in a nutshell:
"Why do you dislike submarine sandwiches?"
"Well, I feel very strongly that in the larger scheme of things, bicycles are much much better than submarines, and you can't fit everything between two slices of bread, and after all -- may I remind you -- today *is* Tuesday."
Scientific tests have proven that the national appliance recession is due to reverse substance instability, and it has been determined that the catastrophic political deficit is due to quantum inversion discrimination.
Hey pals do you think you could boost this so I can find & connect with more trans men here & irl? Thank you!
Governance Work is Work Show more
I think a pernicious thing about the dominant discourse around citizenship is its framing of voting, civic participation, etc., as a moral duty, and thus lack of it as a moral failing.
I'm coming to think that this really problematically conceals the fact that developing an informed opinion on issues is *work*, which people with more economic privilege tend to have more spare capacity to do so, which seems reflected in class-based rates of voting in the US.
WARNING BE CAREFUL personal state violence against a comrade Show more
my anarchist comrade bought a transit ticket, and rightly refused to show it to the transit guards, who demanded he show it
they then arrested him. they threw him on the floor of the station and used excessive force. they don't legally have the power of arrest here in perth. this is immoral state violence.
i have video. i will be uploading to my peertube.

An article about @eryn -- "Staddon" is me (I was interviewed by email):
Although it mostly gets things write, I'm afraid it isn't terribly well written; I feel like I should write my own commentary on it.
