#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.
In suspended transition from 2000-2016, struggling towards transgirl since then.
Apparently, the BBCA broadcast of Doctor Who has a bunch of plot-relevant stuff cut out to make room for advertisers, AND that extends to the paid streaming services too. No wonder this season isn’t making much sense.
As always, piracy is the better option.
Q: renting in UK Show more
Someone dear to me who lives in England is trying to move out on her own for the first time, but is very socially anxious -- so I'm trying to find out as much as I can about what's involved in finding a place to rent (she has a budget) and in ongoing living stuff.
I've only ever rented in the US, and not recently. There's a suggestion that renters have to pay some kind of tax up front? (Here, the landlord pays property taxes, and there is no rental tax.)
I've joined this instance because I'm an ARPA member on the SDF. I also keep a few back-up identities on other instances too.
I'm curious about gopher, Mastodon, OSS, Linux, Emacs, Org-mode,
tabletop RPGs, philosophy, history, and programming. I'm known to
fiddle with Python on occasion.

question for folks with universal healthcare Show more
like, between friends and family, we have tens of thousands of dollars of medical debt. over a ten year period, we've been billed for hundreds of thousands. much of that was written off for lack of payment, or forgiven on the basis of malpractice. it's hard for me to imagine not having this weight on you, this financial pressure that seems to want you dead or at least starving, this... fear of seeking treatment because the cost may leave you sicker.
companies: sure is weird how millennials dont care for stable employment
me: JUST FUCKING HIRE ME FULL TIME PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD
companies: yep, they just hate having long term jobs. sigh. nothing to be done i guess
One of the very first things humans learn when they are born is to alert someone when they aren't okay. Then a bunch of people tell you not to and give you whole layers of shame about what you can need, when you can need it, and how you are allowed to ask, and who is allowed to ask, etc., etc.
Fuck all that. We literally exist to help each other or else we wouldn't keep hanging out with each other and figuring out new ways to connect.
Ask for help when you need it because it's fucking normal.

Pepsi & Cocacola do taste different, but I don't like either as a company, but enjoy both drinks in certain moods (though diet vanilla coke def goes with a lot of moods)...
I honestly wish someone would coopify those bastards.

wrestling but everyone please read. Show more
Hello, some of you do and some of you do not enjoy pro-wrestling but please read this quickly
Men in the wrestling world can exist outside the WWE and make decent to good, to really good money with shows and merch through the promotion received. Female wrestlers, nope. Women's wrestling is still considered "Niche" compared to men's wrestling, and the women don't have alot of options. Throughout the industry from WWE down, women get paid WAY less than men.
