Hi friends! I've been feeling this way for a while but was holding out to see if this changed - but it kinda hasn't. I just don't use this space very much, and I feel weird being responsible for maintaining it but not using it.
Is there anyone in the w.e. community that would be interested in talking about taking over IT functions? I'd still be around, even still pay for hosting. But y'all need a more attentive admin.
Hi friends! I've not been around too much lately, sorry about that - but I wanted to share a twitter thread I wrote about autism that's going a little bit viral. This is all the stuff I wish I had known when I was a kid - learning it saved me, and if it helps any of you I'll be so happy.

Hey so i started vyvanse yesterday and even in a small initial dose I experienced something I have rarely if ever experienced: quiet, in my mind.
More updates as this works (or not) but like, I’m so confused that I’m not spending 80% of my energy just fighting internal tensions.
we all back and good and working again?

I just read that 80% of all insect biomass has disappeared in the past 25-30 years and friends this world will not be able to sustain life in a few more decades.
If anything I'm pretty sure the dire warnings have all been massively understated.
Great filter indeed.
One really important occult/philosophical/functional insight I've received from the author of this piece and others like it is this: It's not "as above so below", it's "as below so above".
The universe is an act of creation, and that creation is not ordered towards some known teleology - rather, it's spontaneous, and meaning is only ascribed afterwards.
Object permanence is a myth. What we mistakenly think of as object permanence is actually a (sometimes useful) illusion generated by a mind-virus that evolved symbiotically with human cognition - in other words, a story.
Recognizing the narrative DNA of such things doesn't necessarily mean it's useful or even desirable to deconstruct them, though.
As always, if you want to invite your friends, you can do so in the settings!
Sidekiq bumped, everyone. I've got to figure out how to boost the RAM it has available so this stops happening, which I'll do when I update us to a new version.
Which, hmm. I'm behind, but I know the project forked and I'm not sure which upgrade path to take? Who can link me to a meaningful read on this subject? Was there ever a resolution?
I wrote a thing about privilege. If this resonates, I'd appreciate a share!
hey all we back?
Yikes, sorry I boosted that super long toot into your feeds, I’m not sure what was going on with that but it was way over 500chars!
I particularly remember my year in Japan, where everyone played the gender game more aggressively even than in the US.
"Men are like this, women are like that" is just a common every day conversation, because that seems to be how gender mostly works. And I always always always changed the subject, because these cliches never really spoke to me.
Hi uh who wants to talk about gender?
I'm increasingly realizing that "I guess I don't really relate to masculinity and at most feel vaguely resentful that it's been used as a cudgel for assuming I have horrible views about others" is maybe a gender take.
I am comfortable owning 'cismale but not an asshole', after years of struggling to reconcile it, but have been thinking lately if I were 15 today I might go for nonbinary?
I posted some thoughts to birdsite about the spirit world. I’d love to hear your thoughts here if you find this interesting: https://twitter.com/mykola/status/1087725341152559106?s=21
Hi weirdos! It’s my birthday today, I’m 36! No exciting plans, Hannah is traveling and work is unusually busy so we’ll celebrate in a couple of weeks.
I just wanted to say: I’m incredibly grateful for all of you, for trusting me to create this space that you’re all imbuing with so much meaning.
This coming year I want to focus on giving more to my community - here and elsewhere.
Cheers, and thanks for keeping weirder earth weird!
any of you play FFXIV? I'm considering trying to get back into it...
